DRUNIC AT CABRLEON.—Ada Harris was fined 10s. for being drunk and disorderly at Caerleou. SERIOUS CHARGE AGAINST POLICEMEN.—P.S. George Lewis and P.C. John Rowlands were summoned for assaulting and beating Samuel Jennings at Caerleon.—Jennings said he was a mason. On the 9th of May he was returning homo when, without a word of warning, Sergeant Lewis caught hold of him and threw him into a cart, in which he took him to the police station. He did not know the reason for the arrest. All the way to the station Lewis knelt on his chest, and when they reached the station he was placed in the cell, where Lewis punched him in the face and said, "Take that." and while he was in a stupor he had an impression that the two defendants forced their hands into his pockets and abstracted his purse. He afterwards found a few coppers in his purse, whereas there should have been five or six shillings. He was brought before Mr. Jenkins in the morning, but stated that he was too unwell to defend himself. He was charged with being drunk and disorderly, and discharged. His face was much cut about, while his back and chest were covered with bruises.-Cross-examined by Mr. T. P. R. Herbert, who appeared for the defeuce, Jennings admitted having been arrested on a previous occasion. Owing to the plaintiff having omitted to call his witnesses, the case was adjourned; until 3.30 on 119-tiday afternoon, -SERIOUS CHARSE AT LLANGATTOCK;— A married couple, Henry and Annie Davies, were charged with illtreating and neglecting Annie Marshall, at Llangattocb.—Mr. W. L. Moore appeared to prosecute on behalf of the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children. Prisoners pleaded guilty.—Inspector A. J. Coates, N.S.P.C.C., stated that on the 18th of June, in company with Sergeant Lewis, he visited the defendant's house at Llangattock. He saw the female defendant, and examined the child. She was one mass of bruises from the nape of the neck to the buttocks. Both shoulders, elbows, and forearms, the legs, and especially the right thigh, were covered with old and new bruises, large and small. She was in a dirty condition, and her head was full of vermin, but she was fairly well nourished. Witness went upstairs, and in a corner of the little girl's bedroom, which was in a dirty state and stank abominably, was her bed, a collection of old garments and loo^e feathers, which the defendant said was good enough for her." Defendant to!d the inspector that she took the child out of pity three months ago. The parents had deserted their children. The father had left them two years ago, and the mother, when she came out of the Newpoit Workhouse, had distributed her five children among her relatives, with the exception of Annie. Subsequently, he saw the male prisoner, who was a farm labourer, earning 16s. a week, and he said, We cannot do anything with her she is a dirty child." He admitted beating her. Witness thereupon removed the child to the Newport Union.—Nurse Davies, children's nurse at the Newport Workhouse, said when the child left her care in February she was clean, well-behaved, and nicely-conducted. There were then no marks or bruises upon her. She corroborated the evidence given as to her subsequent condition.—Mr. Henry Richards, butcher, and Dr. W. Bassett, Newport, also gave evidence.—The female defendant stated that she received nothing for the care of the child, and had not seen the mother since she had received the child. Annie had dirty habits, and used bad language.—The Chairman said the Bench con- sidered the case a very bad one. The male prisoner would be sent to prison for three months and the woman for one month, both with hard labour. I. pon hearing the verdict the woman became hysterical, and was removed crying bitterly. The man subsequently joined in, and their cries could be heard for a long time during the next case.
