BANGOR PETTY SESSIONS. These sessions were held on Tuesday last, before Major Williams and the Rev. T. X. Williams. Drunkenness.—Edward Jones, carman from Bethesda, was charged by Superintendent Jones with being drunk in the streets oil the evening of the 13th ultimo, whilst in charge of a horse and car. Edward had nothing to say in his defence, and was fined 5s. and costs, as a caution. James Jones, Himel, a "thirsty soul," was also ohareed. by PC George Walters, with. a similar offence, committed in the city of Bangor. Mr. J n was too shamefaced to put in an "appearance" himself, but sent Mrs. Jones to represent him, who pleaded extreme poverty as a "defence." Fined Is. and costs. Another "wet" party—an old offender-named Rob Davies, Bryn Llwvd, Bethesda, was charged, by Serg. Owen Jones, with being drunk, and also with refusing to quit a public house when ordered to do so. Fined 5s. and costs. Assaulting a Police-oiffcer.—The same party, Robert Davies, was likewise charged, by P.C. 29 John Davies, with assaulting him on the same night, on the road near to Pout-y-twi, Bethesda, whilst iu the execution of his duty. The constable stated that he struck him with his fist in the face, he having a stone in his hand at the time. He was also inciting other parties to assault the police- officer. The defendant did not appear, and was fined £ 5, or, in default, 2 months' imprisonment. Wasting Water.—Thomas Maguire, John Jones, and Mary Williams, who all live in Upper Bangor, were summoned, by Mr. D. White, the manager of the Gas and Water Works, with wasting water, the property of the company, and unnecessarily so. All defendants denied having wilfully committed the offence, Iiiit fit,, charge was clearly proved by a young man, named Williams. Let off on paying the costs, 4s. Gd., and with a caution not to so offend again. The Major left the bench during the hearing of this case, as he is one of the directors of the Water Werks Company. Beer Art.-Ltile Williams, who keeps the Menai Bridge beerhouse, Bethesda, was summoued, by P.C. John Davies, for keeping open his house for the sale of beer during prohibited hours. The police-ofifcer proved that after eleven o'clock at Diht there were seven men in the house, drinking, each of whom had a glass of ale before him, quite "comfortably" like. The defendant pleaded that the great lecturer on "America" —one Jones, who has been to North America, where he edited a Welsh newspaper, and who employs iii, time in spouting something very much like treason to quarrymen and others—was staying at his house, and the parties who were then in the house were there to have a friendly chat with the leeturer. This being hi-; lirst offence, and as there was a little excuse, he was only mulct in the costs, 5s. Gd., but was cautioned not to oflend in the same way again, as he would not be so leniently dealt with. CiiluwfuHif talcing Sulmon.—John Jones, Bangor, alias Jack t)n Tumbler, was charged, b' Mr. W. S. White. head gamekeeper at Penrhyn Castle, with taking and killing an unseasonable salmon iu the river Ogwen. The offene" was proved by one of the watchers, named John Owen, who saw the defendant in the act of taking the lish with a rid and line; its "unreasonable- ness" being proved by Robert Buckland and Mr. Tho- mas, Port Penrhyn.—Fined 5s. and costs, or 14 days in gaol—committed, as Jack had no ready cash. Highway offence.—William Pemberton, Bangor, was charged with leaving his horse on the road by itself, so as to form an obstruction on the highway. The charge was proved by P.C. Goronwy Owen, and the defendant pleaded that the horse had strayed out of his field without his knowledge. The case was dis- missed. Threatening.—Richard Hughes, Glanadda, was bound over, in his own recognisances, in the sum of t5 to keep the peace for six months, as ag.iinst Anne Patterson, a neighbour of his, and whom, it seemed, he had been threatening with corporeal punishment. Ass(iotit.-fienry Mahoney was summoned for com- mitting an assault upon a little girl named Winefred Sheeran, in Bangor. The little girl said he squoze her hand until the blood almost burst out. This was corroborated by Mr. Nixon and Mr. Lloyd, Bank, who happened to witness the occurrence.—Order- ed to pay the costs, 4s. Gd.
