TOWYN. RAKA Avis.-A fine specimen of the great Grebe was shot a few days ago by one of Kichard Dobson, Esij.'s keepers. This specimen of bird is rarely or ever seen in this locality. The one in question was the size of a goose and stood three feet high. PETTY SESSroxs,- These sessions were held on Fri- day, in the rooui at the new Police-office, High-street, before W. W. E. Wynne, and John Pughe, Es,irs. Charge of Xeglectiny to Maintain a Wife.—A man named Hugb. Jones, a labourer, was charged upon the complaint of Mr Lewis Williams, relieving officer of the Machynlleth Union, with neglecting to support his wife, who had become chargeable to the Union. Mr Griffith Jones Williams, solicitor, Dolgelley, ap- peared for the defendant aud objected to the informa- tiou, as the defendant was charged with wilful neglect, or refused to maintain, and he (Mr Williams) was pre- pared to prove that the wife had left the defendant of her own accord. He maintained that when a wife so left her husbaud of her own accurd the husband could not be made liable for her maintenance, and quoted several cases in proof that the charge must be dismissed. The Justices retired to cousult, and on their return said they had made up their minds to go ou with the case and Mr Williams then applied for a warrant against Andrew Davies, a witness for the defendant, who had refused to attend after being served with a sum- mons. A warrant was granted, and placed in the hands of P.C. Metcalfe, but the witness, it appears, could not be found, consequently the case was adjourned till next sessions. Drunk and Disorderly. -John Jones, Corris, was charged by P.C. Cadwaladr Joaos, with being drunk and riotous at the above village, ou November 14th, aud was mulcted in the penalty of 10s and costs. Richard Owen, of the same place was also charged by the same officer with being druuk and fighting John Jones ul1 the same evening. Fiued los and costs. Assault.—Owen Humphreys was charged with as. saulting William Davies, a boy thirteen years old.-lr David Pugh, solicitor, Dolgelley, appeared for the com- plaiu,mt. -William Davies deposed, that ou the 1th of November he was playing near the school, when the defendant told him that he was not playing fair, and comiug over beat him and kicked him on the head. He tried to get from him but he followed him to the house, kicked the dour, and told his mother he would kill hin. —Two witnesses were called, who saw the defendant runuing after complainant, who was crying.—Defendant called Edward Williams, who said that the defendant did not kick complainant, but that complainant had struck him with a stone. Cross-examined by Mr D. Pugh I am in service at the sau,e place as defendant. I have not had any conversation with Owen Humphreys about the case since it happened, although I was served with a subpcBua to attend.—The Magistrates seeing it was a frivolous Jcase, very properly dismissed it, ad- vising both for the future to be on terms of intimacy. Setting Fire to a Bam at Abergynolmyn.—John Jones, a by twelve years of age, was charged with setting fire to a barn containing a quantity of oats, whereby the whole had been destroyed, the property of J. H. McCon- nel, but Mr J. P. Williams, agent, being from home did not appear to prefer the charge.—Mr U. Ptigli said he came there to answer the charge, which was a very serious one, and had brought a number of witnesses down from Abergynolwyn. He applied to the Bench for their costs, aud complained of the conduct of the prosecutor not having given him notice so as to prevent the witnesses attending.—The question of costs was considered by their Worships.
