PENARTH. WOUNDING.—Alexander Johansen, 19, sailor, stood indicted at the Glamorgan Quarter Sessions on Wednesday last for unlawfully and maliciously wounding Per Wallfield Hagman by stabbing him in the arm with a knife at Penarth on May 21. The stab was the result of a brawl which started by the prisoner conducting himself offensively. Some blows were exchanged, and prisoner took out his knife and made a lunge. The jury returned a verdict of guilty, and prisoner was sentenced to two months' hard labour. THE PENARTH INTIMIDATION CASE.-William Jones, an able seaman, who was sentenced to seven years' penal servitude in the famous Penarth intimidation case, and whose sentence was, through the effects of Mr J. Havelock Wilson, ML P., subsequently reduced to four years, was released on Wednesday last from Pentonville Prison. Jones was met by Mr Havelock Wilson, M.P., and Mr Leslie Johnson, editor of Seafaring," and is now being well looked after by the Sailors and Firemen's Union. Jones will visit the principal ports and j address meetings on his prison experiences. He looks remarkably well, though much thinner. EXCITING INCIDENT.-On Thursday last the seven-year-old daughter of Mr Evan Hughes, miner, residing at Rickards-street, Pontypridd, had a narrow escape from drowning at Penarth. It appears that the parents of the child had taken her to the annual outing of the Sardis (Pontypridd) Band of Hope, and just below the landing-stage for the Penarth boats the little girl slipped into the sea, and was washed away by a wave. A man who was standing by immediately divested himself of hat and coat and jumped to the little one's help, and, assisted by the father, he soon succeeded in getting her to land. Miss Hughes was provided with a change of clothing at a neighbouring hotel, and left for Pontypridd at once. A reporter subsequently learned that the man who jumped into the tide and saved the little girl was Mr Edwin Hawkins, 21, South-street, Ynyshir. Mr Hawkins is the conductor of the Church choir at Ynyshir, and with a number of the choir members was spending the day at Penarth. Comments were made during the day that a number of people at Penarth had declined him a change of his wet clothing, and on being questioned, Mr Hawkins said it was two hours after the event that he found anyone who was considerate enough to give him the desired change.
