VIOLENT ASSAULTS AT CARDIFF A One Legged Man. Two cases of violent and unprovoked aaaaolt were heard at the Cardiff Police Court to-day before Mr C. II. Evans and Mr David Duncan. The first charge was laid against Harry Solomafc by his wife, Catherine. The parties reside at 1. Ruby-street, and the prosecutrix alleged that tht prisoner eame home on Monday evening and asked for his dinner. She did not havs it ready, and in consequence of this be struck her on the h,-ad, Peos-,cutrix went into the passage, and tin prisoner followed behind her and indicted several blows on the head with a jug. Dr. Penroae said the blows caused three punctured wounds on the back of the bead and one incised wound on tht right side of the head. The prisoner was sent fti prison for a month with hard labour. The second cMO investigated affected George John Richards, who was charged with assaulting and wounding John Williams in Custom Hooao street on the 11th iDali. Williams waa standing in the doorway of the Gordon Coffee Tavern, when the prisoner came up to him and asked fat twopence to get a night's lodging. Proseootoc refused to give it to him, and thereupon Richard* struck him across the head with a walking-stiel^ inflicting a goodly-sized wound. This evidenM was corroborated by Charles Thomas, a by. stander, and the magistrates, characterising the assault as most unprovoked, sent Richards to prison for one month with hard labour. The prisoner, on descending the stops leading to the cells, turned to the magistrates and said, I thank you. I oan do that on ons leg." This seemed the only possible way for Db. prisoner to perform his sentence, as be waa already minus a second pedal member, and hobbled into the dock on a crutch.
