TOWN HALL, USK, Friday-Before G. R. G., Relph, F. M'Donnell, and S. Churchill, Esquires, and the Reverend W. Evans.

ASSAULT.—Caroline Meredith and James Meredith, her son, of the hamlet of Glascoed, were charged with having unlawfully assaulted and beat Mary Ann Jones, on Sunday, the 12th of July. Mr. Henry Roberts appeared for the defence. The magistrates considered the case a very frivolous one, and that the female defendant had been aggravated to the assault by the conduct of the complainant, and dismissed the case-the costs to be paid between the parties. Mary Ann Jones was called on to pay 7s. 6d., and Caroline Meredith 3s. 6d.
