USK AND PONTYPOOL HIGHWAY BOARD
The first meeting of this Board was held at the Town Hall, Usk, on Tuesday last, there being present:-
The article continues, for a while further, although since the two gentlemen with Glascoed links do not appear, I have not reproduced it. If you are interested, please contact me and I’ll put it onto the site.
THREATS.—Philip Lewis was charged with having used threats towards Joseph Goodenough. Mr W.H. Lloyd appeared for defendant. The defendant, it seems, resides at Glascoed, and having quarrelled with and separated from his wife, he blamed complainant for having caused his connubial infelicity, and in so doing made use of the threats alleged. From several questions proposed by Mr. Lloyd it would appear that complainant had, at the request of the parties, transacted business between them. Defendant was ordered to enter into sureties of the peace and pay 11s. costs.
USK AND PONTYPOOL HIGHWAY BOARD
The second meeting of this Board was held at the Town Hall, Usk, on the 12th inst., there being present: Mr. Thomas Watkins, chairman: Mr. John Morgan, vice-

The testimonials of about 20 candidates for the office were then examined, and the following nominations were afterwards made: Mr. Francis Morgan, Prescoed; proposed by Mr. Moseley and seconded by Mr. Watkin Herbert, Mr. Pruett, Goytrey, proposed by Mr. Wm. Gwatkin and seconded by Mr. Greenhow-
Mr. William Davis, Manager of the Usk Branch of the Banking Corporation Limited, was appointed honorary Treasurer.
The Surveyor was ordered to proceed forthwith to examine the roads of the district, and prepare a report of the state of the roads, fences, and water-
The Clerk was ordered to obtain from the late parish surveyors the books relating to the highways of the several parishes within the district.
The meeting was then adjourned to Friday, the 9th of June at the Town Hall, Usk.
FATAL ACCIDENTS – TWO MEN KILLED.
INQUESTS ON THE BODIES
Two men unfortunately lost their lives in this locality last week-
In respect to the first-
William Williams said: I am a labourer in the employment of the Great Western Railway Company; my duty at present is to keep a fire under a railway bridge near to the spot where this accident happened; the fire is kept there for the purpose of shewing a light whilst the bridge is undergoing repair; between the hours of 10 and 11 o’clock on the night of 18th of May I saw a man pass within six yards of me, and about five minutes after he had passed I heard a fall, and then I heard as if a man had fallen into the brook; on going to look for assistance to Mrs. Davies’ I heard a man groaning in the stream of water on the road side; having procured a light and assistance I returned to the place, and found that other people had been attracted there; it was very dark; I found a man lying on his back in the brook; he appeared to have been much injured, and was brought to this house; there’s a fall from the road to the brook of about 13 feet, and a man walking up there on a dark night might easily fall in, as there is no protection against such an occurrence except some old rails towards the sides; the centre part (where the man fell in) is quite unprotected; the light under the bridge had nothing to do with this part of the road, nor was it any part of my duty to caution any person about this spot, which I call a very dangerous place; I believe the man who passed me under the bridge to be the same man who fell into the brook. I did not see any sign of his being intoxicated; when he passed he asked me if he was on the right road for the Cwm; I told him he was; the road to the Cwm is nearly in a direct line from the spot where he fell over; the night was dark.
John Williams, M.D.. On Thursday night, about 11 o’clock, I was sent for to see an injured man at the Hanbury Arms Inn; on examining him, I found that he had sustained a compound fracture of the skull, three scalp wounds about two inches in length, fracture of the collar bone, and fracture of both bones of the right leg; he told me he had fallen into the brook, indicating the place near the railway; he was perfectly sensible, and quite sober as far as I could judge; he lived until the evening of Saturday, the 20th instant, when he died from the injuries he had received. I have seen the place where he fell over, and I think the injuries likely to have occurred from a fall of that description.
Joseph Goodenough examined; I am road surveyor to the Panteague Local Government Board; I have seen the spot where this accident occurred; there is a fall there of about 13 feet, perpendicular, and a stream of water (very little water in it at present) running underneath; I think it a very likely place for a man to walk onto on a dark night; it is a very dangerous place, and quite unprotected; I do not survey this part as it does not belong to the parish; it is on the side of the road which I survey; it had been protected by posts and rails, but they had given way, and are out of repair. I believe they were put up by the West Midland Railway Company, but I don’t know who put them up; they were put up at the time the culvert was mad, about 10 or 11 years ago; it is my duty to call the attention of the Board to any dangerous place, or to any repairs wanting on the road; I have reported them to the Board as a dangerous part of the road, and I made a special report to the Road Committee in the beginning of the month of April last; the Board directed me to call the attention of the Great Western Railway Company to the spot, as it did not belong to the parish but to the Company in question; I spoke to Mr. Roberts, inspector of the permanent-
Jacob Roberts examined: I am an Inspector of the permanent way on the Great Western Company’s line of railway; I know the place referred to, it did not come under my inspection in any way connected with my duty; the Road Surveyor camr to me in the month of April last, and called my attention to this place; he said it was the Company’s duty to repair it; I told him the Company had nothing to do with it, and that if he had any claim to make in respect to the matter, he write it out and give it to me, and I would take care it was placed before the proper authorities, and the matter would be settled at once; I never heard anything further about the subject until after the accident; I remember this part of the road being fenced by the Newport and Abergavenny Railway Company; twelve months after that was done I formed one of a party, although occupying a different position on the line to what I do at present, to hand this road over to the parish, Wm. Lester was the Surveyor at that time; he expressed himself well satisfied with the state of the road; and I have no doubt but the Company have documents to exonorate them from any responsibility.
The Coroner expressed his opinion that the responsibility of repairing or protecting this place rested upon the Panteague Local Government Board, and said they ought to have repaired it and charged the expense to who might be responsible, after which the jury returned a verdict of “Accidental death,” with a request to the Coroner that he would write to the Chairman of the Board in question, calling his attention to the dangerous place, with a view to immediate means being taken for the protection of the public.
[We have since been informed that Mr. Goodenough, the Surveyor of the Board, has already caused the place to be fenced.]

COUNTY COURT, TUESDAY, before J.M. HERBERT, Esq., Judge.
Henry Watkins v. George Roberts.—Mr. W.H. Lloyd for plaintiff, and Mr. D.E. Partridge for defendant. Plaintiff, a farmer, residing in the parish of Llanbaddock, sought to recover £5 5s. for rent, and value of manure removed, contrary to agreement, off certain premises in the hamlet of Glascoed let to defendant. The plaintiff stated that he let a house, stable, and a small field of about 25 perches, to defendant at an annual rent of £5 5s. under an agreement dated 1st May 1863 [put in], which provided that “no manure be taken off the premises,” and reserving to plaintiff the right to the “run for a pig, barring the fruit season;” on the 1st August he tracked a cart two journies from a hedge on the other side of which defendant’s manure was standing, to an orchard in the occupation of a person named Pitt, in which he (plaintiff) afterwards saw dung strewn about; on the 22nd December he tracked another cartload to Pitt’s; on the 21st February he saw two waggon-

John Davies, schoolmaster, and parish clerk for the parish of Mamhilad, was summoned by Sarah Morgan for the support of her illegitimate child. Mr. Greenway appeared for complainant, and Mr. Alexander Edwards for defendant, the latter of who was frequently called to order by both the legal gentlemen employed and the Bench for the annoying and impertinent manner in which he conducted himself during the early part of this investigation.
Complainant said: I am a widow residing at Mamhilad and was confined of a male child on the 15th of April, of which John Davies, the defendant, is the father. By Mr. A. Edwards: I had two children by my husband-
Ann Williams, wife of Joseph Williams, who lived next door to complainant, said she had frequently seen the parties together, from May to July; she had seen defendant catch complainant by the hand, and pull her out of the housel it was generally understood in the neighbourhood that the parties were courting, and they appeared as lovers. By Mr. A. Edwards: Have never seen anything improper take place between them,
Emma Williams, a younger sister of complainant, deposed to the parties being considered as lovers, and to the fact of defendant giving her threepence to fetch some apples, during which time complainant and defendant were left in the house together. In cross-
Hannah Jenkins gave testimony in support of the last witness.
Margaret Williams, mother of complainant, deposed to defendant coming to her house to see complainant, and to his pulling her about, walking out with her, and to his having had his arm around her.
Ann Powell, wife of George Powell, said: I am sister to complainant; I know defendant very well; I knew him as coming to court my sister; first saw them together in May, or beginning of June; I remember they went to send me home one night; after they had left me to return home I found that I had left some things behind, and in returning to fetch them I overtook the parties -
This being all the evidence adduced in support of complainant’s case, Mr. Alexander Edwards briefly addressed the Court, in which he dwelt on the suspicious nature of the evidence given -
John Davies, the defendant, on being called, said: On the 8th of July I went to Beaufort; I went by the four o’clock train to Crumlin; the next day I returned from Ebbw Vale by the 7.15 p.m. train, and arrived at Crumlin by the train due at 8.10 p.m., and walked home to Mamhilad; I went straight from Crumlin home; I did not go to complainant’s house that night; I never had connection with Sarah Morgan; I distinctly swear that I never authorised anyone to offer her 1s. 6d. a week on my account; I never knew that she was in the family-
Mr. Greenway then proceeded to cross-
David Davies; I am brother of defendant, and live at Beaufort; I had a letter from him (produced), relative to his coming to Beaufort; he was there on the 8th, and returned on the 9th of July.
Mr. Greenway said the letter amounted to nothing, as the envelope had not been produced with it.
In answer to Mr. Greenway, witness hesitated to say who it was that told him to search for the letter, when defendant told him what to say.
This being all the evidence, Mr. Greenway made a lengthened address on behalf of his client, in which he remarked that the only catch the other party appeared to have in the whole case was that in which they wished to shew that it was on the 2nd and not on the 9th of July when the complainant and defendant walked with Mrs. Powell.
After a short consultation the Bench stated its determination to reserve its decision until this day fortnight.
At Llanvihangel Torymynydd, June 27, by Rev. William James, B.A., vicar of Llanellen, William, second son of the late John Morgan of The Hill, Glascoed, to Emma Rachel, second daughter of the Rev. John Price, rector of Llanvihangel Torymynydd.
A DISHONEST COMPANION.-
A FOOL AND HIS MONEY.-
DEATH FROM A FALL IN A HAY FIELD.-
TOWN HALL, SATURDAY, before H.M. KENNARD, and F.J. MITCHELL, Esquires,
A “BIDDLE” AT THE GLASCOED.— Richard Stretton, was charged with having sold beer, &c., without a license, at Glascoed. This appeared to be one of those instances in which parties seek to raise a little money by having what is known as a “Biddle,” and the particulars of this case may be gathered from the following evidence:-
Martha Meredith said she was at a “tea party” held at Defendant’s house, on the evening of Sunday last, and at about ten o ‘clock at night saw them selling beer and spirituous liquors there. Superintendent Mc. Intosh deposed that the whole of Glascoed was in a ferment in consequence of the drinking that had taken place at defendant’s house. A friend had obtained for him a special license for selling drink on the Monday, and there was a good deal of such work carried on in the country villages. John Williams said that he, amongst others, purchased a jug of beer, for which he paid, on Sunday, in the house in question. In answer to the charge, defendant’s wife said that in consequence of her being lame, they had incurred some debts, and had adopted this mode of obtaining money to discharge them. Defendant was convicted in the penalty of 40s., including costs.
ROBBERY FROM THE PERSON.-
James Powell, 20, labourer, was charged with stealing a pair of boots, the property of David Saunders, at the hamlet of Glascoed, on the 24th June, 1865. Mr Somerset, prosecutor stated that on the day in question, he bought a pair of boots at the shop of Mrs Gould, in Pontypool; and he afterwards went on his way home to Glascoed with the prisoner; he was sober when he bought the boots, but he afterwards became drunk, and fell asleep by the side of the footpath, and when he awoke the boots and a wallet he had with them in were gone; on the following morning he saw prisoner and asked him about the boots, when he told him to “keep dark” as he did when he lost a pair of trousers, and he would very “likely hear tell of them.” The boots were ulitimately found at Bloom’s pawnshop, Pontypool, where they had been pledged by the prisoner, who had previously offered them for sale at the shop of Mrs. Gould, saying he had them from a man named Greenwood. Afterwards, when at the police-
George Clements, 22, farm laborer, was charged with feloniously stealing a purse and seven sovereigns, the property of George Roberts, at the parish of Monkswood, on the 22nd July, 1865. Mr. Cleave prosecuted; the prisoner was undefended. The facts of this case having appeared in our columns as recently as last week, a recapitulation of them here will be unnecessary. The jury found the prisoner guilty and he was sentenced to three months hard labor.
