Several persons were proceeded against for drunken- ness, and were fined 5s and costs.

ASSAULT, Maria Brown, of Hill-street, was cbarged with assaulting Sarah Buckland, of St. Thomas Green. Mr W. M. Davies, of Bridge-street, appeared for the Complainant; and Mr Price for the defendant.

The complainant Called her an impudent thing in return, and was very touch frightened. The effect of the excitement on com- plainant was to bring on her premature confinement, which took place on the following day. The com- plainant's statement was corroborated by the evidence of her daughter. The defence was a denial of the assault, and two wit- nesses, called on behalf of the defendant, stated that when the street door was opened, the complainant crushed against the defendant and a relative, and forced her Way oetween them. They also deposed that. the defendant did not strike the complainant, and that she passed through the passage before she even made an observhtion to the complainant. The Bench were unanimously of opinion that the charge was proved, and ordered the defendant to pay a See of Is and costs, including the advocate's fee. The Bench also observed that it was a case which should have been settled out of Court. NEW LICENCES.
