illings a year, carried herself more majestically than any royal person I have since seen, and seemed to be always impressing her dignity on one. There was Mr. Jones, of Hurblas, Jones, of Tynewydd, Jones, of Craig Fawr, Hugh, the black-smith, Sam Ellis, the navvy — they are revived in my mind now, and I fail to see what cause they had of being so inordinately haughty as I remember them to have been. Then there was my aunt — she was proud, David was proud — they were all exceedingly proud in lted, for they were deep in the third quart! All the combativeness of the Welsh nature then was at white heat. This would be the time for Dick Griffiths — wooden-legged Dick — to indulge in sarcasm at the expense of the fiery butcher; and for Sam Ellis, the black-browed navvy, to rise and challenge them both to a bout of fisticuffs; and then would follow sad scenes of violence, for John, who was gamey as a bantam-cock, would square off at the word. But, at this critical moment, Aunt Mar

thise, it is probable that I should have retained the belief that Wales was the finest country in the world, and the Welsh people the best. I used to believe the Bishop was the holiest man living; the Rev. Mr. Smalley, of Cwm, the biggest man; Sam Ellis, of Llanbach, the strongest man; Hicks Owen, the finest preacher; my cousin Moses, the most scholarly; the Vale of Clwyd, the prettiest; Liverpool, the biggest and most populous town; and the Welsh people, the superior of any in the whole world. Without any effort of mine, or anybody else's, to disabuse me of these illusions, I have seen hundreds just as holy as the Bishop, bigger men than the Cwm rector, stronger men than Sam Ellis, better preachers than Hicks Owen, men more scholarly than Moses Owen, prettier scenery than the Clwyd, richer and more populous towns than Liverpool, and more advanced people than the Welsh! The training of young men, and education When I was young, a religious and moral training was considered
On Sunday night the negro boy gave his watch to the night watchman of the house who laid it upon the mantel-piece, and the next-morning it was missing. Capt. Sam Ellis, Clerk of the First Market, testified that on Thursday Mr. Robb and a negro boy came to him and asked him to arrest a man who had stolen a watch, pointing him's, and on going there ascertained that such a watch had been left there for repairs. Told him not to let any one have it. Dawson then passed by the store, and Capt. Ellis went out and arrested him. Said his name was John O'Brien. Found upon him a pistol engraved "Judge Colt to Lieut. Hill." Prisoner then said his name was Condon it until the matter could be investigated. Cline sub-sequently came for the watch, but he refused to give it to him, and Cline said that was all right. When Captain Ellis was there, the negro boy who claimed the watch described it exactly before it was shown to him. B. B. Ayres, of the American Hotel, testified in regard to
ng on her way from Petersburg to Manassas as a nurse, and that in searching for the accommodation desired she had staid in some place quite long, and prisoner had gone off with her baggage, afterwards, however, reporting the circumstances to the police. He was discharged. John N. Dunn and John Kearney were sent to jail for fighting in the 1st Marked House, thereby disturbing the peace. Dunn charged Kearney with stealing a watch, hence the fight, which was very soon interrupted by Capt. Sam Ellis, the clerk and police of that locality. Thomas Herron, Pat. Snowe, Robt. Freeman, John S. Gerron, Thomas Carney, and Jas. I. Ritchie were committed for breach of the peace, Friday night. The parties wore uniforms. The last named defendant is said to have disported himself in an unseemly manner at the "Varieties," thereby interrupting the performances and depriving a large number of his fellow-citizens from the enjoyment they hoped to derive by seeing the play.
