ASSAULT.-Thomas Bellamy and Minnie Bellamy appeared at the West Maitland police court, on Thursday, on a charge of assaulting and beating one James Beaumont, on Sunday last, 15th instant, Mr. Young appeared for the complainant, and applied for a postponement, on the ground that several material witnesses were absent. Mr. Levien, who appeared for the defendants, objected to a postponement, as the complainant had plenty of time to have had his witnesses present. He would, however, consent to an adjournment, if witnesses' expenses, and professional costs were allowed. Mr. Young would proceed with the case. James Beaumont deposed : On Sunday last, the 15th instant, I was in the defendants' house between half-past six and seven o'clock; I saw both defendants there; Mrs. Bellamy threw a glass of brandy and water in my face; the male defendant came from behind the bar and struck me a violent blow on the eye, which knocked me senseless; my eye bled ; I gave no provocation for the assault; I don't recollect what he said when he struck me, as I was senseless from the blow he gave me; before he assaulted me we had some dispute about an account that I owed him. Cross examined by Mr. Levien : I was sober enough to know what I was about; the defendant, Thomas Bellamy, came into the bar after I was there; Mrs. Bellamy was talking to me about the account before he came in; I did not call Mrs. Bellamy a liar, but I said it was a lie, that I did not owe all the money; when I said it was a lie he struck me; I didn't say Mrs. Bellamy was a b-y liar; I didn't close my fists at the defendant Thomas Bellamy, nor strike him. This was the case for the prosecution. - Rebecca Lester deposed: I am in defendants' employ; I remember Sunday last; I was in the bar when complainant came in when he first came in, he accused Mrs Bellamy of sending him a wrong bill. [Mr. Levien here submitted that the information was bad, inasmuch as it WAS a joint assault. The bench were unanimous in dismissing the objection.The witness continued: Mrs. Bellamy said it was a correct bill; some words then took place, and complainant said "You're a b-y liar;" Mr. Bellamy then came in; he asked complainant to repeat the words; complainant then said, " You're a b-y st-g liar," and challenged him to take it out of him (complainant); he then ran at Mr. Bellamy with his fists shut; Bellamy then struck him, and they fought; I was frightened, and went out; I saw complainant hit Mr. Bellamy once. By Mr. Young: I was in the bar when complainant first came in; Mr, Bellamy came in afterwards; I stayed behind the bar ; I was there all the time; I'll swear that Mrs. Bellamy did not throw a glass of brandy in complainant's face; complainant said it was a wrong bill, and he would not pay it; when he called her a b-y liar, Mr. Bellamy came in, and said to complainant, "Call her it again;" complainant then said, " It's a b-y ft-g lie, -Daniel Furry was also called for the defence, and gave evidence similar to that of the previous witness.

They were of opinion that an assault had been committed, and would fine the defendant Thomas Bellamy the small penalty of 5s.-On the application of Mr. Young, professional costs, &o,, were granted.

West Maitland Police Court Proceedings
INSULTING WORDS.-On Thursday, at the West Maitland police court, Thomas Bellamy was charged with having used insulting language towards John Green on the 27th instant, whereby a breach of the peace might have been occasioned. Mr. Young appeared tor the defendant. The complainant's case was : On Sunday night last, between half-past eight and nine o'clock, he was passing down High-street on his way home, and when at the corner of High and Albert streets he met the defendant, and as he passed, he said, " Good evening, Tom." Defendant replied, " Good evening, Ranger." He afterwards said, " You're a mean thing for putting the Town Ranger on to my horses." Complainant replied that he did not put defendant's horses alone out. Defendant then called him a b-y mean thing, and said if he came round the back he would take it out of him. He afterwards put up his hands, and said he had a good mind to smash his (complainant's) b-y nose. A constable came up, and complainant asked him to take the defendant in charge, but he did not do so. Complainant then said he would summons Bellamy. He gave the defendant no provocation. In the early part of the week he turned the defendant's horses out of his employer's hay shed. - The complainant called Andrew Crothers and Constable Dummett. The former heard the defendant "threaten to smash Green's by nose if he came round the back." The latter, who was on duty in High street, came on the scene when he heard Bellamy say to Green, "Come round the back and I'll smash your nose." Green wanted to give the defendant into his custody, but as he did not say what it was for, witness would not arrest him. -For the defence, Thomas Jones stated that he did not hear Bellamy make use of any insulting word. Green and Bellamy were talking in a loud manner, but witness could not distinguish the words. He was standing only a very short distance away from the parties. -Henry Chivers was present on the night in question,but did not hear the defendant make use of the words mentioned in the information. Bellamy did say that "if he (Green) came round into Grogan's yard he would take it out of him." -Mr. Young addressed the bench for the defence. -The bench considered the case fully proved, and that the conduct of the defendant was most disgraceful. He was fined £2 and costs, in default to be imprisoned for one month.
