Manslaughter. Charles Edward Houghton, a railway labourer, was brought up in custody of P.C. Evan Evans, charged with the manslaughter of another railway labourer, named John Smith. It appeared from the evidence of the witnesses who were examined, that on Saturday last the deceased and the accused, with other labourers, were drinking together at the Three Horse Shoe public house, at Rhydypenau, when a quarrel took place between the deceased and the accused. They agreed to go out to the turnpike road in front of the house, where they fought for half an hour. The deceased afterwards returned to the public house, and was observed to throw up blood. The deceased died on Tuesday night last. The magistrates remanded the prisoner, and ordered the case to be fully heard in this town on Monday next, and that in the mean time a post-mortem examination on the body should take place.
