ROBBERY
Joseph Brown was charged with stealing three saws from a house
at Ashton. Thomas Henry Fisher said that he had been working
at the house, which was a new one, and was not yet finished. 
On the 12th inst., he left the saws in the house, and before he went
home he made all secure. When he returned on Monday morning
they had been stolen.  [Saws produced and identified].

Mary Catterall, landlady at the Cross Guns Inn, said that the
 defendant called at her house on Sunday 13th inst., and offered one
of the saws for sale to her husband.

He was arrested by PC. Primer, to whom he said that he'd been
given the saws by a man called Snape.

Committed for trial.
