THEFT FROM A BEER-HOUSE
A man named Richard Dagger was charged with
stealing a brass candlestick from the Ferret Tavern
beer-house, kept by James Tinckler, on Christmas
Eve.

The prisoner sold the article to a man named Moxham,
who disposed of it to a broker. The candlestick was one
of a pair, and the one corresponding to that stolen was
produced in court by Tinckler. The prisoner pleaded
guilty to the charge, and was sent to the House of
Correction for 14 days.

ASSAULT ON A POLICEMAN
P.C. Dawson charged a man named Michael Flinn
with assaulting him, on Sunday evening.

The prosecutor said that the prisoner was at the
Ferret Tavern in Friargate, when he, Dawson,
 called there. Flinn used threatening language to
the policeman, followed him, and ultimately
struck him with a life-preserver.

The prisoner's mother said that the policeman had 
struck her, and Flinn stated that the policeman
had struck him. Flinn also said that the policeman
was drunk.

The prisoner afterwards admitted that it was he
 that was drunk. Fined 20 s. and costs; or 21 days
