ATTEMPT TO UTTER BASE COIN
James Woof was charged with two attempts to utter a 
base crown-piece at the Horse Shoe public house, and
the Queen's Hotel, Butler Street.

The prisoner said that Mr. Bannister, beerhouse
keeper in Butler Street, had put the 5 shilling piece
in his hand and said, "Here Jack, go and get a 
glass of ale and come back again."

PC. Byrne said that when he arrested Woof, he told
him that he got the coin at Liverpool Races.
