Thomas Pearson and William Pendlebury, were
drinking at the Shooters' Arms, Park Road, and
there being a sudden decline in the funds, the
latter worthy requested the other to go with him
to the house of William Yates, his father-in-law, 
from whence he abstracted two chairs and a table,
which they carried away between them, and sold
for a sum of money, which was speedily expended
in liquor. When arrested, Pendlebury said that it
was his property, and that he'd paid Pearson for
helping to carry it away.

In court, Yates was asked if Pendlebury lived with
him. He said, "Yes."  Pendlebury interjected and
said, "No. he lives with me."

The Magistrates discharged Pearson and committed
Pendlebury for trial.

On Monday evening, a number of weavers in connection with
Messrs. Horrockses and Millers' Yard Works, met at the
Shooters' Arms Inn, to present a beautiful flower and fruit stand
 to their late tackler, Mr. Marh Houghton, who has recently 
become the owner of the Shooters' Arms Inn, after having been
connected with the above firm for about 20 years.

Accompanying the presentation from the weavers was one 
from the little tenters, which consisted of a gallon and half a 
gallon jugs, and a quantity of glasses, this showing that
Mr. Houghton has been deservedly respected by both
old and young.
