The house of Mrs. Eccles, of the Watering Trough Inn,
Water Lane, was robbed of about £8 in money, on
 Saturday evening last, the thieves having entered an 
upper room while the family were busily engaged
below. There is not the slightest clue that is likely
to lead to the apprehension of the parties concerned.

BURGLARY
On Saturday, at the Town Hall, a young man named
John Smalley, a man of notoriously bad character, was
charged with breaking into the house of Mr. Henry 
Weaver, of the Watering Trough public-house, Fylde
Road, and stealing a quantity of wearing apparel and
other articles.

It appeared in evidence that the house was broken into
about three weeks ago, and the prisoner was traced
after having pledged some of the articles.

He was further charged with a similar offence at the
Rawsthorne Arms, Water Lane End.

He was sentenced to 15 years transportation.

EXCISE CASE
A respectable man, named James Pinder, formerly
landlord of the Watering Trough Inn, was fined
£25 at the Town Hall, on Wednesday last, for having 
spirits illegally in his possession.
Preston Chronicle 11th February 1843

BREAKING WINDOWS
William Shenty and a soldier named James Austin, 
were charged with breaking on Saturday night last, 
at the Watering Trough, one glass and eleven window
panes, and also assaulting the landlord.Two witnesses
 substantiated the evidence of the landlord.

The soldier denied doing any damage, although he did
admit to striking the landlord, having been hit first.
Shenty denied having done anything wrong, and said 
that he was the injured party. It appears, however, 
that he had offered to make up the landlord's loss.

The soldier was ordered to pay one half of the damages; 
and Shenty, who had been before the Bench on a
previous occasion, was ordered to pay the other half, and 
to find bail, as a surety for his good behaviour.
