The Amberley Burglars.

THE APPEAL AGAINST THEIR SENTENCE DISMISSED.

Wellington, July 13

The judgment in the Appeal Court in Bex v. Allandale and Dennett was unanimous against the prisoners. The Chief Justice eaid the evidence was not only sufficient to entitle the jury to convict Allandale, but if they had nob, the verdict would have been unreasonable. As to Dennett, the case was somewhat different, but the evidence was suph that the onus cast on him of showing where he was at the time of the robbery, and explaining other matteis which connected him with it, had not been discharged, There was, therefore, evidence on which the jury could properly convict Dennett also. Justices Williams, Kdwards, and Cooper also delivered their written judgments, examining the evidence at length, and arriving at the same conclusion. The motion for a new trial was dismissed.
