CITY POLICE COURT.

Wishart, J.P.s.)

Stealing Fowls. —Hilem Dean, a Hindoo, was charged with having, on the 30th ult., stolen seven fowls and two shirts, the property of Ess Hech.—Mr Hnnlon said he appeared for the defence, and pleaded guilty under the following circumstances ; The accused had made a shirt for the prosecutor, a countryman, and, failing to get payment, had stolen the articles mentioned. Of course, the accused had a legal redress for being kept out of his money, and though he had committed a larceny he did so in ignorance of the law. —Sergeant O’Neil explained that the fowls and shirts were stolen from the prosecutor’s back yard on Thursday night, and were found in the possession of the accused.—The prosecutor, in answer to the Bench, denied that accused had made him a shirt or that he owed the accused any money. It was stated by the police that the accused was sentenced to one month’s imprisonment for assault in January last,— The Bench now sentenced him to fourteen days’ imprisonment with hard labor. The accused was further charged with having on the 29th ult, stolen two fowls, the property of Patrick Cooney.—The evidence showed that the fowls were stolen from an outhouse in Athol place on Wednesday night. The accused, who was seen in the neighborhood, sold them to a fellowcountryman on the following day.—On this charge he was sentenced to fourteen days’ imprisonment, cumulative on the previous sentence.
