THE AVENAL ASSAULT.

The adjourned hearing of this case was taken on Tuesday. Mr Macalister agreed on behalf of his clients, Gillespie and Morton, to assume that they had entered Mrs Campbell’s house, hut they went there with the intention of looking for a friend and not for the purpose of creating - a disturbance. Inspector Mitchell agreed to leave the case in the magistrate's hands, without further comment., Mr McCarthy said it was admitted that the accused were under the influence of liquor and in justice to them he would say the assault was through thei being drunk, but it was not admitted that McXeilage was the worse’ of liquor, and he thought if ho imposed a fine of £5 and costs (£3 3s) to be paid between the two, it would meet the case. Inspector Mitchell asked that something should be passed to McNeilage, who had been put to considerable expense. The magistrate said he could only order half the fine to be paid to defendant, but he could proceed by civil action to recover his expenses.
