Details:John Campbell per ship Bussorah Merchant, assigned to Donald McIntyre, charged with neglect of duty. Joseph Tree states - I am overseer to Mr. McIntyre and the prisoner is employed as a watchman and yesterday morning I saw a ram running about the bush; in going to the hurdles I met the prisoner and asked him if the sheep were all right. He replied they were. I went on to the hurdles and saw one flock not out. A short time after my master came; he and the shepherd counted them out and found two sheep short; one was found to be the ram which I saw and the other was a ewe found dead about 600 yards from the hurdles apparently recently killed by a native dog. Joseph Tree further deposes that whenever he appoints a watchman he invariably explains to them the nature of their duties. Amongst them that the sheep are always to be out of the hurdles at sun rise and this was explained to the prisoner and on this occasion it was an hour after sunrise when I found them in the hurdles. The prisoner states in his defence that he is unable to count the number of sheep and that the overseer did not give him precise instructions to turn the sheep out at sun rise and that he does not consider that on this occasion the sheep were longer in than usual. The Bench find the prisoner guilty of not putting the sheep out at sun rise and remand the case until next week for the attendance of the other shepherds to determine the reason
