John McNichol, in service of Charles Griffiths charged with theft and absconding from his masters service. Charles Griffiths states - the prisoner was assigned to me last week. I purchased a pair of shoes for him, for which I paid twelve shillings; I also gave him a blanket. On Tuesday last he absconded from my farm taking away the blanket and shoes. I also lost at the same time a bag, a knife, 2 balls of cotton, 3 silver spoons about ten pounds of flour and seven pounds of beef. I cannot say the prisoner stole these articles but they disappeared about the same time that he did. Thomas Bishop constable, being sworn states - I was sent in pursuit of the prisoner. On my way to Wallis Plains I met Mr. Sparke s shepherd who told me that McNichol had been at his hut and had exchanged with him a blanket for a shirt. I took the blanket form him. He told me McNichol had gone to Wallis Plains. I followed and found him there and took him into custody. I was assisted in the pursuit by two black natives. I took the shirt from him. That and the blanket are those before the court. The shoes now produced were on his feet at the time I took him. The prisoner admits having taken the blanket and shoes - states they were given to him by Mr. Griffiths. Denies knowledge of the other articles.

There were other persons in the house at the time and there was liquor on the table. Thomas Bishop, a constable states - I went to Young s house yesterday for some provisions for a prisoner in the watch house. Whilst there Johanna Lane came from a back room complaining that she had been struck by one of Mr. Dun s servants.
