180619 Gosling Robert Planter 1832 23 October 1835 Newcastle Newcastle Court of Petty Sessions, Bench Books, 1833-1836 (Ancestry)
John Mills per Marquis of Huntley, assigned to Rev. Threlkeld, charged with theft....Daniel Sullivan, Asia 1831, attached to the road party, being duly sworn says...I was discharged from the hospital on the 11 th last and got my pass to proceed to the gang. I went to Mr. Craig for a knife which the senior Wardsman had in charge. On making a search in the drawers, Mr. Craig could not find it. Having seen the room where I was lying sick, a knife very like mine and which the prisoner had sold to another patient. I told Mr. Craig, who ordered a search to be made. I told him it was of no use as I knew the knife was hidden. Before I was discharged I was present when the prisoner was offered by the patient alluded to have the knife returned for five pence and a loaf of bread. As he said there would be a row about it. When Mr. Brooks heard of the circumstances he sent me for a constable to take the prisoner into custody. On my returning the wardsman and the prisoner at the bar met me and they said the knife could not be found but offered me eight pence to hold my tongue. I have not got the knife since. Robert Gosling per Planter, assigned to Alexander Busby, and now a patient in the hospital being sworn...The prisoner at the bar offered me a knife for sale some time ago, which I bought for six pence. It was a sailors knife with a square top to the blade.....Mr. Robert Craig, Superintendent of the Hospital, testified...The prisoner at the bar has access to the dispensary every day, in a drawer in which room the knife was kept. He had no knife of his own to the best of my belief. Sullivan told me he had seen this knife in the prisoners possession. I asked the prisoner if he had taken the knife, he replied yes. I then ordered him never to come again into the dispensary as I would not have a thief there....No defence. John Mills acknowledged the theft and was sentenced to receive twenty five lashes
