Details: Samuel Beckett and Duncan Kennedy both in government service charged with being out of quarters at unseasonable hours and on suspicion of attempting a robbery at the Farm Cottage occupied by Rev. Threlkeld....Mr. Threlkeld states. ....between one and two oclock yesterday morning the dogs at the farm gave an alarm, I got out of bed and went to the camp of the native blacks near the house. One of them told me some white men had been there and had struck him with a musket and told him to be gone. A man servant at the farm searched the adjacent grounds and saw some men concealed who made off on perceiving him. Joseph Davis snapt his pistol at one of them but it missed fire. Throsby the black fired but missed his object.. Joseph Davis states - About 1/2 past twelve yesterday morning I was abed and heard the dogs making a great noise. A native black called Throsby came and called m and said there were white men with muskets threatening to shoot him. I got my pistol and opened the window but did not then see any stranger; I went to the fire where the blacks were and then saw a man at distance running. I cannot speak to his person. I did not go to bed but remained with the blacks. The master retired to the house. About an hour after one of the blacks told me there was a stranger behind one of the huts. I went and asked who was there but did not get an answer but a man ran away. I shot my pistol at him, it miss fired. Thosby fired but without effect. We followed the man a short distance but lost sight of him. Kennedy, the man I shot at was only five or six yards from him. Two native blacks, Throsby and Purcell state that they saw at the farm yesterday morning four men, two of them had muskets, the person who had the muskets were named Leary or Lowe, bot free. Leary struck Throsby with the butt end of his musket. Beckett and Kennedy were with them. In this stage of the proceedings the Chief Constable stated that from certain private information he had received it was probably on further enquiry the intentions of the prisoners in going to the farm would be brought to light. Prisoners remanded to the following day
