Details: John Brooks, free by servitude, charged with drunkenness. Constable Peter Riley, states - yesterday in the afternoon between 4 and 5, I saw five or six men in the road crowded together as if they were fighting. I went towards them and found Brooks stripped to fight. I interfered and prevented Brooks from striking a man who was of the crowd and I took Brooks to the watch house. He was not very drunk; seemed to know what he was about; he was able to walk but was in a state of intoxication and very quarrelsome. Constable Thomas Dwyer states - I saw a mob assembled together yesterday afternoon and went with Riley to disperse it. We found Brooks stripped except his trowsers, - his shirt lying on the grass; it appeared to me he wanted to strike a man who was standing near. Brooks was intoxicated. I assisted riley to take hi to the watch house. John Brooks fined 5 shillings or two hours in the stocks. The prisoner expressing his determination not to pay the fine, in language highly disrespectful to the court, his sentence to the stocks is extended to three hours.

Details: Thomas Newton, per ship Mary, in government service charged with theft. Mrs. Mary Beattie states - On Saturday evening last I had a quantity of wearing apparel in a bucket at my house. I saw them in the front room about 1/2 eight o clock. I did not miss them before yesterday morning about nine o clock when I found the bucket had been emptied of its contents with the exception of a bed gown an apron and a pair of drawers. In the course of the day I was informed by White the sawyer that with good management I might recover my loss as the things had been offered to him, and that he was to see the person again who had them at nine o clock. It was agreed between White and Riley the Constable as to the manner they would proceed to get the stolen articles into their possession and I supplied Riley with three dollars to assist him in his operations. The articles now produced in court are those which were stolen from my house with the exception of a pair of trowsers in which they were wrapt. William White states - On Saturday night I was at the residence of the man who works with me. I had gone to him to borrow some charge, it was about half past 8 o clock. Whilst I was there the prisoner came in, he had a bundle with him which appeared to contain clothes some of which he offered for sale, I told him I had no objection to purchase anything that would suit me but I did not purchase any. Yesterday I heard of Mrs. Beattie having been robbed, I sent for her and communicated what I have now related. It was concerted between Riley the Constable and myself as to the manner in which I was to endeavour to obtain possession of the stolen goods, and he gave me three dollars to make the purchase. About nine o clock last night I went to the public Well and there met the prisoner and got from him the articles now before the court. Riley was close at hand and immediately apprehended the prisoner and took the things into his own charge. Peter Riley, constable states - I know of the robbery at Mrs. Beatties on Saturday night and yesterday I was sent for to her house when she informed me that White the sawyer could give me some information respecting it. A message was despatched to White requesting his attendance and he immediately came. He told me he had seen some of the articles stolen in the possession of the prisoner who had offered them for sale and that he had no doubt but they could be obtained for a trifle. It was then arranged that White should be furnished with three dollars which dollars Mrs. Beattie let me have and I handed them over to White having first put a mark on each of them by a nick under the figure 8. White then went away to make the bargain. Having afterwards learnt that the property was to be handed over to White at nine o clock that night near the public Well. I concealed myself in that neighbourhood and saw the prisoner met White at the hour appointed and deliver over the White the property now produced in Court upon which I immediately took the prisoner into custody and on searching his person I found the three dollars on him which I had marked and given to White. I also took the bundle from White which had been delivered to him by the prisoner. The prisoner on being called on for his defence pleads guilty. Sentence -Three years extension of sentence at the expiration of his present original sentence
