John Byrne per John Barry and Michael Toomy per Hooghley, both in government service charged with theft. John Cooper states - On Tuesday last on my return from my work, I found that my house had been forcibly entered and that one shirt, one pair of trowsers, and a blanket belonging to myself and a short and pair of trowsers belonging to James Kellet had been carried off. Some stolen articles belonging to James Wilkins who also lived in the house were missing. The staple of the front door had been forced and the back door had been opened apparently on the inside. I immediately reported the circumstances to Constable Peter Riley. About an hour after William Webster who is the government servant of the Rev. Middleton, came to me saying that he understood I had been robbed and that a black native called Black Boy could show me where the things were. I went to the native who took me to the hollow behind the church where I found the blanket and one of the shirts which had been stolen. I asked if he knew who put them there. He said twas Duffy and a man who lived at my house. ON my questioning Duffy he told me he had not robbed me himself but he knew who had. Timothy Duffy states - I saw Byrne and Toomy together on Tuesday morning between the hours of 8 and 9 near where I live and at a little distance from Coopers. They were coming in the direction from the back of his house. Toomy had a bundle in his hand. Toomy and Byrne came to the door of my hut. Byrne lives in the hut with me, he went in and staid from ten to twenty minutes. Toomy wanted to go in also but I would not suffer him as I thought he had come dishonestly by the bundle which he carried upon which Toomy went away with it over the Hill towards the Church. I did not mention any of these circumstances to the constables until I was taken to the watch house on suspicion of being concerned in the robbery. The prisoner deny the charge and call in their defence William PItt who being sworn states - I was at the house adjoining where Duffy lives on Tuesday morning a little after 8 o clock. I saw a man with a bundle under his arm coming from the back of Coopers house. I had no suspicion of anything wrong. I thought he might be taking linen from the Parsonage to the washerwoman, as the path from there into the town passes at the back of Coopers. I do not know the man who carried the bundle. He was much taller than either of the prisoners who I know well. John Corrigan, states - I went to my work on Tuesday morning at six o clock at the mines. Byrne works there also. He works below. There are two spells. I am not certain whether he remained at the mines or went away during his spell hour. The Bench taking into their consideration the notoriously bad character of the witness Duffy acquit the prisoners
