Details: John Bradley, a constable, and James Wright, Susan Grey and Sarah Freeman in government service all charged with street robbery...John Cadman, Master of the government cutter Mars...last night a little before nine oclock I left Mr. Beatties house on the hill and went to that adjoining. I had been drinking. I followed a woman to the house. I think it was Susan Grey. I had not any previous acquaintance with her. At the house there was another woman (Sarah Freeman). I believe I had some refreshment with them. Shortly after one of them called me outside the house and on my going out a blanket was thrown over my head and I was shift of everything I had on. My watch was also taken from me and about two dollars. I do not know the persons of the men who robbed m. there were at least two of them. I fell in the struggle and I believe lay on the ground a considerable time. The Chief Constable states...last night near midnight, I was going my rounds and found the preceding witness in the street entirely stript of his clothes. He told me he had been robbed and pointed out the house he had come from when he was attacked. The house was nearly opposite where I had found him. I entered the house, I found Susan Grey there, she was intoxicated; Cadman was also intoxicated but was able to tell me in very distinct terms of the robbery. I afterwards found John Bradley in the street after I had left him in the watch house lying on the bed. It was his duty as constable to have been at the watch house. Near the house I found a jacket and that belonging to Cadman. From the whole of Bradleys conduct last night I had a strong suspicion that he was concerned in the outrage. I told him so this morning at the watch house. He and Hogan ( a constable) left the watch house for the purpose of searching for the watch which was not yet forthcoming. They went towards the house where Cadman had been the night before in a short time they returned bringing with them Cadmans watch. James Hogan a constable states - I went with the consent of the chief constable to seek for Cadmans watch. Bradley accompanied me. We went towards the house on the Hill inhabited by Sarah Freeman and Susan Grey on approaching the house I got into a sort of small gully and proceeding along it I turned up the sand with my foot and at last I found the watch which was given to the chief constable. John Mentzlaer stated - I lodge in the skilling of a cottage belonging to Mrs. Pennington an inhabited by Sarah Freeman and Susan Grey and I believe also James Wright lodges in the house. Bradley also was often there. Last night I saw Cadman come to the house. He stayed there a short time, Susan Gray came out of the house and he followed her. I was peeping through the door and could plainly see what was going on, as soon as Cadman came out two men laid hold of hi and Susan Grey went away; the two men who laid hold of him are Wright and Bradley. I know them well. I have known them at Newcastle for upwards of four years. Bradley longer; Wright threw a blanket over Cadmans head and Bradley robbed him; I can swear that Bradley and Wright are the persons who robbed Cadman last night. I did not dare to interfere at the time of the robbery. Wright is a powerful man and between him and Bradley my life would have been in danger, but I considered it my duty to relate what I have here stated to the Chief Constable. Prisoners remanded to be tried at Quarter Sessions. No evidence appearing against Sarah Freeman she is ordered to be discharged. John Bradley dismissed from his situation of constable. - later sent to Port Macquarie for 2 years.

Details: William Taylor, in government service, charged with taking away fire wood belonging to Francis Beattie from the beach without his permission. Francis Beattie states - I have a quantity of timber on the beach and have good reason to believe that it is frequently plundered. I was looking out at my window which commands a view of the timber yesterday afternoon and saw the prisoner take away a piece of edging which he conveyed to an uninhabited cottage. I sent for a constable and searched the cottage. In it two other pieces of edging were found which I have no doubt are also my property. William Turvey, constable, corroborates the evidence. The prisoner in his defence states that the edging in his possession was given him by a fellow prisoner for fire wood. Knows nothing of the two other pieces. William Taylor sentenced to hard labour in the road gang for three months

Details: Ralph Joblin in government service charged with theft in the dwelling house of Francis Beattie. Mr. Beattie states - the prisoner is a miner and when his task is finished at the mines he is permitted to work at my house for his own benefit. On Friday night, my memorandum book was in my great coat pocket which I left on going to bed in my back sitting room to which the prisoner had access - in the memorandum book were various letters and papers also three bank notes one for twenty dollars, one for ten and one for five - the following morning recollecting where I had so carelessly left my book I examined the pocket of my great coat; the book was there but the three notes had been taken out of it and were gone. I apprized the chief constable of the theft but could not fix suspicion on any one in particular; yesterday Michael Toomy who lives in the adjoining cottage to mine told me that he had seen my book on Saturday morning in Joblins hands and that he could tell me all about the robbery but hoped I would not say anything about it before tomorrow when he would make a full disclosure it being his duty to do so; my wife having been so good to him I showed Toomy my memorandum book and asked him if that was the book he had seen Jobbins hands. He took the book from me and examined it and on returning it he said he could swear on the holy Evangelists that that was the book he saw in Joblins possession on Saturday morning and that Joblin had given him two dollars not to say anything of what he had seen. Toom was afterwards brought to my house by the chief constable and confronted with Joblin when he (Toomy) said he would give up his part if he Joblin would give up his part of the robbery; Toomy also stated that Joblin had promised to give him another dollar for secrecy but had not done so. Toomy did not appear intoxicated when he made these statements. Chief Constable George Muir, Peter Holmes, Christopher Gavinlock were witnesses in court. Ralph Joblin and Christopher Gavinlock remanded until the following day. Michael Toomey per ship Hooghley and Peter Holmes per ship Minstrel both in government service charged with wilful and corrupt perjury in giving evidence. Michael Toomey sentenced to receive 100 lashes; Peter Holmes sentenced to 50 lashes for wilful and corrupt perjury. The sentence on Toomy to be suspended until the pleasure of His Excellency the Governor is made known thereon. Christopher Gavinlock in government service, implicated in the robbery at Francis Beattie and Ralph Joblin, same offence were brought before the court and ordered to be discharged, evidence against them not being considered sufficient to warrant a conviction

Details: Christiana Smith otherwise Young, assigned to William Smith, charged with disorderly conduct. Elizabeth Priest states - Yesterday about midday hearing a great disturbance at the back of my premises, I went out to enquire the cause of it, and heard the prisoner making very free with my name, calling me whore and various other gross and disgraceful epithets and threatening that if I would go out to her she would rip my bloody guts up. After she was taken into custody by the chief constable she continued her violent abuse throwing stones at my house and accusing me of an improper intercourse with her husband. Chief Constable George Muir states - I was applied to yesterday by Mrs. Priest who complained of having been grossly abused by Christiana Young in consequence of which I went to Mr. Beattie s Wood yard, adjoining Mrs. Priests house where she was. She was in a most violent passion and uttering torrents of abuse. I remonstrated with her on the impropriety of her conduct which she stated arose from her having detected Mrs. Priest in an improper intercourse with her husband. I soon after received orders to confine Christy Young in the watch house which with considerable difficulty and resistance on the part of the prisoner I accomplished. She made use of highly improper language intended for the hearing and levelled at the character of Mrs. Priest. William Smith questioned states - On Tuesday night I was waiting the return of my boat from up the river. About ten o clock I went to the wharf to see if she had arrived. I returned home by the main street without going near Priests house and came in at the back of my premises at which moment I saw a woman leave my house. I followed her to the beach and found her to be my wife; who immediately accused me with illicit intercourse with Mrs. Priest. Christiana Smith otherwise Young states in her defence On Tuesday night about ten o clock after I had retired to rest my husband left the house. I suspected he went out for an improper purpose - I got up and followed him at a distance. I saw him get over a fence and go into the privy at the back of Priests house. I went to the front door of Priest house and looked through the keyhole. I saw Mrs. Priest give her infant to her daughter Mary and then go out at the back door into the privy where my husband was and I there saw my husband kiss her. This has so excited my feelings as to cause me to be so violent as I was yesterday. The Chief constable ordered to examine Priests premises to ascertain whether any person standing at the front door of the house can see what is doing in the privy, The Chief constable on his return states - I have examined Priests premises and looked through the key hole of the front door with the back door open - at which time the privy could not be seen. Indeed with both doors open it cannot be seen, it being full nine feet beyond the line of the doors. Christiana Smith Young sentenced to three months to the Factory at Parramatta.
