Details: Richard Keys (Kays), in government service, charged with gambling and resisting the chief constable in the execution of his duty. Mr. George Muir, chief constable states - Last night I was passing a house in Wellington Street. I heard the rattling of halfpence. I opened the door and found the prisoner and another standing with a blanket on the floor before them. On my demanding to see what they held in their hands, Keys refused and on my laying hold of him to compel him, he struggled to prevent me as well as kicked my shins. I succeeded in the end in getting some pence from him as also from his companion amounting to 13d. Keys is a wardsman at the prisoners barracks and has no business out at the hour I found him. The prisoner denies having been gambling; admits having resisted and refusing to have his money taken from him. Richard Keys sentenced to 25 lashes. (Thirteen pence deposited in the office).

James Gallaghar, overseer of the road party states - The prisoners were both under my orders in the gang working on the road between Newcastle and Wallis Plains. I recollect their absconding from the gang a few months since, since which I have neither seen nor heard of either of them until their return from Sydney as prisoners a few days ago. I think from my observation of them previous to their absconding that it was Farrell who enticed Sladen away. Farrell states in his defence - I ran away because the overseer abused me. Sladen states in his defence - I was a good while in the gang and worked well, but having been abused and threatened by the overseer, I ran away. Garrett Farrell sentenced to 75 lashes and Bernard Sladen sentenced to 50 lashes
