Benjamin James prisoner for life and Elizabeth Garvin, free,      

charged with stealing two turkies the property of Joseph Aaron, who           had left them in a case in the front part of his house (enclosed). The   male prisoner was seen with his head under the frame of the front door     of the house, close to when the turkies had been left, about 7 o clock   the same night, and the woman was standing some distance from the     spot. The turkies were not removed, but as the intention of the prisoner, James, were manifestly to commit some depredation he was   therefore sentenced to work in iron- for 3 months, and Elizabeth Garvín, as a reputed rogue and vagabond, and an old offender to the   Factory, as the House of Correction, for 3 months.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 10-George Seymour, assigned to his wife. The Rev Mr Meares complained, that the prisoner had acted towards him in a very unbecoming manner, that he had made a very dis respcctful answer to him in the street the other day; and that he had       been impertinent. The prisoner expressed contrition, and thecom  

plainant was satisfied It was retailed to his memory, that when he   first came to Windsor, He was persecuted by a harsh master, who com   pelled him not only to pay 3s 6d per »eck to the Government, but other additional sums for the use of the said master, that this Bench   had represented such hardshlp to the late Governor Sir Thomas Brisbane, who ordered the prisoner, in consequence thereof, to be assigned to his wife, and moreover that the chief constable became   his surety to the Government on that occasion. That this Bench had   subsequently recommended to His Excellency Sir Thomas Brisbane,   a further indulgence, which was acceded to also, viz of being assigned to his wife, without paying 3s6d per week. lnsolence to the Officers   of Government was injudicious, however free the person offering the insult might feel himself, such conduct in in a prisoner was punishable in a very summary way—but in him an unbecoming deportment was ungrateful in the extreme. The prisoner admonished and dischargcd  

Friday, AUGUST 11-Thomas Butler, confined by order of his     master, Michael Nowland, of Wilberforce. The complaint against the   man was stealing a horse, saddle, and bridle, The man had been or-   dered to go to Windsor from Wilberforce about four miles, and he construed the words make haste Tom! to mean, take the horse Tom,   and you'll the sooner return, as he had done times and oft before. The   man was in custody one night, and his master, with his accustomed peace and good will towards all men did not appear against him. Dis

charged, and ordered to walk home.

Arthur denied the accusation of theft, and Ann M'Cann was   then called and sworn.

men and holds land, that the prisoner worked for her husband, a short time ago, that he had but one shirt, and that was very old and dirty, or you may guess gentlemen , that in a moment of pity, she was   induced to go to her husband's box, and give to the said Arthur a shirt a new dungaree shirt, true blue ! that he had not returned the same but had absconded from home, and took it upon his person,   leaving the old one in its place, look here, gentlemen, I'll shew you!   and was about to expose to the Court the remains of better days, a     shoemaker's old shirt-direful picture ' O, never mind, never mind '   and the good wonnu w is excused the painful task Ann, now «onie »hit relenting the severity of her tongue exphineda little further, why, your worships, its not the value of the shirt, but \ou must know that mv buslnnd, although a very quiet m tu when sober, when be gets groaP>) he is apt to call mules, and be a little jealous, although lu Ins no re i in, gentlemen , he may say, some diy or other, tint I give my huslund s shut to my faiiuv min, mil people who dont kn JW an) better such as strangers in Sydney niirket, may think it true no«, is \rthur is no t iney min ni mine, alii want of linn is, to confess before \ou tint I did give lum the shirt O no, replied Al thur, you did not give it to me, )ou sold it to me, and 1 told you to place it to my account, lowcdyou ¿2 12» and tint made ii 17s Arthur bei/ed the hippy moment, and ulled upon his mistress for a character, bli« gave lum a good character, only it was not agreeable for her husband to say so and so The ft lony wis reduced to the ovtrtactof i trustee, and finally to i book debt Arthur wis icry willing to work hut this debt, it wis agreed upon, and Ann took Arthur home to John who wis inxiously aw uting the result of this momentous trial For the credit of Arthur, we are authorised to state, tint the old shirt was not shewn to any body in Windsor, al

John Ryan, government servant to David Horton, charged that he   had entered his master's barn with intent to steal wheat. An entry was made and a ladder was placed against a rafter, so that access might   be had into the wheat loft through the usual trap door, howbeit, the     ladder fell, and down came John Ryan. As proverbs are sometimes   applicable, let us say, he that is born to be, &c. Ryan was very much   injured, and carried to the hospital. Ryan is a bad character; his   master said he did not know much against him [The fact is, the man is an excellent ploughman)- The prisoner pleaded he heard a noise,     he arose and went to the barn, when he was knocked down , he did not tell this story when first apprehended, it was evidently made up when
