John Darcy and James Folley, prisoners of the
Crown, were put to the bar for stealing a watch from
the house of T.D. Rowe last Sunday.
Thomas Owen stated that he was come merely to
identify the watch, as he was not present when the
transaction of the robbery took place. This witness
therefore merely swore to the watch produced in
Court as being the property of Mr Rowe
Mr Roger Murphy deposed, that last Sunday
about one o'clock, he happened to pass the house of
Mr Rowe, when he heard a noise of alarm, which
induced him to enter, when he found that it was occa-
sioned by Mr Rowe's being extremely ill and in
fainting fits. This information he also received from
the house keeper, who also informed him that during
the confusion, a man entered, whose dress and appearance
she described, and carried off Mr Rowe's
watch. On leaving the house and entering into
George-street, he saw a man coming forward at some
distance, answering to the description he had received.
Weston, a constable, being at hand he pointed out the
prisoner Darcy to him, at the same time, relating the
circumstances of the robbery, but the prisoner observ-
ing that he was taken notice of, turned back and
walked in the direction of Mr Rose's, upon which,
Weston followed him quickly, took him into custody,
and found the watch in his possession. Mr Murphy
stated that the activity of Weston was highly praise
worthy. As to the prisoner Foley, it did not appear
that he had any participation in the affair, as he
had merely been in the house of Mr Rowe to enquire
the results of an application which that Gentleman had
made to the Colonial Secretary to obtain him as a
servant. Foley was therefore discharged, and the
Court finding the prisoner Darcy guilty, sentenced
him 3 years to such penal settlement as His Ex-
cellency the Governor should think fit to appoint.

February 6 - H. Townsend and W. Baxter, whose
case we partly reported in our last, were this day
brought before the Bench to be examined on the
further charges which were to be adduced.
The 3d charge was for the former prisoner forging
an order, purporting to be drawn by Mr. John Terry
Hughes, for Mr Samuel Terry, on Mr. Barnett Levey,
for two pieces of shirting calico.
Mr Levey upon being sworn in stated, that on Friday
last, on which the order was dated, Townsend
came to his shop and presented the order now pro-
duced, on which he delivered to the prisoner 2 pieces
of cloth, and took receipt for the same. Next day
despondent saw Mr. Hughes and asked him how he liked
the shirting, to which the latter replied he had
received none, and that the order must be a forgery.
The piece of cloth now produced is one of those which
he delivered to the prisoner Townsend.
Mr. J. T. Hughes being sworn, declared that the
order altogether was a forgery.
The 4th charge, which was fir an order on Mr. R.
Cooper for some locks, signed as before, was dismissed
as Mr. Cooper, who delivered the articles,
could not identify the person of the prisoner.
On the 5th charge, Sarah Andrew deposed that she
lives at Mr. R. Cooper's, and that on the 27th of
February the prisoner Townsend come to Mr Cooper's
with an order purporting to be signed John Terry
Hughes for Samuel Terry, for four iron rim locks,
which were delivered. The order now produced in
Court is that which was presented.
Mr. J. T. Hughes deposed that the order is not
of his hand writing, but is altogether a forgery.
Henry Townsend after having been asked if he had
any questions to put to the witnesses, to which he
replied in the negative, was committed for trial for
four various frauds and forgeries, and John Baxter
was committed as an accessory.
