ASSAULT ON A SIGNALMAN. At Chesterfield, W. Hopkinson, landlord of the Horns Inn, Chesterfield, and Thomas Bennett. a waiter in his service, have been charged with assaulting James Seagrave, a signalman, on duty. It appears that Seagrave owed the landlord money, seme of which he admitted having stolen from his till. The prisoners went to his signal-box and demanded the money, and attacked Seagrave in a most brutal man- ner. They held him on the ground and kicked him whilst he should have signalled the approach of the mail train, but was unable to do so. One goods train passed without a signal, and the approach of a second goods train following in the wake of the first was signalled on his bell, when by a desperate effort he broke away from his assailants and put on the signal to keep back the second train. The prisoners then brutally attempted to throw him out of the window of his box, but were prevented by the smallness of the aperture, and left him covered with blood, which flowed mostly from his mouth, nose, and ears. Both defendants were fully committed to take their trial at the next assizes, and were released on heavy bail.
