ASSAULT AND BATTERY AND ATTEMPT TO SHOOT. A Mr. Richard Hawkshaw was last week charged at the head police-office, Dublin, with having violently assaulted and threatened to shoot Mr. James Nolan. Both parties are respectable men of business, having ofilces within a few doors of each other in Fleet-street. It appeared from the statement of the complainant that he and the defendant had been in partnership for three years. In January last the defendant threatened to shoot him. On Wednesday he was informed that Mr. Hawkshaw had purchased a pair of pistols, and repeated his threats against him. He therefore- endea- voured to avoid him, but as he was returning to his own office he met Hawkshaw, who brandished a heavy stick in his face, and said that he had been drilled by a soldier at Harrowgate, and that he had pistols in his office, and if complainant would go there with him he would give him one of them and a fair chance. Mr. Nolan refused, and then the defendant called him a toward, spat in his face, and struck him on the side of the head with the stick; Mr. Nolan raised up Ms hand to protect himself from the prisoner, who was' beating him about the head with the stick, when several persons- interfered and separated them. He considered his life in danger, and had to shut up his office and suspend his business through fear of the defendant's violence. Mr. Hawkshaw Hiade a raiRbling statement to the effect that Mr. Nolan had robbed him. In answer to the magistrate (Mr. Wyse) he said he bought the pistols to practise shooting. The de- fendant was committed for trial at the City sessions.
