I wanted some eggs for my breakfast, and was informed by my dairymaid (Martha Phillips) that the hens and turkeys were watched and the egg stolen, that she had seen a man of the name of William Thomas in my field adjoining Betsv James's garden on Thursday and Friday last. He was tres- passing, because he had no business on my premises, and destroyed the field hedge adjoining Betsy James's garden. I therefore put my keeper to watch. On Sun- day last be saw Isaac James come into the field, go to a turkey's nest on the hayguard hedge, and take two eggf, the value of which is threepence, which my keeper took possession of. Defendant was fined 20s and 7s Id costs. Paid.—J. M. Child, Esq, charged Benjamin Morgan with trespassing in search of game.
