Turner proved finding the prisoner, with another boy, stealing apples, gooseberries, currants, and strawberries, in the garden of Mr. Justice, on Sun- day motning last. They ran off as fast as they could, but he pur- sued and captured Morgan, while the other escaped. A consi- derable quantity of unr:pe fruit was found on the prisoner.—The youog rascal now said the policeman had eaten the strawberries. (Laughter.)—Committed to the House of Correction for three months' hard labour. This should prove a warning to other garden robbers. TAKING TOO MUCH CARE OF HIMHLF. Timothy Rearden was charged with being drunk and disor- derly, and assaulting several people in Commercial-street, last Saturday evening.—Mr. Superintendent English proved finding Tim in an upioarious state, kicking respectable persons, and running a great risk of receiving a sound thrashing for his im. pertinent and drunken conduct.—Tim Why, sure, thin, it was the middicine that did it.— The Mayor: What, the medicine! —Tim s Yes, sure, now, it was the middicine I took. I'm an arly riser, and I was sick on Saturday so I called on the doctor, and says he, Why, thin, Tim, you had better take a couple of glasses of whiskey and a couple of brandy, and then it's all light you'll be from the sickness!" (Laughter.)—Mayor: And rs that medicine did you harm, we will try what another kind of medicine will do for you, we fine you 10s., and 8s. costs, or one month's imprisonment. Catherine Kennedy, an old offender, was charged with drunken and disorderly conduct.— Fined 5s. and costs, or fourteen days imprisonment. Thomas Regan was charged wilh disorderly conduct in the street, and insulting a female, on Saturday night last—This pri- soner had not the excuse of being drunk at the time he exhibited his unmanly conduct. He quarrelled with a number of Irishmen, and then turned to and kicked and beat a female. Prisoner de- nted the charge emphatically.— Fined os., and 5s. 6d. costs, or fourteen days' imprisonment. IRISH FASSENGEtl CAPTAINS, BEWAHE! Robert Travers, master of the Two Friends, trading between Ireland and this port, was charged with having made default in not fixing up in some conspicuous part of his vessel an abstract of the Passenger Act Mr. Woollett, for the defendant, took objections to the form of the information, which the magistrates overruled, and the case proceeded.—Richard Trew was sworn. He said The defendant is master of the Two Friends, with which he arrived in this port on Friday last, from Kinsale, and had thirty adults and seven children, twenty horses, and four cows on board; the vessel being under 200 tons. Defendant is in the habit of blinking Irish passengers heie, having a license to do so, which he showed me. He is licensed to carry fifty-six passengers. I did not see any abstract of the Passenger Act on board. I asked him f..r the abstract, but he said he had not got one. There was not a cnpy of a license hung up nor any state- ment of the number of passengers he was licensed to carry.— This was the case; and Mr. Woollett then assured the Bench that his client had eired entirely through ignorance of the law. He was duly licensed, and it had been shown that he had not carried more than tbe number allowed. The learned gentleman further stated that he had advised his client to give up the pas- senger trade altogether; as there were so many rocks,quicksands, shoals, &c., in this act of parliament, that he or any other cap- tain must be a skilful navigator, who could find his way safely through it.—The Mayor The advice you have given yourctient is very good.—Mr. Hushes: You cannot stop the trade: these vessels, when licensed, will still bring passengers; and the only thing for the authorises to do,is to see that every pailicular of the act cf parliament is complied with.—The Mayor Robert Travers, this charge is very clearly proved against you, and you are fined £10., and 15s. costs; and if there is not enough 10 satisfy the distrass warrant on board your vessel, you will be committed to prison for two months. WANTON ASSAULT ON A POOR MAN. Thomas Frankham was charged with violently assaulting Wm. Hill.—Complainant stated thst the defendant came up against him, while driving his coal cut auout the town, and continually mocked him, and called him names. Complainant repeatedly pushed him away, when he came up and struck and cut him very severely. He bled much.-Defenda.nt: I did call out Chal" as he passed but he called me" Phillips's bull-dog" in return. —Dr. Stack proved that the complainant came to the surgery last Saturday, with an incised wound above his eye, which might have been cut by a sharp stone, or by the assailant's knuckle.— The complainant, whotabouishardtoearna wretched living, by selling coal from door to door. said the defendant and even some respectably-dressed men, called after him nicknames, and tried to prejudice his customers against buying his coal, by crying out short weigbt.Mr. Hughes said the case was very clearly proved.—Fined 20s., and 12s. costs, or a month's imprisonment. A NICE COUPLE Jane Davies, an interesting, but rather vixenish-looking young wile, with an infant, in its night-clothes, in her arms, was charged with assaulting her husband, John Thomas Davies, letter carrier. —VVile I am not guilty he beat me first.—The Mayor Can't you settle this matter with your wife, Davies? [t will he very discreditable to both of you, to expose your domestic differences in a public court.—Davies: Why no, gentlemen, I can't live with her it's no use to tiy.—Wife: And I can't live with him.

Then she left the babby, when i was only a fortnight old—why, the beasts of the field woulan o so bad a thing. (Laughter.)
