CITY POLICE COURT. — i YESTERDAY (TUESDAY) .-Bafore the Mayor, r and Messrs. William Brown and R. L. Barker. THE GREEN-EYED MONSTER. Thomas Dutton and William Dutton are brothers in different circumstances in life, and the fact that William is supposed to be the possessor of iE5,000, while the more unfortunate Thomas is obliged to undertake manual labour for the sum of 18o. a week, was the indirect cause of their appearance before the city magistrates. It appears that on Monday Thomas Dutton, who is a labourer, went to No. 44, St. Anne-street, where his brother is in business as a baker, and without any apparent reason for so doing, commenced to playfully tap the shop windows with a poker, the result being that the windows gave way, and damage was incurred to the extent of 30s. Not content with this, he also put his foot through the windows of the shop door. When asked the reason for this conduct, prisoner expressed sorrow, and added that he did not know what came over him.—Prosecutor said he did not think prisoner was sober. He worked one week and played the next, and if he bad money he spent it in drink.—The Chief Constable remarked that prisoner seemed aggrieved that he had to work for 18s. a week, while his brother had £ 5,000.—Prosecutor stated that prisoner thought he bad enough money to keep them all in idleness.—Fined Is., and ordered to pay for the damage, and costs, or 1n default 14 days' hard labour. 'A BIRD OF PASSAGE.'—Ann Jones was summoned at the instance of P.C. Williams for being drunk and disorderly in Foregate-street at a quarter to one that morning.—The officer stated that prisoner was swearing at everyone ho passed. He removed her, but she persisted in committing the offence complained of. When asked where she came from, prisoner replied that she had no settled residence—(laughter)— and that she was going to Wilmslow.—Mr. enwick: That is not far from Knutsford.— The Mayor: Yes, it is not far from where she go. (Laughter.) — The magistrates, however, took a lenient view of the case, and in ordering her dismissal also gave her warning to leave the city.
