AN UNPRINCIPLED SCOUNDREL. ♦ A man giving the name of Henry Morton was charged at Hastings on Wednesday with aiding and abetting May Morton in begging at St. Leonards. In a letter to the Mayor the prisoner expressed regret, saying he was of good family, and this was the first time he had been in prison.—The Chief Constable said he had received from the London police a report to the effect that the man's name was Eugene Mason, and he was formerly in the employment of a cycle manufacturer at Holborn. About six months ago he left this place and started a business of his own, and there he defrauded nearly every person with whom he bad transactions. While he was there he made the acquaintance of a young woman, and on the 7th of October went through a form of mar- riage with her at the Registry Office. He lived with her until November 6 of the same year, during which time he pawned all the articles of value the woman possessed, and left her with only a few things. He was charged at the Marlborough-street Police Court with stealing the articles, which were returned, and, the wife interceding, be was discharged. The reports from different places where he had lived shewed him to be a very bad fellow. The I prisoner lived for some time at Eastbourne, where he occupied apartments, and left without paying the rent. There he made the acquaint- ance of the female prisoner, who was a domestic servant named Alice Vidler, the daughter of respectable parents. They stated that she left home about a month ago, saying she was going to a situation at Brighton. A number of letters were found on the prisoner from different women addressed in terms of warmest affection. The male prisoner was sentenced to fourteen days' hard labour, and the woman, who was advised to go home to Eastbourne, to only a day's imprisonment.
