Frederick Marriott, Birkenhead, was summoned for cruelty to a horse.—Inspector Jabez Dowty, R.S.P.C.A., said that on September 16th he saw defendant and his horse, which was attached to a spring cart, in Brook-street. He followed it to the Smithfield, and there examined the horse, which was lame and nothing but a bag of skin and bone. It bore several wounds, and was very weak, and was sold in the Smithfield for 15s. 9d.-Mr. C. Holden, Birkenhead, who appeared for the defence, said defendant, through bad trade, wanted to sell the animal with the trap and harness, and brought it for that purpose to Chester. The wounds had been caused by the animal slipping down on Sept. 1st. Since that accident it had been kept in the stable until it was brought to Chester.— The magistrates thought a penalty of 10s. and costs would meet the case.
