THE CHARGE OF PERJURY AGAINST I MRS. ALLEN. Harriet Allen, aged 33, of 20, Cumberland-street, Pimlico, milliner, was charged at the Marylebone Police-court, on remand with committing willui per. jury in this court on the 30th of May last.—Mr. George Lewis, jun., appeared for the proseoution, and Mr. Wilding defended the prisoner.—It will be remem. bered that the prisoner gave a gentleman named Moaelev into custody for indecently assaulting her in a carriage on the North Western Railway. The charge was dismissed, and the present charge of perjury was then preferred by Mr. Moseley.—The evidence went to show that the prisoner had lived at various places and under different names, but she was generally known as Mrs. Villiers. She had cohabited off and on for two years with a person named Dyer, who stated he had run through his property, and now lived on the profits he made at races. During the time she had known him she had brought from 20 to ) 30 charges against him at the different police offices, which had invariably been dismissed. She was always following him about and bringing these charges, chiefly because he would not continue to live with her. At the time she made the charge against Mr. Moseley she had a bouquet of flowers in her hand, and several persons who saw her at the time deposed that the flowers were not in the least rumpled, nor was her dress disarranged. She made no complaint to the check taker at the Camden station, nor to the guard at any of the stations where the train stopped. Mr. Moseley, when accused, seemed to be greatly astonished and indignant at the charge made against him, and was in an excited state. Further evidence proved that the prisoner was well known to the police as a companion of prostitutes, and was in the habit of frequenting the Victoria railway station for the purpose of talking to gentlemen, and she had been seen going away with different men from the station.—The prisoner, who reserved her defence, was committed for trial, and bail was refused.
