THE POLIOE PERJURY CASE. Mr. John Ivory, of 53, College-place, Camden-town, pianoforte manufacturer, by whose instrumentality two boys, named severally Pierce and Dye, accused by the police of attempting a burglary, were proved innocent and were acquitted, and the two constables who charged them prosecuted for perjury, one of them to conviction, r' is about to present a memorial to the House of Commons and to the Court of Common Council on the subject. Mr. Ivory, it seems, is a man of very limited means, and his efforts to elicit the truth and bring the true offenders to justice have made him liable for costs to the amount of zEI39 3s. lOd. He states that, in discharging the public duty he was called upon to undertake, he had to fight against the public purse in obtaining a conviction, for the constables were defended by the Commissioners of Police. He now makes an ap- peal to the public to assist him in discharging the liability. He has already received a few subscriptions to this end. In his memorial he recites all the facts of the case, and submits that he has a claim by reason of the service he has been the means of rendering to the public by protecting the interests of two innocent per- sons, and by exposing and securing the punishment ot practices by which the liberties of the people are likely to be most seriously endangered, and by which the police force itself is likely to be brought into suspicion and odium. He moreover states To prevent a failure of justice, a count for conspiracy was added to the charge for perjury against the policemen Hayes and Barry. Upon the conviction of Hayes your memorialist was willing to abandon this indictment; but the counsel for the defence elected to have the charge for conspiracy tried, and the Recorder attached so much importance to it that he suggested its removal to the Court of Queen's Bench. Your memorialist does not feel himself justified in undertaking the responsibility of this further trial, unless he shall receive sufficient pecuniary aid to enable him to do so without personal risk." <8>i f
