GOING TO CROYDON RACES. Andrew Johnson and Walter Jardine, described, as book makers have been charged on remand at the Croydon Petty Sessions with being suspected persons frequenting the Croydon Racecourse, sup- posed for the purpose of committing a felony, on April 20th. A constable, deposed to seeing the prisoners betting on the course during the races, and to hearing them having a dispute with a man who was demanding the payment of 15s. It was in consequence, the officer said, of Jardine handing the man a X5 note on the "bank of engraving" that lie took them into custody. At the Police-station a "flash" £ 10 note was found on Jardine, besides a considerable sum in good money. The last-men- tioned prisoner declared that someone gave him the notes on the bank of engraving," just before the constable came up, for a bet. Mr. Newton said he was instructed to say that Jardine was the son of a highly respectable merchant in Glasgow. He was manager of one of his mother's shops, and having had a dispute with her on March 2G, he came up to London, drew JE20 out of the bank, and very foolishly went to the Croydon Races. The result was that he was what: was commonly called "plucked." The Bench ordered each of the pri- soners to pay a fine of £3 and 13s. costs.
