A miserable looking individual named Daniel Frazer alias Kelly, who had been previously convicted at Liver- pool, was brought up in custody charged with stealing a copper half gallon measure, two pairs of boots, three cravats, two bonnets, two blankets, a portion of bed hangings, and bed clothes belonging to Mary Ann Newell, of Vale-road. Prisoner had been working at the Pier alterations and lodging with the complainant, and while she was engaged in changing her residence, the fellow took the articles. She met him on the street, saw some of the things in his possession, charged him with the theft and "collared him." A severe struggle ensued, and though about 20 persons gathered round not one went to the woman's help. She, however, hung on to the fellow and succeeded in detaining him until Police Constables Elvey and Thomas arrived, when she gave him into custody. The Chairman said that the people who looked on during the struggle and neglected to help the woman ought to be thoroughly well ashamed of themselves, and if there were any of them in Court they could hear his opinion of their conduct. The prisoner was sent to goal for six months with hard labour. A DANGEROUS PRACTICE. Henry Watson was fined 10s. and 7s. Gd. costs for discharging a loaded gun in High-street. Iihuddlan. P.C.
