EDDISBURY PETTY SESSIONS. I MONDAY.—Before Messrs. J. Tomkinson, M.P., H. C. Burder, Col. Lascelles, and Dr. Smith. BROTHER ASSAULTS HIS SISTER.-Joseph Birchwood, junior. Alton-street, Crewe, was summoned for assaulting his married sister, Elizabeth Briscoe, residing at Wistaston-road, Crewe, on the 24th of November, at Ashton. It appeared irom the evidence that on the after- noon of the day in question the parties bad attended a funeral of a relative at Overton, after which they journeyed to their father's house at Ashton, refreshing themselves liberally on the way with alcoholic beverages. In the house a quarrel, the cause of which did not transpire, arose between them, and defendant struck his sister five or six violent blows with his fist on her face, causing her nose and mouth to bleed profusely. Defendant alleged that the affair was the result of an old-standing grievance between him and his sister. He alleged that his sister struck him first, and he simply retaliated, whereupon she attempted to strike him with a chair.- Phe llench regarded the case as a very disgraceful one. They could not exonerate the complainant from blame, but they fined defen- dant 10s. including costs. FIGHTING. — Jonathan White, labourer, Kelsall, and James Lyons, farm servant at Willington, were ordered to pay the costs (4s. 6.1.) on a summons for fighting in Yell- lane, Eddisbury, shortly after ten o'clock on the night of the 1st December.—P.C. Wilson proved the case. IGNORANCE AN EXCUSE.Frank Williams, joiner, Cuddington, was summoned for riding a bicycle on the footpath on Cuddington-road. Defendant did not appear, but sent a letter expressing his regret for the offence, and stating he did not know at the time he was violating the law. Under the circumstances the case was dismissed. A RECALCITRANT LABOURER.—Thomas Gaffey, an elderly labourer, of Northwich, sum- moned Frederick Fowles, farm labourer, at Weaverham, for assault on the 25th December. The parties, it appeared, worked at the same farm. Gaffey alleged that defendant ordered him to do some work that he was unable to do, and when he protested that he could not do the task Fowles knocked him about like a foot- ball."—The evidence for the defence shewed that Fowles on the day in question had sole charge of the farm. Gaffey came to his work under the influence of drink, and firmly refused to do any work at all, and defendant simply ejected him from the premises.—The case was dismissed.
