MURDEROUS ASSAULT UPON A CONSTABLE. At Southwsirk 1 olice Court, London, on Weclncs- lay, Daniel Batt, 22, and Eug( •no McCarthy, 30, were ,i -tl--ed with committing a brutal and savage assault' upon Police Constable 134 L on the morning of the 1th April, inllicliiig inj uries of so serious a character that he had to be conveyed to St. Titoiiias's Iloipitzil. Detective Inspector Chamberlain, L Division, prose- cuted on behalf of the police, and Mr. Edwin Appeared for the p--isoners.-Tlie constable, who ap- peared very weak from the injuries indicted on his heud, said that between twelve and one on the morn- ing of the 4th April he was on duty in Stamford Stieet, when his attention was called to a disorderly mob surrounding two men fighting. There were 3creams and loud cries of Murder lie endea- voured to disperse the mob, when McCarthy knocked him down and Batt kicked him on the head. He lost his senses, and on re- covering he found himself in St. Thomas's Hospital, where he had remained ever since.—Thomas Packer, j residing in. Grifiin street, Lambeth, said he was going home on the morning in question when he heard cries of Murder I" and, forcing his way through the crowd, he saw the last witness on the ground insensible and bleeding from the ears and mouth. Witness lifted him up and, with assistance, convey ed him to St. Thomas's Hospital. He believed the prisoners were kicking the constable, and as soon as he came up they ran away, and the mob dispersed. In answer to Mr. Edwin, witness said he could not swear to the prisoners.—Thomas Bewfoot, an engineer, said he saw the constable hustled down by some persons in the mob, but he could not see who did it, as it was so dark.—It was shown that the constable's injuries-chiefly upon the head-were very serious.—Mr. Edwin, for the defence, said, after some further evidence had been given, that he was instructed to say that the prisoners were not near the spot at the time, and he called witnesses to prove that fact.—Mr. Slade committed them for trial, accepting bail for McCarthy.
