SECOND COURT.—(Before J. 'Espiuasse, Esq.)
STEALING AT EDENBRIDGE. — Henry Worcel pleaded guilty to having stolen 10s., the property of James Ellis, at Edenbridge, on the 7th August. The money was stolen from the prosecutor's cottage during his absence at his work in the fields. Mr. Barrow, who had been instructed for the prosecution, drew the attention of the Court to a note attached to the depositions by the committing magistrates, commending the conduct displayed by Superintendent Dance and Police-constable Solly, who traced the robbery to the prisoner. The prisoner was sentenced to four years' penal servitude, and the Court awarded Superintendent Dance and Police-constable Solly each £4 for the activity they had displayed.
