Details: Samuel Beckett and Duncan Kennedy both in government service charged with being out of quarters at unseasonable hours and on suspicion of attempting a robbery at the Farm Cottage occupied by Rev. Threlkeld....Mr. Threlkeld states. ....between one and two oclock yesterday morning the dogs at the farm gave an alarm, I got out of bed and went to the camp of the native blacks near the house. One of them told me some white men had been there and had struck him with a musket and told him to be gone. A man servant at the farm searched the adjacent grounds and saw some men concealed who made off on perceiving him. Joseph Davis snapt his pistol at one of them but it missed fire. Throsby the black fired but missed his object.. Joseph Davis states - About 1/2 past twelve yesterday morning I was abed and heard the dogs making a great noise. A native black called Throsby came and called m and said there were white men with muskets threatening to shoot him. I got my pistol and opened the window but did not then see any stranger; I went to the fire where the blacks were and then saw a man at distance running. I cannot speak to his person. I did not go to bed but remained with the blacks. The master retired to the house. About an hour after one of the blacks told me there was a stranger behind one of the huts. I went and asked who was there but did not get an answer but a man ran away. I shot my pistol at him, it miss fired. Thosby fired but without effect. We followed the man a short distance but lost sight of him. Kennedy, the man I shot at was only five or six yards from him. Two native blacks, Throsby and Purcell state that they saw at the farm yesterday morning four men, two of them had muskets, the person who had the muskets were named Leary or Lowe, bot free. Leary struck Throsby with the butt end of his musket. Beckett and Kennedy were with them. In this stage of the proceedings the Chief Constable stated that from certain private information he had received it was probably on further enquiry the intentions of the prisoners in going to the farm would be brought to light. Prisoners remanded to the following day

Details: Samuel Beckett and Duncan Kennedy on remand from previous day brought before the court....It appearing that the object of the prisoners in going to the Farm Cottage as stated in the proceedings previously was not for the purpose of plunder, but with a very reprehensible intention of communicating with the female servants of Rev. Threlkeld and the black native girls encamped in the vicinity of the Cottage, the more serious part of the charge is withdrawn and they are thereupon sentenced to be confined at night to the Prisoner Barracks

Details: Thomas Atkinson, in government service, charged with an assault on Mary Ann White, an infant aged 5 years with an intent to commit rape. The following depositions were read over in his presence. Elizabeth Hannell being duly sworn....On Saturday morning the 4th inst., I discovered that my little girl had been seriously injured and that she was in a very bad state from it. I asked her who had done it. She refused to tell me at first, but by threats and promises I induced her to point the person; she took me to a house in which were three men and pointed out Atkinson without hesitation. I sent for a constable and requested him to take charge of the three men which was done. As they past my door the constable desired me to bring out my child that she might point out which of the three has committed the offence. When she again pointed to Atkinson and on my asking her if another of the men had not done it she said no and persisted in pointing out Atkinson. My child told me he had whipped her before he made the attempt and she showed me the place where this affair occurred and said I was away at the time drawing my rations.. Mary Ann White being privately examined by George Brooks stated that she had been hurt by the prisoner... Henry Kenny overseer of the general hospital being duly sworn deposeth and saith - Mary Ann White was brought to me some time since during the absence of Dr Brooks by her mother. It was on the day on which the injury she had sustained was discovered. I examined her. There was a considerable degree of inflammation and a great discharged arising from violence on the private parts. I examined Atkinson he was not diseased. William Cooper being duly sworn deposeth - On Saturday week last I was in an adjoining skilling where Atkinson was and I saw the little girl Mary Ann White, crying. I told her to go home. I went to the door of the house where Atkinson was. I saw only him except Bentley who was lying asleep. I said whoever has been injuring the child deserves everything that is bad. The child had told me that a big man had been hurting her. It was on this account that I made the observation as Atkinson is a stout man and my impression was that he might be the man. The child might have heard me speaking to him. The previous depositions having been read Thomas Atkinson denies the charge, and calls Sarah Perkins, who being duly sworn deposth....Some time since my husband and me lived on Mr. Dillons farm. I took the child with me but was desired by the mother of it Elizabeth Hannell to wash her frequently or else she would get very bad. I washed her going up the river, I continued to wash her at least once a day for some time but having at last neglected to do so for a day or two it became very bad. I never saw a child in such a state before. It was regular discharge. The child was quite well when I returned her to her mother but I have reason to believe she has been frequently in the same state since. Samuel Beckett being sworn...about two years ago I was at Mr. Dillons farm when Sarah Perkins came to live there with this little girl. She used to be washed regularly in the private parts except I believe upon one occasion for two or three days when the child became very bad. I saw a very considerable discharge from her privates which were washed three times a day to my knowledge whilst the complaint was on her. The bench having considered the evidence against the prisoner as well as that produced in his defence are of opinion that he is not guilty of the offence and do order him to be discharged to his duty
