Details: John Tilley, stood indicted for striking George Botham with a spade or shovel, with intent to kill and murder him, at Newcastle on August 24th. Another count laid it with intent to do some bodily harm. It appeared from the evidence for the prosecution that the prisoner and prosecutor both belonged to the ironed gang at Newcastle. On the day laid in the indictment, Botham and others were employed filling a cart with stone, when Botham received a blow on the back of his head, which made him insensible, and, according to the evidence of Dr. Brooks; if it had not been in a slanting direction must have been fatal. Two other men belonging to the gang (Dredge and Byrnes) positively swore that they saw Tilley strike Botham with a spade, and Byrnes said, that Tilley stated, he would give himself up. It appeared, that Botham had previously applied for the situation of scourger, and had otherwise given annoyance to the gang by giving an account of some misconduct which had occurred. For the defense several witnesses were called; Sergeant Sherry of the 4th Regiment, deposed that he was on duty on the day which the accident occurred and he heard Dredge and Byrnes and several others of the gang, say, they did not see how he got the hurt; they only saw him fall, and that Botham himself said, his head got light and he fell against a stone, and upon his (the Sergeants) asking him, if any one had struck him, he said, no. Samuel Merritt, Overseer of Public Works at New- castle, deposed that he was present when Lieut. Gibson was making enquiry respecting Botham when Dredge handed him a piece of blue stone with some blood and hair on it; at the suggestion of Mr. Gibson he examined all the spades and shovels that were in or near the place where the men were at work. On his cross examination this witness admitted that notwithstanding his high sounding title, and that he had upwards of one hundred men under him, he was a prisoner without any remission of sentence and had seen as much trouble as most men. Storey, one of the gang positively swore that there were no spades or shovels on the ground and that in consequence of Mr. Nicholson being about to take charge, the tools were all being mustered. In summing up Justice Dowling drew the attention of the Jury to the fact, that the witnesses had in the first instance denied, that they had any knowledge of the circumstances, and that it was not, until there was some talk of a reward, that they preferred the evidence they had that day given. The Jury retired a short time and returned a verdict of, Not Guilty.
