Details: Ralph Joblin in government service charged with theft in the dwelling house of Francis Beattie. Mr. Beattie states - the prisoner is a miner and when his task is finished at the mines he is permitted to work at my house for his own benefit. On Friday night, my memorandum book was in my great coat pocket which I left on going to bed in my back sitting room to which the prisoner had access - in the memorandum book were various letters and papers also three bank notes one for twenty dollars, one for ten and one for five - the following morning recollecting where I had so carelessly left my book I examined the pocket of my great coat; the book was there but the three notes had been taken out of it and were gone. I apprized the chief constable of the theft but could not fix suspicion on any one in particular; yesterday Michael Toomy who lives in the adjoining cottage to mine told me that he had seen my book on Saturday morning in Joblins hands and that he could tell me all about the robbery but hoped I would not say anything about it before tomorrow when he would make a full disclosure it being his duty to do so; my wife having been so good to him I showed Toomy my memorandum book and asked him if that was the book he had seen Jobbins hands. He took the book from me and examined it and on returning it he said he could swear on the holy Evangelists that that was the book he saw in Joblins possession on Saturday morning and that Joblin had given him two dollars not to say anything of what he had seen. Toomy was afterwards brought to my house by the chief constable and confronted with Joblin when he (Toomy) said he would give up his part if he Joblin would give up his part of the robbery; Toomy also stated that Joblin had promised to give him another dollar for secrecy but had not done so. Toomy did not appear intoxicated when he made these statements. Chief Constable George Muir, Peter Holmes, Christopher Gavinlock were witnesses in court. Ralph Joblin and Christopher Gavinlock remanded until the following day Michael Toomey per ship Hooghley and Peter Holmes per ship Minstrel both in government service charged with wilful and corrupt perjury in giving evidence. Michael Toomey sentenced to receive 100 lashes; Peter Holmes sentenced to 50 lashes for wilful and corrupt perjury. The sentence on Toomy to be suspended until the pleasure of His Excellency the Governor is made known thereon Christopher Gavinlock in government service, implicated in the robbery at Francis Beattie and Ralph Joblin, same offence were brought before the court and ordered to be discharged, evidence against them not being considered sufficient to warrant a conviction

Details: John Byrne per John Barry and Michael Toomy per Hooghley, both in government service charged with theft. John Cooper states - On Tuesday last on my return from my work, I found that my house had been forcibly entered and that one shirt, one pair of trowsers, and a blanket belonging to myself and a short and pair of trowsers belonging to James Kellet had been carried off. Some stolen articles belonging to James Wilkins who also lived in the house were missing. The staple of the front door had been forced and the back door had been opened apparently on the inside. I immediately reported the circumstances to Constable riley. About an hour after William Webster who is the government servant of the Rev. Middleton, came to me saying that he understood I had been robbed and that a black native called Black Boy could show me where the things were. I went to the native who took me to the hollow behind the church where I found the blanket and one of the shirts which had been stolen. I asked if he knew who put them there. He said twas Duffy and a man who lived at my house. ON my questioning Duffy he told me he had not robbed me himself but he knew who had. Timothy Duffy states - I saw Byrne and Toomy together on Tuesday morning between the hours of 8 and 9 near where I live and at a little distance from Coopers. They were coming in the direction from the back of his house. Toomy had a bundle in his hand. Toomy and Byrne came to the door of my hut. Byrne lives in the hut with me, he went in and staid from ten to twenty minutes. Toomy wanted to go in also but I would not suffer him as I thought he had come dishonestly by the bundle which he carried upon which Toomy went away with it over the Hill towards the Church. I did not mention any of these circumstances to the constables until I was taken to the watch house on suspicion of being concerned in the robbery. The prisoner deny the charge and call in their defence William PItt who being sworn states - I was at the house adjoining where Duffy lives on Tuesday morning a little after 8 o clock. I saw a man with a bundle under his arm coming from the back of Coopers house. I had no suspicion of anything wrong. I thought he might be taking linen from the Parsonage to the washerwoman, as the path from there into the town passes at the back of Coopers. I do not know the man who carried the bundle. He was much taller than either of the prisoners who I know well. John Corrigan, states - I went to my work on Tuesday morning at six o clock at the mines. Byrne works there also. He works below. There are two spells. I am not certain whether he remained at the mines or went away during his spell hour. The Bench taking into their consideration the notoriously bad character of the witness Duffy acquit the prisoners
