JOHN BLACK was charged by Supt. LITTLE with vagrancy. He was found wandering about the streets on Sunday evening, with a quantity of bread concealed on his person.
The Chairman: Where do you come from?
Prisoner: From Edinburgh.
The Chairman: Oh; you are a Scotchman, are you?
Supt. Little: He told me last night he came from Belfast.
The Chairman: Where are you going?
Prisoner: I would like to go to Carlisle.
Supt. Little: He said last night he had just walked from Carlisle. (Laughter)
Prisoner: No; I walked from Keswick.
The Chairman: Will you leave the town if we let you go?
The Chairman: Don't let us hear of you again then; or else we will send you to Carlisle quicker than you can walk.
