THE LATE ROBBERY NEAR WHITEHAVEN -
On Monday, EDWARD SAVAGE and ALEXANDER WILKINSON, (the two miners who, we
stated last week, were apprehended on a charge of highway robbery, near
Bransty Toll-bar), were brought up for final examination, when it appeared
from the evidence that the affair was altogether a drunken frolic. The
prisoners were therefore both acquitted of the felony, but fined 45s. 6d.
each including costs, for the assault.
