PENRITH PETTY SESSIONS, Sept. 17 -
JOSEPH SALKELD, of Culgaith, was fined 2s 6d for an assault upon ELIZABETH
JACKSON, of the same place.
MARY ANN TURNBULL, of Penrith Town Head, was committed to the House of
Correction for seven days, for breaking into the orchard of Mr. LOT TRIMBLE,
and stealing a quantity of apples therefrom.
THOMAS LANCASTER, ISAAC SEWELL, JOSEPH GOLDING, and ROBERT DAVIDSON, all of
Culgaith, were charged with maliciously cutting the mane and tail of a mare
belonging to Mr. HENRY SAYER, of Longmartin. It appeared from the evidence
that Mr. SAYER had been paying his addresses to a young lady in the
neighbourhood, when the defendants perpetrated the offence "for a lark." It
proved rather an expensive one, as they were fined in the penalty of 5
pounds and costs. The amount was paid.
