BELFAST POLICE COURTS.

CUSTODY.

(Before Messrs. Garrett Nagle, R.M.; J.C.C. Payne, J.H. Gault, and William Davison).

"A REGULAR ROWDY."

A young man named Peter M'Ginty was charged by Constable David Henderson with maliciously breaking a plate-glass window in the premises of Henry Lavery, publican, 22 Millfield, and with being drunk and disorderly on Friday evening. Mr. D. F. Spiller prosecuted in this and the other police cases. It appeared that the prisoner entered Mr. Lavery's premises under the influence of drink, and when his order was refused he went outside and threw a brick through the window. Prisoner, it was stated, never worked any. The Resident Magistrate characterised him as a regular rowdy, and sentenced him to three calendar mouth's imprisonment with hard labour.

PAWNBROKER COMPLIMENTS.

Constable Charles Jones charged Patrick M'Laughlin and James Smyth with the larceny of a gold watch, the property of Alex. Smyth, 41 Massereene Street, father of the latter. The prisoners attempted to pawn the timepiece with John Stewart, manager for Mr, Patrick M'Aleese, Albert Street, but in consequence of their unsatisfactory answers he communicated with the police. After further evidence, the prisoner Smyth was sent to jail for three months with hard labour, and M'Laughlin was allowed out under the Probation of Offenders Act. Mr. Stewart was highly complimented by the magistrates on his conduct in the matter.

WHITEHOUSE MAN IN THE DOCK.

John Wilson, 7 Dandy Row, Whitehouse, was charged by Detective-Constable Andrew Dougald with having, on the 10th inst., converted to his own use the sum of 13s 8d, which had been entrusted to him by Owen Smyth, publican, Greencastle, to pay to Messrs. R. & D. M'Allister, wine and spirit merchants, Bank Lane. The evidence of Mr. Smyth was to the effect that the prisoner had been in his employment as a labourer. On the day in question he gave Wilson 13s 8d to go to Messrs. M'Allister's for half a barrel of porter, but the prisoner did not return. Wilson stated that he misappropriated the money while under the influence of drink. The charge having been changed to one of larceny the prisoner pleaded guilty, and was remanded on bail to give him an opportunity of repaying the money.
