Skull Fracture from accidently upsetting of dray.

A NICE FAMILY - Michael Farrell was fined for being drunk. Thomas and Patrick Farrell (his brothers) were charged with assaulting Senior-constable Graham, and tearing his uniform, and one of the latter two (to wit) Patrick, with destroying the urinal in the lock-up. The wild appearance and manners of the prisoners betokened their babits, if the evidence against them had not proved the character of the men. The two vagabonds appeared to have acted as if mad, either from drink or a natural kind of lunacy. Thomas was fined 20s or  48 hours for threatening behaviour, and 5s fine and £2 9s 6d damages, or 14 days' imprisonment, for destroying the constable's uniform. Patrick was fined 20s or 48 hours for threatening behaviour, and for destroying the urinal was fined 5s and the cost of the property.

He afterwards returned with his mother and the prisoner in search of the coat, but it was gone. Hogan saw the prisoner about six o'clock p.m. last Sunday with the coat on, and, saying " That is my coat, tried to lay hold of the prisoner, who thereon bolted.
