John Watt, Simon Pereira, and William Taylor were charged yesterday with breaking open the store of Messrs. Albergas and Mitchell, in connection with the larceny by Margaret Judah, and stealing 50 dozen bottles Ale, 25 dozen bottles Sherry Wine, 6 cases, 6 quart bottles, and 25 pints Claret, 12 packs Candles, 25 dozen bottles Rum, 12 loaves Sugar, 12 tins Meat, 24 tins Salmon, 12 Hams, 20 pieces Bacon, 20 dozen tins Condensed Milk, and one case Moselle. The prisoners were not defended. At the close of the case, the Jury retired for a quarter of an hour, and returned into Court with a verdict of guilty against Taylor: Watt and Pereira not guilty. As there are other indictments against Watt and Pereira, they were kept in custody.
Taylor was then sentenced to five years penal servitude.
His Honor the Attorney General observed that he would not proceed with the other cases as he in the meantime might be able to procure corroborative evidence. As the case then stood, none other than Hackett's evidence was available. Watt, Hamilton, and Pereira, were then brought up and told that they would be let on bail to answer at the next Court, if the could find security on £50 each.
At the opening of the Court yesterday, the prisoners arraigned on Thursday were placed in the dock, but in consequence of numerous challenges it was difficult to form a Jury. The Attorney General thereupon applied to the Court to pass sentence upon those who were already convicted, and stated he would proceed against them next Court upon the remaining indictments. Margaret Judah was sentenced to seven years imprisonment in the Female Penitentiary; Finn to 12 months imprisonment, and Spencer referred to the officers of the Reformatory, to see whether they would take him in.
Mr. Phillippo, on behalf of Margaret Judah, moved for an arrest of Judgment, on the ground of appeal to the Supreme Court, as to the legality of receiving Huckett's evidence against the parties whom he implicated in the indictment. The learned Judge declined to grant the motion for arrest of Judgment, but committed the prisoners to the County Jail till after the decision of the Supreme Court in October next.
