MARLBOROUGH-STREET.

AN OLD OFFENDER. - Lily De Gray, alias Maud Rothschild, Tot Fay, Maud Le Grand, Violet St. John, Lily Sinclair, &c., who has been many times charged at this court, was again placed in the dock to answer the charge of behaving in a disorderly manner, and making use of obscene language. The accused was respectably dressed, and gave her age as 21, but she is much older. While the evidence was being taken she stood in a meek attitude, bending her head and placing her hand in front of her face. Constable Sanders, 395 D, said that at 10 minutes to 12 o'clock on Friday night he saw the prisoner in Langham-street. She had been turned out of a house, and was shouting so loudly that the inhabitants opened their windows and looked into the street to see what was the cause of the noise. He told her to go away, and as she refused to took her into custody. A large crowd had assembled, and he heard the woman threaten to set the house on fire. The landlady of the house deposed that last Sunday night the prisoner called upon her, and said she had just arrived from Paris, and begged to be taken in. She paid a week's rent in advance, and the witness admitted her into the house. On Monday night the accused drove up to the house in a cab and called the driver foul names. Ever since she had taken lodgings at her house she had been in a continuous state of intoxication, and the witness's lodgers threatened to leave if the woman were not sent away. She had been offered the rent if she would leave, but she refused to take it.
Mr. Newton: You could not turn her out as she had paid her rent, without notice. The witness, continuing, said she did not know what to do. The woman threatened to take their lives, and said she would stab her (witness's) boy. She would not keep to her own room, and her conduct was so outrageous that she had to be turned out of the house. Mr. Newton said that the proper course to have adopted would have been to send for the police. In reply to Mr. Newton, Serjt. Brewer, the gaoler, said prisoner was known by about 20 different names. She had been charged many times, and last January was ordered to find a surety to be of good behaviour for three months. In defence, the accused stated that she had only taken a little drop too much, and was singing in her room, when they came and turned her into the street. Mr. Newton inflicted a fine of 40s., or one month's imprisonment.
