BREAKING A POLICEMAN'S LEG.

Richard Thompson, 18, a powerful-looking man, described as a cab-driver, was indicted for being concerned with others in stealing a sum of money from a till in the Old Barge beerhouse, Canal-bank, Peckham; on a second indictment he was charged with violently assaulting Police-constable Barrett, of the P division, while in the execution of his duty, and inflicting on him grievous bodily harm. - According to the evidence, the prisoner with two others went into the Old Barge beerhouse, and after making a disturbance they ran away with the till. A few weeks afterwards Constable Barrett met the prisoner in Peckham, and took him into custody. Prisoner struggled to get away, struck him a violent blow with his fist, and knocked him down, and then kicked him with such force that he broke the officer's leg. - The jury found the prisoner "Guilty," and Mr. Somes sentenced him to 18 months with hard labour.

THE SERIOUS CHARGE OF STEALING RUM.

Walter Day, 22, Daniel Ford, 30, and John Staples, 24, were charged on remand at the Thames Police-court, today, with being concerned together in stealing 7-3/4 gallons of rum, value 7 pounds, the property of the Millwall Dock Company; and Arthur Donald Johnson, 24, and James Thomas Flood, 30, proprietors or managers of the Waterman's Arms public-house, Westferry-road, Poplar, were charged with receiving the same, well knowing it to have been stolen. - It appeared from the evidence for the prosecution that at ten o'clock on the morning of the 17th inst., Constable Barrett was on duty in the Westferry-road, Poplar, when he saw the prisoner Day driving a horse and cart. In the cart were two jars. He drove round the corner to the side-door of the Waterman's Arms. When the constable followed, he saw that the jars had been taken out of the cart. Six or seven minutes afterwards Day came out and got into the cart. Staples then came across the road and got into the cart with Day. The constable then went and saw Sergeant Ormston, of the Millwall Docks. From what he said, the officer searched for Day. When accosted, Day said, "I suppose you've come about those spirits yesterday. I am not going to get myself into trouble for no person. I was going on my round in the Glengall-road yesterday morning, when Dan Ford came to me, and said, "Do you mind earning a few shillings?" You go round the corner to the first house in Marchfield-street." I afterwards called. A big man came out of the passage, and placed six jars in my cart, and told me to drive to the Watermen's Arms, when the big man and another took the jars in there." When Ford was apprehended he said, "I can clear myself," and when charged Staples said he knew nothing about it. On the 18th inst., Sub-inspector Gallagher arrested Flood and Johnson at the Waterman's Arms. They denied having jars containing rum. When the place was searched two jars containing rum were found. Rum was stolen on the 17th inst. from one of the Company's lighters. - The accused men were again remanded for another week.

FURIOUS RIDING.

Edward Warne, 24, stableman, of North End-road, Fulham, was charged on remand with being drunk, and furiously riding in the High-street, Kensington. He was also charged with stealing the horse on which he was riding from a stable in Eli-mews, West Kensington, together with a saddle on the 13th inst., the horse and saddle being the property of Mr. James Pearson, a dairyman, of West Kensington and valued at 100 pounds. When the case was before the magistrate previously, evidence was given that the prisoner about half-past two on the morning of Sunday, the 14th, was seen by Police-constable Barrett to be riding at a furious rate in the High-street. With the assistance of another constable, as he was under the influence of drink, he was taken to the station. It appeared that the prisoner had been in Mr. Pearson's employ for four days previous to the occurrence, but was discharged on the previous day, and the horse, which was a valuable one, was in the stable safe on Saturday night.
The prisoner excused himself on the ground that he was only taking the horse out for exercise. It was not likely he would do anything to injure the horse which had been under his care.
Mr. Shiel sentenced the prisoner to one month's hard labour for being drunk while in charge of a horse.

LAMBETH.

CHARGE OF FREQUENTING. - Alexander Smith, 50, described as a coke dealer, living in Tiverton-lane, Islington, was charged, on remand, with being a suspected person frequenting the Crystal Palace, it was supposed, for the purpose of committing a felony. It was alleged by Detective Barrett that on Bank holiday last he saw the prisoner pushing through the crowd upon the terrace at the Crystal Palace. He saw the prisoner, he alleged, put his hand into the pockets of more than one woman and two women now came forward to say that their pockets had been tried, and they complained to the constable. - Mr. Armstrong cross-examined the witnesses at some length, with a view of showing that the prisoner was a respectable man and that the officer must have made a mistake. - Mr. Biron said he could not entertain such an opinion, and sentenced the prisoner to three months' hard labour. - Mr. Armstrong gave notice of appeal, upon which Mr. Biron allowed the prisoner out upon bail.

JUDGING BY LOOKS.

A boy named Arthur Martin was charged with stealing plate the property of Mrs. Elizabeth Smith, the wife of a commercial traveller, residing in Selwood-terrace, Onslow-gardens, South Kensington. - The prosecutrix said she employed the prisoner every week to wash her dog. On Good Friday she missed one spoon. The servant examined the plate and missed two forks and other articles. When the prisoner came on Friday she asked him what he took away from the house on Thursday. He looked full in her face and said "Nothing." She thought he was right and she was wrong, as he "looked honest." After a great deal of cross-questioning, he said "I have got one." In a little while he admitted taking the other things and said he gave one of the spoons to another boy who was outside. The prisoner afterwards said another boy persuaded him to take them. - The prisoner told the magistrate that the prosecutrix promised to let him off if he admitted taking the forks. He said he took the forks but it was not true. He took the spoons. - Police-constable Barrett said he was called to the house and found both boys detained. The other boy said he had a spoon from the prisoner. He (witness) went to where the prisoner lived and found the spoon. He also found a spoon at the house where the other boy resided. - Mr. Paget: Is the other boy here? - The constable: No, sir. - Mr. Paget remanded the prisoner and directed inquiries to be made about the other boy.
