ROBBERY OF FLANNEL FROM A SHOP DOOR
John Kelley and Mary Ann Clark, were arraigned 
on a charge of stealing 40 yards of blur union flannel
from the shop door of Mr. J. J. Singleton, draper of
Church Street, between ten and eleven o'clock on
the night of the 3rd instant. Mary Johnson, the keeper
of a lodging house in Dale Street, deposed that the
female prisoner came to her and sold her sufficient
blue union flannel to make two petticoats. She had 
had it for three days when she gave it up to P.S. Pool.
The male prisoner had spoken to another man in the
Three Crowns beer-house in Stanley Street, of having
some cloth to sell.

Mrs. Topping, the female searcher, said that she had
found a petticoat upon the female prisoner, made of
similar material to that produced by P.S. Pool.

The prisoners both pleaded guilty, and were committed to
Sessions for trial.
