The General Quarter Sessions of the Peace for this county were held on Tuesday, and following days, at Warminster. George Day and Thomas Bird were indicted for stealing a small tea chest, about 14 lb weight, from a road waggon, were found to be guilty, and appearing to be hardened offenders, they were sentenced to be transported for 14 years.
