Henry Lyons and Owen Bray were charged on Monday with a violent assault, and robbing a free subject, and the same on whose account those men were now brought up, who stated the case. He had been induced to join the two jovial souls in a drinking bout, and after drinking more than he could well carry, the stupifying effects of the liquor began to operate. He fell an easy prey to his boon companions. During a short slumber, some dollars, which had been concealed from mortal ken within his pockets, took their departure most surprisingly quick, and as it seemed evident, as well to complainant as to the Bench, that the prisoner and some others had been the chief and sole agents in this ill-timed departure, both men were sentenced to take their departure for a penal settlement, there to reside during a period of full three years.
The Australian, 19 July 1826.
