William Harman, free, and Benjamin Holloway,
holding a ticket-of-leave, stood indicted for a high-
way robbery on the person of Mary Lawton, and
stealing various articles of wearing apparel, the
property of her husband, Wm. Lawton, at Bathurst,
on the 20th August last. It appeared that the
prosecutrix had become intoxicated on the day laid in the indictment, and had lain down near a creek, having her bundle then in her possession. The prisoners were seen to take the bundle from her side and carry it away, and it was subsequently found in the possession of Harman, Holloway being at the residence of Harman at the time. The jury found the prisoners guilty of larceny. The Court sentenced them to be worked in irons on the public roads for Two Years.
