William Larmer appeared to an information charging him with stealing a clock, value 7s., in November
last, the property of Isaac Finney. Michael Eullane, cook at the Invalid Depot, stated that he knew Finney had a clock similar to the one produced; he also saw the prisoner at the depot the day upon which the clock was missed. Detective McNamarra gave evidence as to finding the clock in the possession of the prisoner. His Worship said that it was a pity to see a man in prisoner’s
