I AND MY MATE, TWO men in the employ of Mr. McLoughlin, the Upholsterer, of Argyle-Street, answering to the names of Thomas Williams and Thomas Harrison, the latter a newly arrived T.L. by the Nile, were charged bv Mr. Mc Loughlin with misconduct in leaving their work for an hour that morning to tipple in a public house, from whence their master had to fetch them “vi et armis”.  Williams was sent to the house of correction for six days, and Harrison for a fortnight.
