Monday, 14th Instant

Before Mr. Justice Dowling and a Jury of Civil Inhabitants.

William Warby was indicted for receiving twenty oxen, twenty cows, ten heifers, and ten calves, from Robert Beaver, he well knowing the same to have been before feloniously stolen from Henry O'Brien, at Bulba Creek, on the 10th November, 1831.

The second count laid the property as belonging to Cornelius O'Brien.

After a very long trial, which occupied the whole of the day, the prisoner was convicted on the most clear and satisfactory testimony, and sentenced to be transported for fourteen years to Hobart Town.

The Solicitor General conducted the prosecution, and Messrs. Foster and Therry the defence.
