6 October 1874

James Houghlahan was indicted for stealing a chain of the value of 1, the property of James Paton. Mr. W.J. Abram prosecuted; the prisoner was not defended. On the morning of the 26th of September, the prosecutor missed his chain, which was attached to a barge in the Bow Creek, and afterwards found it pawned at a marine store dealer's, named Buchan, in Robin Hood lane, for 2s. Buchan said that he bought the chain for old iron; but it was proved that even as old iron the chain was worth 10s. The jury found the prisoner Guilty, and censured the marine store dealer for having so carelessly bought the chain. Mr. Fletcher disallowed his expenses and sentenced the prisoner to be kept at hard labour for three months.
