SATURDAY, DEC. 23. (abridged)
James H was charged that he was disobedient, lazy, and insubordinate; he pretended to be sick and went to the hospital, a distance of 4 miles, where they gave him “a dose of stuff”. They would not exempt him. He did not return until 11 o’clock at night.

The district constable proved on oath, that he saw him in a public house, and that he heard him say whilst therein, that his master and all the people in the house talked nothing but Irish, and he could not bear it.

The prisoner was admonished very patiently, but he stood in a sullen uncouth posture, entirely forgetting the respect due to his superiors. Sentence, 25 lashes.
