Police Reports

MARY COOPER, Morley (4), wife of JOHN COOPER, was presented before the Court with her nasal protuberance disordered. It appeared on the oath of the constabulary, that the prisoner had deported herself in a pugilistic capacity towards another of her sex during divine service, on Sunday, while in a state of inebriety. She was therefore sentenced to embellish the stocks for two hours.
