MONDAY.— JANE THOMPSON, assigned to Mr. MOORE, of Liverpool, was put to the bar, charged with being drunk, and presenting herself at the door of Mrs. THOMPKINS in Prince-street, to whom she had formerly been assigned, demanded admittance for some articles she had taken it into her head belonged to her. Mr. WESTGATE, a lodger in the house, came to the door, and seeing her in such a state, gave her into custody. She entered into a most lengthened and supplicating speech to the Bench in extenuation, in which she was stopt short, by being ordered 30 days to Mrs. GORDON’s seclusion, and to be sent to Liverpool.
