The Court resumed its sittings at ten o’clock this morning. On the Bench, with the learned Chairman, were, GILBERT ELIOTT, Esq., P. M., Dr. ANDERSON, J. P., and W. LAWSON, Esq., M. C.
ALICE CASEY, free by servitude, indicted for stealing two print dresses from the shop of Mr. APPLETON, in George-street, in this town. The peculiar incident in CASEY’s life which obtained for her the honor of her perpetual introduction to the full conclave of assembled magistrates was fully detailed at the time of its occurrence, some two weeks since, in The Australian. CASEY pleaded guilty, and threw herself on the merciful consideration of the Court, and received a sentenced of 6 months, 3rd class, at the Female Factory.
