BECCLES The PETTY SESSIONS

Were held on Friday last, before the Mayor, (in the chair), and Dr CROWFOOT. William ARNOLD, veterinary surgeon, of Beccles, was summoned for neglecting to pay a poor rate of 6 Shillings and 8 Pence. It appeared from the evidence of Mr LOVE, assistant overseer, that the defendant hires [sic] a house in the New Market, and that previous to the last quarter he had been rated at 4 Shillings and 6 Pence instead of 6 Shillings and 8 Pence, on account of his indigent circumstances; but in consequence of the shop having been let during the latter part of the last quarter, and occupied by himself and family at the beginning, the rate had been raised to the proper amount of 6 Shillings and 8 Pence, which the defendant refused to pay, contending that the shop had not been used for any profitable occupation. The Bench ordered the payment of the 6 Shillings and 8 Pence, and costs, and as defendant was unable to pay a distress was issued upon his goods.

EPITOME OF NORFOLK NEWS ...On Saturday the 15th July, Thomas BAYES, recently a footman in the service of Mr AMHURST. of Didlington-park, and Emily BAYES, a well-dressed woman, alleged to be his wife, were charged before the magistrates, at Swaffham, with breaking into Didlington Hall and stealing a cash box containing 110 Pounds. William FORD, butler to Mr AMHURST, said that the prisoner had been discharged on suspicion of having committed a petty theft. He knew where the key of the butler's office, in which the cash-box had been kept, was generally put, and also a window was always kept open during the summer at the back of the house, by which entrance could be obtained into the interior. The prisoner had gone to London, but two witnesses stated that on the night of the robbery they had seen him near Didlington Hall.Suspicion consequently fell on him, and he was apprehended in London. A bundle of bank-notes was found in a house where the female prisoner had been, and was handed to the police. The prisoner made a statement, in which he said he had gone to Norfolk to visit his father. While there he got drunk, and instead of visiting his friends he went into Didlington Hall, by the open window at the back, opened the door of the butler's office with the key, which he found in its usual place, broke open the cupboard, and took the cash box. He told his wife that his father had given him the money, and she knew nothing of the robbery. BAYES was fully committed for trial at Norwich Assizes, and the woman was remanded to ascertain if she was married. If she is she will be discharged.
