WILLIAM MOWBRAY

Church Street, West Hartlepool


A TRADESMAN IMPRISONED FOR BEATING HIS WIFE

On Monday, at the West Hartlepool Petty Sessions, William Mowbray, a jeweller and watch-maker, occupying a large shop in Church-street, the leading thoroughfare in the town, was charged by Sarah Mowbray his wife, with violently assaulting her. Mr. Hopper appeared for the complainant, whose evidence was to the effect that her husband, without provocation, commenced to beat his son (a mere lad) and one of his daughters, and upon her remonstrating with him, he seized her by the throat (on which the marks of his fingers were plainly visible) and dealt her several blows. With the assistance of her son and daughters they ultimately overpowered him, until their cries brought assistance. She had previously been more than once driven from the house owing to his violence. A dock labourer named Frederick Alsopp, who stated he was an entire stranger to both parties, said that the crowd round defendant's shop drew his attention to it, and on entering he saw defendant between the two counters, striking his wife in a very savage manner. Defendant, who seemed to be violently excited, denied the assault, and charged his wife and family with conspiring against him. The magistrates said the case was a most sad one, and they could only decide against the defendant after such strong evidence - especially that of Alsopp, who was a perfectly disinterested party, and in order to mark their strong sense of the defendant's conduct (as he had forfeited the six months' recognisances in which he was recently bound), they should commit him to Durham Gaol for one month, with hard labour.

ROBERT DAVISON

Market Place, Bishop Auckland


A MYSTERIOUS BURGLARY

A singular burglary was reported to have been committed at the house of Mr. Robert Davison, jeweller, at Bishop Auckland, one night last week. Mr. Davison, senior, it is said, was aroused during the night by a noise downstairs, and on getting out of bed saw some one with a light pass his bedroom door. He called both his sons, and got a double-barrelled gun for him-self and a revolver for his son Henry. He called his son Robert, but could get no answer. On going downstairs they found a square broken in the front-room window, and another in the back kitchen window, and a muffler left behind. The burglar had taken his departure, and nothing appeared to be disturbed. Next morning, however, a gold watch and albert chain and a dress ring belonging to Robert were missing from the sitting-room mantelpiece. Information was given to the police, and Sergeants Harrison and Thompson went to make an investigation, but found no trace except a few footprints about outside the house. From the peculiar circumstances they were at a loss to conceive whether or not the articles were really taken away by burglars, and this was confirmed when the following morning, the watch and guard came by post enclosed in a matchbox, unpaid and addressed to Mr. Robert Davison, Market-place Bishop Auckland. The affair has caused considerable gossip in the town.

W. LISTER & SONS

Mosley Street, Newcastle


FIRE IN NEWCASTLE

Shortly after two o'clock on Monday morning a fire of an exceedingly alarming character broke out on the premises of Messrs. Lister and Sons, jewellers and silversmiths, Mosley-street, Newcastle. A boy named Taylor, son of one of the watchmen in the employment of the Messrs. Lister who was sleeping in one of the attics at the top of the building, was awoke by a suffocating smell. He immediately gave the alarm to the other inmates and it was discovered that a fire was raging in an adjoining attic, in which were stowed away a number of empty boxes, surrounded by straw and shavings. Means were at once taken to remove such articles of furniture as seemed to be in immediate danger. The intelligence having been communicated to the Manors station, the hose and reel from that division were soon upon the spot. There was, happily, a good pressure of water, a plentiful stream was directed upon the burning mass, and by the united efforts put forth, the fire was fortunately confined to the attic in which it first manifested itself. The roof of that apartment was almost totally destroyed, the adjoining apartments being also much burned and otherwise injured by the water but about three o'clock all symptoms of danger had disappeared.
