them with robbing William Shields of fifty
six dollars. _The prosecutor stated that on,
the night of -,the,l4th .of May. . last, while
considerablyunder the influence of liquor,
he met two men, the defendants he be
lieved, on St. Clair street, and was taken
by them to the vicinity of Trimble's 'Varie
ties, on Penn street, and there robbed of
his money. He was first made aware of the
robbery by two policemen who had arrested
the defends.nts. Mr. McMullen, constable
. of the Fourth ward, testified he assisted in
i arresting the defendants; almit twoti'clock
-on the morning of the 15th of May; they
represented they had taken charge of a
drunken man (the ssecutetY ce

to having noticed the defendants, d in
eoriaparry with a drunken man, disappear in
an alley near Trimble'm preSently the de
fendants returned to the street, looked
around suspiciously, and then went to an
oyster saloon in the neighborhood. The
efileer went into the alley, found the proge-'
cutor lying down, his pockets presenting
the appearance of having been. hastily
"one through,'.' and mused him tp. Soon
after the defendants were arrested at a sa-
loon where they had ordered oyster% taken
to the Mayor's office,, searched, and money
corresponding to the `description given by
the.prosecutor found in the possession Of
Perkins, wrapped in a handkerchief, which
I also belonged to the prosecutor.
i • The defense &ad.-consisted -tn an effort
to prove the good character of the accused.
tThe 'evidence, however, was sufficiently
conclusive to establish guilt, and the jury
found a verdict accordingly; the eloquent
portrayal by Mr. Cochran (who appeared
for Perkins) of the possibility of the fact
hereafter appearing that his client wis in-,
nocent,, and that money honestly ftihed
and found in his possession had been the
means of consigning him to a dungeon,
failing of its intended effect. i The fashion
still prevails, notwithstandingfrequent and
pointed rebukes from the Court, of counsel
endeavoring to frighten jurors into finding
verclictsof acquittal in the plainest cases of
guilt by such demonstrations. To the
credit of jurors it must be said they almost
invariably fail of effect; but we do think
that those members of the bar who so die
play their talent should have a higher re
gard or estimation of the intelligence of
jurors, and that they should not be allowed
to insult them by appeals to their conscience
against the plairest common sense.
Perkins was sentenced to undergo three
Eears imprisonment in the Penitentiary.
yler, who had been "recommended to
mercy," was sentenced to one year's im
prieonment--the Court being ofthe opinion,
not that under the law he was less guilty
than his companion, but that in conse

evidence•of his previous good character,
leniency would result beneficially in his
AN OFFENSE REPEATED
William Patterson, a young man of per
haps twenty-five years of age, was arraign
ed on an indictment charging him with for
nication and bastardy. The complainant
was Elizabeth Henry, twenty years of age,
residing with her mother in Bedford street,
this city. Miss Henry testified that the
child, a female, was begotten by the defen
dant in July, lEd7, and born on the:.l2d of
April, 1868, and that she previously had a.
child, of which the defendant was also the
father. She was searchingly cross-exam
ined as to her associations with young
men, but protested that defendant was the
only one with whom she had been inti
mate. The mother of the prosecutrix testi
fied she bad forbidden the defendant to come
in her house, end that he was not in the
house to her knowledge during July last,
although she had frequently seen him with
her daughter outside. The case was sub
mitted without argument, and the jury re
turned a verdict of ,guilty. The defendant
was sentenced to pay a fire of ten 'dollars
to the Guardians of the Poor, the sum of
twentv-five dollars to the prosecutrix, and
one dollar and a- quarter per week for five
years for the support of the child.'
