COLONIAL SQUIRARCHY. Ma. Fnroan,-A case of assault, which excited great interest, came on for hearing befo.e the Police Bench of this towo, on Friday, the 12th instant, and occupied that and the whole of the following day. Their was a full attendance on the bench, there being no less than ten magistrates present-the court being crowded. T'he complainant was Edwin Park, Esq., J. P., member of the Bathurst Bench, and the defendant, Mr. Rotton, landlord of the Queen Victoria Inn ; defendant had been sum moned for a previous day a,!d appeared, when he was called up and discharged, complainant having withtdrawn the charge. It was rumoured, in cou. sequence of his fearing the exposure; it was also rumoured, that the other Magistrates, having heard curious reports of Mr. Pask's conduct, held a court of inquiry, and the result was, that the J. P. was obliged to summon dMr. Rotton a second time, as the other J. P.'a wished to have the case inves tigated. Mr. P-.' affidavit was read, charging Mr. It. with having assaulted him by collaring him and threatening to turn him out of the house, (Queen Victoria Inn) on Thursday night, the 21st of March, to which the defendant pleaded not guilty, but pre viously remarked to the bench, that as he had already been discharged for tihe same case, he did not consider himself bound to answer the second summons, but being desirous of having the case fully investigated, (although Mr. P. had stated, that he, Mr. Rotton had perverted ,the facts,) he had voluntarily appeared, being conscious that he had done nothing but what he was fully justified in doing. After a few observations from complainant and defendant, the court proceeded to anvestigato the merits of the case. It appeared, from the evidence of complainant, that he was returning home frnom Bathurst on the evening of the 21st of March, with his friend and neighbour Mr. Foster; they stopped at Rotton's Inn; whilst there, complainant made a bet with a gentleman named Delany, which bet was won by the J.P.,and on the strength of his winnings, very liberally spent a portion for the entertainment of the parties present, and other gents who atterwards came in. Complainant ordered dinner, with a friend or two as ihis guests, and it appears retired to another room for comfort, being averse to the society of an individual present when he won the bet after which he was intruded upon by this party, and was obliged to eject him. Some violent language took place between him, the complainant, and the defendant, Mr. IRotton, because he did not use Iis endeavours to rid complainant of the intruder. Soon after this ejectment, complainant was again intruded upon by another party, and,attempted to turn him out, but found the.task. rather diffcul t; the J. P. finding that he could not remain unmolested, gave orders for the attendance of the Chief Constable, who was, however, previously sent for by Mr. Rotton. When the Chief ;Constable came defendant desired hiia to clear the house, the Chief Constal,le, however, did not see the necessity of making a clearance, the defendant Insisted upon the parties goingeawy, and took the J. P. by the collar, telling him he should leava the house or.go to bed. This was the substance of the evidence on the complain. ant'a side; but that of Mlr. BRtton's witnesses was very different, and went to prove that the com. plainant had made u.e of very violent and abusive language to defendant, threalening to serve him the same as he had served those who! he considered in truders. The cotaplainant'r language was stated to have been not of very elegant phraseology, and that he evinced a strong disposition to hte violent. Four witnesses stated on oath that they considered com.' plainant drunki; and the chambermnid stated that he was so far. gone as to be compelld to retire to a chamber for the purpose of disgorging the excesses of hi!s evening's debauch. After hearing dufeodatnt's it;lesses the bench retired for the purpose of t.onlideling tie cso e, and shortly after the Iresllllng mtagltratnr gave the following deciseon: " Mi. Itutton, the bench find you guilty of th eslasult,'but considering the Iaivolous and trilling natutre of tihe case, fine you in the lowest penalty of one shilling, with costs; and the bench feel themselves bolund to add, that they very much regret that the costs should have been swelled to such an5 amount r the evidence filling up about one hucd.ed folios. The costs are £3 7s." A SPICTArTOR. Ilathurst, pttill 15.
