His Honor very briefly summed up and the jury, without retiring, returned a verdict of Guilty.
Inspector Pender on being called, said he knew nothing else against the prisoner, who had hitherto borne a good character.
His Honor, in addressing the prisoner, said it was a most disgraceful thing for him to try and put the crime on the boy O'Brien. He further belived the prisioner had tried to drug both O'Brien and Beehan. His offence was further aggravated by the fact of his being a publican, and he did not think he could do otherwise than sentence him to four year's penal servitude.

A Dearth of Juryman
A good deal of amusement was created in the Supreme Court yesterday by the list of petty jurors becoming exhausted, owing to one panel being locked up considering Alexander Bell's case, and the prisoner William Corlett challenging all but seven or eight of the remainder.

It then became necessary to select eligible persons from the crowd occupying the body of the Court.

Fun was kept up for some time, owing to the prisoner challenging a number of the impressed jurors; the latter exhibiting by unmistakeable signs their feelings of satisfaction at having their disterestedness called in question.22
