CHARGE OF ASSAULT.

Mr Phillips, of the Eagle and Child, Golden Ball street, was charged with violently assaulting a son of Mr Barnard of the Market-place, ironmonger, under the following circumstances. Master Barnard stated that as he was leaving the School of Design on the previous Friday evening about half past nine, he received some severe blows from a stick inflicted by some person who had apparently secreted himself. The blows he received were so severe that he became insensible, and when he recovered he found himself on St George's bridge, being led by his brother and another boy towards his own home. He did not find out who was the person who inflicted the blows until the following day when he ascertained that it was Mr Phillips.

Henry Stebbing, a little boy, corroborated the complainant's statement, and added that he saw Mr Phillips, whom he knew, secreted behind one of the doors leading from the School of Design apparently looking out for someone.

Mr Phillips, in answer to the charge stated that his son who attends the same school as Master Barnard had complained to him several times of Barnard's striking him and had on one or two occasions been unwell in consequence. He (Mr Phillips) therefore made up his mind not to allow this conduct to be continued, and he stationed himself by the door in order to watch. Whilst he was so situate he saw Barnard strike his boy and he, (Mr Phillips) therefore struck Barnard in return, with a little stick he had in his hand, but he had unfortunately struck him more severely than he intended and was very sorry that he had done so. He would not deny the charge, but said he felt provoked at the time at his son having been struck so often.

Mr Masters, surgeon, on being questioned by the magistrates, stated he had examined Master Barnard, and found seven rather severe bruises on his person.

Some of the magistrates after consulting together were desirous of inflicting a fine on Mr Phillips of £2 plus costs; but one or two of the magistrates thinking this was too heavy, the room was cleared for a short time that the magistrates might deliberate and on the door being opened again we found the magistrates had agreed to fine Mr Phillips £1 including costs.

Mr Barnard addressing the Mayor – Then if I take a stick and waylay Mr Phillips, and strike him very hard I may expect to be fined only £1? The Mayor – I cannot say anything about that. Mr Barnard – that seems to be Sword-room justice.

 

Thank you Kate.
