At the Magistrate's Court, Lyttelton, on Tuesday, a boy named Eric Thompson, aged twelve years, was charged with assaulting another boy named John M'Donald, and robbing him of 5s. The evidence showed that Thompson took McDonald unawares and knocked him down, making his face bleed, and forced him to give up the money. The Bench sentenced Thompson to receive nine strokes with the birch rod.
