Larceny. - Charles O'Connor, a lad of twelve, was charged with having stolen £5 from the shop of James Coxon, in London Street, on April 12. He admitted having taken 8s. The evidence showed that Mr. Coxon had left £5 in a coat hanging up at the back of the shop. Accused was in the shop on the evening of April 12, and was the only person who could have taken the money. When taxed with having stolen it, he at first denied it, but afterwards admitted having taken 8s. The Bench ordered the boy to receive twelve strokes with a birch rod.
