John Morgan, of Little Dark Gate-street, a youthful barber, of rather intemperate habits, was summoned for being drunk and disorderly. Police constable Powell deposed that he was sent for by the landlord of the Ship-a-ground, to turn the defendant out of his house, and before arriving there met defendant in the street, and desired him to go home, on which he began to create a great disturbance. The policeman was asked by their worships- how many times the defendant had been brought up before them ? and in reply stated that he bad been so many times that he had lost all reckoning He was bound in recognizances with two sureties in £10 to be thenceforth of good behaviour.
