Saturday Nov 15 - Before Mr Justice Burton and a Jury of inhabitants. John Kennedy was indicted for assaulting Nicholas Delaney, on the highway, near Penrith, on the 2nd September, and stealing from his person one coat, one handkerchief, and 4 one pound notes. From the evidence it appeared, that on the day named in the indictment, the prisoner was at the King's Head near Penrith, when Delaney was paid the sum of five pounds. Shortly afterwards they were both seen in company on the road opposite Mrs Brooks' premises, apparently both very much intoxicated; Delaney fell down into a gulley; but both he and the prisoner afterwards went along the road, and when they had proceeded about a quarter of a mile they both got over the fence to go a near cut through the bush to Delaney's house; one of Mrs Brooks' servants, who was at work near the spot, saw them both get over, and saw Delaney fall down; he got up and went towards his own house. In about ten minutes after this, the man looked around and saw Delaney lying on the ground with nothing on but his shirt, and the prisoner standing by him; he instantly gave an alarm, and the prisoner was taken into custody; all Delaney's clothes were in a bundle; the prisoner said that he had taken the clothes off him for the purpose of taking care of him. On the way to the watch-house a black handkerchief the property of Delaney was found on the prisoner's person; but he told the constable that Delaney had stripped to fight him. Delaney was unable to speak, and was removed to one of Mrs Brooks' huts, where he was put to bed, and slept for some hours; when he got up he missed the handkerchief out of his pocket; he appeared nearly sober, and started for the purpose of going home, but was found next morning lying dead about a quarter of a mile from his own house. Dr Black who attended the Coroner's inquest, deposed that he had exanimed the body of the deceased; there were several contused lacerated wounds on the head, and one on the nose; probably caused by falling on a stump or stone; it was possible that a stick would have caused the wounds - but it was his (Dr Black's) opinion, that they were caused by falls; on examining the brain he found about three ounces of extravaseated blood on the left hemisphere. The prisoner in his defence, asked the jury whether it was likely if he wanted to rob the deceased of his money, he would not have done so without taking the trounble to undress him? Mr Justice Burton, in putting the case to the Jury, remarked, that in order to constitute the offence for which the prisoner stood indicted, there must be either violence used, or bodily fear caused' a threat, or the production of an unalwful instrument would constitute a robbery, but the mere taking away would not. In the present case, were the Jury saisfied there was a stealing? And if so, was that stealing with violence? For stealing from the person without violence, was not a capital offence. If a person was knocked down and rendered senseless, and then robbed, that was a robbery, for there was actual violence; and, if a person struggle to keep his property, there must be violence used to take it away from him; but if a person was lying insensible at the time he was robbed, there is no violence. If a person be drunk and make resistance, that constitutes violence. In the present case, if the Jury considered that Delaney was lying senseless at the time of the robbery, they would return a verdict of guilty of larceny upon the person; unless they were of opinion that the prisoner either by blows with a stick, or by beating the head of Delaney on the gound, caused that insensibility, then they would return a verdict of guilty of the whole charge. - Guilty of larceny ipon the person. Remanded to take his trial on another charge. (It seems very extroadinary if Delaney died of falls received when in a state of drunkeness, from which he recovered so far as to walk home. ED).
