BATHURST.

Saturday.

    At the Circuit Court yesterday the whole day was occupied with the case of Nancarrow v Ewan and another, which resulted in a verdict for the defendants.

    Charles Ryan, previously convicted of horse stealing, was sentenced to three years in Darlinghurst. The other cases against him were not proceeded with.

    John Fox, a prisoner under heavy sentence, pleaded guilty to horse stealing, and was remanded to gaol.

    In the case of JE Jones v Ewan and Thompson, plaintiff was not prepared to proceed and accepted a nonsuit. This concluded the civil business.

    The criminal was recommenced. In the case Queen v Ogilvie, Jones v Tuck, for larceny at Dubbo, an application by the prisoners’ counsel for a postponement was granted; it is mentioned as probable that the case will be taken to Sydney for trial.

    William Nicholls, indicted for rape at Forbes, was convicted of intent, and remanded for sentence.

    Henry Munday, tried for an unnatural offence, [bestiality with an ewe sheep], at Mullion, was convicted of an attempt, and sentenced to two years’ hard labour.

    The weather has broken; it commenced raining late last nigh and continued up to the present without intermission; it is now pouring steadily.

    Heavy steady rain has fallen since Friday night, and continues; the drought has completely broken up.

    There are a great number of visitors for the coursing match, which takes place to-day.
