    ALLEGED UNNATURAL OFFENCE.—Frederick Phillips, 18, a butcher, was charged in the Water Police Court on Tuesday with having committed an unnatural offence on a boy named Willie Wilson, who resides with a Mrs Bersine at 67, Riley-street. The prisoner, it is alleged, went to the stables at the back of the dwelling-house with a horse, and seeing the little boy sent him to Mrs Bersine for a candle. On his return the offence is alleged to have been committed. The evidence was very revolting. The prisoner was committed to take his trial at the next Court of Quarter Sessions. Bail was allowed.
