At Galway Petty Sessions Mr. Thomas Hardy prosecuted Mr. Frederick P. Knight for having struck him with a stick and afterwards kicked him. The magistrates find the offender 2l. or a month’s imprisonment. Mr. Knight paid the fine and left the court. Shortly after Mr. Hardy returned to complain that immediately after going out Mr. Knight called him a “cowardly ruffian” and spat in his face. The magistrate having ordered Mr. Knight to be again brought up fined him 5l. or two months’ imprisonment.
