      A case was tried in the court: Brown v. Wanliss. The gist of the case is that Archibald Wanliss, a sheep farmer at Barrowhill and Biddleston, accused James Brown, a neighbor, of stealing sheep from Wanliss. Brown was suing Wanliss for injuries sustained when the plaintiff was apprehended along with is brother on the charge of sheep-stealing. Brown and Wanliss were conveyed in separate carts to Alnwick and locked in separate cells until the case could be heard. The plaintiff alleged that Wanliss acted with malice. The case was resumed on Monday, malice could not be proved, so the case was dismissed.
