Court cases

At a Justice of Peace Court lately held at Turriff, in an action at the instance of Mr Chisholm in Lendrum, against a female servant for disobedience of orders, and deserting her service, - the Justices fined her in the forfeiture of her wages, and twenty shillings.

On Monday, John Brown, a vagrant, who had been detected in the act of stealing some wearing apparel from a farm house in the parish of Fyvie, where he had been charitably allowed a night's lodgings, was sentenced by the Sheriff, to confinement and hard labour in Bridewell, for six months.
