21 June, 1850

TRURO POLICE - On Wednesday last, Joseph WHITTA, grocer, was committed to take his trial at the next sessions for stealing a waistcoat, the property of John CULLIS, of St Austell, labourer. The waistcoat was stated to have been stolen at a lodging house kept by William TRENAILE, in Calenick Street, Truro. On the same day William JORY, Joseph JORY, a sailor, and Ferdinando DENNIS, a brush-maker, were charged with assaulting William COWLE. The complainant was going over Boscawen-bridge, between five and six in the morning carrying a pasty in his hand, on his way to work. He was on one side of the bridge, and they on the other; they went across, and without speaking a word, knocked him down, blackened his eyes, took away his pasty, trampled on it and threw the pieces in his face. For this unprovoked and disgraceful assault, they were each fined 40s. and 10s. costs, and in default of immediate payment were committed to the house of correction for two calendar months. William Jory and Ferdinando Dennis were also fined 40s. each, and 8s. 3d. costs, for assaulting William WOOLCOCK, policeman, when in the execution of his duty; in default of payment they were each committed to hard labour for one calendar month, to commence at the expiration of their former term of imprisonment. Ferdinando Dennis was also fined £2 and 10s. costs, for assaulting policeman FITZSIMMONS, when in the discharge of his duty, and in default of payment he was committed for one month to hard labour, to commence at the expiration of his former sentences.

The following is from the The Creswick & Clunes Advertiser or County of Talbot Agricultural Journal:

Trevan William Henry Funeral 2-Jul-1861 Funeral of William Henry Trevan.
- On Thursday evening last, Richard Trevan of this town, received intelligence, per express, that his brother William Henry Trevan had been killed by the falling of a heavy mass of rock, in a claim of Simmond’s Reef Company, at Blackwood. He at once - although at a distance of 42 miles - made arrangements to have the mortal remains of his relative brought over to Creswick. Mr Dennis, proprietor of one of the Ballarat coaches, undertook the task, but unfortunately, about seven miles before reaching Blackwood, one of the horses dropped down dead, and had to be replaced by another one. The party eventually reached Blackwood, on Friday, just after the inquest on the body of the deceased (and on the body of James Nankervis, killed at the same time) had been held. The mortal remains reached Creswick on Sunday at 1 p.m. and were committed to the grave the same day at 2.30 p.m. About 200 persons, several of whom were on horseback and in carriages, formed part of the funeral procession. In the absence of the Rev Mr King, Wesleyan Minister, who had to hold divine service at Kingston and Bullarook on that day, Mr T Cooper of Albert Street, was requested to conduct the religious ceremony. Mr Cooper read the funeral service in a very impressive manner, and after the singing of an appropriate hymn, the whole was concluded with prayer. Deceased, only 23 years of age, was very much respected.
