Well Looked After. The prisoner Stewart, wlio was | committed for trial on two charges by the local Bench of Magistrates on Monday last, was very closely I guarded, five policemen escorting him from the court house to the gaol, and ! afterwards from the latter place to the railway station. From tlio number of policemen detailed to look after the prisoner one would think that he was a most desperate character. At any rate it wns apparent that the police did not intend to give him a chance to escape again in Muswellbrook, and now that he has been lodged in Maitland Gaol no doubt he will be kept safe until the demands.of ijustice are satisfied. .
