THE MERCURY rj'UBLISIIËD DA.ILV.1 TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 16. 183S. A case of unusual interest awaits de- cision in tlie Police Court. It involves so ne most important matters in the economy of the colony. The circum- stances are briefly those : A fire having o?curred in Watchorn-street, on the pre- mises of one Jacob Kexo, a publican, the coroner, A. B. Jokes, Esq , in due time, held an inquest upon it. At tha' inquest two women gave certain evidence which much affected Ktso's character ia self-defence he exhibited informations for perjury against them in tlie Police Cjurfc. Mn. Brewed, conducted the com- plainant's case ; Messus. W. L. Dobsos rtud Mobiabtv. appeared for the defend- ants. The law, decreeing severe penal tics against perjury, has wisely demanded j fiat the offence shall be fully and com- pletely committed before conviction can take place. In fact, there is a wide dif- ference between perjury commonly so called, and perjury called such in law. For whi'e the one offence may...
