The three rioters found gnilty — Jones, Kelly, and Healy— were given eight. years each penal servitude to repent their unmanly attack on the police con stables. But, as a protection to the morals of onr community, perhaps the terms of imprisonment passed upon Thomas Sheridan, 'the ohemist; Wil liam Bell, of the Glebe ; and Edward Dominic Bac, the hairdresser, of West Balmain, connected with the Bell and Hales abortion cases, will give our readers still more satisfaction. The first named got 15 years, the second 8 years and Bac 5 years.' The learned judge was evidently actuated by a de sire to check such horrible practices, which, notwithstanding their conse quences, are far too common in the colonies, and a few more like sentences ought to have a dettrrent effect on the immoral, ...
