GALLAGHER

GAITLEY

Duncan

Joseph

Michael

Hugh

Privates of the 30th regiment, for a violent assault on WILLIAM THOMPSON, between Lifford and Strabane, on 5th December last.

From the evidence adduced it was quite clear the soldiers were guilty of a very aggravated assault on the prosecutor, who was cut on the head, and received a stab in the side from one of them. The officer proved that blood found on the bayonets of two of the prisoners, but evidence as to the identity of which of them had committed the assault failed; the witnesses could not distinguish between them, and they were consequently acquitted
