At the petty sessions on Monday, before the Rev. Dr. Poore and the Rev. G. B. Moore, licences of several innkeeper's in the district of Sittingbourne were renewed.

 J. M. Chambers applied for a licence to sell excisable liquors by retail, but was refused.

Mr. Stephenson also appeared to support the following applications:-

Patrick Lockney, "Rose, Shamrock and Thistle," High Street, Blue Town, Sheerness; John Mills Chambers, "Good Intent," Blue Town, Sheerness; Charles Hammond, "Navy Arms," Blue Town, Sheerness.

The notices having been duly proved, the applications were referred to the Sittingbourne bench for consideration at the adjourned sittings on the 15th instant.

THE KNIFE.

John Gibson, a seaman, belonging to H.M.S, Trafalgar, was taken before the Rev. Dr. Poore, on Thursday, charged with stabbing William Hockin, a carpenter on board H.M.S Minotaur, on Sunday evening.

It appeared from the prosecutor's statement that between 11 and 12 o'clock at night he was at the “Rose and Thistle” in Blue-town, Sheerness, having his supper with other men, when a disturbance took place outside, and a part of the sailors belongings to the Trafalgar tempted to burst open the door. They succeeded in effecting an entrance by breaking in a panel, the prisoner being one of them. He had an open knife in his hand. The prosecutor and others attempted to put him out, when he struck at him with the knife, and inflicted a wound between the thumb and the wrist. The prisoner was committed for trial.
