South Eastern Gazette 05 January 1858.

ROCHESTER. COUNTY PETTY SESSIONS.

William Archer, a musician, was charged with assaulting Mr. D. Barnard, proprietor of the "Railway Saloon," Chatham. Mr. Stephenson appeared in support of the complainant.

The defendant had been engaged for some time in Mr. Barnard's orchestra as one of the cornet a piston players, and the complainant had behaved with great kindness to him. From something which occurred, however, complainant was compelled to discharge him from the company, which so exasperated the defendant that he made his appearance on Mr. Barnard's premises in a filthy state of intoxication, and after assaulting complainant with the foulest epithets struck him several times and refused to leave the premises.
His wife, who was with him, was also very violent.

The magistrates convicted him in a penalty, including costs, of 13s. 6d. which the defendant paid.
