Gidley, M.D.) Joseph Gargrave, of the Branch Post-office, Bethnal-green, and James Gargrare, of the School of Musketry, Hythe, a sergeant in the 33rd Regiment of foot, appeared in annwer to a summons, charged with having, on the 7th of October, at Sandgate, openly bathed on the beach.

It appeared from the evidence of P.C. Jordan, K.C.C., that on Sunday afternoon, about five o'clock, he saw the defendants bathing in view of several inhabited houses, and near the "Marine Hotel." The constable asked what business they had bathing there, and they told him they were not aware it was not allowed. They accompanied him to Seabrook, and he reported the case.

Dismissed with a caution.
