ASSAULT ON A LANDLORD
Thursday March 13th:- Before Captain Kennicott R.N., A.M. Leith and
James Tolputt, Esqs.
Charles M'Bride, 21st Fusiliers, came up with another soldier to the
"Victoria Inn," South Street, about 20 minutes past 12 o'clock on
Thursday morning, just as Mr. Boult was closing his door, and wanted
drink. Mr. Boult told them they could not have any; it was too late; and
he shut the door. But they forced the door open, and prisoner collared
witness; but P.C. Reynolds hearing a cry out, hastened up; and after
some trouble, made him release his hold. On the way to the station the
prisoner struck Reynolds on the face and kicked him. The bench sent him
to seven days' hard labour.

FOLKESTONE BRUTAL ASSAULT
On Friday sennight, between eleven and twelve o’clock, a man named Pope,
a fisherman, residing at the end of South Street, went into the
“Victoria” public-house with two women, and called for beer. A second
pint was called for, which the landlord (Mr. Boult) desired to be paid
for; Pope refused, the landlord touched his coat to expostulate with
him, when he was struck such a violent blow upon the lower jaw as to
fracture it severely; the teeth were driven completely into the gums.
Medical assistance was procured and on Saturday the jaw and teeth were
set, but the poor fellow remains in great agony, being unable to partake
in nourishment except through a quill. The man Pope was taken into
custody, but through the intercession of his neighbours, and on his
offering to pay all expenses of medical attendance, he was not given in
charge by the landlord.
