LIFE IN LONDON: j 8IAD IX TBTTE. Margaret Thompson, apparently about 23 or 24, was charged, before Mr. Vaughan, at Bow-street with being drunk and incapable in the Tottenham- court-road. The offence having been proved, the gaoler stated that t.be prisoner was well known at this court, having frequently undergone imprisonment for drunken and disorderly behaviour. No sooner did she come out of prison after serving her term for one offence than she was charged with having committed another. The prisoner said that, unfortunately, this was so. She couldn't help it. She had no control ovev herself at all. Mr. Vaughan asked her whether, when she was Bober, as she was then, she did not refleet on the sad and sinful nature of her life. The prisoner said she supposed it wouldall have a bad ending some day; but Bhe eeuldn't help it. The worthy magistrate asked if she had no friends. She said she had none in London, but a married sister of her's lived near Swansea, in Glamorganshire, who had frequently wantecTher to leave town and go down there. There was nothing she would like better to do, but she had got herself and her dress in such a wretched state that she was not fit to go anywhere but to a prison or a public-house. If she could be assisted to get treats things she would go down. Mr. Vaughan put several questions to her as to the state and con- dition of her friends, and elicited from her state- ments to the effect that her sister's husband was a clerk, that both her parents were dead, that she her- self had left home and come up to town some years ago with a gentleman," who had deserted her; and that after he had left her she had led the miserable life—alternately in public-houses and in prisons— that she was now leading. Mr. Vaughan remanded the prisoner for a week, telling her that her sfster would be communicated with, and if she were willing to receive the prisoner everything would be done to enable her to go down to Glamorganshire as she desired.
