MURDEROUS ASSAULT ON A FEMALE. Mary Kelly, a milkwoman, was charged, at Clerkenwell Police-court, with committing a murderous assault on Mrs. Kate Roach, of 8, Vine- street, Leather-lane. Mr. Ricketts appeared for the prosecution, and Mr. John Wakeling for the defence. The Complainant said that she contracted with Mr. Osborn, of Bedford-street, Leather-lane, for the milk of three cows. On Tuesday, the 27th of last month, she was in the cow-shed to milk her cows, and the prisoner blackguarded her, calling her a foul name. As she was about to milk the third cow the prisoner got up and struck her on the head with a stool, saying, "Take that." The blow was given with such force that it produced a large wound, and blood flowed profusely. The prisoner followed this up by again striking her on the shoulder with the shovel. She was so bad that she had to be taken to the Royal Free Hospital, where she was an in-patient for eleven days. During that time she suffered great pain in her head, and her wounds had to be dressed twice a day. She is now an out-patient of the hospital, and was compelled to attend at the hospital every day to have her wounds dressed. In cross-examination the prosecutrix admitted that she abused the prisoner, and witnesses were called who said that, as far as bad language was con- cerned, there were six of one and half-a-dozen of the other. Mr. J. D. Hill, resident medical officer of the Royal Free Hospital, said, that on the 27th of last month the complainant was brought to the hospital. She was very pale, and she was suffer- ing from the loss of a large quantity of blood. He examined a large wound on her forehead. It was about an inch and a half in extent. It was a dangerous wound, and the bone was exposed. The violence that produced that wound, he con- sidered, might have produced internal hemorrhage. He considered that the blow was dangerous, as it was liable to cause disease of the bone and pro- duce inflammation of the brain. Mr. Wakeling made an energetic defence, and said that, as both parties were to blame in the matter, he hoped the magistrate would not think of sending the case for trial, but would inflict a fine. The Magistrate said it was a case, after the evidence of Mr. Hill, that he could not decide; and he should therefore send the case before a jury. He would, however, take bail, the prisoner herself in .£40, and two sureties in the sum of .£20 each.
