A CASE of rather singular character was brought on today at the police office, which excited considerable attention in court. A respectable-looking young man, named Alexander M'Cullan, who is the foreman of the printing establishment of Mr. Scraggs, was going home about 8 o'clock on Wednesday night, when he was met by two soldiers of the 67th regiment, in the neighbourhood of the military barracks, and assaulted in a most violent manner. One of the prisoners, named Patrick Donnelly, seized him by the throat, while the other fellow rifled his pockets ; but fortunately they were disappointed in their expectations, as all the property he had on his person were two pence, a piece of tobacco, and a key. The prisoners took the money and the tobacco, but left the key in his possession.
   The plaintiff, not withstanding that he is both deaf and dumb, appeared to be a shrewd, intelligent person, and answered readily and properly to the questions which were put to him by Mr. Good, a cabinet-maker, through the medium of the 電umb alphabet.
   Informations were ordered to be taken against the prisoners.

A SAILOR, named John Resor, appeared at the Police Office on Wednesday, to prosecute a woman of disreputable character who resides in Godsill's-lane, for having stolen a purse containing 」3 10s from him on the previous night. What renders this robbery most heartless is the circumstance that the plaintiff was totally wrecked a few days since, in the ship Henrietta, at the Coast of New Ross, and with thirteen of his unfortunate shipmates, was taken from the wreck. The remainder of the crew, amounting to fourteen persons, were lost. The plaintiff stated that he was induced to visit this place in ignorance of the character of the woman, and that the money taken from him left him totally destitute.
