CHARGES OF FRAUD ON THE EXCISE, ----- Informations have also been laid against a great many other persons here, whose cases have not yet been heard. On Friday last, Mr. P. A. Morrison, wine and spirit merchant of this city, was charged with having sold a quantity of whisky to Mr. Robert Scott, of the Maids Head, Newton Flotman. in this county, he having only a retail license, and having thereby subjected himself to a fine of 50l. Mr. Jay appeared to support the information, and Mr. Thomas Palmer, for the defence. Mr. Jay said, this information was founded on the 6th of Geo. IV., which says, that no person having but a retailer's license shall sell liquor to any dealer in spirits, under the above penalty. He called Mr. George Serjeant, Excise officer, who said he lived at Shottisham. He took some whiskey from Mr Scotts on the 14th of April; there was one gallon, and 13-16ths of whiskey, in a bottle, and there appeared to have been a pint and a half taken out, supposing it to have been full. It was in the cellar, and round it he found a note which had not been opened, directed to Mr. Scott ; it was as follows: Dear Sir,-The permit for the whisky is in Mr. Micklethwaits name, and must be kept out of the way. Mr. Scott was a retailer of spirits, and kept the Maids Head, Newton. The letter was directed to Mr. C. Micklethwait, Newton. He (Mr. Serjeant) could not find any person of that name in Newton, but in Saxlingham he found a person of that name at Mr. Wilkersons, the clergyman ; but when he went there the young gentleman positively denied having anything to do with the transaction. He was a pupil of Mr. Wilkersons, and there were several young gentlemen there training for college. The officer said that -Mr. Scott told him that he had it come in Micklethwaits name that his brewer might not know it, and then again that it was for Mr Micklethwait himself; but Mr. Scott himself denied having said anything of the sort to the officers. Robert Young, another officer, corroborated the chief officers account and they then called Scott on the part of the prosecution. Mr. Palmer then said the evidence of the officers as to what Scott said, could not be taken, inasmuch as they now called the man himself, and Scott in his examination denied having said anything of the sort, and added that he was only tied to his brewer for brandy, rum, and gin. Mr. W. N. Micklethwait said he resided at Taverham Hall. He did not recollect ordering any whiskey of Mr. Morrison, but he might have done so. About a week previously to the bottle coming, he was at Scotts house, and Mr. Morrison was also there. He called for a glass of whiskey. Mr. Scott had none; when Mr. Sayer, who was also there, said there is a liquor merchant, he will send you some, but he did not recollect ordering any. The Magistrates having heard the whole affair, thought there was no case against .Mr. Morrison, and dismissed the summons. -----
