The Tighe family certainly kept William Hodge busy!

STEALING - A girl named Reardon, between 16 and 18 years of age, was yesterday brough before Messrs. Dowling and Wingate by Serjeant Hodge, who had received her into custody from Mrs. Tighe, of the Queen's Arms, South Head Road for  having stolen 12s. in silver, a veil valued at 6d., and a pair of gloves valued at 6d., her property. The money and the articles were found by Mrs. Tighe under the prisoner's bed during her absence, but another person occupied part of the same room. Mrs. Tighe could not swear that the money had been stolen from her, but positively identified the gloves and veil. The Bench ordered the young woman to give security for her good behaviour, which was at once entered into by a relative, and she was discharged.
