The Deaf And Dumb Both Heard And Spoke

Vincent Ogden was recently charged with begging, under the pretence of

being deaf and dumb, at Launceston. P. C. Barrett said that he saw the

prisoner in the butcher's market. He was making signs, and pretending to

be deaf and dumb. He took him into custody, and after they arrived at

the police station asked him his name; he made no reply at first, but

subsequently said he was called William Ogden, that he was a native of

Manchester, and had just come out of Bodmin Gaol. Committed for two

months, with hard labour.
