Constable Cowie deposed, that the previous evening he went to the residence of accused, and asked him his proper name, and he replied "James Williams." Asked if he knew a brickmaker named James Walker in the district, and he replied he did not. He said, in reply to a question, that he might have gone by that name in Sydney. Told him he had a warrant for the arrest of James Walker, and believed him to be the man. Read him the warrent issued from Sydney, charging him with having, on the 1st February, 1882, married Clara Jane Riley, his former wife-Mary Hannah Walker, being then living. He said there was a mistake somewhere, that he was not the person. From the description given of James Walker, believe accused to be that person. He was remanded to Sydney to be dealt with. Bail was objected to by the police, and it was not granted."
