Vagabond

vagabond

One who wanders from place to place, having no fixed dwelling, or not abiding in it, and usually without the means of honest livelihood; a vagrant; a tramp; hence, a worthless person; a rascal. A fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be. (gen. Iv. 12)

In english and American law, vagabond is used in bad sense, denoting one who is without a home; a strolling, idle, worthless person. Vagabonds are described in old English statutes as such as wake on the night and sleep on the day, and haunt customable taverns and alehouses, and routs about; and no man wot from whence they came, nor whither they go. In American law, the term vagrant is employed in the same sense. Cf rogue.

Cloning

if only one reatriction cut site then if you prep the plasmid and use the enzyme you will get a single linear band of your plasmid the other prep will not. And you can compare the size of the band with a molecular weight marker, you will then know if you have an insert or not.
