Corn being titheable of common right in the sheaf, it is not competent ( or the farmer, without a custom, after a general notice to the parson that he should be- gin to reap on a ccrtain day, or as soon after as the weather would permit; ( and in fact the reaping con- tinued for about a fortnight) but before tithing, to put all the sheaves when bound immediately into large shocks or riders, consisting of 8 sheaves set up on their ends against each other, with two covering sheaves placed roofwise on the top, for the purpose of protecting the whole against bad weather ; from which shocks the ioth sheaves were afterwards drawn, without taking the rest of the shock to pieces; and the rest of the wheat shocks were removed from the ground in two hours, and the oat shocks in half an hour afterwards : for the parson thereby has no reasonable opportunity of comparing the loth with the other 9 sheaves, as he is entitled to have: but the corn ought to be tithed in the sheaf before it is made up into shocks or riders. THIS was an action on the case brought by the oc- cupier of a farm against the lessee of the great tithes under the warden and fellows of the collegiate church of Manchester, for not taking away the tithes of corn in Gorton parish, alleged to be duly and proper- ly set out. At the trial before Graham B. at Lancaster, it appeared that the plaintiff had crops of wheat and oats in 1809 ; and the wheat and part of the oats being ripe for cutting on the 21st of August, the plaintiff on that day sent notice to the defendant, who lived a mile and a half off, that he should begin to reap on the 24th, or as soon after as the weather would permit; and in fact he began on the 24th, and contiued reaping till the was finished in about a fortnight. The wheat, in sheaves, TERM REPORTS CONTINUED. sheaves : but not only might he have done this when the corn was cut and sheaved, ( of which he had notice,) and before the sheaves were put into riders, and also again when notice was given of tithing it, preparatory to the nine parts being housed ; but the comparison might also have been made after the tenth sheaf was drawn from the rider , and while the other nine remain- ed together in it : at least it was a question which ought to have been left to the jury, whether the comparison could properly have been made in that state. [ le Blanc J. if the farmer gave the parson reasonable notice of tithing the corn while in the sheaf in the first instance, there would be no objection to his afterwards shocking his own nine parts till it was convenient to house it.] There was nothing to prevent the lessee of the parson from attending upon the notice given on the 21st of August for the 24th. [ Bayley J. That was not a notice to tithe, but only to begin to cut the corn on the : 4th, if the weather suited. The farmer and not the parson is to set out the tithe. The notice to tithe was given while the sheaves were in riders ; and the learned Judge gave his opinion against the mode of tithing adopted by taking the tenth sheaf out of the rider, without any op- portunity given to the parson's lessee of comparing it with the other nine.] All the ten sheaves in the rider arc visible on the outside, and the witnesses swore that one of them was taken fairly and indiscriminately from each heap. Tithing by the rider would certainly be bad, because the residue left untithed would be so much the larger: so that unless this mode of tithing may be adopted, the benefit of shocking the corn in the first in- stance to save it from the weather must be lost to the farmer, unless he incurs the additional labour and ex- pence of taking the riders to pieces when it is tithed, and putting it together again afterwards.

Part of the wheat was fit for housing on the 14th of September; and the defendant not having sent any person to see the riders set up, nor the tithe set out, the plaintiff sent his servant 0n that day to set out the tithes; and he took one sheaf from each rider, and set up every two sheaves so taken one against the other; and if there were an odd tenth sheaf at the end of the row, he put three together. He tithed he swore, fairly and impartially, taking each rider, without damage parfon had no opportunity of compartn; the sheaves, as fheaves. northern << unt. es, was more catching and fofuTiern pal • his tenth sheaf with the other nine ] He had the same opportunity of making the comparison as the farmer's servant who ti- thed it, and who sometimes took one of the covering sheaves in turn, [ le Blanc J. The question is, whether the farmer had any right to make use of the parson's sheaf for any purpose of his own. It might as well be said of hay, that it is more convenient to put it into large shocks and tithe it from thence, because it is thereby better preserved : but has the farmer a right to do so, when by law it is titheable in grass cocks ?] It is a question of general importance ; for if this mode of tithing be illegal, it will affect the practice of good husbandry in the northern counties. ( To be continued.) POLICE OFFICE, LIVERPOOL, December 8, 1812. OFFENDER ABSCONDED. MICHAEL CHANCEY, charged with having com- mitted various Felonies in Liverpool and its vi- cinity, has absConded from Justice. This habitual offender is an Irishman not more than 22 or 23 years of age, is remarkable by being about 6 feet hi height, has a fresh and fair complexion, light hair, a recent cut 0n the left side of his forehead ; stoops in the shoulders, large hands and feet, often associates with Journeymen Shoe- makers in their working rooms ; and had on when he fled from Justice, a brown coat, striped waistcoat, corded breeches, and coarse worsted stockings.— His coat is torn in one of the flaps. Any Person who will give Information to Mr. Staf- ford, Chief Clerk at the Public Office, Bow Street, London; or to Mr. Miller, Superintendent of the Po- lice at Liverpool, that shall be the Means or the said Michael Chancey being apprehended, shall be rewarded with TEN GUINEAS. . THE REWARDS GRANTED FOR APPREHENDING DESERTERS, Which are particularly stated at the End of the List of Deserters on the other Side ; are as follows, viz. THE Sum of Forty Shillings will be allowed for the Apprehending of every Deserter from the REGu- LARS, whether advertised or not ; and will be payable by an ORDER of the MAGISTRATE upon the AGENT or DISTRICT PAYMASTER : And the Sum of Twenty Shillings will be paid in like manner, for the Appre- hension of each Deserter from the MILITIA : Which ORDERS will be issued from the WAR OFFICE, as soon as it shall be ascertained that the Persons Apprehended are really Deserters. Note.— The Sum of Forty Shil lings is distinct from, and in Addition to the Ordinary Reward of Twenty Shillings allowed by Law for the Ap- prehension of Deserters from the REGULARS: And the Sum of Twenty Shillings, is also over and above the For- ty Shillings already allowed by Law for the Apprehen- sion of Deserters from the MIlITIA.—( viz. Twenty Shillings by the 109th Clause of the 42 Geo. Ill, Cap. 90 : And Twenty Shillings by the Mutiny Act :) which Rewards being allowed by Act of Parliament, are of course to be obtained in the usual Manner. per most or thatching sheaves the tithe sheaves, the rest of the wheat was carried away to be housed in about two hours afterwards The like was done by the oats on the 22d ot September ; and of these, after the tithe sheaves were thus separated, the remainder was carried off in half an hour. The defend- ant, objecting to this mode of tithing, never look the tithes away. And the principle question made at the tithes was, whether this were a legal mode of setting out the tithes that is whether the tithing ought to have been when the corn was bound in sheaves, and before those sheaves were set up in riders; or whether, in the where it was urged that the weather and uncertain than in the middle . t the kingdom, the farmer might lawfully put the sheaves into riders immediately, with- out giving notice of or waiting for the tithing in that stage of the process, and afterwards draw out the tenth sheaf in the manner proved in this case, without first taking the rider down altogether. Upon this point the learned Judge was of opinion, that this was not a legal mode of tithing corn at common law. Corn, he said, was regularly titheable in the sheaf, and the tithe must be set out before it is put into large shocks or riders; though mutual convenience may have introduced a very general practice in the north, of first putting the sheaves into riders. But where such a course of husbandry pre- vailed, he doubted whether the corn could fairly be tithed except by the tenth rider. For where the tenth sheaf is set out, the parson has an opportunity of com- paring it with the other nine sheaves : but if the sheaves be first put into riders, there is no mode of comparison but of the tenth rider with the other nine riders ; for the riders are only taken to pieces when the corn is rea- dy to be carried, and that must depend 0n the weather, or on the judgment of the farmer. The parson in that case must follow the teams ot every farmer who is car- rying his corn, and perpetual disputes must arise in the of which, or T1 STOLEN OR STRAYED.

DESERTER AND OFFENDER, FROM THE FIRST REGIMENT OF LANCASHIRE MILITIA. JOHN STEWART, Serjeant of Garstang, Lancashire by Trade a Flax Dresser; 5 feet 4 inches high, aged 35, small person, very erect, round head, light brown hair, small face, grey eyes, speaks rather hastily ; was a Pay Serjeant, and took with him about Fifty Pounds of the Company's Money ; put on a black Coat, and light colored Pantaloons. Went August 26, from a party at Dunbar, towards Carlisle, but was since seen passing through Leeds on his way to London. Whoever will apprehend the said Deserter will re- ceive FIVE GUINEAS Reward, by applying to the Agent of the Regiment, over and above the Established Al- lowance for apprehending Deserters. , vered without reference, to any custom in the particular parish : and therefore the learned Judge, in answer to an intimation of such a custom by the, plaintiff's coun- sel, said, that if they had any evidence to offer of it he would hear it; though he added, that he should require strong evidence to establish such a custom. But the plaintiff not being prepared to prove more than that the defendant had, in several instances before this, taken his tithes according to this mode of setting them out, he thought that this evidence would not make any dif- ference in the case ; and the plaintiff was thereupon non- suited. Park and littledale now shewed cause against a rule which had been obtained in the last term for setting They said, that there was no ground in the manner here admitted that this was the attempted : though they usual manner of saving corn, according t0 good husban- dry in the northern counties, especially of late years, in order to preserve it better from inclement weather till it was convenient to house it. Besides, both parties agreed at the trial, that it was titheable by the tenth sheaf, and not by the tenth rider. But the lessee of the tithes insisted, that he ought to have an opportunity, when the tithe is set out, of comparing the tenth sheaf with the other nine sheaves, which he could not do by the mode of tithing adopted in this instance, that of taking the tenth sheaf from out of the standing rider, without first taking it to pieces. Neither can it be con- tended, that the parson is bound to follow the reapers, and be prepared to take his tenth sheaf immediately af- ter the corn is made up into sheaves, and before they are put into riders. The notice too of setting out the tithes was unreasonably short before the corn was carried on the ground ; as to the wheat, not exceeding two hours ; as to the oats, only half an hour : the defend- ant living a mile and a half off. In Halliwell v. Trap- pes, Chambre J. said, that the parson had a right to have the whole ten sheaves pulled down out of the shock or rider, in order to examine whether his tenth sheaf were fairly taken, by comparing it with the others, [ Le Blanc J observed upon a case which was there cited as deci- ded by him, that if shock were not printed by mistake for sheaf, and sheaf for shock in the report, which he believed was the case, the opinion there said to have been expressed by him was not defensible: for it was clear, the corn was titheable of common right in the sheaf and n0t in the shock ] They also referred to Franlin v. Gooch, and Tennant v. Stubbing. Cochell Serjt., Topping and Richardson, contra, contend- ed that this mode of tithing was for the benefit of the parson as well as of the former. Putting the sheaves immediately into riders is the best method of saving the corn, and is on that account very generally practised throughout the northern counties. The objection made was, that the parson or his lessee had no opportunity in this way of comparing the tenth with the other nine POLICE OFFICE, HATTON GARDEN. TWENTY GUINEAS REWARD.

M& it ADMIRALTY SESSIONS, December 16, 1812. Before Sir William Scott, Lord Ellenborough, and Mr. Baron Thompson. HE Marquis of Sligo was tried on an indictment comprising twenty- eight counts ; the first of which charged him with a, misdemeanor tn having received 0n board his ship the Pylades, lying at Malta, 011 the 15th of May, 1810 ; one William Eldon, a seaman, be- longing to His Majesty's Ship Montague, while in a state of intoxication, whom he harboured and concealed. The second count charged the defendant with unlaw- fully and disloyally enticing and inciting the said El- don to desert from His Majesty's service. the third count set fourth, the said Eldon, having so deserted to have been received on board the defendant's ship, and the defendant cognisant of the fact of the desertion. There were several counts alleging similar facts in reference to other seamen; and the last charged the defendant with assault and false imprisonment. The facts were proved and the defendant was found guilty on all the Counts except the last. The next day he was sentenced to pay a fine of 5000I to the King and to be imprisoned four months in Newgate. Thomas Younghusband was capitally conviced of an adherence to the King's enemies, serving in a French Privateer. John Bruce was indicted for the wilful murder of John Dean, at Milford, Haven, on the High Seas. This is the cruel case of murder of the boy in passing with the offender in a boat, by cutting his throat and throwing him overboard, as mentioned in a former Hue and Cry. The facts were proved and the prisoner ad- mitted them to be true ; he was therefore sentenced to be hanged on Saturday, but respited fill Monday, and further respited for 14 days. C. F. Palmer, and S. Telling, with Wright, not in custody, were indicted on the i8, h instant, for mutiny, and the murder of the captain, mate, and two black seamen, on board the Adventure, a South- sea Whaler. The particulars of the evidence were con- firmed by the admission of the prisoners; who were both found guilty, sentenced to be hanged on the aid. and have been executed accordingly. COURT OF KING'S BENCH, December 8, 1812. The King, v. Collin and 84 Others. THIS was an Indictment against Journeymen Cur- riers for a conspiraey to procure an advance of wages ; but it appearing that they had all returned to their Master's service, the Solicitor General for the Profecution, with the sanction of Lord Ellenborough, declined to proceed : leaving however, the Indictment to hang over the defendants heads in terroram.

Thomas Smith, detected in stealing a number of glasses out of gentlemen's carriages, which it is believed he has made a practice of for some time, has been ex- amined at the Public Office, Bow- street, and fully com- mitted for trial. MoSes Samuels, a jew, or barabbasite, was committed for want of bail, himself in 2ool, and two others in 1ool, each, on a charge of buying guineas at 26s. each. The 2nd of January next, is the day appointed by Mr Baron Thompson and Mr. Justice Le Blanc, for opening the special commission at York. Junes Calver, alias John Carter, alias William Hay- wood, alias William Howorth, alias Smith, has been apprehended at Manchester, as an accomplice with two other persons in custody, in the murder of two females near Market Drayton, Salop; some months since. This man is about 5 feet i inches high, has a peculiar cast in his eyes ; and on the right wrist near the thumb, M. C. marked in blue, and a blue ring mark round the little finger stained in the skin. Says he has been in the navy, and a prisoner at Toulon. Seems apprehensive of serious charges being brought against him. A smart little man, well dressed, about 20 years of age, has been committed to Dover gaol on several char- ges of swindling. He had several letters of credit, a number of the sham fleet notes, and other ficticious notes ; and appears to have been travelling 0n the Western roads, by the title of Lord Onslow, and Lieut. Onslow. Serjeant John Langhorn, a paymaster of the Cavalry Depot, who had absconded wiih money with which he had been entrusted ; has been apprehended at Derby, by Taunton, a Bow- street Officer, and brought back to London. Smith and Whittaker who had been convicted at the Old Bailey Sessions, on a charge of Consipiring to de fraud their creditors, & c. were made to stand one hour on the pillory, in Cornhill, 0n the 17th instant, pur suant to their sentence. John Shipman was executed on the 17th instant, in the Old Bailey, before Newgate, pursuant to his Sen- tence, for forgery. A leather bag, containing Sundry parcels of Country Bank Notes, from Bath, was stolen from the Bristol Mail Coach, between Bath and London, on the 11th instant ; to the amount of near two thousand pounds. A parcel containing Country Bank Notes from Bris- tol, to the amount of near eleven hundred pounds, was stolen from the Swan with Two Necks, Lad Lane, o the 4: 11 instant. The dwelling house of Miss Jenkins, at Stone, Glou- cestershire, was feloniously broken open on the 2d in stant, and Several articles of silver plate stolen therein, viz.-- Two bed candlesticks, a dozen forks, a dozen ta- ble spoons with crest " a camel's head in a crown;" other large spoons, 4. Salts, a dozen desert Spoons, a Soup Spoon, 3 cans, several castors, a salver, about 2+ tea Spoons, and a large punch ladle. Many of the spoons bear " a dexter hand with a dart." Also, a set of buff- colored figured window curtains not finished, and a writing desk, with " S. Jenkins, Oxford," inscri- bed 0n a Silver plate 0n the desk; and a gold Seal, a pair of scissars, and ten guineas, some suspicion is en- tertained of two men seen in a light cart drawn by a good- looking bay horse, between Bristol and Gloucester the next morning, going very hard, and who had 2 black dogs with them, but who crossed off towards Kings- wood. Nine licenced Postmasters have been convicted and fined in the mitigated penalties of five pounds each, and costs, at the instance of Farmer's General of His Majesty's Post Horse, Post Horse Duties for the Bath district ; for not attending the collector on the last day of collection, pursuant to notice, to pass their accounts upon oath, and pay the amount of the duty thereon, which they had received, A few days Since, Charles Henry, a young man of very genteel appearance, was charged before Mr. Gra- ham, at the Police Office, Bow Street, with unlawfully and felonioufly marrying Miss Charlotte Wyatt, the POLICE NEWS CONTINUED. By a letter received on the 10th Inst. from Shrews- bury, we are informed of fresh breaches of parole, by French Officers. It is stated that the succeeding morn- ing, the Town of Shrewsbury was surprised by the ap- prehension of the French General Le Brun, and his Aide de Camp, who had been stationed at Welch Pool, on their parole and were making their escape, assisted by the son of a well known Kentish smuggler and others. All the parties were secured and are now safely lodged in Shrewsbury Gaol. Between the scoundrels who con- duct, and the scoundrels who are to be conducted out of this kingdom 0n occasions of this kind, we have not much to say, as they frequently reward each other, ex- cept that from common motives of humanity we take the liberty of hinting to the French Officers, that it is always lucky for them whenever they are arrested in their flight before they quit the land; for as the wretch- es who convey them are guilty of a felonious offence, there is no question that should they be pursued at sea by an English Cruizer, these felons would, to avoid de- tection, throw their unhappy passengers overboard; which we have no doubt has been the case; and thus have they miserably perished at the hour they were flat- tering themselves with entire escape. OFFICERS WIDOWS. AN Order has been issued from the War Department abolishing the former practice of transferring the payment of Widow's of Officers from Great Britain to Ireland, and vice versa, upon the removal of Regiments from one establishment to the other ; and directing that in future every widow shall receive payment of the pen- sion in the country in which she resides.

He is 5 feet 6 inches in height, about 24 years of age, swarthy complexion, carries his hands much in his pockets when walking, and . wore a blue coat, and fustian trowsers. Two desperadoes stopped and robbed the driver of a waggon on the 27th instant, between Walton and Frox- field, of the sum of 15I. ; one of them was thin, about j feet 6 inches in height, about 24 years old, light com- plexion, pale face, and had with him a lappeled great coat to button, a short blue jacket, dark breeches and a light colored hat. The other appeared to be about 40 years of age, large, stout and bony, large rough beard, sandy whiskers ; and wore a lightish colored great coat. This man is supposed to be one White, formerly of East Garston, ( commonly called Argadon,) near Hunger- ford. These two men with a confederate, are suspected to have robbed a house at Hungerford newton, 0n the i8th of November last. These offenders were very ac- tively pursued after the robbery of the waggoner but unsuccessfully. It is believed they travel from place to place with the view to commit robberies, but are not soon sucpected in the character of harmless travellers. Christopher Jenkinson, charged with having stolen a mare, at Ballyedon, Wexford, Ireland, since recovered, has fled from justice. He is about 28 years of age, j ft. 8 in. in height, stout make, fair complexion, light brown hair, brown eyes, large and rather red whiskers, by trade a tanner and currier; and absconded the 9th of November last.

The roads between Portsmouth and Bishop's Wal- tham, have, for some time part, been infested by an Highwayman of no common description : He is re- presented as a fine looking fellow, near 6 feet in height, and always mounted on a Blood Horse. Mr. Hough- ton, of Portsea, unfortunately fell in with this bold free- booter, on the evening of the 20th instant, between Porchester and Fareham, when he dismounted, pre- sented a pistol t0 Mr. H's breast, demanded his money, . and took thirty pounds in notes. this offender has been sought with diligence, but has yet escaped the . Country Police. daughter of Captain Wyatt, of Ealing, M. P. for Sud- bury, be having at the time another wife living at Sligo, in Ireland. The prisoner in his defence, said that he did not consider the union in Ireland as a legal mar- riage, it being solemnized in a room according to the rights of the Romish Church; he was committed for trial, and the parties bound over to prosecute. C. Wheeler, a well known character, has been ex- amined at the Public Office, Bow Street, 0n a charge of cheating a farmer of 59I. for the share of a cross, picked up by him in the farmer's presence ; and 2I. from another person 0n a day previous, in another part of the town. This trick is so generally known, that they must be ignorant indeed, who can be deceived by it. When Religion and Virtue hold the reins over Vice and ' Avarice, persons are not liable to be deluded by such temptation. A young foreigner of very suspicious appearance, was committed to Cork Gaol, 0n the 25 ult. on charges of having defrauded several persons in business of dif- ferent goods there. He lately arrived at Cork in a ves- sel from Liverpool without any money whatever, repre- sents himself as a native ot Gibralter going out with a venture to Buenos Ayres, and speaks French remarka- bly well. The seaman so often spoken of as having confessed himself to have been concerned in the late murders in Ratcliff Highway, with several others, proves, as was suspected, to be a Lunatic. A gang of maranders taking advantage of the late dis- orders in the Counties, have recently formed themselves into a body to the number of about 12, who go about to houses in the night, putting the inhabitants in fear and robbing them of money and portable articles. to root up these criminals, it is understood armed bodies of the Police are tracing them, who are able to surround and secure them should they meet with them in their rounds of depredation. HORSES STOLEN. ABAY HORSE was taken from Croydon, about the 20th instant, 8 years old, 14 hands high, broken knees, wrung on the shoulders, switch tail, hollow back, never cropt. A bay mare was stolen from Tooting, Surrey, on the 18th instant ; about 15 hand-, high, black legs, mane and tail, in good condition, by a man of the name of Thomas Thompson, formerly of Smithfield, London ; late of Tooting. He is about 5 feet 7 inches high, rather thin, dark complexion, round face, large black whiskers, and lately a bailiff's follower. It is supposed that Thompson is connected with Charles Hardwick, late of Tooting, and who was lately apprehended and taken before the Magistrates of the Police Office, South- wark on suspicion of stealing a pony.
