His Bovaj,' Highness was immediately attended by fiis Grace the Archbishop of this p. ovince, Ivtrl Fitzwilliam, and other distinguished personages. The band of the - tth Royal Irish Dragoon Guards paraded in front of the Hotel, and played several military airs. The Prince was repeatedly cheered by the loud huzzas of the populace, on shewing himself at the windows of tlie Hotel, and i; was with tile greatest difficulty Ids Royal Highness approached to his carriage, as the hall and passages,. leading from the Prince's apartments, in this spacious and commodious Hotel, were crowded to excess with gentlemen, and clcgantlv dressed females, all anxious to testifytheir reijiect and affection. At one o'clock, his lloval Highness, attended by the Archbishop, went in his carriage to view our magnificent Cathedral, His Royal Highness on entering the great west door, was Saluted by the organ striking up " God tftve the King " and passed through a thronged line of anxious spectators to the inspection of the choir, cllapter- house, and other parts of that noble structure, :-— After viewing the Cathedral, the Prince and suite partook of a cold collation at the Dertnerv. That active and intelligent Magistrate, 1 Hall Plunier, Esq. h id the honour of being introduced to the. Prince, and, accompanied hy the Archbishop and Earl Fitzwilliam, proceeded to shew to his Royal Highness and his suite, our County Gaol; with the cleanliness, comfort, and general appearance of which, his Royal Highness and the whole of the company expressed their pnqualitied approbation. At a quarter past two, the Lord Mayor, and other members of the Corporation, waited upon his Royal Highness to congratulate him upon his arrival in this ancient city. His Royal Highness was upon the Course in the afternoon during the running of the horses; and afterwards dined with his Grace the Archbishop, at hi3 Palace, at Bishopthorpe.

C O U R T OF CTTANCKIIY, AUG. GORDON V. GORDON. The l l t t n OitANcki. i. on gave his final judgment in this important and- jong litigated case this day. For the benefit of our readers we shall just recapitulate the circumstances. The plaintitTMr. Harry Gordon, and the defendant, Mr. James Gordon, who is a barrister at tlie Chancery Bar, are the sons of iVlr.. Henry- Gordon, a gentleman of vast property in Scotland., and the island of Grenada, and a long time deceased. At his demise, in 178?, he left the greater part of his property to his eldest soil, Peter, tile brother ot the parties, with remainder to Harry, the second eldest brother. Peter, however, died without the knowledge of liis father, before the wilt was made, and leaving iig- i » ue, the property devolved to Harrv. This gentleman, " who had been an officer in the East India service, returned to England in 1790, without anticipating- that there wbuld be any obstacle to his immediate possession of the property do rised to him. Tiie^ defeiidant, however, informed him that there was pretty strong ground for believing that lie ( Ilarry) was an illegitimate child, and that, therefore, tlie property reverted to him ( James) as the eldest legitimate child. Focorroborate this statement, he produced several documents, and, among the rest, a will of their late father, executed at a much earlier period tlian that under which Harry was recognized as the legitimate child of his father. In this will it was specitled ihat Peter and Harry were both illegitimate, the testator declaring that he was not married until immediately before the birth of his third cliild, the defendant, James, at which time their marriage was publicly sylcmnized. The blotters upon consulting with each other, and being liatwrally jealous of the reputation ot the family, resolved upon this expedient, that I Tarry, notwithstanding his illegitimacy, should still hold the property bequeathed to him. hut securing to James certain annual payments out of it, as a consideration for the sacrificewhich he had made to the character of his family All agreement, to this effect had been made in 17B0, and another" ilftso:;.' lri' the-' year 1809, the plaintiff came tothe • knowledge ^ fffpf^ Uff^ i* fU that a private ccreinqny took - place between his parents* ill th'e vear 1756. a term of seven years " tiel'dfe the ptibfrc^ reWUlty; and as the registry at Philadelphia ' declared : hi, m, tcj. have been bofii'in 1761, there could be no longer any doiibt o'f'hfslegitSWaiejJ: ' lie'accordingly filed a bill in 1809, ;, iti ' bhl< S- W:* iutiul:' tbe, 3gfe( jrtpiU « : between liiro aud his brother, and to. compel James to refund the several payments wliicll had ' beenmade hiin- by'virtue of these agreements.

His Eord^ hipr a| iec going overall the facts of the case, which have been already detailed, said his view of the case was this; thai he was fully persuaded Sir. Jafncs Gordon knew quite well that U » ure was a. private marriage, aud yet he dpalt with his brother a$ if the public' niirriage had been'die only- ohb iii- question.' Mr. Gordon swears he knew- not anv such private . njiprrupe had taken place, but Jie ( Lord Chancellor) would not lie justified in believing that such was the fact, and he Was s « i> ry;:; t « lay; SOJ " I may Le justified( aiid . his ^ irdship). in believing Mr. J.

' RUSSELL, ' fills was a prosecution for publishing one- of Hone's Parodies about IS months ago, and was put off from the last assize to the present. ( It will be recollected bv our readers that Hone hftd beeu tried for throe dilfere'nt parodies of the same nature in London, and acquitted). At defendant's request, before the trial Commenced, the witnesses were withdrawn from the Codrt. Mr. Pearson, of London, was defendant's solicitor. Wooler and Carlisle were also stated to !> e in Court. Mr. CLARKE opened the case for the Crown, in which he observed that defendant was charged with intending to bring the holy Litany into contempt, and to ex; itc impiety and immorality, by ridiculing it in a certain parody, called the Political Litany, in whi<; h arc contained profane remarks on the divine service, & c. C, L. Barber, and a person named Harley proved that thoyhad bought the publication of the defendant. Mr, Mott, the Registrar of the Dean and Chapter of Lichfield, produced the Act of Uniformity from the Archives of the Chapter, in order to compare the Litany as by law established, with the Parodv, Some trivial objections vvero made. The Defendant then addressed the Court, in a speech occupying a considerable Space of time, and with great flue, icy, in extenuation of his conduct. He said that he otted the present persecution to the ingratitude of a man he had befriended, and that his arrest was founded in spiteful motives. The original Printer had been acquitted bv a London Jury ; and it could not be guilt in the accessary, which was not guilt in the principal. The publication was merely laughable ;— it was a popular way of shewing popular sentiments. His Lordship, in his chargc to the Jury, observed, that in his opinion the Parody was a Libel; and the Jury found a verdict— Guilty. The defendant will remain upon bail until next term, when he will lie brought tip for judgment in the Court of King's Bench. B O D M I N ( Coin, WALL) TCESBAV, AUG. 10. Thomas Ilyncs was put to the bar charged With uttering a seditious libel. He was a man of wretched appearance, who owned that he could scarcely read ; rather wild in his look and manner, and, en coming into Court, manifested a refractory disposition, like alf other seditionmongers and dealers in the Rights of Man. He said he | iad committed no crime and knew nothing about pleading. Being asked if he wished to put o f f his trial till next A s - sizes, he replied that he had no bail, and after some grumbling he consented t o I> c then tried rather than return to gaoi. Mr. SELVVYN, Counsel for the prosecution, then opened the pleadings it| a speech which rivctted the attention of the whole Court. He stated that this prosecution was instituted at the desire o f t h e Magistrates of Penryn, where the offence had been committed ; and they had acted with wisdom and becoming energy on the occasion. Wljilc other districts Of the kingdom were agitated by seditious publications,. w ithout number, the peace of the County of Cornwall had not been disturbed, perha[ « because those vile productions had not yet been circulated with impunity among its Ioval inhabitants ; and it was to protect thein from so impure a contagion, that the Magistrates deemed it a duty incuinbcnt on them to put a stop to the evil at once, by bringing the present delinquent to justice. It is not given tu man to loak into the course of time, aud to predict what events may happen at a future period: but if such proceeding* be toltrated, and sedition he allowed to stalk openly through the country iq the persons of such top| s as the prisoner at the bar— if Juries be not alive to the prescrration of ilic best interests of society, by upholding the li^ Ws anf exorcising a necessary severity upon these illiterate agepts of guilty authors, who keep in the back- grqund, reap the profits and leave them to their fate— there will be an end of all order and. government, and revolution must inevitably ensue. This Is'tne first case in the County of Corhwall that has been submitted tit a British Jury, and too imich prai^ ecanuot be given to the Magistrates of Penryn for setting so landiible an example, which will no doubt be followed, should ail Occasion offer, by those u( evefy town in the County. The pamptilct of which he had' thin day tq complain was not written in the free spirit of fair discussiqu, but was a malignant libel on the Church, the Clergy, the^ Go'. eminent, and even on the Koyal Family itself, and calculated to excite animosity against all that is gotfd br great in the Empire. John Ureu, the younger, saw the prisoner oil . Monday, the SSth of June last, in the streets of Penryn, crying various pamphlets for sale. He purchased one, paid a penny for it, marked it with his name and kept by him ever since. Here the copy was put in and read, but we forbear, for obvious reasons, to quote a singlet, sentence from so infamous a publication. The prisoner offered in his defence a licence signed by the Commissioners of Hawkers and Pedlars, which, as- be contended, authorised him to sell any kind of publication in towns and from house to house, iu any part of the kingdom, provided the primer's name were attached. .- The Learned Judge addressed the Jury in. a mewt eloquent speech, in which he explained the law of th£. c » sef: « lidj « tiiuhati. i caily touched upon the disorders which at this jtisjuieat distract various parts of the kingdom, and which he said, frad b> vn ed atid gfeatlT aggravated by such misehicw » t » l| i i> dpt$* ti_ u » l* aiid the mwtlisHflkPn to disseminate them Meeting Irk our List " Journal, and on tlie Bar of Fu'uiicr. tion, v.' c received from Mr. Hunt the following eoniKiit nication :—^ P R O C L A M A T I O N T H E T H t f t D.

MEh',—^ VS. yoa have done me the honour to inviu ttic again to presiileat a public Meeting to be heW at MaucheAler, oa Monday, tbe « tb tnst. in order to promote the cause of real Reform. ( I « rmit ine to address a few lines to you preparatory to mv meeting you on that day, through the medium of that truly independent and patriotic newspaper, the Manchester Observer, r. tuch is not only the most impartial but Which is the only Newspaper In England, that 1 know, honestly devoted to such a lle.' brm as would give to tbe |> eopl* their whole rightci through tbe means of Annua! Parliaments, Universal Suffrage, and Election by i a l l o t. In common with everyreal friend onibert. v, 1 have witnessed with great pleasure the numerous meetings of'the bravt Reformers of Lancashire, Cheshire, and Yorkshire, conducted with so much firmness and ability, and ending so peaceably and orderly, to tbe great discomfiture of the Boroughtiiongers. The Reformers of the Metropolis, however tardy, have at length held their mveiing and declared their union with the Reformers c. t" the North, nonwithstanding the denunciations of tile Prince Regent; and tbe infamous intrigues of the various factions cf shau'i Reformers j notwithstanding Ixmdon aud Westminster have beyp so long iyundated. The same infamous cowardly threats and hose acts will be resorteiLto, ill order to deter the Retormers from Meeting it Manchester on the 9th instant, as were put in practice with to much malignancy in tlie Metropolis, 111 order to prevent ths tpeetiitgin Smitbfield; and I have no doubt but they will be trailed by you with the same contempt, and that their bloqdy- minded l « i tentions will be frustrated by the same determined coolness to do your duty on the day of meeting as becomes men struggling to recover their long lost rights. Let tftc officers of Police uieet and enter into resolutions tu arm their miuiqns and partiiaas; be k so— let tbe Magistrates, with Mr. \ Vilbraham Rootle, and Mr. Isaac Blackburn at their head, in « vt and forward their handj works to the Secretary of State; be it so, we tlie Reformers bar* no objection;— if 130,000 regulars be not enough to maintain thu system by force, let them arm themselves; be it so, we have tio Objection. But this shall pot deter us the Keforatem from meeting also ; neither shall bills of iudietment nor packed ipecisl jurias deter us, when met, from expressing our sentiment* UJXJU tb « cruel and bloody acis of the Burouglunongers; and dunattdiiur the restoration of our rights as men, as freemen, ucd as Kiigli » t » . men. in consequence of the absence of Sba- n lteformei ri friHM tlie Meeting in Smithfleld, it was conducted with perfect order and decorum; and I have great pleasure in anticipating tlie « roa results frurn tile « « ine causes ou your Meeting, to the no - muli mortification of all those who, I have no duutit, are doing evorr thing in their power lo treats disorder, riot, apd tjloodsbed. !• I am Ueiitleuieii, j'/ ur obedient humble .

The Magistrates stared with astonishment at the man they had issued no warrant for his apprehension, and therefore could not at first comprehend the object of the Orator's extra • ordinary visit. When, however, they did Understand it, they informed the Orator that he had' been deceived, and that no such measure, as he appeared to fear, waa theq » « agitation. Hunt, after receiving this intelligence, which be did with the utmost composure, bowed to the Magistrates, left the Court- house, and rejoined his friend and companion, who was at the dqqr waiting for li; ui.

The place of meeting is said to lie Whitepioss, a moor or. se ten miles from Muncheetcr. It is impossible to depict to you the state of trepidation and alarm in which the threatened meeting of to morrow has placed the inhabitants of Manchester. They look forward to nothing else but a general scene of rwt and disturbance. A large placard was issued last night, announcing, that a grand dinner would take place after the speccfufkattone of to- morrow, in which the Reformers publicly avow, that they will abstain frqm the use of wine and spirits, in order to injure, as much ;( s ji| them lies, tlie revenue of the country. They sav, that it is the first step in the new system which they have adopted against the Boroughmunojcrs: they intend in future to sfwtain from all hijjlitaxed commodities.

Eight o'clock this morning was the time fixed for this trial; but < o great was the curiosity to see it, that soon after V every corner mto which a human being could squeeze himself was occupied. At 8 precisely the trial began. It was obviously of a nature to excite the greatest interest. We recollect an extraordinary trial for muMer'at Lancaster, two years ago, when a father, his brother, his son, and another, were convicted of the murder of two helpless females, who were left in a house where considerable property was to be found, and were put to death only as a security • gainst the detection of the robbers. This case was remarkably similar to that of the Ashcrofts. Hut here only one unhappy woman was i: i the house. To her murder, however, was added the \ urum- f of the house, iu order to conceal both the robbeiy and the mu. ier. , In this case too, as in that of the Ashcrofts, the evi clence against the prisoners was entirely circumstantial. But the difB ulty was much increased in the present case by the lapse of four years since the atrocious deed had been perpetrated. John Eden, aged 28, James Wolfe, aged 56, and Geo. Wolfe, his son, aged thirty, were charged with the wilful murder of Isabella Yo'. mg, at Herrington, on the night of the' 28th Aug. 1815. Mr. WILLIAMS opened the case to the Jury. The nature of the .. imrge against the prisoners could not fail to have engaged tieir attention. Any attempt on his part to excite their attention would be improper, therefore, as being superfluous. But it • juld bo improper tor another reason: any thing of exaggeration or inflammation which might withdraw their minds from c t and deliberate investigation would be most improper.— • lit 1 .•"• ro was in this case wherewithal to rouse their feelings, if he were to dwell upon the circumstances. A young woman, • . : • > and defenceless, was the person brutally butchered; the' iio-.' M was set in flames to conceal her blood. Such -,•.•„, circumstances of enormity and atrocity attending the , t « e they were to inquire into. But their great business was -. o inquire who were the persons that had perpetrated this iro- jious. deed. He would shortly state the outline of the evidence to be laid before them. Isabella Young had been I the service of Miss Jane Smith, siuce Lady P - at, a lady ' j'. jroat opulence, and i f singular habits and manners. On- ,. ner angular habits was to have only one female servant in her hoiiH". Miss Smith had been from home for a week previously to the t. mrOer, and had left Isabella Young in her house at Herringtin, a village 4 or 5 miles from the town of Sunderland. Isabella V org had been alarmed the night before this fatal attempt; she had heard the bar removed from the door, and in consequence solicited a neighbour to sleep with her on the night of the 28th of August, 1815. ller solicitation failed ; but that neighbour. heard her'bolt the door ct 10 o'clock. Another neighbour found her about ev'o o'clock- next morning murdered. The house had been - el lire so; but the lire hail not reached the part where she was at - ho time he was seen and dragged out. That She murder had been •• ororaitted by some persons or other would be proved, therefore, JIKI all controversy. He would now state to them the evi- •" iK.- e which affected the several prisoners. John Eden had been soldier in the Durham militia, who marched into Newcastle on the 2Stb of Aii;-* n::\ the Saturday before this tragedy. It would be'proved that lie was absent from his regiment oh the night of the L' 8; h and the morning of the 29th, and if the Jury would believe the'. v- tnist, they would find that Eden called at that witness's ho- isc on tbe evening of Mondav the 28th, and told him, that hp and two others were going to herrington on a very disagreeable business,, and spoke of Miss Smith's mouldy money. An idea had prevailed that she had accumulated money ; this had excited cupidity; and her ro'ired manner of living; gave hopes of •; r: it'lVinr that cupidity. Eden spoke of her mouldy money, and if the witness should be believed, and he knew no reason why he should, not, they would find him that night upon this very business. Eden had been a keelman. In the evening lie had been ia blue clothes; next morning lie was seen neatly dressed, and :: i-, - s- a bundle, no unimportant circumstance, 12 miles from Newcastle. He had every appearance of having changed his clothes. On one occasion he said he could establish an alibi, and 0 oveth- ; ho was at. Newcastle; there he certainly ought to have SKVC., B:: T ho would be proved by the muster- roll to have been : twent. Now he would proceed to James Wolfe, He had j a farm from Miss Smith, and had fallen in arrear with his i: -. She had become displeased with him, and got rid of bin:. . . would he proved that he had afterwards, on many occasions, said he would be revenged, be was not done with her yet. In addition :'. would be proved, that in December, 1814, on a remarkable ' vir. dv day, when a wall had been thrown down, and killed a ma": i, a circumstance that naturally fastened on the memory, Wolfe. mentioned ton James Shaw the wrongs and injustice done to km by Miss- Smith, aud said that he would be revenged. To Shaw re remarked that'it would- be easy to rob her house. Next is to George Wolfe, he had been remarkably regular in his emplovment, which w a s that of a furrier, at Bishop- Wearmouth; but'on the night of the 28th he was absent, and when he returned < m " morning of the 29th, he was observed to have a black eye, and to have scratches on, his face, as if dene with nails. His first onnt of it was, " I was drunk, and fell in the streets of Sunder- , a r J . " On another occasion he said, one of bis children had been unwell, and he had risen tirget some Water for the child, and hurt 1 : tr « e) f. He was apprehended in Edinburgh, and a pocket- book wa « found with him, which he said he had. got from the family of i:: s w ife six years before. Lady Peat would prove this'' pocketboo! . to have been hers, and to have been ill her dwelling a week betorejtbc murder. Such was the evidence which would be laid before'" them ; they would weigh it with that measured considera- ;: on end that attentive caution which it was their province to exercise ; end they would, he doubted not, Come to such a conclusion as it'i evidence warranted. Mr. HOLT stated be was Counsel for the two Wolfe?. ; r. WILKINSON said he was Counsel for John Eden. J, idtnce- was first given respecting John Eden, r. c Ilowe lived at Herrlngton in the month of August, 1815, a'ri", time Miss Smith's house was set on fire; lived 50 yards 1 V'i the house; knew Isabella Young well. On Monday night, a. .-' it half- past nine, Isabella Young came to witness's house to a • her to sleep vfcth her, aad said she was frightened to sleep a'.. no Witness » o$ sed the road with her as she returned to Miss Sxitli's; it was then a quarter to ten. Witness stopped at the window't* H she got- info bed in the kitchen. Witness heard her I .1.. 1. and bolt the door, isalsella Young toid her she might go u ay v. lien she got to bed, and she went away. She saw lier next r oi " ing murdered. John Ramsay lived at l iei'rington at the time, and was disturb* ,- j about two o'clock ot' the morning of the 29th; he got up, saw , -. i.-. s Smith's house in flames ; lie went to the house, ran along a passage, and at the kitchen door saw Isabella Young lying ; he d her out and perceived i: o life in her. She was Undressed, e nd had her tinder petticoat grasped in her left hand. John Creduce, Surgeon, ,- t Bishop- Weai- mouth, was sent for, a m saw the body on tiie morning of the 29th. He found two 1 u p " wounds pii tbe back of her head, and a fracture, on the right side of her head. The blows had uudoubtedty occasioned . her death. • , " J L i n c o l n , a seafaring man at Sunderland, knew the prisoner Eden for 20 years. In 1815 Eden Was in the Durham milit.- i ' i had previously been a keelman at Sunderland. About Jive j'cl- ock in the evening before this woful affair happened, Eden ccir. e to the witness in his own house, stood on the middle of the tfooi with his hat on one side of his bead, and appeared very groggy. Witness sat in an arm chair, and smoked his pipe. Eden h- fld a bluejacket and trovvsers on, He said, " James, I am going to Ilerrington tri- iiight; will you go along with us ?" Witness saitl; " 1 don't know." " Why, James?" Eden Said. " I am going to llerringtou on a very disagreeable piece of business ; 1 don't know whether I should go or not." " Well, John," said vitness, " don't go." " Do yon know any body about Herruigton, James?" Witness said, " Not many." He said, " Do ycu know one Wolfe?" Witness said. " I know Mr. Wolfe, the g? ol- keeper, at Durham." He said, " That is not the man; this ii. a farmer man ; he was farmer to Miss Smith, at Herrington." l i e said, " I warrant you know Miss Smith, James." " Aye," said aud hk wife together, when he hail been at home about two months: Eden and his wife had very high words. The wife said, when she was felled by him on the floor, " O you villain! 1 could hang thee for a word. 1 Cross- examined by Mr. WILKINSON— He was master df a small sloop, about the conclusion of the war. When the sloop was laid up by the owners, he was out of a birth. He was obliged to sell his furniture, and got his bread mostly by going up to the collieries to beg a bit of bread. l i e came now from the workhousee. He had seen Eden about a fortnight before the 28th of August. Eden had never said anything of this any other time. Eden had never gone out of the way. Witness never mentioned a word about it till about three years after. He always wished and prayed it might fall upon some person rather than on him to put it forth, for fie knew it was a very dangerous business. ( To a juror.) It was not from regard to Eden, but because his own life would not be safe in Sunderland, and he must now leave Sunderland w ilh his four children. A reward of 200/. had been offered. ( To tbe Court.) He could not say lie expected the reward: he would not refuse it. ( 100(. had been offered by an advertisement from Bowstreet Office, and 100/. by Miss Smith.) He never knew Savory, but he understood he was a gingerbread- baker at Bishop-' Wearmouth. He said, " We have got Savory." He meant that he was in custody upon that gharge. Re- examined in chief.— He spoke of Savory about two months ago. There was a great talk of Savory coming from America. There had been a talk that lie had brought with him some golden images from America. ( Miss Smith was a Catholic.) Hearing that Savory was coming home prisoner concerning the images, he might have said in the streets, " We have got Savory." He meant nothing respecting this murder or robbery, as imputed to Savory, only the golden images, it was said, had been in the house, and Savory was said to have bought them. He had been in the workhouse, but never in his life charged with a crime. By the Court.— He was examined before the Magistrates twice, and mentioned th. e same things. He thought he had stated that 1-. L1.- U had said he must be at Newcastle at six o'clockinthe morning, for he had run it. ( This was not found in the examinations.) Edward Kellett was at the time a watchman at Sunderland, and acting as a watchman when the murder aud burning happened. lie had know n Eden from a child. To the best of his belief, he saw him on the morning he heard of the robbery, between four and five o'clock, between the town- hall, and Bodewelllane, Hi Sunderland,- having on a regimental jacket, a regimental cap, and white trowsers. He had no side arms, and was carrying nothing. He was very clean. Another man, who was with him, carried a bundle. lie saw Mr. Watkin, Mr. Davison, and two other Gentlemen on the morning on which he heard of the robbery. To the best of his belief, but he was not positive, that was the morning he saw Eden. Cross- examined by Mr. WILKINSON.— Eden did not bear oneof the best of characters. Neither of tbe other prisoners was the man with him. Elizabeth Clark lived in Herrington, knew Eden by sight, knew Miss Smith's house, and saw Eden in the house on tbe Sunday afternoon before the robbery. There were some papers on the parlour table before him. What he was doing with them witness knew not. Miss Smith was not at home. Witness did not see the girl. Witness looked, because she was surprised to see a stranger man there. She had seen the girl a little before. He was dressed in a blue jacket and trowsers. Cross- examined by Mr. WILKINSON.— He looked at her. but did not seem alarmed. When she saw him at the time she was before the Magistrate, she had not the presence of mind to recollect that it was the same man. But upon recollection she afterwards became perfectly satisfied that it was the same man. Ann Howe ( again) saw Isabella Young on the Sunday, in the afternoon, standing at the door, and they went into Miss Smith's kitchen, and walked with her again, about half- past seven, towards Sunderland, about a mile from Herrington. They met several men, and onu man in sailor's clothes, with whom they entered into conversation: witness never saw him before ; Isabella Young was acquainted with hiin: he was a tallish man, pock- fretted, with a thinuish face. Witness " left Isabella Young with him for about ten minutes. He bad asked Isabella Young how she was. After he had left them, he called to Isabella Young. th: i' he would be up some night that week: she said, " Weil, John, I don't want you." John Eden, the prisoner, was the mail; she was certain of it. Cross- examined He was coming from Sunderland: he was very mild when he spoke. She was never sent for to be examined before Tuesday last: she could sweaf that was tbe very man. John Close was in the Durham militia in 1315, a corporal.— They marched into Newcastle on the 26th of August, 1815— John Eden was in tbe same company. He had a wife. A guard report was kept in order to mention the prisoners confined, and the nature of the crime. John Eden was absent from the company on the 28th day of August. Witness recollected that very well. Edeu lad been absent on the evening parade of Sunday, anil the whole day Monday. The report he held in his hand had been made bv bis direction, and iu it he was entered absent for two days, most unintell said, Wolfe not' tri I;: ess, " and her father many years ago." " T h a t , " he ' is thfe house we are going to to- night, and I expect is the man that will go through the business: 1 -• ould ve a < 1 n for a man if be cannot go through his busii -. s.

If you go to Harrington with me to- night, James, 1 don't know- nut I'll be able to give you more money then you can work for, for twelve months." " John," said witness, ." I'll not go." He said, '< No man heed be frightened lo go along with me, for I would never give that man or woman leave to stand before me in a Court to condemn. me. I don't want you to go into the house with us; I'll tell you what to do when. you get there." " John," said witness, " I'll- not go." " . N. o, ' James." said lie, " your heart lies ill'the wrong . place ; before- you go with us, you will sit there till you perish like a" '.. » ; oi: J ' <(: i pm for fastening boats to; the phrase was common there). " No, John," said witness, " while 1 can waife up to the colliery and ask for a bit of bread." " Why. James," he said, » ' 1 cm sorry at nought, fcr we shall have to do away with the poor lass before we can ^ o through with this piece of business." Witness said, " Don t go, ' Jontr." Eden replied. " I promised to go, and go 1 will. Miss Smith's maiden is'a bit of a sweetheart of mine, and to- night'I expect to make her confess - where all JMISS S'cmh's uipi^ ldy inpney is. Xhe. b— ch denied me v.' hat. l wanted of her ; Iftif to- night 111 have her whether she will or not— bet 1 tnu'n ( must) away." lie took a step towards the . door, and turned suddenly round to w itness- again, and said, " J tmes, you need net take any notice of what I have said to > ou. , fiat 1 mod- hot mind, for you are not that man able to go • through that'- piece " business. Good night." He then ran down stairs, arid witness saw no more of him till about seven wedks after, when the regiment was disbanded? he bad no further talk with him. : Next morning witness heard the dteadl'iil news that tbe houSe'< jas burnt down, ' and the ooor maiden murdered. That was in Sunderland, about ten o'clock. Witness saw Ed' n ( The report w as unintelligible to the Court, and was eligibly explained by tbe witness.) Evidence was next given with respect to George. Wolfe, the son. Wm Boyd, a police- officer of the city of Edinburgh, searched the flat occupied by George Wolfe, on the 27th of October last, and found a pocket- book in a chest, which was not locked. His wife and three officers were with hirr,. That shown was the book; he had made a small tear upon it for a mark. George Wolfe had not been present. Cross- examined by Mr. HOLT.— At that time Wolfe was employed as a furrier, with Grieve and Scott. Wolfe was not present,. He was sent to England about the 8th of Nov. Witness saw him again at Edinburgh, in the Cow- gate, at large. Lady Peat ( an elderly personage, of peculiar appearance) re. membered having Isabella Young in her service, and had gone from home about the 17th of August, to a considerable distance. She left very great and very valuable property; she left that pocket- book ( found in Wolfe's room) in her desk, in her own room, above the kitchen. She was otiite sure it was the book. Cross- examined by . Mr. HOLT.— Before Dr. Grey, about six months ago, she did not swear to the pocket- book, because she did not like to incur more trouble and expense, having lost so much valuable property. She did not wish for a prosecution, having had so much . trouble, and believing herself unequal to a prosecution. lie was ' discharged; but she then knew it as well to be her pocket- book as now. There were Bank- notes in it, kept for the uses of the family. She lost about four more pocket books. Re- examined in chief.— She bad bad frequent occasion to see the pockc- H- book for taking money out of it. Her reason for reluctance to swear to the pocket- book was, that having lost her house, containing many ancient and valuable things, she was unwilling to incur expenses and trouble. She had discharged Mr. Gregson, the solicitor, From bringing on a prosecution. Mr. Baron WOOD.— So the murder of a poor servant girl was not worth prosecuting. Her Ladyship began a speech ill reply which threatened to be very long, but his Lordship soon expressed himself satisfied. David Sinclair had been ill th » service of Messrs. Mouncey and Richardson, furriers, in Sunderland. George Wolfe was in the same employ. On Monday, the 28th of August, witness was at work, but George Wolfe was not there on that day. Between eight and nine on' Tuesday morning he came to work, his left eye was black, and his left cheek scratched. There were three scratches from- his eye to hiswhiskers. ' The prisoner did not say how he got the black eye and the scratches. Cross- examined by Mr. Hot*— It was not uncommon for workmen to be absent on Mondays. Wolfe did not come on Tuesday so early as usual. l i e stayed at the work about 15 weeks after. * Witness never saw him have a black eye before: he had given this evidence first in November last, when Wolfe was taken and discharged, notwithstanding this evidence. When report came of Wolfe the father having been taken, a^ iri being brought from Carlisle, there was a talk in the factory of the black eye and scratches or. Wolfe the soil, and witness remembered it from circumstances. Mr. Nicholas Fairless, a Magistrates, proved the declaration of George Wolfe, and that the book produced was'the one presented to Wolfe at the time, and he felt stri/ ngly impressed, from Lady Peat's countenance, that she knew the book, although she declined to swear to it. The examination was put in evidence. It stated that the pockethook bad been his wife's father's, and had come to her from Her father when he died, six years ago, and had been 111 h.' r possession ever since. The evidence now respected James Wolfe, the father. Come on Sunday, la order to view the house. Wolfo had said, that Miss Smith had distressed him as much as she could, and said, " D— her, I'll be revenged; no one will be sorry, if she were robbed." Witness said, it would be poor revenge to put his life in danger. Wolfe said, if he had other two with him, it would be easily done. Witness said, she would be sure to make an alarm. He said he Would soon put a stop to that; if she did, he would think it no sin the killing of her, Jarc. es Wolfe, the prisoner at the bar, was the man. Cross- examined by Mr. HOLT.— Wolfe had beon a stringer to w- ituess before that. Wolfe made dead sure of witness going with him From June to September, 1815, he worked at Bridlington- quay in Y'orkshire. He heatd of the reward offered. When he saw the bill, stating the murder, at a publit- bou. se in Easington, on the 6th of September, he said to ther landlord, Harrison —" D— n it, I know who has been at the bottom of tliis !" He was taken before the magistrate oil the charge of being himself concerned, and was bound over; he was not committed. Cross- examined by Mr. WILKINSON.— Wolfe did say he knew a man that would join us. Re- examined in chief.— That man, Harrison, ( pointed out) was the landlord to whom he made the remark on seeing the bill. ( Mr. Williams remarked that he could not call Harrison, but the prisoner's counsel might call him.) Edward Wright took a pdblie- house first in the year 1816, in Sunderland. Tie knew George Wolfe and Eden by sight: they used to be in the habit of frequenting witness's house. Once on a Saturday night, they wvere together, but witness did not know whether they knew one another. John Eden, in his defence, said, that he had never seen James Wolfe in bis life, till he was prisoner with him. James Wolfe said, there was not one word of truth in what Miss Smith ( Lady Peat) told concerning him, and that he had never seen her since he left the farm till now. George Wolfu said he was iunoccnt, and knew nothing at all about it. Witnesses were then called for Eden. The Rev. Sir Robert Peat said, that Eden Mid been committed about 12 months since, some time after the commitment of James Wolfe: he saw Eden before bis commitment: Eden always declared that he was perfectly innocent. Thomas Tarn, Sir Robert's servant, was present at searching Eden's bouse. Every part was readily shown to them, and they found nothing. , Cross- examined.— It was in December last, Mary Smith trades with glasses, & c.: knew Eden for 10 years: he was a keelman, and lived then with his father and mother: he was now married: about 6 years ago he brought his wife to her house in Newcastle to lie ill of her first child. She remeftlbered the Durham militia marching into Newcastle on a Saturday, about 4 years ago. It was about the time of this murder. She saw Eden then, and saw him next day between 1 and 2 o'clock. He was in liquor then, very drunk. He stayed till the Monday morning. She and her family lived with him all the time. She must have known it if he had left the house. She had been then" a widow. Cross- examined.— Her mother and daughter, and two sons, lived with her. The daughter was now 18, the eldest son 12. Her motherw » sstill living. None of them were here; they had rtot been called on. Eden was to have married her for her second husband, but it was not her lot. The Jury here wished to have two witnesses called respecting Eden's absence from the regiment, and they were called. Serjeant- Major Simpson said, that he recollected Eden being reported absent on the morning and evening parade on the Sun- • day, and the same on Monday, and did not see him till Friday; but to the best of bis belief it was reported to him on Wednesday or Thursday that he was in custody. He had ordered non- commissioned officers to search for him. John Richardson, a sergeant in the Durham militia, said, that Eden was absent from parade on the Sunday morning and evening, and the same on Monday. He recollected that he found him, he w as almost sure on Tuesday evening, at least on Tuesday or Wednesday, in a public- house in Newcastle. He was rather tipsy; he was taken to the guard- house, and was in confinement for two or three days. The Rev. Dr. Grey, one of tbe acting Magistrates, said, that when George Wolfe was brought before tbe Magistrates iu October last, Lady Peat was there, and two pocket- books were produced, and upon Lady Peat being asked if she could swear to either of them she said she could not. He drew her attention to a red and green one as rather remarkable ; she said she could not swear to it, and said one book was like another. Cross- examined.— She expressed herself dissatisfied with the proceedings. Dennis Turnbull, a shoemaker in Sunderland, was with George Wolfe in a public- bouse on the Sunday before tbe murder. Wolfe and John Bellwood quarrelled, and Bollwood struck him Oil th. e eye. Witness interfered for* Wolfe, aud that made him recollect it. George Young was there. It Was the Life- boat public- house. Cross- examined by Mr. WILLIAMS The reason why he recollected it was the Sunday before tbe murder, was only that he could recollect It. (' This answer was repeated several times.)- It was the right eye, he believed, because he thought so, but lie could not rightly swear. He did not see the scratches. Tbe eye was black on the Sunday night. He knew Wolfe from being children. He mentioned this first when Wolfe was brought from Edinburgh. That was the first tiiae he thought of recollecting it. Mr. HOLT here remarked upon a hand- bill, purporting to be a true and full account of the murder, aud representing that the prisoners bad voluntarily confessed it. Mr. Baron WOOD said, that it was highly Improper to circulate any thing of the kind. All tbe Jurv declared they knew nothing of it. Mr. Baron WOOD recapitulated the evidence, and made several remarks on the various parts of it. ' The qvideuce consisted wholly of circumstances. All must feel the highest indignation against the perpetrators of the horrid crime committed; but they must not suffer their feelings to carry them to conviction without full proof. If they were satisfied without doubt that the prisoners, or any of them, were the perpetrators, they would find a verdict of guilty. The Jury retired about half- past 2 o'clock. It was then proposed to call another Jury for tbe other trial of murder in the calendar; but l is Lordship remarked, that they could not by law tained a considerable portioh of the plunder. Enraged by this conduct the convicts gave such information as led to the apprehension of their employers. On the trial, a surprising chain of circumstanecs corroborated almost every material part of Buckee'sevidence; and the Jury, with very little hesitation, found all the prisoners Guilty, but recommended them to mercy. The trial lasted seven hours. Before the sentence, the prosecutors, bathed in tears, also implored for mercy for the prisoners. To this brief statement we shall only add Mr. Baron Garrow s speech Oh passing sentence of Death on the prisoners, who were visibly deeply affected :—• " Abraham Abrahams, Judah Solomon, and Joseph Solomon, I am very much afraid that the severe labours of this day have left me hardly voice enough to execute, as I ought to do, the remaining part of ray duty. You have, after a long and anxious inquiry into all the circumstances of the case, been severally found guilty ( on evidence on which I think it quite impossible for any man to doubt, who is capable of reasoning) of the offence of procuring and hiring three unhappy men te commit a burglary in the house of your near neighbour. " There is nothing more gratifying to me in the administration of the criminal law, than to have the recommendation of a Jury, Lady Peat ( again) said, the elder Wolfe had been her tenant, and ceased to be so in hay- time, ill 1814. He paid very badly, and bad gone Off w ithout paying, although she had declined to execute a distress which liad been got against him, with the hope that lie could sell to greater advantage. He afterwards said that he would be revenged, and that lie was not done with her yet: be said so at five or six different times. The house he lived m was left damaged. Cross- examined by Mr. HOLT He did not pay all his rent.— She did not go to a Magistrate to swear the peace against him: she did not wish to aggravate a revengeful man. James Shaw, a gardener, at Sunderland, worked with James Wolfe at a quarry, about the latter end of 1814, and remembered a particularly windy night; it was Friday night; a wall, fell down and killed a man." On that day witness and Wolfe liad a conversation. as it was such a cold day. about some having so much and some so little. Wolfe remarked how much that b— ch, Miss Smith, had, and that he would think nothing of robbing her house. . Witness said, it wouid not be eisy done, as there were so many houses. Wolfe said, if witness knew what was good for him, he would go with their.: he knew a back way by which it was easy to enter the house. He added, that witness had a d d bad heart in his belly to be in such poverty. On the next morning, Wolfe asked witness, if lie had thought upon, it, and irtade up his mind. Wolfe asked witness to go to take a view of the house on Sunday, anil said he would himself go a part of the way, but not > to Iierrington, for be sluuld he known. Witness engaged ' proceed to another trial while a Jury were enclosed upon murder, i t was at last agreed to defer the other trial till to- morrow morning, at S At half- past four o'clock the Jury returned. Their approach excited a most visible sensation throughout the multitude assembled in Court. When the Foreman pronounced the verdict— Guilty upon John Eden, the general feeling could no longer be suppressed. A similar expression was repeated when Guilty was announced as the verdict on James Wolfe. George Wolfe was found Not Guilty. A female, said to be the wife of one of the prisoners, shrieked iu a most agonizing tone wflen the verdicts' were given. The two wretched convicts stood unmoved. George Wolfe bowed his head, and was scarcely able to utter, " I thank you," when he heard liimseif acquitted. When they were asked successively what they had to say why sentence of death should not be pronounced; John Eden said lie was innocent, and went into a confused statement of perjuries against him, and of his having never seen tbe man in bis life. JamesWoli'e said, he was innocent as when God made him. He had been at Cockburn when the thing was done. Mr. Baron Woou pronounced the awful sentence to this effect. —" John Eden and James Wolfe, you have been convicted of the crime of w ilful murder, one of the greatest crimes which man can commit; a crime punishable with death, not only by the laws of this land, but by the law of God, and the voice of nature. Ill your case, murder was also attended with aggravated circumstances. Y6u committed the murder to conceal breaking into a house at midnight, and robbing it of much property; and to conceal the murder, yoti set fire to . the house. Such oil accumulation of crimes has been seldom heard of, and I hope will never be heard of again in this country. One of you, I am sorry to observe, seemed to have considered at'. d planned the act some time ' before, aird it seems as if you determined to carry it into execution at all events. The other of you seemed to have determined to kill Miss Smith, if she had been there. Nothing seems to have interrupted you in your nefarious course.— ( James Wolfe here exclaimed, " 1 am clear as God in heaven.'^ — But minder seldom passes undiscovered or unpunished. By the providence of God, circumstances occurred which have brought your crime to light, anil it is now my painful dpty to pronounce your punishment, which must be carricd into execution. 1 hope you have repented, and continue to repent. I most earnestly recommend to you to apply by prayer to God for that mercy in another world which man cannot give you here. Nothing now remains for me to do but to pronounce the awful sentence » which the law ordains for your crime. That sentence is, that on Monday next, the 16th of August, you be hanged by your necks till you are dead, and your bodies afterwards given to be dissected and anatomized; aiid may God have mercy on your souls U> John Eden would fain enter into further protestations, of his innocence, but he was not allow ed. As he was led away he looked towards the crowd behind the dock, and said he was innocent, he had never seen the man, and be hoped his case would/ be a warning, HOME C I R C U I T — K E I N T ASSIZES, MAIDSTONE Abm. Abrahams, aged 24, Judah Solomon, 36, Jos. Solomon 35, were charged with procuring, counselling, and hiring, ' D. Jacobs, John Ball, and Abraham Buekee. to commit a burglary iu the dwelling house cf - Abraham Abrahams, and Wot Myers, Minster, of which burglary the said Jacobs, Ball, and Buekee were convicted at the iast Assizes. The principal evidence was that of Abraham Buckee, one of the men convicted at the last Assizes, who stated, that the abov prisoners hired him, Jacobs, and Bail, to commit the burglary that ts'ov afterwards deserted them in their necessity, ar. d re case. Though the Jury and the Prosecutors have recommended you, I feel it my duty to tell you that I cannot— that I dare not act upon that recommendation. I say, most certainly, that when I. leave this place, you will be left for execution, and if mercy is t'i » be extended to you, it must proceed from another quarter, ani from a higher authority. " One of the witnesses, who has received his Majesty's most gracious pardon, and who has stated himself to have been addicted for a considerable period of time to vicious courses, was a ready instrument in the hands of those who were planning to rob their near neighbours, whose habits were well known to them. You, Abraham Abrahams, planned the burglary you went up to London to procure persons for tbe purpose you arranged every thing, and held out the inducement. Another of you, to whom two of the burglars were sent, furnished them with tbe money with which they were to be sent to fhe field of action. The other showed them the scene for plunder, telling them to go on to the execution of the plan, and when they were inclined to go back, you urged them to the commission ot the crime, by assuring them the plunder wouid be more than they expected. Two of you waited on the spot, to take a part of the stolen property, and the. other remained in town, to receive the other part. Instead of bringing these men to justice, you defeated her ends, and converted a considerable portion of the* plunder, even up to this day, to your own use. " This has been a most important trial to society at large, aud my reason for saying so, is the consideration that wicked men would not engage in burglaries, and other acts of dishonesty, if there were not persons to be found ready to receive and dispose of the plunder they may obtain. But this trial will read a lesson to accessaries before and after the fact, that when they join in such acts, they do it with the halter about their necks, and that thev can have no security while one of their. guilty gan" exists. The case may come home to them, who for months and° years have indulged in fancied security; it will teach gangs, that there can be no honour among dishonest persons, and that when they enter into a conspiracy against the public, it is only a trial of which shall run the quickest in the race, to save himself, and hang his comrades in guilt; and it will teach them, that the bast and safest way is to live as honest men. " It is not for me to saw how this case will be viewed bv other persons. I shall represent in the proper quarter the recommendation of the jury, and'of the prosecutors, but as far as my judgment goes, their recommendation in this, tiie first instance of the kind, since I have had the honour of being a Judge, will'not be accompanied by my recommendation. 1 feel that 1 should nor do my duty to the public, if I did not leave you for execution, to be redeemed from it only by those who may be better able than myself to watch over the interests of the community."— His Lordship then passed sentence of dea'th on all the prisoners, and they were taken from the bar in the greatest distivss. HAYTI. ( F R O M T H E E O Y A L G A Z E T T E O F H A Y T I , O F M A Y 2 5 . ) C A P E H E N R Y , M A Y 2 5 . On the 4th of May, his Britannic Majesty's ship Shearwater, Captain Cox, entered the port from Jamaica, despatched by Sir Home Popham. As soou as his Grace the Duke Marmelade, Governor of the capital, and Baron Dupuy, Secretary-, were apprised of this agreeable news, they hastened' to give notice to his Majesty, who was absent, visiting tile Spanish part of the Island. His Majesty immediately gave his orders to the Governor, as as to be prepared to receive the Admiral with all the regard and distinction due to his character ; and ordered a guard of troops of the line to wait his arrival. His Excellency was expected for many days by the people of the capital. At length, on the 16th, after twelve days' expectation, at one o'clock in the afternoon, ins Britannic Majesty's frigate Iphigene, of 44 guns, Captain Barker, followed ( by the brig of war Beaver, from llavannah, entered the port, having Sir Home Ponham on board the frigate. A Royal salute was fired. Baron Dupuy repaired on board the frigate, to compliment, in the name of the' King, the Admiral, and invited him to come onshore. The Admiral landed early next morning; he was shown into the carriage of the Governor. The next dav his Majesty gave audience to tiie Board of Foreign Commerce*. ' The day following the Governor, with his numerous Staff, repaired in procession to the Hotel of his Excellency to compliment him. Ilis Grace the Duke Marmelade invited his Excellency to dine with him, together with Captaip Parker. On this occasion there was a splendid repast at the Hotel of the Governor. Among the patriotic toasts suitable to the occasion, the following was drunk: " The King of Great Britain"—" The King of Havti, mayhe complete gloriously what he has commenced wisely." anil • ' A perpetual union between the Haytians and the English." After dinner his Excellency retired; and in the evening be honoured with his presence the ball which was given by the Governor, on the occasion of his Excellency's arrival. ' The following day his Excellency visited the Royal Acadeniv. the National School, and the Magaziiiesi'or Clothes and Provisions ; and walked in the couutry with Captain Parker and his Officers. On the 21st, at four o'clock in the morning, his Majesty, our ery august and well beloved Sovereign, entered this city, accomjanied by his Royal Highness the Prince Royal, returning from lis tour. His Majesty immediately announced his arrival to his Excellency, and signified to him that he should be bappy to give him an audience in his palace at ten. The Admiral went at the hour appointed, having Captain Parker in his carriage. His Excellency was introduced, were the other Officers, into the hall of audience, by the masters of ceremonies, and presented to the King by M. the Baron de Dupuy. His Majesty received his Excellency and his Officers with much friendship, and with the greatest attention. His Majesty, and his Royal Highness, his well- beloved son, remained more than four houts with his Excellency, who appeared to be very well pleased with the particular attention which'he received from his Majesty. On the morning of the 22d, his Excellency went on board the frigate, which sailed early the next morning. His Excellency carried with him our good wishes, and our regrets that we could not retain him any longer time. Every kind of refreshment has been sent on board the frigate, by order of his Majesty, with a readiness and pleasure which furnish unei* iivocal proof how happy we shall always be to receive visits of our true and good friends !
