HIS Office was established in tiie Year 1797, hy a numerous and respectable Proprietary ; and the Board of Directors, with Con- fidence, arising from the increased Prosperity and Permanency of the Establishment, as well as from the Experience of its Usefulness and Benefit to the Public, think it due to those who may be still inn acquainted with the Importance and Advantages ! of LIFE INSURANCE, briefly to suggest some of its leading nnd peculiar Recommendations to al i most every Rank in Society. j Life Insurance is ofimnifest Consequence to all who hold Estates for Life. Situations and Offices, Civil, Ecclesiastic^* or Professional; to Officers | in the Army and Navy, & c. as, by Payment of an j Annual Premium, the Party insured is enabled to ! provide for Wife, Children, or Others, whose future Welfare he may wish in vain, by other i Means, to promote. It affords a permanent ulti- mate Security to tho^ e who advance Money upon Annuities or otherwise. It renders Leases, deter- minable on oue or more Lives, nearly equal in Value to Freehold Estates, as HII Insurance to the Amount of the Fine, payable on the Demise of a Party nominated to such Leases, will produce the Sum required forthe Renewal. It is a cheering Refuge to Parties engaged iu extensive ami spe„ dilative Undertakings; it affords to Persons in Trade the certain Means of Indenmificat ion against a bad or doubtful Debt ; in short. Life Insurance, established in Policy, sanctioned bv Government, and confirmed bv the Test of Experience, is be- come, 10 almost every Situation of Human Life, a Measure equally important, useful, and bemfi- cia!. Annuities arc granted upon the most equitable Term*, under a special Act of Parliament granted to 1 hi* Gllice. T R O M A S P A R K E, Secretary. PFJJCA N COM P. 4 S Y'S Agents a'. SimFwsfcuRY ..

GREY inquired whether Ministers had in contemplation anv plan for the relief nf the country? Earl LIVERPOOL replied, that there was a measure before the other House of Parliament, which would soon come before their Lordships, but he was not nware'. that Ministers had any specific motion to bring forward in that House on the subject. Earl GREY observed, that the Committee on Agriculture was uot likely to produce any practical result ; and that every measure for the relief of the present distress must be inadequate. without a reduc- tion fif taxation. As therefore Ministers bad no measure to propose on the subject, he should himself, on an early day after the holidays, call the attention of the House to the State of the Country, and the only remedy, a reduction of taxes. CIVIL LIST. Lord KING made his promised motion respecting the Civil List'. His Lordship prefaced it bv acknow- ledging tiie late spontaneous sacrifice made by the King from that ' portion of it ' appropriated to his MajestyV persouni^ expeusrs, over which Parliament had no controul-, and concluded his speech with moving au Address tu his Majesty, praying a reduc- tion in the amount of the several other branches of the public expense, parMcularly in that portion of it relating to". the appointments of Ministers to foreign courts. It was against this last bead of expense bis Lordship's speech was principally directed. The Earl of LIVERPOOL, after defending the exist- ing diplomatic appointments, concluded by stating that he did not believe they would find a single Ambassador who was overpaid, or who had more than would barely pay his actual expences. It would he more fair to say that they should have no such appointment at all, than that they should not be able to The Noble Lord had not in ins opinion case, and lie should oppose his motion. Lord HOLLAND thought the Noble Earl should take no great credit for his reductions, for Ire had formerly said lie must resign if they touched the establish- ments of the country, as he could not then carry on the government of tiie State, Yet when those very reductions had been forced on him he took credit to himself for them, and did not resign. He felt con vinced that without injuring the public service, great savings might be made in these matters. After a few remarks from Lord Ellenborough, the motion was negatived without a division. HOUSE OF COMMONS— WEDNESDAY. GAOL DELIVERIES. Sir E. HARVEY presented a petition from the Grand Jury of Essex, calling on the House to devise some means by whieh general gaol deliveries should be rendered more frequent in tbe county of Essex.— Mr. WESTFRN supported the prayer of the petition. The necessity of more frequent gaol deliveries was fully, exemplified by what was now passing at Maidstone. The number of prisoners had increased to such an extent, that Mr. Baron Graham was. obliged to put ..*¥ \ 7:„; n-,, .. c • . find sentenced.—- tn Cork, the Commission has also recommenced, but the convictions are comparatively fewer.— Tn Mayo there were 200 prisoners in gaol, 56 of whom were discharged without prosecution. Seven men were capitally convicted at these Assizes for liihbonism, to four of w hom mercy, it is hoped, will be extended.—- In Clare, wo are sorry to say, that some outrages have taken place.-- The Magis- trate's of Kilkenny have met, and memorialed Go- vernment to pftt three. Baronies, and a part of a fourth, under the Insurrection Act. Some outrages are stated to have been lately committed in several parts of this county. 1' HOUSE OF COMMONS— MONDAY. AGRICULTURAL COMMITTEE. After some business of no especial- importance, Mr. Gooon appeared at the Bar with the Report of the Agricultural Committee. The Cleik was pro- ceeding to read the report, when Lord LONDON- DERRY observed, that a, it could he printed and ready for delivery to Members in 48 hours, he sub- mitted it wonld be better to let it rest without reading, lest imperfect accounts of its contents should go forth lo the public.— Mr. ELLICE agreed to this, as they could have the report before the holidays.— Mr. CALCRAFT wished to ask if there was any instruction for the Chairman to submit any motion to the House — Mr. GOOCH said he had no instruction, — Lord LONDONDERRY proposed on the. 22d of April to submit a general measure to the consideration of the House iu a Committee. There was a question, respecting the state of Ireland, but he could make arrangement with the Right Hon. Baronet on that subject; He hoped gentlemen would come down to discuss this question with only one object, the public relief — Mr. BEN NET wished for earlier discussion.—* ....... I„ U » .„.

POSTSCRIPT, London, Monday Night, Jpril 1. 3 per Cent. Cons 79$.— 5 per Cents. 103£. The accounts from France announce a continued depresssi. on of the French funds. It is stated that some serious disturbances or plots have taken place at Rochelle, Brest, aud other places. We regret to state, that the destruction of farming property^ by incendiaries, in the counties of Norfolk and Suffolk, has been very great durino- the last and preceding weeks. The Lhibtin Evening Post of Saturday last says—" In Limerick, 15 men have been left for execution, all of whom have, by this lime, ex piated their off.-. • - by an ignominious death. The Special Commission under the Insurrection Act has r< commenced iis sittings in Limerick, and some convictions have already taken place.—- In Kerrv, three persons have been capitally convicted; and, we regret to say, that Some disturbances have recently taken place. A man has been murdered ne r Listowel. The Special Sess. ous under the Insurrection Act have again commenced in this ....... comity, and several persons have been convicted these diabolical crimes, would be wrong at present to offer any remarks; nut it. might have been hoped, that ihe perpetration of such atrocities, and the certainty of the parties, if discovered and convicted, being capitally punished, would have prevented further similar violations of the law; and we deeply lament that such has not been the result. On Sunday night last, the planta- tions and garden of J. W. Smith, Esq. at Radbrook, about a quarter of a mile from the scene of the former outrages, were entered by some desperate villains, and a great utimber of young trees destroyed and other mischief done ; same night, about 40 squares of glass were broken iu a newly erected house ( belonging to Mr. Jones, shoemaker, High- street), situate about a quarter of a mile to the eastwaid of Radbrook, ami much other damage also done to these premises, & to the garden attached. But. this, we are sorry to say, is not all : early yesterday morning, some incendiaries set fire to the contents of the coach- house, & c. at Radbronk Villa, attached to which coach- house, are a stable, cow- house, and other well- built outbuildings, and, b> tit for the timely discovery of the flames bv Mr. Smith's female servants, the whole of the out- premises would have been destroyed ; on the alarm being given, messen- gers were dispatched to this town for t he engines of the Salop Fire Office; the watchmen immediately alannedthe inhabitants; the fire- bells were set to ring ; and in a short time, with the assistance of the engines and the persons who proceeded from the town, the { lames were subdued, but not till the in- terior of the coach- house, and loft, with a carriage at the time in the coach- house were destroyed. In con- sequence of the depredations committed on the Sun- day night, Mr. Smith'and his servant had been on the watch round the premises till about midnight on Monday, and they had not retired to rest above three quarters of an hour before the fire was discovered.— We sincerely trust, that the measures adopted will speedily lead to ihe detection of ail concerned in The business of the Assize commenced at Here- ford 00 Monday se> ii'ii^ ti!, and was brought to a close about one o'clock on Saturday last. There were 41 prisoners- for trial, of whom ten were capi- tally convicted, viz. Nathan Mitchell, Frank Tolley% Edward Kite, Richard Green, James Panta1, Gcnr'oe Pi. eece, Richard Barlow, Samuel Step toe, and Thomas Wall, for - otlrv charges of house breaking, and Thomas Jenkins, for stealing one ewe sheep at Leominster.

Welsh Pool, March 27th, 1822. it; my father said " What do you kick the dog for?" she said to my father-" I have been looking for you at tiie Plough, in the Market Place, and if I had found you, I would have given you your character." I went to my bed, and undressed myself; as soon as 1 got on the bed, my mother went and struck my father; my father got up, but Was so drunk lhat he tumbled on the bed ; he got up again, and she struck him four or five times with her fist ; my father pushed at her, and again fell on the bed; she got to ' he door, and held it half open and half shut; my father stumbled against the door, and the door shut; as the door sliut, my mother gave a shriek, and fell down stairs; the whole transaction took about four or five minutes; nothing but what I have said occurred ; npon my father asking why she struck the dog, she struck my father directly; I did not go to endeavour to prevent the quarrel, because I wear a WOoden leg, ami I had taken it off previous to going to bed ; the landing place or upper step of the stairs is about two feet broad from the door; the bed on which my father lay was two or three feet from the doof ; I have always given the same account of this - affair as near as I can recollect; I remember seeing a person mimed Elizabeth Murphy. ( The Counsel for tlie prisoner objected to this part of the examination proceeding, as the evidence of Elizabeth Murphy, and of two other witnesses exa- mined on the Coroner's Inquest, had been shut out as 1 mere hearsay testimony ] j Thomas Price:— I remember the night of the22d i Oct.; Davies and his wife lodged in my house; I went to bed about 8 o'clock ; I awoke some time after, and heard Mrs. Davies say, " O Lord !" and ; then she fell ; I got up, and I went to Davies, and i said, 44 Davies, you have killed your wife fie j answered " Not yet;" I said, u You may think of it I as you please, she is iu a dying state, ami will be a dead woman in a short time;" he answered, " I did not strike her, but I pushed her;" prisoner said no more, and seemed much in liquor. J Elizabeth Price — I am wife to fast witness; I was i sitting in the parlour about 9 o'clock, when I heard I a fall as of a person down stairs; I took a cttndle,' ! and fount) Mrs. Davies lying at the bottom, and to appearance quite dead ; 1 stept over her body, and j ran up stairs to Davies, and said, " Davies, you | have killed her;" he made no answer; I saw some- body in the other bed ; assistance came, and we took Mrs. Davies into the kitchen, and she survived about I 3 hours; 1 did not see the prisoner again that night; there were two beds iu the room occupied by Davies and his wife ; Davies's bed was abont two feet and a half from the room door.—[ A model ofthe premises ! was produced in Court.] Mr. T. Sutton, surgeon, described the injuries ! received by Mrs. Davies iu the fall, and said there could be uo doubt those injuries caused her death, j Being asked if he had any thing to say, the i prisoner said " I never touched her " i The Hon. T. Kenyon, Mr. D. Hanley, and Mr. T. | Hanley, spoke to the good character of the prisoner. His Lordship summed up, and observed, that if the Jury were satisfied the evidence given was correct, he thought they must be of opinion, that the death of i the deceased was accidentally occasioned by the forcible'shutting of the door, without any murderous | or malicious intent on the part of the prisoner, further j than the irritation occasioned by the blows he had received. Previous to the Jury consulting on their verdict, the Foreman remarked to his Lordship, that it seemed impossible to reconcile the averments of the indict ment ( of wounds and bruises on the back, head, sides, & c ) with the evidence which had been ad- duced, so as to make up their minds satisfactorily on the subject.— His Lordship said, the averments referred to were merely the forms customarily used on such occasions, arid all the Jury had to look to was the evidence. The Jury almost immediately returned a verdict of Not Guilty ; after which, the Judge remarked how very properly the Foreman had notieed the incon- gruity of the indictment as Compared with the evidence; his Lordship said, nothing could be more absurd Ihan ihe common mode of putting, in some cases, snch a series of technicality into an indictment as often extended it lo 20 counts, and this too by inserting all the trash which could be conceived. It \> as very well known that the conductors of prosecutions were pretty well informed as to the evidence lo be brought forward ; and it would answer the purposes of justice much better if the charges laid in the indictment were assimilated near as possible with the offence actually committed, instead of multiplying charges by all the various forms wliicU the wit of man cou d devise.— His Lord. Khifj- fMiKcJudrd by Mr. PiTftnTrflTi, I now thank you for the plain, sensible observation which you so pioperly made ou the subject." JOSEFU POULTER was found guilty of stealing a quantity of iron, tbe property of the Ketley Company of Ironmasters. The prisoner was employed l » v the Company as a blacksmith, and being entrusted with the working up of their iron, luid made a quantity of it into articles for the purpose of selling for his own use. The fact was clearly proved ; and the Judge observed to the prisoner-— u This is a very had offence ; for however bad the times are, and how- ever distressing they may be to some people, you were iu'eonstant employment. The Gentlemen of the Company, hy employing iheir capital in carrying on extensive works, do a great service, not only to the public, but especially to the great number of persons To whom ihey give employment. By entrusting their properly to persons to work up, they make it the bounden duty of those persons to act honestly by them; and I consider it my duty to make an ex- ample of those who] plunder iheir employers, should be sorry lo transport you from this happy country, and 1 shall therefore pass a lighter sentence Upon you, hoping that it may have a proper effect, without' banishing von entirely from the land and the soiieiy in which you have heen accustomed to folhnV yVnV^ i< iness."-- Ttop prisoner was sentenced to 6 months' imprisonment.

The Auctioneers request early Attendance, as the JOHN DAVIES, a pump- maker, aged 56, was placed at Ihe bar, and arraigned on the Coroner's Inquisi- tion, by w hich he was charged with the wilful murder of Mary Davies, his wife, in ihe parish of St. Chad, Shrewsbury, on the night of the 22d of October last. — The inquisition being produced, Mr. BATHKH, for the prisoner, objected to its being proceeded npon, as the word " feloniously" was omitted in some of its averments.— His Lordship held the objection to be good, aud animadverted with much severity on the too general laxity of Coroners in drawing up inquisitions: the office of Coroner, lie said, was one ofthe most ancient and important institutions of the country, and ought to be filled by persons of legal habits and of the most scrupulous accuracy. The Grand Jury having found a true hill against Davies for the manslaughter of his wife, he was now put on his trial for that offence; but, previous'to proceeding to the evidence, the Judge remarked on the circumstance of Davies% s son not having been taken before the Gran;! Jury, though his deposition appeared among those taken on the Inquest, and as MARY MORRIS stood charged in the calendar with lb, e wilful murder of her female bastard child in the parish of Eilesmere.— In his address to the Grand jury, on opening the business of the Assize, the J udge observed, that in looking over the depo. sitions in this case, it appeared to him there wus nothing to substantiate the charge of murder; the child had died in consequence ofthe navel- string not being properly secured after its birth; and, con- sidering the circumstance of the prisoner having delivered herself, together with the various exigen- cies of sO trying a moment, it Would require s; rong testimony to shew the wilful intent on the part of the mother to destroy the child.— The Grand Jury found no true bjl; l. The prisoner was now arraigned on ihe Coroner's Inquisition, but tbe Counsel for the prosecution observed that the Inquisition produced was not sufficiently accurate to go to trial with.— Mr. Baron GARROW looked at the Inquisition, and remarked to the Jury, that " there never was a more vicious oue ; so much so, that the Counsel for the prosecn tion had said he could not proceed upon if. I wish ( said his Lordship) it were iu my power to order the expenses pf bringing witnesses, & tc. in such cases lo be paid by the Coroners."— The Jury immediately acquitted the prisoner. WILLIAM PEPLOW, a chaise- driver, was charged with the m inslnughier of Thomas Bason, at Bridg north — It. appeared in evidence that, on the 31st of August, the deceased being then intoxicated, went to tiie Raven Iun, at Bridgnorth, where he had a small quantity of liquor, aud fell into a drunken sleep; the prisoner came in, and endeavoured lo wake the deceased, in order to take him to bed to he must evidently fiave known more of the facts oi j sober himself; having* fried every other means of the case than any of the witnesses examined before ! awaking him without effect, the prisoner poured a the Grand Jury. The Counsel for the prosecution j few drops of beer into the ear of the deceased, upon said, the reason why the son was not taken before I which he got up, was very angry, and struck the ihe Grand Jury was, his having narrated the iransac- j prisoner ; they were afterwards reconciled, and lion in so many different ways as to render it doubtful whether his testimony could lie believed.— The Judge observed, that the reason for a witness being called in such eases who was actually present on the occasion, had been illustrated some years ago, o. i the trial ofa person for an offence, at the commission of which, Mr. Burrows, an eminent Divine of the Established Church, had been present. Mr. Bur- rows had not been examined either on the Inquest or before the Grand Jury ; but the fact being stated to the Court, lie was called in evidence, and the result was, that upon his testimony the verdict ofthe Jury was founded.— Mr. Baron Gar row ihen ordered that Davies's son should be called into Court. James Davies examined— Is son to the prisoner; on ihe 22d Oct. lived with his father, who, with Mary Davies, his wife, lodged at the house of Mr. Price, on St. John's Hill; they occupied one room, a id w tne-; s slept in ' h 1 same room ; there is a flight of stairs leading from the ground floor up to that room ; I was at home on the night of the22d Oct.; ! came borne at 9 o'clock ; mv father was Ihen in bed, and entirely undrest; my mother was not at home, but she came iu about a quarter of an hour ; when she came I was eating some meat upon a table by the fire ; she came and ate some meat with me; there was a do « - in the room, and my mother kicked after some time drank together; a quarrel again ensued between the defeased and the prisoner, and they fought; in this rencontre deceased fell with his temple against the corner of the skreen, and was so much hurt that he died shortly afterwards; it appeared^ from the evidence that the prisoner was provoked to the fight, and had conducted himself throughout the proceeding with'great forbearance and a uiitober of most respectable persons spoke of his humanity nnd general good character iu the highest terms— The Jury immediately returned verdict of acquittal. THOMAS BKNNFT was then arraigned on the Coroner's Inquisition, charging him with the man slaughter of Benjamin Hudson, at Bridgnorth.— The Inquisition was handed to his Lordship, who said, he wished the famous grave- digger who appeared in Hamlet, had given certain Coroners some instruction as lo the important duties of a 44 Crowner's Quest! His Lordship observed, the present Inquisition was so inaccurate, that if the crime it alleged had been. of the blackest description, no proceedings could have taken place upon it. But this, his Lordship remark ed, was not all. Upon such Inquisitions, the county was burthened with tiie enormous expenses attendant npon bringing- witnesses to the Assize, aud when they came nothing could be done.— The prisoner was immediately, acquitted. MARGARET SMITH, aged 68, was charged with uttering a counterfeit shilling at Weulock, knowing the same to be counterfeit. She affected great weak- ness, and came up tothe bar trembling, and appar- ently much agitated. She acknowledged having uttered the shilling, but denied her knowledge of its being counterfeit.—- It appeared in evidence that the prisoner, accompanied by another woman, had gone to a public house in Wenlock, called for two pints of ale, which they drank, then paid for it with a counterfeit shilling, receiving 5d. iu change, and left the house ; suspicion arising, a constable was sent for, who overtook the prisoner about half a mile from the town; on searching her, 14 counterfeit shillings were found concealed in the botlom of her top- coat, wrapped in an old stocking ; she had also a genuine £ 1 Dudley Old Bank note, 6 good shil- lings, and 9 shillings in copper money. — A young man, who stated himself to be a nephew of the prisoner, came forward to depose to her being weak of intellect, and that her friends were often alarmed when she was strolling the country, lest some mis- hap should befal her. A young woman also gave similar testimony.— The Jury, after some consult- ation, found ber guilty.— Mr, Baron Garrow said, " No man of common sense can doubt that this old woman is a common utterer of base coin * she comes here feigning weakness and distress, when we have it in evidence that she has been travelling the country and carrying as much copper as would wear down a jack- ass. Such persons are common plun- derers, for they go about preying upon persons who sell by retail in public houses and small shops. A young man, who is the prisoner's nephew, and a young woman, who I suppose is a candidate to be her niece, have come here to express how much distress fhe prisoner's excursions occasion to her friends: I shall take care they have no distress upon lhat score for some time at least."— His Lordship then sentenced the prisoner to be imprisoned I year, aud then fo' fiiirl sureties'for two years, and io be further imprisoned until she found such sureties. ltfGHWAY ROBBERY. In the Calendar, GEORGE JAMES ( aged 17, bom at Stafford), and JOHN TURNER ( aged 19, born at Manchester), were charg- ed with severally robbing Mr Edward Davies, of Easthope, and Mr. Thomas Whitefoot, of Longville, on the highway iu the parish of Much Wertlock, on the 19th of November last.— The prisoners were put to the bar on the indictment for robbing Mr. Davies. Mr. Davies deposed— I live at Easthope ; I was at Weulock market on Monday, the 19th of November ; I left there to go home about five o'clock in the after- noon; I was quite sober; soon after I had left Wen- lock, I observed three men following me, t was on foot, and one of them passed me; he then returned again to the others ; the prisoners are two of them ; they overtook me, and James seized me by the breast of my coat; I was then a mile and a quarter from Wedlock ; James told ine to deliver my money, or he would blow my brains out, at the same time putting a pistol to my face; Turner turned round, pulled my waistcoat open, and took from me my pocket- book, which contained only some memoran dunrs ; he searched all my pockels, and took some silver nnd some halfpence; James said, if I made any noise or resistance he'd blow my brains out; I asked James for my keys, and he told Turner to give them to me ; he also told Turner fo give me back my silver, and to see theVe were no sovereigns among it; Turner gave me back four shillings ; 1 asked for my book, and James told Turner to give it to me. They then shook hands with me, said 1 had been honour- ably robbed, bid me go ou, for I was not the person they intended to rob, that they would not hurt me, and wished me good night; they had both top- coats on ; thr third person stood at some distance ; I went on, and set about endeavouring to apprehend them ; I saw them again that night, I saw Turner at the and James at the Falcon, in Wenlock ; Turner had taken his top coat off, and placed it on the back of the chair he was sitting upon, but I knew him as soon as his top- coat was put on, when ex- amined before the Magistrates; 1 am sure the pri- soners are the men. Turner was drinking alone at the Crown; I looked at him, but said nothing to him ; I told Mr. Beckett, the landlord, what was the matter, that I suspected Turner, and told him not to let him go from the house ; I then went fo the Falcon ; 1 found James there, sitting on the skreen ; I had him apprehended ; on searching him, a powder flask was found in his pocket; I then re- Jurliert to trie CTlwn, and tloii sfiuurs iipprrhended — On his cross- examination, Mr. Davies said it was not quite dark at the time of the robbery ; James and Turner were muffled up to their nose in handker- chiefs; and that somewhat altered their voice as they spoke; but from their appearance, and from the upper part of their faces, he was sure of the men when he saw ihem again with their top- coats on ; he was particularly sure of James — In his re- examiria- tioli, Mr. Davies said, it was not so dark but he could have recognised a friend or neighbour at 100 yards distance; he walked with them about a mile before they robbed him. Mr. Thomas Whitefoot examined.— I live about six miles and a half from Wenlock ; I was al Wen- lock Market on the 19th of November last; at a quarter of an hour ( or rather more) before six, I left Wenlock to return home ; I rode ou a pony ; I saw three men on the road ; it was oil the road that leads from Wenlock to Mr. Davies's house; I passed by them, and said 44 good night," as I usually do say when passing persons at night; I saw them after- wards; they were the men that robbed me. [ Here the Learned Judge begged Mr. Whitefoot to avoid mentioning that circumstance, as the men were now on trial for another offence]. The prisoners are two of the men ; I am particularly sure of Turner ; Ibis was on Monday; I saw them again on Tuesday; on which day I saw Turner iu custody at the Crown. The ostler ( Wall) at the Falcon Inn, stated that James had brought his horse and put it up there; that about four o'clock in the afternoon of the 19th of November, James came aud fed his horse ; he was then quite clean in his dress; about seven o'clock that evening he saw him again in the stable ; he wanted his horse ; he was spattled with dirt up his legs, and appeared warm as if he had been running; witness had then heard of the robbery, and he gave some information to liis master ; w itness, instead of geltingthe horse ready, went and fetched a constable, nd James was taken into custody ; witness found a pistol spanner in a mortice of tbe stable window, uear the place where James's mare had been stand- ing. Jaae Davies— was servant at the Falcon Inn, on the I9lh of November, in the afiernoon of which day, about three o'clock, she saw James there; she saw him again betweeu 7 and 8 o'clock in the kitchen ; he asked for his horse; I wentouton an errand; I saw him on my return standing near a piece of timber, a few yards from my master's door; I went into the house leaving him there. Thomas Johnson— lives at Wenlock ; early in the morning of the 20th of November was standing at his own door, opposite the Falcon; saw a piece of timber which had stood for some time near the Falcon, and by it, on the ground, on the side nearest witness, he saw two pieces of different coloured cloth ; he went and picked them up; they were two bags, the one containing a pistol ( now produced), the other contained a pistol bullet- mould ; the pistol when he found it was primed and loaded.— Mr. Davies, the prosecutor, was called, and he deposed character rather aggravates than diminishes' yavt crime. One of you ( Preese) was in a respectable service, in good pay, and under no temptation to com- mit. such an offence, but was living- in a comfortable service, and indeed in a situation to be envied by, many persons in that and , other walks of life. You laid a scheme with a labouring neighbour, by which to rob Mrs. Calcolt Of . her property— to rob her pre- mises, and to carry ber property away, and Ihe case of a servant robbing his master or mistress has always heen considered as an heinous offence. The case of the other prisoner ( Lewis) is that of combining with the servant ofa respectable manufacturer to rob his mistress of that properly, without which she coulrf not have been enabled to afford fo him and others the blessings and comforts of a good service, and if you ( Lewis) had been indicted as a receiver, I should certainly have sentenced you to be transposed. The. previous good character both of you have received, has been a iu: » sk under which you have been enabled to carry on your scheme of plunder. And if lbs sentence I am about fo pass dors not succeed in operating as a warning to others, future Judges must pass those heavier sentences, which, in similar cases, the law empowers them to inflict." Preese and Lewis! were then sentenced to be imprisoned 12 months ami publicly whipped on Wednesday ; but in conse quence of a representation made to his Lordship by Samuel Harley, Est}. Mayor of Shrewsbury, as to the good character of Lewis's family, the Judge callerf Lewis back, and fold him that, after what Mr. Harley had said, and as it never was his wish unnecessarily to wpund the feelings of worthy persons on account of the had conduct of their relatives, he should remit the whipping in his ease. — fFreetfe was flogged iu the Market Square, on Wednesday last J JOSEPH PRICE ( from near Wellington) was charged with breaking open the dwelling hoiiseof JohnPowell, ofthe parish of Pontesbury, on the 24th of September last, iu the day- time, and stealing thereout several coats and other articles of wearing apparel.— It ap- peared by the evidence of Mrs. Powell, that ou the day in question, a tall mail in a short smock frock, and with long trowsers on, Sic. came into the house aud asked leave to light his pipe. He went away ; after which Mrs. Powell went out on her business, and locked the door; on her return she found the house had heen broken open and robbed.— I't ap- peared bv the evidence of several witnesses, that on the day of the robbeiy and about the time it occurred, the prisoner was seen iu the neighbourhood, in com- pany with a man answerti; g the description of the tall man who went to Mr. Powell's to fight his pipe ; that they had then no bundles, except a very smalt one which the tall man had under his arm ; that they carried sickles as if they were looking for harvest work ; and that, to one of the witnesses, who told them harvest work was to be had towards the hills, but that the wages were only 2s. a day, thc prisoner said, " If I cannot get more wages than Ihat, I will pull the handle from my sickle, and ( pointing to the tall man) that's my butty, anil a goo^ fellow."— Mr. Jon. Knight, pawnbroker, proved that a person an- swering the description of the tall' man, had pawned two coats with him ( which were identified by Mr. Powell os part of the stolen property). Mr. T. Deaves, salesman, proved that a tall man, as above described, came and offered two other coats for sale to him ; he had some suspicions and detained Ihe coats ; he never saw the tall man again, but next day ( being Tuesday), the prisoner came, claimed fhe coats, and said he had been robbed on the Cressage road by a man, who, by his description, must have been the tall man; Mr. Deaves said he could not give them up without g" oing before a Magistrate ; they accordingly v& ent lo the Tow n Hail, where the prisoner told a plausible tale of his having heen rob- bed by tbe tall man, and begged he might have one of the coats then, as he had no other best coat to go to church in on Sunday ! He accordingly had one of the coats, the other being detained as an evidence if the alleged robber should be apprehended. As they returned down the Hall stairs, prisoner told Mr. Deaves he would always pray for him : and it was proved tbat in about ten minutes afterwards, the scoundrel went and sold his church- going coat for six shilling's to another salesman! The robbery of Mr. Powell's bouse had by thjs time reached Mr. Deaves's ears ; ami as he shortly after saw the pri- soner without the coat which he had been so anxious lo obtain, he suspected that be had been concerned in that robbery. The'prisoner was immediately ap- prehended, and the coats were proved to be part of the property stolen from Mr. Powell'*.— The Jury found Price Guilty, notwithstanding a long and most improbable tale which he told them ; and the Jndg « after complimenting Mr. Deaves on his conduct in the busjness, told Mr. Powell to takeall hi* property which had been produced, and tr. pay no person one farthing for tljem, and he would order him the wbole of his expenses. JOHN BROWN, a labouring man, aged 68yecrs, Was convicted on the clearest evidence of stealing a quan- tity of barley ( which a poor man, almost blind, had heen thrashing hy task work) out ofthe barn of Mr. Sawyer, of Bucknall, at mid- day.— The prisoner had been tried previously, in the course of his life, five various times for different offences, and on the present occasion exhibited the most hardened effron- tery.— On passing sentence, Mr. Baron Garrow observed, 44 1 have seldom wjfnessed an instance of such hardened profligacy; I have seldom witnessed such a scene as this— so disgraceful and shameful ari example of profligacy— of profligacy on which nor possible impression can be made. If the prisoner were 20 years younger, I could order him lo be transported — if he were 20 years younger, I might sentence him to be soundly flogged— I might then have tried whether long imprisonment, and public whipping, frequently repeated, would hate any impression on his hardened habits ; but at sucb au age what are. we to do with him? But, Sir ( ad- dressing himself to the prisoner), the country demands thai, for the vindication of fhe~ laws, a conspicuous example should be made of you, if possible ; and I promise you that you shall be kept, for some time at least, from a neighbourhood of which you have so long been Ihe pesf, and 1 shall order that you be put to such labour as is suited to your age. '— The prisoner was then sentenced to be imprisoned to hard labour for 2 years. WILLIAM HARRIS « as then put to tbe bar* lie had before beeu brought up aud arraigned on ajcapital indictment, charging bim wilb assaulting and witb levelling and attempting to fire a loaded pistol at Thomas Williams, of Madeley, witb in- tent lo murder ur disable bim — It appeared tbat the prisoner had beeu connected with a gang of poachers, and bad pioinised Williams ihal be would, on certain conditions, give such informa- tion as would lead to their conviction. Williams had accordingly given him some clothes, hot ibe prisoner bad failed to perform bis pail. Williams then went to prisoner's house to felch away the clothes, when tbe prisoner refused to give ibeni up, and presenting a pistol al Williams threatened to blow his brains out. Piisoner pulled llie trigger, but Ihe pistol flashed in the pan, and be lben followed Williams some distance and still presenting his pistol. Williams previously saw powder aud slogs on Ibe table in prisonei's bouse, Williams, wboi followed by prisoner, and after prisonei's pistol had flashed in the pan, also pulled a pislol from bis pocket, and threatened to shoot the prisoner, but this pistol was not loaded.— The prisoner, some days after, was boasting lhat his pistol bad been loaded, and if it had not flashed, that ihe pistol found by Mr. Johnson, resembled the I he should have shot Williams He was then ap- one which James presented at him. j prebended. The Learned Judge I bought lhat, as Thomas Woof— acted as servant at ihe Crown on ! tlwre was no evidence, beyond ihe prisoners own the 19th of November; saw Turner come in about 7 o'clock ; ho called for a pint of ale; lie appeared I very warm ; witness saw him pull his coat off and j put it on the back of the chair; when he had heen ' in about two minutes, he took his hat off, and wiped the sweat from his face with an handkerchief; about a quarter of an hour after, witness saw Mr. Davies come in; Mr. D. said nothing to witness, but went out, and came again in about half an hour, when Turner was taken into custody for the highway robbery. Being called upon for their defence, the prisoners said they never were on the highway on which the robbery was said to have taken place; hut they called no witnesses.— The Jury immediately found both the prisoners ( jjuil'v.— The indictment against them for robbing Mr. Wliitefoot vyas not gone into. EDWARD PREESE and WILLIAM LEWIS were con- victed of stealing a bag and five pecks of malt, the property of Mrs. Mary Cajcott, farmer and maltster, of Eaton Mascott.— Preese was a servant to Mrs. Calcott, and Lewis w as a householder at a mile and a half distance from Mrs. C.' s, and lo his house the property stolen was clearly traced.— A number of respectable persons came and gave the prisoners a good character.— On passing sentence, Mr. Baron Gavrow said— 44 The offence of which you have now been convicted is a very high offence, and I ain very far from thinking that, in the administration of justice, the country has not some reason to complain, when Judges do not order persons convicted as you have been to be transported. Your previous good boasting, to prove Ihe pistol was really loaded, ibe capital indictment could not be sustained. In tlris ibe Jury concurred, aod acquitted the prison- er.— An indictment for the assault wns ( ben pre* ferred, a true bill found, and the prisoner being now put on his tiial for that offence, was immedi- ately found Guilty — The Learned Judge, after an impressive admonition, sentenced bim to be im- prisoned 12 months, and. to enter into his own re- cognizance in £ 00 to keep tbe peace for three yeais afterwards. Tbe prisoners upon whom sentence had not beeu passed, were then ordered to be placed at the Bar, when STF. VKNTOX aud PoRTKR, who bad been convicted of stealing iron, the property of tbe Lillesball Company, were fij> t sentenced. His Lordship observed, lhat tbe offence of Sle- ven'on was oue of a very a* grav;<. t. i d n. jiure.

The offence of some of 5' no is that of breaking into the houses of Ihe lo « er cla ses, and robbing them of property to them of great value, because lo some of these person* liHle else of value was left, and ail of them must have acquired lhat property bv penuri- ous industry- This has been a capital offence as long as since the reign of Queen Elizabeth, and his of lale increased to such a degree ?> s almost to make labouring country people prisoners in their Own houses— as almost to prevent them going In church on the sabbath, or on oilier days going forih to work for the support of their families, lest some fellows prowling the country should enter and tob their dwellings. The offence of highway robbery has not of lale years been so prevalent as formerly ; but the crime of ihe young men, George James ami John Turner, has cir- cumstances belonging lo it which greatly add lo ils atrocity. I am sorry Turner has not profiled by the short time which has elapsed since his conviction, lie was tried upon only one of two indictments against him ; and Ihe witnesses exa- mined were so positive as to his identity, ? s to leave no rational doubt on the minds of even the most sceptical. It was seen thai an instrument of death had been used, and it was found in a spot where one of the prisoners had certainly been observed. And in Ihe ca » e upon which evidence was not gone into, the bridle of'ihe hoiso on which rode ihe aged ami respectable person ( Mr. White- foot) whom thev robbed, was wilfully and malici- ously cut, so that, afler losing his property, he was put in danger of losing his life from not having it in his power to manage an unruly animal, had the one he rode been of lhat description. It is, however, almost impossible to expect lhat those who have used unnecessary cruelty, or put I loir victims in imminent danger without any apparent cause for so doing, will profit by any remarks of mine. Of Ibe petsons now before me, there is one ( Bedson), lo whom I am able lo offer some consolation. It turned out, upon Ihe testimony of numerous most respectable persons, lhat his former life had been exemplary and irreproach- able, and charily would induce us to suppose that by some unaccountable and temporary infatuation, l\ e was templed to commit lhat crime which there is no doubt he did commit, though it is possible be at the time thought he might be able to make restitution; Ihe. prosecutor and jurymen have recommended bim lo mercy ; and he may rely upon his life being spared ; a representation shall be made to his Sovereign ; and I he fountain of Royal mercy i* always ready lo extend its grace to those for whom an application can with pro- priety be made. Would lo God 1 could say any thing in favour of Ihe other prisoners before me ! 1 shall, however, look anxiously into all their cases.- But at this moment I would advise ihem lo make the utmost use ofthe short lime allotted to fhem to make their peace with an offended God. We are just on Ihe eve of Ihe Sabbath ; and J would entreat the prisoners before me to do, w hai it w ill perhaps be the first time for a long period most of them have done, thai is, to keep iioly the Sabbath- day, and humbly lo implore, through llie merits of a gracious Redeemer, lhat pardon for their past errors, which it is impossible ihey can receive in this life, which must so shortly be closed. I shall nol dwell further on this point, as you will have ihe best assistance of a person much better qualified, from his profession and habit*, to aid you in seeking everlasting peace. 1 shall therefore proceed to pass the sentence of the law, io 1 he words of that law, namely, that you be r; tcii of you taken from hence lo Ihe place from whence you came, and from llience, at the usual time, to ihe usual place of execution, and thai you be- severally hung by Ihe neck until yon be severally dead ; and may the Lord have mercy on your souls !" Thc fallowing cass was tried before Mr. Justice Richardson, on Saturday : — TiroMAS FARIVSEH ( bom at Much Wenlock), J. WATIUNS ( an IRISHMAN), and RICHARD ED- \ VARDR, from nt ar Osweshy, wcrechaiged with having wilfully, maliciously, and unlawfully cut or itiibixd Mr. Thomas Williams, at Church St ret i in, on Ihe 15th of December lasl. Thomas Williams, the prosecutor. In October er November I was employed to work at a carding mill, in Si: Hon, vfhere the prisoners woiked. On the 151 h of Dei ember, as I vvas going up the steps to fhe Raven Inn, l heard ibe prisoner Watkins mention my name, on which 1 slackened my pace, and heard him sav," D- uTom Williams, I would Mab lim myself.'* Previous ly we had been upon good terms. On entering the house, I looked over ihe skreen, . lo see who was with liim, and saw John Green, Richard Edwards, . andThomas Farmer. I then retired, and went to Mrs. MiHs's, the Lion Jnn, 40 or 50 yards higher up the street, and called for a pint of ale and a pipe ; about half an hour after, Edwards came iu and asked me how I did, and 5 and Edwards drank together, and Watkins and Farmer came in soon afier. When the Iwo hitter came in, Edwards turned from me, and the prisoners all talked together. Edwards asked me to tell him tbe value of ihe machine, the rent, & c. at Slrelton, but I refused ; and they used very irritating language. In consequence of which, I struck Farmer a back- handed blow iu the face. IVafkins jumped up, and said, " now my lads, now we have him ; slick lo him, and we will do him." They nil rose up, closed round me, and stood in an attitude of fighting, when Mr. Jon. Mills laid hold of Wat kins, and said, " you walk out of my house," and turned him out. The others went out immediately, threatening aud challenging me to come out. Watkins was par- ticularly violent. This lasted about 10 minutes, and then the sheet became quiet. In a quarter of an hour they returned to the door, and again challenged me : I can swear to Watkins's voice. About 10 o'clock I went out to go home, and as 1 turned round the corner by the granary at the Crown tun, I heard a voice ( which I believe to be that of'Mr. Milia's boy) say," mind, Mr. Williams, take care, here is one of I hem I immediately turned round, and Farmer rushed out from behind the slops, and I felt his hand against my side. I I bought it was a blow and slaunched from it a bit, nnd he fell on his face. I felt Ihe blood run down warm into my breeches, and put my hand within my shirt, and my fingers went into t he cut. I con- sidered whether I had better go 011 or return, and set out to return, but felt a numbness in my hip, and leaned a bit against the corner, after which 1 went back as well as I could, and in tbe street tnet William Dornell, who helped mc into the Lion, aud 1 was put to bed, and remained about ten days or a fortnight. Farmer ran away imme. dialely on getting up afler he struck me. Cross- examined by Mr. Pearson— I did not see moon or stars, but 1 could see well enough to discriminate one man from another. Never had said that Ihe wound was inflicted wilh a case knife; nor thai I had knocked the man who struck me into the pool. By Mr. Bather— 1 had been on good terms with Farmer, aud we drank out of each other's mug. When I si ruck Farmer, at the Lion, the other prisoners rose, and put themselves in an altitude of boxing. Martha Jones, servant at the Raven, stated, that she knew all the prisoners; they all came with John Green lo her master's house about six o'clock on the 15th of December, aud drank tbere until about nine, when they all went away to- gether. They asked, if Mr. or Thomas Williams was there, and I said 110; Thomas Farmer asked if 1 was sure he was not there, and said he should be glad » o see him, not having done so a long time. Afler going away for a while they came again, aud said they had had words with Williams nt Mills'*, ofthe Lion, and would have him up at the Justices'meeting. They had only one pint amongst them this time, and they went away about ten o'clock. Mr. Mills said bis mother kept Ihe public liouse called the Red Lion, in Church Stretton ; saw I lie prisoners there on the 15th of December ; Edwards came first, and the others after; they sal together. 1 heard words amongst Ihem, something about thc mill, but I do nol know what. I saw Williams strike Farmer a back- handed blow till the blood came out of his mouth. The prisoners then all got up to surround Wil- liams ; I turned Watkins out and the others followed. I heard a noise in the street soon afler, and went out of doors, hut thc persons who made the hoise went away, and it was so dark T could not lei! who they were: nor should I have known ihem hatl they been nearer. After a noise al ihe door, J tan out and took hold of. William Lewis, not knowing him, it was so dark.; and al abonl 100 yards distance from the Crowti bin granary steps, I met Hie piisoner Watkins, and took hold of him, but he scuffled out of my grasp; W. Durreil came up aud said, " a person has been slabbed." Wilne.- s ami Durnell then look Wat- kins on Ihe way towards Ihc school. Cross examined.— ll was too dark to distinguish Ihe features ofa man's face. The season was wet, and had any man fallen flat on the ground, his person must have been dirty. The factory where the prisontiu lived was in the road where Watkins was taken. The next; witness was William Durnell.— Afi he came out of Mr ' Mills's, he heard . a voice say,— " we'll fix him !" and near Mr. Bray's corner heard a clapping of bauds, and some person said, 44 now lads stick true." Could not say who Ihe persons were, although only iwo yards from ( hem. It was very daik. Whert he met with Mr. Mills, he loid l. im a man had been stabbed, Watkius heard this, and ran ; tbey secured him. William Morris, aged about 12, apprentice lo Mrs. Mills, of Slrelton, was questioned by ihe Judge, as to his knowledge of she nature of an oath, and gave satisfactory answers. He said he went out of the house after Mr. Williams, and saw, near the Crown Pool, three men standing up against the wall. Was about 20 yards distant, bnt could not tell who ihey were. Witness s; iid, " there is one of tliem, mind, Mr. Williams," Mr. Williams went up to the man; and soon after- wards fell. Cross- fxanvined by Mr. Pearson.— Would nol Swear he was more than half a dozen yards from tbe wall when he saw lite ihree men standing aaaiint it. The man then went away towards the School*. William Lewis, saw a man run up near the pool, towards the School*, whom he supposed to be Waikins, and it did prove to be Watkiris, when Mr. Durnell look him iu custody. Saw ihe prison, ers afterwards at Ihe Raven Inn, and Edwards appeared as if he had fallen down in the dirt, and was very tipsy, James Edwards, constable, found a small pen- knife upon the prisoner. Farmer, next morning. ( It was produced in court). Did not pe » reive any blood upon it when betook it from prisoner. Mr. Wilding, surgeon, of Stretton, who at- tended ihe wounded man, described the wound as a slab under ihe ribs ou the left side, itscb deep, L2\ lung, and carried forward towards Ihe navel : witness attended him daily for some lime, and aflerwards dressed the wound every 2 days or 3 da\ s. Williams was in great danger nine days. Mr. Wilding said the wound might have been it fliclcd with ihe pen- knife now pio- dtired, or by auy other small sharp knife. Mr. John Beddoes said, that on the Sunday afler this catastrophe, he went to see Williams, when Fanner ( ihen in custody at the Inn) re- quested wil ness to ask Williams to make it up, so lhat he ( Farmer) might be released. Williams objected to make it up. When witness told Fat mer Ihe rcsull of his communication, Farmer said, " Mr. Beddoes, 1 am but iu oue fault— making use of Ihe instrument." Several witnesses ( some of whom had known Farmer at Broseley, from his childhood) spoke of him as a peaceable and kind- hearted man. The jury consulted a few moments, and returned a verdict of GUILTY against Farmer. ( NOT GUILTY in favour of Waikins and Edwards.) SIR J. RICHARDSON then said," It now remains for me to perform my duty towards you for ihe crime of wjiich you are now found Guilty.— Dis- putes may arise, and quarrels may ensue • and to determine Mich quarrels, it has ever been the prac- tice of Englishmen to decide Ihem in a manly way, L « y fighting, or some olher way ; but for a man to be armed wilh a knife, prepared to commit Ihe crime of a; sas& ination, has hitherto, thank God, been almost unknown in this Country ; and ihis is a Infos l ihe fust ' attempt I ever heard of, and Ihe first it has heen my lot to try in this county ; and if ' deat h had ensued, ibis would have amounted to the crime of assassination. 1 should not be per- forming my duty, if I held out to yon any hopes cf the'sentence I am going to pass on you net being carried into execution ; therefore, the shoi t lime that remains to you in tltis woiiO, 3 trust you will employ in endeavouring lo procure l hat, happiness which may be found in another "— His Lordship theu passed sentence in the usual terms. The Prisoner said—" I know I did not say so- thai I used the instrument. I have been led into a quan t I, but I know not how. 1 have been pro- nounced guilty of a crime which hiliw nothing of; and if I am to suffer tor il, 1 thank God I am prepared ; but I hope to God you w ill shew rneicy to me, aud that lies iu your power." while he was on the shafts • when I took hold of Inm mv stick was in my right hand ; I am sure 1 never touched him with it intentionally or unintentionally ; when he laid hold of my coat. I struck at him ; I will not swear 1 struck hint then, for my horse was plunojng, and be pulling at my coat; some of the blows I struck at hint might have touched him, hut I do not know that they did ; upon my oath, I do not know whether the stick reached him or not; I in- tended the blows shonld bit him; when I got disengaged, I rode off. This happened on Saturday ; and on Monday I sent my servant to lay an inform-, alion before the Magistrate's-' for riding on the waggon, and he was fined for it; I also laid au information for the assault ; Jones's master paid the fine for him, and Jones was sent to gaol for the assault. When examined on lhat occasion, I posi- tively said I did not strike bim. Re- examined by Mr. Corbett— During all the time I struck at him be had hold of my coat, and my horse plunging, and I never had struck at him before. Miss F. Owen examined by Mr. Pearson.— I was riding with my father on the day in question; I saw defendant get out of ihe waggon on tbe shafts ; before he got out Mr. Owen had asked him whose waggon it was, and be refused to tell; Mr. Owen then rode to see the place where' the name is painted, and the man got out of the waggon on the shafts before llie name. I saw Mr. Owen put his hand on the man's shoulder; he used no violence on that occasion, and said at the time be did it to see tbe name ; the man then doubled his fists, and shook them at IVi. r. Owen, and soon after loid the boy to get out of ihe waggon, aud when out he threw him ihe whip,. and told him to lay 011 tbe horses, which be did, and they began to move ; my father then told me to go on, and I saw no more. During ail the time I did not see Mr. Owen slrike ihe waggoner, or offer to do so, or u^ e any violence ; he overlook me a short time after, and his coat was all torn. Cross- examined by Mr. Campbell.— Mr. Owen passed the waggon first, and 1 followed close behind ; T stopped when my father stopped, and remained there till he told me to go on; the waggoner was in the waggon, and remained there after my father spoke to him, and then came outside. When on the shafts I saw my father lay hold of him by the breast ; he had not hold of him a second ; did not hear the waggoner say any thing to my father, and my father said nothing to him, but about the name, and afler- wards " strike if you dare;" my falher was then close by the waggon, and within reach; 1 do not remember seeing my falher strike at the lime ; I saw my Either strike the. horses to stop them ; 1 was gone before ihe man jumped down ; when my father had hold of the man the boy was in ihe waggon. Thomas Johnson— is constable ; 1 went 10 summon defendant to come before tbe magistrates; the coat produced I bad from Mr. Owen, also I lie slick ; I summoned Jones tothe magistrates; on summoning him, Jones said, " I challenged him a many times, and if he makes me pay I will challenge him again the first time I meet him." On coming to gaol, I said to him, " if Mr. Owen's coat had not torn you would have pulled him oft' his horse;" and he said, " I did not mean to pull hiin by the coat, hut by the leg, and pull him oft', and then lay on him." Cross- examined by Mr. Campbell — Am workman to Mr. Owen ; Jones said the Esquire had laid hold of him hy his breast; he did not say to me at any time that Mr. Owen had struck him ; I took tbe defendant twice to gaol to Osweslry; the conversation was when I brought him to Shrewsbury; and he never said Mr. Owen had struck him. The Judge here suggested a compromise, which the Counsel for ihe prosecution mentioned to Mr. Campbell, but which he refused in the most peremp- tory manner, declaring that nothing 011 earth should irtd'uee him to compromise it. On being informed Ihe suggestion came from the Judge, he said he was not aware of that, or he should not have expressed himself so strongly ; be, however, would not coin- promise it on any account. Mr. Campbell then made a most energetic address tothe Jury on behalf ofthe prisoner: in which he commented with much force and ingenuity upon Ihe evidence adduced for the prosecution, contending that the first assault was committed by the prose- cutor, and that his client would consequently be entitled to their verdict, as what he. had done was in self- defence. lie called no witnesses, except to the man's character, which was an excellent one. The Judge then summed up ; and in doing so told the Jury to dismiss from their minds all that took place upon tbe shafts, Mr. Owen having a right to see the name, and the man acting illegally in prevent- ing- him. It would then remain for them to consider whether the man, at ihe time Mr. Owen was stopping the horses, as mentioned in the evidence, acted in self- defence when he leaped from the shafts, and took hold iif Mr. Owen by the coat; and particularly so,, coupling lhat wilh the conversation stated by the constable ( if they believed him) to bave taken place beUveen him and the prisoner. The Jury, after a very short consideration, returned a verdict of NOT GUILTY.

She. further said be appeared about 70 years of age [ at which time he could not have been more, than 53J ; and gave a description of the gentleman's person, for the purpose of proving it was Mr. Jones himself. In this part, however, her evidence was not given in that satisfactory manner which the previous part had been ; and in some points, such as bis being marked with thc small pox and wearing a waistcoat with flaps, she was flatly contradicted by the testimony of the Rev. Mr. Beans, vicar of Llantisilio.— John Langford, of Llangollen, stated that his mother and the late Esquire Were two second cousins on the female side; that the late Dr. Langford, of Eton College, was his first cousin; that about 14 or 15 years ago be had a petition written by tho parish clerk of Llangollen, with which he applied to the Esquire for relief to carry him to London to see his cousin; that the Esquire replied he had himself got a relation in London who was a coachmaker, and had failed and become poorish ; that he had lately been in London seeing him ; that he was a first cousin to his father, and that he had given him five pounds or five guineas ( witness could not say which), and a guinea for every child he saw in the house; that . cf ft' S' S' S' g s to t?^ V ^ to ~ c b s. • • tlien, out of tl] f rents, & n. of remainder, to bring np his daughter Mary Anne Goodwin, and Iiis natural son John Goodwin, and, on their attaining- the age of • 21, to pay each of them £ 200, wilh the farther power of raising any sum not exceeding £ 50 to put his said natural son out apprentice ; and subject to Ihe above trusts he devised tbe same property to his wife for her life, and after her death to his said son and daughter, as tenants in common and not as joint tenants, wilb benefit of survivorship. The daughter died in May, 1813, and Ibe son in 1816; nnd the plaintiff claimed as heir- at- law of the widow, in whom his Counsel said the fee simple vested, nnd that after her death tbe son and daughter only held an equitable estate.— The Judge observed, after the opening of tbe case, that a more iniquitous nnd unrighteous one was certainly never opened ; the defendant admitted tbe execution of the will, aud that the wife died seized of an estate in fee but not in fee simple ; also the deaths of the wife, daughter, nnd natural son ; and that the lessor of the plaintiff wns the heir- at- law of the widow.— On the part of the defendant, deeds of lease and release, bearing date the Island 2d December, 17R6, and made between the testator and Wm. Keene, Gent of Stafford, were put in, by which he conveyed certain esta'es in Staffordshire, with the property now in dispute, to Mr. Keene, for tbe purpose of paying off certain mortgages, and for other purposes therein mentioned. By these deeds the legal estate was taken out of tho* testator, and consequently never passed to his wife under the will.— Verdict for Defendant. No. 10. Rex v. Allen and others.— A few year* ago, an Act of Parliament was passed for inclosing Leaton Heath, and among other parts thereof a cottage and abont two acres of land, occupied by defendant, was awarded by the Commissioners to they were the nearest relations he had living; and I J. A. Lloyd, Esq. the Lordof Ibe Manor, who, after that if he had any money to spare, it was fitter lo J offering defendant a lease for three lives, was oblioed give it to them than to witness.— A seal was also i to bring an action of ejectment to obtain possession produced by A. M. Jones, which she said she had ; to which no defence vvas made. After obt ' ' * Thc case of Edward Jones, charged with hav- ing violently assaulted William Owen, Esq. came on for I rial in fhe Nisi Prius Comt, on Saturday. Wm. Owen, Esq. examined by Mr. Coibelt.— Besides at Woodhouse ; on ihe 12ih of January last was riding out with his daughter Frances, with whom he had been at Ellesmere ; in returning to Wood- bouse, they went near the village of Tetchill, and be- tween Ellesmere and Tetchill overtook a waggon on the road, vyith the waggoner and a boy in it; the waggoner was the defendant Jones. When I came up to tbe waggon it was a narrow part of lhe road, and, as 1 saw both the waggoner and the boy in the waggon, I apprehended danger. 1 called to my daughter to follow me, and she did. As I passed the waggon, I called to thc waggoner to get out of the waggon, to which he replied " I don't know whether I shall or no." I then rejoined, " I think I know whether you will or not, for if you do not you will pay for il ;" and as soon as I passed the horses I stopped them, and again called to the waggoner to get out of his waggon, but he did not do so. I then advanced to the shafts, and asked whose waggon it was, and lie slipped over the front of it, and covered ihe name with his body and his smock frock. I then put my hand upon him, but not with violence, and said, " come, lei me see lite name on tbe waggon;" lie then doubled his fists, and put them nearly in my face; I told him to strike if he dare, bnt he did not, and I did not offer to strike him. The horses begin- ning to move, 1 returned to their head, and stopped them again by putting my stick in their faces. He then ordered the boy to get out of the waggon ; aud as soon as the boy vvas down he said to me, 44 there is one down— is not that enough ?" I said " No: I must see that name on the waggon before you stir." He then threw Ihe whip to the bov, and desired him to lay on ( meaning, as I supposed) the horses. The boy did begin to whip the horses, and I desired my daughter to go away I tried to stop the horses ; whell the man leaped from the shafts and ran lo me with great force, caught hold of ine by the coat, and pulled with much force; he tore my coat entirely through the shoulder down to the hoi torn. When he bad hold of my coat I struck at him wilh my stick, and did not atiempt to strike before. 1 struck him in order to disengage myself, he having at ibe time hold of tiie coat. Tbe coat gave way, and I disen- gaged myself from hiin; he then followed me, i abusing me, and wanting me to fight; I then rode away with my daughter. Cross- examined by Mr. Campbell.— Thc constable lias tbe stick and the coat; I did not know whose waggon it was; there was room to ride by, and I did ride by ; my daughter rode by before the altercation began ; I had no difficulty in riding by, and I believe my daughter had none ; I took the widest side of ihe road; I did strike the horses to stop them ; I might have struck them half a dozen times, but. uiy belief is I did not strike them so many ; 1 did not slrike the horses before the whip vvas thrown to the hoy; I stopped them first by holding my stick before them ; the man bad on a smock frock ; cannot tell whether he had a coa? on under or not. I put tny band on him, and took hold of his smock frock, but not to pull it violently; had not hold of him half a minute. I said to the man, 44 come, let me see that name ;" I don't, think he saitl any thing to ntc ; he held up his fists to mc, but did not strike, as I told him to slrike if he dated ; I did not hear him say, " I will strike if you do not loose ine ;" I will swear he did not say so. After 1 loosed him he still stood upon the'shafts hiding ihe natne. There was nothing to prevent me riding away : the horses were beginning to move, nnd 1 stopped Iheni again ; the boy " had not alighted at that time; I stopped them again ; the man then told ihe boy to get out of the waggon ; 1 should think the boy was about 12 years old ; the boy stood on the oue side the horses, and the man flung him rhe whip. As soon as thc boy began to whip the horses, I struck thein with my stick in the face; when I was striking the horses to stop them, Jones came down and ran at me, and laid hold of my coat; I was then close by the side of the horses, stopping them ; he first laid hold of mv coat; I don't know that lie gave me any blow at all; he tried lo pull me off my horse, and 1 struck him; I positively never struck or touched hint with my stick CALENDAR.

No. 1. Nicholson v. Webster,— Tn 1821, the plaintiff obtained a judgment on a cognovit against a person of the name of Owen, for £ 31. 7s. and £ 8. 8s. costs; and, in execution of such judgment, a writ of Fi. Fa. was sued out against Owen's effects, but none were obtained, a capias ad satisfaciendum was therefore had against I is body. The plaintiff's attorney sent the capias to Mr. H.' R. Williams ( the Under Sheriff), who vvas clerk to his father, Mr. Rumsey Williams; arid this action was brought against the Under Sheriff to recover the above sums, amounting to £ 39. 15s. on the ground that Owen had been taken into custody and afterwards left at liberty, previously to his being lodged in the gaol at Beaumaris. It appeared that Mr. J. Pritchard, clerk to Mr. R. Williams, vvas one of the persons named in the Sheriff's warrant, and that he took a letter from Williams to Owen, which be delivered personally, having at ihe same lime the warrant to arrest in his possession ; lhat Owen, in pursuance of that letter, was to go to Beaumaris gaol, nnd was to go as far as Bangor Ferry either by the mail or upon Pritchard's horse,— he went, however, by the mail, and Pritchard rode on horse- back ; from tbe Ferry they went together in a chaise, and, on arriving at Beaumaris, Pritchard left Owen at the Inn whilst be went to tbe gaol to order a bed for him, and immediately on returning there- from, produced the warrant anil arrested him; after w hich he never lost sight of him until he was safely lodged in gaol. The plaintiff endeavoured to make out lhat Pritchard hatl at some time or place ( previous to their arrival at Beaumaris and his leaving Owen at the Inn) either shewn him the warrantor told him he was come to lake him lo gaol, but this could not be proved. Verdict for Defendant. No. 2. Doe dem. Elkes v. Harper.— An action of ejectment to recover possession of a cottage and small piece of land, at Hough Lane, hear Wem. About 30 years ago, the plaintiff bad two cottages at tbe above place, one occupied by a person ofthe name of Ebrey, the other by George Lylh. The first bad a small garden to it, but Lyth's bad none, he, therefore, by direction of tbe plaintiff ( who satis- fied him for his trouble) enclosed a long narrow slang which was waste land by the side of ihe lane, and converted it into a garden, and fenced it round with posts and rails antl dead thorns, in which state he afterwards left it. It was then vacant for one year, afler which the defendant came inlo possession, and during sucb possession more land was enclosed by him. He also erected a cole to keep a cow in on the land inclosed by Lyth, and, within these few years, converted the cote inlo a cottage, in which he now resides, and of which, after due notice, he refused to give up possession on the ground that tbe land on which it. vvas erected was inclosed by himself from the waste land, antl in support thereof produced several witnesses, who spoke to its being open land, and made use of as a shooting butt and place to play in, subsequent to Lyth leaving it. It appeared, how- over, that the defendant himself had saitl that the plaintiff once came into the garden, and while there asked why he did not fill up the gutter and cut down some poplars ( which divided it from other inclosed land), to which the defendant replied, " that land does not belong to you, 1 gave Buttry tbe tapping of a pair of shoes a- year for it, and when he left he sold received from her falher just before his death, and that on giving it lo ber he said it might be of some service to lier by antl bye. This seal appeared an ancient oue, antl was represented as a family seal— the arms on it were three horses' beads, with the initials of D. J. within the escutcheon ; and a person of tbe name of Foulkes was called to shew that ihe arms were tbe same as those on the dexter side of the escutcheons on the monuments of the Llantisilio family. The witness, however, knew nothing of heraldry ; and the drawing made from ibe monument bad a chevron between the horses' heads.— Mr. Jer- vis then addressed tbe Jury at considerable length, and with his usual eloquence, on behalf of the defendant, in doing which he animadverted verv strongly on the testimony of the plaintiff's sister anil Langford. Evidence was afterwards adduced to prove that David, the son of Evan and Ellen his wife, was bom on the 10th November, 1693, conse- quently at tbe time Mrs. Rushcroft spoke of him as being about 80 years of age, he must have been 90. An indenture* of apprenticeship was also produced, by which it appeared that Davitl, the son of Evan Jones and Ellen his wife, of Llanloddian, was bound apprentice to Mr. John Watking, soapboiler, of Bristol, and Rachael his wife, on the 1st of August, 1711, for seven years; and the Corporation books, brought to confirm the same, proved that in 1718 he vvas admitted to his freedom in that city.— Bv the evidence of Mr. Beans before- mentioned, who/ with few exceptions, spent every Saturday night and Sunday at the late Mr. Jones's, and who never heard him say a word about his relations in London, it appeared that he was a very reserved man, and that when the plaintiff vvas down in the country some time back, be ( the plaintiff) told witness he had given instructions to a Mr. Jones respecting a claim he hatl to the Ynysyinaengwyti eslate; and that it was through Counsellor Owen or his relations that he claimed it.— Mr. Puller then replied with much energy and ingenuity ; after which his Lordship summed up, and in doing so he accompanied the evidence with such observations as the nature of it required or necessarily gave rise to. The principal point was, however, as to the identity of David Jones, respecting which, be said, it was requisite that, they should be perfectly satisfied. It seemed singular that a person who was in the clearest possible man- ner proved lo have served his apprenticeship to a soapboiler in Bristol, and afterwards ( in 1718) have taken up his freedom there, should, in 1734, be mar- ried at Shrewsbury, and turn coachmaker; and in the register of such marriage there was nothing to shew who tbe Davitl Jones was, or from where lie came : nor did it appear that. Mr. Jones ever spoke to his most intimate friends upon the subject of hav- ing such relations as the plaintiff or iiis father in London. If, however, they believed the whole of the testimony of the plaintiff's sister and Langford, and were satisfied respecting it, plaintiff would be entitled to their verdict; if not, then the defendant would ; or if lliey had any doubts upon the question, in such case the defendant was entitled to the benefit of such doubt.— After a few minutes' consultation the jury requested leave to adjourn, which was granted, anil after upwards of two hours' consideration, gave a verdict for the Defendant. * An objection was taken by Mr. Campbell to this being read; but it was over- ruled. such possession in November, 1820, the defendant* in February, 1821, re- entered, arid forcibly kept possession: this, therefore, vvas a prosecution for a misdemeanor so committed. It was, however, most honourably agreed to by Mr. Lloyd, that on acknow- ledging his tille, & e. the defendant should have n lease of the property in question, at 40s. per annum. Verdict for Plaintiff. No. 11. Botevyle v. Harris.— An action to recover tbe sum of £ 14. 15s. the value of a horse and £ 13. 2s 6d for the keep of it, on the ground that at the time of the purchase by plaintiff it was warranted sound. John Williams and Thomas Allen, for the plaintiff, swore positively to tbe fact of the Mortality whilst a person of ibo liame of Rees, who si. hi the horse for the defendant, swore ns positively lhat nr> such warranty Was ever given. Verdict for Plaintiff £' 14.15s. for tbe horse, and £ 10 for Ihe keep. No. 12.— Allen v. Pom.— The plaintiff is lessee of the tithes of the parish of Llandinam, for whieh he pays Ihe Dean and Chapter of Ranger £ 1134 pPr annum, including £ 18 6s. 4d. for land- lax ; and Ihis was an action lo recover from Ihe defendant £ 04 10s. Od. being the value of Ibe ti'he of hay and agistment for nine years ( that of corn, lamft, ami wool having been before paid.) The lease was put in and prored, as well ns a promise of tbe defend- ant's, that if tbe plaintiff would not include him in , hill in Chancery which he bad filed against four or five olber persons, be would, on their paying the hay and agistment tithe, pay il liimseif. The pi. rlirs if> tbe defence of that bill,' after going to a considr ruble expense, submitted, and paid sucb lilbes ; hut ihe defendant, instead of doing lhat, put the plaintiff tiy the necessity of bringing ibis nclion ; as a defence lit w hich he put in ibe general receipts for tilhe he bad received on paying that for corn, lamb, and wool.— Verdict for Plaintiff. No. 4. Hughes v. Jones and Morgan,— This wns an action to recover £ 1(> 1 due from the defendants, to which Jones hail suffered judgment lo go by default. Ilnppeared that iu 1815, Jones and Morgan, nnd a person of the name of Roberts, entered into partnership as tobacco and snuff, manufacturers, al Holywell. Morgan, who resided at and was port- snrvevor at Bristol, advanced £ 1000, Roberts £ 250, and Jones to be Ihe woiking partner. Roberts subsequently gave notice of quilling Ihe partnership, nnd sold his one fifth share to Morgan for £ 280. In 1820, Jones, in whose name the business was carried on, became bankrupt, and the defendant, Morgan, bnd been under Ihe necessity of pay ing ihe partner- ine that land for a pair of shoes; thus, as the Judge > ship debts, which be had most honourably done. nlicnrvc. l t- ii- illir ml I. n^ iv In.!... iur tl.- il tin.

In December, 1821, the late Thomas Jones, Esquire, of l. lantisilio Hall, in tbe county of Den bigh, died intestate, leaving a very large estate, to which his heir- at law is entitled. Ou his death the defendants, who were related to him, came into possession, and this action was brought to recover from them the possession of that part of the property called the Llanloddian eslate, which is situate near f. lanfair, in tbe county of Montgomery, and worth upwards of £ 1000 per annum. The plaintiff claimed Ihe property in question as heir- at- law, and as being descended from a person of the name of David Jones, wbo was the third surviving son of Evan Jones and Ellen bis wife, the common ancestor of the late Mr. Jones, of Llantisilio ( who was descended from tbe eldest son), of Ibe plaintiff, and of Ibe defendants, who derhe their descent from Esther, lhe elder daughter of the above Evan and Ellen Jones, and which Esther, in their lifetime, married a person of the name of George Devereux.— The plaintiff's coun- sel, in staling his case, observed that the defendants being in possession of Ihe estate, it would be suffi- cient for Ihem merely lo negative the evidence of those who claimed the property without shewing any right or title they had to it themselves.— In support of the plaintiff's case, tbe last will and codicil of Evan Jones were produced from the registry of St. Asaph, by which il appeared, that at tbe time of making such will and codicil ( the former dated Ihe last of April, 1711, and the latter tbe lst of August, 1714), tbe said Evan had then one daughter, Esther, then married as above- mentioned, Thomas bis eldest son. nnd fouryoungersons, Morgan, David, Vanghan, and Evan. A variety of extracts from the parish registers of Llanfair, Llantisilio, Osweslry, St. Alk- mond's ( Shrewsbury), Paddington, Chipping Barnelt, St. James's ( Westminster), St. Giles's in the Fields, and Wildsdon, were produced and read, to shew the births, marriages, and burials of the different persons in plaintiff's line of descent from Evan and Ellen. To some of these, however, there was not any entry, olber than the mere natne of the parties, and this in particular applied to the marriage of David Jones with Anne Cole nt St. Alkmond's, in this town, iu 1734, and the identity of whicb parties was absolutely necessary to support the claim of the plaintiff, who contended that the David thus married at Shrews- bury ( and from whom, by the registers before- men- tioned and parole evidence, he clearly traced his descent) wns Ibe David Jones mentioned in the will ns being one of tbe younger sons of Evan and Ellen. In proof that be was so, aad that the late Mr. Jones, of Llnntisilio Hall, considered tbem as near relations, witnesses were called, and upon this point Mrs. Rushcroft, aunt on the mother's side to the plaintiff, said thai she came to London about tbe year 1778 ; that about two years aud a half afterwards Richard Jones, the father of tbe plaintiff, a eoaebmaker by- trade, who afterwards failed in business, married her sister, Susannah Harrisnn ; that after sucb marriage she had seen Richard's father, David, who she under- stood was also brought up a coachmaker, come to The question in this case was, whether the mouey lent by plaintiff was lent to Jones on bis own private ncconnt or on the partnership account. To prove it was on the partnership account, a small book was produced, in which tbe sums lent nt various limes bv tbe plaintiff were entered, sometimes in tbe hand- writing of Jones nnd sometimes iu that of Jones's brother. It was, however, singular that this hook was always kept locked np, and was the only hook so kepi, nor did it appear that Morgan ever had access to it, whilst all the olher books were kept on tbe desk. Another book was produced, in which money laken to or had from the bauk was entered, and from this several entries were read, to shew that the sums entered in the hook kept locked up were entered as being taken to the hank nnd used on account of the partnership ; and Jones's brother said the money was so applied. Verdict for Plaintiff. No. 5. Severne v. Bishton.— An action to recover compensation for in juries done lo three farms belong- ing to Ihe plaintiff, which the defendant had occupied up to Lady- day 1821. Immediately after tbe plaintiff's counsel bad opened his case, and tbe examination of witnesses had commenced, an arrangement look place, we believe at the suggestion of the Judge, to refer it to a gentleman ut ihc bar; when it was slated by defendant's counsel that he bad before proposed to refer the ease for arbitration. It was therefore agreed that, a Verdict should be given for tbe Plaintiff for £ 3000, subject to such reduction as Sir. Serjeant Peake should think it right to make after hearing tbe evidence on both sides. No. 7. Williams v. Roberts and others. An nclion brought by the plaintiff, who is a millwright at Carnarvon, against Roberts and several other persons who form a mining company in that neigh- bourhood, to recover the sum of £ 20. Is. Od.-. £ 17.5s. of it being a contract for making two wheels, and the remainder for work on one olher wheel at 3s. 6d. per day. Evidence adduced proved plaintiffs doing the work in question, and some of the partners stating what he was to have for it, and also their saying he ought to have had his money long before. It appeared, however, that it was tbe partners resid- ing in the neighbourhood of Ruthin who were against the money being paid. Tbe defendants contended lhat a person of the name of Cartwright ( who was one of ihe firm) had agreed with " he Company to make the wheels in question, and that whatever was due to plaintiff was due from Cart- wright himself and not from the Company. Tbe admissions of several of tbe defendants, however, to different persons, negatived thnt part, however true it might be. Verdict for Plaintiff £ 20. Is. 6d. No. 9.— Doe dem. Piclcin v. Goodwin— This was an action of ejectment to recover possession of an estate called Rom, ley Hall, In tbe parish of Alveley, in this connty. On the part of the plaintiff, the will of John Goodwin was put in, dated Sept. 27. 1797, hy which he gave and devised to bis wife, her heirs and nssigns, all his real and personal estates, and among others the one in question, in trust, first to pav his debts, and if bis personal estate was nnt sufficient, there was a power, hy sale, leases, or mort gages, to raise such money as might he necessary for thnt purpose; and after'paying offthe said debts, LATE DR.
