The following arc all ilic material points of this document — The Marquis of Londonderry has given not re lhat, on the 22d inst. lie shall submit a motion arising out of the Report. " Your Committee do not venture to determine, whether tlic present slate of the corn market be owing to an excess of production, or to what extent tt.; it excess may rejudt, beyond tiie usual and requi- site supply; or whether the necessities of the occu- piers of laud Cause an unprecedented eagerness to dispose of their produce nt Almost any price ; but it appears from an official Return, that the quantity of ltrilUll w In at nail oats ( but not of htlrlev) sold in Mark lane, between the 1st November and Isi March Inst, hits very considerably exceeded the quantity sold in the corresponding months of Ihe tweutv preceding years. uii ex. ess of supply beyond deniaitd can have no other effect than to continue the depression of price, and increase the acci ntulatlon of the stuck upon baud ; while it is evident, from the present verv low rule of price> 011 11.0 Continent of Europe, as compared with prides" in this country, that there is no chance of resorting to the natural expedient of relieving the market hy exporting any portion of our own" corn, even ' with the aid of any bounty which would not be excessive. u Two modes have been under the consideration of your Committee; by the first of which it was proposed,' that one million of Exchequer bills should he applied to purchasing, through the agency of Govern - cut, and laying up in store, a certain portion of wheat grown in the United Kingdom ; and by the second, that facility and encouragement should be offered to individuals to deposit a part of their stock- in warehouses, so that they might not be forced to Come in lo Ihe market simultaneously, and under the disadvantage of excessive competition, hut might he enabled to" wait until the supply having approached nearer to the wants of tiie consumers, might afford, if not a remunerating, at least u price somewhat less ruinous for their produce. t; For effecting this object, two different modes have been suggested; by one of which it was pro- posed, that when the weekly average price is under 58s ( ihe import scale remaining as at present) wheat should he stored, subject to the monthly allowance of 6d. per quarter, until the average should reach ( J5s. The whole quantity not to exceed 600,000 quarters, and the tinre for which the allowance should be payable hot to exceed 12 or 18 months. Not more than a certain number of quarters, nor less than another specified number of quarters, to be stored ou the part of any individual or firm. The owner ofthe corn so deposited to be at liberty to withdraw it at a iv time, waving his claim to allow- ance, or refunding it. " The other proposition was, for the purpose of relieving the glut which at. present presses upon the grain market, the Government, whenever the average price of wheat shall be under 60s. should grant advance* of money upon such corn of the growth of the United Kingdom, as should be deposited in ttt and proper warehouses upon the River Thames, and in the p i ts to be hereafter specified, to an extent not exceeding two thirds of the market value of such eon.; the quality, of the corn and the fitness of the warehouses to he approved of by Officers tobetrp- poin'ed by the Government. The loan to be at the rate of 3 per ccnt. and the period of deposit not to exceed 12 months. The corn to be withdrawn at the will of the depositor, upon payment of the interest, warehouse rent, and other charges. The sum of one million so applied would probably be fully adequate to give a temporary check to the excess which is continually poured into the already overstocked market 44 There is another measure also to which it is fit to call the attention of the Honse. The foreign grain aud flour in different warehouses under the King's lock, appears to have amounted, on the 5th January last, to 897,136 quarters; with regard to which, although there is little probability that it can soon th ult. and notice the rejection of the Russian ultimatum by Turkey; they mention, in addition, that Lord Strangford and the other Fo- reign Ambassadors were not expected to leave Constantinople, for their respective courts, until further instructions should be Sent them as to the hue of conduet to be pursued by each.

The accounts received this morning bring hideous details of fresh mur- ders, fresh barbarities, and fresh acts of violence and rapine.— The Limerick Chronicle'contains a long list of outrages, particularly robbing houses of arms, and serving notices upon the; occupiers lo quit their farms upon pain of death. In several of these cases the robbers were men dressed in women's clothes. opinion, that distress originated in the change of our currency. He knew of no remedy which could be adopted,, or any relief given during the. present Session, except what could be given by reducing taxation to the lowest scale it could be reduced con- sistent with good faith to the public creditor. This ought to he done immediately after the holidays, in- stead of adopting the fallacious recommendation of the Report to advance £ 1,000,000, or lo attempt to increase the prices. He contended that a revolution in the state of property had taken place in this conn try within these few years, as great, though not so violent, a-, that which hail taken place in France. By the change in our currency, and consequent distress, the land was reduced to £ 19,000,000, whilst the fund, ed property had increased in value, and the propor- tion exceeded 40 to 19. In this state of things, noth- ing but a measure striking at the root of the evil, in., stead of the paltry one now recommended, could give relief to the country. Mr. F. LEWIS ( a Member of the Committee) do- fended the Report, and endeavoured to clear it from, the charge of material omissions, hy contending that the subjects omitted, such, for example, as the alter- ation iu the currency, did not come within the scope of the enquiries presented to the Committee. Mr. WESTER^ also defended the Committee against the charge of wishing fo raise the price of com lo the consumer ; their object had been to prevent the country being inundated by foreign grain to the ruin of our own agriculturists. He feared, however, the measure proposed hv the Committee, would not have that effect; that the Report would only render the farmers more discontented than they were at present; and that the distress was so general and so oppressive, that some remedy must be found. He had, since last he addressed the House, conversed with several of his constituents, who were decidedly of opinion that he was well founded in the assertion he made on that occasion; namely, that two- thirds of the farmers of the county of Es'sex^ were insolvent. The depreeia- lion of the currency had been so great prior to 1815, that he believed the country would be obliged to re- trace its steps. All the distress of the country origin- ated in the measure of 1797, nnd was completed by Ihe Act of 1819, which attempted to convert our de- preciated currency, of 22 years accumulation, into the standard of 1797. It. was true, that the estates where Mr. Baron Garrow presided, finished about I six o'clock on Tuesday evening. There were 20 j prisoners for trial, of whom five received sentence of death, viz. Geo. and Jas. W ooers ( brothers), for stealing five sheep, the property of Rd. Mills ; Thos. Waters, for stealing ten sheep," the property of C. H. Leigh, Esq. of Pontypool Park ; Thos.

Mr. Bolland and Mr. Curwood are. also. candidates for the latter office, the filling up of which lies with the Common ConnclK-— An opposition to the elevation of Mr. Know! vs is hinted at, aud Sir James Mackintosh is mentioned as likely to be put in nomination as Recorder by some of theAldermen. It is calculated that the Silver Lead Mines now at work i; i Cornwall, and others about to com- mence, will, in a few years, raise sufficient silver for the use of the kingdom. At Sir Christopher Hawkins's mine iu th. it county, a plate of silver has been extracted which weighed nearly 400lbs. This mine produces two and sometimes three such pieces a month. His Majesty's revenue cruiser, Princeof Wales, Benjamin Oliver commander, arrived in Leith Roads on Saturday, 30tl) ult. with a large smuggling lug- ger, captured by her on the 25th nit. near the Orkney Islands, after a keen chace of three hours, he" Landed' PmrnVtors douldeiV in't'he course ' of j j" which his Majesty's revenue cutter, Royal Char that 22 years; bul so did their incumbrances, their '° tte. narlicmaled. l. andsonu debts, their expenses, and their taxes; aud now comes the conclusion— all their expenses and out- goings were continued at a double rate, hut their income was at uuce to be reduced one- half. Under this « tatp of thinjys, Jthp Landed Interest could not exist; but it was not only the Land Owners who thus suffered, hut all species of property was alike depressed ; aud ultimately, the labourer himself must suffer an equal reduction. Mr RtCARDO said, the landed property had heen stated at £ 40,000,000, of which the tenantry of the country paid a fourth in taxes, or £ 10,000,000. Now, previous to 1819, nothing was said of the excess which the tenantry paid ; and supposing the extravagant depreciation which the Hon. Member for Coventry ( Mr. Eilice) had contended for, had taken place, this would not impose more than £ 2,500,000 on the tenantry; and could that have occasioned all the distress which they now laboured under? He did not believe the alteration of the currency imposed more than a burthen of ten per cent, on'tiie country; this did not create the distress. In his opinion the cause was to be found in the very abundant harvests which we have recently had, and tli « abundant importation. He believed the country would soon recover itself when these causes ceased to exist.— The present distress of the West India Colonies plainly proved that the distress was not owing to the alteration in the currency, hut to over- production. The Hon. H. G. BENNET said, that in 1702 none heard but of ihe opulence ofthe country; what was the cause of the difference then and now, when , , . . - . r. prices were nearly the same? The cause was, that j Wit ham, Essex, miller.- nJohn Tomlinson, of Bed- the taxes, which then were 19 millions, amounted fordburv, St. Martin's- in- the- jields, Westminster, now to 56.

He knew persons who, from the fall in the price of land, and the alteration in the currency, had sunk from £ 3000 a year to £ 1000. Tbe great relief to the country must arise, from tying up the hands of the Tax- gatherer. The first creditor of the country was the plough ; and he ( Mr. Bennet) was prepared to come to a composition with the public creditor. He was confident he should live lo witness a similar arrangement proposed by the Noble Lord and the Right Hon Gentleman. He could only look at the Report as that of a Committee of Land- owners to raise the price of corn. The Marquis of LONDONDERRY thought that the discussion of to- night might have better been post- poned ; and that it might have heen reserved to a time when some practical measure might have been proposed. The last speaker wished to sound the country through the medium of its distress, whether it was prepared for a national bankruptcy, that must overwhelm all ranks in one common ruin. It was his ( Mr. B.' s) usual practice to impute every thing to the Government of the country— the state of the harvests, and the effect of former wars. He ( the Marquis) would never believe that injustice would find favour in a British heart. If all the taxes were swept away, they would afford no relief to agricul- ture. That, was the only portion of ihe community that suffered distress. In almost every branch trade and industry were iu full vigour. With that excep- tion the country was iu a state of prospeiity, and on the subject of agriculture, other nations were in a worse stale than ours. No nation ever derived relief from a national bankruptcy, and no prosperity could be permanent that was not founded in justice. The Petition was then read, and ordered to he printed.

The Funds have lately been much afieeted by the warlike reports respecting Russia and Turkey. Towards the close of the market on Saturday, Consols fell from 79 to 78| ; this morning, there is a con- siderable rally, and the price, early in the dav, was 78{ to 79.

Advices, dated the 8th of March, were received from Constantinople by way of Odessa. They are contained in letters ofthe 12th, from the latter place, and were brought by a vessel which arrived on the llth, having made Ihe voyage in three days.

This account may, we believe, be received with perfect confidence in its authenticity ; and it posst sses peculiar importance at this moment, by proving that the recent alarm has been wholly w ithout foundation. SHREWSBURY. WEDNESDAY, ARRIL 10, 1822, The remaining business of interest brought forward ou the Crown side at our late Assizes, in- cluding the trial of the parties convicted of the daring burglary at Mr. Rodenhurst's, of Cotton, will be found detailed in our 4th page.

JOHN JONES, of New- town, and Collections made in aid of the Fund, for the Support of Village Preaching.— Service in the morning a quarter before eleven, and in the even- ing at six o'clock.— The benevolence of the public is respectfully solicited, as the fund is about Seventy Pounds deficient. tenantry John White, Esq. of Chester, and of Lea and Sutton, Cheshire, has reduced his rents 20 per cent. At our Sheep aud Pig Fair, yesterday, there was a good supply of each. Prime fat Sheep averaged 4.| d. ; other sorts lower; and Ewes and Lambs were \ Cry dull of sale, as well as much lower in price than they were at the last Fair, Pi;:* were also lower. The Dean and Chapter of Hereford Cathedral have presented llie Rev. James Powell lo the Vicar- age of Long Stanton, in this county. The collection at the Church of St. Mary Mag- daiene, Bridgnorth, in aid of the Funds of lhe Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, after a sermon by the Rev. William Vickers, A. M. Rector of Chetton aud Glazeley, in. this. county, on Tuesday last, amounted lo upwards of £ 55.— After Divine Service a meeting was held in the Vestry, and it was unanimously agreed to form a District Committee of the said Society, to he called 44 THE BRIDGNORTH DISTRICT COMMITTEE," which was accordingly nominated, and 12 new members entered their names as annual subscriber. Daniel Williams, Luke Oliver, James Clarke, niid William Norgrove, for burglary, Joseph Price, for robbing- a dwelling house, and George James and John Turner, for highway robbery, who were left for execution, pursuant to their sentence at the late Assizes, received a respite, on Thursday last, until fuither orders. EXECUTION — On Saturday last, William Griffiths, one of the four men concerned in the burglary a! Mr. Rod en hurst's, of Cotton ( see 4th page), and Thomas Farmer, for stabbing Thomas Williams, at Church Stretton, were executed, pur- suant to their sentence, in front of our County Gaol. — The behaviour of these unhappy men was such as became their situation, and they met their fate with fortitude ; Farmer died instantly, but the sufferings of Griffiths were visibly protracted for some time after the drop fell.— Farmer was a young man much respected prior to the unfortunate occurrence for which he forfeited his life; his remains were interred at Church Stretton on Monday last, and the funeral ( which was conducted in a most decorous and affect- ing manner) was attended by a large concourse of persons. Committed to our County Gaol, Edward Howell, charged with feloniously stealing a copper tankard and other articles, the property of William Clarke, of Dudley; John Whifjield, charged . with ass Milting'and wounding Joseph Egerton, with in- tent lo kill or murder him ; William Pilsbnry, charged with burglariously breaking and entering the dwelling house of Joseph Icke, of Newport; Thomas Taylor, charged with feloniously entering the dwelling house of Jane Roberts, of Oswestry, and stealing a £ 1 note, wearing apparel, and other articles ; and Mar' 4 Buckley and Hannah Besford, charged with picking the pocket of Benjamin Dawes, at Newport, of a pocket book, containing four one- guinea notes, and four £ 1 notes.

SIR,— T wish, through the medium of your valuable Paper, to direct the attention of the Committee of Management for the improvement of your town to a practice heretofore prevalent at this season of the year, und which has again commenced, notwith- standing the repeated notices that have from time to time been issued by the Magistrates; namely, that of exhibiting Horses in the. Com Market every Saturday, to the manifest inconvenience of persons attending there ( indeed I might almost say to the total interruption of business for the time), as well as to the great danger uot only of them but of every individual who has occasion to pass thatway. By the Act of Parliament recently obtained, I find that the Committee have the power of fining any persou exhibiting such horses ( except where the Committee shall appoint, and I cannot for a moment think they would appoint the. centre and most crowded part of the town for that purpose), iu a penalty not exceeding forty nor less than ten shil- lings for the first offence, anil for the second and every subsequent offence five pounds. Trusting the observations 1 have made will induce the Committee to appoint a proper place, and, by exercising the powers in them vested, enable the farmers to transact their business without interruption or danger, 1 remain. Sir, your's, & c. April 6th, 1822. A FARMER. On Friday week, a County Meeting was held at • Lincoln, when a petition for. a reduction of taxa- tion, & c. was agreed' upon.— On Wednesday, a County Meeting was held at Huntingdon, at which a Petition for Parliamentary Reform was agreed to.

SaI> « « « trecent| y engaged an attorney and other persons to accompany them to the family vault where the re- mains of Mr. Jones were interred; having arrived there, this notable party actually exhumated the body of that gentleman, for the purpose of searching under his head for a will which the nocturnal reverie had instructed Hi em was there deposited ! For ibis barbarous and senseless violation of the sanctity of the torn!), Major Harrison, ihe representative of Mr. Jones ( being related by the female side, aud having taken possession of the estates) indicted the persons concerned, and the case was to have been tried at the present Assizes for Denbighshire ; but in cousequpuee of the parties implicated having pleaded guilty, and suffered a nominal penalty for the offence, the further prosecution of the matter wa » relinquished. At these Assize?, an Irishman, named Connor, was convicted ofa robbery near Wrexham, attended with so many circumstances of aggravation as to exclude him from any hope of mercy, and be was accordingly left for execution on the 15th instant. After the culprit was found guilty, one of the prosecutors solicited that he might have the honour of being his executioner, offering to perform lhat duty upon cheaper terms than any other hangman! — We need not say, that this relentless proposal was indignantly rejected by the Sheriff. Jury case, which caineon before a crowded Court ou Saturday last, about one o'clock. Mr. Ludlow ' opened. the pleadings ; after w hich Mr. Jervis staled the case for the plaintiff, w hich was one, he observed, that called upon the Jury to compensate, as far as pecuniary damages could compensate, for one of the mosl cruel injuries which could he inflicted on the female sex. The plaintiff in this case, Miss Mary King, was the only child of the manager of a very extensive and respectable manufactory, at Dursley, in this county, and was now about 32 years of age ; but at the commencement of the courtship whence the present action originated, was only 26 ; and the defendant, Mr. Daniel Gardiner Chance, was a gen- tleman of considerable fortune, of accomplished manners, and had served some time as a Lieutenant in the South Gloucester Militia. Before the year 1815, he had met with the plaintiff, a young lady of great personal charms, and, attracted by her beauty, was induced to visit her at the house of her father. She was certainly inferior to him in point of situation, and followed the business of a fancy- dress maker, her father's salary amounting to only £ 80 a year. In the month of April, 1815, the defendant, after visiting at the house of ihe plaintiff's father, invited him to" the Old Bell, at Dursley, to take some refreshment. After some conversation, Mr. King, w ith a latidable and na- tural anxiety for the welfare & credit of his daughter, asked the defendant what wasthe object of his Tisits? The defendant, with the open honesty and candour of a soldier, replied, 14 what more can ! say, or what can I do more to convince you of the honour of my in- tentions ? May my right arm drop off", and mav my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth, if I ever deceive you or your daughter : there is no one shall ever call me husband but she, and I'll make her my wife." Mr. King then remonstrated with him, ob- serving, that, as he was a gentleman of fortune, he supposed he expected some fortune ; to which de- fendant replied, that he wished for no fortune; but thepei8on of his daughter. After some farther con- versation, the defendant observed, that he was old enough to be his own master, and lo chuse for him- self The Learned Counsel would not enter into a minute detail of the circumstances, a* they would be elucidated by many letters which he had to read. Mr. Jervis here read extracts from a number of letters addressed hy the defendant to the plaintiff, commenc- ing in 1815, couched iii terms of the warmest and most honourable attachment, and breathing senti- ments of the most tender description. The Learned Counsel dwelt at some length upon the contents of these letters, which, in several instances, alluded most explicitly to his intention of marrying the plain tiff. On the4th of February, 1S19, however, a letter was addressed to the plaintiff, in which it was evident that his affections had begun to cool; but, to the honour of the defendant, Mr. J. observed, it bore testimony, iu the most precise terms, to the exem- plary virtue and propriety of conduct of Ihe plain- tiff. In the month of May, 1820, the defendant visited the plaintiff at her father's house ; and, without any previous announcement of a change of sentiment, abruptly stated his attachment to another lady, and asked the plaintiff's consent to his marrying her, at the same time demanding that all letters which had passed between plaintiff and himself might he de- stroyed. At this unexpected communication she fainted away, and whilst in this slate her father en- tered the room. On demanding of tbe defendant what was the matter, he referred him to his daughter, who, when she was a little recovered, exclaimed, " Oh ! God, this will be the death of me !" and again fainted. On recovering a second time, she explained to her father, as well as she was able, the cause of her distress; when Mr. King reminded the defendant of their conversation at the Old Bell, and upbraided him for his conduct. After some further conversation, the defendant referred Mr. King to his mother, at Uley, whither he went; but during his absence, the defendant renewed his demand for the letters, and threatened to break open the doors and locks of the house to procure them ! On Mr. King's return he found the defendant still at his house, and informed him that he had seen his mother, who had declared to him, that he ( her son), bail heen engaged to Miss Maria Evans for the last twelve months, which the defendant flatly contradicted. A few days afterwards, the defendant wrote to the plaintiff, pressing her to give up or destroy the lelters. In the month of March, 1821, the defendant's mother, upon whom he was wholly dependant, and who had uniformly op- posed the connection, died, and he in consequence came into possession of a landed estate to the amount of £ 500 a- year: and, on the 21st of Jan. 1822, the defendant was married to the lady above alluded to! •— The facts as above stated, were fully proved in evidence on ihe part of the plaintiff — Mr. Puller, for the defendant, addressed the Court in mitigation of damages, but called no witnesses. The Jury, after a few minutes consultation, re- turned a verdict for the plaintiff, EIGHT HUNDRED POUNDS damages. The trial occupied the attention of the Court till nearly six o'clock. Good Friday was observed in this city with all due decorum and solemnity. The Judges, who are now here, and the Body Corporate, attended the Cathedral, in tbe forenoon, in form. It will scarcely be believed, that, during the performance of divine service, a respectable tradesman of this city, who was standing near thc pulpit, tvas robbed of his pocket- book, containing upwards of £ 40, with which the thief got clear off. We hear likewise, that, on Saturday morning, a spectator in the gallery of the Crown Court had his pocket picked of £ 20!— Gloucester Journal. At Leicester, on Monday, William and John Current, and William Barnett, who had been ordered for execution on Saturday, for poisoning his wife, underwent the dreadful sentence of the law before the county bouse of correction.— The two first named convicts were brothers, the one 24 the other 22 years of age; they were natives of Leicester, and very respectably connected, but had for some time led a most dissolute life. They were convicted of the murder of Thomas Raven at Leicester. The parlies had been playing at cards on twelfth night, and having quarrelled, the two prisoners followed the deceased into the street, and knocking him down, inflicted a deep wound upon his head and one over each eye, of which he died. Bedford v. Birley and others.— This cause, which involves the question of the transactions of the 16th of August, 1839, at Manchester, came on for trial on Thursday at Lancaster, before Mr. Justice Holroyd and a special jury. The Court sat until half past seven, at w hich hour 27 witnesses for the plaintiff had been examined, but his case had not then closed. The Judges attended divine service 011 the morning of Good Friday, after which the cause proceeded. Many ofthe plaintiff's witnesses, it was thought, made much for the defendants' case, as to the illegality of the meeting. The defendants are Mr. Birley, a captain in the Yeomanry, Mr. Well- ington, an officer, Alexander Oliver, a private ( by whom it was deposed the plaintiff Bedford was wounded), and Meagher, the trumpeter of the corps. —[ The plaintiff, by this action, seeks to recover from the defendants a compensation in damages for tbe injury which he received when attending the illegal meeting at Manchester in August, 1819.

CROWN" SIDE, George Graham, for feloniously entering Ihe dwelling house of John lit own, of Ituvlou of- the- Kle » en- Towus, on Ihe 22' l September last, no person being therein, and stealing a pair of shoes ami a pair of stockings, was the first person put to t he bar — The pi isoner ( aged 17) was seen lying in the road near Ruyton, by the prosecutor, pre- vious to the robbery 5 the prosecutor. and others conversed with hint, and he said he was going to Oswes'try I'aces; he had then no shoes or stock- logs'on, aud wot e a sort of sailor's jacket and trowsers. The prosecutor went home to his 4' iiiner, an'd then to his Work again, hi* wife also vent out to lease; on their return home, they found ih. it some person had entered their boose by going down the chimney, and after stealing the shoes am) .' tocUiugs had got out through the ch. mbcr window, the tracks of sooty feet being visible from the b « arth, up stairs, and tot lie window place. Suspicion alighted on the prisoner, and prosecutor fouud him on Oswestry Race Course, when he had on his legs aud feet the prostcutoi's stockings nnd shoes.— Verdict, GUILTY: seven years' transportation. In the course of this trial Mr. Baron Garrow funk occasion to animadvert on the ciicumstauce of the prisoner being indicted for stealing under the value of 53. His Lordship observed that, for the protection of labouring people, whose sub sistence often depended upon the whole family leaving their house las order lo go to work, offences of thin nature had been made capital bv a Statute of Elizabeth, and il was unwarrantable in any Attorney to take upon himself tp fiame the in. dictmeut otherwise tbanthe case really waa. The indictments should he drawn up strictly according to the facts of the Ca « e : and then, in the event of capital conviction, it was the duty, as it ought lo be, of those who administered the laws to mitigate the punishment iu the way they should deem most advisable. Samuel Hill, a labourer, aged 41, was indicted for stealing 235 fleeces of wool, value £ 40, and 9 cwt. of other wool, value £ 40, Ihe property uf VV. Keeue, li- 1j. at Stafford, front his farm- buildings at Helshaw, iu the parish of Stoke- upon- Tern, in this county.— Il appeared from the testimony of Mr. K cent's shepherd and otheis, that . Mr. K very recently had. in his outbuildings at Helshaw, as much as 1300 fleeces of wool ; the pi isoner worked in the. fields for Mr. K. as a l iboinei ; Mr. Kcene's servants thought the quantity of wool was diminished, anil on examin- ation, the quantity stated in the indictment was missed. The prisoner's house was then searched ( ou the Sth nil.), and I hree fleeces of wool, toge- ther with some loose wool, were found in a box. Mr. Keeue's servants stated that the stolen wool was old wool, and having been put in a damp place, had been moth- eaten; that it was obliged to be spread out in Ihe sun and air to kill the moths, and while undergoing Ihis operation a quantity of wheat chaff from the winnowing ma- chine was blown among them ; aud that, contrary to Ihe practice of all persot s in th; t part of the country, ihe inner side ofthe fleece was wrapped outside. The three fleeces found in prisoner's house were old wool, moth- eaten, chaffy, and wrapped up precisely as Mr. K.' s was, and Mr. Keetie's servants believed it to be their master's wool.— On his house being searched, the prisoner absconded, and two or three witnesses deposed that he told them that he left his borne because tie" was got into a scrawl;" that his house had been searched, and wool found there; that he believed it was Mr. Keeue's wool ; that his bio- ther and another man stole it ; that his brother ami the other man had stolen and sold several loads of wool ; and that he wished his brother had been hung on the highest tree in the county before he had brought him " into this scrape." ' When called upon for his defence, the prisoner ( who las a wife and six or seven childien) denied any participation iu ihe theft, and caller! three w itnesses to his character, two of w hom declined paving anv thing about him, and the third admit- ted that he had " heard things alleged against him." After consulting some time, the Jury enquired of one of the witnesses whether prisoner kept any sheep ; the witness said he did ; that the prisoner had sold seven to Mr. Hampton ( another witness) ; that the witness had sheared them for the pri mmer, but that the wool was put loose into a bag. — After again consulting for a short time, the Jury acquitted the prisoner. Mr. Baron Garrow observed to the prisoner— " You have had one of the most lucky escapes any man ever had : lucky, or unlucky, I may say, according to the use you make of it. The persons > 011 have called to speak to your character have shaken their heads, and declined saying any thing. The Jury have acqnitted you: hut depend upou it your future conduct in your neighbourhood will he watched; any offence of YOUR's will be carried to the old score ; and next time you come into what you call ' a so aw!.' depend upon it you will not find so kind a Jury," WILLIAM JAMES, a very respectable looking young man, aged 23, was tried for stealing, from the dwelling house of Mr. William Masefield, diaper, at Newport, a tin box, containing four £ 1 notes, one guinea and two half- guineas in gold, some silver, & c.— It appeared from the testimony of Mr. Masefield lhat, on the 29th of October last, the tin box, containing some bank notes, several provincial notes ( including a five guinea note of . lennins's Wellington Bank, which had stopped payment), some gold coin, and some silver tokens, memorandums, & c. was iu its place, iu au iron safe in his counting house; that the safe was always unlocked in the day- time; that the pri- soner was servant to a physician who had apart- ments at Mr. Maseficld's, bul that prisoner slept at his mother's ; that he had access to all parts of Mr. M.' s house; that the box and ils contents were missing on the 30th of October, on which day the prisoner did not come lo his master's as usual, but had absconded. T. Abbcrley, a hair- dresser, deposed, that he was an acquaintance of the prisoner's; that on the 2C/ th of October prisoner said he was going to be married to a young woman at Birmingham, and asked him to come on the morrow and help him to carry his bundles to Pave Lane; witness went accordingly, buI t( linking the bundles heavy, he asked prisoner if Ihey were all his own clothes, and he said they were; when they came to a public house on the road, called the Horse and Jockey, thev had some ale, which prisoner paid for with a £ 1 note, and desired lo have all the change in silver ; prisoner then took a tin box out of one of his bundles, and said he had got a good ileal of money in it; prisoner then searched his pockets forthe key, after which he said he had forgot it, but would not return for it ; prisoner then broke the box open with a fire shovel, aud witness looked over the contents ; witness saw a 5- guinea bill of Jennins's Wellington Bunk, two £| Bank of England notes, oue £' l Conglelon note, one £ l Wellington note, and some silver, bul he saw uo gold ; while witness was looking over these articles, he saw prisoner burn some |> aper; prisoner said he had kept his money in the box ever since he went to service; they then left the Horse aud Jockey, and when they arrived near Woodcote, they put their bundles down ; and prisoner asked witness for some string to tie round the box; witness took off his garter, and gave it to him ; prisoner tied the garter round the box, and afterwards threw it into a pit by the road side, saying " there is an end of it when they took up the bundles, witness picked up a taken, which hud dropt from the prisoner; he also found a small account hook near the bundles, which account book he now produced. A constable named Cureton said he searched the pit described by Abberley, aud found a tin box ( now produced) tied round with a garter: he opened the box before the magistrates, bat there was nothing iu il except a bill relative to some transactions between Mr. Masefield ( the prose- cutor} and Mr. H alien, of Sambrook. Mr. IWnsefield came forward and identified the box produced by Cureton as the one which had been stolen ; and Abberley deposed that the tape tied round it was the garter which he had given to prisoner — Mr Masefield also proved that the ac- count book found by Abberley was his property. A constable who apprehended the prisoner in Birmingham stated that when he took him into cus- tody, prisoner said, u What have T done for my mother! I have brought disgrace on my family; 1 did not think of committing the robbery five minutes before I did it." Several most respectable persons gave the prisoner the highest character for integrity; as also did Mr. ( Minefield as to his conduct previous to this robbery. ' I he Judge summed up the case to the Jury, and observed that, in a doubt ful case, good cha- racter should turn the scale, and they might acquit the prisoner; but in a case that admitted of no doubt, the good character given should only rau* e a Jury to lament that a person of such good character should have fallen into the commission of crime. The Jury found the prisoner Guilty, but ear- nestly recommended him to mercy; and Mr. Masefield came forward and seconded therecom- uiendat ion. His Lordship then said to the prisoner—" You have been found guilly by a Jury who would have been extremely happy if they could have acquitted you. You have received from many respectable persons the highest character; and the Jury and tiie prosecutor have earnestly recommended you as an object of Royal mercy. It Js my duty to pass the sentence of the law upon you ; hut I hasten to inform you that I shall recommend you to the mercy of your Sovereign. Your contrition and feeling for your mother, on vonr apprehension, give the best hopes as to your future behaviour; arid 1 trust that those kind friends who have stepped forward on your behalf in this your hour of peril, will, when your prison- doors are opened, receive you kindly, and thus prevent your becoming an outcast, as is too frequently the case with persons who have been in your present situation; aud that thus, after a six . months' imprisonment, you will return to your friends, and deserve their future kindness."— His Lordship then passed sentence of death ofi the pri- soner, but without the usual admonitory expressions; and concluded by exhorting him as to his future conduct, expressing his ti. Ost that what had just passed would be a lesson to the prisoner as lot)" 1 as lie lived. WILLIAM T'- TOR GROVE, aged 20, born at CJeohiiry Mortimer, was charged \ y » th burglariously breaking open the dwelling house of Elizabeth Jeffs, of the parish of Kinlet, and stealing a hat, value 10s. 6d. the property of Thomas Teart, and a silver watch, value £ 5, two £ 1 notes, and 7s. 6d. in silver, the property of William Lingo. Elizabeth Jeffs— is a widow ; lives in the parish of Kiulet; William I/ nge and Thomas Teart lodged with her on the 31st October, on which day prisoner was brought to her house ; there was a room in her house with three beds in it ; between VI and 12 o'clock on the night of 3 J st of October, she went to bed ; she was up last, and left Ihe key in the door ; on going lo bed, I passed through the room where prisoner and Ihe others slept ; Lingo aud prisoner were in the same bed. William Linge— is one of Mr. Childe's game- keepers; he had prisoner in custody on the 3lst October for poaching*, and took him to Mrs. JeflVs, j where witness lodged; he went to bed wi'h him between 9 and 10 ; about I or 2 o'clock in the morn ing he missed the prisoner, and, on examining, found his watch, two £ l bills, and some silver, were gone also; he went down, and found the door fastened, the key being turned outside; he has neither seen watch or money since. Thomas Teart— lived at Mrs. JeftVs on the 31st of October; on Norgrove being missed, he went down stairs,... where lie found an old hat, but a new hat of his own was missing : he has since seen his own hat in the possession of William Tyler William Tyler— is a constable at Bewdley, where he apprehended the prisoner, on whom lu- found a hat, which he now produced. [ Teart came forward, and identified the hat as the one taken from Mrs. JeHVs 011 the night of Oct. 3Lst.| George Jeffs, son of Mrs Jeffs, deposed to having met with prisoner in Bewdley, and to having him apprehended ; lie also deposed to seeing the prisoner tjicn wearing the hat stolen from Mrs. Jeffs's. Being called upon for his defence, the prisoner said he awoke on the night in question, when, one of t| ie men in the room asked him if he wanted to go, the man went down stairs with him, loosed hiin out, gave him a hat, and told liitn to go out of the country. Henry Jeffs, and other witnesses before- named, came forward, and said they were the only men who lodged at Mr?. Jeffs's on the night in question, arid they all denied tl^ e truth ofthe tale told by Norgrove. The Jury found the prisoner Guilty ; and Mr. Baron Garrow passed sentence of death upon him. James Howell ( the accomplice)— knows prisoner, who told witness lie ( prisoner) had been catched in the Brewery yard going to steal some lead ; this was about. G weeks before Christmas ; prisoner told wit- ness he had been catched by Mr. Beacall's son and the apprentice ; witness has not been much acquainted with prisoner; lie was not acquinted with him before the Sunday preceding the day on which he had the above conversation with him ; on that Sunday he met with him at a public house, in the Castle Foregate; he went with him from there to another alehouse ; he also went with him to the Brewery; 011 which occa- sion, prisoner and a person named Roberts went over the wall to steal the lead, and witness waited in the road \ witness went to help them ; he said nothing about this business till since he was apprehended ; he saw a handbill on the wall offering a reward for the apprehension of those who stole the lead, but did not read it; he did not examine it as to tha re- ward ; he docs not expect to- morrow to get the re. ward offered ; he has uot been told that he shall receive a free pardon for giving his evidence. Mr. Burr, plumber, deposed to the gutters of the Brewery having been cur, and part carried away about the time stated. Several witnesses were called to s. pcak'to prisoner's good character. fn referring the case to the Jury, the Judge ob- it hat going to public- houses on Sundays was house, and I always. kept them loaded, so that I . knew, when Griffiths said I had not a minute lo ' live, that 1 had not a minute to live if he fired it; the candlestick Griffiths held in his hand seemed to be a piece of elder, for it was hollow, aud he held his finger under it, and the candle rose or fell as he moved his linger— it went dojvn in the hollow once so ns to leave them in the dark; Griffiths held this candlestick the whole time; it was not my candlestick. Cross- examined by Mr. Pearson :— Was it your caudle that the person had who came into your room?-— No. Did you examine your candle- box next morning? — No: 1 Iiad no occasion. How can you tell, then, that thev had not taken the candle out of your candle box?— JBecause I do not keep my caudles in a candle- box. I had candles; but mine were penny candles; the candle held | by the prisoner was a smaller one. Did you ever 1 see the prisoners before that night ? — Never that I know of. How, then, came you to sav thev knew where the rum was as well as you did?— I thought they did, because they so readily found where every thing else was kept. Are you sure they never entered your house before?— I am; and I did not desire them lo enter then. Did yon always keep your pistol and gun loaded ? — I sup- pose you think that I never fired them off. [ Mr. Rodenhurst was here requested by the Judge to give vijore direct answers to the Counsel ; served* . the root of almost all the evils which came before . - , , , . r them for investigation ; many labouring persons go 1 " pon which Mr. Rorjenhurst observed to his Lord- to public houses and spend* their money, and this * hip that he had no wish to appear uncivil; but causes them to commit depredations to support them j he felt hurt that Counsel should be employed by iu their extravaoance; others, after working six days, ! the prisoners lo plead ^ gainst him, who must go to spend their earnings ou the seventh, and tiiis j have been paid witj, |> is tn. oney; he complained brings them into a like course, llis Lordship said, > that the money found upon them at Audlem, and the Jury should not believe the evidence of the ac- which was there sailed up, was given to the pn complice, un4ess. it was sufficiently confirmed by 1111- . j doubted testimony from a purer source. In the pre- • sent. cav. e ( as had appeared in the course of the trial) ; a handbill had been circulated, offering a reward to any accomplice giving evidence, with a promise of obtaining a free pardon for him also if possible; such a mode, iu n case like the present, he thoi/ oht indiscreet, llis Lordship then remarked on the ac- complice having said he saw, but did not reyd, the handbill It was for the Jury t<> say whether'' they believed this: but for his part, he could not believe it. Again, a question arose as to the indictment : the indictment- did npt charge the prisoner with- going to cut and rip with intent to steal, but with having* cut and ripped with intent to steal ; and to make out a case so as to find tho prisoner Guilty 011 the present indictment, the chief question for the Jury to con- sider would be, whether they were satisfied, that oil the night Mr. Beacall's son and apprentice saw him 011 the Brewery, the prisoner actually did cut and rip the. lead . with intent to steal it ; for he must say he was not himself inclined to believe the testimony of the accomplice : if, however, they were satisfied as to the testimony of the accomplice, they would find the prisoner guilty ; but if they had a doubt, they should give the prisoner the benefit of it. The Jury acquitted the prisoner ; and the Judge said to him—" If you had spent your evenings iii the jfojnpany of your parents, or in tlie society of some of your decent neighbours — and if, instead of going to public houses 011 the Sabbath, you had attended some place nf public worship— you would not have been placed in the disgraceful situation in which s, oners since their committal lo prison, as he had no doubt it was the produce of the robbery in hia house.] On further cross- examination, Mr. Rodenhurst said, bis own family knew his fire- arms were gene- rally kept loaded ; he knew Oliver and Clarke, when he saw thein at Audlem, were two ofthe men. In answer to some other questions, Mr Rodenhurst said that, after the robbery, aud not knowing then who might be connected with the persons who entered his house, he obtained a search warrant to examine the premisesofcertai. n persons whpm he suspected. On his re- examination, Mr. Rodeuhjurst said, I might have left a caudle loose in the house on the night of the robbery; I knew my pistol was loaded that night, for I had cleaned and loaded it. Ann Bar. net— was employed as servant at Mr. Rodenhorsl's iu November last ; she did not sleep at Mr. Hodenhurst's, but at her parents'; she left Mr. Rodenhurst's house to go home about six o'clock in the evening of the 5th of November ; as she was going home she saw four men near a stile in the lane about half a mile from Mr. Rodeo hurst's, and she avoided them hy going another ! way ; about seven next morning she came again : lo Mr. Ro. denhursl's; she was the first person | w ho came to the house ; the back door and part of tbe kitchen window were open, the glass and part of tho window frame being forced, and the 1 iron bars down. on the kitchen floor ; there w as a I part of a plough on the floor; I went to inform the neighbours, and when I canie hack my master you now stand. I hope it willbe a lesson to you, ! and his son- in- law were got up, hut not quite THOMAS BUTCHER— was found Guilty of stealing some brasses from a rolling mill belonging to Sir Edward Blount, at Cleobury, in t) iis county; the brasses were of that description which are fastened into an iron frame for the mill to work upon. The prisoner had sold the brasses to a person who pur- chased old brass, and who gave information of the fact.— The prisoner, who is a carpenter, said he found them wrapped up in some rags, thrust into a hedge, and thought that, as he found them, he had a right to sell thetn.— He vvas sentenced to six months' imprisonment. and that you will in future conduct yourself in a way to deserve the good character which some of your kind friends and neighbours have been so good as tu come forward and give you."

PANIEL WILLIAMS, aged 26, horn at Welsh- hampton, LUKE OLIVER, aged 23, horn at Elles- mere, WILLIAM GRIFFITHS, aged 30, bom at Ash, and JAMES CLARKE, aged 24, born at Acton, Cheshire, were indicted for feloniously and bur- glariously breaking and entering the dwelling house of Mr. Thomas Rolenhurst, of Cottpii, iu the night of the 5II1 of November, and stealing therein one brass pi- tol, two metal boxes, one silk handkerchief, and one key, his properly.—[ Other property, with hills and cash to a great amount, were stolen, but Mr. Rcdenhnrst had not taken the numbers of the notes, and therefore could not identify any of those found 011 the prisoners when apprehended.] Mr. Thomas Rodenhurst examined.— 1 live at Cotton, in the parish of Wem; I am turned 8t years of age: I had a son- in- law named Thomas Suudjuod ; he was working for me on the 5ih of November; he lived with me [ Mr. Saudland is since dead] ; on the 5th of November I went to bed about eight o'clock, having previously secured all my. doors and windows; 1 had a good deal bf property in my house at that lime; I had about £ 100 in notes, cheques on [ receipts from] the dressed. Richard Sillitoc— is a constable at Audlem remembers having prisoners in custody on the l lth of November; he searched them ; on Daniel Williams he found two snuff boxes, a quantity of money, some bank notes, guineas, sovereigns, and s Iver coin, a dark lantern, tinder- box, a flint, an auger, a key, a candlestick made of elder or some | hollow piece of wood, aud a watch ; on William i Griffiths he found money in gold and notes ; on Luke Oliver he found money in gold and notes ; on James Clarke he found money in gold and notes, and a silk handkerchief; the pistol, which had been taken from the prisoners, was given in at the examination by another person; witness saw Mr. Rodehhuist at Audlem ; Mr. R. identi fled the pistol, the silk handkerchief, the two snuff boxes, the key, and a knife also found on the prisoners, but did not speak particulaily as to the money; Mr. Rodenhurst at that time identi- fied Griffiths as one of the robbers, but none of the others particularly; witness at that time | examined the prisoners' shoes : he observed some- thing remarkable about Oliver's shoes ; they were nailed round the heels, and again half round, and the toes were nailed in a peculiar way; I took these shoes from Oliver, and have got them here. Mr. Groome— lives at Audlem; is clerk to Sir Corbet Corbet, one of the county magistrates ; remembers prisoners examined ; he took an ac- — . v/ v. ... o, L j . coitiil pf Ihe property found 011 them ; 011 Daniel Whitchurch Bank of Corner & Co. for£ 050, with William? there were " found l sovereign, 9 guineas, several sovereigns and other gold coin; about 12 2 crown pieces, 1 Birmingham token, 1 Stockport took place but a few days before, and the report of which had spread through the country.] Mr. John Lloyd Rodenhurst— is son to the pro- secutor, and lives near his house; on the 6th of November, the day after the robbery, I observed the marks of footsteps near- the stable door and coal- house. [ The witness here described the im- pression of the nails in those footsteps, and thev corresponded with those in the shoes taken off Oliver's feet at Audlem, and now produced.] This closed the ease 011 the part of the prosecu- tion.— On the part of the prisoners, a deposition made by Mr. Rodenhurst, the prosecutor, before the Magistrate at Whitchurch, was produced. It appeared from this deposition that Mr. Roden- hurst had applied for a search warrant to examine the premises of persons therein named, whom he suspected of being concerned in the robbery ; and as, in the deposition, Mr. R. appeared to depose lo his belief that such persons had committed the robbery, it was endeavoured to shew that his identification of the prisoners could not be relied upon.— Mr. Rodenhurst explained, lhat he had formerly been wronged by the persons named in that deposition, and in consequence, as he did not know at Ihe time of the robbery the parties who committed il, and had not then received informa- tion as to the prisoners, he suspected those who had injured him before might have been concerned 1 1 grain, hut he made no deposition as to the parties J whose premises he went to search having been 1 seen on bis premises by any person at the time of the robbery.— The Judge said this business of the deposition might be very easily explained ; Mr. Rodenl> iirs£ had, no doubt, applied for ihe search warrant ; and, as usual, just so much of the facts he stated as were necessary to make out the common form of a deposition were taken down; the rest was filled up in the usual way with the technical phrases of the person who drew up the deposition; and thus Mr. Rodenhurst was made to appear to swear to expressions of the meaning of which he could know no more than of a sum in algebra— a science which, probably, he had never heard of. His Lordship said, he did not mean to attach any particular blame to the person who drew up the deposition ; hot lie did hope, lhat in all cases, Magistrates or their Clerks, who drew up depositions, would place in those • depositions the actual words used by the parties. The case was very ably summed up by the Learned Judge; and the Jury found all the prisoners Guilty. Mr. BARON GARROW then placed the black cap on his head, and addressed the prisoners :— " I proceed, immediately after the pronunciation of that verdict which has consigned you to au ignominious dealh, and in the presence of those witnesses, 011 whose evidence the jury have found you guilty, to pass the sentence upon you which I he law directs. The Jury have probably been deeply impressed by the circumstances detailed iu evidence against you, as well as by the property found in your possession. The circumstances of your case, are such as to render it my duly to in- form you that you must not entertain any hopes of mercy. The state of his Majesty's subjects would be alarming indeed, if persons of your descriptii n were suffered lo go iu gangs of four to break into their houses, threaten their lives, anc) rob Ihem of their property, as yon have done. Examples must be made Of such daring offenders, aud I should not discharge my duty if I were to permit you to go from this place without giving you my advice to prepare for another world. I am. afraid that any observations of mine wonld be thrown away in endeavouring to enforce upon you a consideration of the awful situation in which you are placed. But you will, on lenvin CHELMSFORD ASSIZES.— The King v. Joseph Church.— This was an Indictment against the de- fendant and Iwo other persons, named Brown and Archer, for a conspiracy to obtain, nnder false pretences, 152 sheep from John Davies, with intent to defraud him of the same, at Harlow, on tbe 9th of September, 1920.— Tlie other defend- ants did not appear to take their trial.— The case, proved in evidence was this The prose Co tor, a Denbighshire grazier, was attending Harlow Cattle Fair in September, 1820, with 152 sfteep for sale. The defendant entered into a treaty with him for the purchase of them at the price of £ 120. He gave him a bill for £ 50, accepted by a person named P. H. Harley, Groove nor Hotel, payable at the banking- house of Messrs. Haukey and Co. and drawn by the prisoner. Whilst they were in treaty, another of the defendants, named Archer, came up in a gig, and the defendant Church borrowed of him a bill for £ 75, drawn upou and accepted by Brown, in the name of Lord Viscount Montagu, of Storrington- hall, Sussex, payable at Mr. Camp's, Baptist- cham- beis, Chancery- Lane, two months after date. The prosecutor took these bills, but w hen they became due Ihey wes « respectively dishonoured. The defendant Church had sold 70 of the sheep to a horse- dealer in Goswell- street- road, where, it ap- peared, Mr. Brown, alias Lord Viscount Montagu, liad applied to know whose sheep they were, and desired Ihe horse- dealer to sell them at his peril, for they were bought and paid for with his accept- ance. Before the Magistrates, Mr. Brown acknow- ledged the acceptance," Lord Viscount Montagu," to be his hand writing. It also appeared that Mr. Brown had made claim for some years past to this title, but had not succeeded. There was a house in Sussex in which he resided near to tlie estate of Lord Viscount Montagu, but waa not a freehold. The question was, whether the case proved amounted to a conspiracy— Mr. Andrews sub- mitted, on behalf of the defendant, that theie could be noconspiiacy in tbe case, inasmuch as Ihe mere non- payment pf bills, bona fide accepted by real persons, was not su. thcic. nl to support such a charge. — Mr. Baron Graham said, it was forthe Jury to decide whether or not the defendant was a guilty participator in the fraud by which the prosecutor had sustained the loss of bio sheep. His Lordship summed up the evidence to the Jury— The Jury found the defendant Guilty, and he was sentenced to six months,' imprisonment in i the county gaol I DEVON.— At Exeter, Phillip Chappell was con- demned for the wilful murder of Mary Stevens, about 20 years of age, who was pregnant by him. I The prisoner when called upon for liis defence, ! said, " My Lord, I aip as innocent as any body in the Court ; I loved ber too well to murder her !' I During the whole of the trial, the prisoner main- tained the utmost unconcern ; but 011 sentence being pronounced by the Judge, he appeared to relent, and wept bitterly. A lespectable dissent- ing minister gained admittance to the unhappy young man in the gaol the same evening, and ob- tained from him a confession of his guili— that whilst walking with the deceased on the hank of the river, he stunned her by repeated blows or. tbe head with a stick, nnd theu threw her into the water ; but that the dreadful act was not preme- ditated. KKNT.— At Maidstone, John Haywood, was found guilty of the wilful murder of Elizabeth, wife of William Impett, farmer, ofSellinge, bv shooting her with a gun, in consequence of her refusal lo 1 to his e mbraces. The prisoner seemed perfectly unmoved on his condemnation. No less than 5t unhappy convicts received sentence of death at these Assizes; of whom 19 were the men this place, be attended by one whose professional! > cated in Ihe smuggling outrages committed habits render him mure adapted to serve you in M^ Jibay, near Margate, on 2 « 1 September last, " shall therefore merely exhoit JV certain officers employed iu the prevetr- o'clock in the night I was disturbed hy hearing a thumpii: g af the door of the room where 1 slept; 1 got up to see what it was; I found a person had l token, l cighteen- penny token, 1 London sixpenny token, t Irish fivepepce, 1 silver sixpence, 9 Burs- lem and Pottery £* l notes, nnd 11 Whitchurch £ l RICHARD SMITH was found Guilty of stealing 5- g. uinea note and other articles belonging to Edward Wellings, with whom he lived as fellow- servant, at Lizard Grange.— When apprehended and t. iken before the Magistrates, he confessed the crime ; and on the deposition being handed up, Mr. Baron Garrow observed that depositions should always contain the exact words used by the parties. In the present case, the prisoner was made to say he 44 feloniously stole, took, and carried away," & c.; w hich form of words ( his Lordship said) no prisoner ever used since the world began.— The prisoner vvas Condemned, aud afterwards Reprieved. EDWARD WYCHERLEY was charged with stealing three fowls, the property of John Pool, of Hinstock Grange, and one turkey, the property of John Wynn, of iiinstock, on the night of the 22d February — On being'arraigned be challenged one of the Jurymen, who left the box, and another gentleman was called and sworn.— It appeared in evidence that t| ie pri- soner had called over night at a Mr. Crcsswelf who knew him, and who lived about a quarter of a mile, from Mr. Pool's ; he told Mr. C. he was going early in the morning into Wales; and Mr. Cressweil I told hint he might sit by the fire tiil he wished to set ! out 011 his journey, and then if he would call him he would get up and lock the door afler him ; the prisoner left the house some time in the night, but did not call any one to fasten the door afler him. In the course of the night, the poultry of Mr. Pool and Mr. Wynn were stolen, and the pi isoner, when attempting a further robbery of a similar nature, the same night, was apprehended with them in his pos- session.— The Jury returned a verdict of Guilty ; and on passing sentence his Lordship said, " The prisoner was allowed by a very good- natured but indiscreet man, who had some acquaintance w ith him, to sit hy his fire- side, & thence he went on a plundering expe- dition to rol> as many hen- roosts as he could iu one night, and did rob those of two farmers. The farmers, in these tinies, find it difficult enough to pay their rent with all the little additions they can make by disposing of every article of their property : it is, therefore, the duty of Judges to protect tiie property of such persons to the utmost of their power."— His Lordship then sentenced tlie prisoner to 7 years' transportation, and directed that Mr. Pool aud Mr. Wynn should receive their full expenses. In the Calendar, THOMAS WOOF ( aged IS), ED- WARD GIIBERT ( aged 21), and JAMES HOWEU. S ( aged 17), were charged on suspicion of feloniously stealing divers quantities of lead, from the Brewery of Messrs. John Edwards, Thomas Cooke, and John Kite, in Shrewsbury.— The Grand Jury found no true biil against Gilbert, Ilowells was admitted King's evidence, and WOOF was put on his trial on an indictment charging him with having cut and ripped, with intent to steal, a quantity of lead from the said Brewery. Mr. Thomas Cooke— is part- proprietor of a Brew- ery, in Shrewsbury, with John Edwards and John Kite ; that Brewery is not now in work, nor was it in work in November last; there are lead gutters to the Brewery, and in August last he saw them complete; in consequence of some information which he re- ceived, he went to the Brewery in December last, and found that a quantity of lead gutter had been taken away. William Bayley— is apprentice to Mr. Beacall, currier ; in November last, one evening about dusk, lie went to his master's stable, which adjoins the Brewery; lie saw Thomas Woof on the roof of the Brewery; witness called to him, and asked him what brought him there : prisoner laid himself on his back in the lead gutter; witness went on the roof, and prisoner ran nwny ; witness followed him, and found him and Edward Gilbert couched down in a hole at the back of the Brewery ; witne- s observed that there were about 2 yards of the lead ripped, and he knew that was not the case 2 hours before ; lie had known the prisoner several years. Thomas Beacall, son of Mr. Beacall, currier, was along with the last witness on the occasion above- mentioned, and confirmed his testimony ; the oc- currence took place between 6 and 7 o'clock in the evening.

I said, " I hope you will not murder me, if you take my property ;" he swore by his Maker, he would be d—— « d if 1 had one minute to live !—" You have not a minute to live, by G— d !" he still pointed the pistol at me; he then came into Ihe room, and said—" You go to bed now!" he had mv p'^ tol in one hand, and a candle in the other; I got into bed, and he put the clothes over me; he then said, " You stir hand or foot if you dare, and I'll blow your brains out !" lie then called out to some persor/ s'who were in another room, saying, " Have you found it?" they answered " No;" he again callcd out terv £ l notes. Richard Sillitoe produced the property taken from the prisoners ; and Mr. Rodenhurst identi- fied the handkerchief, two snuffboxes, the knife, the key, and the pistol; he believed the auger produced would fit the holes made in hi? shutters, atid he believed the wooden candlestick produced to be what the prisoner Griffiths held in his hand when the robbery was committed. Mrs. Elizibcth Sandhnd is daughter to Mr. Ilodenhurst ; she identified the handkerchief found on Clarke, and which she had hemmed for her father; she aiso identified the pistol. William Enson; remembers seeing the prisoners at the Fighting Cocks public house in Wrenhury in November last; I saw them about four o'clock this exigency. J ... . you apt to waste any of your time in any of those follies loo prevalent among persons of your habits." His Lordship then passed sentence of , deafh on the prisoners in the usual terms. WILLIAM TIOI. MES was found gnilly of breaking . info the dwelling house, of William Bristowe, at Quat Jervis, in the day time, and stealing thereout a coat, and other articles.— Mrs. Jervis had gone to 1 take her husband's dinner, having first locked the house door; on her return she found the house had j been broken open, ami robbed ; some of tbe stolen j property was found in possession of the prisoner, at a | lodging- bouse in Bridgnorth.— Holmes was tried at j the preceding Assize for the robbery of an old man ; in Shrewsbury, and acquitted in consequence of the evidence heing defective. CORNELIUS JONES was found guilty of breaking into the house of Thomas Wright, of the Wood- houses, near Whitchurch, in the night of Sunday, the 20th of January, and stealing a watch, a hat, and various other articles. — It appeared in evidence that live service were wounded. It was expected that five or six of these would be left for execution, as were three of the other prisoners. At DERBY Assizes twelve prisoners were capi. tally convicted.— Hannah HaLley, one ofthe un- happy person*, found guilty of the murder of her infant child in August last, was executed 011 Mon- day. She was 3t years of age, and at the time she committed the offence for which she suffered, worked at the cotton mill at Darley. She ac- knowledged her crime after condemnation, aud met her fate with becoming fortitude. At LEICESTEKR Assizes, last, week, five prison- ers received sentence of death — Amomr the pris- oners capitally convicted was William Barnelt, for the murder of his wife at Ullesthorpe, in that county, bv administering poison to her in Ihe month of September last. He was tried onThuis- day, & ordered for execution on Saturday morning. EXECUTIONS— On Friday, Saanderson, Batn/ ord, and Adie, found guilty at Nottingham Assizes of murder, underwent the awful sentence of the law, the prisoner broke open the house door and pro- j near that town. Bv ihe unremitted attention of ceeded to the prosecutor's chamber; he told the 1 ihe Chaplains to the two prisons, a considerable in the same way, and repeated it five or six tinies, still receiving Ihe same answer; he then went lo | in Ihe afternoon ; I had not then heard of the another room, and shoitly afterwards called out I robbery at Mr. Rodcnhurst's, but this was after tome, " You coineout of bed, and come here!" I lhat robbery had taken place; the prisoners were * . . . .1 - 1 • • 1 _ t• .1..:..!.: .. 1 T? 1 Ik 11.1 or fi.^ Jro . went according to these orders, thinking certainly | all drinking together at the Fighting Cocks; ' * " ' " they were talking about poaching, and 1 went and information to a constable ; I returned to I was going to be murdered; I found the man who had first broke into my 100m aud three other men there; they all together then said, " Now shew us where your money is;" I said, " Have you not found it?" they answered " No;" 1 saw my daughter's chest was open ; and they insisted on me shewing where the money was ; I put down my hand into the chest, and took out a secret drawer or till, which I put on the bureau ; I also took ouLa tbread purse, containing £ 40 of my daughter's, aud other property ; the man w ho fi 1 st came into my room is the prisoner Griffiths; j I am sure he is the man ; the tallest man of ihe j bermere's men ; my wife, having heard thai some- four put his hand over my shoulder to take the j thing had taken place at the Fighting Cocks tnpuey from me; thai man, I have no doubt, is the j about poachers, now came up, aud went home prisoner Williams ; I am sure the other two were 1 with me; Williams told me tliat he was the there; I will undertake to swear that the four [ master, and the other three prisoners weic his prisoners at the bar are the four nun ; after 1 had ! servants ; when I and my wife reached home, the taken out the A> tw drawer, they told tue there waa j prisoners followed us into Ihe house, and soon another, and bade me look that ; in that drawer I afterwards asked for the best that was in the there were three checks on [ receipts from] Mr. j house; my wife was frightened nnd shrieked; Corser's, Whitchurch Bank for i'G50; the four j some persons just then came to Ihe house, and gave the Fighting Cocks about 7 o'clock; about 9 all the prisoners left the house together ; they went on the road leading from Wrenhury to Whitchurch, and which passes hy my house; I overtook them; I first came up to Luke Oliver, who laid hold of the breast of my coat, and gave me a shake; Daniel Williams then gave me a chuck under the chin with a pistol which he presented at me; he was talking about poaching, and chucked me under the chin because I was one of Lord Com men continued in my house about au hour after they l. ad got the money; Ihey ordered me again into 111 v bed ; I had called to my son- in- law to get up, but he replied that he could not, for he was fastened in bed; they now came to my bed- side, and asked where my rum was ; I told them Ihey knew as well as I did; they asked me again; I said there was but about half a pint ; I usually have my rum bj the gallon from Whitchurch ; they saiil, " Where is the gin ?" 1 said, " I never buy any gin;" they then said, " We want some ale;" I said, " I have none, I drink none, I drink rum— there is only me and iny daughter, and we never brew;" in the morning, after they were gone, I missed many articles [ Mr. Rodenhuisl took a memorandum from his pocket of what was lost] ; 1 missed a watch, 20 guineas iu gold, 4 sovereigns, some silver, a pistol, a gun, two snuff- boxes, a silk handkerchief, a knife, and the key of the stable dour, together with several £ 5 notes, and several notes; I was some time before 1 found out the robbers; I was sent for to the Justices' meeting at Audlem; the prisoners were there in custody ; I then said Griffiths was the person who pointed the pistol at me, but I was not asked particularly about the others; the pistol was shewn to me at Audlem, it was mv property, which I lost on the night of the 5th of November; 1 also saw my knife, my handkerchief, Ihe key of inv stable door, and my two snuff, boxes; when 1 got up on the morning of the ( jth of November, I found my kitchcn door open, and that the kitchen window, together with Ihe iron bais which guarded it, had been forced in by the coulter of a plough, so that a person could enter; I also found that holes had been bored in the parlour shutters with a gimblet or some such instrument, hut the w indows were doubly secured, and they could not get in that way ; my pistol and my gun were always kept on a rack in the the prisoners weie taken ; I was examined befoie j ihe Magistrates at Audlem next morning. William Read— remembers a noise about the poachers, and coining near a gate on the Whit- church road, I saw some men approaching ; Daniel Williams was first; he was some distance before the others, aud said to me, " B your eyes, are you one of Lord Com bermere's men dogging us ?" he presented a pistol at me, and I seized it; in the struggle I broke Ihe guard, aud I ran away with the piece tbat came off; I then came up to Clarke and Griffiths ; Clarke was for striking me, but Griffiths said " No;" they went on, and 1 saw Oliver and the other prisoners enter the house of Eiisou ; I ran and gave an alarm, and came back with other persons to Enson's house; 011 our arriving there, the prisoueis all rushed to the door; and Williams presented a pistol at the breast of George Grosvenpr, the gamekeeper; 1 stood at the left side of Grosvenor, and twitched Ihe pistol muzzle under my own arm so as to come between us; it was afterwards taken from Willi arns, and given up to the Magistrates; il was the pistol of which 1 had part of the guard. [ The pistol was. the same which had been stolen from Mr Rodenhurst's.] GeorgeGrosvetior— is gamekeeper to Lord Com- bermere ; was present al Enson's when the pri- soners were apprehended ; when I came to En sou's door, Oliver and the others rushed out; Williams said he had a pistol, and immediately placed it against iny breast ; it was a brass- bar- relled one; Read pulled it aside; I believe it to have been the one now produced. [ The prisoners were apprehended in consequence of these occurrences, and on suspicion of being poachers ; but when taken before the Magistrates, their number, aud the articles found in their pos ) session, led lo a suspicion that they had com- mitted the robbery at Mr. Rodenhurst's, which prosecutor that if he did not lie still, he would blow his brains out; he then demanded the watch and other articles from the prosecutor, and carried them off; he alsp demanded money ; but the prosecutor told him he had none, as he had been ill a long time. — Next morning the prisoner was tracked by foot- marks to llollins- lane, where he lodged at the house ofa person now in gaol, named Venables, and where sqme ofthe stolen properly was found.— Condemned and Reprieved. JAMES BEDSON was found guilty of stealing a cow, the property of his cousin John Bedsnn, of Bole's Heath, Staffordshire.— It appeared in evidence that the prisoner, having stolen the cow, bail driven it as far as Edgbolton, 011 the road towards Shrewsbury ; at Edgholton prisoner and the cow were seen by Edward Clarke, a constable, who lives at Moreton Sea ; Clarke suspected, from the appearance of the cow ( not having been milked) that prisoner had stolen it, and had them both detained at Edgbolton white he went on the road the prisoner had come, to make enquiry; at Stamford Bridge, Clarke found the prosecutor distributing handbills relative to the cow ; and the prisoner was then committed for the robbery.— Many most respectable persons came for- ward to bear testimony as to the prisoner's former good character.— The Judge observed to Clarke, the constable, that the country was much indebted to him for his conduct in detaining the prisoner and the cow nnder such suspicions appearances.— Condemned and Reprieved. The case of WILLIAM HARRIS, noticed in our last Journal, came on next, on a capital charge, which was not gone into, of attempting to fire a loaded pistol at Thomas Williams, of Madeley. The pri- soner ( a poacher) was afterwards found guilty for the assault.— The Judge now observed that the pri- soner must take especial care never to appear in this Court again, nor to molest or threaten the prosecutor or any other of His Majesty's subjects ; he must also endeavour to find some oilier means of getting his living than by poaching; for it had been found in several instances, and especially to- day, that when poaching failed or was deficient, housebreaking; was resorted to to fill up the time. change was wrought in the minds of the criminals, and they met death with evident signs of con- trition. Saundersnn was in the 32d year of his age, and has left a wife and family. Adje was 29 years of age, and Bamford 25 — It is l6 years since an execution took place for the town of INoiting- bam. Last week, Sayward, the shoemaker, for the murder of Johu Ballard, suffered at Chelmsford. Notwithstanding the hardy and impenitent ap- pearance of this man during his trial, he evinced much sorrow for ihe offence from that time until" the hour of his execution ; forgiving his prose- cutois, and acknowledging the justness of his sentence. He was only 24 years of age. On Monday, Charles Smith was executed at Winchester for shooting at R. Snelgrove,- Lord Palmerston's gamekeeper. The culprit was very penittnt. He attributed his melancholy end, m a great measure, to disobedience to his parents and Sabbath breaking, and he declared lhat poaching led to every species of crime. EMANUF. L STEVENTON and FRANCIS PORTER were found guilty of stealing iron, the property of the Lilleshall Company.— Tn this case, as iu most other robberies, a trifling circumstance led to the convic- tion of the prisoners. In drawing some pieces of iron from the furnace, an instrument called a dog broke in one of the pieces ; this piece was among those stolen by the prisoners, and the prosecutors were thus enabled to identify the iron as their property. WILLIAM MANSELL was found Guilty of the man- slaughter of John Bennett, in the parish of Brace Meole.— It appeared that on the 4th of November last, being the Wake Sunday of the parish, the deceased and prosecutor were drinking together at the Cock public- house, at Hook- a- Gate: some dis- pute had previously taken place between them, and deceased now brought the old grievance forward ; the parties then went to fight, and in consequence of injuries received iu this fight the deceased died. It further appeared that the deceased, previous to his death, had acknowledged that he was the person to he blamed in the business. The prisoner was sen. tenced to 10 days' imprisonment, as his Lordship observed there were many shades in offences of this description, and the prisoner's was one of the lightest. The Judge also remarked, that in cases of pitched battles the byestanders were often the parties most to blame ; and if in such cases any of the hyc- standers were brought to the bar for promoting such offences, they may rely upon being severely dealt with. At the Westmorland Assizes, Mr. Towers, sur- geon, was tried for the murder of his wife; he was acquitted on the ground of insanity, and will there- fore be confined for life as a luuatic. REDUCTION OF RENT. The Rev. F. Marston, Vicar of Newton, lately returned 20 per cent, and the Rev. Christopher Swninson, Rector of Wistnnstow, lately returned 15 per cent, on the rents of tithes in those parishes. We hear that his Grace the Duke of Bedford has directed a reduction of rent from 15 lo 30 per cent, to be allowed to his tenants in this county* Exeter Gazette. The Duke of Northumberland is again liberally returning 20 per cent, on the half yeai's rent now payable by his numerous tenants. At the audit of Sir A. O. Molesworth, held at Pencarrow, last week, the worthy Baronet made an abatement ot 30 per cent, on Ihe rents then due to him. At his late rent- day, Earl Grosvenor made a deduction of from 2') to « 5 per cent, and in some instances more, from the rents of all his leuantry in the immediate ueighboui hood of Chester. G.
