BEING deeply sensible of the Cure I have received by taking your invaluable Drops, Gratitude compels uie to return you uiy 4iamble and hearty Thanks; aud feeling for my Fellow Creatures in such Situations, I have a great desire my Case may be published,, which is as fol- lows : — I was Iwo Year* afflicted witb this Complaint in different Parts of toy Body ( especially my Hands), particularly ihe Inside or Patois of the Hands, which broke out into Holes, contracting the Sinews, anil my Fingers were drawn inward, mv Wrists Anns, were ulcerated ; and being by Trade a Cord, wainer, I was obliged, with very great Difficulty, to cut out my Leather, and at last, totally debarred doing it at all, being iiuuble to use my Fingers, so far wns the Disorder seated in my Coi Thus with gigantic Strides ( baffling the Sk most eminent of the Faculty, who could render me no Relief) it ascended upwards in my Arms, and Shoulders; Ihey honestly loid me they could do ine no good, but that I might possible survive till it got to my Heart.— Notwithstanding such unplea- sant Disorder, with Information, equally as dreary, with Depression of Spirits, mingled with Hope, I heard the following Whisper:— The Door of Hope is not quite shut against thee ; there is a healing Balm at Upton Magna; there is a Physician there. I" instantly obeyed ; and commenced a Trial of your Drops;' when I soon found Relief, and when I had taken six small Bottles, I found a safe Cure. JOSEPH WILLIAMS.

NICHOLSON'S POPULAR COURSE of most most laborious attention to those important subjects to ; which your Majesty alluded at the " opening of ! Parliament. 44 To Ibe distress which unfortunately prevails among the agricultural classes, they have directed i tbeir most earnest attention, and, as far as was in their power, by the remission of taxation to the greatest extent the safely of the country, and the honour and dignity of your Majesty's Crown would allow— they have promptly applied those remedies. The great financial arrangements of the Pension Annuity Act, and the Five per Cent. Reductions, have enabled them to extend that relief farther than tbey had dared to expect. 44 In conformity to your Majesty's intimation, we immediately applied ourselves to the consideration of the disturbed state of Ireland, and although we were exceedingly pained lhat tbe circumstances of that country forced it to apply severe measures— yet those enactments were hut of short duration; and it was with great satisfaction lhat when the time for their renewal arrived, we found it not necessary lo increase Ihis severity,— But we had scarcely finished an investi- gation on this subject, when another and most important and more afflicting event forced itself upon our notice. Famine with its usual attendant, gaunt disease, were making rapid strides auionjone part of your Majesty's subjects io Ireland. Laying aside the usual difficulty, and delicacy of interfering with the provisions of your Majesty's subjects, your Commons, promptly and liberally, without stint iu measure, placed in the hands of the Executive tbe means to relieve those sufferings, ond they believe the mea- sures adopted have beeu attended with success. 44 It would ill become me to call your Majesty's The Sheffield Mercury says—" It is a plcasin? co'Urast ill the condition of this large manufac- turing district, Jo find, that whereas about two years ago thc weekly expenditure for the out- poor of Sheffield per week amounted to no less than between £ 300 and £ 400, the sum at present docs not exceed £ 50 per week. Thc Norfolk Chronicle says, " We regret to be obliged to apnounce tu the Public, that Ibe forgers so long employed in defrauding the Bank of Eng- land in counterfeiting their AI notes, have, from their being withdrawn, begun to forge thc £ 1 notes of country banks. Some English performers have been attempting fo perform English plays in Paris— aud it was but an attempt, for they were pelted front the stage on the first and successive nights, aud of course relinquished the performance. PHENOMENON.— A poor man, named H'hitting- ham, now upwards of 85 years of age, and residing at Nantwich, about five years ago lost his sight, without any other apparent cause than natural infirmity. He has bceu totally daik ever since until Wednesday lasl, when, without the slightest application of medical or other means, lie was per- fectly restored to his sight. Before we gave publi- city to this fact, we had thc most indisputable warrant for its correctness.— Chester Cuurant. CONSUMING SMOEE.— A writer in The Staf- fordshire Advertiser says—" It may lie well to make it generally known, that to prevent smoke from large furnace fires, no expensive apparatus is necessary ; for the burning of il may he effected in any of those now in use, after the first raising the fire to a red heat, and the not doing it is a great loss to the proprietor— all the smoke passing up the chimney being so much of vegetable matter not consumed, aud which should have been con- verted into heat. To burn the smoke, it is only i required, that when thc fire wants replenishing, tbe coals burning should be all pushed forward with a coo- rake, and the fresh coals be laid at thc mouth instead of being thrown oil the top, which is generally tbe case. A GOON AIM AND A STEADY MARK.— A fev attention to all the measures lhat have engaged Ibe ' lays ago, in consequence of a trifling wager, Ihe attention of your Commons. I will, therefore, conclusion, only express my firm conviction that yiuir faithful Commons, by their unwearied assiduity nnd zealous exertions, have entitled themselves to your Majesty's approbation. 44 Tbe Bill whicb I have now humbly to present to your Majesty is entitled, ' An Act for applying certain Monies therein mentioned for llie Service of Ihe Year 1822, and for further appropriating tbe Supplies granted in this Session of Parliament,' lo which, with all humility, we pray your Majesty's Royal Assent." I The SPEAKER then presented thc Appropriation Art, and the royal assent was given to it and other Bills. His Majesty then read the Speech prepared for closing the Session, which was in the following terms : U MY LORDS AND GENTLEMEN, 41 I cannot release you from your attendance in Parliament, without assuring you how sensible I atn of tbe attention you have paid to the many important objects which have been brought before you iu tbe course of this long and laborious Session. 14 1 continue to receive frorn Foreign Powers the strongest assitroiices . if llieir friendly disposition to- wards this country ; and I have the satisfaction of believing that tire differences which had unfortu- nately arisen between the Court of St. Petersburg!! and Ibe Ottoman Porte, are in such a train of adjust- ment as to afford a fair prospect lhat the pcace of Europe will not be disturbed.

Thy TUT Oil's KEY to all the Questions ptions of iny subjects." Then the LORD CHANCELLOR, by his Majesty's command, said— 44 MY LORDS, ANI> GENTLEMEN, 41 It is his Majesty royal will and pleasure, that this Parliament be prorogued to Tuesday, the 8th day of October next, to be then here holden; and this Parliament is accordingly prorogued to Tues- day, the 8th day of October next." The Commons then withdrew from the b3t his Majesty left the House. and The King appeared to be in excellent health, and seemed highly gratified by thc scene around him. Indeed it was a most exhilarating one; nothing but shouts of loyalty, and clamorous bells, and shrill- sounding trumpets, and waving of hats, and glittering equipages, aud joyous faces innu- merable. His Majesty repeatedly bowed and smiled to the exulting populace as he passed along ; every window was waving with white handkerchiefs; thc balconies were thronged with curtsying and thrice- feathered ladies, aod the Monarch aud the people seemed equally delighted with each other. The attendance of the pickpockets in doing duty, npon the occasion of his Majesty's going to prorogue Parliament, was so numerous, that the Police enjoyed any thing but a siuecure in prevent- ing their too zealous operation upon the pockets of his Majesty's subjects. Indefatigable exertions were made to rid both the fnudholders and the landed interest of their moveable property, and in many instances tbe Officers uf thc Peace waged an unsuccessful war with those levyors of taxes without consent of Parliament. A few were taken into custody, but the great body of these audacious plunderers proved the efficiency ofthe Metropolitan Police, by marching off their troops ami their ; boolv in triumph, after putting their adversaries hurs da combat. and F. vuuson, Whitchurch ; Franklin, and Onslow, j and Exercises in the above Books, may be bad at VVetn. i [ id, or any Key separately at 9d. or Is, each.

TROTTING MATCHES.— Mr. R. Ladbroke's Match to trot his horse 1C miles in an hour, aud to carry 10 stone, was undertaken on Monday- morning over a two- mile piece of turf, in Ashford Park, near Romford, for 300 sovereigns. Thc horse vvas backed at 5 to 4 to win, and lost by 29 seconds, through the horse breaking upon the ( rot iu Ihe 13th and 14th miles, which subjected the rider to turn him round twice.— The horse was not much distressed. Another Match, over the same ground, on which at least 500 sovereigns were pending, caused much sport. A Mr. Goodchild undertook to ride, first, a galloway on Ihe trot 13 miles in one hour, anrl to complete Ihe tuentii- six miles within the two hours from the time of starting. The galloway performed the distance well in three minutes within the given time; and Mr. Goodchild mounted Ihe horse, and won the match, with 49 seconds to spare ' I'he rider was dead beat, lo use a sports- man's phrase. DEATH BY FLOGGINC— An inqnest was held at York, on the 22d ult. on the body of John Furnell, a private in the 2d regiment ot' foot, who had been flogged at Hull, and within one weeir afterwards removed to the Barracks at York, where he died on Friday, the 19th ult. It appeared in evidence that he had been tried by a Court Martial, " for highly- irregular and unsoldierlike conduct, in having iu his possession a silverspoon or spoons, belonging to the officers' regimental mess, between the lst and 14th of June, and offering to dispose of tbe same, knowing it or them to be improperly come by ;" that be was found guilty, and sentenced to receive 300, lashes, which sentence was duly continued and inflicted.— The regiment had, imme- diately after the flogging had been inflicted, received orders to march oil their route to Ireland, and deceased complained of being hurt oil the baggage cart on which he rode. He was then con- veyed to Y'ork Barracks, being unable lo proceed wilh the regiment.— The Jury returned a verdict— 44 That tbe deceased received 300 lasbes ; and that he died of the same, and of the fever, mortification, anddebilitv arising therefrom. 4'— The Leeds Mercury says— 44 We rejoice, to hear that the Commander in Chief has ordered this dreadful occurrence to be rigorously investigated, it is high time that a system should be stopped, which allows the inflic- tion of a tormenting death on a soldier for a petty offence of larceny." STAFFORD SESSIONS. The King against JVootley, Hickman, and Hickman — This was art indictment preferred by the Trustees nf the Bilston and Wednesbury turnpike roads, against ihe defend- ants, for workingand getting the coal from under the road leading from Bilston lo Walsall, ll appenred upon the trial that the defendant Woolley was the owner of a colliery on Ihe one side, nnd defendants Hick mans owners of a colliery on the olber side of the road, both at work al the same time, and each striv- ing who should bave the largest share of the coal froin under the road. Woolley had left a pillar or rib of coal as a support to the road, which the Hickman* nfterwaids removed and carried awav. It also ap- peared that tbe collieries were in other respects iin- ptoperlv worked, by making the stalls or openings too wide, ( which ought to bave been left narrow, us a proper support to tbe road,) whereby it became unsafe and dangerous for travellers, and the conse- quence was, that il wngo- on laden with manure, be- longing to \ 1r. Owen, of Wednesfield, whilst passim' over it, dropped into a hole eight or nine feet in diameter, and several yards deep, the earth having given way under tile waggon in the centre of the road, whereby the waggon was broken lo pieces, but the horses escaped unhurt. Sborliy afterwards a carl and one horse, belonging to a poor cool carrier, dropped inlo a hole iu like manner, ibey were im- mediately drawn out, but the cart was broken and the horse lamed.— The defendants, Woolley aud Hick - mans, in their defence, attempted to throw the blame on each other; but the Jury being of opinion that they were all implicated in the erime, found all the de- fendants guilty, and tbe Court fined them £ 100. We understand, that many of the most eminent Physicians and Surgeons have of lale recommended the useof COCKLE'S COMPOUND ANTIBILIOUS PILLS, in such cases of Diseased Liver and obstinate Hilioits Affections, as have hitherto resisted the usual means of cure; there can be no doubt, therefore, that this medicine possesses vir- tues, greatly superior to atiy ever before offeree! to the public notice; nnd as il exerts a peculiarly spicific action on the liver, it removes at once every predisposition lo disease. We are assured by a most respectable chemist, who has subjected this medicine to the strictest analysis, that he has not been able to discover, in ils composition, the leasl trace of mercury, or of antimony, but that he finds it composed entirely of vegetable matter, " ! . ON DON— SAT U R DAY. A letter from Trieste, tinted the 23d ult. received via Vienna, mentions, lhat at Constantinople and at Smyrna, scenes of tiie most horrible butchery of the Greeks were reported to have taken place, as !* oou as the defeat « . f the Turkish fleet at Chcsme had been made public. The Sultan and the Go- verumeut are said to have taken a leading part in these excesses, A very marked impression was produced on Wednesday, in the city, by intelligence of the sudden death of John Inglis, Esq. the East India Director, and senior partner in the house of Iftglif, El] ice, and Co. of Mark « - lanc. Mr. luglis was in h: s 73( 1 year; and few individuals have maintained » higher estimation in commercial affairs, or will cause in the immediate circle of their acquaintance mure, sincere regret.— The unfortunate gentleman was found dead by his servant, in the water closet of his house in Mark. lane, having shot himself thiongh the body with a pistol. It was deposed! by several members of his family, that he had for some time been in a desponding state of mind, and a verdict of insanity was returned by tbe coroner's j « « » v. J RELA'v n.— On the 3d inst. four wretched men were executed at Limerick for the barbarous murder of Mr. HuSkins, jun. son of the late agent fur the Courknay estates.— They expressed great c'ontrition.

HIS MAJESTY'S EMBARKATION. It having beeu understood that his Majesty would, at so early an hour as nine o'clock, embark a. Greenwich for Scotland, the whole town was tilied with persons anxious to witness the departure of their Sovereign, and us early as three and four o'clock iu the morning, crowds of persons had stationed themselves at ihe water's edge to witness the spectacle. At a later hour the road from London to Greenwich was covered with vehicles of all descriptions, and the windows of each house were filled with spectators. At about eight o'clock the Lord Mayor of London reached Greenwich in his state barge, being towed to look forward lo r. dignified and honourable retire- ment. These hopes, however, the inscrutable will of Divine Providence has not allowed to be fulfilled. The Marquis of Londonderry succeeded to the title upon his father's death, which look place last year, lie has ieii rut family, and consequently will be suc- ceeded in his title and estates by his. broth* r Lord Stewart, our Ambassador at the Court of Vienna. The confusion and agitation, which this unex- pected" and calamitous event has created at the different Government Offices can hardly he described. Every one is running about enquiring if the news is true ; and scarcely auy one is able £ o give a collected answer upon the subject. Dispatches have he'eh sent off to all the Cabinet Ministers who are put of town ; and also to His Majesty, who, we are sure, will keenly feel the loss of an able, upright, and honourable Minister-, as'w. el- j as a most exemplary private individual. In the City the intelligence, though scarcely heiiev. ed ( so litlle was the public mind prepared for such an event, by any previous knowledge of the Noble Marquis's indisposition), bail the immediate effect of lowering the Funds.

Mr. George Maddox, schoolmaster, of Hope's Gate, near Worthen, in this county. Shortly afterwards several other city companies followed iu their barges. The Custom- house yacht, the Admiralty yacht, and several pleasure yachts belonging to'the East India Company, were sta- tioned off Greenwich Hospital, from whence his Majesty was to embark. The Square of the Hospital was soon after eight o'clock crowded with ladies and gentlemen, who had tickets fur the purpose given lliem ; but none were allowed to enter excepting those who were thus provided with tickets. A detachment of the lioyal Murines was stationed in the Square of the Hospital, and tho Greenwich Pensioners were ranged in a row facing the water. Ills Majesty's pleasure yacht, the Royal George, which had been in attendance for some days, was early in the morning moored directly in front Of the central gate of the Hospital, and Sir Charles Paget, the Commander, accompanied by the other naval officers, was i; i readiness to receive his Majesty. The boat which was to convey the Kiny from the shore to Ihe yacht lay alongside the vessel in readi- ness, and about liaif past two came to shore w ith Sir Charles Paget, for the purpose of receiving his Majesty.— Previous to two o'clock, Admiral Jervis, Sir Win. Oougreve, Lord St. Vincent, and others, proceeded to the Royal George in their several boats, to await the arrival of his Majesty. At this hour tile vliole of the extent in front of Greenwich was completely covered with boats, so as nearly to form a platform to the other side of the river. The jsie of Dogs, immediately opposite to Greenwich, was covered with immense shoals of people to wit- ness the spectacle, and bands of music struck up from time to time, playing various national airs. At a quarter past three o'clock his Majesty ar- rived, having started from London at about a quarter before three, lie entered tiie Hospital gate in a carriage and six, attended by a small body of guards, and drove up to the opposite gate facing the water. He was loudly cheered by the people as he approached. His Majesty immediately alighted from the carriage, and, attended hy the Earl of Harrington, Marquis Conyngham, and many naval officers of rank, descended the flight of steps lead iny to the water. He was then conducted on board the boat waiting for the purpose, and from thence t > the yucht, attended by Sir Charles Paget aud other officers belonging to that vessel. His Majesty ascended the side ofthe vacht with a firm but lively step ; and wheu on the deck of the vessel was again loudly cheered hy tlie people. Guns were fired, end martial bands struck up the national air of " God save the Kinir." His Majesty was dressed in a naval uniform, aud appeared to lie in excellent health. He several times took off Ins hat, nnd bowed to the surrounding multitude. At tliat moment the whole presented a most splendid scene, and the vociferations of applause might have been heard at an immense distance. The yacht did not immediately get under weigh ; but us soon as his Majesty was on board, the steam- boat, which was to tow the vessel down the river, got in readiness. The sails of the yacht were not unfurled, the wind being directly against it up the principal reaches ofthe river. The royal standard was hoisted immediately his Majesty stepped on hoard, and supplied the place of the commodore's flag, which was befoie displayed. His Majesty then took leave of Admiral St. Vincent, Admiral Jcrvis, nnd other Naval Com- manders, who had gone on board the yacht, and condescendingly attended them to the side of the vessel. In a few minutes afterwards the yacht begun to move, which again called forth the loud acclamations of the people. His Majesty again bowed, and seemed to be highly gratified by the brilliant scene. The steam- boat before mentioned, which had h.- en employed for the purpose, then slowly towed the yacht down the river, and his Mn. iesty remained on deck till out of sight of Green- wich. ' The vuclit wus followed by Ihe Royal Sovereign ateain- boat, which is also proceeding to Scotland. The vessels continued in sight for about a quarter of an hour, and the people, remained stationary until they were completely out of view. The multitude then gradually dispersed, and the place was shortly cleared. Many proceeded down the road to Chatham and Slieerness, to gain another sight of the vessels in passing. If is expected his Majesty will arrive in Scotland on Monday evening or Tuesday morning.— Edinburgh is crowded to excess. POSTSCRIPT. LOJVDOA', Monday Night, August 12. Sudden Death ofthe MARQUIS of I. OX DON DV. RRY. It is with inexpressible gritf tiiat we have to announce the above truly lamentable event-, mi event that will be no less : i deep affliction to all who knew the distinguished individual, tluin il will prove n severe and almost irreparable loss tn the country. The intellig* uce did not reach us till just as we wen- going to press, when we learned that Mr. Latchfnrd, n King's . Messenger, arrived at the Foreign Office, in a post- chaise and four, from his Lordship's seat nt North Cray. His Lordship, we understand, was slightly indisposed in the course of Friday and Satur- day Inst, and in the evening of the latter day, he was cupped ; he had also used tfie warm- bath. Yester- day he found himself better, and there wus not, we believe, the slightest apprehension, either on llie part of li's family, or of his medical attendants, that lie was in such imminent danger. This morning, however, fie suddenly expired. The immediate cause of his death, we understand, wus an . attack , of gout in Ihe stomach. His Lordship was born on the 181b of June, 1769, aud WHS, consequently, in his fif'y- fotirth year— a period of human life w'liiy'h might- have pertained hiiu to nerve his country for many ycurs to couic, aud The Funeral of the late Rev. MICHAEL EYE STEPHENS ( whose decease was recorded in our last obituary) took place on Thursday.— Mr. Stephens was early entered as a Gentleman Commoner of Pembroke College, Oxford, aud was eldest son of the late Thomas Stephens, Esq. of Benthall Hall, in this county. In bis public capacity he constantly acted as the'adviser and friend, and filled with the greatest zeal and exertion the duties of his office ; by his amenity of manners he conciliated the rich, and by his charity the poor ; and he adorned his private life with'those many virtues which con- stitute tbe great and good man.

The public will learn with much satisfaction that the sum of £ 7. 15s. has been paid into the hands of the Right Worshipful the Mayor, by Madame TUSSAOD, in aid of the Fund for relieving the distressed Irish, being the amount of the re- ceipts of the first day's exhibition of her unequalled and interesting collection of Composition Figures, in the Town Hall; a fact which we mention as con- ferring the highest credit on the liberality of Madame TUSSAUD, and as affording abundant proof of the superiority of her unrivalled Exhibition. The ANNIVERSARY of the SHROPSHIRE CHURCH MISSIONARY ASSOCIATION was held yester- day. The Rev. E Bickersteth, one of theSecretaries of the Parent Society, preached the Annual Sermon nt St. Chad's ; and the meeting was afterwards held iu the Town Hall, William Clitdde, F. sq. in the chair The Report was rend by the Rev. J. Langley. [ We regret that want of room prevents our extracting from its interesting contents this week ; but iu our next we purpose laying before our readers, some gratifying testimony ( given by a gentleman in India in a private Letter to a friend) to the character of the two Shropshire Missionaries who are labouring under ilie Society in the Island of Ceylon. J The meeting was then addressed by Robert Burton, Esq. and Ibe Rev. Messrs. Bickerstelh, Oswell, E. Williams, Brian Hill, Pemberton, Richards, Jones, Benson, Spooner, Mayor, King, SPGIiee, & Langley, whose speeches made a deep and manifest impression on those assembled. It appears that the Society- lias under its cure nine principal Missions, 200 Christian Teachers, 10,500 children of Heathen Parents receiving Christian education, and 50 Congregations gathered from among the Heathen, and lhat there have been requests from its dif- ferent Missions foi- 500 more Clergymen, who could fie sent out if there were those ready to go and means to support them. Tbe Shropshire Associa- tion received upwards of £ 840 during the last year. INQUESTS taken before Joseph Dieken, Esq. Coroner. — On Saturday last, an inquest was held on a man killed in a coal- pit nt The Banks.— On Mon- day last, an inquest was held on the bodies of two poor men killed by the fire- damp in a coal- pit, near Shiffnal. — And yesterday, an inquest was held on the body of a child, which fell into a pit of water, near Whitchurch, while its mother was employed in milking.— Verdicts in each case— Accidental Death. We should consider it a libel upon our taste as public Journalists, were we to omit pointing out to the notice of our readers whatever we think calcu- lated to please the mind, or to be useful to the rising generation ; and we feel a pleasure iu tlie present instance in pointing out the COI. LECTION of FIGURES iu the Town Hall, as worthy of public attention,— There'the physiognomist may view, assembled together in a small space, some of the most Illustrious Characters of the present age, copied from the finest busts and statues, and habited inappropriate costumes. The taut ensemble pre- sents a most brilliant coup deceit, and we are con- fident, is very superior to what the most sanguine lover of the arts could wish. The Collection con- sists of two splendid representations of the Corona- tions of our august King, and also that of Bona- parte, which have evidently been got up regardless of expense, the dresses being of the most costly description— the dress of His Majesty alone, we understand, having cost upwards of one hundred pounds, and is truly splendid. It would be im- possible, in out limits, to enter into any description of the merit displayed in this interesting collection, but we cannot refrain from recommending it to the notice of those who have young persons under their care, as au inspection of the great characters must naturally excite iu their minds a desire to open the pages of History and Biography ; and we doubt not but that the merits of this pleasing exhibition will not be overlooked during tbe time it remains in Shrewsbury. We understand that it has already been visited by some of our first families, who have universally expressed their satisfaction. Wc have never had to record the particulars ofa more splendid Fete than was given hy the Right Hon. Lord Forester, at AVillev Park, on Friday last, on the occasion of his eldest Son, the Hon. JOHN GBORGE WELD FORESTER, completing his 21st year. Great preparations had been making for some weeks previous, and a new temporary room was added to liis Lordship's magnificent mansion to enable hi in to entertain the distinguished guests whom he expected to receive. The Duke and Duchess of Rutland, the Dowager Duchess of Rutland, Mr. aud Lady Elizabeth Norman, Mr." a as! Lady Elizabeth Drummond, and many other relatives of the Family, arrived inthe early part of the week, and most of them are still enjoy- ing his Lordship's hospitality.- At the dinner ou Fridav, a most beautiful Baron of Beef, present- ed to Lord Forester by Mr. Rhoden, of Posenhall, was tbe admiration of the whole company, v. hich comprised a larae body of the distinguished re- latives, and friends of the Family. After dinner, a most appropriate speech was delivered by the Duke of Rutland'; and the Hon. Sir. Forester, iu a very excellent address, thanked the, company for their attendance. The Ball iu the evening was attended by more thau 300 of the most distinguished personages in tbis and tbe adjoining counties, and was of tile most splendid description. The Bandofthc Shrop- shire Militia was stationed near the entrance of the mansion, and played various select and national airs during the time of the company arriving and setting down ; and the Quadrille Band of Mr. R. Birch, of Shrewsbury, played for the Ball. The whole of the fine suite of rooms, including the temporary room ( the entrance to which w as formed of laurel,' illuminated with variegated lamps), were thrown open on the occasion, and a more magni- ficent display has seldom been witnessed. Tiie supper room was opened about one o'clock, and the guests sat down to a supper consisting of every delicacy that the season affords ; after which dancing was resumed and continued till, long after dav- light. We have been favoured by a gentleman present with the names of many ot" the personages who attended on this happy " occasion, but iu such a numerous party many of course must have been overlooked by him, anil this, we trust, will plead as our excuse for any omissions.— Among the com- pany were— The Duke and Duchess of Rutland, the Duchess Dowager of Rutland, Mr. and Lady Elizabeth Norman, 2 Miss Normans, and Mr. C.

Emery, E> q. of Burcolt, gave two sheep, with ale, to the men employed at the Steeraway Lime Works : and the rejoicings oil Ihe several and extensive estates of Lord Forester were universal. In SHREWSBURY, the bells of St. Chad com- menced ringing at an early hour, and cheerful peals were rung at that and the several other churches of the town throughout the day. Two tine sheep, the gift of Mrs. Stewart, and a third given by Mr. Jobson, of the Talbot Inn, were dis- tributed, with bread and ale, at the Glove and White Lion public- houses, St. John's Hill, to tiie poor of that und the adjacent streets. Mr. Scoltock, grocer, gave a fine sheep to the poor wftmen in St. Chad's Alms- houses; Mr. Acton, coachmaker, gave another to his work people, which was roasted on bis premises, ami served up with plenty of bread, vegetables, and excellent ale. Mr. Smart, fish- monger, also gave a fine sheep, which yvas ex- tremely well served up at the Wherry lun, and to which'a numerous supper party sat down, who afterwards enjoyed the glass and song in the ut- most hilarity to a late hour.— Mr. Altree, white- smith, regaled the persons in his employ, at the Mermaid Inn. A party of gentlemen and principal tradesmen celebrated the event by dining at the Talbot Inn, w'nefe, it would be superfluous to say, tbe dinner and wines were of the first class. S. Tudor, Esq. presided ; various loyal toasts and sentiments, with the health of the Heir and every branch of the House of Willey, were drank with cheers ; several excellent songs were sung ; and the utmost har- mony and conviviality prevailed. At night, Mr. Smart, fishmonger, Mr. Robert Legh, butcher, Messrs. Wellings and Poyner, tailors, Mr. Alcock, baker, the Glove and White Lion public- houses, ic. werc tastefully illuminated; and Mr. Smart also exhibited tv/ o large and beautiful transparencies — the one of the Arms of tiie House of Forester— the other the Crest, with a motto—" The Hon. George Forester and the Honse of Willey." The MASQUERADE and BAI. L at HEATH HOUSE, in this county, on Monday, the 5th instant, was numerously attended by an elegant assemblage of beauty and " talent. The Rooms were decorated in a novel style, the loyver part being converted into a Bazaar, in which every article that could please the eye or the fancy were offered for sole. The different Shops were decorated in a most taste- ful manner with myrtle flowers and coloured lamps, aud the Stands were served by some of the company. Among the Visitors present, the following characters were ably supported : — Lord Harley, as a Sicilian Mariner ; Lady Trimlestown, as a Spanish Donna ; Mr. Cotterell, as Shylock ; Mr. Rocke, as an Old Maid ; Mr. Andrew Knight, a Laplander ; Miss Knights, as Ladies of aCentury back ; Mr. Kailifax, Dr. Pangloss ; Mr. T. Salwey, a Monk of St. Augustine, dressed most classically ; Sir. I. Stone, Punch ; Mr. Lechmere, a Turkey Cock, a Lady, a French Postboy, and a Pedlar ( these characters were admirable) ; Lady and the Miss Syers, a most interesting group of Neapolitan Singers ; General Lloyd, a Waggoner; General Clay, in Uniform; Miss Lechmere, a French Flower Girl; Miss Clay Miss Hallifax, I'loyver Girls ; Mrs. Parkinson Clay, Rocke, Family ( Winterdiue); Mr. aud Mrs. Beale,; Mrs. Hawkins Browne ; Rev.

At BUOSELEY," as soon as day broke, the ringing of bells and the firing of cannon announced the arrival of the auspicious morn. The forenoon was spent in a variety of amusements ; among others a pony race, in which 9 started, and Mr. W. Thurs- lield's was the winner. The more wealthy inhabit- ants having raised a subscription for the purpose of regaling their poorer neighbours, three fine oxen were purchased and placed down to roast, a field having been decorated and prepared f « the approaching feast. At twelve o'clock nn immense concourse of people had assembled in the town, and so completely filled up the streets as to render it impossible to penetrate through the living and joyous mass. At the entrance iato the dinner field a triumphal gateway had been erected, on which was inscribed, in letters of sold, " Prosperity to the House of Forester." ^' en long tables were laid, the seats along each of which were calculated to hold more than 250 people, and the whole were completely occupied by about two o'clock, at which time the tables groaned under the loads of capital beef, with which, and a proportionate quantity of bread aud vegetables, the whole assembly ( nearly 3000) were feasted profusely— at the same time their moital clay was well' moistened with the " liquor of life," which was furnished abundantly from upwards of nine hogshsads of prime aie. A most excellent Band gave additional joy to the scene, and at intervals the cannon shook the neigh- bourhood, while the pealing clang of the bells burst responsive and made the welkin ring. The Duke and Duchess of Rutland, the Duchess Dow- ager of Rutland ( drawn by her four beautiful greys), the Earl of Bradford, Lord and Lady Forester and Family, Lord and Ladv Delainerc, Lord Hill, Rowland'Hill, Esq. M. P. Gen. Gros- veuor, Sir Andrew and Lady Corbet, Sir. ind I. adv E. Norman, Sir. and I. ady E. Druminond, the Hon. Sir. and Sirs. Smith, Sir". Assheton Smith, SI. P. and other distinguished personages, honourec. the field by their presence at the dinner, and secined much to enjoy the appearance of happiness and contentment which pervaded the assembled throng; the entrance of these distinguished visitors into the field was instantaneously greeted by most cheering aud reiterated huzzas. The dinner was succeded by dancing on the green, which was kept up with spirit to a very late hour. The old sport of bag- racing and other rural games were not forgotten, nor was the field deserted until long after day- light on Saturday morning.— At night the Town Hall was illuminated, and appropriate trans- parencies were displayed, which, with an immense bonfire, threw forth a light that must have been seen for many miles round.— Tbe inhabitants of Broseiey on this occasion subscribed upwards of 100 guineas as a fund to furnish general entertainment; and truly such a scene of festivity, and such an immense concourse of people, were never before w itnessed in that town in the memory of man.— It gives us pleasure to add that not ' the slightest accident occurred. At WELLINGTON, 3 oxen were purchased by subscription, roasted, and distributed with the usual accompaniments : a numerous party. dined at the Bull's Head Inn, Slessrs. G. Phillips and ' I. Ridding, Presidents; and bell ringing, firing of cannon, dancing & C. filled up the measure of the day's festivity. At LITTLE WENLOCK, a fine ox, and 6 sheep, were distributed, with bread, ale, Stc. and various respectable and jovial parties assembled to cele- brate the event. _ . At WN. T. EY, BARROW, & c. the festive demonstrations commenced at day- break; Lady Forester gave n bountiful dinner to the children of the school at Barrow; and the poorer classess of both parishes were and and the Sliss Walcots, Quakers ; Sir superb Turkish Dress; Sir.

See.— The Ball Rooms were chalked, with the Arms of tbe Family in the centre. The Bazaar differed from the Ball Rooms, by being in imitation ofa pavement with steps to the differ- ent Shops. In the Entrance Halt wis an Hofel furnished with every viand belonging to good Old English cheer. The supper was laid out in the Dining Room, aud at tw o o'clock the company sat down to partake of the repast, which was elegantly laid out, and displayed every sort of fruit and delicacy the season afforded. After supper, danc- ing was resumed, and the Slotley Group did not separate till after six in the morning. To the Editor of the Salopian Journal. MR. EDITOR, For the purpose of removing all misconception as to the real tendency and meaning of what is stated in my Letter of tlie ( ith instant, I must now beg leave to add, that the legal convictions therein referred to took place in the autumn of 1816. At which time, on the evidence of John Oaklcy ( then living in my service), two Innkeepers in this Village were by me fined, and both their Licences in consequence suspended, for having suffered Tippling in their respective houses during Divine Service.

Oswald Leycester, Stoke- upon- Tern £ 0 10 6 Ou Tuesday last, Thomas Davies, a resident of the Castle Foregate, in this town, was convicted before the^ Mayor and Magistrates, of robbing the garden of Mr. Richard Thomas, solicitor, and, neglecting to pay the damage incurred, was com mitted tothe House of Correction for 3 months.— We understand that the Magistrates have signified their determination of visiting all depredators of this description with the utmost severity allowed by law. Preston Guild.— The cause and origin of this plendid festival, the celebration of which takes place only once in twenty years, can he known at the pre- sent day to only a small portion of the community. The great interest excited by the approaching Guild, prompts us to lay before our readers the present par- ticulars. Preston Guild is by charter obliged fo be celebrated at the end of every twenty years, in default of w hich, the elective franchise of the inhabitants of Preston, in sending Members to Parliament, and their rights as burgesses, would be forfeited.— Twenty- eight days' grace are allowed to those who are inclined to renew their Freedom, whether ac- quired by ancestry or purchase. This is always announced before the Corporation in full assembly, by a proclamation of the town crier, who ends with these words— kt or ever after they are to be debarred of the Same on any similar occasion." The Dijrhy Family, which has the principal patronage of the Borongh, are of course deeply interested in giving eclat to this festival. Every kind of sport, suited to each rank and degree in life, is introduced. Notice of the Guild was given some time sime ago in the Gazette, that " the Guild of Merchants of the Bo- rough of Preston, in the County Palatine of Lan- caster, will be opened with the usual solemnity at the Town Hall, in Preston, on Monday the 2d day of September next, being the first Monday after the fast of the decollation of St. John the Baptist, when and where all persons claiming the right of freedom, or other franchise of the same Borough, are to appear by themselves or their proxies, to claim and make out their rights; otherw ise they will, according to ancient and immemorial usage, forfeit the same." Gregson's Antiquities of Lancashire thus mentions it.— The first charter to the burgesses of Preston, given in 1172, granted to them, inter alia, that the burgesses have a Guild of Merchants within the said borough, with all the liberties and free customs to such Guild Mer- chants appertaining; and the ancient and free bur- gesses of the borough of Preston have for several ages obtained from succeeding Kings and Queens of England full liberty and freedom, ns mentioned in the charter of Henry 11. Many other privileges, immunities, and franchises, stand ratified and con- firmed by several royal grants and charters, par- ticularly by the last charter of confirmation granted by King Charles 11. in 1684, and they have, for many ages past, held and kept within this borough a Guild Merchant at the end of every twenty years, as ap- pears by the records and Guild Books belonging to this incorporation. The Guild is generally a gay and festive meeting ; oratorios, balls, masquerades, and plays, continue for several weeks. Guilda Mer cfttoria, or the Merchants' Guild, is a liberty or pri- vilege granted to Merchants, whereby they are en- abled to bold certain pleas of landt & c. within their own precinct, 37th Edw. 111. 15th Richard II. The origin of them is said to be from the Saxon Law ; hy which neighbours entered into'an association, and became bound for each Other, to bring forth him who committed any crime, or make satisfaction to the party injured ; for which purpose, they raised a sum of money among themselves, and put it into a com- mon stock, whereout a pecuniary compensation was made according tothe quality of the offence commit- ted. Fraternities and Guilds were, therefore, in use in this kingdom long before formal licenses were granted to them, though at this day they are a company combined together with orders and laws made by themselves3 by the Prince's license,- Camden, OXFORD CIRCUIT— At Hereford Arizes, which commenced ou the 5th instant, the following prisoners were tried, viz. Samuel Ashcroft, for stealing a box from the City Arms Hotel, Hereford, containing wear- ing apparel ; Thomas Ty ley, a m\ John Wilding, for house- breaking ; George Groves, for horse- stealing, severally found guilty,, and received sentence of death.— William Clark, for stealing a watch ; John Pendry, for stealing sheepskins; and Jane Harding, for shop- lifting-, were sentenced to seven years trans- portation ; John Harding, charged with the same offence as tits wife, was o^ uittpd , Philip P*****,, for stealing from a dwelling- house, twelve months imprisonment; William Gough and Mary Gough, for keepng- a disorderly house, the former to be im- prisoned two years, and the latter six weeks ; Ann Williams, for bignmv ; and Lewis Jones, for man- slaughter, 1 month's imprisonment; William Bound, for stealing a fowl, six weeks imprisonment; Griffith Davis, for house- breaking, James Hill, for stealing a tablecloth, and John Brown, for stealing a mare, were severally acquitted. The business at the Crown side was terminated early on Thursday. All the capital convicts, except Ashcroft, were reprieved.— There were twenty six causes entered ; in one re- specting Tithes, Underwood, v. Partridge, the verdict was given in favour of the defendant. This cause had excited much interest, it commenced about three o'clock on Thursday, and afler the witnesses on the part of the plaintiff had been examined, the Court adjourned, and the trial was resumed at nine on Friday, and continued until three in the afternoon. The Jury, which was special, were about twelve minutes in considering their verdict. On Saturday morning, at nine o'clock, came- on to be tried, before Judge Bayley and a special Jury, the stock- jobbing cause, Harries v. Garrett, which involved transactions amounting, in about two years and a half, to upwards of £ 2,440,000 and with an ultimate loss of nearly £ 18,000, but they yielded a profit to the brokers during that period of no less than £ 3000. We are happy in observing that the other partners in the Bank had no knowledge what- ever of these transactions. About half- past ten at night the Judge began summing up, and about half past. two the Jury delivered their verdict in favour of Mr. Garrett, fhe Court during the whole of the day was crowded to excess; and on the verdict being announced much rejoicing took place. On Saturday, the Commission was opened at Mon- mouth ; and this day their Lordships will reach Gloucester, where the business will be lighter than has been known for many years, the calendar con- taining the names of only 33 criminals. IMPORTANT TRIAL.— At the late Leicester Assizes a cause was tried, the King versus John Hates the elder, and John Bates the younger.— The prosecutor was Mr. Lacey, of Nottingham, to whom a patent was granted some years ago for the making of Lace. The defendants, John Bates and Son, are hosiers in Leicester, and have also an establishment at Antwerp. The indictment contained nine counts, stating that the defendant John Bates the younger, applied on the 3d of March last lo Joseph Parrott and Gilbert Goodwin, and required them to make certain Machines, called Bobbin Lace Machines, with the intent that the same should be exported to Antwerp; they also set forth every particular for the completion of twenty frames. The case was clearly made out by the men employed, who underwent a severe cross examination by Mr. Denman— The Act of Parlia- ment on which the above indictment was grounded, was passed on the 21st Geo. 3, intituled an act to prevent the exportation to foreign parts of utensils made use of in the cotton hose, woollen, and silk manufactures of this kingdom. The defendant, John Bates the elder, was found guilty and sentenced to be imprisoned for one year, to pay a fine of £ 200, and to be further imprisoned till that fine be paid. John Bates the younger forfeited his recognizance by not appearing. We cannot ( says the Leicester Journal) but call the attention of our readers to the incalculable mischief which must result to a manufacturing nation by send- ing its machinery into other countries ;— One British machine erected at Antwerp becomes a model for ten thousand more, to be distributed over the whole con- tinent of Europe, where they can purchase the raw- material on equal terms at least with the British manufacturer, and where they can obtain the neces- sary labour for conducting it at two- thirds of the ex- pense which must be paid for it here. We cannot bnt rejoice that this prosecution has been instituted ; and we sincerely trust that the example afforded by this conviction will have the effect of deterring others from the prosecution of plans so fatal to their own peace, and so destructive to the vital interests of their native country. On Friday se'nnight, in a coal- pit belonging to the Earl of Lonsdale, Henry Fitzsimmons unscrewed the top of his Davy's safety- lamp, ( to seek for his beer- bottle), which immediately caused an explosion. The fatal effect was, that five persons were scorched, one of whom is not expected to recover, and Fitz- siuiwons, the author of the mischief, is dead. WALES, BIRTHS. On Friday, the 2d inst. at Bodfach, Slontgo- meryshire, the Lady of J. Hesketh Lctlibridgc, Esq. of a daughter. On the 31st ult. at the Vicarage, Carnarvon, the Lady of the Rev. J. W.

Hughes ( wife of Mr. Humphrey Hughes) of Althrey, near Bangor Flintshire. On Tli irsday last, in the 28th year of her age Elizabeth, wife of John Heaton, Esq. of I'liis Heatou, Denbighshire. During a long and most severe affliction, this lady manifested a degree of meekness, patience, aud resignation to the Divine Will, which could alone be created by a firm per- suasion of the consoling truths of tiie Christian religion. The indigent poor in her own neigh- bourhood will sustain from her removal a loss" of the most serious kind ; the habitations of penurv sickness, and wretchedness, yvere sought out, aiiii cheered, by her active but unostentatious benevo- lence. In her character as a christian, she was sincere, exemplary, and pious ; as a w ife, a mother and a friend, undeviatingly affectionate, conde- scending, nnd faithful. By those remotely con- nected with her, her death will be deepl y lamented • but to her more immediate connexions, her li us hand' children, and parent,, who best knew how to esti- mate her worth, the bereavement is most impres- sively afflictive. Lately, at Glynystwith, in the county of Cardio- n, in her 23d year, Mnria Jane Bethenson Edwards wife of John Edwards, Esq. and eldest daughter of the late Rev. Eliezer Williams, Vicar of Lampeter. CHF. sf Kit CIRCUIT.— Al the Montgomeryshire Great Session, which commenced at Welshpool ou Th ursday last, Richard iVharton, for stealiiif- a gown, the property of Richard Jones, was sentenced to seven years' transportation; Mary lircy, for uttering base silver coin, to be imprisoned 1- 2 months, and at the expiration of ( hat period tu. find security for her good behaviour, herself in £ 20 tor 12 months, and two sureties each in £ 5 for 2 years; A nn t. ewis, for uttering and having in her possession base coin, to be imprisoned 3 months. — One prisoner remained for trial yvlien our account came away.

The esteemed Bishop of St. David's, to com- memorate His Slajesty's passing through that Diocese last year, has caused a brass tablet, with an appropriate inscription, to be afiived lo the stone pier at the gateway of Aber « willy. We understand it is in contemplation to com- plete the communication between North aud South Wales, along the road from Newtown lo Llanbisier, and by Llanbadarn to Buillh, by putting that rjad in complete repair throughout, and thus opening the shortest and best communication belween North and South Wales, and thus also between the great sea ports of Liverpool and Bristol, there being a direct water communication by caual from Liver- pool to Newtown— The subject is under the consideration of the Committee of the Western Branch of Ihe Montgomeryshire Canal, and also of a Commitlee of Ihe Commissioners of the Radnorshire Turnpike Roads. The first stone of the Trophy to be erected on Holyhead Pier, in honour of His Majesty's landing in the Principality, was laid with considerable ceremony on Wednesday last. Royal salutes were fired from ihe batteries on the Salt Island, the Mountain, Fort Peurhos, S; c. The gentlemen who attended, afterwards dined at Spencer's Hotel; and the evening w as spent in appropriate festivity. REMARKABLE OCCURRENCE.— In the year 1664, on the 6th of December, a boat on the Slenai crossing the strait, with SI passengers, was upset, and only one passenger, namtd Hugh Wil- liams, was saved. On the same day, in Ihe year 1782, was upset another boat, containing about 60 persons, and every soul perished, with ihe exception of one, whose name was Hugh Williams; and on the 5th of August, 1820, a third boat met the same disaster; bul the passengers in this were no more than 25, aud, singular to relate, the whole perished, with the exception of oue, whose name was Hu » b Williams. On the 4th inst. M t r sermon was preached at Welshpool by the Right Rev. the Lord Bishop of St. Asaph; after which the sum of £ 53 was collected for the benefit of ( he National Schools in that town. On the 28th ult. a w oman was killed at Bangor, in Flintshire, hy the lightning, and on the same day, a hoy was killed by the elcctric fluid, at Hope, iu the same county. ABERDOVEY.— On Wednesday, the inhabitants and visitors of this beautiful place were gratified with a rowing match, between the boats of the Hope, Capt. Jones, and of the Agenoria, Capl. James, which, after a smart contest of about 20 minutes, was won by the boat of the Hope. Athelstan Corbet, Esq. of Vnysymaengwyn, the patron of this romantic spot, attended with a large party, while other gay parties filled the private pleasure boats of Glandyfi Castle and Pcnhelig. The numerous trading vessels in fhe poi I were decorated with their various flags, and the whole scene was one of the most enlivening gaiety and pleasure. The rich heiress, Miss Patten Bold, is about ( o be led lo the Hymeneal altar hy the Polish Prince Snpieha.— The Lady's fortune exceeds £ 20,000 a year. A matrimonial union is about to take place between Lord Mandeville, eldest son of ihe Duke of Manchester, and Sliss Sparrow, of Huntingdonshire, who is heiress to an entailed estate of £ 12,000 per annum.

SIR, "" In your last Journal you represent that, by tbe | late Marriage Act, uo person of ran ft- inferior to a I tiishnp can now grant Licences: and this I presume j is correct, as if appears from the newspapers to be ; in exact accordance with the opinion of the Lord i Chancellor delivered in a case in the Court of Chancery since the passing of the Act. But this is not all. It may be doubted whether even the power of a Bishop to grant Licences is not now taken away, if both the parties applying reside • mithin his own diocese. Tbe Act, after declaring that no person shall henceforth be authorised to . grant any Marriage Licence, except the two jfcrcb. bishovps according to tbe rights now vested in them, goes 011, " and except the several o her Bishops within their respective dioceses for the marriage of CAPITAL INN, OR PUBLIC HOUSE.

At Durham Assizes on Tuesday last, John Ambrose Williams, printer and publisher of the Durham Chronicle, was found guilty of a libel on. the Clergy of that city and its suburbs. The libel appeared in the Durham Chronicle of the 18th of August last, and charged the Bishop and Clergy with brutal enmity to, and as being among tbe persecutors of the late Queen, in not having the bells of the Cathedral tolled at her death.— Mr. Scarlett conducted for the prosecution, and Mr. Brougham for tbe defencc. 2 1 1 hr. down 3 2 4 3 follow, that in all cases where the two persons shall he resident at the time within the diocese of the Bishop, bis power to grant Licences no longer exists, and all persons residing within the same diocese can be married by Banns only. It has been thought by some, that the power of Surrogates of Bishops to grant Licences continues untouched by this New Act. But if no one under the degree of a Bishop can now grant them, thc office of Surrogates is annulled. And even admit- ting that this is not the case, it is clear that no Surrogate can now exercise his office until he has been sworn in anew iu the presence of the Bishop. Marriage Licences have hitherto run in the name of the Vicar- General of the Bishon. B-* appears by the Act, as quoted above, Licence shall be granted in the name of the Bishop. Consequently the power of Vicars- General in this respect is now superseded. And us, by the Old Marriage Act, no Surrogate can grant a Licence until be hath taken an oath for the faithful exccu- tion of his oOioe according to law before the Ecclesi. astical' Judge tcho hath power to grant Licences of Marriage, it follows of course that no Surrogate can now grant a Licence until he hath taken this oath for faithful execution before the Bishop. Whether, after having taken such oath in the But it now that the Wheat . i Malt presence of bis Bishop, a Surrogate can lawfully grant Licences, depends upon the previous question, | '' whether a Bishop can now delegate his authority in ' " - v this respect to any one else : which, in the opinion of the Lord Chancellor, be cannot. But however that be, this is clear, that no one can delegate an authority which be does not possess himself: and consequently, if no Bishop can now grant a Licence for the Marriage of two persons residing within the same diocese, which for the reason assigned above should seem to be the case, it will follow that so neither will any Surrogate be able to do so new were shown, and two We heard sold, one at 7s. 6d. the other at 8s. the hu diel.

Scarcely was there ever remembered such immense supplies of Wheat at this period of the year as we had in tbe course of last week, which occasioned so gn at a stagnation in the trade, that hardly a sale could be effected either on Wednesday or Friday ; conse- quently, almost the whole of last week's arrivals, which amounted to nearly 20,000 quarters, was left over for this morning's market, when we had a con siderabje quantity fresh in from Kssex and Kent, chiefly consisting of this year's growth, and of very fine quality ; but the demand was very slack, and new may be quoted 10s. and old from 3s. to 5s. per quarter lower, but. without being able to seil large quantities at that abatement,— Barley supports last week's prices, having but little of fine quality at market.

The New Marriage Act repeals from the day on : which it passed, and not from the 1st day of September, as generally is supposed, so much of the Act of 26 Geo.

By this prema- ture clause, a licence, even though already obtained, js of no avail where either of the parties is under age; but it is necessary to have banns published. It may be necessary to add, lhat the clauses in the New Act, as far as respect the marriage of parties who are of age, do not take effect until the 1st day of September nexf.

The effects of intemperance Was awfnll v manifest- ed at these races on Wednesday morning, as early as two o'clock ; two persons of the names of Bill and Hudson, both of Burslem, were drinking in a booth on the course, and in a state of intoxication, after quarrelling respecting some liquor, they turned out to tight. By the evidence heforethc Coroner, Thomas Sparrow, Fsq. it appeared that both were in a con- dition which rendered them incapable of striking severe blows, and after fighting several rounds they mutually agreed to retire to the booth ; Hudson re- mained talking with some persons outside for a short time, when word was brought that Bill was dead.

Proceedings in Chancery had been going on for some time between these parties, and a Commission issued to examine evidence relative thereto, which was done about two years ag- o, and the testimony then taken wks very voluminous. It was, however, thought right that it should go before a Jury of the country, aud the Lord Chancellor, without preju- dice to either party, gave permission to the plaintiff to try an action of ejeetirientagainst the defendant, in which the defendant was to be precluded froin. setting up any legal estate ; and this action was brought in, pursuance of such permission. It v. as one of ejectment, in which Thomas Lewis Lloyd, of Nautwilt, in the county of Radnor, and Thomas Fyankland Lewis and Thomas Price, Esqrs. the two latter as executors of the late Mrs. Margaret Lewis Lloyd, were plaintiffs, and Edward Pryce Lloyd, Esq. of Glansevin, defendant. It was ori- ginally brought to recover the whole of a consider- able estate in the county of Montgomery ( which of itself formed only a small part of the property iu dispute between tbe parties), but the defendant having- suffered judgment by default as to a moiety, and pleaded not guilty as to the residue, tbe plaint- iffs now sought to obtain tbe other moiety. There was also a count in the declaration, and it was relative to that count only, which was not in the original pleadings, that Mr. Lewis and Mr. Price were plaintiffs, bv which they laid a demise for the purpose of recovering possession of a certain lease- hold tenement in Mellen- a-. wern, in the parish of Churchstoke, which Avas formerly purchased by a person of the name of Whittino- ham, in consequence of its being- surrounded by the other property in question. Both parties claimed as descended from their respective great- grandmothers, who were sisters— the plaintiff from Posthuma the younger sister, and the defendant from Bridget the elder one ; and the grand question to be determined was, whether Edward Pryce Lloyd, Esq, son of Bridget, and grandfather to the defendant, was ever married to Mrs. Martha Libanus, defendant's grandmother ; the plaintiff contending that he was not, and his counsel saying- he should be able to prove it by the evidence they should bring forward, from, which it would be found that Mr. Lloyd bad, to different persons, assigned different places as the one where be was married to Mrs. Libanus ; and that in none of the places so mentioned by him, nor in any other in the neighbourhood of them were their names to be found in the registers. Also that, sub- sequently to the time originally inserted in the codicil to his will by Mr. Lloyd, as the period of his marriage, his supposed wife had signed a deed in wbi « h she was described as Martha Libsnus-, widow. By indentures of lease and release of tbe 9th and 10th October, 1740, the property in question was limited to certain persons therein named for several particular estates for life, with the reversion in fee* to Edward Lloyd, Esq. brother to Bridget and Posthuma. This Edward died intestate, and with- out having come into possession; bis brother Richard therefore became entitled as his heir- at- law. Richard made a will, and thereby limited the estates, : afterwards r who married r, heirs in tail male. Thomas Lewis bad no issue male, and only one daughter, who married John. Lewis, the father of the lessor of the plaintiff, Thomas Lewis, commonly called Thomas Lewis Lloyd. On the failure of issue to Thomas Lewis,, his nephew David Edward Lewis Lloyd, son of his sister Mary, became entitled to the property, and on his death in July, 1818, he left a son, who was expected to enjoy it, but by his will, to thd very great surprise of every one acquainted with him, he declared that he had not been married to Ann Vaughan, the lady whom for upwards of thirty ve « rs be bad introduced to the world as his wife. iDavid Edward Lewis Lloyd having thus died with- out legitimate male issue, the estate reverted back to Bridget and Posthuma, as co- heiresses of theif brother Richard. On David's death, the defendant* as being descended from Bridget tlie elder sister, took possession of the whole property, but, as men- tioned above, has since given up the one moiety, and be and tbe great- grandson of Posthuma are now trying whether he has any leg'al claim to the other moiety. The first part of the plaintiffs' documentary evidence was to the leasehold tenement, of which Mr. Taunton, for the defendant, said he had never before heard, or his client would have given it them up at once, for it was only ( as was proved by the examination of evidence afterwards to be) a cottage, ten feet by eleven, with one room on the ground floor and another over it, but he supposed- they, on the alteration of the pleadings, crammed this in for the purpose of securing, in case of defeat, a verdict for something and perhaps they fancied tbey should, by so doing, secure the costs upon this great cause ; but, on tbat point be could assure them they would find themselves grossly mistaken. To this doctrine Baron Garrow nodded assent. An indenture, dated the 23d October, 17^ 0, was then read, by which Mary Lake, widow, lady of the manor of Hopton Ucha, in the county of Mont- gomery, for the rents and covenants therein " con-. Tithe Case.— A cause of no small importance has recently been heard at Exeter, whereby it is decided that the fair and ordinary takings of corn fields are not titlieable, and that thc legal method of throwing out the tithe of corn is, as it is reaped, while the sheaves lay on the arish, and not after ! they have been made into shocks or mows. Norwich Assizes.— John Parker, alias Atmore, a married man with three children, was convicted of a rape on Susan Ripper, a little girl fifteen years old, living at Wiiby.—' I'he Judge ( Best) in passing sentence of death, thus addressed the wretched prisoner:—" You pretend to be a religious man, and ought to have recollected that your offence was equally heinous in the sight of God, whom you profess to serve, as it was in the eye of the law of your country. But I am afraid you belong to one of those sects by whom the fashionable doctrine of a mere shew of religion is inculcated, while the duties it enjoins are totally neglected; and should you have been a dupe to these most detestable doctrines, I trust it will be a warning to others, and that they will be induced to study that Book from which they pretend to preach, where they will find it written, tbat * not every one who says Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven,' but he that dceth the will of Him. who is in heaven." EXECUTION.— On Monday morning, John Matthews was executed in front of Oxford county gaol, pursuant to his sentence at the last assises, for robbing and ill- treating Joseph Thomas, the driver of a stage waggon, near Neltiebed, on the < veiling of tbe 28th of March last. tamed j demised, leased, and let to. John Wl'iifting"-. ham, of Montgomery, a certain messuage or cottage, consisting of one room and a room over, situate at Mcllen- a- Wern, i. n the said manor, within the township of Killebar Issa, and in that part of the parish of Churchstoke which is in the county of Montgomery, then in the possession of Richard Rogers ( as tenant to Whittingham), for the space ' of 99 years. By au indenture dated, 14th Jan. 1769, Jane Whfttinghain, widow and administratrix of the above- named John Whittingham, in cbnsideration of the sum of £ 2. 5s. Od. sold and conveyed the said tenement or cottage to Mr. George Robinson, for the remainder of the unexpired term of 99 years. By an indenture dated 10th July, 1783, Mary Robinson, of Llanfyllin, the widow and executrix of the said George Robinson, in Consideration of five shillings, sold and conveyed tbe sathe tenement to Mrs. Margaret Lewis Lloyd, widow and execu- trix of the late Thomas Lewis Llovd, agreeably to a contract she had entered iuto with bim previous to bis death for the residue of the said term. The probate of Mrs. M. L. Lloyd, dated 3d Nov. 1800, was then produced ta shew that ber estate in this tenement was vested in her executors Mr Franks land Lewis and Mr. Price. After which, several witnesses were called to prove rent of a guinea a year being paid to the lessees thereof; it appeared, however, that it had generallv been let to the tenant of Melleu- a- wern, one of whom paid Mrs. M « L. Lloyd rent for ten years at once, and the present tenant pays one rent for the who'e, that is, for the farm and cottage, to E. P. Lloyd, Esq. who had forbid him to pay any to the lessor of the plaintiff. Mr. Taunton took an objection, and contended that the letters of adminisira ion to Jane j Whittingham, as administratrix of John Whittingv [ Tt: t. N OVfcK.] Ds/ ure Summer Assize. [ CONTINUED FROM THIRD PACE.] ham, the original lessee. ought to have heen produced to prove that she had the power to do that she did. Mr. Jervis submitted inat the pay- ment of rent was sufficient. Mr. Taunton said, the payment of rent would shew the party receiving being seized in fee simple.— Baron Garrow took a note of the objection. The plaintitfi then adduced their evidence upoft fhe principal question : and first produced the deed t> f the 9tb ami tilth of October, 1740, by which the property was limited as above- mentioned ; Richard Lloyd's w ill, dated 28th Jan. 17i) 7 ; and that of Thomas Lewis Lloyd, dated 6th July, 1772, with a codicil dated the 9th of the same month, by which codicil he declared that he married Margaret, daughter of John Lewis, at St. Ann's, Soho, London. The will of E. I'. Lloyd, Esq. ( defendant's grand- father, dated in 1753),- was produced by Charles Morgan, Esq. register of St. David's, who said it was not proved until rhe 2d March, 1814, and then on tbe citation of a Mr. and Mrs. Wood, t'he latter formerly a Miss Phillips, and grand daughter of tbe testator. The plaintiffs considered that an alteration bad been made in a date in the codicil relative to the time of testator's marriage, and called Mr. Thomas Morgan, of Llnngaddoek, who said, that cm the 12th January, 7301, hearing Mr. E. P. Lloyd was ill, he went and proposed that he should have his will made ; witness took directions for it, and made it, and on the day he so made it, Mr. Lloyd spoke to him about the Codicil. The substance of it he had mentioned' to the witness at the time he received' instructions forthe will, and on witness reading the will over fo him, Mr. Price told him he liiid omitted his request', . lad then dictated to him the Words of the codicil, which expressed bis wishes that his- coffin should not be screwed down, that bis- corpse shonld be kept a fortnight, and that be should be buried iu Llangaddock church, along- side his wife, who had behaved in an affectionate manner to him ever since they were married, which was in the year one thousand seven hundred and fifty three. Mr. Lloyd was perfectly sensible when these directions were given, and after it was signed it vvas given to DV. Parr, who enveloped and sealed it., and gave ir tb the defendant's son, Mr, Morgan Lloyd : Witness never saw it from that time until about two years'ago. The word three, it was con- tended by the plaintiffs, bad been altered from two, for the purpose of making it appear Mr. E. P. Lloyd was married when tbe will was made ; be certainly, they said, not being married in 1752, and the witness was examined to that point. . He said, w I do not think all the. word is my hand- writing; I do not think the alteration was made by me; it looks very much like n> y writing, but 1 do not know whether il is or not ; it seems as if it had been altered from a two; the top of the h, I think, is not mv writing." Ou his cross- examination, he said- 44 When I was ex- amined under ihe Commission, about two years ago, the w ill was as it is now ; I stated before the com- missioners then that 1 thought, it was mv writing; if . shewed me in any other place than this, I certainly should think it was mine." Mrs. Dorothy Crewe, aged 82, and very infirm, was then carried on a chair and placed on the table round which the gentlemen at the bar sat; she was tiie widow of Mr. David Crewe, whose brother Edward married Miss Libanus, whose brother was the first husband of Mrs. t. P. Lloyd. The object in calling this witness was to shew that in tbe family it ' was considered that Mr. E. P. Lloyd and Mrs. Libanus were not married ; biit the wit neks W3S so infirm that it was impassible for the Counsel who examined her to keep ber to one point: he was therefore obliged to give it up, and called Mrs. Mary Wooaflower, daughter of - dr. David Crewe, who said she knew Mr. and Mrs. Edward Crewe, was adopted bv them, and had frequently heard them speak of Mr. E. P. and Mrs. Lloyd ; " Mr. Libanus was iny aunt's brother"—" never heard Mr. and Mrs. Crewe say any thing to their advan- tage; from the claims Mrs. Lloyd had on my uncle's property, it was an irksome subject for them to talk about them;" when there came an application for money then these observations were ir; ade ; they said Mrs. Lloyd was a very trouble- some woman, and that they wished they had never heard any thing of her. Colonel Edward Evans said his mother was a second cousin to E. P. Lloyd, Esq. and that she aad himself were acquainted with him ; had seen Mrs. E. P. Lloyd at. Firgrove, and heard his own mother expressdoubts whether they were married or hot— she feared they were not ; had heard that Mrs. Lloyd was tlie wife of. Mr Lihanius at the time she wri'i living as the supposed wife of Mr. Lloyd, and that her marriage with Mr. Libanus was kept secret ou account of Mr. Libanus being fellow of a college— had heard this only as a rumour. In 1791 or 1792, when Mr. Lloyd lived at Glansevin, witness was going to see bis own sister then recently married, and he was desired by bis mother to call at Fir- grove, but objected because he was himself rather young and tbe lady rather old — his mother insisted, and said she considered her a very ill used woman, that whatever were her faults or failings, she bad amply made tip for them by the treatment she bad received, and on witness observing on the doubts his mother bad expressed relative to their having been married, she insisted that whether they were married or not he should call. David Griffiths, about 38 years ago, lived at Firgrove ( au estale of Mr. E. P. Lloyd's) as servant to Mrs, Lloyd ; Mr. Lloyd then resided nt another estate about two fields off, and Witness carried letters between them. Witness was also servant to Mrs. Lewis of Do! hay, who was cousin to Mr. E. P. Lloyd, nnd when any body asked Mrs. Lewis respecting Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd being married, she replied she did not know. Robert John Tilaloy said Mr. Lloyd came to witness's bouse about the 25th April, 1787, and then told witness he met Mrs. Libanus ( bis then wife) on the road to Llandrindod, that a flame of love took him immediately, and be went to Claverley near Bridgnorth, where they were married immediately ; another time he told w itness tbe same. Mr. Morgan proved the death of the late Mr. Howell Price, and Mr. James Wilson produced the testimony given by him before the Commissioners, tbe substance of which was, that when he was at school at Leominster, Mr. E. P. Lloyd resided there; that about 1799, in a conversation witb him as to the marriage of their friends, Mr. Lloyd said be was married at Ludlow.— Mrs Ann Ad cock had lived servant with Mrs. Lloyd at Firgrove, and heard her say she had been at Llandrindod, and went to Builth; that in going there she met Mr. Lloyd in the river Wye, aud that be never quitted ber until they were married. Several witnesses were then examined as to their having searched the registers of Ludlow, Ludford, Claverley, Bridgnorth, Barrow, Willey, & c. with- out finding any register of their marriage ; after which the register of the death cf Mr. Libanus, first husband of Mrs. Lloyd, on March ( j, 1751, Old Style, which would be 1752, New Style, was pro- duced, and Mr. Gill called, who also produced a deed dated 4th June, 1753, New Style, in which Mrs. Lloyd was denominated Martha Libanus, it being between Martha Libanus, of Flint, widow, bister arid heir of Thomas Hughes, Esq. of North- ope Hall, deceased, and Florentia Hughes, of tbe first part, and a person of the name oi Millington of tbe other part. A person of the mime of Lewis was then examined as to a conversation he said took place between Mr. Lloyd and a teuast, as be ( w itness) was coming from Newcastle, ou which occasion be heard Mr. Lloyd tell tbe tenant wot to take the place too dear, but leave it to Mr. Lloyd, of Dolhay, as perhaps somebody from Nantwilt might come after him. The case for tbe plaintiff being closed, Mr. Taunton submitted to bis Lordship that there was nothing to go to tbe Jury. The duty of tbe plaintiffs was to prove that Mr. E. P. Lloyd and Martha Libanus were not married, and they were bound to do it to recover in this action, instead of which, if they had proved any thing, they had proved they were married; he therefore wished his Lordship to ask tbe Jury whether they we re satisfied as the case then stood, or would wish him to enter npon bis defence. His only object was, tbat be did not wish to take up six or eight hours ( if their time, which be necessarily must do if they were not already satisfied thai the plaintiff bad not proved his case. Baron Garrow explained Mr. Taunton's proposal to the Jury, which - was special; slightly touched on some of tlie principal features of tbe case; and then told them that unless the plaintiff had satisfied their minds that Mr. and Mrs. E. P. Lloyd were never married, the defendant was entitled lo tbeir verdict, without going info the evidence for the defence. The Jury, consulted a considerable time, and tbe foreman, R. Hunt, Esq. once or twice asked his Lordship questions in explanation : they were not however ail of them perfectly satisfied. Mr. Taunton therefore rose and addressed them for the defendant, and in the commencement ofhis purpose of inserting such a trumpery cottage as tbat. w hich had been described, merely for the sake of getting something, because they well knew tbat they must fail upon the grand question, and would therefore, notwithstanding their obtaining the col-, fcage, Of which the Court of Chancery any more than himself, had no knowledge, have to pay the co^ is of the suit. Mr. Taunton then commented Upon the evidence adduced by the plaintiff, pointed out its different ! hearings, and shewed where it proved ihe defend- ant's case instead of the plaintiff's, and told them that when they should bear the evidence which it was his intention to produce before them— evidence of Ihe highest respectability*— evidence tbat would uot only reconcile every thing that might appear to them lo want explanation ; but also evidence that would prove beyond tbe possibility of a doubt that they were married, and that they were received and acknowledged as being so by persons of the highest rank; they would, he was certain, give a ve. diet in favour ofhis client. The learned gentleman was proceeding to state the nature of the proofs, when he was stopped bv the Jury, who expressed themselves satisfied, and found a verdict fir the defendant as to every thing except- the leasehold tenement or cottage; and for that they gave a verdict for the plaintif. Counsel for the Plaintiff, Mr Jervis, Serjeant Peafce; and Mr. Campbell ; for Defendant, Mr. Taunton, Mr. Puller, and Mr. Russell. * The Lord Bishop of Worcester and the Countess of Powis were amongst the witnesses for the de- fend ant.' EDWARDS k ANOTHER v. WYCHERLEY. This was an action of covenant, whereby tbe plaintiffs, who are curriers and leather- dealers at Whitchurch', in- this county, sought to recover of the defendant,, who is a saddler, also residing at Whitchurch, tbe sum of £ 150 and interest since tbe 13th November,* 1820, secured by a covenant or a mortgage deed.— Mr. Pearson opened the pleadings, and Mr. Jervis briefly stated that tbe plaintiffs had at one time lent the defendant a sum of £- 250 in cash, at which time he was also- indebted to them £ 96 for money lent and advanced- and goods sold and delivered, and the security upon which this action was brought was consequently made for £ 350, which, in November, 1820, was reduced to £ 150, at which time a memorandum or agreement in writing was made, wiierebv the defendant ac- knowledged himself then tobe indebted to plaintiffs in that sum. Mr. Jervis anticipated that the de- fendant would set up a defence on an award made by Mr. John Lowe and Mr. Joseph Hallows upon several returned bills, all dated antecedent: to the deed on which this action was brought, but the Learned Gentleman stated that the plaintiffs denied that tbey had ever submitted to the decision of those gentlemen ; that if they bad submitted, they had revoked such submission ; and that if they had not revoked the submission, the award was made behind the back of the plaintiffs, and was therefore void. Upon the close of Mr. Jervis's opening speech, Iiaron Garrow- suggested whether a refer- ence to a Gentleman at the . Bar would not be the most proper way of disposing of this cause ; to which plaintiffs and the defendant consented. A verdict was, therefore, taken for the plaintiffs, subject to the award of R. A. Slaney, Esq. who lias awarded the plaintiffs the sum . of £ 1'> 2. 10s. tbe money sought to be recovered . by the plaintiffs. Attornies— for the plaintiffs, Messrs. Watson and Harper; for defendant, Mr. Turner. money advanced by hint; and, secondly, If they were so deposited, whether Davies, at the time of making the deposit, was in such a state of mind as to be capable of entering iuto that or any other contract. J To facilitate the business, the defendant's counsel, 1 Mr. Puller, admitted' that the plaintiffs were the 1 heirs at law of William . Davies, who put an end to ! bis existence on tbe 10th of July, 1815;- that de- ' feiidant was in possession of the title deeds ; and that there was no outstanding term : it therefore remained for him to prove that be bad a lien upon tbe deeds, which, . he contended, were in. . his bands in tbe nature of an equitable mortgage, to secure the repayment of £ 230 advanced by him to Davies, and for ibe payment of which or the executing a legal mortgage he had filed a bill in Chancery against tbe plaintiff, who had a'so filed a cross bill against him lo recover the deeds on the ground tbat be bad no equitable light to retain them. In his address to the Jury, Mr. Puller said that he should admit Davies's frequently making genuflexions in the streets, and fancying ou particular occasions that he had commu- nications with spirits from the other world; but be should Contend that he might do that, and yet perform every thing connected with his worldly affairs as soundly, as sanely, and as much to his own advantage as any person in the county of Flint.— The evidence on the part of the defendant was first entered npon, by which il appeared that Davies boarded and lodged at Mr. Holland's, of the Green Dragon public house, iu Wrexham, for about five years aud a half previous to bis death ; that, in 1811, he purchased an estale near Bangor for £ 2000, and shortly afterwards erected a house thereon ; that, prior to his commencing the building, he paid for his board, & c. very regularly, but afterwards did not; that, about ten or fifteen weeks before bis deaih, his bill for hoard, & c. was made out, and amounted to £- 227;* tliat, iu 1815, Mr. Holland, in right of his wife, had some property left him, and, for the pur- pose of clearing oft' a mortgage which was on it, he natural beings, Unfit to fake care of himself, and was discharged as incurable ; tbe Doctor also con- sidered that persons labouring under such illusion were not sane, and that a person who is insane upon one subject is not fit to conduct business-; but ad- mitted, on bis cross- examination, tbat such a person may be properly employed to conduct business relating to others in the hospital. Mr. Jervis then proceeded in his reply, and contended that the English law acknowledged no such thing as partial insanity; and that if a person was insane upon one subject, he was incompetent to enter into any contract. Mr. Baron Garrow, in summing up, made some remarks on the evidence given by Dr. Johnson, and on what had been stated by Mr. Jervis with respect to partial insanity, which his Lordship considered to he recognized by the law of England in the same manner as lucid intervals were. If this doctrine were not allowed, then any gentleman who could be proved to have been deprived ofhis reason but for one hour might have all his property seized by his heir at law. Such, however, was not tbe law of England, for by it tbe most desperate lunatic, if restored to his reason even but for a short period of time, might, during- tbat time, dispose of the property w hich God had given him, &. such disposition would be good for conveying bis estate, though it amounted to millions per annum. His Lordship here instanced the case of a young gentleman of high talent, great acquirements of learning, of large property, and a magistrate, but of very singular and odd habits, who made a w ill and left his property to one not connected | with hiin by blood ; his relations contested the will, and, among otber singularities, proved tbat, when engaged in his magisterial capacity, he took it into his head to put round him an old woman's red cloak, not wonh ihree halfpence, and he might be seen every day be held a petty sessions dressed in this ridiculous manner, intended perhaps to imitate the ermine robes of ;' » judge; once a week, also, be would and his wife applied to Dnies for the money due to | have mutton for dinner, and, not content with one them; Unit Davies wrote to his sisters, the plaintiffs, j shoulder, would invariably bave the two shoulders several times ; that he desired Mr. Holland ( who, ns j dressed in the same manner on bis table at the same BELL j). BENSON. An action on a bill of exchange for £ 50, drawn by Michael Benson upon, and purporting to be accepted by, the defendant. The plaintiff is a brewer and spirit dealer at Liverpool, aud the defendant, who resides at Barnard Castle, in the couuty of Durham, a land agent to a gentleman of large fortune at Egglestone, of the name of Hutchinson. From the evidence it appeared that Mr. Fosier, brother- in law to the plaintiff, keeps a public- house in Liverpool, and that Mr. M. Benson, who had run up a score there, proposed to him to discount him a £ 20 bill. Foster gave bim £ 3 in part,; but before giving him the remainder, wrote to the defendant the following Jetter, dated Dec. 3, 1821.—" Sir, your brother, Mr. Michael Benson, called upon me to- day with au ac- ceptance of your's for £ 20, upon Barclay and Co. London. I beg leave to ask you if I may discount the same ; if so, be kind enough to answer by return, and you will much oblige your bumble servant, John Foster." To this letter, Foster said he never received any answer, notwithstanding which, he dis- counted others, in all 8, amounting to £ 331, upon which be had advanced £ 131 — and this after lie bad himself seen Michael Benson write one of the bills in question upon a blank acceptance. Actions, be said, were pending upon four of the others, in one of which he was plaintiff himself. Tbe band- writing of the drawer vvas proved by Fosier; and a drovier of the name of Baker, formerly a tenant of Mr. Hutchin- son's, but discharged, was brought to prove ihe acceptance being tbe hand- writing of defendant; the drovier had, however, only seen him write two copies of a lease at bis father's, and also two or three letters, but none of them within the last three years. Bartholomew Ragshaw, clerk to plaintiff's attorney, it appeared, went with tbe bailiff when the defendant was arrested on one of those bills for £ 33. 10s and on that occasion shewed the defendant a £ 50 bill ( but whether it was the one in dispute, or another of same amount lie could not tell), and asked him if the acceptance was his hand- writing, to which be replied, 44 you don't mean to ask me tbat question* you see what it is, don't you ?" to which Bagshaw answered, 44 you may think that Michael will be arrested on these bills;" and defendant replied, 4' if tbey arrest hint and Confine bim they will stand a chance of losing their money." Bagshaw answered, 44 how can that be, so long as you bave accepted them." De- fendant replied, 44 people often do these foolish things." At tbe time defendant was thus arrested, be wrote a letter to bis attorney, Mr. Wheldon, and gave it the bailiff to take, but afterwards called him back and vvent himself, and ihe bailiff returned bim the letter. On this, Mr. Bagshaw said it i* a pity you returned it, I shonld like lo see bis hand- writing and have a bit of it. Tbe presentation of tbe bill was duly proved; aftpr which Mr. Jervis addressed the jury for the defendant, and, in doing so, stated that be should incontrovortibly prove, and not by such a witness as the drovier, that the hand- writing, though like, was not the defendant's; that very possibly tbe action might terminate in the brother being tried for forgery, and also in prosecutions against some persons ( some who were then in court) for a conspiracy to defraud his client of his money.— He commented with much force on Foster's, writing to the defendant to know if he might discount the small bill, and yet, without receiving any answer, discounting others to a larger amount, and particu- larly that written on a blank acceptance. The defendant had sent money to pay two bills, but, for tbe sake of bis own family, was obliged to stop his band and defend himself from that which lie bad no doubt was a conspiracy. The first witness culled was William Hutchinson, Esq who stated the defendant had been his land agent for 14 years, and that he corresponded with him almost daily; the acceptances to all the bills be said were not the defendant's hand- writing, and the difference be satisfactorily pointed out. Mr. Thomas Wheldon, solicitor for tbe defend- ant, had also known him for fourteen years, and re- ceived letters from bim very frequently, at least once a week or fortnight; he confirmed Mr. Hutchinson's testimony, aud proved that in reply to Foster's letter, the following was sent to the post office, directed for him:— Dec, 5, 1821. Sir,— In answer to your letter of the third, I beg to observe that no bill ofthe de- scription you mention will be paitl by your obedient servant., George Benson." Air. Barnes, agent to Skinner and Co. bankers at Stockton and Barnard Castle, also pointed out the difference between the acceptances aud tbe writing of tbe defendant.— Plaintiff's Counsel, in reply, contended that if. was immaterial whether it vvas his hand- wiiting or not, if be had made a recognition of it, as he maintained that he had in conversation with Bugshavy. The Judge, in ' summing up, said, that the defendant not having shew n bis w itnesses any of the accepted bills, the hand- writing of which they were to disprove, proved that be bad an honest defence ; and after commenting at considerable length on the irregular conduct of Mr. Foster, and severely reprehending Bagshaw's cowd 11 ct at the time & efeudant was arrested, he left it to the Jury to say whether the hand- writing was the defendant's, or that of some other person who bad attempted fo obtain credit by ibe assumption of his signature.— Verdict for tbe defeudant. DAVIES & ANOTHER v. GRINDLEY, This was an action of trover to recover the posses- sion of certain title deeds to an estate in the neigh- bourhood of Bangor, in the county of Flint, which were in tbe defendant's possession, and vvas brought, iri pursuance, of an order made by tbe Vice Chan- cellor, for tbe purpose of deciding,— First, Whether he title deeds in question were deposited in the well as another person of the name of Wat kin Ed- wards, principal evidences of the transaction, died j some time ago) to get money on his writings, for j w hich purpose lie took them lo the bank of Messrs. ; Lloj d and Co. of Wrexham, but it being contrary to i tbeir mode of doing business, tbev refused ; tbat, afterwards, Watkin Edwards said Grindley ( tlie defendant) had money and would lend it, and on application he agreed to advance £ 600 on mortgage of the Bangor estate ; that, about ten or twelve days before Davies's death, the defendant lent Davies £ 230 in part of the £ 600 for tbe purpose of paying Holland, and'on the day of doing so a promissory note was written by Watkin Edwards as part security for the money, but Towards had himself written Davies's name to it; that Davies afterwards came to tbe window of bis bed room, and seeing Mr. Broster, principal clerk to Mr. Kenyoii, of Wrexham, in the street, called him up, and he, on seeing tlie note, crossed out Davies's name and Edwards's; and, as a security for Davies against Holland, wrote in it value received by Mr. Holland, and then got Davies to sign it himself; Davies, as a further security to tbe defendant, wished to give bim bis title deeds, but Mr. Broster, know ing tbey related to considerable property, persuaded him not to do so until an account of them could be taken, aud tbe mortgage, for the £ 600 be completed ; be also proved that Davies was of sound mind and understanding at fhe time of doing so; and, to a question put by Baron Garrow, said, that if he bad been called in to make his w ill then, be would bave done it; after Mr, Broster was gone, Davies wished to give the deeds ( which were iu a trunk under his bed), but on that day they could not find tbe key ; however, he found it himself a few days after, and then gave them to Mr. Hol- land, aud directed him to give them to defendant, but the. defendant living ten miles from Wrexham, they were not given bim until after Davies's death. Witb respect to his sanity of mind on all subjects but that of religion, W. W. Brookes, Esq. who had been professionally employed in making ibe conveyance, & c. for tbe Bangor estate, and a variety of other witnesses who had beeu employed in the building of the house, were examined, and all spoke to the accuracy, sense, and aeuteness be evinced in every thing relating to bis own affairs, aud particularly so in every bargain and contract be made, but admitted that he would, in the midst of the most rational conversation, suddenly turn off and kneel down or place his knee against a wall or ditchbank and mutter something to himself for about half a minute, and then return and continue the convers- ation as rationally as before; some of them also had beard him say be had seen angels and had communi- cations with them, also that he bad seen the devil ; they denied his beiug a drunkard, but he had « > oce or twice come down stairs with only his shirt aud n long top coat on, aud bad partaken of ale with persons in the kitchen, and given them some in return. On tbe day be put an end to his existence, Mr. Broster had seen him, and, from bis conversation then, considered him out of his mind, Mr. Jervis then adduced evidence, on the part of the plaintiff, to shew that Davies was not in a state of mind to enable him to enter into any contract, aud for this purpose commenced with reading some extracts out of a book written by Davies: among j others were-- 44 Jan. 2, 1807. Saw the King of Glory and bis only Son and tbe Holy Ghost about mid day." 44 July 29. 1 saw the dry bones appear to me at three o'clock in the afternoon." 44 I am ordered to pay Mr. five pounds more for the time. The questiou in this case was not whether tbe gentleman was troubled witb partial insanity, but whether he was in a sane state of mind at the time be made the will; it was proved tbat be was, and the w ill was made valid. 11c also noticed the case, of Mr. WarburtOn, who had gone tothe bedside of bis wife, with a watch in tbe one hand arid a razor in the otber, aud desired ber to pray instantly, for she had only a few moments to live ; thence be went to bis daugh- ter's bedside, but what passed there was of that horrid nature that, on her examination before the commissioners, she said nothing upon earth should induce ber to state what bad passed. In concluding, his Lordship told the Jury the question for their consideration was, whether Davies, at the time of giving the deeds to the defendant, vvas capable of understanding and knowing what he was doing: if so, the defendant would be entitled to tbeir verdict. —' Verdict for defendant. LEWIS y. ROWLANDS. An action to recover £ 15 19s. 9d. the balance of account between the parties. Tbe plaintiff was in tbe defendant's service, wboduringthai time received money for ber. A pocket- book iu which the defend- ant bad written, 44 May 16,1818, paid Eh » anor Lewis the sum of ten pounds, out of £ 25. 19s. 9d. due to her— Richard Rowlands," was produced, and the hand- writing proved; and the Jury gave a verdict for the Plaintiff for £ 15. 19s. sashes than they come to by fair measurement.' 44 I am a wicked man," Stc. & e. with others relating to charitable bequests formerly left to tbe poor of Bangor. Mr. J. Lewis Menlove bad known Davies from 1790 lo bis death in 1807 ; Davies was sent tothe Lunatic Asylum at Shrewsbury, and remained there 18 months; had accounts to adjust between Davies and the plaintiffs for tbe profit of his property during the time he was confined, and on one occasion be was at witness's house nearly five hours, most of which time he was upon his knees; Davies had told witness that be conversed with angels In heaven— that he saw them frequently — that lie saw them then ( in witness's parlour) ; witness thought bim not capable two months before his death of transacting business, and if be had been called to witness any will he might make at that time, he would not have done it. . Mr. T Phillips said Davies had lived with his mother from 12 to 18 months, and left in 1811; witness slept wilh him, and he would jump up 20 times ofa night, and say lie saw the devil at the end ofthe room, arid ask witness if he did not see him; that be saw angels and they sung to hiin; that at breakfast he would hearken and consult angels whe- ther he should take tea or coffee, and whether he should have honey in it or not ; sometimes he would say ' he devil would fetch ; before he was JONES NANNEY. Plaintiff is an auctioneer, and defendant a gentle- man of properly near Llanrwst. On tbe 8th and 9th of August, 1821, considerable estates in tbat vicinity were put up to sale by auction, and plaintiff" was employed as auctioneer. One of the conditions of sale was, that no person should retract his or ber bidding; and another was, that the purchaser should pay the auction duty. Lots 1 and 3 of the property were put up together, and after several biddings by other persons, Mr. Nanney bid £ 4000 for tbe combin- ed lot: tbe auctioneer, however, did not then knock it down to defendant, hut said be would put lots 1 and 3 by for a while, to give gentlemen time to con- sider. Hfe accordingly went on with the sale of other lots, and after sometime returned to the combined Lot 1 and 3. It was resumed at defendant's bidding of £ 4000, without any objection made by Mr. Nanney, and as no person advanced, was knocked down to htm. It was proved tbat a gentleman in tbe room had pre- viously said privately lo defendant, the lot would be knocked down to him, and tbat defendant in the same private manner intimated be should not take it. It was also proved that when the auctioneer resumed tbe lot, he said tbe biddings were open — but tbe wit- ness who deposed to this said lie tiad not beard plaintiff make the observation before. As soon as lie bad knocked the lot down, plaintiff took a glass of w ine, and dratik fo defendant's health, wishing bim joy of bis purchase ; to which defendant replied by an intimation tbat be should not take to the lot, and it appeared that he had not done so. The property, however, having been knocked down by the auc- tioneer, ihe auction duty became payable, and Mr. Jones, collector at Carnarvon, proved tbat plaintiff had iu May last paid him tbe amount, viz. £ 116. 13 4d.— To recover this from defendant the present action was brought, and defendant pleaded that, under the circumstances, be was not liable.— The Jury found a verdict for the plaintiff, for £ 116. 13s. 4d. subject to the opinion of the Court of Exchequer. clerk: and a person of the name of Martha Cross, who, with her husband, lived in a cottage near the Brown Moss, and were employed to watch and pre- vent people fishing there, proved that, on the 12th of March, the defendant and a Mr. Breretou were putting lines iu and catching fish ; that they had taken a good lump of fish— pike, & c.; that she told them they must not fish there, and defendant said he would not after that night; aud that on tbe 29tii of May she found him and another person of the name of Denovv there again.— Verdict for Plaintiff. LLOYD v. DAVIES. In this action, the Rev. John Lloyd and Mr. Hugh Jones were plaintiffs, and Mr. John Jones and Mr. John Davies defendants. It was brought on a bill of exchange for £ 200. drawn Aug. 8,1819, by Miss Grace Vaughan, OT Tvgwyn, upon the defendants, nt 6 months, and was by them accepted, payable Feb. 21, 1820, at the office of D. Auwyl, Esq. of Bala, their attorney,. who. was subpoenaed to prove their band- writing thereto, which he did. The drawer, Miss Vaughan,. was stated tobe a lady of considerable landed property in the countv of Merioneth, but who, in consequence of pecuniary difficulties, wished to part with a portion of ber estate ; and the. defendants had agreed with her, through . the medium of the plaintiffs, to purchase it, and were to have possession at the next Lady- day. In consequence of spch agreement, and as part thereof, defendants accepted the bill in ques- tion, which, on account of her embarrassments and an action that was commenced against her by two ladies residing at Denbigh of the name of Lloyd, at whose suit she was arrested, she indorsed over to the plaintiffs without any valuable consideration, one of whom said it had been sent to J. C. Williams, Esq. of Chirk, attorney to those ladies, for the purpose of putting an end to the law proceedings in that action, but Mr. Williams or his clients refused to have any thing to do with it. In April, 1821, the plaintiffs gave the Miss Lloyds a bail bond as security for the debt, and gave Mr . Williams a joint and several note of hand for the costs. Miss Vaughan died subsequently to the time the agree- ment for the purchase was to have been completed, without having conveyed the property to tbe de- fendants. The bill of exchange was not presented for payment when it became due, nor until April 21, 1821, which was upwards of fourteen months afterwards. Mr. Taunton, for the defendants, contended that the action must fail on the ground that the acccptance being special both as to time and place, no presentment of it had been made.— Mr. Baron Garrow, before he decided upon that point, said it was necessary to ascertain whether Mr. Anwyl, at whose office it was accepted, had, at the time it became due, or at any subsequent period between that and the day on which it was pre- sented, any funds which he could make available to answer the bill. Mr. Anwyl was, therefore, further examined as to that point, and said, that he had in the public funds, in the joint names of himself and Mr. Gabriel Davies ( father of one of the defendants), in trust for both the defendants, money to a much larger amount,, which was to be laid out iu land, also a considerable balance in the banker's hands in London, arising from dividends payable on the above trust money, and which divi- dends were to be applied iu any manner the defendants pleased ; but Mr. Anwyl said he could not apply that money without the concurrence of Mr. Gabriel Davies: ihe point was, however, reserved. Mr. Anwyl also stated, that neither he nor his clients knew of plaintiffs having £ iven a bail bond until about nine or ten days before the assizes. Mr. Taunton further contended that the plaintiffs must fail in the action on the ground that they, knowing for what purpose the acceptance was originally made by the defendants, had no right to draw them into any new liability, which was not in contemplation by them at the time of giving such acceptance. Baron Garrow wished the point reserved, but said he was inclined to be of Mr. Taunton's opinion ; and therefore directed a verdict to be taken for the plaintiff', with liberty to defendant to mbye for the verdict to be set aside, and a nonsuit entered instead. footpath, were put to the Jury, who, on bcth, gave a verdict for the plaintiff. CLEE v. WILLIAMS. Both parties are butchers at Ludlow, the plaintiff in tbe capacity of journeyman, and the defeudant a master. On the llth January, in consqnence of an application by defendant's wife to plaintiff' for a strap she had lost, and some expressions used by her in making such application, a grand fracas, or, as the Judge called il, a scandalous aud disgraceful scold- ing match, took place between tbe plaintiff and defendant and his wife, during which each party endeavoured to make the best use possible of their tongues, and this action was for damages said to have been sustained by plaintiff in consequence of words used on that occasion by tbe defendant. Plaintiff's then master certainly stated that he dis- charged him from his service iu consequence, and did not know of his having been engaged by a butcher from Cheltenham. According to plaintiff ' s own evidence, it was clear that the ianguage used on both sides was as bad as possibly could be, and one of the epithets applied by the plaintiff fa the defendant was such that the defendant's counsel, out of respect, as he said, to the Court, would not ask the word but write it down on paper, and then banded it to the Jury, lu summing up, Mr. Baron Garrow said tbat the plaintiff', having proved tbe words used in the declaration, was entitled to their verdict; he wished, however, it were possible forthe Jury to lake money from both parties and apply it to some charitable purpose, it would possibly lend, be thought, to make them carry un their business better; but as that could not be done, tbey must give the plaintiff such damages as tbey should think it was til for the one to pay and tbe olher to receive.

To a question by the Judge, this witness said Davies was never out of order but when he was speaking of angels, & c. Several other j witnesses were called to prove, bis constant practice of walking quick, then suddenly stopping and kneel- ing in the streets and on the roads, bflt never for more than a minute at a time— his conversing about angels, spirits, & e.; but bv most of these it appeared that, until within a day or two of his death, he would converse rationally enough ou any oilier subject. To one of these witnesses ( named Speak) be once said, speaking of spirits, lhat tbey were yelling about him like a pack of hounds, and on the Sunday before he died Speak went up stairs to him, and found him in bed, and, among other conversation, he said, 44 Speak, thou hast found me as drunk as ever you saw me in your life. I have been at Ellesmere and tbey fiave vexed me, and 1 have been drinking ever since." This witness bad also beard bim say 44 good devil, do not come for me yet;" but admitted that he vvas a man who made a bargain sensibly enough. Another witness said, that about twelve mouths before be died be told him that one of tbe fiends called bim a dirty rogue for. getting drunk, aud that this infernal fiend grinned at him, and shewed teeth like a lion. Mr. Puller then addressed the Jury on behalf of tbe defendant, and after reading several extracts from the book before- mentioned, written in a sensible and correct manner, and quoting an observation of the celebrated Dr. Johnson, who thought he bad once, ufter bis mother's death, heard ber call him by name, contended tbat be bad clearly shewn, bv plain- tiffs' witnesses as well as bis own, that Davies was perfectly rational on every subject but tbat of religion. Mr. Jervis then rose to reply; but shortly after commencing, Dr Johnson, of this town, who bad just before been sent for to prove the state of Davies's mind while under bis care in 1811, came in, and defendant's counsel agreed to let his testimony be taken, from which it appeared tbat at lhat period he was under the illusion of conversing with super- DALE r. WILKINSON". An action to recover the value of a cart and load of hay, detained hy tbe defendant under the follow ing circumstances. The plaintiff' is a miller, residing near Drayton, and, in August last, purchased from a Mrs Stubbs the bay upon a field she held adjoining tbe defendant's farm, who had given her permission for tbe purchaser to go iuto bis field to take it away, there being no other road.— The defendant's field was all sown with corn except the headland, on ! which there was hay then mowed. On Saturday, the lltb of August, the. plaintiff's servants fetched one load, and in doing- so took the cart beyond that part of the headland that had been cleared of the hay. On tbe following Wednesday tbey went for a second load, but did not then go over any of tbe hay: the weather being- very hot, the flies irritated the horse ( which vvas represented as a very poor one), so that be started and drew ihe cart and hay into the ditch, from whieh be could not draw it out; one of tbe servants, therefore, went to defendant's, and asked him to lend him a horse, and he ( not knowing whose servant he was) said he would lend him two; but au soon as be. knew it was plaintiff's servant, nnd where the cart aud hay were, said be would not lend hiin half one, and that be would keep his things until he paid him 19s. which he owed him foroats. Defendant then wenttothe field with the plaintiff's servant, where, after the horse had been taken out, be put a lock and chain on tbe gate, thus making the cart, and hay ( which was valued at seven pounds) his own.— On the part of the defendant it Several other ' vvas ' » ad detained the plaintiff's 1 property for damage done in going over the hay on tbe Saturday, contrary to Mrs. Stubbs's directions ; and tbat a few days after the lock was put on the gate, Mrs. Stubbs was sent with the key to the plaintiff, with directions for him to take his cart away, but that he would not, and that tbe gate re- mained unlocked from that period up to Lady- day.— It did not appear, however, that tbe key bad ever been delivered to tbe plaintiff; nnd with respect to the damage done to tbe bay, the defendant had had the plaintiff before a Magistrate, Mr. Sandford, for such damage, w hen be was ordered to pay 2s. 6d.— In summing up, Mr. Baron Garrow said, the defend- ant had, by ibe detention, made the cart and hay bis j own, and the plaintiff was therefore entitled to their verdict for such sum ns they should be of opinion tbey were worth : at the same time he observed, that some friend might have settled the dispute be- tween them at first, without their incurring the ex- pense tbey had done, for be bad no doubt, when the accounts came to be settled ( which they would be iu about two mouths), both parties would repent of going to law about such a trivial concern.— Verdict for the plaintiff", £ 7 for the cart, and £ 1.5s. for the hay. WRIT OP RIGHT. HOTCHK1SS versus HOLD. Much anxiety was evinced to be present during the hearing of this cause, which was under a writ of right, and to he tried by a grand assize, a species of extraordinary trial by jury instituted by King Henry II. with consent of Parliament, by way of alternative offered to the choice of the tenant cr defendant under such writ, instead of the barbarous and unchristian mode of duelling ; for. from the Conquest to. the time of Henry II. the only decision of these writs was by wager of battle,. In our Assize report, last summer, we gave the particulars of what occurred at the time of the election of tbe Knights who were to try this cause, together with their names. We understand there has not been one tried in Shrewsbury in the recollection of the oldest individual, and so seldom do they occur any where, that Mr. Baron Garrow said he had never presided at the trial of one, nor been professionally engaged in more than one, which was inauy years ago. Whilst the Associate was calling over the names of the Knights, Mr. Jervis, leading counsel for tbe tenant, rose, and said, 44 Mr. Uuder- Sheriff, I here tender you a demi- mark for the use ofhis Majesty." Unfortunately only twelve instead of sixteen Knights appeared. Mr. Jervis, therefore, proposed to the demandant's counsel to go on by consent, and offered to enter into bonds to abide by whatever decision was given ; but Mr. Campbell said, that the demise being joined by right, must be proved by sixteen ; and Baron Garrow was of opinion, that the Court above would say this is a solemn case, and we will not suffer the proceedings under it to be broken in upon, and stated that, in issues sent down by the Court of Chancery to be tried, no consent would justify their dispensing with the examinations to be taken. The Knights who ap- peared* very handsomely offered either to come again on Monday, or stay in town whilst four others should be sent for, aud Mr. Baron Garrow atone time had given directions for the Under- Sheriff to send for them, in hopes that Mr. Justice Bayley would be able to hear it in the other Court, but he signifying that, it would not be in his power, the hearing of it was obliged to be postponed until next Assizes, on account of there being at the time ( Saturday morning) several causes undisposed of. — One of the witnesses is 97 years of age. * Sir Edward Smythe, Bart.

Though the name of Viscount Grnnville appears iu tbe Cause List ns plaintiff", the action w as in reality brought by the Lilleshall Company of Ironmasters, of which he is one, against the defendant, who is a wharfinger at Stourport, to recover the sum of £ 40. 18s. 7d. paid by the company in satisfaction of a bill of exchange indorsed by them to bim, ihey being, as they contended, at the time of such pay- ment, ignorant of the circumstances under w hich the bill was dishonoured. The bill was dated Dec. 3,1821, and was drawn by a person of tbe name of Bennet, upon and accepted by George Peck, of Oxford Street, London, payable 4 months afler date, viz. 6th of April, 1822. It was given to tbe defendant by the plaintiffs, in discharge of an account due from them to bim, and had passed through a variety of bands, but was returned dis- honoured. And in fact, as stated hy ihe plaintiff** counsel, it turned out that, instead of being presented on tbe 6ib, it was not presented until tbe 9th of April. Tbe bill thus dishonoured came back to tbe defendant, aud was by bim returned to the plaintiffs, who had received it from a person of the name of Skitt, but on account of bis name not appearing on ihe back of it, he was released from responsibility ; it was, however, returned to a Mr. Phipson, of Birming- ham, who immediately sent it back to ibe plaintiff's, aud Mr. Horton, one ofthe Company, on so receiving it back, wrote to ibe defendant as follows :— 44 Sir, before I left home tuis morning, I desired Mr. Wolley to send you a copy of Mr. Phipson's letter, by which you will see lhat the bill has not been regularlv pre- sented, since when, I bave tried the person from whom I look it, and he has, on the same ground, re- fused to take it back. I therefore send tbe bearer oa purpose tbat no delay may occur in tracing it buck " Mr. Horton also stated in a letter, that he shoult! call on defendant and adjust it.* He did not, hoviever, call until the 18th. At the time the bill was returned by the defendant to the plaintiffs, Mr. Horton's name appeared thereon as an indorser, but on bis see ng it afterwards that name was struck out. Plaintiff s not having satisfied defendant for it, bis attorney, Mr. Bird, of Kidderminster, on the 25th of April, v rote to them, saying— 44 I am aware of the grounds ou which you refuse payment of the bill, but that is no answer to Mr Heath's demand;" aud requesting a remittance to prevent adverse proceedings. The plaintiffs then consulted their professional advisers,, who, on the27th, replied to Mr. Bird's letter, say ing, Mr. Horton had shewn them the letter, and they, had recommended him to pay the money without prejudice to any irregularity in the bill, antecedent to the notice given to Mr. Horton; at same time enclosing a draft for the amount. Having thus p » aid the money for the Lill, the question for tbe Jury to decide was, whether, at tbe time of paying it, they knew that which they bad set up as a ground of defence, namely, its not being regularly presented.— Vcr^ cf for defendant. * This circumstance the professional gentkmen for the plaintiff's said tbey were not acquainted fi ith » COTTON v. BLOCKLEY. Tbe parties in this action agreed to refer the case to J. Bather, Esq. who has awarded tbe plaintiff £- 200, subject to the opinion of the Court above on a> point of law. * Tbe account was not kept in a book, but chalked on the door, and thence occasionally copied upon a handboard and shewn to Davies, who eutcrcd an account of it in a book of hisows. THE EAItL OF BRIDGEWATER v. GREGORY. The noble plaintiff is Lord of the manor of Dod- ington, near Whitchurch, within which manor is a certain pool or water, known by the name of tbe Brown Moss, that is well stocked with fish. The defendant, Mr. Lloyd Gregory, is writer to an at- torney, and having been in the practice of fishing in the Brown Moss without permission, a notice, signed by the plaintiff, and dated ou the 13th Sept. 1821, was served upon the defendant on 27th of November, by which he was informed, that be would be prose cuted if he fished in il any more. Notwithstanding this notice, the defendant did not desist; tbe plaintiff, therefore, to prevent him ar. d other trespassers, brought this action merely for tbe preservation of bis own rights, his couftsel, in opening, saying that tbey only sought nominal damages. W. W. Brookes, Esq. Steward of the manor, produced a copy of notice, service of which defendant was proved by his PrvICE v. TOM KINS. Both parties live at Upton Magna, near this town, nnd the questions tobe tried were:— Whether ibe defendant took up the plaintiff's stile, and w hat was tbe ancient direction of a certain footpath near that village ; the plaintiff contending, tbat after going over a stile into the Lower Mere Greaves, persons almost immediately turned over another stile on the left hand into the Upper Mere Greaves, and went along two or three small pieces of land to the high road ; and the defendant insisting, that when they got iuto the Lower Mere Greaves, they kept all along- if. A variety of witnesses were called to prove the footpath being as plaintiff stated, tbe existence many years ago of stiles regularly along there, and that that was tbe right road : one of them spoke to upwards of sixty years back, and indeed be bad some reason to recollect it, for tbe occupier of plain- tiff's land having caught him trespassing along his field, he took a stake out of tbe hedge and cave him a good beating, and on his telling his father, tbe answer he received was tbat it served him right, for be ought to have kept the right road ; by plaintiff's owu witnesses, however, it was admitted tbat many went tbe olher way, hut, as they said, on trespass. Tbe Upper and Lower Mere Greaves, for many years afterwards, were occupied by the same individual, and one of these occupiers put briars on tbe tops of tbe stiles to prevent persons going tbat way ; ano- ther, Mr. Pitchford, who occupied them about 16 years ago, put up fresh stiles, and at tbe time of doing so found at tbe one field the remains of oue of the ancient stiles ; and a person of the name of Humphries swore to the defendant himself taking up tbe plaintiff'' s stile, and said tbat, at tbe time, he saw a person of tbe name of Smith there. The defendant's counsel called Smith, who stated that he, by direction of defendant, took up three stiles, but did not take up the one in question, nor did be see the defendant take it up. Several witnesses were then called, w ho all swore that, until Mr. Pitchford's time, they bad regularly come all along the Lower Mere Greaves, and never been interrupted. One of these witnesses, a Mrs. Pickin, had known it, and come along it regulnrly, for upwards of fifty years ; and tbe clerk of the parish spoke to upwards of forty. In summing up, the two distinct points, namely, as to defendant taking away the stile, and as to the MORGAN & ANOTHER r. PRICE. The plaintiffs, Hugh Morgan and David Da vie*, as well as tbe defendant, are flannel manufacturers, ihe former residing at Machynlleth, and the otber iu the neighbourhood thereof, and this' was an action to recover the value of five pieces of flannel alleged by them to have been sold to defendant, but by bins denied to have beeu so, he contending that they were sold to Lewis Richards. It appeared that Richards and defendant went to plaintiffs together; defendant examined the flannel, bargained for the price, and told Richards to take one that measured 147 yards on bis shoulder. The facts of tbe delivery of tbe goods by the carrier fo defendant at the house of Richards's father ; defendant's saying lie had no dealings with plaintiffs but for flannels; that Lewis Richards bad been endeavouring to purchase them, but tbat he should not bave them; that he went to Machynlleth lo look at them and bought them; his going to Ireland, and, on being asked, after bis return, if be had disposed of Ihe flannels he had witb him, and bis saying he had not disposed of all, but that he had left part with the person who went with bim ; also his naming a day to pay for > t, and writing a letter saying he was unable to come tbat day, but would come another day, were all proved. On behalf of the defendant, Lewis Richards appeared, and attempted to shew tbat he had purchased the goods, and tliat. the other only went witb him by chance; that he went to Ireland to sell them, and disposed of them on his own account; that the defendant had no interest in the bargain ; and tbat be bad offered to pay tbe plaintiffs tbe balance. On his cross- examination, however, il came out that the offer of payment was after ibe action was commenced against ibe defendant ; and that tbe defendant went with bim to Ireland, but he said be did nol then nor now know what defendant went for ; to be snre he was present when some of the pieces were sold, but not when all were, and they did not come back together. An invoice was then shewn him, which, except 10s. agreed with one he had seen before tbat bad been sent to the defendant, and which tbe defendant bad shewn him. Verdict for plaintiff, £ 40.5s. 2d. the demand previously giveu in under a Judge's order, DOE DEM. BRADFO RD r. WHITTINGHAM. This was an action of ejectment and to recover damages for holding over the expiration of tbe term. Tbe defendant's ancestors have occupied a small farm near Wellington, in this county ( now let at a rent of £ 36), under the Trustees of Preston Hospital, since the reign of King Charles tbe First; defendant's father died about Michaelmas, 1818, and on tlie day for payment of Michaelmas rent, the defendant went and paid the rent to tbe late Mr. Bowman, who was then tbe receiver, and Mr. Bowman told him be might continue tenant us his father had been. Mr. Bowman subsequently died, and Mr. Potter was ap- pointed receiver, hut he had obtained no rent front defendant, who was distrained upon, but a friend paid the money then due. Subsequently defendant received notice to quit at last Lady- day : upon this tbe preseut action was maintained, ibe defendant con- tending that as be became tenant from Michaelmas, he was not a Ladv- day but a Michaelmas tenant, and therefore the notice was a nullity. Mr. Griffiths, assistant to Mr. Potter, deposed tbat all ihe tenants of Preston Hospital w ere considered Lad v- day tenant?, and that the accounts were annually made up to Lady- day.— The Judge put it to the Jury whether, under ihis circumstance, and the defendant having taken tbe farm to bold as bis father had done, the plaintiff was not entitled to ? i verdict.— The Jury relumed a verdict for plaintiff', with damages £ 12, being the amount of the four months rent from Lady day.
