SHOOTING AT THE MASTER OF THE ROLLS.— The Rev. H. J. Dodwell was tried at the Central Criminal Court for shooting at the Master of the Bolls with intent to murder him. The prisoner had been unsuccessful in some law proceedings which had come, upon appeal, before Sir George Jesse], and fired at the learned judge on the morning of the 22nd ult. as he was getting out of his cab in the Rolls-yard. The prisoner conducted his own defence, and made an elaborate speech to the jury. The jury found that the pistol was not charged with anything calculated to kill, and that Mr. Dodwell was labour- ing at the time under a delusion This was equivalent to a verdict of not guilty, and the jury amendfd the verdict accordingly. The prisorer was then charged with a common assault, and when the case was con- cluded and the jury were consulting, the prisoner asked permission to plead guilty, but was told that it was then too late. He was found guilty of the assault, but that he was not responsible for his actions and he will therefore be detained during her Majesty's pleasure. 1
