Mr. John Carruthers, tobacco manufacturer, was returning the other night from Ormskirk fair when, turning a corner a short distance through the Burscoagh tollbar, he was thrown from his horse. His head struck the ground, and he was picked up dead. A Baronet's Daughter in the Folice-celL— The Glasgow police apprehended a woman last week named Margaret Lindsay or Cowan, on a charge of uttering base coin. When she was brought to the police-office on this charge two detective officerB went 'to her lodgings in Alison-street, with the view of making further inquiries regarding her. In the course of their investigation they discovered, in the. posses- sion of her mother, who occupied the same lodgings, two pawn tickets—one for a table-cloth and the other for a sheet, pledged by her, while they were the pro- perty of her landlady. The owner, unaware of this transaction until this discovery, at once committed her to the officers. Her name is Phillis Fettes or Lindsay, daughter of the late Sir William Fettes Bart., who, it is said, omitted to make a suitable pro- vision for her in his will, when arranging for the endowment of an hospital at Comely Bank.; The trustees on Sir "\Yilliam s estate, however gave her an allowance from the funds under their control: but it is said that after the decease of the late Lord Ruther- furd this was discontinued. At length, after enduring several privations, and disposing of all her marketable property, she, in a state of utter destitution, pledged these articles for a few coppers. She pleaded guilty to the charge, and was sentenced to thirty dave' im- prisonment.
