The Gloucestershire Assizes opened here on Thursday last, And the trial of Ann Margaret Thomas, on the charge of having, on the 3rd March last, murdered her mistress. Miss Jefleries, by betving heron the head with a stone, was ap- pointed for this day. Mr. Baron Piatt took his seat at nine o'clock, at which hour the court and all the avenues were crowded to suffocation, 1"\ that it was only with the greatest difficulty that the bar- risters and those having business on the circuit could force a war into the court. A very large number of females were among the audience. The counsel retained for the prosecution were Mr. Whit- more, and Jr. Skinner; Mr. Sergeant Alien defended the prisoner, hnt only cross-examined a few witnesses. Mr. Whitmore opened the case in an exceedingly tempe- rate speech, and then called a great number of witnesses, who tuilv supported his opening. The same witnesses were exa- mined as on the coroner's inquest, with the exception of the ghd Sullivan, who was not called. The case having been closed, Sergeant Allen addressed the jury for the prisoner. He did riot deny that the death of the deceased had been caused by the- act of the prisoner; but urged the supposition that it was done in the heat of passion in consequence of provoca- tion, and that therefore the crime amounted to manslaughter only. fiic lenrncvl judge strnraetl up, and the jury, after retiring, found the prisoner Gmilv of murder. His lordship then passed sentence of death on the prisoner, who fell down in a fainting fit, and was carried out of court.
