Intelligence was telegraphed from Norwich to Birming- ,i -17it, at Two o'clock yesterday morning, that the Jury had returned a verdict of "GUILTY" against RUSH, and that SENTENCE OF DEATH had been passed upon him by the Court.

TRIAL AND .CONVICTION OF ANN THOMAS. GI.OUCE.STKR, Tuesday night. 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.
JH LI U I I I L i L PnrtP.xo-MrftMEinsM.—Tut-: Lamk Waiting LAST XJGnT. On Tuesday evening, J-. W. Jackson, E-q., delivered his fare- well lecture to a respectable and more numerous audience than ive. saw at any previous evening. Mr. Jackson treated of Mesmerism and ,)Iir, in their moral and metaphysical aspects, demonstrating that they lead neither to materialism NOR fatalism, but on the contrary, indicate' the -spirituality of man's nature. and the responsibility of his position." He sooke admirably, and his speech was characterised by true philosophy and souad sense-—the only fault we tind with him is too much rapidity for a mixed audience. Samuel Evans, from this town, then stepped to the platform, and stated that he had been cured bv Mr. Davey after having been six years bedridden in conscqticnce of rheumatic pains in his legs. He had tried all the medical men he knew, and was for some time in the Swansea Infirmary, but was nothing better; he had now thrown off his crutches. He recommended all individuals to go to Mr. Davey. (TIe spoke in W els a, and the Kev.

Mr. Davey, in. the course of his address, strongly recommended the establish- ment of a philosophical institution in this town.

THE LATE Mtts THOMAS, OF HIGH-STREET.—This esteemed Christian was interred at Bethesda chapel burying-ground, on Friday evening. We observed the following ministers in the fu.- neral Revs. Messrs.

Mr. Powell, it appeared, was admitted a member of a Christian Church the same time as the deceased.
LORD CHANCELLOR'S COURT.—MAUCH 16. EVANS V. FIIOTHERO.—The Lord Chancellor delivered judg- ment in this matter to-day. The arguments were* heard before his lordship on the 14th instant, and occupied nearly the whole of the day. The Solicitor-General and Mr. James appeared for the plaintiff, and for the defendants were Mr. Walker, Q.C., and Mr. Wood, Q.C. The litigation arose out of the following circum- stances ;-Enm Richards died possessed of certain leasehold pro- perty at Merthyr Tydfil, Glamorganshire, whereupon his brother, Jenkin Richards, took possession, and continued to hold the same up to the time of his death. After the death of Jenkin Richards, the plaintiff claimed the property as his devisee, and entered into possession accordingly. About this time Thomas Richards, the eldest son of Evan Richards, who had died intestate, returned to Wales, and set up his claim as the heir-at-law of the original owner. An action of ejectment was brought against the plaintiff, and a ver- dict was found for the plaintiff. Thomas Richards afterwards sold his interest in the premises to Mr. Prothero, who, having had the letters of administration properly stamped, brought an action against the plaintiff, calling upon him to show his right to occupy the property. This document was rejected by the learned judge, as being inadmissible in evidence. The jury found a verdict for the plaintiff. The defendant was still determined to contest his Tight, and the plaintiff filed his bill in Chancery, praying that the de- fendant might be restrained from bringing further actions against him; whereupon the Vice Chancellor Wigram sant down two issues, to be tried at the Glamorganshire Assizes, held at Cardiff, in July, 18-18, before Mr. Justice Wightman. The jury again found a verdict for the plaintiff. The defendants sought to obtain a new trial; but the Vice-Chancellor Wigram refused, and ordered the costs to be paid by defendants. The defendants then appealed to the Lord Chancellor, and his lordship, having attentively listened to the arguments, and having gone through the whole of the evi- dence adduced upon the trials, said that the Court could not exer- cise its judgment without having the facts better ascertained and, being of opinion that further inquiry was necessary, directed that the Vice-Chancellor's order should be discharged, and a new trial granted. Attorneys for the plaintiff, Messrs" Perkins and James, Merthyr Tydfil; for the defendants, Mr. T. G. Phillpotts, Merthyr Tydfil.

Thomas Blyton, a lad charged with throwing stones in the Bute dock, was reprimanded and discharged. Capt. Donovan preferred a charge against Capt. Hugh Hocking, master of the biig Zoe, of Plymouth, of having entered the Bute dock under sail. The eaplain at first denied the charge, but subsequently partially admitted it; staling, as an excuse, that he was ignorant of the bv-laws, and that this was the first time he had visited Cardiff. Mr. Itecce read the clause from the act of Parliament, wherein it was clearly stated that" vessels entering the dock under sail are liable to be fined." Capt. Donovan said, he preferred the charge merely as an example to others. Fined 4<)s. and costs. henry jJrown and Alfred Richards, two lads, were charg d with havim* stolen a piece of pork from the shop of Mr. Ed. Quelcli, eating-house keeper, Bute-street. Mr. Quclch stated, that having suspicions of the prisoners, he watched them, and saw them enter the shop and take the meat. He followed them and struck Brown, by which he was obliged to drop the pork. He then gave them into custody of the police. Prisoner Brown acknowledged takiii g- the pork, and said that. complainant, struck him several t iinesse, ere) y. the mayor censured Mr. Quclch for taking the law in his own hands, and declined prosecuting, for that reason; but said he might prefer a charge against prisoner if lie chose.

Morgan John, Brulgc-street, shoemaker, was brought up charged with stabbing his wife, between two and three on Sunday morning. Prisoner denied the charge, and said that his wife was in the habit of getting drunk, and abusing him. The wife indignantly denied her husband's statement. Policc-constable Morgan was a pealed to by the husband, who said that he went into the house some time ago, by a noise, when he found the wife and a man named John Mathews, attempting to turn John out. Prisoner stated that he did not. intend to live with her again. The case was dismissed. Police*coustablc James Rogers preferred a charge against Mr. Bond, butcher, Bute-street,.of having used abusive language towards him. Nir. Bond denied the charge, and sdd that he asked Morgan to disperse a mob collected about a number of Greeks, but instead of doing so he turned round and asked him Who are you V' Mr. Bond replied—" One of your masters." Morgan than collared him. Mr. R. Davis, tailor, Bute-street, corroborated Mr. Bond's statement. The mayor severely reprimanded Morgan, and told him that if he had not resigned, he should think it his duty to discharge him from the force. Morgan asked the court to remand the case he said he would bring forward witnesses to substantiate what he said. The court-said the case was dismissed.

BIRMINGHAM, MAUCH 30.—At the usual preliminary meeting of the ironmasters of South Staffordshire, East Worcestershire, and Shropshire, held at Dudley yesterday, it was resolved to maintain, at the approaching general quarterly meeting of the trade, the ex- isting prices of manufactured iron. It will he recollected that, since the meetings in January, there has been an advance of 20s. per ion. Pig-iron is scarce, and remains proportionately dear. It is understood to be the intention of the great ironmasters to ad- vance the wages of their workmen in proportion to the advance in the price of iron.

LONDON COLTN EXCHANGE. I MONDAY.-—Very little change took place during last week in prices of giain at any of the leading provincial markets. At Mark- lane to-day we had again a very small show of wheat by land car- riage samples from the home counties, and the condition being ini- proved, factors succeeded in making sales at prices similar to those current on Monday last. Foreign wheat, notwithstanding the I liberal arrival, was not offered lower, and the business done was on much the same terms as before. The scle of fjotir by no iiieaii., < brisk needy buyers had, however, to pay quite as much money as 1 on Monday last for good qualities. Barley of home growth was scarce, and* fine malting sorts maintained their value; secondary ] sorts and foreign easier to buy. Malt was the turn lower. In addition to the enormous supply of oats reported, we had a few cargoes fivsh up to-day still factors, refused to accept, lower rates than on Friday, and at Is. to Is. 6d. per quarter decline on last ? Monday's quotations a fair business was done. Beans and peas unaltered. I WHKAT— S. T. i OATS- S. S.

The best kinds were in moderate request, at Monday's quotations. All other qualities .ruled dull, and hte rates were with difficulty supported. The accounts respecting the appear- ance of the young wheat plants are very favourable. Upwards of 18.000 quarters of foreign wheat have arrived this week. This large arrival had a depressing influence upon the demand for all descriptions, at barely last week's decline in value. The show of foreign barley was good, that of English small. Fine malting samples realised full currencies. Grinding and distilling sorts a mere drug. Malt dull, and the turn in favour of the buyers. We have received 10,180 quarters of foreign oats this week, yet the shew of samples was not to say extensive. A IllOderate bu:.ines3 was doing at late prices. Beans, peas, Indian corn, and flour moved offheavily.

SM1THFIELI). Owing, doubtless, to the depressed state of our market, and the unusually low prices atwhichagrieultunÜ produce is selling, a con- siderable decline lias taken place in the.arrival of foreign stock into London during the past week. The total importation has amounted to only 9i2 head, chiefly from Rotterdam and a i ig ii In that number is included five pigs from Naples, brought hither for breeding purposes. In the preceding week we received 1,944 at the corresponding period in 1818, 1,894 and at the-same time in 1847) 1,231 head. I he beei trade ruled very heavy, at a decline in the prices of Monday last of quite 2d. per 81bs. A few very su- perior lots found buyers at 3s. Gd. per-81bs., but the general quota- tion for beef did not exceed 3s. 4d. per 81bs. There was a further increase in the supply of sheep, owing to which the demand for tha:: kind ef stock was in a very sluggish state. Prime old Downs were mostly disposed of at last week's prices, viz., from 4s. to 4s. 4d. per 8H>s. in the wool, but all other breeds ruled 2d..per 8ibs. lower, at which a clearance was not effected. Lambs were in fair ret) nest, at from 5s. 4d. to 6s. 6d. per 81bs. From the hleaf Wight 30 heaù came to hand per railway.

The quantity of Wool on offer in the private contract market is but moderate, although it is well known that the farmers hold unusually large stocks. Most descriptions are steady, and prices are well supported.
HOPS. BOROUGH. MONDAY.—No change worthy of notice has taken place in the demand for, or prices of, any kinds of hops. Fine samples are scarce, and quite us dear. Old hops are selling as low as 10s. per cwt. New Ilops- Sussex Pockets 44s. to 60s. Weald of Kents. 52s. to 68s. Mid. and East Kents 63s. to 130»

PROVISION MARKET — MONDAY.—The arrivals last week from Ireland were 670 firkins butter, and 790 bales bacon; and from foreign ports 5,440 casks butter. In Irish butter there was a fair amount of business transacted last week, at irregular prices, according to quality. In foreign we have no alteration to notice. ° We experienced an improved demand for Irish bacon since this day se'nnight, and an advance of Is. to 2s. per cwt. was obtained.

The supply of new batter increases, and prices are declining. The stock, of old Dorset buttet is now worked up pretty close, but re- cent sales have been made at ruinously low rkitim.
LIVERPOOL CORN EXCHANGE. Tu ESDA Y.-At ourlllHrket this morning there was a fair attend- ance of the neighbouring millers and a liberal show of samples of wheat and flour. A moderate business was done in wheat, at a reduction of fully Id. per 701b. on fine red Baltic wheat, and 2d. on inferior descriptions of Mediterranean. Oats and oatmeal moved off slowly at about the prices of this dav se'nnight. In barley, beans, and peas there was little doing, and we do not alter our quotations. Barrel flour did not meet with a free sale, though offered at 23s. per barrel. Sack flour must be noted 6d. to Is. per sack lower. There were few buyers of Indian corn in attendance to-day, and for fine yellow Is. per quarter less money would have been taken.

'n — 4m, ■ -— =■ in Norwich. But as it grew again he abandoned it but made no secret of its possession. Chestney first swore that she could not distinguish the man, and subsequently that it was him. Could they believe her?—They could not convict a man of murder upon such testimony. It was said the murderer carried his head aside. Did no other man do so ? Stress had been laid upon the shape of the bullets. It was notorious that bul- lets after they had been once fired lost their original shape. Considering the darkness of the night, the murder could not have been committed in double the time he was out; when he was well known to the servants at StanfLld Hall, was it likely he would have gone th 're. It was absurd to suppose that Siiidford, an educated person, would have witnessed the deeds. The prisoner was proceeding with his defence, when the judge said, that as the jury appeared quite fatigued by their long sitting, he wished to know how long the prisoner's defence was likely to last ? The prisoner said, some hours longer. In consequence the Court, at eight o'clock, adjourned—the prisoner having been about ten hours and a half OIl his legs. On Wednesday, Rush continued his defence. lie said the nature of his relations in respect of property with Mr. Jermy •wei\; such that it was to his interest that he should live, rather than die. If he had intended to commit the horrible crime of murder, did they think he would have hid Emily Sandford at -l'otitsh ? She said he trembled. He did; as, from what he had heard at the Hall, and his differences with the family, he feared he should be suspected but when he went to bed he was as lirm as at that moment. His conscience accused him of no guilt. God Almighty if I had done such a thing, I -eould not have looked you in the face—I should have been mal by this time." The coat he had o* :t night of the mur- der he had buried in the pig stye, knowing that he should be suspected (sensation). He should produce it. Mrs. Jermy said the murderer w ire a yrrey coat, not a cloak, and differed altogether from Watson. They could not believe such contm- d ctory statements, nor convict him upon them. He implored them to take ample time to consider their verdict—the impro- bability of his being the murderer—for the sake of his dear young children, now bunting with suspense, who were desti- tute of a mother, and who prayed they would give them back their father. If condemned, the time would come when his innocence would b^ manifest. Might God give them wise un- derstanding to s?e his guihletssuess, and*to -return a verdict of Not Guilty. Rush finished at twelve o'clock. He called the following evidence :— Mr. Waugh, a solicitor, said 'he would not believe Howe on his oath, unless supported by respectable testimony. The lad Savory proved the littering of the straw some time 4) fore the murder. That the boots worn by Rush that night were left to dry at the fire. Sat up one night to watch for poachers. Saw Rush last at half-past saven. Last time he 'B.l\ him that night he had his in-door dress on. By the Judge; He got the boots at half-past five. He washed them and put them at the fire, where they remained till he gave them to the police. Mr. Hyde, accountant, swore that Howe had jocularly offered to give evidence on either side for twenty pounds. At this stage the prisoner not being able to obtain material facts in his favour, g st into a passion, exclaiming, What is the use of calling more witnesses when new ones are called at the last moment. I don't want to ask any more questions. Nor do I want any more witnesses." He then sat sulkily down, having previously intimated that tit" pig had destroyed the coat to which he had ref erred. M Bylç", rooo at three o'clock to reply, and in an a' ie speech scattered to the winds the weak defence of the pri- soner. In the course of its delivery he was repeatedly and vio- lently interrupted by the prisoner, which caused his lordship to order his removal; promising to be quiet. lie was allowed to remain, yet he at times interfered throughout its whole de- livery, but with modified violence. He concluded shortly after five. Mr. Baron Rolfe commenced summing up the evidence about six o'clock. He had spoken about an hour at the time the dis- patches left Norwich (half-past six o'clock, Wednesday even- ing), and said that. he should occupy two or three hours more ..in its delivery.
