Stacey, from Bristol to Waterford. was totally lost on Wednesday se'nuight in a fog off Ballyhaly, 011 the-.Wexford coast, when eight persons perished—Mr. Smith of Headborough, county Waterford, his sister, Miss Smith, a relative of that name, and h?r servant, the mate and three of the crew. The Water Witch was a very fine vessel, and but recently built at an-expense of 12,000?. She ttas perhaps the fastest sailing vessel that ever floated.—" The most intense anxiety pre- vailed in Waterford on Saturday last (says the Water- ford Mail) for the safety of the passengers aud crew of the above vessel, commanded by Capt. Stacey, from a report which had reached Waterftird early on that day, that the vessel had been strawled on the county of Wexford coast, at a place called Ballyhaly. .0 In the course of the evening, Mr. Bogan, agent to the steamers that ply between this place and Bristol, received a letter from Mr. Powell, agent to Lloyd's, residing at Wexford, confirming the above statement. Immediately on the receipt of the letter, Mr. Bogan, together with a few of the proprietors, immediately proceeded to the place named, 10 render every as- sis'auce that could be given." The bodies of the mate and the three seamen above mentioned have been washed ashore.
A VERY FINE LADY; Yesterday a woman of dashing exterior and very lofty demcanour, who gave the name of Mary Williams, was brought before Mr. Combe, at the Thames Police Office, charged with attempting to commit suicide, by throwing herself into the river at Waterloo-bridge. The officer who brought the prisoner before the Magis- trate was no sootier sworn than the prisoner exclaimed, Now, Sir, use my reputation. more tenderly than that dreadfullJUrricane hasjust now used my person Mr. Combe—Oh, you were caught in it, were you ? Prisoner—I was, Sir, and I think vour officers might have paid rnoro respect to a lady than to have brought I me through such a- most horrible- storm in a boat. Mr.John Gaskin a Survcyorof Thames Police, stated that the prisoner was brought on board the Port Mahon guard-ship, off Surrey-street, Strand, between eight and nine o'clock that morning by Myers, a waterman, who charged her with attempting to drown herself. She was attired in a most splendid masquerade dress, and was wet through, and apparently dean. By the assistance of the daughters of Mr. Mitchell, the inspecting Surveyor of the Thames Police on hoard, who stripjsed her and pro- vided her with dry clothing, she soon recovered. All that he could ascertain about her was that she resided at No. 15, George-street, Adelphi, and had been to the mas- querade at the King's Theatre. Prisoner—You have found out all yon could, Mr. Police officer; and you, Sir, (addressing the magistrate) will perhaps ask for my previous character. You will have to go to Connaught-square, Edgewarc-road, and they will tell you that I rode in my carriage, kept my servants, and supported a large establishment. James Myers, a waterman; plying at Waterloo-bridge, began this evidence by stating-This morning your Worship— The prisoner here intnrrupted the waterman by ex- claiming, Sir, you and those gazing fools, who have their mouths wide open to catch all they can, shall hear the truth: I went to the masquerade with my protecior, and I remained with him until this morning enjoying the revelry. 1 accompanied him to his house in Lincoln's Inn-fields, and had scarcely put my foot on the threshold of his door when he displeased me. In a moment of pas- sion I threatened to drown myself at Waterloo bridge. He laughed, and I called a coach, which his servant as- sisted me iuto, and I ordered the coachman to drive to Waterloo-bridge. He did; I got out, and gave this man a sixpence or a shilling, and while he was preparing the boat 1 jumped into the river,and that is itil. Myers s?id a copch drove up to Waterloo-bridge, and who should jump out but the lady, in the most "elegautest" dress he ever saw. A boat, you scoundrel, a boat! exclaimed the lady; and he ran down the steps to get it ready. She threw a sixpence into the boat, but, instead of getting into it herself, she plunged headlong into the river He went in after her, an.1 she was on the point of sinking under the stage opposite King's College, when he caught her by the legs and hauled her out. One moment more and she must have gone. Mr. Combe asked if anything more was known of this very dignified lady ? Giaskir,-Your Worship, .a servant is wa iting outside to take her home. Prisoner-You had better speak for yourself, Mr. Officer, not for others. Why am I put into this filthy place? (rlluding to the dock in which she was standing.) I insist 011 caving such a degrading place. Here she walked down the steps of the dock, but was quickly brought hack.—Gas- kin said he had called on this lady's protector he said he knew no more of her than of any other woman. Prisoner—Lying varlet! he dare not have said so, or if he did. it was because he did not wish his name to transpire. Gaskin-His name is Robertson. Prisoner—Yes, and you make use of his name as if he was your critial. How much longer am 1 to remain thus degraded ? Mr. Combe, who was highly amused, and laughed heartily at the lofty airs of the prisoner, ordered her to be discharged, the waterman Myers offering to be her cicerone until she reac(!ed her lodging. The prisoner, who looked with most ineffable contempt on the poor waterman, who said he did not know what the devil to make of her, marched out of the office with a dig- nified step, amidst the laughter of the officers, and repaired to the Waterman's Arms Tavern adjoining; wil,re she remained until Mr. Robertson, her" protector," called, who sent her home in a hackney-coach.

HORRIBLE GANG OF ASSASSINS. The French Journals of last month ijaentioned the execu- tion of two persons, man and wife, named Martin, and of a servant of theirs named Rochette, but suppressed the details of the trial. This Martin and his wife, who kept a public- house or inn, were in the habit for twenty-five years of mur- dering and robbing those who took up their lodging there. The house was in a lonely place, and built, it is said, for the very purpose of murder and robbery. It was so contrived that if one person got in, there was no possibility of escape, Martin was a man of sinister and atrocious countenance, about sixty at the time of his trial. His father is said to have been hanged for assassination, and one of his brothers con- demned to the galleys. The wife was fifty-four, hideous in aspect, and is said to resemble theinfamo-ll" Bltncal. Jean Rociiette, the servant, aged forty seven, bad all theappear- ance of a ruffian. A nephew also, named Andre Martin was put on trial at the same time. They all appeared at the bar dressed after the manner of the mountaineers of Ardeche. They were tried for the murder of Antoiue Enyobras, who disappeared 011 the 12th of October, 183], and whose mutilated body was found on the banks of the Allier. There were 109 witnesses examined. Vincent Hoyer, one of them. deposed the following facts In the winter of 1C21, I was forced by the severity of the weather to stop at Martin's house, at a place called Peyrabeille. There weremauy persons there, and among them was an old man. Martin's wife asked me to draw near the fire and inquired how much I earned,and what money I had about me. She said there was a band of brigands in the neigh- bourhood, and asked what I should do if they attacked me, and whether I was a heavy sleeper. I told her I had only thirty sous about me, and that 1 slept very soundly. I was frightened at these questions. It occurred to me that I was in a slaughter-house. She then put questions to the old man, who said he was after selling a cow. When bed time arrived the people of the house told us in an im- perative tone to go to our rooms, and no longer concealed their object. The old man saw his danger, and said lie would sleep in the same room with am but they told him very drily, that he must sleep alone. When the old mau got to his room he made some objections, and I heard a voice say, Do as you like there is no other room for you.' One of Martin's daughters accompanied me to my room, and told me not to leave the duor open, in a toae of command. I examined the bed, and found large spots of blood on the clothes. I lay down, more dead than a,,ve, and in about an hour after some person came into see if I was asleep, turned over illY clothes, and finding that I had only thirty sous, did not take tbeoi, but went away. Two or three hours after I heard a kuocking'at the old man's door. Get "1'/ they said,4 it is time but no an- swer. They who made this noise went down to the ground floor, and came up again in half an hour. They knocked again calling out as before. Receiving no answer they forced open the door, and I immediately heard three times distinctly a cry of Help, help!' and then only heard in- articulate sounds, like those of a pig when the knite is at its throat. During all this time the daughters of Martin, aged from 25 to 30, were at my door, as if to watch me, singing and laughing. In the morning Martin's wife a ked me it 1 slept well, and whether I lie-aid anything. I said I never woke the whole night. I was so terrified that when I got a little from the house I ran as fast as I could, and never stopped till I found myself out of danger.' The cross- eX?m!n £ Uo? not shake any part of this evidence. The only difficulty was how he could have been induced to keep it secret so long, and whether it arose from fear or indif- ference. His testimony produced an extraordinary sf-nsa tion in Court, and upon the accused. Their only defnce was a simple denial. Laurent Chaze, a mendicant, aged tatty six, ileposed-" Two years hack returning from a journey to Louvese, I arrived after nightfall at Martin's house. Martin's wife told me they had no lodging for me. 1 told her if she let me sleep in the hayloft I would pay for that and any other accommodation. Martin said, « Will you sleep on the hay ?' I Yes,' said I, 'or wherever you put me.' I went in and saw four persons round the fire together with Marie Armand ka witness.) there were also three mon sitting at a table. One of these three then said he 1000t a heifer in returning from the fair of St. Ci i-qiies, and that-he meant to sleep that night with his friend Martin. The man who thus spoke to me was, as I since found, Enyobras. The other two men went away, Martin's wife refusing to give them any more to drink. I went to sleep in the hayloft, and Eiyobras was within six or eight paces of me. The male prisoners came up the lad- der, followed by the woman Martin, bearing a lamp and pitcher in her hand, both of which ahe gave to the men and returned down. I pretended to be asleep. The men threw themselves upon Enyobras, saying, 'you must drink this;' and instantly I heard a noise as if a man were struck on the head with a hammer. I then heard doleful sounds of 'Ob j r i' '^wo men drew near and looked at me, u 1 T^"ght 1 heard them 8*y.' He is asleep; he is not cold. The three then took ur> the body between tlfem, and conveyed it from the loft. I heard one say,' Hold fast, don t let itfall.' When they got down to the kitchen, which is under the hayloft, I heard them say, I We have made 100 crowns this night.' They came up again, and seemed to survey me with great attention. They came up this way two or three times, and I heard them again in the kitchen saying that they had not got very much. I rose at davlight, the ser- vant being the only person in the loft. I thanked them for their kindness, and offered to pay for my lod Wn^. They said they never charged for a bed 01, the hay. Thev asked me if I slept soundly, and I said yes. I left the house, and mentioned some of the circumstances, but not the whole to persons whom I met on the way to Narce."—This witness' was cross-examined for three hours, but no contmdirti, drawn from him. Being confronted with Marie Arntand, he persisted in saying that she was in Martin's house on the day he arrived there.—Many of the witnesses, under the influence either of bribe or menace, contradicted or reallv qualified their previous testimony. Nothing important, could be elicited from Marie Armand on the first day of the trial; on the second day, however, she avowed that she gave her former evidence under the influence of terror that she was at Martin's the night of the murder that a man came there who said he lost a heifer; that he took supper and went to sleep in the hayloft. A full disclosure was expected when she came to this point, but no effort could draw a word more from her. She acknowledged, however, that she saw the beggarraan Chaze arrive at the house, and going to sleep in the loft,—The trial lasted seven days During the four first the prisoners showed great confidcnce, laughed at the most appalling fpa £ of the evidence. Their manner greatly altered towards the close.— Martin, the nephew, was acquitted and discharged; the other three were found guilty of the murder of Enyobras, and executed on the 1st of October.
THE LARGEST PIG IN ENGLAND.—This prodi- gious animal, now in the possession of Mr. Tatton of Penkhull, was bred by Mr. Gosling, of Cresswel!, and fed at Treniham, the seat of the Duke of Sutherland. It weighed between sixty and seventy score 12 months ago it measnres eleven feet from snout to tail, girths thirteen feet six inches, and is considered the largest of its kind ever seen. HEALTH IN THE UNITED STATES.—The annual mortality has decreased in the United States nearly one-third in 40 years. In 1780 the rate of mortality was taken at one in 40 in 1795 at one in 45; in 1801 at one in 47; in 1811 at one in 52 5 and in 1821 at one in 58. MURDER.—On Thursday, the 26th ult. at Nib- ICY. Gioucestes-shire,a horrid murder was committed. Jasper Edwards was found murdered in his bed-room Occasioned by two cuts in the throat. At the coroner's inquest the wife told a rambling story, to make it appear that he had committed suicide. but the Jury not believing her, returned a verdict of Wilful Murder against her, Hester Edwards, and she has been com- mitted for trial. .TEuousy.-A YQnng lady of a wealthy family of Bologna, was executed on the 16th ult. for murder. Impelled by jea'ousy she succeeded in poisoning two very lovely young women, one of whom was her own cousin. She was married, and suspected her husband of committing in6delities with her two victims. The proceedings against her had continued for two vears a and her husband finding that her fate was inevilable, as there were no hopes of pardon from the Pope, on account of the enormity of her crime, died of depair a short time before her execution. MURDER AND -ST'ICIDE.-Dii ring the night of Friday last a most shocking murder was committed at Chesterfield, the particulars of which are as follows —A person of the name ofWhittaker, who had been in the constant habit of ill-treating his wife, returned home on Friday night in a state of intoxication. Aftet- they had been in bed some time, the Apprentice bov heard the cry of "Murder!" and much quarrelling taking place in his master's bed room. This, howevei-, being so frequent an occurrence he did not take any notice of it. The next morning, when he got up, he did not find any one stiriug as usual. He sat in the house until noon, when he got his dinner, and was not alarmed, in consequence of his master and mistress often lying late. He continued in the house until the evening, when he became fearful something had hap- pened to them, and then went to his father's house. The lad, his father, and the brother of Whittaker re- turned to the premises, and went upstairs, where they found both Whittaker and his wife in bed quite dead. Whittaker's throat was cut, and his wife's also cut from ear to ear. An infant child about six months old was also in bed between them, and nearly dead, immersed in blood, the whole presenting, as may be conceived, a most horrid spectacle.-A coroner's it.- quest was held upon the bodies, when the jury found a verdict of 1, Wilful murder, and felo-de-se" ugainst Whittaker, and he was buried at night, of course°\vith- ont the burial service being read over him. FATAL ACCIDENT.-On Saturday last, in conse- quence of a waggoner having thrown a heavy load of paving stones against the side of an arch over some ceUaring in front of No. 5, Priory-street, it gave way, and an industrious youth named Gam, who happened to be crossing the arch at the time, fell with it into « large dry well, and was completely buried beneath the stones and rubbish. He expired in a few minotes after being extricated from his dreadful situation. An quest was held on the body at the Kiug's Head, on Monday, before J. Cooke, Esq. coroner, and a respect- able jury. Verdict, Accidental Doatti"-doodand oil the materials, five sliiliiti,Chelienham Clit-anicle. DREADFUL ACClDENT.-On Friday last a man and his wife, of the names of Samuel and Sarah Hill, were missing from their work at Messrs. Southwell's carpet manufactory, i.1 Bridgnorth, and a messenger was dispatched to look after them. Oil arriving at their house on St. Mary's step, the door was locked, and suspicions were entertained as to their safety, particularly as one of the neighbours remarked that at twelve o'clock the preceding night a terrible noise had been heard near the spot. The door was forced open, and the bodies were found completely buried under stones and rubbish the feet of the bedsteads being forced through the floor. All Inquest was held on the bodies before Francis Pierpoint, Esq. coroner, and verdicts of Accidental Death" returned. It appears from thq evidence, that the house is built against a rock which is planted with shrubs, the rock forming the back of the house. The late winds and rains had caused several apertures in the rock, which had followed the veins so as to force the mass to give way. It is supposed that from three to four tons weight of stone and rubbish had fallen upon the bodies. The funerals, on Sunday, were followed by a long pro cession of fellow-woi ktnen and women from the fac. tory.-Shreui,ybury Chronicle,
