LIFE AND ADVENTURES OF MARTIN…
LIFE AND ADVENTURES OF MARTIN CHUZZLEWIT. Those, and they are not a few, who predicted the failure of Boz in his future works of fiction, will be agreeably surprised at the rich, the inimitable humour of the present number. Gibbon became lacrymose, and whimpered when he had finished his "Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire," because he had no more history to write. Our droll friend Boz has no idea of such softness. He laughs throughout Ms work, makes his reader laugh with him, too, exhausts old worlds of fiction, and then imagines new, with all the buoyancy and hilarity of the first sprightly runnings of his teeming muse and at the end we find him the same caustic, humorous, good-natured soul that first won upon the world, and set it laughing. If the following delicious morsel will not go. down with our readers, we shall have each and every one of them brained with my lady's fan THE SCHOOL-MASTER AT HO.NIE-li MRS. TODGERS'S BOARDING-HOUSE. Mr. Pecksniff had followed his younger friends up-stairs, and taken a chair at the side of Mrs. Todgers. He had also spilt a cup of coffee over his legs without appearing to be aware of the circumstance nor did he seem to know that there was muffin on his knee. And how have they used you down-stairs, sir V asked the hostess. 44 Their conduct has been such, my dear madam," said Mr. Pecksniff, as I can never think of without emotion, or remember without a tear. Oh, Mrs. Todgers!" 4tMy goodness!" exclaimed that lady. "How low you are in your spirits, sir!" "I am a man, my dear madam," said Mr. Pecksniff, shedding tears, and speaking with an imperfect articulation, "but I am also a father. I am also a widower. My feelings, MrSi Todgers, will not consent to be entirely smothered, like the young children in the Tower. They are grown up, and. .the raore-Ipress the bolster on them, the more they look round the corner of it." ,1re suddenly became conscious of the bit of muffin, and stared at it intently, shaking his head the while, in a forlorn and imbecile manner, as if he regarded it as his evil genius, 'â:úcl mildly reproached it. She was beautiful, Mrs. Todgers," he said, turning his glased eye again upon her, without the least preliminary -iI "She had a small property." 44 So- r have heard," cried Mrs. Todgers, with great u Those are her daughters," said Mr. Pecksniff, pointing Out the young ladies with increased emotion. *2Hrs.

When theysay they havn't improved, ma'am," whis- pered Mr. Pecksniff, looking at her with profound mystery, attd motioning her to advance her ear a little closer to his month. When they say they havn't improved, ma'am, AtaA the premium was too high, they lie! I should't wish it ? bementionad.; you will understand me; but I say to you, eld friend, i*. Base wretches they must be said Mr. Todgers. "Madam," said Mr. Pecksniff, you are right. I respect you for that observation. A word in your ear. To Parents and Guardians. This is in confidence, Mrs. Todgers." The strictest, of course cried that lady. To Parents and Guardians," repeated Mr. Pecksniff. An eligible opportunity now offers, which unites the advantages of the best practical architectural education with the comforts of a home, and the constant association with some, who, however humble their sphere and limited their capacjty-obsenc !-are not unmindful of their moral re- sponsibilities." Mrs. Todgers looked a little puzzled to know what this might mean, as well she might; for it was, as the reader may perchance remember, Mr. Pecksniff's usual form of advertising when lie wanted a pupil; and seemed to have no particular reference, at present, to anything. But Pecksniff held up his finger as a caution to her not to interrupt him. Do you know any parent or guardian, Mrs. Todgers," said Mr. Pecksniff, who desires to avail himself of such an opportunity for a young gentleman 1 An orphan would be preferred. Do you know of any orphan with three or four hundred pounds ]" Mrs. Todgers reflected, and shookxher head. When you hear of an orphan with three or four hundred pounds," said Mr. Pecksniff, let that dear orphan's friends apply, by letter, post-paid, to S.P., post-office, Salisbury. I don't know who he is exactly. Don't be alarmed, Mrs. Todgers," said Mr. Pecksniff, falling heavily against her. Chronic—chronic Let's have a drop of something to drink." Bless my soul, Miss Pecksniffs," cried Mrs. Todgers, aloud, your dear pa's took very poorly Mr. Pecksniff straightened himself by a surprising effort as every one turned hastily towards him and standing on his feet, regarded the assembly with a look of ineffable wisdom. Gradually it gave place to a smile, a feeble, help- less, melancholy smile bland, almost to sickness. Do not repine, my friends," said Mr. Pecksniff, tenderly. Do not weep for me. It is chronic." And with these words, after making a futile attempt to pull of his shoes, he fell into the fire-place. The youngest gentleman in company had him out in a second-yes, before a hair upon his head was singed, he had him on the hearth-rug—Her father Jinkins and Gander took the rest upon themselves, and made him as comfortable as they could on the outside of his bed and when he seemed disposed to sleep, they left him. But before they had all gained the bottom of the staircase, a vision of Mr. Pecksniff, strangely attired, was seen to flutter on the top landing. He desired to collect their sen- timents, it seemed, upon the nature of human life. My friends," cried Mr. Pecksniff, looking over the banisters, let us improve our minds by mutual inquiry and discussion. Let us be moral. Let us contemplate existence. Where is Jinkins 1" Here," cried that gentleman. Go to bed again To bed!" said Mr. Pecksniff, Bed! 'Tis the voice of the sluggard, I hear him complain you have woke me too soon, I must slumber again. If any young orphan will repeat the remainder of that simple piece from Doctor Watts's collection, an eligible opportunity now offers." Nobody volunteered. This is very soothing." said Mr. Pecksniff, after a pause, Extremely so. Cool and refreshing particularly to the legs! The legs of the human subject, my friends, are a beautiful production. Compare them with wooden legs, and observe the difference between the anatomy of nature and the anatomy of art, Do you know," said Mr. Peck- sniff, leaning over the banisters, with an odd recollection of his familiar manner among new pupils at home, that I should very much like to see Mrs. Todgers's notion of a wooden leg, if perfectly agreeable to herself!" As it appeared impossible to entertain any reasonable hopes of him after this speech, Mr. Jinkins and Mr. Gander went up-stairs again, and once more got him into bed but they had not descended to the second floor before he was out again nor, when they had repeated the process, had they descended the first flight before he was out again. In a word, as often as he was shut up in his own room, he darted out afresh, charged with some new moral sentiment, which he continually repeated over the banisters, with ex- traordinary relish, and an irrepressible desire for the im- provement of his fellow-creatures that nothing could subdue.
THE HORRORS OF TRANSPORTATION
THE HORRORS OF TRANSPORTATION At the Liverpool Assizes on Tuesday last, one George Robinson, alias Saxon, pleaded Guilty" to the charge of having illegally returned from transportation, and when brought up for sentence entered into a long and singular statement, which was listened to by a crowded court with great attention. From this it appeared, that in 1820, being then but IS years of age, he had been convicted of a high- way robbery, at Pendleton. He received sentence of death, but was finally transported for life. He had, however, an irresistible desire to return to his native land, and some time after his arrival at Sydney made an attempt to escape by swimming off to a brig lying in the roads, and succeeded in concealing himself below until she was at sea. She was driven back, however, by stress of weather, he was given up to the authorities, received 100 lashes, and was sent to a penal settlement, first at Hunter's River, and afterwards at Macquarrie-harbour. For 12 months at a time he never had the irons off his legs. He described his situation as in. tolerable, without any communication with his friends, shut out from the world, and with hardly a hope for the future. He determined again to make an attempt to escape. He left the colony with several others. Three days after they were attacked by the natives; several of them were wounded, and all their clothes and provisions were carried off. To go forward in this condition was almost hopeless,—to go back was to suffer again a punishment of 100 lashes, and to be condemned to work in the gang reserved for the worst criminals. They resolved to go on. They lost themselves in the Blue Mountains and wandered about naked 60 days, living on what they could pick up in the bush, cr along the shore, to which they were finally conducted by another party of the natives. They were then nearthe site of Port Philip. -Here they fell in with another tribe, by whom they were taken and given up to the authorities. They were conveyed to Coal River naked as they were. They there were allowed a blanket to cover them, but even this they were obliged to leave behind when they were shipped on board a Govern- ment vessel which was taking coals to Sydney and, but for some canvass which they were allowed to have to cover them, they would have had to lie naked on the coals in the hold. They were landed in this plight at Sydney. There public charity supplied them with some clothing, but one of his companions, for six months, had nothing but a pair of tronsers. They were sentenced to receive 100 lashes, and to be sent back to Macquarrie-harbour. Their wretched state was such, however, that the first part of the sentence was not inflicted, the medical man having made a representation that prevented it. He remained at Macquarrie-harbour some time, when he again, with some others, got away in a whale- boat, and ran along the coast for nine days, having made a sail by fastening together the shirts of the party. They were obliged, by want of provisions, to put into Hobart-town, and were again sent back to Macquarrie-harbour, and placed on Big Island—the depot for the worst offenders. He des. cribed the horrors of this place as being more than language could paint. Several, he said, had committed murder that they might be removed to Sydney for trial, though certain after this short respite death would be the punishment of their crime. He told a singular tale of one Pearce, who had attempted to escape with several others. Provisions failing, they were obliged to sacrifice one to save the rest. All perished in this way, till Pearce and another alone re- mained. They watched, each conscious of the other's intention, for 43 hours, until Pearce got an opportunity of killing his companion. He was taken, and again escaped with one Cox, whom he also killed, and for this lie was finally executed. At this horrible place the prisoner said he remained upwards of seven years, when he was sent to Hobart-town. He again escaped on board a vessel, and concealed himself till she was 21 days at sea. The captain, however, gave him up on his arrival at St. Helena. He was sent back to the Cape, and thence to Robins's Island, where he worked for seven months, with 251b. of irons upon him. He was then sent to Macquarrie-harbour. His sole wish had been to see his native land, and he expressed a hope that his sufferings and his good conduct would recom- mend him to the merciful consideration of the authorities. Mr. Baron Parke said the tale which he had related would he trusted, help to dissipate any idea that might be lurking in the minds of any who might hear it, that transportation was a light punishment. It was his duty simply to pass on him the sentence, that he should be transported again for the term of his natural life. The prisoner bowed respectfully, and was removed from the bar. The appearance of the man was calculated to procure cre- dence for the history he related. There was a remarkable expression of suffering and hardship in his countenance, and there was something very moving in the manner in which he received the sentence that was to consign him again to the horrors he had been describing. —
EXTRAORDINARY CHARGE OF BIGAMY…
EXTRAORDINARY CHARGE OF BIGAMY AT MONMOUTH. A case of bigamy, which has for some time been the gene- ral topic of conversation in this town, came on for hearing in the Town Jury Room, before Mr. T. Gratrex, the mayor. The proceedings excited the greatest interest. The subject of these proceedings is a young woman, 24 years of age, named Eliza Ann Dent, otherwise Morgan. The prosecution was instituted by Mr. F. B. Wall, and the charge against the prisoner, who was apprehended on pre- vious day, was, That she did feloniously intermarry with one Richard Stanley Wall, her husband, Edward Dent, being then alive." In order to render the case intelligible, it will be necessary to lay a succinct account of prior cir- cumstances before our readers. Mr. R. S. Wall has for some time held the situation of organist at the parish church, at Monmouth, and a few years since the unfortunate woman the subject of the present inquiry, was one of the choir. An intimacy sprang up between Mr. Wall and Eliza Ann Morgan, the result of which was a child, which died shortly after the birth. The parties continued on terms of intimacy till the latter part of 1839, when the riots in Monmouthshire rendered it necessary to billet troops in the town, among which were a troop of the 12th Lancers, when a private, named Peat, belonging to the \1et"chme:Dtl- made proposals of marriage to Eliza Morgan, and they were married by license on the 1st of January, 1840. Dent's wife shortly afterwards left him, having heard that he had another wife, and obtained a situation in London, where she was followed by Mr. Wall, who married her at a registrar's-oflice in the district of St. Pancras. The marriage was kept a secret. Subsequently it came to Mr. Wall's knowledge that Dent had been married before, and he was paying his addresses to a young lady of good family and expectations, in Mon- mouth, and with whom he was on the eve of marriage. The friends of Dent's wife caused inquiries to be made, and being satisfied that Dent had been married before, made a communication to the friends of the young lady to that effect, which of course broke off the correspondence with Mr. Wall. That person denied his liability to support his wife, who came down to Monmouth and threw herself on the parish for relief. Upon that the overseers of the poor obtained a warrant to compel the attendance of Mr. Wall before the magistrates to show cause why he refused or neglected to support his wife, which warrant the constable was enable to execute, and application was made to have the female apprehended on a charge of bigamy. Mr. Harrison appeared for the prosecution, and Mr. Ga- lindo for the defence. Susannah Walts sworn—I am a native of Monmouth. I remember a troop of the 12th Lancers being here. I knew a private in the troop named Dent. I know Eliza Aim Morgan, the prisoner, and was present in the parish church on New Year's day, 1840, when she was married to him. I saw him last Thursday, at Dundalk, in Ireland, and am convinced it was the same man who was married to the prisoner in Monmouth church in 1840. The Rev. G. Roberts performed the ceremony. The certificate of the second marriage was then put in. Richard Stanley Wall sworn-I was married to the pri- soner in the St. Pancras Register Office on the 4th of July last. I married her in the name of Morgan. My real name is Richard Stanley Wall. I had known the prisoner before that some six or seven years. Mr. Galindo—Were you aware ef her marriage with Dent ? Mr. WTall—I must decline answering that question. I cannot say where I was in Jan., 1840. I don't know the the name of the person who performed the marriage cere- mony between us. There were two witnesses at the mar- riage, but I cannot recollect their names. Mr. F. B. Wall, brother of the last witness, sworn--I inspected the register of marriages at the Registry Office of St. Pancras. It might be two months ago. The certificate I produce is a copy of that register. (It showed that a mar- riage had been solemnised between Richard Stanley Wall and the prisoner.) Cross-examined by Mr. Galindo-I have known my brother called Richard Smart Wall. Never knew him called Richard Strong Wall. Never recollect having witnessed a document signed by him Richard Strong Wall. I believe my brother was christened at Bristol, but cannot tell the name of the church. The Rev. G. Roberts, vicar of Monmouth, sworn—The certificate produced is a copy of the register of the marriage performed by me between Eliza Ann Morgan and Edward Dent. The prisoner is the same person. Mr. Harrison was about to put a question to the rev. gentleman, with a view of showing he had written to the officer of Dent's company, and the reply, to show that Dent denied having been married before but Mr. Galindo objected to the question, and it was not per- sisted in. Mr. Galindo contended it should be shown the second marriage had been performed by a person authorised. That was by no means clear at present. The learned gen- tleman argued the point at considerable length, and cited various authorities but the mayor thought sufficient had been shown to warrant him in committing the prisoner for trial. The prisoner, acting under the advice of Mr. Galindo, declined saying anything in the present stage of the pro- ceedings and on being called on to affix her signature to the words I have nothing to say," boldly wrote the name of Eliza Ann Wall. The mayor stated his willingness to take bail-which was immediately tendered herself in E40., and two sureties in JC20. each, to answer the charge at the forthcoming assizes. As Mr. Wall was leaving the court he was taken into custody on the warrant previously granted for his apprehen- sion, for refusing to support his wife, but was liberated immediately. NORTH WALES, BEAUMARIS, THURSDAY, MARCH 23. (Before Mr. Justice Williams ) CRIM. CON.-EVANS V. ELLIOTT. This was a special jury case, and one of alleged criminal conversation, in which Mr. Welsby opened the pleadings, and Mr. Jervis stated the case. The action was undefended. It appeared from the evidence that the plaintiff was about 24 years of age, that he was a native of some place near Tam- worth, and that after having been paying his addresses for several months, his marriage took place in Shropshire. The lady was the daughter of a solicitor at Wenlock, who died shortly before the marriage. At the time of her nuptials she was about 18 years of age, extremely handsome, and of most accomplished and fascinating manners and address. Immediately after the marriage had been solemnized, the happy pair left Wenlock for the Island of Anglesea, N.W., where they continued to reside up to the time of the alleged delinquency 1m terms of mutual kindness and affection. Many instances of the strong attachment entertained and manifested towards her by Mr. Evans were detailed, which seemed to leave no doubt that he had been a most faithful, affectionate, and confiding husband. Towards the latter end of last November, the defendant, who had scarcely attained his 20th year, went on a visit to the house of the plaintiff, where he remained about a fortnight. During his stay Mr. Evans fancied that a more than ordinary intimacyAad been springing up between his wife and their visiters, which caused him considerable uneasiness, but about which he was deter- mined to have more satisfactory proof before he even intimated his suspicions. Accordingly, on the morning of the 2nd of December last he went out to shoot, after having in the first place asked Mr. Elliott to accompany him on the excursion. The latter declined, upon the ground that he was labouring under serious indisposition. On the return of Mr. Evans, he instructed his housemaid to proceed imme- diately to his room, without telling her for what purpose, and there she saw her mistress in bed with Mr. Elliott, who was undressed. When Mr. Evans was informed of the cir- cumstance, he rushed up stairs, and instantly turned his wife and her paramour out of the house. Mr. Robert Wilson Leschman, a surgeon, residing at Lichfield, who had been for many years acquainted with the plaintiff, deposed to the marriage having taken place, and to the happy and affectionate terms on which the parties had lived after their return to Wales. Ann Davies, the housemaid, deposed to Mr. Elliott having come on a visit to the house, to his having stopped a fort- night within a day or two, and to her having gone to the room at her master's desire, and discovered the parties in bed together. She said she had never observed any previous liberties between Mr. Elliott and her mistress. Ann Jones deposed tlfkt Mr. Evans and his wife had come to lodge at her house in Beaumaris some time i-ii the April of last year, that they left in October, and that they seemed to be sincerely attached to each other. To the judge.—She never saw the defendant, he not hav ing visited them at her house. The case for the prosecution having closed, The judge said it had been clearly proved, that daring the brief space of a forthight the defendant had succeeded in seducing the affections of the lady, and perpetrating the of- fence for which the action was brought. The only question for the jury was the due amount of damages to be given in the case. The couple appeared to have been welL paired but who the defendant was had not been stated, neither had any proof been given of his means. The damages claimed were 1:5,000, but it would have been little wonder, under the aggravated circumstances, had they been £ 50,000. The jury found for the plaintiff-Damages JE500. THE OPIUM TRADE.—The opium for the Chinese market is procured solely from our Anglo-Indian possessions, the Patna and Benares from the corresponding districts of the name in Bengal, and the Malwa from Bombay. The two former are exported in small cakes, the latter in balls, each about the size of a 32-pound shot. They are packed in the dried leaf and stocks of the poppy, and sent on to China in fast sailing clippers. It being a great objects to be first in the market, there is at all times great competitors among the mercantile houses on this point. The clipper no sooner ar- rives at Macao than she immediately proceeds to transfer a portion of her cargo to receiving-ships, stationed at well- known positions on the coast of China. These ships are always effectively manned and armed, to enable them to resist any sudden attack, either by the mandarins or pirates, who rove about this coast in great numbers. They for the most part lie at anchor some miles from land, and at stations where the Chinese opium merchant, from long habit, knows where to find them. Here they are always certain of ob- taining a ready sale for the drug, and at prices which repay the original purchaser, at times, many hundreds per cent. SAD RENCONTRE.—The crew belonging to the Sovereign fishing snacksmack on returning to Barking, a few days ago, reported to their owners, Mr. Hughes, of that place, the loss of the captain and mate, under the following circumstances —It appeared that while fishing off the coast of Holland the nets were drawn, and a dispute having arisen between the captain (Stephens) and the mate (Hagarty) as to the part of the deck in which the fish should be placed, the former struck the latter. Both immediately closed in, and in their struggle for mastery both rolled overboard. An alarm was given by one of the crew, who had witnessed the me- lancholy occurrence, and all hands were immediately on deck to render assistance. The time at which the unfortu- nate occurrence took place was half-past eleven o'clock on a very dark night; and though the crew kept a sharp look out during the night, not a trace of the unfortunate men was observed, nor had their bodies been found when the boat came away. The unfortunate affair is rendered the more melancholy by the fact of both the men having left behind them wives and large families, who are solely dependant on their exertions for their maintenance. NEW ZEALAND.-HINT TO EMIGRANTS.—The following is an extract of a letter from a settlement in this colony, and will, perhaps, operate as a hint to others to endure the ills they know, than fly to others that they know not of: With regard to working men's labour, I shall just tell you C? as far as I know to be true. A joiner, when he has got work, earns £ 3 a-week a sawyer, £ 2 15s. a day-labourer, some get 5s. a-day, 4s. a-day, and I know men who have been glad to engage for 3s. a-day and their meat, and have to keep a family of five or six children. The New Zealand Company employ as many emigrants as possible to go on the survey of the colony at 30s. a-week and their rations. Brick-making is begun here since I have been in the colony, and the price is 1;7 a thousand and as they are now be- ginning to build another house for Colonel Wakefield, the bricklayers get 10s. a day. Tailors, I cannot get to know their wages, as there are but few here, and all the clothes chiefly come from Sydney. Shoemakers is one of the best trades here. As I have now sent you a true account of this colony, as far as I have got information, I say that a man before lie emigrates to this part of the country had better get a broom and sweep the streets. The emigrants that we brought out in our ship would give all they possess to be at home again. They have to pay rent for a mud-house, about six yards by four, 5s. a week; no bedroom upstairs, but on the flat ground, and a wooden partition to part the bed-place away, with no flag or boarded floors, but the solid earth, and a hole in the chimney, and no fire-grate in the best house in New Zealand. They who are a little better off can buy land very cheap, but it will take a long time to clear it, so that it wants a man with a good capital to do anything. They have no coals here, but burn all wood. With regard to the natives of this place, they are all becoming mission- aries belonging to the Church of Lngland; they are all tattooed, are horrid looking, and have the appearance of wild men. They look at us on this island, where there are 15 boats's crew of us, as if they would eat us, carrying such a honid look with them, and having only mats to their bodies to cover their nakedness, made of flax, which they make themselves but they are very quiet with us since they are become missionaries and we buy potatoes, fish, and leeks of them for tobacco and Hour." FIRE AT RHEOLA.—AVe briefly adverted to this distress- ing event on the 25th ult. On discovering the fire a messenger was sent to Aberpergwm, to inform Mr. Williams of the circumstance, who instantly ordered all his colliers and labourers to proceed without delay to the spot for the purpose of rendering assistance in extinguishing the flames, which at the time were raging with great violence. The Aberpergwm colliers, aided by the men and even women of the neighbourhood exerted themselves'very much and were successful in preventing the further progress of the fire. It is believed that the fire originated in the butler's pantry, and from thence was communicated to the kitchen, which was entirely destroyed, the roof, by falling in, aiding in checking the violence of the destructive element. At the moment of discovery a messenger was dispatched to Neath for the fire-engine, which was, with incredible speed, conveyed to the spot, but not before the fire had been extin- guished. It is highly creditable to the inhabitants of the neighbourhood to find, that although all the valuables of the house were carried out and left without protection on the lawn, nothing has been found missing. Several gentlemen of the neighbourhood with praise-worthy solicitude for their neighbour's property, hurried to the spot, and by their presence and example contributed much towards extinguish- ing the flames. Mr. Vaughan and family, we understand were from home at the time of the disastrous occurrence. ATTEMPT TO ASSASSINATE A CLERGYMAN IN ST. PAUL'S CATHEDRAL. During the performance of the afternoon service in St. Paul's Cathedral on Saturday an attempt was made upon the life of the Rev. Mr. Haydon, one of the minor canons, who was at the time officiating for the Dean (the Bishop of Llan- Haff). It appears that the Rev. Mr. Warden, one of the congregation, observed the offender (who was in the area of the choir, and about two yards from the Rev. Mr. Haydon) draw from his breast what he at first mistook for a book, but, as the light shone upon the barrel, he perceived that it was a pistol, and immediately screamed out twice or thrice to alarm the congregation, as he was some distance from the prisoner, and could not get at him. As soon as the rev. gentleman raised the alarm, the attention of W. H. Plymsell, of Eyre-court, Eyre-street-hill, Hatton-garden, was directed towards the would-be assassin, and he suc- ceeded, with a person named Houghton, in getting the pistol, after some resistance, from his hand. Plymsell and a Mr. Bowler both positively state that the deadly weapon was aimed at the Rev. Mr. Haydon, as they were behind the prisoner, and could judge of the fact. The moment which the accused chose for executing his murderous purpose was immediately upon the conclusion of the prayer for the Queen but, happily, although he snapped the trigger, the weapon missed fire. He was immediately seized, and, upon examining the pistol, it was found to con- tain powder, and five shots, which were preserved by the verger of the cathedral. The prisoner was then conducted to the dean's audit-room or vestry. When he was first seized he trembled very much, and remarked, You need not hold me so tight, for I have nothing more about me; I am not going to run away." After the Bishop of Llandaff had satisfied himself of the truth of the charge, police-con- stable 352 was sent for, and the prisoner was conveyed to the station-house in Blackhorse-lane, Fleet-street. He ap- pears to be about 21 years of age, and is below the middle height. His dress consisted of a black surtout, black waist- coat and stock, drab trousers, and a silk hat with a crape band upon it. Nothing but an old pocket handkerchief and a small tin tobacco-box were found upon the prisoner. When questioned as to his name and address, he merely replied—"I shall make no further statements in this place." The pistol, which appears to be in good repair, bears the name of Nicholson. Mr. AVoolfe, a gentleman residing in St. John's-wood, also attended the station for the purpose of becoming a witness, and confirmed- the greater portion of this account. The prisoner was frequently pressed both by the Rev. Mr AVarden and the inspector on duty to disclose his address, that some communication might be made to his friends, but he obstinately refused to do so, observing, I shall not speak in this place," and, I told you I should decline making any further statement." There was nothing indicative of insanity about his demeanour, and his general appearance bespeaks respectability. The several witnesses were directed to be in attendance at Guildhall to-day at 12 o'clock. The prisoner was locked up in a cell with a con- stable to watch him. FURTHER PARTICULARS. The reserve manifested by the prisoner on his apprehen- sion and during the short examination when the charge was made at the station-house, was maintained throughout the whole of Saturday night, and nothing occurred to lead to his identity until 10 o'clock on the following morning, at which hour lie expressed a desire to see the officer on duty, and indicated his willingness to give the name of his father, in order that he might be sent for. He then stated that his friends resided at 41, Moscow-road, Bayswater, and that his father's name was Augustus Sintzenick. A messenger was at once despatched to this place, and the information was discovered to be strictly correct. Mr. Sintzenick, who is an artist by profession, has resided at Bayswater for many years past, and is universally respected in- the neighbourhood. Immediately on receipt of the melancholy intelligence he came to London, and had an interview with his unhappy son, but nothing transpired tending to dispel the mystery in which the extraordinary affair is at present enveloped. The following particulars, however, may be relied on :— It appears that the culprit's name is Edward Sintzenick, and that he is the third son of the gentleman above referred to. His age has been palpably mistaken, his father stating that he has not yet completed his 16th year. He left school only last Christmas, and has resided since that time with his parents, who have been seeking to obtain a suitable situation for him. In this they had not been successful, and the pri- soner left home on Saturday to call on a gentleman who is a friend of his father's, in London. His absence from home in the evening caused some uneasiness to the family, but, as the night was wet, it was conjectured that the gentleman on whom he had to call might have offered him a bed, and nothing further have occurred. The motive for the rash attempt is a perfect mystery to the family, and they are plunged into the deepest distress by the event. The rev. gentleman, who was the object of the attack, was unknown even by name to any member of the family, and it is, there- fore, clear that personal enmity had nothing to do with it, the matter appearing to arise through some extraordinary and accountable delusion. The fact of his sou being possessed of a pistol was wholly unknown to Mr. Sintzenick, nor was either of his brothers aware of it. While at school the prisoner was always considered an attentive, well- behaved youth, nor does he appear to have previously given any indications of mental delusion. He took nourishment Sunday several times, but seemed to be very low spirited and reserved, spending the greater part of the day in reading the Bible. THE AVIIEAT CROPS.-We have conversed with a gentle- man who has had much experience in agriculture, and who frequently visits the corn counties, on the general condition of the growing crop of grain, and avail ourselves of the gratifying information with which he has favoured us, the result of a careful inspection of the fields in the principal corn districts throughout the country. He assures us that the present appearance of the wheat crop is the most pro- mising that he remembers to have ever witnessed at this sea- son of the year, both as regards strength of plant and for- wardness of growth, and that the harvest is likely to be the earliest (probably by three or four weeks) and the most productive with which we have been favoured in England since the year 1827. With this prospect, low as the prices of wheat now are, the last average of the 18th ult. being 47s. 6d. per quarter, or 5s. lljd. per bushel, the probability, Y, he is strongly of opinion, is that prices must continue to decline, until 5s. a bushel, at the most, as an average price, will have to be submitted to before the end of the year. He attributes the present fine appearance of the growing wheats chiefly to the superior preparation of the soil during the propitious summer of last year, as in 1826. We may add, that the land was never perhaps in better condition as a seed- bed for the spring-corn since the spring of the corresponding season-1827, so that the opening prospect for the yield of oats and barley is equally promising. -Liverpool Standard. CAUTION TO MINERS.—A few days since, as Thomas Nicholls, a miner, was at work at Levant Mine, he acci- dentally holed into a part of the mine that was not at work at the time, and fell apparently dead from breathing the foul air. His comrade went immediately and fetched seven more men to his assistance, who, as soon as they entered the place, all fell in the same manner, and lay for some minutes. Purer air, however, soon followed, when the poor fellows revived, and are now able to return to thei* labour.
HOUSE OF. LORDS. THURSDAY.
HOUSE OF. LORDS. THURSDAY. Lord AArickIow moved for certain returns respecting the law to regulate spirit distillation in Ireland, with the view of procuring an alteration of the act passed last session, by which, in lieu of the income-tax, an additional duty was im- posed upon spirits of Irish manufacture. He gave Ministers credit for this substitution, but their measure had, in its ope- ration, proved most unfortunate. It was fraught with in- justice, it bad failed as a source of revenue, and it had pro- duced vice and immorality to a most alarming extent. The amount of duty had been increased, upon the plea of assimi- lating it with that paid by the English and Scotch distillers; but as the drawback duty which by the bill was taken from the Irish spirit was continued to that produced in Scotland, the latter possessed an advantage which had enabled it to supplant its rival in every foreign market. The Duke of Wellington regretted that Lord Wicklow should have brought the subject in its present shape before the House, instead of communicating privately with the Government his reason for supposing that the measure had operated injuriously. Lord Monteagle denied that the question as to drawbacks had been settled last session to the satisfaction of the dis- tillers; and proceeded to show that an increase of duty upon Irish spirits had been uniformly followed bv a I dling off of- revenue and general demoralization. He would prefer a tax upon property to a duty which augmented crime. After a few words from Lord AVicklow, his motion for papers was agreed to, and their Lordships adjourned. FRIDAY. Lord Campbell, in conformity with the notice he had given, moved a series of resolutions on the subject of the dissensions which now agitate the Church of Scotland, rather, as he ex- plained, for the purpose of eliciting a solemn opinion from their Lordships than with a view to legislation, which would n» he feared, be accepted ns satisfactory in the present tem >er of the dominant party in the House of Assembly, i'he Earl ol Aberdeen opposed the motion, not only on the ge leral ground that the practice of voting abstract resolutions was inconvenient, but because those at present proposed were eit'fr mere compliments to the Church of S otlaod, or so ra;ue!y expressed, that, without producing any possible auvantage, they might seriously embarrass the House when- ever it was called upon to legislate on the subject. He had been always one of those who were inclined to admit, in a great measure, the principle which was called Non-intrusion, and had framed his measure, some sessions since, on the maxim, that it was the office of the patron to present, of the people to object, and the Church to judge. Lord Brougham unsparingly condemned the members of the Scotch Church, who had presumed to hold out against the decisions, not only of the Supreme Court in Scotland, but of their Lordships' House, and denounced any endeavour to extricate them from the difficulties of their position until they had made the fullest submission. The Lord Chancellor defended the iie< i»ion in the Anchterarder cage and Lord Campbell declining to press his motion to a division, the amendment was declared to be carried, and their Lordships adjourned.
HOUSE OF COMMONS.
HOUSE OF COMMONS. THURSDAY. Mr. Hume, in a very few words, moved the issuing of a new wlit for Nottingham. Sir R. Inglis supported the motion, on the principle that it was matter of common right to issue the writ, unless the House considered that there was ground for a bill of disfran- chisement. Lord Lincoln, acceding to Sir R. Inglis's principle, yet justified the past delay, on the ground that the evidence now before the house had not been printed when the suspension was ordered and that malpractices at former elections for Nottingham had been notorious and enormous. He rjoiced that the present evidence indicated a great improvement in these particulars; and he gladly took this opportunity of stating, on his own personal knowledge, that Mr. Walter was not only free from all participation in the illegal acts com- mitted at the late election, but actually unaware of them for some time after his return. After a few words from Sir Robert Peel, Mr. Cochrane said, that Mr. Walter was very harshly used in being unseated by committee for acts of which he was wholly unconscious, and proposed that he should be allowed to stand again at the approaching election. Mr. Hogg, the chairman of that committee, said, that one or more unconnected cases of bribery would not have in- fluenced his judgement; but his impression was that the acts of bribery at the Nottingham election had been the result of an organised system, and executed by agents who were members of Mr, Waiter's central committee. He might be right or wrong in that impression but he had acted to the best of his judgment under the obligation of his oath. Lord John Russell rejoiced that under the new constitution of election committees, the House had the benefit of dis- criminating judgments like that of Mr. Hogg. He would not oppose the issuing of the writ. Mr. Bernal said, that if a majority of the committee believed in the organized system alleged by Mr. Hogg, they ought to have made a special report and he commended the course which had been taken moving the suspension of the writ. After a disscussion of some length, the writ was ordered to be issued. FRIDAY. The House having gone into committee of supply, the miscellaneous estimates were resumed. The first vote proposed was for the Poor Law Commission in England and Ireland. Colonel Sibthorp opposed it. It would be too late, he said, to complain when the money was once gone; he would, therefore, oppose the grant of it beforehand. It was not merely to the amount that he objected, but to the whole principle one commissioner would be as bad as many. He would move to disallow the whole estimate for the English part of the establishment. b Sir J. Graham pointed out a considerable reduction on this estimate as compared with that of last year. The question was whether Parliament would or would not now provide for the maintenance of a commission which they had sanctioned by their own vote. Mr. Hume, remembering the state of things which existed before the appointment ot this commission, was sure that no rational man would wish to return to that position. He made some inquiries about the assistant-commissioners, in answer to which Sir James Graham said, that as there were 580 unions, the number of these assistants could not well be re- duced below the present establishment. After some conversation about the expenditure in Ireland, Mr. Hardy said, he had voted against the commission, but could not concur in resisting this vote. Mr. AVakley told him the only material vote was the vote of the money this was the vote to be refused by those who really wished to stop the system. He could not understand the charge in the commissioners' account for postages, which amounted to more than four times as much as the whole postage of the Home Secretary's office. Sir J. Graham answered that this was no wonder, when the commissions had to conduct a correspondence with 580 uuions. The amendment was rejected, on a division, by 98 to 14. On the estimate for charges connected with Scotland, Mr. AVilliams objected to two items, being "the Queen's plate to be run for at Edinburgh," and Ditto to the Caledonian Hunt." He did not see why his country men should be taxed for the amusements of the rich in Scotland. Sir G. Clerk answered that these donations were formerly paid out of the hereditary revenue, over which Parliament had no control; and now that this revenue had been trans- ferred to the public, the public were fairly charged with the accustomed donations. Mr. Hume said, that if the Queen chose to subscribe to a race she ought to pay it out of the privy purse. He censured also the payment of a salary to the Secretary of the Queen's printers for Scotland- Mr. Goulburn explained, that the Queen's plates were intended for the encouragement of the breed of horses, and if they contributed to the amusement of the rich, this was an amusement equally partaken by the poor. The estimate for the household of the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland provoked from Mr. Hume an assertion, that this whole establishment was useless, that there ought to be no Lord-Lieutenant, and that the Government of Ireland ought to be placed under the Home Department. The vote, however, passed without further observation. The remainder of the sitting was taken up with a discus- sion, on the other miscellaneous votes, which excited some interest. THE MONOMANIACS.—As it may interest some of the public who are curious in matters of monomaniacs, we can inform them that the latest intelligence from Bedlam announces that Stevenson, the Scotchman, made serious re- sistance to keepers of the asylum who proceeded on Friday to disencumber him of his immense moustachies and long beard. He denounced as a gross personal indignity the attempt to apply a razor to his face, which had never before been polluted, he said, by any such sharp weapon of destruction. The keepers, however, suceeeded in stripping him, after no small force, of those hirsute embellishments which had im- parted such interest to him at the Mansion-house, and would have made him a great lion indeed at Bedlam. So determined was Stevenson to preserve at least some portion of his long- cherished beard, that he conningly contrived to conceal a part of it inside his neckcloth; but the eyes of the keepers were as sharp as their razor, and every hair was shorn away. Stevenson is now confined on the ground floor of the criminal ward of the asylum, as is also M'Naughten. We here that M'Naughten keeps up no intercourse with his fellow- prisoners, but evinces a disposition to get into conversation with his keepers. It is not generally know, perhaps, that those committed as criminal lunatics are, on thier first admis- sion, confined on the ground floor; and are continued there until a carefel observation of their habits and conduct--such as their clenliness and It a riiilessiness--sll all satisfy the au- thorities that, it is safe to remove them to the apartments on the first floor, and then, if they continue to gain further on the confidence of the authorities, they are removed to the se- cond floor. Oxford has already attained this envied eminence, and we think we may say, without fear of contradiction, that thpre is not a man in or about the prisoa capable of judging who does not regard him as perfectly souud in his mind on every subject. The same impression prevails as to M Naughten, though not with the same certainty, as the means of observation have not been of the same duration.— Obterver%
Religion is equally the basis of private virtue and public faith of the happiness of the individual, and the prosperity of the nation. Self-denial is an excellent guard for virtue, and it is safer and wiser to abate somewhat of our lawful enjoyments, than to gratify our desires to the utmost extent of what is per- mitted, lest the bent of nature towards pleasure hurry us further. SINCERELY REGRETTED" DEATHS.—It appears, by an extract from the Edinburgh Review," upon the beauties of the advertising system, that the Times," of London, charges 7s. for publishing an advertisement of a death, in the simplest form; and that the addition of the words, sin- cerely regretted," raises the wages to 10s. At this rate, we wonder what would be the cost of publishing some of the romances which the press, in this pait of the world, is fre- quently expected to insert, GRATIS. We are ourselves called upon, often, to inform the public, not only that the character of some obscure person deceased was peculiarly amiable, in all the relations of life, but also to state how he or she bore up in sickness, as if the public were likely to take an interest in the matter. Nay, the concoctor of the record often wishes to have a newspaper certificate to the fact, that the spirit of the departed had gone to heaven It is full time that a stop should be put to such indelicate and ridiculous puffery, and such downright profaneness. DEFINITION OF A NEWSPAPER. We are to-day com- pelled," says an American editor, in consequence of the misapprehension of many of our readers, to define what a newspaper is. It is (and let those in arrear for the last quarter mark well) a luxury which those who cannot afford to stump down for in advance, or pay promptly for on the day their quarter is up, should never for a moment think of indulging in." THE EARTHQUAKE. -The earthquake in the north appears to have given general dissatisfaction, and it is pretty evident that unless these affairs adopt a more regular and rational mode of procedure, they will altogether lose favour with a British public. The earthquake of last week, instead of coming at the business-like hour of nine o'clock in the morning, as at Calabria, must needs creep in at the dead of night; and by rattling the windows and glasses, shaking the beds, and other paltry and despicable pranks, cause unne- cessary consternation and alarm. Consequently, instead of being taken for a respectable, dignified earthquake, it gets the credit, in most instances, of being a pettifogging house- breaker. I We are gravely told by the Manchester Guardian," that a lady labouring under the impression that it was a burglar, sprang out of bed, and throwing up the window, called lustily for a policeman one happened to be passing at the time to whom she communicated her fears. He assured her, however, that her silver spoons were safe, and quietly begged her not to be alarmed, as it was only an earthquake. We have always prided ourselves upon taking matters coolly; but here we candidly confess our inferiority to policeman Z 11. An earthquake! pooh! beneath his note. We shall use our influence in getting Z 11 promoted to the rank of deputy sergeant.-Punch. A wife who loses her patience must not expect to retain her husband's heart. A poor lunatic being asked how he came to be taken to the madhouse, replied—" A dispute. The world said I was mad. I said the world was mad and they out-voted me." Johnson gives the definition of ledger thus A book that lies in the counting-house." The recent defalcations and false entries shows that Johnson was correct, for ledgers do LIE now a days.
