THE CONDEMNED PRIEST. The correspondent of the Morning Post, writing from Stockholm, says: It was not difficult to be foreseen that the trial of Pastor Lindback for the murders he had committed Siibodal would not occupy much time ? £ ter the qfl4" fied confession which had been made by him with re- gard to tbem, more especially when it ia remembofe<^ that in this country the formalities of a trial are to » great extent superseded by the proceedings hlC. take place previously to the accused making his ap pearanco before the high criminal tribunal, little occurs beyond the formal examination to he is then subjected. In this instance enough been admitted by Lindback to justify the court i» once finding him guilty; for, although he attexnpt to palliate his offences by, assigning reasons f°s having committed them, suoh ad that his were either incurables who were alike burdens,^0 themselves and to his parish, or that, in giving- them medicine for the purpose of onrJJI them, tbe effects had been different from tbof which he had expected, the muidcra were so clea*^ established in every case that the j ucfgc-s could hvell hesitation as to the sentence which they should P: nounce. He was, therefore, at onoe condemned to v beheaded, and an early day will likely be fixed for execution. It should, however, be mentioned that J?" tore beiDg taken into court he was deprived of ecclesiastical vestments, and after sentence was iiotmced the prisoner in the first instance the judge, and then the goveruoi.' cf the concluding with a most affecting speech to the cro*" which had assembled, in which he admitted that hia youth ho had yielded to temptation3 which had him to the sad and miserable condition in which J0 was then placed, and strongly urged them to warning by his fate, and asserted that though now prived of all hope of much longer existence on earth, he atili looked with confidence to Heaven for pardop* ing mercy. After this address he bowed most foundly, and left the bar in charge of the gmLrda, Vf the same dignity and calmness with whichhe hadb8?? accustomed to descend from the pulpit in the pa*1^ on which he has brought so much misery. =-———————————. j
