BURGLARS AND THE LASH. At the Norwich Assizes, the Grand Jury made a presentment, expressing their opinion that burglars apprehended with revolvers in their possession should be punished with the lash, in addition eo undergoing terms of imprisonment or penal servi- tude. A copy of the presentment having been for- warded to the Solicitor-General (Sir E. Clarke, M.P.), the hon. gentleman has replied that he knows that. the punishment of Hogging is dreaded more than any other by the ruffians who commit crimes of violence, and he should have no objection to an amendment of the law which would extend it to burglars who are found in possession of any weapons, such as revolvers, life preservers, or loaded sticks. But his own opinion Is that ib would be better to make stricter regulations with regard to the possession of firearms by any persons whatever, and to make the carrying of revolvers iu public places an offence in itself punishable with severity.
