RUTHIN LENT ASSIZES. Gcoryc Edwards, of Wrexham, shoemaker was indicted, & put on his trial, for cutting and stab- bing, with intent to murder, ke. Thomas Yates, nailor of Wrexham, and after a trial which lasted until past nine o'clock at night, he was acquitted much to the indignation and astonishment of a crowded court. It appeared in evidence, that the parties were neighbours, and that the father of Yates, an old man, and the two sisters of the prisoner, had disputed, and after .much abusiyet lan<rua"'e on both tides, they closed in a kind of souffle, outside the door of the prisoner's dwel- ling, throwing cinders and water on each other, 9n whHSb Xafes ran from the forge, at which he was working, to pull away his father, when just in the act of doing so, by grasping him round the body, Edwards, the prisoner, who had never ap- peared to interfere before this, suddenly darted forward, aimed- from the door-way of his owii house, a blow, with a sharp poilited shoe- maker's, knife, at the rwck of Yates, which, en- tering at the ear, inflicted a dreadful wound, four" inches in length, and of sufficient depth to have proved mortal, if, by surgical skill, he had not been immediately assisted, and eventuallylre- coverged. The evidence for the prosecution was cleaiivconsistent, and satisfactory, as to the cause of the wound, and Mr- Griffith, of Wrexham, the surgeon who attended the prosecutor, during a tedious confinement of many weeks, proved, in a creditable display of his professional skill, the nature of the, wound, the excessive danger of his patient for at least eight or nine days after its infliction: it also appeared by the the production of a black silk handkerchief, and round the pro- secutor's neck at the time, that this had pro- bablyiiaved. his life, as notwithstanding a thick stuffing it was cut through by the force of the blow. The Chief Justice charged the jury with all his usual discrimination and ability, omitting 110 fact on either side, and most patiently ex- plaining his own view of each particular circum- stance as it appeared to bear in favour or against the prisoner, but evidently, as he was forced to (to, deducing a general influence of his guilt, on ei- therone or the other of the two counts on which the indictment was founded. The jury, notwithstand- ing. after a short deliberation, returned to the box and on being asked the usual question, the foreman replied "We find him guilty of stab- bing, but not"—here he stammered, on which the Judge immediately apprehending that they did not wish to find upon iliefii-st count, with in- tent to commit murder," but on the second, viz. with intent to commit some, grievous bodily harm explained that they could find on the latter count, if not upon the first, which he pre, sumud they meant to do, finding he had inflicted the wound, on which they turned round to con- sult Rgain, and after a short discussion, the fore- man advanced, and now said, not guilty upon both, or to that effect, fo r it was perfectly clear to evoi-Y body in court that he at least was almost inca- babie of comprehending what he really meant to say. The Chief Justice, we presume, incapable also of restraining his own emotion of surprise at so extraordinary a proof of either prejudice or ignorance. involuntarily exclaimed, "then, I suppose, lie stubbed him for his own amusement a sentiment which was indignantly, though si- lently, echoed throughout the whole court, who felt an impulse of shame that an institution." which js the great-palladium of our librrtir*, should be thus degraded and perverted, but until' the English language is mote perfectly under*u>od in VVales, it is quite certain that in- stances uf this kind will too frequently recur, nnd that the palpable incompetence which appeared in this case (either in that particular or some other), to obstruct the course of justice, and es- pecially of erfminal justice, will suspend that confidence in the trial by jury which it ought to be the anxious desire of every lover of his coun- try to dit!us I and establish, in order that this sacred depository of life and property should be as pure and unexceptionable as the imperfections of our nature will allow. In all the other attri- butes of a Briiish "Court of Justice, the picture was perfect; an upright patient, and enlightened judge, able and zealous counsel, intelligent agents, &c.; but the people themselves betrayid their own rights, and violated the charter oj tl en liberties! 1 William Davies, aged 23, stood charged, and was convicted of stealing a mare, the property of Sarah Jonis, of Wrexham; he rode the mare to Chester, wiere he was taken, and conveyed L back to Wrexham and thence to jail, he was sentenced to transportation for life. Thelwotl Salusbury, Edward Parry a"d^,V™ Owen, were indicted, and convicted of poaching in the preserves of Miss Harriet Myddleton, near j Denbigh the frst, as being the most (iespci ate, 1 was sentenced to two years" imprisonment, with haRo6eri°FoMJr/s0,^sho^maker^Iwas convicted of "in th"e A.

WILLIAMS.-At Hereford Assizes an action for Defamation was brought by Oweii Lloyd, of Cardigan, plantift, and-Monis Williams Esq. of Cymgloyne, in the county of Pembroke, defendant; the action was brought for words used by the defendant, imputing felony to the plaintiff. Shortly after the pleadings had been opened, and during the examination of the first wi e offer was made by the defendant s counsel, ftlr. Campbell, to compromise, by agreeing^to a, e diet fbr the plaintiff with 40s. damages, (carry- ing costs), and apologising forthe: words, and also stating that there was no foundation for the charge they conveyed. To this the plaiiitift.jvhose^ob- iect in bringing the action was vindication of character and not excessi ve^amages, immediately agreed, and an apology was aceordingly inad-e by Mr. Campbell for his client, in the most hand- some manner. S. DAVID STEAM PACKET.-WE are sorry to state, that a fire brokeout on board of this packet at three o'clock-on Thursday afternoon, about an hour and a half after her arrival-at Bagillt, and whilst laying on the Bank there. Two men- were on board at the time.-It began close to the boiler, and the wind passing through the en- gineer's holes drote the flames towards the after- cabin, the interior of which was speedily burnt and there appeared every probabthtyot the ves- sel being inevitably destroyed.—However, by the active exertions of the Captain and crew, and other individuals, the masts were cut down, the ringing and sails saved, and the fire got un- der with the damage confined to the cabin an a portion of the deck.—Unfortunately, thot,^h^ gone out, and the Ban* was iirae —It is stroncrly suspected, that an incenaiai, had set fire to her, as *thA- engine-fire had •been, put out soon after her arrival at Bagilit. -Not- withstanding the accident, the vessel sailed at her appointed time from Bagillt, and towed a Ilte( vessel up the river.—She landed her passengers about half-past eleven o'clock on Friday morn- ing, fit Mr. Mulvey's ship-yard, near Chester. The damage is so considerable, that it is suppos- ed she cannot be repaired in less time than three weeks or a month. BRIDGE OVER THE DEE.—The Chester bridge bill was read a second time on Tuesday in the Commons, without opposition. Two petitions hayje bren presented against the bill, but the ga- neral impression seems to be, that the Bill will be ultimately carried. Mr.Rothschild being asked what lie thought of the innumerable new speculations now afloat, re- plied. "they are like a cold bath; to derive any benefit feom which it is necessary to be very quick in, and very soon out In consequence of what is called a row in the University of Oxford, we understand an ami- able young Nobleman, the second son of the Great Captain ofUre Age has been ruxticaLtd. This oc- currence has occasioned considerable chagrin in a high quarter. The Noble Duke is said to have taken his eldest son, the Marquis ol D-, from the University.—Morniny Chronicle.

At money was require] to fit him out, respectable persons have attended at this office to subscribe for that purpose; and there is very prospect of a sufflclent sum being collected; ItkIL ROADS.-Ttiere. is some opposition arti- ficially existing against the Rail Roads. There is nothing so manifestly good, as to silence folly, disarm self-interost, and reduce absurdity to quietness and, if the utility of those undertak- ings were even more clear than it is-Slill, we might expect to. have those qualities hostilely busy against them. If a man were uow to declaim against Turnpike Roads, nobody would dispute with him—he would be looked upon as a mad- man yet, Turnpike Roads, in their day. had more violent declamations put forth against them. than even Rail Roads.- Adam Smith has left us the following curious fact :-It is more than fifty years (says this able writer) that some of the counties in the neighbourhood of London peti- tioned the Parliament against the extension of Turnpike Roads into the remoter counties.— Those remoter counties, they pretended, from th.e cheapness of labour, would be able to sell their grass and corn cheaper in the London mar- ket than themselves, and would thereby reduce their rents, and ruin their cultivation. Their rents, however,, have risen, and the ir ciiltivi-tioii has been improved since that time."—The same will be said hereafter of the Rail Uoads-and the objections urged against them will appear just as ridiculous, as those which were advanced agatnst the Turnpike Roads. AYLESBURY, MARCH 26.—An act, which we know not whether to designate as proceeding from drunkenness, from madncaN, or from foily, took place at the Red Lion public-house, in Ay les- 'I' bury, on Monday. Two men, the one a hawking draper, and the other a travelling tinman, agreed to toss up a halfpenny to decide which of the two should hang the other. The result was that the tinman was to he the hangman, and the draper to be hanged. To act like a man of honour, and to prevent interruption, the draper repaired to the stable, accompanied by the tinman, and the rope was adjusted round his neck; he then got on a pail while the tinman fastened the rope to abeam. The pail was then taken away, and the draper left suspended. Fortunately for him the rope by stretching, allowed him to touch the ground with his toes, and in this situation he remained nearly five minutes. The landlord happened at this juncture to go into the stable and saw him hanging, and the tinman standing by very coolly, apparently without any intention to release him from a situation, wherein a few minutes his exis- tence must have terminated. The landlord cut him down immediately, and no sooner was he able to speak, than he said, he thought that hanging would only have given him a pain in his neck, if he had known he should have suffered so much in other parts of his body, he would not have stood to his bargain. sh The following is an exact list of the English Journals which are prohibited to beadmittedinto- France Morning Chronicle.

'7 SUSSEX ASIZEs.Thursday two men were found guilty of making a light on the coast, neat j Hastings, to caution a smuggling vessel against coming to shore. They were sentenced to six ,1 months imprisonment and hard labour.—A maWI named Jenner was fined IOOl. for supplying the 'II workhouse of the parish of Hurstperpoint, for his own prafit with wheat, whilst serving the of- fice of overseer of the poor. At Dumfries, on Thursday last, died, Mrs. a: Ann Douglas, aged 80. About thirty years ago she was attacked with dropsy, and tapped for the' complaint no fewer than fifty-five times—a cir- cumstance which is, perhaps, unprecedented in j the history of medicine. In the year 1614, she received a severe fall, and from the date of the accident till within a few days of her death, the complaint alluded to had disappeared so en- tirely, that it is even doubtful whether it could be considered as the proximate cause of her disso- lution. The curious library of the late Dr. Parr will shortly be brought to the hammer.—It will £ e found very extensive, and peculiarly rich in Latin Classics, especially, in the early numbers of the British Critic, our readers will remember an elabo- rate of the. splen- did edition of Homer, by the late Dr. Coorhbe of Bloouisbury square; father of one of the pre- sent curators of the British Museum, which was written by Dr. Parr. The article in question had the effect, for a time, of depressing the value of Dr. Coombe's literary labours, and nearly destroying the sale of his book. It has, how- ever since recovered, and is now considered scarce and valuable. The bitter character of this criticism backed by its accuracy, occasioned a long correspondence between the editor of Homer, and the Occasional Writer in the British Critic," whose "biting satire," after many hard hits" on both sides, eventually triumphed. Among other new projects, a company is form- ing in Liverpool, for the purpose of cutting a ship canal across Ireland, to avoid the dangerous passage from the western coast of Ireland round Cape Clear. It has been estimated that the annual loss of property to and from America, on the coast of Ireland, amounts to ^380,000. and it is presumed that the greatest part of this loss would be avoided by means of a canal from the Bay of Dublin to Galway Bay.—The in- tention is to deepen and enlarge the grand canal which at present runs to the bounds of the county of Galway, and to cut across that county for about twenty miles to the Bay. The estimat- ed expense is £ 800,000. RISI IGIOUS inquiry took place at Uuion Hall, Thursday, touching the death of Amelia Clay. The deceased, it ap- peared had enjoyed a pniliant flow of spirits, butabClut four years ago she joined a sect of dissenters, and since that time became in a state of melancholy, produced by religious enthusiasm. She was coiii'iiniatly impressing on her frieudsihe necessity of abandoning all worldly thoughts and ways, and had been frequently heard to say that all persons who did not attend, to her ad- vice would surely go to hell." The resu t of the inquiry was that the deceased while in a slate or melancholy had taken two spoonfuls of arsenic. All inquest was also held Thursday, at the Guy Earl of Warwick-lane, on another female sixty years of ade, named M.trtha Halls, who had also fallen into 'a state of religious despondency, in consequence of becoming acquainted with an old ladv oftheftx-thodist persuation Slit- had fr"']tientlV"«;xj[)ressed her fears that she should neVer eii'ter Heaven, and tint it was of no use to pray. While in a state of insanity &.¡e cut her throat with a carving knife. Dnring'the course of the last week, as the Earl of W estmoreland was rid,ing towards Chelsea, he dropped the ring of his watch, to which were at- tached'a seal of exquisite workmanship, and par- ticularly valuable from the beauty of its engrav- '"ing, together with three keys, one of which be- longs to the Cabinet (as we have heard), contain- ing the Privy Seal; the custody of which is vest- ed in his Lordship, by virtue of his Ministerial office of Lord Keeper. The inconvenience aris- ing i'u the transaction of public business to his Lordship from its loss, was great in the extreme and he at once applied to Bow-street, in order to jits discovery. He, however, in the interim, luckily discovered that LordHarrowby would re- medy the temporary inconvenience. Hand-bills, offering a liberal reward for its recovery, were widely distributed, and a most minute ex- amination of the different roads his Lordship had traversed in the course of his ride, took place under the superintendaceof the officers of the differ- ent Police Establishments of the metropolis, but all to no purpose. Every hope of its recovery had completely vanished, when a young man. in a shabby genteel garb, presented himself to the Magistrates of Queen-square Office, and stated that he had found on the Chelsea road, a ring. seal, and three key?, and that being ignorant of the person who had lost them, he wished to know from their Worships if they could inform him who it was and if not, what he was to do as to their dispö¡¡al? The Magistrates, on examination, dis- covered from the description in the hand-bills, and the arms oh the seal, that they were the ob- ject.^ of the late anxious search, and transmitted them to, his Lordship, who, it is unnecessary to add, re warded the honest principles of their finder in the most liberal manner. Dr. Sydenham had a patient whom he had long prescribed for; but his prescriptions were ineffi- cient, and, at last, Sydenham acknowledged that his skill was exhausted—that he could not pre- tend to advise him any farther. But," said he, there is a Dr. Robinson, who lives at Inver- ness, who is much more skilled in complaints of this kind than I am you had better consult him. 1 will provide you with a letter of introduction, and I hope; you will return much better." The patient was a man of fortune, and soon took the road but travelling was a very different under- taking then from what it is now, and a journey from Londoil to Inverness was not a trifling one. He arrived, however, at the place of destination; but no Dr. Robinson was to be found, nor had any one of that name ever been in the town. This, of course, enraged the gentleman very much and. he took the road back to London, raging, and vowing vengeance on the Doctor. On his arrival, he vented all his rage on the latter, and abused him for sending him a journey of so mauy miles for nothing. When his fury was a little abated, "Well, now," said Sydenham, "after all, is your health any better?" Better!" said he; 4iyes, Sir, it is better. I am, Sir, as well as I ever was in my life; but no thanks to you for that." 1. Well said Sydenham, you have still rea- son to thank Dr. Robinson. 1 wanted to send you a journey, with an object in view. I knew it would do you good in going, yon had Dr. Ro- binson in contemplation, and, in returning, you were equally busy in thinking of scolding me," ); The Rev.
