It appeared that horns, whistles, cat-calls, and other annoyances, were set in motion to effect the purpose of the conspirators, and the evidence completely implicated all the rioters named in the record.

Mr. Raine addressed the Jury with great ability on the part of the defendants. The scope of his argument was chiefly directed to repel the charge of conspiracy.

Mr. Baron Graham was of opinion, that the evidence went sufficiently to the proof of a conspiracy; but, as the consequences of a conviction for that offerce were so highly penal, he recommended that the count in the information for the conspiracy should be given up.

This proposition, after some discussion, was, in the most liberal manner, acceded to by the Attorney-General, who observed, that the prosecution was not carried on by Messrs. Lewis and Knight, but by the Magistrates of Liverpool.

The defendants were then acquitted of the conspiracy (by consent), and found guilty of the riot.

The King v. Carter.

This was a prosecution of a similar nature, and the defendant was also found guilty.

The trials occupied the time of the court fipm ten in the morning till six in the evening.

Died.] After a short illness, John Herring, Esq. one of the Magistrates of Norwich. In the year 1786 he. served the office of Sheriff; was elected Alderman March 20, 1798, and Mayor in the following year.During his Mayoralty, on the return of the troops from the unfortunate expedition to the Helder, he particularly distinguished himself, by his be nevolent exertions in procuring them all the accommodations and comforts they so much required, and for which he received the thanks of the Commander in Chief and the Secretary of State, and had likewise the other of being created a Knight, which honour, however, he declined. In domestic life, those who knew him best will be loudest in his praise; and the unfeigned grief of those whom he has left behind, will express what they have lost in the husband, the father, and the friend.


Died.] At Needham-market, the Rev. Henry Spelman, of Narborough, Norfolk, where his benevolence will long be remembered. He was the last lineal descendant of that ancient family, and formerly of Caius College, Cambridge. He has left among other kind remembrances to his poor parishioners, complete mourning for the whole of them, men, women, and children; who attended his funeral with unfeigned sorrow, for the loss of a good friend, and a most benevolent

Whilst he was ascending this staff, it broke with his weight; but, strange to tell, the fall and destruction of the young man,

This accordingly took place on the 11th of June last, and a fire was kindled for the purpose on an adjacent moss, whither the poor victim (a fine heifer calf) was taken in a cart, and placed on the burning pile: two men and a servant woman were the barbarous executioners, who held the animal on the fire, one by its legs, another by its tail, and a third by its head; it however escaped from them several times, and was again and again committed to the flames.


At Woodhouse, near Leeds, a singular but instructive accident happened, during the late thunder-storm.. About eight o'clock on Sunday evening, a working man, of the name of Edward Reed, had taken a table-knife from one of his children, and was brandishing it in a sportive way over his head, when the lightning struck the knife, which, serving as a condactor, conveyed the flame down his arm, and scorched it in so shocking a manner as to make it doubtful, for some time, whether he might not be obliged to submit to amputation.

That parte the Leeds and Liverpool Canal between Henfield and Blackburn, after having remained several years in an unfinished state, was completed on the 21st of June last, and has been since used as a direct communication, by water, from

Mr. J. Grahame, author of "The Sabbath," &c. has endeavoured to put a poetical construction upon the defacement of Lord Nelson's monument, in the following curious lines:'Withhold; withhold, the sacrilegious hand, That lofty ruin still a ruin stand!

Nor let those lines which heav'n's own fire hath trac'd,


By mortal numbers ever be effac'd.
What record so sublime of him who fell,
Where thousand thunders peal'd his part-

As nature's sculpture trench'd by forky

As characters engrav'd by bolts from heav'n!

Inscrib'd by fate, leave then the unrivall'd plan,

The monument-an emblem of the man.

Died.] At Edinburgh, in his 78th year, Mr. David Head, writer, and a most accurate investigator of Scottish literature. He was acquainted with nearly almost all the men of letters within the last 50 years. Runciman, the painter, was one of his most intimate friends. He also knew Ruddi man, Gilbert Stuart, Fergusson, and Robert Burns; yet he never published any thing in a separate form, excepting a collection of Scottish ballads. He likewise enriched several popular works by adding his notes.

At Aberdeen, in the 69th year of his age, Mr. James Chalmers, the conductor of the Aberdeen Journal, during the long period of 46 years,

LL the apprehensions relative to the heavy rains, previous to the harvest, have been happily dissipated. The greatest mischief seems to have been done by a few heavy showers, merely local. The ears of wheat, even in the northern counties, are extremely large and productive. Some of them in the southern districts contain twenty-five clevels on an ear, and each clevel from four to five and six corns. Even on low and swampy grounds, the straw is bright. Barley is a full crop and bright, excepting where it has been thrown down by heavy rains, or considerably hedge-grown. Oats promise an average crop, even on the uplands. The fens and low situations will be very productivc. Peas and vetches promise a good produce. Beans are not large on the halm, but wel! podded. Turnips, cabbages, coles, and all the brassica species, promise an abundant crop.
