Some Selected Reports from The Northampton Mercury

Saturday, April 30th, 1796

Kyd Wake, the journeyman printer, lately convicted of the mean maliciousness of insulting his Majesty, on his way to the House of Peers, at the opening of the present session of Parliament, was on Thursday brought up to receive sentence in the Court of King's Bench, at Westminster. Affidavits made by himself and 13 others, were produced in exculpation; which assigned as a reason for the horrid grimaces, which the witnesses on the trial stated that the prisoner made at the King, that he was near-sighted; and having left his glass behind him, he was apt to make wry faces on looking earnestly at any object. The Court took time to consider of the sentence. - We cannot help hinting, that if a good flogging were to constitute part of his punishment, the cause of his making wry faces would then no longer be equivocal.

An Improved Method of Horse-Shoeing,
By the late Mr.Sainbel.

Mr.Sainbel directs that, if there be no natural defect, nothing is to be pared from the foot, but what breaks the level of the wall; the sole binders (or bars) and frog are not to be touched; and from feet which have been often shoed (if they be good) nothing is to be taken from the wall more than the old horn, which is not sufficiently solid to receive the shoe; and the sole and frog to be only cleansed from the proud parts, which are ready to come off spontaneously. This injunction the author enforces by pointing out the different inconveniences which result from over-paring, according to the different qualities of the foot; and he adds a very reasonable caution against using the rasp above the rivets of the nails. He objects to the custom of greasing the hoofs, as being injurious by stopping up the pores.


The Lodges at Floor-Field and Charlton-Hill are now open for the Reception of inoculated Patients, under the Direction of Mr.Thomas, a Member of the Corporation of Surgeons, &c. &c. and Successor to Mr.Gristock.

Market-Harborough, April 26th, 1796.

Friday and Saturday's Posts.

We state the following fact as a shocking proof of the most criminal negligence, if not something worse. Mr.Joseph Eyre, constable of Sheffield, having been informed that a large quantity of flour had been stored in a warehouse in Queen-street, ever since January last, determined to satisfy himself. On inspection he found twenty large sacks of flour, in such a degree of putrefaction, that they were enveloped with millions of mites ! The owner is a person resident at Brigg, in Lincolnshire. - Sheffield Iris.

STAMFORD, April 22. Informations are lodged against three persons of some consideration in the corn trade, for being concerned in illegal practices in respect to the public markets; by which it appears that the price of grain has long since been prevented, and is still prevented from finding it's proper level; as there are two or three instances, which will be, it is expected, fully made out, the punishment will doubtless be exemplary . The rogues in grain are discovered, and will be brought from those retreats where they have so long practised on the feelings of the public, often too cool, generous, and unsuspecting.

WINCHESTER, April 23. Tuesday last Mr.Peter Wooldridge, a miller and mealman, was fined by the Magistrates of this city, for neglecting to deliver a declaration that he would return a just account of the corn he should buy, two pounds; for neglecting to make a due return, ten pounds; and for delivering a false return, ten pounds, by which false return the Magistrates were compelled to set the assize of bread at 2s 1d instead of 16d the half-peck loaf. The above several fines were laid out in bread, and distributed to the poor; and the effigy of the miller was carried through the city, and consigned to the flames with every mark of detestation.
The Magistrates of Winchester have offered a reward of 20 for information of any dairyman, higler, butcher, or other persons, detected in selling or buying any commodities before the market hour, or of forestalling, engrossing, or regrating.
The Mayor, having reason to believe that there is a combination of Millers and Mealmen, who meet regularly every Saturday to keep up the price of flour and meal, has further offered a reward of twenty guineas to any informer on conviction of the parties.

CAMBRIDGE, April 27. Thursday last, whilst a poor woman at Shotley was removing the ashes from her oven, some of the embers blew upon the thatch'd roof of the house, which instantly took fire, and in her eagerness to preserve her furniture, and little all, assisted by her child, a boy about three years old, they so frequently persevered in their attempts, that at length the roof fell in, and unhappily both of them perished in the flames.

BATH, April 27. Last Friday died, in the 69th year of his age, at Barrow-Court, in this county, John Gore, Esq. a gentleman of unblemished honour and inflexible integrity.- His uncommon liberality of spirit, and his extensive charities, are too well known to want description; they may be equalled, but cannot be exceeded. He has left his manors and estates in Monmouthshire to his nephew, the Rev.Charles Gore, and an ample legacy to John the third son of Wm.Gore Langton, Esq. Leaving no issue, the family estates descend to his only brother and heir, Edward Gore, Esq. of Kiddington, Oxfordshire. - A few days ago also died Mr.Durravan, comedian.

A numerous and respectable Meeting of the Inhabitants was held at the Guildhall, on Tuesday, for the purpose of nominating a Member to represent this Town in Parliament, in the room of Lord Compton, (now Earl of Northampton); when the Hon.Spencer Perceval, Deputy Recorder of this Borough, was proposed, and meeting with the most unanimous approbation, Mr.Perceval, in a short but animated speech, expressed his gratitude for the honour conferred on him, stated the satisfaction he experienced in finding that in all the great and important matters of Government that had been lately agitated, his own sentiments were so perfectly coincident not only with those of his Noble Relation, to whose seat in Parliament he was now proposed to succeed in a manner so flattering to his own feelings; but with the opinions of those also who were about to place him in so exalted a situation - a situation which, in every point of view, could not but be highly gratifying to him, and the important Duties of which (if had ultimately the honour of being elected) he should at all times endeavour to fulfil to the utmost of his power and abilities.

A Meeting of the Mayor and Corporation was held yesterday at the Guildhall, for the purpose of choosing a Recorder of this Borough; when the Earl of Northampton was unanimously elected, in the room of his Lordship's deceased Father. The Meeting was the most numerous ever remembered.

The Rutland regiment of fencible cavalry have received a route to march to Ayr, Kilmarnock, and Irvine, in North Britain; and the first division, under the command of Major Bellares, entered Scotland on Monday.- It is worthy of remark, the regiment at one and the same time was in three dominions, viz. England, Scotland, and Wales. It is expected they will be encamped in the course of the summer.

About one o'clock on Wednesday last, a fire broke out at East-Haddon, in this county, which in a short time consumed a Cottage and some outbuildings, but was fortunately got under without doing any further damage.- The accident was occasioned by some hot ashes being carelessly thrown into an out-house.
On Wednesday last, between one and two o'clock, a fire broke out at the dwelling house of Mrs.Beal, at Sapcote, in Leicestershire; which consumed a part of the same, together with part of the adjoining house belonging to Mr.Hipwell, but it was extinguished in about two hours by the timely exertions of the neighbours. It is supposed this accident was occasioned by the foot of the chimney taking fire.

On Monday the 18th instant, an inquisition was taken at Harlington, in the county of Bedford, before Richard Ambrose Reddall, Gent, coroner of the honour of Ampthill, upon view of the body of John Bavister, a labouring man, who as he was digging gravel on Saturday preceding, was killed by a large quantity of gravel falling upon him : he was dug out with all possible speed, but too late to save his life.- Verdict, Accidental Death.

On Tuesday se'nnight an atrocious murder was committed at Nottingham; whilst a woman was drinking at a public-house with some soldiers, her husband entered the room, and immediately seizing her, cut her throat from ear to ear. The villain made his escape.

And whereas divers malicious Reports have long prevailed, evidently with a View to injure him in his Character and professional Capacity, he feels himself called upon (by that Duty he owes himself and Friends) to contradict every Idea which has been so long circulated, of his Intention of leaving his Situation; and at the same Time to assure the Public, the Abettors of such Reports in future will be dealt with as rigorously as possible.
