Sunday and Tuesday's Posts

A Court-martial held at Portsmouth on Captain Sir James Athol Wood, of the Pompee, and Captain Campbell, of the Tremendous, for not having done their utmost to bring to action the French squadron which escaped some time ago from L'Orient, terminated on Friday : the Court by their sentence, attached some degree of blame to Capt.Wood, but acquitted Capt.Campbell.

In the Court of Chancery, in Dublin, a few days ago, Mr.C.Plunket applied for the adjournment of an argument stating, "that he had but just received his brief, and had not had time properly to prepare himself." The Solicitor-General (Mr.Bushe), whose political conduct is of a very versatile character, opposed this motion, and observed, that "he supposed Mr.Plunket had been too much occupied with his Cabinet-making." "No," retorted the witty Ex-Attorney-General, "that could not be, for I am neither a joiner nor a turner !

Sir R.Corbett, Bart. has obtained an order from the Court of Chancery to try an issue at the next Shrewsbury assizes, to ascertain his claim to an estate of 10,000 per annum; he at present labours in the East India warehouses for about a guinea a week.

Robert Hepburn Kerr, who died in a poor-house at Kingston, Jamaica, in 1808, had he lived until now, would have been Duke of Roxburgh, with 100,000 in the funds.

Mr.Sheridan is a determined opposer of the leather tax. On his early acquaintance with the town of Stafford, he have a toast, "May the staple manufacture of Stafford (boots and shoes) be trodden under foot by the whole world !"

Captain Acres, the pedestrian, finished a wonderful undertaking in Somersetshire, on Saturday last. He had matched himself for a bet of 200 guineas, with a Baronet, to perform 300 miles in four days, viz. at a rate of 75 miles a day. He started from the Edgeware road, and did ninety miles within the first 24 hours, 80 the second day, 72 the third day, and 58 on Saturday. His last day's performance was the most trying.

A machine, invented by Mr.Blenkinsop, agent to J.C.Brandling, Esq. at Middleton, near Leeds, for the conveyance of coals, or any other article, without horses, was set to work on Wednesday se'nnight. It is, in fact, a steam-engine of four horses' power : with the assistance of cranks turning a cog-wheel, and iron cogs placed on one side of the rail-way, it is capable of moving, when lightly loaded, at the rate of ten miles an hour. Right waggons of coals, each weighing three tons and a half, were hooked to the machine, and in 23 minutes ran from Hunslet-Moor to the coal staith, about 1 1/2 mile, principally on a dead level, without the slightest accident. This invention will, in Mr.Brandling's concern, supersede the use of 50 horses.

It is stated from Sheffield, that two Bow-street Officers have been in the neighbourhood of Huddersfield for nearly three weeks past, and that they have been twisted in, or in other words, taken the oath of the Luddites. By this means they have learned their proceedings, and have discovered where their arms are concealed. Warrants were on Friday issued for the apprehension of 50 of the ringleaders, and in the course of the day a number of them were taken. A man is in custody on suspicion of being a deeply informed Luddite. There is also reason to hope, that the murderer of Mr.Horsfall will not long be undiscovered. The Queen's Bays were on duty during the whole of Thursday night and Friday morning; and the Scotch Greys have arrived from Manchester to assist in this business.

Thomson, one of the rioters hung at Chester, is said to have made considerable discoveries; he declared that the confederacy among the manufacturers owes its origin to the intrigues of Men of Exalted Rank; but on being questioned as to their names, he answered, like Serub, in the play, "that he could not tell."

One of Mr.Butt's powder-mills at Hounslow, blew up with a most dreadful explosion on Saturday morning : two men were miserably burnt and disfigured, but none killed.

At Newcastle Races, just as the race was finished, the temporary stand belonging to the White Hart Inn, being loaded with about 200 persons, gave way in the middle, and involved nearly 100 in the crash. About forty persons were seriously hurt, and ten or twelve most dangerously, several of them having broken limbs.

On Friday, T.Bowler was found guilty at the Old Bailey, for discharging a blunderbuss at Mr.Burrows, at Alperton, on the night of the 30th of May, with intent to kill him.

Horrible Catastrophe

On Monday morning about nine o'clock, the inhabitants of Plymouth were thrown into indescribable terror. Mr.Hyne, flour - merchant, of Old Town, Plymouth, while sitting at breakfast with his wife and two children, suddenly seized one of them, and cut its throat; he then seized the other, and on the interference of his agonized wife, he fired a pistol at her, when she fell, and completely severed the windpipe of the second child. He finished the horrible business by blowing his own brains out with a second pistol. The consternation of the neighbours on rushing to the scene of blood, may be easily conceived. Mrs.Hyne was found living; a ball had entered her shoulder, and she had been stunned for a moment by the report of the pistol, which was held very close, and only missed its intended effect by the agitation of Mr.Hyne. The unfortunate and wretched perpetrator of the deed was about 30 years of age, had always borne a good character, and was considered to be a man possessing property. He had transacted business on the Saturday preceding; was seen walking on the Hoe, at Plymouth, on the Sunday evening, with his family, apparently a happy groupe : and had promised to meet several tradesmen at Plymouth-dock on Monday morning.

Last week, a coroner's inquisition was taken at Minworth, Warwickshire, by Mr.Whately, on the body of Michael M'Gomesky, who, between seven and eight o'clock on Saturday night the 27th of June, was found murdered in a lane near that place. Suspicion falling on a person of the name of Tole, who, about half an hour before, had been seen with the deceased near the place where his body was found, an immediate pursuit was made by several persons, and he was apprehended at Bacon's End, near Colehill, that night. Three bundles of cloth stained with blood being found upon him, and having also blood on several parts of his clothes, he was taken to the prison in Birmingham, till the result of the coroner's inquest (which lasted three days) was known, when, after examination of a great number of witnesses, the jury returned a verdict of wilful murder against Tole, who has since been committed by the coroner to take his trial , at the next Warwick assizes. There appeared a number of wounds about the head of the deceased. The body. when found, was quite warm, and blood issuing from the wounds. The deceased and the prisoner were both Irishmen, and were traced from Lichfield to Minworth, and had been disposing of Irish cloth at several places. In the pockets of the deceased only two or three shillings in halfpence were found, but in those of the prisoner were several pounds of Bank of England and other notes. It appeared that the deceased had left Ireland about a fortnight ago, and had purchased some Irish linen of a man of the name of Daniel Grant, at Newcastle, and had not been connected with the prisoner before that time.

To the Memory of
The Right Honourable SPENCER PERCEVAL
THE Public are respectfully informed, that a Subscription has been entered into for the Purpose of ERECTING A MONUMENT to the Memory of the Right Honourable SPENCER PERCEVAL, in All Saints Church, NORTHAMPTON.

The Inhabitants of this Place conceive themselves particularly called upon to accelerate by every Means in their Power and Completion of this Testimony of Respect for that great and lamented Statesman, who has been intimately connected with this Town for the last twenty-six Years; upwards of twenty as Deputy-Recorder, and sixteen as one of its Representatives in Parliament.
The Execution of the Monument must necessarily be determined by the Amount of the Subscription, which ultimately , no Doubt, will be very far from inconsiderable; and as it may be naturally anticipated that many of Mr.Perceval's Friends, residing at a Distance from this Place, may be desirous of an Opportunity to testify their Feelings in a public Manner,
Subscriptions will be received by Messrs.Praeds, Mackworth, & Co. Bankers, London; and by Messrs.Smith, Hull, and Co. Bankers, Northampton.
