Some Selected Reports from the Salisbury and Winchester Journal

Monday, June 22nd, 1812


The Little Belt sloop of war is now moored near Battersea-bridge, preparatory to her being broken up.

It is now the general opinion in Plymouth, that the late dreadful fire in the Dock-yard, was occasioned by an incendiary. This also, it is stated, in the opinion of those who have conducted the investigation. It appears that there was no hemp within 70 feet of the spot when the fire broke out.

On the 4th of this month the Yeomanry of the city of Armagh were assembled, according to the established custom of honouring the King's Birth day. After being dismissed the corps, commanded by Mr. J. Barnes, they laid down their arms, refusing to serve any longer under their Captain, because he has signed the Protestant Petition to the Legislature, in favour of Catholic Emancipation.

On the 9th instant, a marine on board the Fyen prison-ship, lying in the Medway, fell from a stage into the sea, and was sinking, when a French Officer, of the name of Guillon Khor, jumped immediately with his clothes and boots on, from the forecastle, which is about 25 feet high, after him, and held him for several minutes, at the risk of his own life, the marine holding him fast by the collar, which no doubt would have caused the death of the French Officer, if his strength had not sustained him, till a boat came in time to save them; the marine was almost lifeless.

A woman named Marney, was killed in a pugilistic combat with another woman, named Brookey, on Saturday night, in Rainbridge-street, St. Giles's. The deceased was the first aggressor, when in a state of intoxication. A sharp battle was fought, and the deceased lay stunned, as was supposed, at the foot of a staircase; but on attempting to move her, it turned out she was dead.

EXECUTION.- This morning Thomas Flanaghan, Neil Daley, and George Smith for forgeries, were, pursuant to their sentences, executed before the Debtors door, Newgate. These three unfortunate criminals were brought on the scaffold at 8 o'clock, where they remained a few minutes in prayer, and were then launched off; after being suspended the usual time, they were cut down and delivered over to their friends for interment. Flanaghan and Daley were Catholics, and were attended by a Clergyman of that persuasion. Smith was attended by Dr. Ford the Ordinary; they all behaved with becoming piety and resignation.


Information has been given to Government by a Deputation of Gentlemen from Lancashire, that the Luddites have established forges for the manufacture of pikes, and continue actively employed in stealing fire-arms. They also have stolen quantities of lead pipes and linings to the drying vats. Some small bodies of them have also been seen practising the military exercise on the high hills and skirts of woods, at a very early hour in the morning. What can these infatuated men propose to themselves ? Their own ruin must be the inevitable consequence of their folly and wickedness.
Between eleven and twelve o'clock on Thursday night, Mr. Nadin, assisted by a picquet of military, took into custody (and seized the papers) of 38 persons unlawfully assembled at a public-house, in Ancoat's-lane, Manchester. They stated the object of their meeting to be for the petitioning for Peace and Parliamentary Reform, but their papers and books appeared to be of a different tendency. They were examined by the Magistrates, at the New Bayley on Friday, which examination was adjourned to Saturday, when it was resumed, and the whole 38 were committed to Lancaster, to take their trials, for having administered the abominable and unlawful Oath, known by the name of Twisting in.
The RIOTERS. - On Saturday Joseph Thompson and John Temples, two of the rioters condemned at Chester, were executed there. They behaved penitently, and acknowledged the justice of their sentence. The sentence of the other three is respited for 14 days : it is supposed they will be reprieved. - On the same day the eight persons condemned at Lancaster, viz. James Smith, Thomas Kerfoot, John Fletcher, and Abraham Charlson, for burning a mill, machinery, &c. John Howorth, John Lee>, and Thomas Hoyle, for breaking into a house, and stealing bread and cheese, &c. and Hannah Smith, for stealing potatoes in Manchester market, were executed pursuant of their sentence. Their conduct manifested great indifference and unconcern, as to the awful state they were placed in, almost to the moment of leaving their cells, and all the exortations of the Chaplain of the gaol appeared to have no effect in awakening them to repentance : but before they were turned off they became penitent, confessed their offences, and called on the God of Heaven to have mercy on them as miserable sinners.

Port News.

FALMOUTH. June 18. The Duke of Kent packet, from Lisbon in ten days, arrived this morning. -- The Nonpareil schooner had sailed for Plymouth with the official account of the late success of General Hill at the bridge of Almarez, which is spoken of as being of a very brilliant and important nature·.- When the Duke of Kent left Lisbon, Lord Wellington was said to moving again northward; Marmout's communication with Soult was entirely cut off, and in consequence he had moved from Salamanca towards Madrid, and was reported to be at Avila.
The following packets sailed yesterday. viz, the Chichester, for Surinam; Carteret, for New York and Halifax; Windsor Castle, for Malta; and Diana, for Cadiz.

PLYMOUTH, June 19. - On Tuesday arrived the Andromache, of 38 guns, from off the coast of Spain, and the Nonpareil schooner, from Lisbon, with the official account of Sir Rowland Hill's, gallant attack of the French posts at Almarez. Major Currie landed with the dispatches, and set off for London. He had with him a standard taken by the 71st regiment.
A superb Chapel is about to be built at the back of the Government-House at Dock, for the use of the Army, Navy, Ordnance, and Dock-yard. The plan is by Mr. Wyatt; the estimated expense £13,000.
On Wednesday came in the Muros, of 18 guns, from the eastward, with a fleet for Newfoundland. - Charles and Sarah, Richardson, from London, to Malta, chaced by two lugger privateers off the Lizard, and received much damage in her sails and rigging, put in to refit.- Boyne, of 98 guns, Conquestador, Colossus, and Tigre, of 74 guns each, from a cruize off Brest.- Armide, of 36 guns, from off Bourdeaux.
Sailed the Dreadnought, of 98 guns, for Portsmouth; Talbot, of 18 guns, for Cork; and the Mutine, of 18 guns, for the Downs.
On the 5th inst. Lieut. Thompson, of the Medusa, of 36 guns, with a crew of 28 men, gallantly volunteered the cutting out a large French ship of 400 tons, with 8 guns, and a crew of 84 men, then lying under the protection of a heavy battery near Bourdeaux; and notwithstanding the inequality of the force, they succeeded without the loss of any killed, and only 4 men wounded; but when in the act of bringing her out of the harbour, she unfortunately grounded, and to prevent a recapture, they were obliged to set fire to her. The French Captain and many of his crew were killed and wounded, and many others escaped by jumping overboard, and getting to the shore. The ship was laden with oak knees and other timber for ship-building, bound from Bayonne to Rochelle; had been laden twelve months, and got no further on her voyage. Some of the prisoners are arrived here.
This morning arrived the Hind revenue cutter from a cruize: last night, near Fowey, she fell in with a French lugger, of 14 twelve-pounders (4 only mounted), with 53 men, then in possession of an English brig, but on the Hind coming up, the Frenchmen took to the boat and left her; the Hind then gave the lugger three broadsides, and boarded her, in doing which she carried away her main and mizen masts, but got possession of and put men on board her, and were about to exchange prisoners, when the Hind's men discovered that she was sinking, took to the boat with 12 of the Frenchmen, and left her going down fast, then blowing a gale of wind at S.W. and she must have sunk soon after, as her side was stove in. The lugger had 7 men killed and 9 wounded; the Hind had none killed or wounded. It is supposed that the Frenchmen who left the brig were also lost, as the sea ran very high. The lugger is called the Incomparable, about 180 tons, and was within three miles of the shore when first chaced. We understand that the Hind's officers and crew behaved very gallantly on the occasion.

PORTSMOUTH, June 20. Vice-Adm. Martin sailed on Monday, in the Aeasta frigate, Capt. Kerr, for Lisbon. The Aeasta has on board a large quantity of specie, for payment to the troops in the Peninsula; on the delivery of which the Aeasta will proceed to South America.

MONDAY, JUNE 1812, 22.

A letter from an Officer on board the Medusa frigate, dated North Coast of Spain, June 7. gives the following relation of the gallant dash made by the boats of that ship :-
"On the 5th of this month we were off the coast of France, a little to the south of Bourdeaux, and near a harbour called Arcasson we saw a large ship, apparently a man of war, lying at anchor with her sails loose. We hoisted American colours, which immediately brought out a French pilot, from whom we got intelligence as to her force and situation. We directly formed a scheme to cut her out, and to attack her the same night. About nine o'clock we hoisted out all our boats, and left the ship, half an-hour after, in four boats, well manned and armed. We pulled into the harbour, and observed her about twelve. She hailed us in French, but no answer being given she again hailed, but still no answer. She then fired a musket at the boats, on which we gave three cheers, and rowed along-side, through a heavy fire of musketry and large guns. We presently boarded her : the Frenchmen kept the deck about ten minutes, during which time we were cutting and slashing, and, after killing two men and wounding twelve, drove the rest below. She proved to be the National ship Dorade, having 14 guns and 100 men, with a large cargo of naval timber, bound to Rochfort. We were all much mortified that, owing to the passage being so intricate and no pilot, we were obliged to set her on fire; but we did not lose sight of the prize until we saw her in flames and heard her explode; when we stood again to our cruizing ground, the place from which I date this letter. I assure you my brother and I did not expect to escape so fortunately. One of our midshipmen was wounded; and in my attempt to board you will judge how narrowly I escaped, when I tell you I was nearly thrust down the ship's side by a bayonet at the end of musket: it. made a hole in my hat, which I hope to bring home to shew you."

The Dorsetshire regiments of Militia, in changing quarters, has marched across the kingdom, from East to West, viz. from Yarmouth, in Norfolk, to Falmouth, in Cornwall, being now stationed at Pendennis Castle.

During the present high price of bread, it is a duty, particularly incumbent on every person interested in the welfare of the poor, to see that they are not defrauded by such nefarious practices, and to bring the offenders to that punishment they so richly deserve.
