Some Selected Reports from the Salisbury and Winchester Journal
Monday, May 25th, 1812
EXECUTION of JOHN BELLINGHAM.- The crowd assembled to witness the execution of this man was by no means so great as has been collected on former occasions. The wetness of the morning, and the recollection of the dreadful catastrophe at the execution of Holloway and Haggerty, prevented many from attending, whose curiosity would otherwise have led them to witness the exit of Bellingham. This catastrophe was judiciously held out as a caution to those who did not attend, by large posting bills on the house at the entrance to the Old Bailey, and also held up on poles, "Beware of entering the crowd ! - Remember ! thirty poor creatures were pressed to death by the crowd when Haggerty and Holloway were executed !" - Many who came and read this warning, walked away, particularly when there appeared the least danger of a crowd being collected.
MONDAY, MAY 18.
We understand that Bellingham passed the whole of yesterday and last night very calmly. In addition to the assistance of the Rev.Dr.Ford, the Ordinary of Newgate, in his religious exercises, Mr.Butterworth, the bookseller, was introduced to him by Mr.Newman the Keeper of Newgate, and Bellingham joined each of them in separate prayer, with every appearance of devotion, and in conversation with these Gentlemen he expressed his sorrow for the death of Mr.Perceval, and for the affliction in which his family was involved. He held the same language with Mr.Sheriff Heygate, whilst he solemnly assured the Sheriff that the act of killing Mr. Perceval was entirely his own, occasioned solely by the refusal of the Government to attend to his claims, and without co-operation or communication on the subject with any person whatever. Yet, with all his expressions of sorrow for the fate of Mr. Perceval, and the misery of his family, neither Priest nor Layman, Churchman nor Dissenter could obtain from him any acknowledgement of guilt on his own part in the premeditated assassination by which he had produced so much and such wide-spread grief. That[?] perverted imagination, under which he had taken the execution of vengence into his own hands,- vengence too for imaginary wrongs, - and which he denominated Justice, seem to support him through all the preparations for his execution, and even up to the last awful moment.
Soon after seven o'clock this morning, the Lord Mayor and Sheriffs arrived at the Sessions House, in the Old Bailey were Lord Sefton, Mr. Berkeley Craven, and about 20 other Gentlemen were assembled. The Lord Mayor and Sheriffs went from the Sessions House to the prison, to see the sentence of the law put in execution. At half past seven the prisoner, accompanied by the Rev.Dr. Ford, came down from his cell to have his irons knocked off, on which he gave directions with as much indifference as if it had been an ordinary business. He was dressed in a brown great coat, the same that he wore at his trial, a striped kerseymere waistcoat, light pantaloons, and his shoes down at the heels. As soon as his irons were off, he went, accompanied by Dr.Ford, the Lord Mayor and Sheriffs, and two or three Gentlemen to a room adjoining the Press-yard, to wait until the proper time for proceeding to the scaffold. Here he talked freely with several gentlemen, declaring he had no anxiety but what he felt for his family. He changed his shoes for Hessian boots; and having earnestly assured Sheriff Heygate (as above stated) that he had no associate in the transaction, he turned round to a table on which the ropes for binding his hands and arms, and the one with which he was to be executed, were lying, and said, "Gentlemen, I am quite ready." One of the attendants then proceeded to fasten his wrists together : he turned up the sleeves of his coat, and clasping his hands together, presented them to the man who held the cord, and said, "So ?", when they were fastened, he desired the attendant to pull down his sleeves so as to cover the cord. The officer then proceeded to secure his arms by a rope behind him: when the man had finished, he moved his arms upwards, to ascertain whether he could reach his neck; and being apprehensive that in struggling he might do so, he requested that the cord might be further tightened, which was accordingly done. During the whole of this scene, his voice never faultered; but as he left the room to proceed to the place of execution, he stooped down his head, and appeared to wipe off a tear. He walked firmly through the Press-yard and Prison to the scaffold in front, which he ascended with a light step; his countenance appeared cheerful and calm; he looked about him a little lightly and rapidly, which seems to have been his usual manner and gesture; but he had no air of triumph, nor disposition to pay attention to the mob, among whom one or two said "God bless you !" and were immediately checked by others crying "Silence !"
Before the cap was put over his face, Dr.Ford asked if he had any last communication to make, or any thing in particular to say ? He was again proceeding about Russia and his family; when Dr.Ford stopped him calling his attention to the eternity into which he was entering, and praying, Bellingham prayed fervently also. The last thing the Clergyman said to him, was asking him how he felt ? To which he answered calmly and collectively, saying, "he thanked God for enabling him to meet his fate with so much fortitude and resignation."
When the executioner proceeded to put the cap over his face, Bellingham objected to it, and expressed a strong wish the business could be done without it; but Dr.Ford said that was impossible. The cap was then put on, and Dr.Ford having prayed with the criminal about a minute, the executioner knocked away the bolt of the internal square of the scaffold, as the clock was striking eight; the Clergyman retired, and Bellingham dropped, then remaining visible only down to his knees : he struggled very little, and was dead in a few minutes, but hung till nine o'clock, when the body was cut down, and taken in a cart to St.Bartholomew's Hospital, when the populace dispersed. - Sir Wm. Blisard [?] and other surgeons immediately began the dissection of the body.
During the whole of this scene, the peace of the City was admirably preserved by Peace Officers, there being none of the Military within view, though soldiers were stationed in St.George's-fields, in readiness to act had there been any disturbances to ....
SHIPWRECK.- On Sunday morning last, about four o'clock, the weather being thick and hazy, the ship Irlam, (letter of marque) bound from Barbadoes to Liverpool, laden with sugar and cotton, and having on board part of the skeleton of the 16th regiment of foot, commanded by Capt. Hall, consisting of 10 officers, and 62 rank and file, and 32 women and children, struck on Tusear-rock; so quick was her destruction, that the unhappy sufferers had but just time to get into the boats, some half dressed, others almost naked, when she filled with water, and in a short time went to pieces. A sailor, a drummer, and four children unfortunately perished. Three men putting off from the ship in the jolly-boat, unable to reach the rock, were blown to sea, but some hopes are entertained that they were picked up. The only means by which the passengers and crew of this ill fated vessel could save their lives was to seek refuge on the rock, which was quite inaccessible at that side, the summit being not less than thirty feet from the surface of the water, otherwise death must have been the consequence. This they were enabled to accomplish with the assistance of a number of men, (providentially placed there for the purpose of laying the foundation of a light house), who, with a degree of humanity reflective of the highest credit, immediately commenced this arduous task, which was effected by drawing the men up from the boats, one by one, with a rope fastened round the waist, and placing the children in a bag made fast to the end of the rope. At this time a brig hove in sight, which on discovering the ship a total wreck, and the rock covered with people, instantly lay-to, when seven of the Officers, the Ladies, the Master, and a number of sailors and soldiers, were conveyed on board, by the frequent returning of the boat. In the course of this effort it came to blow with increased violence, and the vessel was compelled to get under weigh, leaving on the rock three Officers, sixteen privates, one woman, the mate, and twelve seamen, who, after remaining there for two days and nights, were on Monday evening brought to town in a boat belonging to Mr. John Roach. The Officers lost property to a considerable amount. One Gentleman had plate on board worth £300. The Mate lost a box containing 200 guineas, the fruit of many years toil. We cannot close this narrative without mentioning the savage-like conduct of a monster in human form, who passed in a brig, (we are sorry to say unknown, otherwise we would state her name, and exhibit her ruffian master to public detestation,) deaf to the entreaties of the sufferers. The following are the names of the Officers and Ladies:- Captain Hall, his Lady, and three young children; Captain Nugent and Lady; Lieut.Ross, his Lady, and an infant child; Lieuts. Timperly, Welton, O'Hara, and Gregory; Ensigns Hays and Hannigan; Assistant-Surgeon O'Reilly. - Wexford Journal, May 14.

Mr. Lethbridge has notified to the freeholders of the county of Somerset his intention to withdraw himself from their service at the end of the present Parliament - not under any apprehension of an opposition to his re-election; but because, from a variety of circumstances, he finds himself unable to devote so large a portion of time as is requisite to the performance of those important duties which fall upon the Representatives of so extensive a county, and under that impression he feels bound to relinquish a trust which he cannot discharge with satisfaction to himself. - Mr. Gore Langton has offered himself as a Candidate once more to fill that distinguished situation, as the successor to Mr. Lethbridge.
The following particulars, illustrative of the character of the lamented Mr. Perceval :- It is certain he never would receive the salary attached to the place of the Chancellor of the Exchequer, though without private fortune, and with a family of 12 children.- The emoluments resulting from the Duchy of Lancaster, was all that he received from Government. He was told by an Opposition Member, when a Tellership of the Exchequer was vacant, that if be chosen to apply for it for his son the House would grant it unanimously, knowing he had never brought forward any claims for his services, - but he refused this also, and replied, that his son must work as he had done before him. The day before he met his death (Sunday) he asked his Valet what engagements he had for that day ? He answered, none; - what not anyone to dinner ? No; - Then I am happy, for I shall have a pleasure I seldom enjoy, of dining with my family alone.- It so happened, that all his children dined at home that day.- In the evening he called for the prayer book, and read the service to his whole family. At the usual hour Mrs. Perceval ordered the children to bed, but he begged her to give them leave to stay up a little longer, as he seldom had the enjoyment of their company all together.- When the time expired, he kissed them all, and gave them his blessing very remarkably. A Sunday passed in this manner must be remembered by poor Mrs. Perceval with satisfaction, though tinged with the severest sorrow.
On Monday a numerous and very highly respectable meeting of the inhabitants of Frome was held, for the purpose of signing an address and condolence to the Prince Regent, on the late atrocious assassination of the Right.Hon.

To the Gentlemen, Clergy, and Freeholders of the
County of Wilts.
IMPRESSED with the warmest gratitude for the very flattering reception and unexampled success which I have experienced, as far as my Canvass has extended, I should do an injustice to my own feelings if I delayed this public expression of obligation to those who have already promised me their support; and for a support so signal, I should make an ill return, if I now relaxed a moment in my exertions.
The Canvass, therefore, which I have so auspiciously begun, it is my intention strenuously to continue through the county.
Where it has not been hitherto in my power to solicit in person the votes and interest of individual freeholders, I trust it will be imputed to unavoidable circumstances, inseparable from the hurry of such an occasion, and not to inattention or want of respect.
I am, GENTLEMEN,
Your very grateful and obedient Servant,
SALISBURY, March 10, 1812.
To the Gentlemen, Clergy, and Freeholders of
the County of Berks.
MR. VANSITTART's Address to you, declining to become a Candidate again to represent this Country in Parliament, and the several other publications which have appeared in the Reading Mercury, added to the circumstance of a canvass having commenced, compel me to offer myself to your notice sooner than I had intended.
If any thing can excite a sense of the value, and a proper exercise of the elective franchise, the weight and application of our taxes, the continuance of sinecures, the increase of pensions, the absence of our gold, and the planting of an army of foreigners in the heart of our country, must produce that effect.
It is trite saying among the apologists for corruption, that it originates with the people; as a proof of this calumny, they refer to the scenes that rotten Boroughs exhibit, where, in some of them, the voters are debased by dependence on an opulent patron, and in others are depraved by their feuds and contentions for the price of representation, which (disregarding their oaths) they claim as their birth-right, and each shelters himself from the disgrace of bribery and perjury by the equal infamy of his neighbour.
It is one of the best principles of our constitution, that no man shall be taxed without his consent. To put this principle into practice, and to extend the right of election to all who possess a qualification in the taxes they pay, will afford the best remedy for the calamities and grievances of the country, and the surest safeguard against the abuse of power. If Electors shall then require bribes and treats, and impoverish the Candidate before they make him their representative; let his frauds and peculations be imputed to them - then, and not till then, let it be said "that corruption originates with the people."
In giving your suffrages freely and without cost, you will not only avoid the imputations that attach to the voters in purchased Boroughs, but you will have a right to expect from your Representative that he will follow your example and do his duty honestly and independently, by gratuitously bestowing his best services for his country's good.
Upon these principles I offer myself a Candidate at the next Election, confidently relying that your conviction of the importance of these considerations will impel you to the Hustings at your own expence.
I pledge myself to you, that, if I an elected, I will most strenuously promote and support a Reform in Parliament, and will attach myself neither to those who possess, nor to those who seek the emoluments of office, having no views in soliciting your sufferages beyond the gratification of serving my country.
I am, Gentlemen,
Your faithful Friends and Servant,
DEPFORD [?], March 6, 1812.
