Dublin, March 10.
Execution of Quigly
On Saturday last, Francis O'Neil, otherwise Quigly, executed at the front of Kilmainham Gaol, pursuant to his sentence, for the robbery of Rev.Mr.Elrington. He behaved with great firmness, and was a sincere penitent; he admitted the justice of his sentence, and declared, that Kelly, who had been executed in the month of November last, for the same robbery, was innocent of the offence for which he suffered. Quigly, although a young man, was a noted robber, and at the head of a most daring banditti that infested this city, and which have been now broken up.

Herring the Pickpocket

Our readers will not fail to recollect, that this young man was detected at Vauxhall-Gardens, on the night of the Vittoria Fete, picking the pocket of Earl Normanton of his gold snuff box; for this offence he was tried and convicted at the Surry Assizes, and sentenced to seven years hard labour on board the hulks. He had not been so many weeks on board, however, when not finding himself very comfortable, he contrived to escape, and though strict search was made after him at the time, he eluded pursuit, and remained undiscovered till within these few days. Last week one of the light fingered fraternity was detected picking the pocket of a farmer at Bristol Fair, and was committed to Bristol Gaol for trial; soon after it was discovered, that he was no less a person than Mr.Herring, who, on being questioned, confessed that he had been in the neighbourhood of Bath and Bristol ever since his escape - and, during his residence in that part of the country, had been labouring in his vocation with tolerable success.

Confession of Murder
Monmouth, March 9.

About 27 years ago, the body of a young woman, named Mary Pritchard, was found in a mill-pond in the neighbourhood of Longtown, in the county of Hereford, with many marks of violence thereon, and a Coroner's Jury being summoned, after a patient investigation, delivered a verdict of wilful murder. The deceased had for some time lived servant with Mr.Gilbert, of Cluddock, and two young men, John Davis and James Jones, being her intimate acquaintance, suspicion fell upon them, and they were in consequence, apprehended. Jones had formerly lived at Mr.Gilbert's with her as a fellow servant; but his then mistress (Mrs.Hopkins, of Irelandon) swearing that he was in her house all the evening, that he went to bed before her, and that he did not rise till after she was up; and this being corroborated by a boy, who swore he slept with him, and that to the best of his knowledge, he was not out of his bed until he arrose with him to go to their usual employment, he was discharged. Davis, also proved his innocence.
Some time after this, Jones left the neighbourhood, and took up his residence in Monmouthshire, when he married, and had five children, but his wife has been dead some years, and he is now in the decline of life. Being at length severely afflicted with illness, and fearing the approach of death, he sent a few days since for the Rev.Mr.Sayce, of Trellick, to whom he made a full confession, of the murder. He acknowledges that he retired to rest with the boy before his mistress went to bed, that when he thought all the family were asleep (having previously appointed to meet the unhappy girl, who was pregnant by him) he stole out of the house, committed the horrid deed, and returned to his bed without disturbing any one, having been but a few minutes absent. He still lives, though in a very weak state, and appears much easier in his mind since the confession.- His present residence is on Penalth Common, near the Hargoed, about three miles from hence.

Lewes, March 21, 1814

The business of Assize for the county of Kent, commenced on Tuesday last, at which there were only 57 prisoners for trial, forming a calendar which was considered extraordinarily light for a Lent Assize.
Our County Assizes commences this day, at Horsham, where the Judge arrived yesterday evening. The business, as we stated in our last, is likely to prove light in both Courts.

On Friday and Saturday last detachments from the 4th and 100th infantry, marched into this town, on their route to embark for North America to join their respective regiments.

A smuggling-cutter, laden with contraband spirits, was on Thursday last, captured off Rottengdean, by an armed vessel, and sent into Portsmouth.

On Tuesday night last two prisoners, confined in the House of Correction here, on charges of felony, viz. Richard Winter and John Gutsell, made their escape by the following means : they took out several iron hooks from the wall of their cell, which had supported the leaden water-pipe, and therewith succeeded in loosening the bricks in the wall, and making an aperture large enough to admit of their getting through into the prison yard; and although the gaoler had made use of the precaution of taking away nearly all their wearing apparel, yet they persevered in contriving to scale the high surrounding wall, and by their blankets torn into pieces suited to the purpose, let themselves down on the outside, and in this almost naked condition passed up the town, along the High-street for a considerable distance, and thence through Southover to Winter's house at Newhaven. An application was then made to a neighbour to receive them, and on being refused, Gutsell, after staying there about an hour, was furnished with a pair of flannel drawers, and in this dress, with a very old, worn-out round frock, hat, shoes and stockings, set out to make his way towards Eastbourn and Bexhill, which part of the country he was acquainted with, and he has not been heard of since. Winter having put on some warmer clothing, quitted Newhaven about three on Wednesday morning, but without having gone any distance off, he returned to his father's house in Newhaven, and remained there until Thursday evening, when he voluntarily sent for the constable to surrender himself, who thereupon brought him to Lewis again, from whence he was immediately sent to Horsham gaol, to be tried at the assizes.- There is great reason to hope that Gutsell will be taken, handbills having been distributed in all directions, offering a reward of forty pounds, and his dress being so very observable.

The want of coals was never known to exceed their present scarcity in this town and Brighton, the stocks of all the merchants at both places being totally exhausted, owing to the long-prevailing north-easterly winds, which have prevented the arrival of any colliers.

One day last week as a team of eight oxen were at plough in a field at Norton, belonging to Mr.Cooper, the beasts took fright at some wattles which the wind had put in motion, and ran away, continuing their career, until the plough, yokes, and chains were broken to pieces, by which accident the foremost of the team, and the most valuable beast of the eight, was dragged down, and had one of his legs broken above the hock, which obliged Mr.Cooper to have him killed.

A few days since a Silver Medal, struck in commemoration of the nativity of King Charles II was dug up by a labourer, in a hop-garden, at Seddlescomb, in this county. It is somewhat less, and much thinner than an half-crown piece, and in most excellent preservation. The words of the legend are, on one side, encircling the arm of England - Anglorum Nulli Hactenus.- On the reverse on a square, ornamented tablet -

Honor Prin,

I has a hole punched through it, and appears to have been worn as an amulet.

The Monumental Stone of Margery Scott, who died at Dalkeith, four miles from Edinburgh, in Scotland, at the great age of 125 years, exhibits the following inscription, copied verbatim from the stone, by our correspondent; and though, possibly, it may before have found its way to the press, in the same manner, yet, we think it will prove new to many of our Readers, we insert it for their amusement.

Stay, Traveller, until my Life you've read;
The Living may get knowledge from the Dead.
Five times five years I liv'd a Virgin's life;
Ten times five years I liv'd a virtuous wife;
Ten times five years I liv'd a widow chaste;
Now weary of this mortal life, I rest.
Four times five years the Commonwealth I saw;
Four times the subjects rise against the law.
Twice have I seen proud Prelacy pull'd down,
And twice the Cloak was banish'd for the Gown.
I from my cradle to my grave have seen,
Eight mighty Kings of Scotland, and a Queen.
The end of Stuart's race, I've seen, and more,
My country bought and sold for English ore.
Such desolation in my time has been;
And I've the whole, in full perfection, seen.

We are sorry to say, it is found that potatoes in many depots, especially those in trenches, have suffered very materially by the intense frosts; in some they are nearly all destroyed.

Died. On Saturday, the 12th inst. at her son's, at Comb Place, near this town, Mrs.Shiffner, aged 78, relict of Henry Shiffner, Esq. of Pontrylass, Herefordshire.
A short time since, aged 82, Mr.Manary Bishop, of Battle, formerly a respectable attorney and solicitor of that place.
On Thursday the 10th inst. at his house at Battle, John Hammond Sampson, esq.

Brighton, March 21, 1814.

We have no fresh arrivals to announce, nor do we expect any of consequence before Easter, when the town, will no doubt, resume its wonted cheerfulness and gaiety.
The following sojourners took their departure last week :-
Mrs.Thellusson - Mr.J.Bloomfield - General Bailey - The Rev.Mr.Vansittart - Capt.Stopford, and Mr.Wynne Belasque.

The very liberal subscriptions entered into at Lewes, at Brighton, and at Hastings, for the relief of the suffering Germans, must be highly gratifying to the feelings of humanity; and neighbouring counties, will not be backward in following such laudable examples.

A Hoax.- One day last week, large bills were circulated in different parts of the town, announcing a donation of twenty chaldrons of coals, with directions to apply for tickets to Mr.Martin, North-street, before whose house, early in the forenoon, some hundreds of men, women, and children were assembled, which led to the discovery of the hoax, and caused the applicants to depart under great disappointment and mortification - We see no fun in thus sporting with the feelings of the poor.

A few evenings ago, the drying lines in the yard of Mrs.Brook, in Sussex-Place, were robbed of all the linen of what is called a two months wash, by some thieves, who carried off their booty. Several persons are strongly suspected of the theft; but as yet, none have been taken into custody.
This species of depredation has of late been so frequently practised, we should have thought, that it would have deterred persons from leaving their clothes out after dark.

One day last week as a gentleman and his valet were on their way to Brighton, in a gig, their horse, in descending Piecomb-hill fell, when the valet, in jumping down to assist the horse (a spirited one), in recovering himself, had the misfortune to break one of his legs. He was taken to the house of Mr.Bull, and kindly treated till the next day, when he was removed to Brighton.

Yesterday se'nnight two very excellent and appropriate sermons were preached at the chapel, of St.John the Evangelist, Chichester, by the Rev.Mr.Babbut, the Chaplain, in aid of the general fund, for the relief of the distressed Germans, which to the honour of the city, produced a very liberal contribution, amounting, after the morning service to 45 and after that of the evening to 21.- Total 56.

A barn at Ardingly, near Cuckfield, containing six loads of wheat, and belonging to Mr.Simmons, we hear, was on Tuesday night, consumed by fire.

Early on the morning of yesterday se'nnight, the house of Mr.Ewens, of St.Peter the Lesser, in North Street, Chichester, was burglariously entered at the window of the cellar, by some hungry thieves, who stole therein about fifteen stones of pickled pork, and two and a half pounds of butter, some cheese and other edibles, all of which they contrived to carry off undiscovered.

Thursday evening last, as Mr.Guy, of Chichester, was returning home in his chaise, the driver, and the gardener, (whom he had taken up on the road) by a sudden jolt, in turning round the Cross, were thrown from their situations, and the latter much hurt. The horse continued his course home, and stopped at his master's door, where Mr.G. called his servant, and stepped out very coolly, observing, that he was not under the least alarm, being well aware of the sagacity of his horse.

Last Tuesday evening Mr.Simmons, salesman, was stopped on the road, near Pease-Pottage Gate, by a man and woman, (the former of whom was armed with a short gun), who robbed him of drafts and notes to the amount of 300, and got clear off with their booty.

On the morning of yesterday se'nnight, a boy took up a loaded gun, and discharged it at Mr.Halsted's shepherd, in his own kitchen, at Lavant, near Chichester, and lodged a part of its contents in the breast of the shepherd; but, fortunately, the gun being lightly charged, and the man having on three waistcoats, the shotcorns penetrated his flesh to no alarming depth. They were all extracted in the course of the day, and he is now doing well. The above accident furnishes a fresh instance of the imprudence of putting guns away loaded.

Last Thursday a detachment of the 41st regiment, marched from Chichester barracks, on its route to embark for service in France, under the gallant Wellington.

On Friday se'nnight a young woman in the service of Mr.Walker, supervisor of excise, in the South-street, Chichester, purchased two penny's worth of arsenic, and having swallowed the greatest part of it, she languished under its poisonous effects , till last Tuesday evening, when she expired in great agony.

Died, - In London, R.H.A.Bennett, esq. sincerely regretted by his numerous friends and acquaintances. By the demise of Mr.B. the philanthropic world has lost one of its most useful and ardent supporters; in short, his charity new no bounds.
On Wednesday last, at his house, in Artillery-place, J.Miles, esq. He has left a widow and two daughters to bewail his loss.

Wanted, on Lady-day next, a married man, as Carter. A Cottage, with good garden, will be provided for him; and wages not a particular object, provided he can have a good character from his last place, for honesty, sobriety, and industry.
Enquire of Mr.Wm.Knight, of Firle.

In the matter of Henry Hall a Bankrupt.

Notice is hereby given, that unless the Debtors to this Estate pay the amount of their respective Debts into the Bank of Messrs.Wood, Hall, & Co. (of which they have already been appraised) within fourteen days from the date hereof, proceedings at law will be taken against them for the recovery of the same.

AFTER the example of the Metropolis, and many, if not most of the populous Towns in England, a Subscription is set on foot in this Place and Neighbourhood, for the Relief of our most severely suffering, and poor Brethren, in those parts where the horrors and havock of War, have brought on the most complicated Scenes of Human Misery and Wretchedness; and it is earnestly and confidently hoped and believed, that all, who will well consider and contrast the Blessings they enjoy, under Providence, in their own undisturbed and happy Island, with what has passed, and is passing on the Continent, will most readily and charitably step forward, on this occasion, to distribute, and do good. But, should any spur be wanting to simulate such commiseration, the perusal of a Pamphlet, detailing what happened at, and in the Vicinity of Leipsic, "by an Eye-Witness", cannot fail to be effectual.
