YORKSHIRE ASSIZES.

Guilty—Death.—George WHITE, aged 50, of Snainton; Mark BRAMAH, aged 21, of Sheffield, tailor; Benj. HORNIBLOWER, aged 17, of Tinsley Park, near Rotherham—for rapes committed on children under 10 years of age. John HOGGARD, aged 23, for stealing and killing a sheep at Scampston. Joseph DILWORTH, of Ovendon, for stealing money from a dwelling-house at that place.
 
To be transported for seven years.—Elijah CHATHAM, charged with stealing a piece of woollen cord at Rastwick.
 
To be imprisoned 18 months.—Peter ADAMS, late of Edinburhg [sic], charged with stealing two silk handkerchiefs at Whitby.
 
To be imprisoned 12 months.—James HAMILTON, charged with stealing a great coat at Lockton. Henry PONSONBY, of Southwark, mariner, charged with robbing his master's house at Huntington, and a house at Claxton. Matthew SPENCER, of Liversedge, and Richard MORTON, of Heckmondwicke, clothiers, charged with stealing wool.
 
To be imprisoned 6 months.—Mary WARING, of York, for bigamy.
 
Fined 1s.—John BOUDLING, of Ecclesfield, for manslaughter.
 
Six persons were acquitted.
 
In passing sentence on the three prisoners convicted of violating the persons of female children under ten years of age, Baron RICKARDS observed, that no language, at least none he could now command, was sufficient to describe the enormity of the offence of which they had been convicted, upon evidence which could leave no doubt in the minds of those who heard it;—that it was justly punished by the law with death, and if it had not, it would have been the wish of every man possessing the least spark of humanity, that it should; for it was unmanly, and worse than the conduct of the most savage beasts, instead of protecting, as men were intended by Providence to do, the female sex, to plunge innocent children of that sex into misery for life, to destroy their chastity, and root out from their minds every moral and religious principle.—His Lordship also observed, that if there was such an idea, as for the first time he had heard there was, that such a violation would tend to cure a disease some of the prisoners had brought upon themselves by their own vices, it was utterly false, and in the opinion of the surgeons who had been examined, could not diminish, but would grossly increase the effects of that disorder.

It had long been held as a maxim amongst the bigotted and interested members of the Romish church, that ignorance was the mother of devotion; consonantly with this established idea, the commonality were debarred the use of the Bible; and even so late as the time of Henry VIII. certain descriptions of persons were prohibited, under severe penalties, from reading that which, we are assured, shall "make us wise unto salvation." That any professing themselves Christians should be endeavouring to obscure the bright days of gospel times with the ancient gloom of superstitious priestcraft, we were not to expect; yet, too true it is, many characters, otherwise very distinguished ones, have set themselves in battle array against a measure which we have reason to believe, from its effects, proceeds from the King of Kings.—That this feeling of hostility against the constitution of Bible Societies results from any antipathy to the cause of religion, we would be the last even to insinuate; but it is undeniable that a morbid feeling exists in many quarters, which with a jaundiced eye views the proceedings of those charitable and disinterested institutions.—We have no particular allusion when we state, that the members of the Carlisle Auxiliary Bible Society were refused, from authority, the use of the Court-house (built at the expence of the county in general,—"at what! for a ducat?" and, we should think, therefore applicable to all public purposes) at their annual meeting, and were in consequence obliged to apply to Mrs. IRVING, who, in the most obliging manner, gratuitously accommodated them with the Assembly-room. This refusal savours a little of the chilling severity of high orthodoxy, and will not bear contrasting with the meekness and liberality of conduct displayed by the great founder of the Christian faith; whose principles and doctrines were only intended to be more extensively promulgated through the exertions of a Society which we hope will live to the end of time.
 
PHENOMENON IN NATURAL HISTORY.—Mrs. Ann BROUGHAM, of Maryport, sold some of her eggs, a few days ago, to a neighbour, who, on breaking one of them, was astonished to find in the yolk a perfect egg (about the size of a sparrow's), covered with a hard shell.
 
A subscription has been opened in Penrith for the assistance of the three persons lately convicted at our Sessions for stealing ale from a brewery in that place, for which those, in whose behalf the subscription has been opened, return thanks by public advertisement in another part of this Paper.—We have received a long article in exculpation of those concerned; but it is impossible: that we can interfere with the decision of a Jury, by giving publicity to the statement—The opinion of the people of Penrith, as evinced by their pecuniary assistance, is probably a much better commentary than any we can pretend, or would wish, to give.
 
SHAW, the celebrated pugilist, belonging to the life-guards, is reported to have killed with his own hand not less than five cuirassiers of the imperial guard, before he received his mortal wound in the battle of Waterloo.—SHAW was a native of Witherslack, in Westmorland, and was upwards of 6 ft. 3 in. in height.
 
A vacancy in the representation of the county of Durham has taken place, in consequence of Lord Barnard's acceptance of a commission in the army. The Hon. W. POWLETT, second son of the Earl of Darlington, is a candidate.
 
Mr. BROUGHAM was on Monday elected for Winchelsea, in room of Mr. Vane POWLETT, who is a candidate for Durham.
 
The celebrated bull, Comet, which was purchased in 1810 for 1000gs. lately died at Cleasby, near Darlington.
 
On Wednesday week, two men, proceeding to Morpeth market, were attacked in Benton-lane by two footpads, and robbed of £78.
 
A woman in Newcastle, aged 69, lately got two new front teeth.
 
ROBERTS, the bankrupt, under sentence of death in York castle, is to have his punishment commuted to two years' imprisonment in Wakefield house of correction.
 
The William, BOWDEN, of Whitehaven, is arrived at Virginia; and the Wilkinson, BELL, of the former port, at Greenock, from Jamaica.
 
The Royalist, ASHBRIDGE, of Maryport, is arrived at Lancaster from British America, fir timber; after a passage of one month.
 
The Minerva, JACKSON, of Whitehaven, bound to Quebeck, went on shore in Gaspy-Bay, in the gulph of St. Lawrence,—crew saved. By some accident the ship took fire and was burnt down to low water mark,—all that was saved from the wreck was 125 tons of goods.
 
In general, the Greenland Fishery has been very bad this year.

We are glad to observe, that the well-intentioned paragraph inserted in last week's paper, relative to the plan of the bridges, has excited a more than common interest amongst the inhabitants of this city and its vicinity.—What we at the time alluded to was, that there was, in the plan now executing upon, no passage for the cattle to go from the bridges upon the Sands, the common stand for the cattle-market. The importance of this subject may be understood in a very few words, when we state, that bargains to the amount of half a million of money are annually transacted there; and, therefore, the importance of affording sufficient facility to buyers and dealers is sufficiently apparent. Not only are the corporation interested—but the bankers, innkeepers, shopkeepers, and others of the place, who participate so largely in the benefit accruing from this species of traffic; and which must be altogether annihilated, and transferred to other places, in case that accommodations are not provided.—The agricultural interest would particularly suffer; for we understand from competent authority, that the land, in a circuit of four miles round Carlisle, would be lessened in value not less than one guinea an acre per annum.—Would not an inclined plane from the centre of the new bridge, declining towards the Sands, not only answer the salutary purpose, but relieve the disagreeable uniformity of a dead wall?
 
The subscriptions in this city for the benefit of the widows, orphans, and relatives of those brave men who have shed their blood at Waterloo, already amount to nearly £900 (see Adv.); and if the immense city of London can boast its thousands and tens of thousands, we can sit down and reckon that the pecuniary sacrifice of Carlisle, considering its extent, has been at least in equal proportion.—We trust—we confidently anticipate, that every town and village in the county will press forward, and, stretching out the right hand of beneficence, endeavour to dry up the tears of the distressed.
 
Mary JOHNSTON, a young woman, aged about 20, was on Wednesday committed to our gaol on a charge of robbing the dwelling-house of a poor woman residing at the head of Newtown, near this city, of divers articles of wearing apparel and of money, the particulars of which were lately related in this paper.—Mary o' th' Wood, for so the poor creature, who suffered from the depredation, is usually termed, accidentally met with the young woman in the neighbourhood of her tenement, and instantly recognized her dressed up in her ******* apparel. Mary immediately gave mouth, and though the young woman put the best spurs to her heels, the other was tough, and would not give in; so, after a race which afforded considerable diversion, Mary doft her clogs which rather encumbered her progress, and, though nearly 70 years of age, succeeded in coming up with and capturing her prize; who was finally remanded to the custody of a peace-officer, and thereafter to the common gaol, where she remains for further examination.—On searching her premises, we understand, that an immense quantity of plunder was found, the fruit of her successful industry in predatory warfare.
 
On Saturday, a young female, servant with a farmer at Garriestown, a few miles distant from this city, having had some dispute with her master, procured a phial of laudanum, which she drank, and so melancholily terminated her existence.
 
Whilst societies of every description for charitable, moral, and religions purposes, abound in this country, it were not to be expected that the state of the Jews would be neglected.—By the ***stance of public bodies and the exertions of individuals, this branch of God's people is daily re***ifying, and, it is to be hoped, will in due time, be grafted on the "good vine."—Amongst the strenuous advocates for the conversion of that ancient people may be reckoned the Rev. Charles SIMEON, Fellow of King's College, Cambridge, who preached a very animated discourse on Sunday evening to a large congregation in the parish church of St. Mary, Carlisle, from Proverbs xv. 26 27. His discourse Mr. S. divided into three general heads—1st, the duty and obligation of dispensing to the Jews those inestimable blessings we ourselves possess; since, 2dly, we are indebted to Moses, the law-giver of the Jewish people, for those ceremonial rites and figures (ordained by God) which were lively representations of that better sacrifice which was afterwards offered up.—3dly, Because we were indebted to the Prophets (Jews) for the many sublime predictions concerning the Messiah; and are consequently engaged to import to the Jews those blessings which were first derived from their zeal, and afterwards from that of the apostles of Christ.—In conclusion, Mr. S. observed, that great numbers of Jews were collecting and going to Palestine, expecting the Lord to come to his temple. In Poland, Germany, and England, their expectations were very great—a hundred families had lately reached Jerusalem, and more were about to follow.

Kate Hurst will give her talk - Read All About It: Making Use Of Old Newspapers -  by Zoom on Saturday 24th April at 2pm (BST).

Please contact Helen Conchar for more information and a link to the talk london@cumbriafhs.com

Below is a brief information about Kate:
I am a freelance family history researcher, based in East Lancashire, and my talks are inspired by both commissioned work (including a 2015 project for Who Do You Think You Are?) and personal research. I am most interested in the pre-1900 period. During the recent lockdowns, I have been working on new ideas for my YouTube channel, including a series on 1670s midwife Jane Sharp and an investigation into the family history resources mentioned in Jane Austen’s novel Pride and Prejudice

MELANCHOLY SHIPWRECKS.
----------
LOSS OF THE CLIFTON, OF WORKINGTON.

                                                                                 Sydney, Cape Breton, 20 May, 1815.
 
I am sorry to inform you of the loss of the Clifton. I left Chaleur Bay on the 21st November, and got on shore on the 25th about six P. M. 18 miles to the N. E. of Cape St. George, Newfoundland. The first stroke she gave knocked the rudder off, and we all got on shore in the afternoon, where we remained until the 28th, without any thing to eat or drink.
 
On that day it was more moderate, and we got on board again; got the boat ready, (and provisions) to look for inhabitants. It came on to blow very strong that night, and we had to remain on board till the 30th, when I thought it best to get all the provisions on shore, for fear the vessel should go to pieces.
 
On the 12th of December the mate and five hands took the boat, to seek inhabitants. On the 16th they returned, without finding any. At the same time William GILE [or GITE?] and William HAILWOOD, apprentices, went off unknown to me. I expect they would find inhabitants, as I have since been informed there are some at the head of St. George's Bay.
 
Finding it impossible to travel, and not knowing where to look for inhabitants, but thinking that St. Peter's Island would be the nearest inhabited place (and it being impossible for us to take provisions with us to last until we got there), I determined that we should go upon an allowance, and remain there until the Spring, expecting its commencement early in March; but in that I was mistaken.—We had a very severe winter; almost perished with hunger and cold!
 
We agreed to live on six ounces of beef a day.—We had very little bread (only about a cwt.) and it was wet. We had a very good stock of potatoes, but they too got wet in getting them on shore, and the greater part of them wasted by the frost. We had four potatoes a-piece served out, as long as they lasted, which was till the latter end of February.—On the 30th December the cook died; he was a native of Africa.
 
In the winter we got the long-boat decked, and on the 20th of April launched her down the ice. On the 23d, the ice broke, and the wind being fair, we made sail from our dreary abode. At eight o'clock got in between the ice, and stuck so fast that we could not get out. On the 24th, blowing very hard from the N. N. E. and snowing, the ice stove in two planks of the long-boat's bow. Fortunately having the jolly-boat with us, we all got into her. It became moderate in the course of an hour, and froze very hard.—It was one of the coldest nights I ever experienced. On the 25th, William HAYTON, Henry TODHUNTER, and William CROMPTON, died; the latter belonged to Newcastle.—The 26th, John DURHAM, of Whitehaven, and Thomas CHAPMAN, of Ulverston, carpenter, died.—The 27th, Joseph ATKINSON died, and on the 28th, John CANNON.—We were still on the ice and drifting out at sea.—On the 30th, drifting close past the Bird Islands, we hauled the boat up on a large island of ice. On the 3d of May, I am sorry to inform you, I buried Joseph LOW [?].—On the 5th in the morning, we were between St. Paul's Island and Cape Breton. The weather clearing up and the ice breaking, we got the jolly boat off, and pulled it towards Cape North. Finding we could not get within two miles of the shore for ice, we stood to the S. E. twenty miles round the ice, and landed the next night,—one man, a boy, and myself; the man being nearly exhausted. I got a fire on shore, having tinder and matches with me. As soon as I got warmed, I found great pain in my feet, J. MAKINSON, the same. The Bay being still full of ice, we could not reach any inhabitants. On the 12th Thomas WALLSTAFF, of Exeter, died. I kept him in the boat (to make use of); but fortunately the ice cleared away on the 14th, and we arrived here on the 15th!—Thus out of fourteen, only John MAKINSON (the boy) and myself are remaining. Our legs swell very much, but we expect to be better soon.—I am, &c.
 
                                                                                                THOMAS OSBORNE.
To Mr. John OSBORNE, Workington.
