Jol^n Knou-!c3 was put to the bar, chart;ed wilh bavinjf maniiiaciiirrd pike-head EWIIUJ�5T, a.VJ) fix OTHERS. The Couri met (his morning at nine o'clock, noon after which Juhu Snifiht, f7eort;c Dcu;, Nalfian Brnntf* liursf, John .4rf'imiton, (KiV/tawi Fletcher, John Burp, Jithii yisliii, anil./fjmct if rule, were put to (be bir, and (he iu-dicimim hcinc; read to them, they severally pleaded-S'ut CuHlii. iMr. LiTTLED.VT.E stated the nature of the indirttnent to the Jury, w-lueh contained -21 counts; the suba(a::ce of which was, that the Prisoners had conspired to {jo, and cause others of the liegc subjects of the late Kinf; to t;o, armed (.) a nieetinir f,,r the purpose of binderint; and obstructiii;; the Ma;;i = trates and Peace Officers in Ihe execution of their duties. It �l.�o charged (hem with aasembiinfr an unlawful meeting, aitnod with aworda, ptke9, Hlaveg, fire-arms, SiC. and of attendine at the same, to Ihe terror of the liejte subjects of the late KitilJ, on tne ItJlh November last, at Haher-gan Eaves, in (hecoiinlyof Lancaster. Mr. ScAHLKiT stated the case to the Jury. He said he should not enter into any ex(raneniia matter to shew that the olij'.-eis of those who coiiveued the nieetinc ivere unlawful, or '.hat they intended to adopt proceedings difteient from what they professed. It-wonlii be quite sufficient for his purpose lo rely on the circumstance that the people went to this rnieiiu^ armed. That circumstance alone was ignite fiiifiiL-tent to couaiilule it an unlawful meetinjf, whatever inijjht be its avowed or intended object. He then proceeded to Ktalc (he evidence he slionlil adduce to fix ihe several De-fenrlaiils with tiie conspiracy charged ill the indictment. The first witness called vras � ^ W. Chafrei-, examined by Mr Raiwe-He s(3(ed that he was a constable of Burnley; that a irutice of meeting had been placarded for the 8ih of November, but il was after-uards advertised for ihe 15lU; lhal in Ihc forenoon of tlial d.(y large p.irtiea arrived nt Burnley; preceiled by music with banners, and proceeded Ihroufrh ihe town, to the place of inceliii;;, irhi re hiisliiig-s wereerecletl for the speakers ; that us Ihey were pissine throu-jh the town, Colonel Harfjreaves, who was ou horseback', da-.hed among the crowd,''aiul seized a slalf � hich .appeared to h.-ive been prepared for a pikc-handle, and bi-uughl it away without opposition. He supposed the numbers assembled to amount to 3,000 or 4,U00. 'I'lieic were !S dies and three caps of liberiy. Crires-pxamiued by M r. Williams-He noticed several of the inscriptions on the flags: ou one was Keep w-ithin compass;" another was " ()i dec, otderl" Some of (hem appeared (o be reliffious motlos,- such as " A false balance is an abomination lo the Lord, but a-jast vyeighl is bia de-liKht." Richard Fletcher staled, lhal be was in company with a man named Wilson ; he saw several of the people with slaves, and oil their arriving a( Ihe ground they picked out (he dirt from the holes .which were made to receive the-pike-beajs. He saw st-veral persoiH with pike-heads secreteil under their coal-sleeve.s, and in their hreasts. He iiiuiiedialely left the field to iiiforin Ihe Manisiritlrs. He retllrned soon after, and heard'n cry, "llie 8i>tdier� avecoming," Whereiipoii a number ofjjeople pulled oiit their, anil iln>ny of llieni tixed tlieiii in Ib� poles. He saw dixly iier�ons pull out their pikes;, but only eig-liliur tsii Hi; tlirni. He stisu si^w liveuty other persona -iit . slinuld puss any i;agj;ing bills the reformers should rise and meet oil one d.i^." He said if they tlid not " he should call them Ihe grealeal Hlavesinpon earth." Cruss-exaniiiieil by iMi-. Coi.TMA.i-He stated that be ai.plied lo difl'erent pi ople to purchase pikeV^fi-r the Burnley meeting. He adinirled that he had a pist^il. which i be had shownlo din'>-rru( persons, and had boast, d that he , was wflt armed ; and would not sivcar that he had not d-d , the Governinrni, aitdwinhed the liefoiiuers'w-ere.all aa well \ armed as he was ; WiiliaiB Wilson said lhal, hc,5vaB a reed-maker, and lived ' at Burnley ; and after slating the circumstaiicrs ileiailei' by ; t4ie Ja>l. wfljiej;9. be went en lo give a more delailed ucroniil -of Knight's speech, and rt-preseiifW hira To ha-ve-said, Ihat-'j if 'he Manchester Magtalrates were not hronehl lo jnstice, (here was an end of all gootl government,, and the people had a ri;hl to destroy such a gov<rnmeii(, or make a new I one, or to return lo a state of uatore, and live wiihont ,.nr ; | and he pro[Kise neither of which were produced. ! Mr, Sanji Howarlh,a surgeon, residing at Btirnley, slated ; Ihat he weni to the meeting, and was there .when an alarm was given about (he soldiers, and then saw one pisdil, hut no pikes. He did not observe any thing paittcular in Ihc ; spetch of Knight ; and all that he cuul.l say in respect lo I Uewhursl was, Ihat be i-cc.-mmei;deil a snbscripliun lo be i entered into lo purchase new-spapera, and that llie proceed- ' iijgs in Parliament should be closely watched. He had some i recollection lhal il was proposed, lliat^ if Pai liament did not 1 redress their wronss, there should be a general lising ; Ihruughout the kingdom; but this he could nut stute with j cert&inly. That many of them bad sticks, such aa they iniikt I have picked up on their way. There was nothing in the � appeaianecof the people, or in Ihe proceedings of the d.iy, ; that struck him with any apprehensions of immediate dan. i ger, although he considered it might afterwards lead lo � serious conse.qoenres. , Henry Bury and John Walton corroborated Ihe evidence � of Fletcher and \Vilson as lo (he pikes and pike slaves ; and ; Bury added, that a party of kefijrroersj ou their return i home, discharged "as niauy as 100 pistols; he could not say ' what number of pistol.", but he Iieard liial number of shots in different directions. Christopher Edmoiidson slated, that he saw Colonel Har-greavcs seize as^tick before-menlioued ; and al thai moment saw one of ihc'rteformers, with a pistol in bis hand, looking at the Colonel, and asked one of his companioos, ^ Shall I sboul f" His compani'oi answered " No, ynu must not;" when he relumed Ihc pistol into bis poekel. Several olher witutsses were then examined, corroborating [ Ihc testimony of the former witnesses as to the character of the meeting, after w-hirb, Mary Hoyle was called, who positivdy swore that Wsile was the man who poiiKed the pisiols at Colonel Haegrcav.v, j as described by the wiiness Edntonilson. On f i-ossexaminalion, she slated that she was distantly related to \Vade'fl wife, and that he (Hade) was not living with her as he ought loilo; and without wailing for the qncslion to be put lo her, she aJded, " i have bad no foul or angry language with him." John Carter proved lhal he saw the man draw the uisiul and look at the Colonel, but neither of the Piisoners was llie man ; that he knew Wade before the 15th .N'ovemuer, and if he had been the man he must have kn'^wn him. -A woman, named Hanson, proved thai she saw the re- \ formcrsafter the meeting was over, several of them beiiiiig | pike-BlaJTs like urahretla? : i'llc also stated ihat she saw in a ; public boose a pike-stafl", half a yard lo�g, which a man carried in a leather sheath ; it was sharp on both aides like a razor; ibescrew was four inches long. The Prosecutors now produced the placards which an-noivnced the meeting, and also the staB'seized by Colonel Harzreaves. Here the case for Ihe prosecution closed. Shifrtly after four o'clock Mr. WitxIA^s rose 3�d address, j ed the Jury for Ihe Defendants, in an admirable and impres- � sive speech, whicii occupied upwards of two hours iu the de- j livery. The Learned Counsel ob.served, that by ibecusioin \ and laws of Ihis realm, delivered lo us by our ancestors, it j was the undoubted right and privilege of Englishmen to as- j seniblc together for the purpose of petitioning Parliameul for ' a redress of grievances. T he law had imposed no limit in re-sped of numbers, and no assembly of Ihe people, however uii-iiieroos, could be-prononnctd illegal on that account. The os-leiisible object for which the nicciing in question was convened clearly a legal one; and if Ibe Jury should be convinced, from the evidence, lhal some individuals niie.lii have come to Ihe meeting secietly armed, yet, thai cttcutnslaiice could be brought home lo the kiiow--ledge of the Defendants," they could nut be HlTccted by &uch a circnmstance. It funned no part of the original design of the persona who assembled on ihi.s occa.^imi thai any part of them should come armed; and theiefore Ibe isolated fact, that a number of persons coining lo the meeting with arnis, to be used, as appeared, solely for (heir own defence, could nol render the meeting illegal. .Mr 'iVil-liains dwelt with great force on the circuiiislar.ce that not one oflhe Defendants had been brought istoforce with an) of ihe j ' persons who werearmrd, nor wa� there any evidence lo prove j that any one oflhe Defendaols was acquainled wiih the eir- | cumsfance uf there being any arms whatever nt the tneel.-hg. i With respect to the charge of the conspiracy, the Learned 1 Counsel observed, there had nut appeared a single iota uf cvi- 1 deuce lo prove its existence. The prosrcutor lial] not even j shewn Ihat any two of the Defendants had ever Seen each other j before the loth Nov., when lliey met on the iiusliogs. Greal ; siresg liad been laid on the fad thai some persons had gone to | the meeting with arm.s : admit ling thai to be (he lat(, he maiu-laiircd (hat it was the nndoohled right of Eitglishineii lo carry arms in sclf-defeuc^. It was so I uil down by iVtr. Jofitii e Blackstone (3 passage from whoseCoiilmentnriesthe Learned | Counsel read.) It wao evideiil, from the whole cooducl of j the persons so armed, that Iheir only object w�� self-defence, which was exeinplifte-d by llieir foibehrance w-ht ii the . slair wan seized hy Colonel Williams, and also by the Uil . that Ihry ooly nltempted preparalinn al moment') whni , the alarm waa givsn lhal Ihc soldiers were coming lo ailaelc Ihem; and could it be wondered lhal these persons sliouid j liave prepared tliemselven ailli weapons uf setf-defeii(;e, reciiHecting the Iransaclionf! of lli^.
