Last week we gave some particnlar^ of the trial of. this Prisoner, for the murder of his wile, which terminated in bl^<:onvict!Oji, and he -received sentence-of death, which sentence was to have been carried into eAect on Monday last. It may be pro-{ler here to stale the eftect of the evidence given upoulhe trial. The deceased was found lyin^ dead in the kitchen early in the morning of the 97th of June. There were a..; great many bruises ondiRe* rent, parts of her: body, and two wounds on he^ bead, bm noneof those bruises-or wounds were, in the opinion.of tiie,surgeaii, the cause oFher death, which was produced by the rupture of a blood ves--selon the bnun/, in other words', by apopleity, either produced'by intoxicalion, or -.^byj� fall or blow; It was- the decided^ opinion'the surgeon, after the efTusioB of blood had taken.:ptace, the deceased could uot posstbly liave come^Iqwit, stairs:^ it followed thei�fore that the.mortal blow urfalh must havebeetiTecetved in the kitchen, and it was the ioferen�e-0fJaiyi from- the facis-^jiroVed, that tbePrisoner, having begun to ill-treat hi�wifeup stairs, had followed her into the kitchen, and there had giVQu her the blow which lii(d produced her death, - - The^facfs to support tJiiU inference were the following :-The deceased was heard to - cry out "Murder !" in her lodglng^rooin, in which'there were..onty herself and her husiband : drapsnf blood were traced- all .the. way. froin the lodging-room-to the kitchen, and bloody footsteps were visible on the kitchen floor, as if a person- with bloody feet had :been walking about; To these faets are to be added-the brutal exclamation of the Prisoner when the.death of his. wife was , communicated to him. There was also auiextreme improbability in th^ account which Oldfield gave.ot tlie matter, as it was barely possible thatthe noundsand briuses discovered oli circumstaiice8 many persons 4houghtit'hat the Jury,'tni&iding the; Prisoner guilty �)f mti�/*r,.hajl comei^ the\^iludjge jwliov t/ie3',the.
