Menzies, for the Panels, made an able and ingetiious defence, which, however, we are constrained to omit.

The Court accordiuf^ly met at half-past ten o'clrcit on Wednesduy, when (ieorge Carscallion was brought to ihe bar, uccused of assaulting, on the highway leading ficia Ayton to Dunbar, on the liih cf August last, William Dobsou, liho'irer ai Sliil  boltle, in Northumberland, and robbing him if a silver watch, a hat, two one pnuinl not-s, and ISs. ill silver. The Panel pleaded iluilty to the charge before tlie Courtand Jury, and, after a suitable aii-monition, was senienced to transportation for life. John Dempsey atui Hubert Surrage were ll-eii brought to the bar to receive sentence. The verdict of the Jury having been read. Lord GuLlES said it now became the duiy of their Lordships lo gfve effect to the impartial verdict which had been pronounced by mi atteiiiive and intelligent Jury, against the very otifortuiiate Prisoners at the bar. Be fell liimieif bound lo say, that a fairer or more equal trial he liati never v�i-nessed, and that the Panels had been mo^t ably defended. He conceived and suggested that the verdict of the Jury hid left no alternative in tlie breasts of the Court, but they must f.-ithfully administer the full penalty which the law, bolii human and divine, has denounced ug4insl the crimu pf which the Panels had been found guilty; am', with the most painful feeling'', he hid to propose, that the Prisoners be taken from ihe bar lo t!ia place from whence they came, and be e.ti-cuted in the maiiiier which the law prtscribe.", ou Wednesday, the 13th day of December next. Participating in the regret which his Learned U.otlirrs, and all humane persons must feel, that sucii a solemn example should be nnavoidable, he trustee*, while it would serve to convince the miliiaiy in pai-ticuUr, that the weapons which ihey wore w'ne ii>-truiled lo them for the defence, and nut for tli-; destruction of their peaceable fellow-cilizen?, it would also demonstrate to the other classts Uit Majesty's subject.", that the law and tlie ailuimis-Iralinii of the law are even-handed : ;ind ih.ii it would serve as a warning lo uti clas-^es of men, not to indulge a rancorous spirit, and not to surrender their belter feelings to the indiscriminate and uii-coiitrollable fury of a lumuliuous iiidigiialioii. Lord PiTMll.i.y never had addressed liieir Lordships under deeper or more acute sufi" rinjj tlun u;i the present occasion; but it could net fail lo b� satii-factory lo the l^meli themselves, conservative of the law of the couniry, and impoitiint to ti a comfort of us all, that in this or any uiher Crimin-I Court never did Counsel, Jury, and eveiy peisun bound lo interfere, conduct themselves with rnoie ability and propriety than has been exemplified by all the parlies concerned in this trial. TheJuiy have-hown throughout this case an attention that reflects 011 them ihe highest credit. The verflict was the only one that could Ir.ive been pioi.ouiicrd without dangtr to the country. It was luipos.ible to suppose that the peace of a garriaou town coulJ ever be preserved if such an ou rage and vitleuce us had been proved against the Panels were lo pas* unpunisiied ; and the sentence named was the only one in their Lorclships' powtrto puss upon ihe a..-fortunate Panels at the bar. The Lord Jostice Ct.EiiK,- Prisoners at the bar, it is with the most unfeigned reluctance, ( assure yuu, llial the Court feel lliemsrives con-slrained to perform the present most painful dmy.
