The following is the continuation of Dr. Morrison's examination:- She also said Capt. Kelly wishes me to write to Aldecman Kelly, but 1 think I should not, do you ? I said No; and'. In reply to my inquiry, she said Bhe thought Captain Kelly was Alderman Kelly's cousin. She also said Dr. Clutter-hucfc wished her. to write to tlie Alderman; Mr. Richards also talked of my marrying Alderman Kelly.. I said Would you allow Alderman Kelly - or any other person to do what Mr. Newton did alter marriage P and she said Certainly not. I asked her what that would be in a married woman, and she said adultery; I asked her if any other person asked her to marry before.Mr. Newton did; she said Yes, a Mr. Hording, who drew her mother's picture,'but it Was all for her money; a Mr. Beechey also asked her; she thought her mother would have allowed her to marry him, but she did not like him. Mr. Howell wanted to marry her, and wrote a letter to her; her mother said she might marry him in six ot seven years; she did not like him, and she thought that was too long to wait, as she should then be quite an old maid. I said you like Mr. Newton then,? and she replied Yes. She then said my mother used me very roughly after taking me away from him. Referring again to the subject of money, she said I know very little ahout it; my mother never gave me any, and I never saw her pay any away. Ishewed her a sovereign, a shilling, and a sixpence, and asked her what was the yellow piece of money ? She said it was a sovereign. I asked her if it had another name, and she said a guinea. She knew the names of the shilling and sixpence, but said Bhe did not know how many pence they contained. She said, she thought she could learn the value of money, and also arithmetic. She complained of labouring under illness peculiar to her sex, and said she was.alarmed at the examination she was io undergo, and expressed a hope they would not make her out a fool. She said she had been threatened with consumption some years ago, and asked if tight stays were bad for her; I told her I thought they were bad for Ihe chest, and she said she should grow out of .shape if the did.not.wear them. I asked her if she was in the habit of drinking wine; she said she was, and asked .if it was right to take it; 1 replied Yes, a little, much would affect your head, and make you unable to answer questions. I said I understood Dr. Haslam asked her if she wished to' be defended by a lawyer or Counsel, and her reply was, what could they do ? I said they could say for her in Court what she probably could not say herself, and her reply was, No, I don't wish it. What is your reason, .1 said; and she said, because it would look as if I did not understand, or could not answer myself. During the whole of this interview, which lasted about two hours, we were alone; and she several times looked at the door, and said, Don't speak so loud, adding, I don't think I have told anybody so much as I have told you. Mr. Commissioner Coltman: From the interview you have had with this lady, what is your opinion of her capacity? Witness : I'am of opinion she is net of unsound mind, and that her ignorance of many things proceeds rather from defect of education than a want ef capacity. ' Cross-examined by Mr. Pollock: My practice Is general, but my attention has been directed to the subject of insanity eflate years, and I have written two works on the subject. I am physician to the Surrey Lunatfc House, and consulting physician to the Middlesex Lunatic Asylum. I received my instructions to attend from a gentleman named Whits. Dr. Haslam had seen her before the appointment was made, and I saw htm before I saw Miss Bagster. I went to her with ray mind quite a blank, prepared to find her what Dr. Sutherland said. I had a conversation with Dr. Haslam, but he did not give me an opinion, nor did I receive directions from him. She is a little deaf, and In that respect is only different to other young ladies. I did not ob. serve the slightest disposition to laugh without cause; our conversation was of a serious nature. She smiled when she said it' was too long to wait for Mr. Howell, but never laughed out. She had not the unmeaning laugh and titter of those who are weak in their mind. The statements she' made I believe to be true,: believing her to be a reasonable creature, and that she would; not deceive me. . My judgment. was founded on the truth of these statements, and the manner of the lady. I believe,; from her own account, that Alderman Kelly had been making; love to her. I do not think that the governesses had fallen upon the proper mode of instructing her, and I would under-, take in six months to teach her arithmetic, and the use of money. She has began to think now, and her mind is more opened than it wbb a year ago, and I think, if pains were taken with her she might be instructed. She can write her name,' and great pains appear to have been taken to give her that instruction. Mr. Pollock: What can she do well ? Witness: I think she can manage a plot very well. The very first action of her life-that of running away, I think, she managed very dextrously. She made the appointment, id kept to it. Examination resumed: She is not deficitnt in the powers of perception, memory, or judgment, so as to render her of unsound mind. Such a communication as she has been re-presented to have made to Captain Kelly was very indecent aDd strange; but, In my opinion, not inconsistent with sanity. I think that the occurrences since the 21st of April, coupled with the repeated conversations with the medical men on those indelicate subjects, have so lessened tier sense pf mo-de'sty as to account for it. AND THURSDAY EVENING, July 12, 1832, Cross-examined by Mr. Follett: A deficiency of education will account for aVVthe appearances I observed in, MIbs Bagster; her incompetency to manage her affairs arises not from unsoundness of mind, hut from igno. ran'ce. I have no hesitation in saying that she is capable of instruction go as io. manage ber affairs. The indulgence of; the grandfather, and conduct of the mother towards her,' and the frequent change of her'teachers, were calculated to produce the effect wc how gee. Juror: Do you think,, from the state of her mind, that if she wa�:to commit a felony or murder, she would be exempt from the law of the country ? Witness^:;;! think she would not be exempt, because I think she Is:a responsible agent. She has this proof of soundness of mind, that she is sensible of the deficiencies under which she laboUrs-a lent of non-insanity is a sonsciousness of deficiency.;; Juror t. Did you ever see her In either of those fits when she tore h.er clothes?  No. Juwr.i*'yhefi|p$ttce pot able to judge whether in one of those fits she Is a moral agent,' - '-'.-    - .. '�' Witness\ From'the, description given to me of those fits'of passion,! should, say. she is liable to any injury she might commit in one of those-fitsof passion. Juror: Supposing, without any provocation, in one of those fits of paBSion, she threw a knife at a person, and killed a person, would a Jury be justified in finding her guilty of murder? . Witness: Certainly, I should think she Was guilty of murder.. Dr. Roots examined: I examined Miss Bagster on the 25th and 26th of June, at the desire of Mr. White, from the office. of Messrs. Adlington, Gregory,. and Faulkner, When introduced into the room,' I found a lady whom I understood to be Miss Bagster. She received me with great courtesey, and on my observing that she must be greatly harassed .with the enquiries of so many medical men, she said No, she was not. She said she had heard the object of my viBit from Dr. Haslam. She said she had been a day boarder ataschoolat Hammersmith fur three years, and for sometime had a.governess at home. She said she understood French, and read it, but could not speak it. I en. quired in French her .age; she replied in English, 21. Observing she had a watch, I enquired the hour in French, and she answered in French correctly; she said she had been taught music and drawing, but could not play on any instrument, and did not like music; she said she could draw flowers, but not in colours, and declined civilly to shew me any of her performances; she said she had been taught cyphering by a master, who came twice a week, but she added, she never could make anything of it. Without any question on my part, she said she could dance very well, and was very fond of it. She also said she was partial to reading, particularly novels and history. She said she had read Fitzallan and the Student of Salamanca. I asked her if she had read any of Sir Walter Scott's, and she said, Yes, she thought she had read V>averley; she said she had read Guy Mannering, and-seen it three times at the Theatre. She also said she had read the Bride of Lammermuir. I asked her the name of the hero, and she sal J, the Master of Ravenswsod. I tried her memory oh this point, and she recollected another of the'/leading characters. She said she thought she had read some (>f Cooper's American novels. She said she w3s in the habit of going tp church, and read the Bible. I asked her if she liked the Old or the New Testament best, and she said she liked the Old Testament the best. I asked her if she knew who was supposed to have written the book of Exollus ; she .appeared to con aider, and said she could not "till. T asked'her who Moses was, and she'Baid he' was. a shepherd and'a priest. As she said she' read the New Testament, I asked ber if shetriew who wrote the Gospel according" to St. John,' and she said No. The same answer she gave when I asked her ifshe knew who Wrote the Gospel Of St. Mark. ' I asked ber if shehabyanyprdpefty,arid she said" Yes/aha that it-was j given to her by her grandfather; but she did hot know whether it was funded or landed property, and did not kriow its amount, as she had never inquired; but said she must soon. T asked her if it was in land, how she could make it available to derive money from it, arid she said by the land- I lords paying me at different times. I then endeavoured in a short way to explain to her the nature of funded property, and asked if she had 10,0001. in the Four per Cents, what ought to be her income," and Bhe said 1001. per annum. I asked her if she had only 1001. to live upon, what would she do; she said she would take a house larger than Alderman Kelly's, at the west end of the town;' she said she would furnish it handsomely, stylishly, and fashionably, but . not finely, and would keep, a footman, a groom, a coachman, a housekeeper, and a lady's maid. Isaidshe had forgotten a very necessary part of the household, a cook; and she said, Oh yes, a cook. I asked her if she) could defray all those expenses on 1001. a year, and she said Yes." I asked if she could keep a carriage, and she said she feared not; I asked her why then keep a coachman, and she said she should like to have a coachman; she said she would give her lady's maid 301. a year,- and about 201. to each of the other six servants. The whole of the sala-ries of the servants and the household expenses she was sure she could pay out of the 1001. a year. She said she knew the coins of (he country, but was unable to state how many shillings were in a sovereign, and when i asked how many.pence were in a shilling, she said 20. She could not state how many halfpence there were in a penny, and said that there were three farthings in a penny. He repeated questions of this sort, but did not obtain satisfactory replies; and she said, 1 fear I am very stupid, and could never do anything of this kind. I put down four figures under each other, 9, 6, 7, 4, which she added up, and the result she made was, 221,814, but added, she feared it was wrong. I put down the same figures on another piece of paper, and endeavoured to explain to her, and the result was, 573,024. ' The further examination of Dr. Roots was ordered to proceed to-moTrow (this morning), and the Court adjourned. A specimen of Aliss Bagster's handwriting was exhibited in Court. It was her name, written in a clear, bold, and handsome style, and evidently written by a person who had received a most superior education. ROLLS' COURT, July 11. meyers v. channom. The plaintiff and defendant in this case were the wives of a person named Meyers, who, being entitled to a sum of money in tlie Funds, in 1802 committed a felony, for which he was sentenced to be transported for seven years. The fund, by law, became the property of the Lord Mayor and Aldermen of the City of London, in consequence of the con viction. They assigned their interest over to the Sheriffs, who gave up ail claim in favour of Meyers, by deed, in (he year 1814, to which the Sheriffs of London were parties. Meyers gave this fund to trustees, for the benefit of the defendant, his second wife, and her children. The plaintiff (the first wife), by whom he had only one child, and with whom Meyers had long ceased to live, insisted that she was entitled to the fund, that Meyers had been deceived into his second marriage by the falsehood of his brother in law, who had told him the plaintiff was long since dead. The principal point in the case was the competency of Meyers to execute the deed in question. . His Honour thought enough was now before the Court to enable it to decide that point, and Ordered the cose to stand over for a few days.     .__ COURT OF COMMON PLEAS, July 11. . stephens v. toplis. This was an action brought by the plaintiff, a tailor, residing in Jewin-street, against the defendant, a surveyor to the Sun Fire, and other public offices, a highly respectable auctioneer, in St. Paul's Church-yard, to recover damages for certain defamatory wotds spoken by him, of and concerning the plaintiff, whereby he alleged he had sustained injury in. his business, &c Mr. Serjeant Andrews appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr. Serjeant Wilde for the defendant. It appeared from the evidence that a fire broke out in the house of the plaintiff, in Jewin-street, Aldersgate, in the earlier part of 1831, by which*means his stock of woollen goods and cloth were consumed. The pliiutifF, who had previously insured in the Atlas, applied to the Insurance Office for the amount of tlie loss which he said he had sustained in consequence of ,the fire, and the defendant (Mr. Toplis) was employed by tlie Directors of tbff Atlas to investigate the particulars of the plaintiff's claim, and in this capacity, speaking of the fire, observed that " it was a very black sfTnir," The defen- dant hid also advised the" Oi^t^ri to resist th* payment Of the amount claimed, inconseqiierice of several suspicious circumstances which he'bail tyiqugltt.it his duty to point put. 751. of it was,, however, paid, ana the present action[arose put "of the remarks which Mr.. Toplls.had been compelled to mike, in pursuing the panful'"enquiry for which he was retained by the Atlas'CpmpSwyi^-'  For the plaintiff 'a caseyMj^jj^eaut Andrews called ! Mr. Collins, of the Atlas, ^hs Insurance Office, who proved that the plaintiff claimed IKl.   He received 751. Mr. Watt, Secretary.  Mayoyf, the Excise solicitor, frem ttie evidence of Excise officers who had dis- J covered the illegal factory, and secured the defendant' on the premises where the illicit traffic was going on. The defendant at..the tirne was taken before me Magistrates for the offence, and adjudged'.to pay the; usual pebatty of 301., but refusing, or being Unable to do so, he was'sent to prison for three months, and was then in gaol. | The Commissioners, after commenting on the oft repeated and continued frauds oh the revenue, by means of private Stills, condemned the still, apparatus, &c, to the use of Ihe Crown, and mitigated the penalty to 001. \ William Belli was convicted' of having unlawfully in his possession.,ph the lfith' of March last, at No. 5, Salt street, Spitalfieids,' a quantity of plain spirit, upon which the duty had not been paid. The Commissioners condemned the liquor seised. |    .COURT OF KING'S, BENCH, July 11. '' OEEEli .V. BOEBES,'. '. [ This was an action brought by the plaintiff, as assignee of .the defendant's" father, who was a bankrupt, to recover Certain sums advanced by the bankrupt :to the..pre�enV defendant. j Sir J. Scarlett appeared for the plaintiff.. Jlr. Holden (the father) was a partner of a house in the city, carrying on business as West India brokers. In. 1831 they became bankrupt, having-, previously supported their, credit for a' considerable time, by obtaining loane to a very large amount. They failed for the sum of seventy thousand pounds, of .which sum Mr. Holden was debtor in more than one-half. 'After... the bankruptcy the creditors having made inquiry, Ifppnd; that a considerable part of the debts consisted of 'sums advanced to the defendant, and thus it was that jthe present action had arisen. The defendant is an officer jin the'"Dragoon Guards, and had been so since .his eighteenth year. He was allowed ascertain sum by his :father .to'meet his expenses, but he exceeded his allowances, .and drew bills on the house for several thousand pounds, which were accepted by them, and this action was now brought to recover the money thus paid towards his expenses. It appears that Mrs. Holden, defendant's mother, has a freehold estate of considerable value, and money in the .funds to a large amount, which on her death must come to the defendant. The defendant does not appear in the books of the house as a debtor, the father having put ail down to his own debt. The question now was, first,'.whether, the .money paid to the son was to be'considered as a gift or a loan ? or, secondly, whether the father in his circumstances had iany rights to make such gifts 1 \ After Sir James Scarlett had stated his case, on its appearing that the'defendant's' name did not appear in the : books as a debtor to the house, and: there being no proof that the sums in question had been advanced as a loan, the plaintiff was, under the direction of the Judge, nonsuited. IRELAND. Dublin, July 9.--Mr. Thomas Reynolds was arrested this morning, and brought before the Magistrates, at the Head Police Office, on a charge vsimilar to that preferred against the, Messrs. Currait. Mr. Reynolds having .given'bail, himself in 5001., and two sureties 'in 2501. each, to abide his trial,-was discharged. It is said that a vsarrant has been issued for the ap. prehension of Mr. Marcus CoBtello, who is at present employed, professionally, in the county of Wicklow. Three persona, whose names we have not heard, have been arrested on. a charge of intimidating a mower from making hay at Buhernabreena.   ..-.'. The Attorney General goes down to Trim.to-morrow, to prosecute a man name Fatrell, for (it is reported) the part- taken by him in a recent tithe-meeting.  The following Cirtular has been addressed to the Irish-Magistracy: " Dublin Castle, 5th July, 1832. " Numerous violations of the law relating to unlawful assemblies having recently occurred, his Excellency ihe Lord Lieutenant has deemed it expedient, with reference |to the Circular Letters addressed to the Magistrates of Ireland in December, 1830, by the Right Hon. E, G. Stanley; and in February, 1831, by me, to direct me to offer some remarks and suggestions which are: considered applicable to, the subject. "An extensive confederacy has been formed for the purpose of resisting, or rendering abortive, all legal remedies for the,recovery pf tithes. Whether the. means employed for the accomplishment of these objects he actual violence or intimidation, it cannot be-doubted that they are illegal, and that the most prompt and effectual measures should be adopted to counteract and suppress them. " I have therefore to recal your attention to this.subject, and io remind you that the assembling of bodies of persons, which from their general appearance,; and accompanying cir. cumstances, are ..calculated, to excite terror and alarm, are criminal and unlawful. You cannot fail to obaerve how directly this description applies to meetings whose vast num hers, sudden and concerted formation, demonstrate the exist, ence of a previous conspiracy, seeking to attain its ends by the exhibition and array of great physical force, and the in. timidation which it is calculated to inspire. The conduct and demeanour of the persons thus collected, the sounding of horns, and shouting, the display of flags, boughs, and other embtamB, the expressions of determination to frustrate the law, and threats against those who refuse to associate wi.h them, clearly characterise these meetings as inconsistent with the good order and tranquillity which it is the object of the law to ensure. From the same criminal source have arisen the erection of mounds and signals, and other means of excitement, which are so frequently and so successfully prac llsed. " You will furtlier observe, that meetings convened for strictly legal purposes may, notwithstanding, be so conducted as to acquire the character of illegal assemblies. Should it appear Io you questionable, on occasions of this kind, whe ther the law liai been violated, your most prudent course will be to cause the persons Who have taken an active part in the proceedings to be identified, to have informations sworn, detailing the particulars of their conduct, and uf that of the other persons assembled, and to transmit them to the Chief Secretary, or me, for the purpose of being submitted to the Law Officers of the Crown. " A recurrence of meetings, bearing such unequivocal marks of illegality as have been described, will render it incumbent upon Magistrates to exert all the powers with which the luw invests them, to suppress the mischief, and bring the guilty to punishment. " Their efforts for (his important purpose will receive from his Majesty's Government the utmost assistance and support. 1 have the honour to be, " Your most obedient humble servant, " William Gosset."

We regret to state that a letter from Count Villa Flor, of the 26th of Jurje, received in London, mentions the death of the Condedi Calbary, eldest son of Ihe Marquis of Palmella, which took place on the 21st of June. This estimable young man was educated in England, and greatly distinguished himself at the London University. Singular Affair -A few days ago, a young woman, named Mary Armstrong, of Cockermouth, dress-maker, made the following singular statement before the Magistrate*, of that town, which she avers to be true, but refuses tci swear or sign.   She stated that having agreed to be married to a man of the name of John Martin, of Hatton, in Em-blelon, they left that place together on horseback, about one o'clock on Thursday morning, the 28th June, at the request of Martin, for the purpose of going to Bassenthwaite, where an uncle of his resided, and with whom it was intended she should remain until the Saturday, tbe day fixed fur their marriage.   On reaching the centre of Ouze bridge, Manin pretended the girth of the saddle was broken, and ihai it was necessary to dismount in ordir to adjust it; but after a feiy moments spont in  a pretended adjustment of the saddle, he seized the girl by the legs, and instantly hurried her over Ihe bridge into the water.   The man then instantly remounted the horse, and galloped off on hin return'.   The height down which the girl was precipitated is not less than twenty feet; and the water being-rather high, she was carried some distance down the river.   She remained abnit five minutes in tlie water, when she succeeded in reaching the bank.   What adds to the atrocity of the affair, is the fact of the young Woman having been at the lime pregnant by (he man. This is the statement made by the girl, to which, however, she will not swear, although she believes the mai{ intended to drown her.  Martin's friends have endeavoured to get the affair hushed up by joining the parlies in marriage ; and what renders the thing still more extraordinary, the girl herself is so little loth, that the banns were actually published in Cockermouth church on Sunday last!    Martin lias, however, since been twice examined before the Magistrates; but as the young woman will not sign her previous declaration, both have been committed to the House of Correction until Monday next, when they will again be brought up.-[Carlisle Journal.) On Tuesday morning, about ten o'clock, a sailing barge was proceeding up the river, the lide running,up strongly at the time, and as it was about to pass under London Bridge it struck against one of the starlings of the old one, which was partially concealed by the water, with 6Uch force that the side was stove in, and she sunk instantly. There were three men on the deck at the lime, who saved themselves by jumping on the ruins ol the old bridge. The bargemen and others who work on the river complain greatly of the dangers to which they are constantly exposed in passing these ruins. Alleged Murder.-Yesterday morning, a man ;.f the name of Thomas Whitfield, was taken to the stalion-house, Little Vine-street, Piccadilly, on ihe charge of having causeS the death of a woman named Catherine Knight, with whom he cohabited. It appears that the man, who is a breeches-maker, lived at No. 1, Little Vine-street, and that they had both been in a beastly slate of. intoxication during the last week. On Saturday night they had a quarrel, wht a he received some severe ill-usage from him. Sunday night the quarrel was repeated, since which tlie deceased has been in a.lingering slate, and continued constantly to decline, wtun she died yesterday morning about three o'clock. Dr. Walki-r* of Eagle-place, Piccadilly, attended, and was present i her death. He was too late to rendi-r her any ussistauie. On examining the body it exhibhed a dreadful appearance, there being a variety of bruises upon different parts of it. Air. Clement, inspector of police, in whose custody ihe man has been placed, has been most active in his inquiries.
