Mr. . BlightAvas a ship.bieaker at Greenland Dpckyinthe parish of Mary's, Jiotherhithe. . The sister of the prisoner, Sarah Patch, was ? menial seYvaintin his hoase; a hpuse-maiU, a kind of-mald'of ail �^ork. In the spring, 1803, Mr. Patch, then in circumstances of much, distress, with rags on his shoulders ahdpemtry in his face, first appeared at the huusc of . Mr. Blight's on a visit to his sister. . His story was, that he had left tha West of Eng. lafid frOiTi circualstances which it is ne<jdle6S to de. tail; that he was without employtrienti.atvt virss willing to etigage in the service of Mr. KUght on any tefms. Mr. Blight benevolently, enoagh engaged him. He was to receive his vicliials and drink and a sainry of 30I. p�r annuni. At this time be was greatly distressed, as I have told youi and I.wish you to keep this circomstance in your-minds.- Shortly afterwards the term of their engagements were: coriimujcd into a fixed sa;ijry of lobl. per annum, which Mr. Putch \s as to receive, and to boaj.l �hiinselfl ' Such, Gentlemen, was the first introiluftion of th; prisoner into the house of Mr. Blight. Some tim* after Mr. Blight became embarrass^^ and. called a meeting of his creditors ; a compOjitioo wasentereil into, and tfce pnsoner was a chief instrument in th-s traiisni^?on'. .One creditor, however, did not consent to accept the offered'terni.s; the . consequence was, as a\�c daily see in the bankriipt cases, (hat the whole 'tr, of Mr. Blight with his other creditors wa.s invalid. His prapcttyj ihereforc was in danger; and in order to secure it, he does, cannot, indeed, ho called lionest, buc which, I a-r. sorry CO say, is freqncncly the only refuge of emb;:r- � � rassed men, agtlnst. i^iprudent and o'pdurate c-edi- " tors.' � 'In-order 'to protcfuthittiiclf and defeat their cliims, he makes over to Patch, for a sura of 2000), all his property without reserve. This conveyance was in the ordinary way, by a bill of (-arcel.s, receipts, &c. to which was added a letter in t.he name ef Blight, to the Sjliciior of "certain lands, hoUkii of the City of London, requesting to have the lease renewed in Piitch's name. The,intention of Blight by this, conveyance, Av;ts, as you m:iy suppose, 10 protcdl his propeny ; and certainly not tb convey it to Mr.Patch. Thu-i he iiri?ued, "r^rlyittg on -the confide;:ccof my bosom friend, Mr. Patch, I know if my creditors step forward to seize iny piopcrty, that he.will acias my fticnl, and^-jcure it faf me; again, should they'll ic proceed harshly against me, those pajiers are in tlie possession of my wife, and are sj much waste paper." ^ '1 .'.us Mr. Blight may be supposed fa have argtied. Mr.-Patch,, as you may imagine, Gentlenieny-nc. ver paid one shilling of this tlioueand pounds;- I question at that iin;o whether he hyd^s m.iny pence. Tnis,-however^ is foreign frotn my present* in-quiry. You now, Gentlemen, see how Mr.Patch has grown in the confidence iif M--. Blight, In two years {for the. transaction of which i vuas speakiii^ was in i S05) he has been enabled fo jjain the friendsiiip of his master, and-to he advanced to a degree of trust which is nefer reposed in a man of whom we do not think most highly. In Jtify jSc-, Blight and his family made 9 Sumnitr trijvto TvJar, gale. I am now approaching the season iii which the guilt of the Prisoner will be seen to draw mo-t strongly upon us jin which we sh.ill trace his first mo.'ives, and so evidently.detcil -every step of hi^ guilt, thai if wc follow him v.'tth a cilm, cbser'vinv-, and dispassionate judgment, we shall 'treajl "in the very, track he. has taken. 'Previous to Mr; H.'s journey to Margate, bethought innccesSSry to enter into new engagements with Mr. Patch,- -For .liirn. self, therefore, he stipulates, that-he shptrfd retire, the prisoner to conduct the' business, and to have one third of its profits ; but' fo* thiis s:harehe wis to pay the sum of izfp!.. Nowi'Gentlednen, hoA-was.this msney to: be obtaineii ?.*vGould it be supposed that A rtan-who, hvo yean, since, presenttii himself a'uhc door of Blight.-in 'higs and' penury, ami who had scarcely received a/^alary, sine* niis ^d-m'jsirin there, m6re than equal to his support, .-ind How could he ondeniike to do itf Wlrai his  resources ?
