The points to which the Jury would have to direct Iheir alteiilinn were, lbs illegalily of the meeting, and the conduct of the Defendants. It.faad been said on Ibe partuf the Defendanls, that, numbers alone did. nut render a meeting illegal.

If some jleTsdns'wicnt'iirmett In the meeting ill iUc'exptcia-lion of attack, and "d'eiermined lo make resistnnce, Ihey would be acting illegoflf;' and any person wlio aaw :thrm there, and remained'afterwards, would also be acUng illegally.

With respect to Ihe terror which. llie meeting was calciilsted Iq excite, he thought it would be one of immediate danger; but if the Jury would think the danger from Ihe ineeling was remote, or only uf 4 fixture rising', Ihey would give a s|m-cial verdict lo Iba^ effect, as his mind was not perfectly made up as to that bring Ihe kind of terror which would render ihe meeting illegal. He had no hesitation is saying, ^hat a meeting ou the subject of bringing persons who had comniilted crimes to justice wasnhgjl one, hut, silling there, he did not judicially knoyv who those were who had committed crimes such as had been alluded to. Until he had judicial knowledge of the proceedings al the Manchester meeting, he could give no opinion of il. They niijlit be perfectly innocent who caused its dispersion, or Ihey might be guilty. He could not now decipreh�^de4..o.>) . In Ibey were firs*! to consider wlieiher'tbeniefetttagwascalcuhiled to excite terroi',ft-om the people being fjaraisbed with sticks and staresj^considering lliat Ibe woinea were habited iu mourning, and that the staves were mounted with crape; aud if they were of opinion that terror was excited, then all Ihe people who saw these things, aod still remained, were guilty uf being present at an unlawful meetingj and especially those who were active partisans. If, however, Ibey were of opinion that these appearances were not calcnialed lo excite alarm, then tbey were to consider whether the people having pistols, and pikes were not likely lo excite terror, and, if so, then their verdict should apply to such of the Defendants as saw them, anil upon this point Ihe evidence was much stronger against Dewfaurst and Broadliurst lhan any of the other Defendants. Tliey were next to consider whellier the inscriptions and drawings on Ibe flags were calculated lo excite sedition and dissffecfion; and, if so, Dewhurst and BruadliursI saw them, and afterwards remained to lake a part in the proceedings, then they were gnilly. Lastly,' they were lo icousider whether Ihey had had an accurate account of Ihe speeches and resolutions given to them by the witnesses for the prosecution ; and if Ihey bad, and Ibey thought them calculated lo excite disaffection in his Majesty's subjects,.then those w^o littered them, or remained to saiicliuii t.hem by holding up their bands, are guilty ; but he heggeil to say, that if the Jury eaterlaineilany ihittbl un either uf these points, or as to the participatiutt nf the Defendants, then it would be their duly to acquit Ihe Defendants!. The Jury retired, and, afler consnlling together fur about twenty minutes, returned with a verdict uf-Guilty against all the Prisoners, itxcept those tiro (Wade and Asten) as to whom Ibe prosecution had been grven up. It was remarked that the verdict was a general one; though Air. Raiue, in his reply, bad give up Ibe counts which referred to the ebarge of conspiracy. It was, however, understood in Cdnrt as nut applying to that charge. Mr. Justice Batley was about to pass sentence, when Knight requested tn be allowed to say a few words in miti-gaiiun. His Lordship said lie would give him and fhe oilier Defendanls lill to-morrow morning lb prepare any afiidavits, or any statements for that purpose. ACQUITTAL OF itlCHARD OWEN. Richard Ovsn ikrasflcxt fui to the bar, charged with wilful and corrupt peijury, iu haviiMrsworu at the New Bailey, in August last, be saw Alourhouse on tlie hustings in company with Hunt ou Ihe day uf the meeting uf the Idlb. He was given i.n charge to Ihe Jury; and Air. C.

The Court adjourned at half-pasl six, till nine u'cioek to- JiWT JN GLASUOIV. .

We noderf>tat:d also, that, in reference to the King's intention of improving Uartmoor Fsrtest, he had many communications, and a personal interview, with Sir Thomas Tyrwhitt, who expressed himself anxioitM to have Highlanders, and offered very favourable terms; and that Mr. Monro, apprehensive that the proposal fur removal would not be so favonr^ibly received from himself or bis factor, employefll ii highly respectable and popniar clergyman, to coni> municate with the people on the subject; so iliac it appears the indifference to tjie future provision and welfare of the people, which has been ascribed to this gentleinan, is far from well-founded. We are happy in being able to do justice to a charBc-ter which, in as far as it h-as been yet unfolded, gives promise that on this, and every other occasion, he will act with feeling and liberality.-/'irt-vernest Jountcl./ � �"" - - - INCENDIARY. ATTEMPT TO BURN HEREFORD COLLEGE. In our Journal of the aad ultimo we stated the total destruction of the College stables in this ciiy. by fire, and it is with the deepest regret we have now to record a most diabolical attempt to set tire to Ihe College where the Vicars Choral of nur Cathedral reside. On Sonday last, before Ihe conclusion of Divine Service at the Cathedral, Mr. Hayter, the organist, who has rooms iu the College, had occasion to leave the church, which adjoius the premises, and in proceeding to his apartment, heper-ceTved smoke issuing from the roof of tbe;eiir'td aii8ist�nce, which the judicious ext^tmns uf Mr. Hayter rortuna,tely rendered, unnece^ry, as the flames were happily subdued before the engiaea arrived. It is a most sioguUr circumstHiiue, auii clearly proves that when the smoke was. first discovered the diabolical incendiary must have been superintending his. evil work,!thut the builerof the College, who hitstenetl lo render assistaiict! ou-the first alarm, found iiear the spot on fire a-Floreuce oil-flwtjc, which evidentiy Itad oootuiaeti turpeiKine; aad afterwards when, the fire wassiitppresBsd, on. searching ipt it, the flask Avas.tliscovrr^ in au old cask in a hole under tlie .stairs,,near Ah�) place; the,wretch n^osi i.lverefoye have escafiedw^ilst Mr, Uayieraod tbftjhutlerwerei (>rocuruig:WiUer,' and ejterjy circom-stUQCe, prove^.rtlwt wii9eiiefii.sse�sed.;^f 4afing aodhwfuJwd'cmini^ng eq-aal to the .h0rti,bl�.^criaj.e Jjte att^Bvptedl/tapetpettate, Il i�,iiUoirBm�rJra,lJle, thi>t;ttttlMiM�ofeiv.jf�e'i,t}f the ,j|ptti.aHii^ri.b,�;d..i�U :t|ie-j>vt>ll> JB Eogltsh^lmrac- I � rl___.L- ..L--.1 111 ;
