TRIAL OF MAJOR VaUTWKIGHT, Mli. fVOOLER, AND OTHERS. WARWICK ASSIZES, Thursday, Acq. 3. THE KING O. MAJOR CABTWRIQHT. WOOI.Ea, &C. This case, which has excited sowueb.puhlic interest, came on this day before the CriCV BAkOH and a Special Jury. From an early hour every gallery and bench within the Court House was occupied, and a jreal number of ladies and families of distiaclion were present. � About nine, the CniEr Bakon entered the Court, accom. ItaHiedas usual by Ihe Sheritf, and look his place on the Bench. The Defendants loon afterwards made llieir appear, ance, and Ihe venerable Major was' accommodated with a seat amongst Ihe BarrisUra. Amoii'gst those present we no. liced^Mr. WiHiams,M.P.^ Mr. ^r�i!be Palmer, M.P., both of whom accompanied the Defendnnta'into Court, and sat by them. Almost upht the moment when fbe case for Ibe pro. seculion was dosed, ttldDefeadanla hadotot decided upon the precise line of defeuce �hicb tliey ahonM ndopl. The Special J atf poetswBa'4l;eii called f�r, bratiun nf Ihe facts w'^^^ 'hj; had uieiiiiuiied, ami, be rusted, that when the sl�teM|^pliW4viirl to provide accommoitaliiui fochini amongst the Bar. rislers; and be alleged il vaa utecessary to him �� a De-feudant to be iu a place Where be conid lake miuuus uf what passi-d. The CllIKr Baron said, that niuch as be wished to extend iiiilulgeiice io Defendauts, o^d much as he cunsiilercil Ihe anxiety they should feel, stitl:he.culd not help thinking the present request fur displaciits Ihe t^uusel a little uii- reasiiiiable.' Mr.-^Vooler intimated lhat he might be allotted a seat without much iuruminuding .these Geutlrmen ; hur4ie did not press the matirr further fiiirlh^ prraeul, aud aat down again in lhe�ilualinn heuccupieil before. Mr. Denman now said, tbatbehad the affiilavit to which be alluded. , The afUduvit being read by the.Clerk staled, lhat Mr, Charles Pearson, the depoueol,,, un cnmiug to Warwick, learned, with sume surprise, that Mr. Peech, a siiecial juror in tills cause, had never receiiied iiaummouB al'all to attend, with a view, as deponent believ�d,,V>f ^ejudicing the Defend, ant's cause. Sir. PrarsOii. immediately wrote In Mr. Peech, . and wriil to.his house, which was 15 miles from Norwich; aud aiioiber deponriil, named Simmuiis, delivered Ibe let. ler. An answer was rrceivrd froai^ ,Mr.. Peech, stating that he had rrcrived no anionMpp (o alieod as a Special Juror in this cause at the;.pretenl .Assizes, aud thai in consequence he would uot g({.e hIaaiietHiauce..

He said he would call at six in Ihe moruiug. Witness saw Sir. P. there with a chaise the inorn. ing before, and he had a letter, as he believed, fruiu Major Cartwrighl. Croti-txamintd-Sirs. Peech said her husband had gut summonses, but she did not say in what cause. The name of the King and Cartwrighl was never meniioned. Sir. Pearsun only said lie kuew Mr. Ptech had gut summonses, not '.� servant, (hat he knew of such a letter. Never saw Mr. Peech before in his life. When witness said he knew of Mr. Peech having received sommonses befure, he meant in other causes, not this. Sir. Lee was agaiu called to know whether a separate summons had been issued to Sir. Peech for this cause, or if ihe cause was only meniioned amongst others upuu which he was to attend. The witness could recoiled nothing but having not denied that Mr, Peech had had summonses, but not in this case. By law Ihe Defendants had an undoubted right to a Jury, not only'of 13 men, bul of 24 good and lawful men, able aud ubiiged by law to serve, uul of whom a proper Jury might be formed. Of Ibis number only four were forthcoming-of Ibe rest, Ihe law had dealt fairly with tlie parlies; il had dune all il could to bring them here, bul there' was one who was not asked to coma at all. The neglect was then in Ihe Slinister, whose duly il was lu further the admiuistratiau of justice; but- it was not the Defendants', who ought nut to be prejudiced by it. lu a case in Easier Term, 1819, tried in liie Exclieqnrr, that of the King �. Goodman, the positiou was affirmed that a party b^d a right to 24 able men to Serve upon iu peisun,' iu order that the Defendant might suggest all objrcliuiis which .would occur Io him, maiiiy of which might fii've aristu after Ihe service uf Ihe summoiis-many after he dud come into Court.

The �aine ilurlrine was Utd iluwii mure forcibly in a recent case in the KiUi^'a lleiH'h, llIr. Wuol.r for himself urged the same uhjertion. Hej sialid the cuudiict of-Ihe Marirr uf the Crown Office, reprehensible as he painted it to be io his uwu case, whirlr had been first nienlii>iied. At first this officer contenicit. hiinneif with using adiKcrelionury puwerof stribiiiguHt what iiauies be pleased, but when a bsi of strangers was presented III hiui, ineu, whom he did nut ^"ow, he biddy asserted his right lu pack a Jury aud make one of his own chuice. lie (>lr.

It was ruled, that the Sfaster might use tiis di whom you ought to address them. I cannot Judge, and caunot alter what has beeu duue iu the Court of Kiog'sl Bench. Sir, Wooler-My Lord, yon are Judge here, and may control-- ^ . CrngSLBAStmnriUy dat]^at^illdg& at KUi Print 4� hmiled and well defined. Mr. AVonler-I was using Ibis as part of my argument, lu show Ihe grooiids upon which I challenge Ihe array. We arc charged with a conspiracy against Ihe Goverument ; I was preparing to show the conspiracy uf Government again;! ns. If I establish this conspiracy against us, surely yuur Lordship will make an order- Chief Baron-I have before said, I can^make no order Sir. Wouler-Your Lurdship might very safely say that Ihe circumstances were such ynu felt yuurself ubiiged to malte an alle�atiun ill the Jury. Chief BabW-If 1 were to do so I should he impeach'd. Sir. Wooler Vaid, bis argument was nearly at an ead, ihoii|^h after what fell from the Court, he saw little hopes of surcfss; yet would he perscuere, to shew that if he was persecuted, it wuuld not be in the dark. He would sum up his argoinenls by saying, lhat after the Slasler nf Ibe Crown Office had struck the Grand Jury out of the array, then there remained bnl 56 names out of which to choose 4SI. His duty, therefore, could not be to select from a larger number a smaller une ; but by leaving out a few names, lu have the whole Paii-nel without selection. He concluded by entering his protesl against the proceeding, and reducing* the challenge to the Jury in writing. The Chief Baron overruled the objectioa, and desired Ihe trial to proceed. The Jurors were then again cilled, but still there were ? only four specials in attendance. Talesmen were put into requisition, and uut of a great number of uames, the following answered :- John Hughes Edw. Shuttleworth James Leakia John Burman Thomas Salt I, Burmao. John Worhrrry Benjamin Huglies When Ihe book was handed to the Foreman, previous to being sworn. Sir. Wooler, rising up, said, " Will yon give me leave tu ask you one qeslioo?" Chief Baron-If you stateyour question I will put it. Mr. Wooler-Has Ihe Gentleman ever given or expressed any opiaion upuu the merits or demerits of this caee? Chief Baron-That, I think, he is nut obliged tu answer. The Juror, of his own accord, disclaimed having given any. Tlie same question was put to the other Jurors; but by command of the Court, they declined giving auyaoawer. Mr. Hughes, a talaman, was aboal to be sworn; Mr. Wooler-Pray, Mr. Hughes, will you indulge me in an answer to my question ? Chief Baron-Yes, I Ihink aa Mr. Hughes is notaSpecial Juror, he may answer. Mr. Wooler-Have you ever given any opiuion upon Ihe mi rils or demerits of this case? Juror-I have not. By Mr. Lewis-What profession are you ? Chief Baron-The Gentleman roust not answer that qncsliun. John Burman, the next Juror was asked the same question ; bnl hesitating to reply.- Sir. Wuoler said, 1 object to the Juryman, on account ofj bis incapacity, Mr. Clarke to the Juror-Have you �id at any lime whether these Uefeudants were or were nut guilty ? Sir. Wouler-Sir, ibatwas not my quesliuii to tkeGeat^e-; man. Sir. Clarke-I endeavoured Io give Ihe subslaare of it. Sir. Wooler_.My words were intelligibleruuugb. To an ordinary uuderslaudiog they would* have cuoveyed my. meaning. Sir. Clarke-Sir, you forget to whom you address this language. Sir, Wooler-If I have spoken improperly I ant open �o the correction of the L,earned Judge. Sir, Clarke-My Lord shall decide, Tlie Juror disclaimed having given any opinion. Mr. Lewis-Do you undenland Ibe quealiou? Chief Baron-Mr. Lewii, you must be mote od joor guard. 1 runsider Ihe obsetvatiun, uithandsome and im* proper. Sir. Wuulrr's meaning waa very .iatrlligible.
