The mowtl assembled to tvitness the awful cp.emony was very great, and at an early hour the different streets were thronged by persons of every description. (enlle and Head were about 30 years of age, and were convicted the Sessions befor^Iast of a robbery in the Hwelling-hotise of ftlr. Morllock, china-dealer, of Oxford-slreet. Read was formerly warehouseman lo Wr. Moitlock, but wa� discharged for acts of dis-honesty; becomi ng dittressed, he proposed to Gentle to rob llie bouse of Mr. Mortlock, to which he (Gentle) consented, and packed up Ihe property which Read look away at night after the fa-oiily retired to rest. By these means Read kept an auction mart, and used to supply the nobility and gentry with valuable property, which was Mr. IVIoit> lock's. Gentle shared the money, and had received about 80/. in this way, 75/. of which was in a Saving Bank, in the name of a young woman to whom Gentle wai to be married the ilay after the dincoytry of the robbery. During their examination at Msrlborough-street, the young woman and the pii-soiier were absorbed in grief. 7'. Eaton, T. Hunt, and J. Hughes, were tried 00 eight indicl'menls, for robberies on the Harrow road during the autumn. On the first it appeared that they stopped a Mr. Parking, who was going towards Sunbury-he was overtaken by four men who robbed him of his watch, &c. Lack and other oflficers were placed ou the fltrrow road in conne-quence of the many robberies, and on the 30th of September liie Prisoners were stopped. Hunt and Elton pulled out two pistols but were secured. On Eaton a knife was found, which Mr. Parking idea-tilled: they were acquitted, the witness not being able to sweai^ to their peraons. They were'then tried anil convicted for robbing �. Berlin, Esq. Surgeon to the Duke de Cazes, of a gold walch, I6/. ids, iu money, and other attic les. Mr. C was stopped in a gig on the Harrow road by three men 5 one held the horse's head, while the other two got into the chaise, and with loaded pistols presented lo bis head, they rifled him of the above property. He identified the culprits, and a handkerchief found on Hunt. They were again convicted for robbing Mr, Pike on the highway, upon conclusive evidence, Martin Feely was a soldier of the 51st regiment. On the iiigiit of l|-.e 14ih of October last, four men entered the cottage of a poor old man at Hampton Court; the family were in bed, but were alarmed, One of them said, he came for blunt " and would have that, or their lives. They rummaged the place, using dreadful threats, and when they came to the old man's bed-room, he was with his wife. On his assuring then] he had no money, the Prisoner, who appeared to be the leader, handed a piece of rope lo another, and desired him to tie it round the old .--'s neck. This the ruffian held till the poor old man was nearly strangled -they robbed the place of 5/. The moon shone bright, and reflected on the Prisoner, who was im-medialelv recognized the day after at the guardroom. The Seijeant proved that he was absent from his quarters about the eame hour, C. (Goodwill was convicted of a robbery at a house in North-street, Peutonville, which he entered under pretence of altering tl/s bell. The Officers, on searching his place, found stolen property to the atnouiit of several huncJred pounds, amongst which the articles stolen from the above house. The Prisoner's wife was tijed and acquilted. On leaving Court they were fallowed to a house in Iroiigniduger-row, where a lijrg'e. party hatl met to celebrate the acquitlal, and they found the Convict, who made a desperate resistance. Hichard Scott was convicted for burglary, and stabbing a Watchman in Dean-street, Soho. t'eeley was brought into the press-yard first, he was a tall desperate looking man; he was very pious, and listened to the advice of the Clergyman. [Je took off his soldier's jacket, and requested to have another garment, that he might not disgrace the army by being hung in their Ax^n, T. Ejton, T. Hunt, and J, Hughes, were next brought ill, Eaton immediately fell on his knees and commenced prajiug, they had their irons knocked ctf separately, aud were then conducted to the corner of the yard. Charles (ioodwin followed^ and had bis irons knockeil off; they were all very fervent in their devotions, aud the above joined iu swinging psalms and repeatedly offering up ejaculatieiis whilst the others were having their irons taken off. Scott, a good looking youth, was then brought into the press-yard; he was praying as be came in, and appeared very dejected, but firm ; while they we're knocking off his iroiis he was repeating " Lord have mercy on me-Christ have mercy on me !" And his appearance and conduct caused a deep iu-tereit and sorrow, (ientle and head vere the last bropght in, and nn lerwetit the 'same form. They then joined in singing psalms, and the procession, consisting of Sheriffs Waithmaii, Williams, and the other officers, proceeded to the place of execution, aud the bell of .St. Sepulchre's began tolling; it w�� b very awful sight to witness the unhappy.calpritfi walking to thair doom iu the pr^me of life. Ou their arrival at tlie iloor oppasit which the scaffold was erected^ they were joined by tbttr spiritual advisers in prayer, vihjia they were sejiarately coudocted to the plaifonm, ia^j^re thie rnpirt were adj usted round iJieiT neckSj dati% whiiih ceftftnony t}>ey.again joined ill. t^iMi^i^ On the whole Wtog Bdjusted, Mr. Coitoii gaVe the signaH and the on-fqrtttoate men were Uuuafied their souls to the veiled labyrintlis of eternity. They were buried on the I51I1 inst. followed by a Concourse of nearly 500 people. 'Squire Higby was about 45 years of age, iVlr.
