Diiritig this time a gun was fired from the window, und siiorlly after a sailiSr,' numied Morrison, was carried up stiverely wounded. Saw u gun at the window, but not the person who fired it. (ieard the watchman Simpson desire them not lo fire, and saw him immediately full, hi consequence of a shot from the window. " John M'Furlane, shipmaster, Greenock, swore to llie affray on the tjlreet. Saw the suldiets lake their lire-arms at the higher window. The crowd made u rattling at the dour, and one man appr'ared first at the window, and fired up tlie close, A great many shots were KkmI, but he did not see nny tall. S4W only two pf thein Ure; one, be thinks, fired, very often. When any personhove iu sight," they asked, " who goes there ?" from Ihe window. and Siiid they had (ileri^ oiPVttntnuiiitioii.

Pi-arsnU died in less than an hour, declaring' that they aiitied'the shot at hiiB. John M'Corqudule swore to ;the riot, oti the street. The mob endeavoured to force; tlje door, iintt a allot was fired frmu the wiuduw abovet,(ie�r�r SiiujiJow say, Av�st firing; we ~nre all King's men ^ Wett|i!f i'voi."

Flora Mnir corrtsborated the preceding testimony as to the riot on the street, and said she saw t�o soldiers knocked down; then firingcomtneiiced,and witness saw a man lying bleeiliiig; she called to the soldier at the window to ceiise firiiii; till she took in the body ; he answered he would fire, whoever came; she retired, but ctme back and repeated the deiuaud, when he said, " Orat; him in then, and be d-il to you !" The wountlrd man wiis Simpson. Robert Robertson and John IVl'lntosh, sailors, swore that they were attacked by the soldiers os above stated.  Alexander Cochran-About seven o'clock on the 30th of July, Dempsey and Surrage took some whiskey, fls they' had three or four comrades with them; heard a disturbance on the streei, and the soldiers caine to the iloor which he hail shut, aiul demanded their lodgings ; Robertson was with them ; the mob was abusing them desperately. When they catiie iu, one of tliiMn ttruck Robertson three times on Ihe head witli a candlestick, and witness pulled him into his kitclieii; the crowd increased, and he was obliged to go ont of the window to call the guard. The (�uard turned back for their arms, and witness went alone to the hou�e, and told tite t^oldiers they were firjug on their own guard. There were three soldiers, one on each side of the wiudow'with muskets, and one behind them; Dempsey wa� one of them, but does nut know the other two. Darapsey said," You b--, I'll.blow your braiii'i out for bringing the guard !" The soldiers were all in blood when he looked into the room. The crowd attempted to break open the door, and called out against the bloody souls of the soldiers. The whole" of the window was smashed .Sarfage ami Dempsey lodged about a month -liiTVEe house, and lie never saw any tlirug but good behaviour before. No firing took place before the window was knocked iu, and the mob called for the bloody souls of Ihe soldiers; got ten half mntchkins that night; some were very drunk ; Dempsey was not very drunk. Serjeant lAl'Lurg, Andrew Colwtll, and Joseph Wooteii, confirmed their being called. Saw Dempsey and Surrag-e leaning out of the window. Surrage said,  Who goes there .'"' and was answered, *' The Serjeant of the guard." Dempsey desired them to fall back, and the- Serjeant said, " Dpi9|�' chwitig the soldiers iuto Cocliiai.'d honse, anl breaking the windows, and forcing the di'O' wlh I stone* or �tick�, .Saw and h^ard some filing fn>in the high window, but a voice called out * Txke carr," before the shots. Siw nobody fall. Th.^ window at which the stildiers were was broken ly sticks and rtoites before the firing commenced. Sir Win. VVilliani.s, Lieu�.-Culooel i.f the 13th, swore .Suh-age was always an exctilent sobi r man, and much'regarded by hit'Captain.

Menzies, for the Panels, made an able and ingetiious defence, which, however, we are constrained to omit. Alter the Lord Justice Cl-erk had summed up the evidence, the Jury returned a eieavoce verdic;, finding Beck I\'ut UuiUy, the indictment against Elliot and Lynch Ao/ Proven, and Surrage hidI Demsey (Jjiilly of the murder of SimpsOti ami Pearson oiily^ but unanimously recommended Surrage to mercy. The trial occupied eighteen hours and a half, and the Coon adjourned at half-past four on Wednesday morniug to ha If-past ten. For the Crown-the Lonl Advocate and J. A. Maconochie, Esq.; Agent, Adam Roland, E q. W. S.-For the Prisoners, Wm. Mensies, Esq. ; joint Agents, William Balfour and Robeit Cliai--mers, E�qrs. W.S. The Court accordiuf^ly met at half-past ten o'clrcit on Wednesduy, when (ieorge Carscallion was brought to ihe bar, uccused of assaulting, on the highway leading ficia Ayton to Dunbar, on the liih cf August last, William Dobsou, liho'irer ai Sliil  boltle, in Northumberland, and robbing him if a silver watch, a hat, two one pnuinl not-s, and ISs. ill silver. The Panel pleaded iluilty to the charge before tlie Courtand Jury, and, after a suitable aii-monition, was senienced to transportation for life. John Dempsey atui Hubert Surrage were ll-eii brought to the bar to receive sentence. The verdict of the Jury having been read. Lord GuLlES said it now became the duiy of their Lordships lo gfve effect to the impartial verdict which had been pronounced by mi atteiiiive and intelligent Jury, against the very otifortuiiate Prisoners at the bar. Be fell liimieif bound lo say, that a fairer or more equal trial he liati never v�i-nessed, and that the Panels had been mo^t ably defended. He conceived and suggested that the verdict of the Jury hid left no alternative in tlie breasts of the Court, but they must f.-ithfully administer the full penalty which the law, bolii human and divine, has denounced ug4insl the crimu pf which the Panels had been found guilty; am', with the most painful feeling'', he hid to propose, that the Prisoners be taken from ihe bar lo t!ia place from whence they came, and be e.ti-cuted in the maiiiier which the law prtscribe.", ou Wednesday, the 13th day of December next. Participating in the regret which his Learned U.otlirrs, and all humane persons must feel, that sucii a solemn example should be nnavoidable, he trustee*, while it would serve to convince the miliiaiy in pai-ticuUr, that the weapons which ihey wore w'ne ii>-truiled lo them for the defence, and nut for tli-; destruction of their peaceable fellow-cilizen?, it would also demonstrate to the other classts Uit Majesty's subject.", that the law and tlie ailuimis-Iralinii of the law are even-handed : ;ind ih.ii it would serve as a warning lo uti clas-^es of men, not to indulge a rancorous spirit, and not to surrender their belter feelings to the indiscriminate and uii-coiitrollable fury of a lumuliuous iiidigiialioii. Lord PiTMll.i.y never had addressed liieir Lordships under deeper or more acute sufi" rinjj tlun u;i the present occasion; but it could net fail lo b� satii-factory lo the l^meli themselves, conservative of the law of the couniry, and impoitiint to ti a comfort of us all, that in this or any uiher Crimin-I Court never did Counsel, Jury, and eveiy peisun bound lo interfere, conduct themselves with rnoie ability and propriety than has been exemplified by all the parlies concerned in this trial. TheJuiy have-hown throughout this case an attention that reflects 011 them ihe highest credit. The verflict was the only one that could Ir.ive been pioi.ouiicrd without dangtr to the country. It was luipos.ible to suppose that the peace of a garriaou town coulJ ever be preserved if such an ou rage and vitleuce us had been proved against the Panels were lo pas* unpunisiied ; and the sentence named was the only one in their Lorclships' powtrto puss upon ihe a..-fortunate Panels at the bar. The Lord Jostice Ct.EiiK,- Prisoners at the bar, it is with the most unfeigned reluctance, ( assure yuu, llial the Court feel lliemsrives con-slrained to perform the present most painful dmy. You have been convicted by the verdict uf a ino-t intelligeiil,^ patient, and altentive Ju'y uf countrymen, of a wilful, anjuslifialjie, and Ininoui murder. It is fjr, very fur from my inlenliuii or wiyh lo aggravate llie puigiion'y if that lllst^^^s which I perceive at tliis moment pnssiiig nio-.t heavily upon your hearts ; but it is my duty to ^tate. lo you, as 1 8tal�d this iiiorniuK, that the uiiditTd-ble verdict of a Jury lias placed you in a si uatioii which forbids you to repose with conliiience oa the mercy of any earthly-tribunal, and tliat your only reasonable hope inn�l depend on y.iur luikiiig your peace wiih the divine J udge of all the woiUl, to w^huin, 1 tiust, siiictrtly, you luve already directed your supplications. With the eiiicerrsl be-liel in the iinporlunce of the coiiMlleritiou to the Prisoners at the bar, in reconciling tlicm to ihe juatice of the senieuce which has been ulr; ady cou- ;
