On Monday while the Duke of Cumberland was out with Ida hounds, near Staines, the dogs traced the blood of a mnrthered man from the road to a ditch/ where the body was found, mangled in a fiiocking marner. He is fuppofed to have been one of four' foreigners, who were feen on the' Saturday preceding at Staines, where they flept at the White-Lion, and the deceafed had paid for thpm al;, appearing to be the bearer of a well-filled purie. From every enquiry that has been made, it clearly appears, that the three perfons who committed the murder upon the, body of the poor foreigner (who, it fcems,, was a Sardinian) on Sunday laft in Belfont-lane, were three pf his fnip-mates, viz. Anthony, a Venetian-Phararo,, a Genoefe-and Stephen, a Ruffian or Venetian--three feamen lately belonging to thef Crown Prince, a Swedifh (hip, that arrived at Portfmouth On Friday fe'nnight.

He was difcharged fhe preceding day, and had the day before fent five (hillings, and a prayer-book to his-filter.-It is mod probable that, owing to the weaknefs �f his head, the fall that occafioned his death occurred accidentally, as the contufioh upon'his forehead and his wrill are the only marks of violence found upon him. At the aflizes for Nerfolk, Thomas Jackfoh was found guilty of robbing the mail on the S'.h of January laft, and fentence of death was almoit immediately pafled upon him; John Beckett was convicted of the murder of Edward Allen ; James Cain and Royal King, were convicted of highway robberies ; William Smith, Henry Neale, and John Browne, of burglaries; was found guifty' of horfeftealing, -Grant of fhopbreaking.
