TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 27 October 1840
TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. Sir,-My letter has been favoured with your remarks. I have the satisfaction to see that the principles upon which it was written are admitted, but it is denied that those principles extend here. Upon this latter question I will leave your arguments as I find them. I will merely observe that it is probable that speculation may sometimes even affect the unruled market of Mark Lane. Upon other points I beg to bo allowed to reply, because I think some unjustly affect agriculturists as a body, and convey unmerited reproach. You state that there was an ample foreign demand for wheat at 13 shillings, 14 shillings, and 13 shillings, per bushel ; yet the growers kept it back, in the hope that it would rise above a guinea, &c. That some bave done so may be true. But if agriculturists as a body have done so, how have these foreign demands been supplied ? What ground for the Governor's minute to the Council, exulting in the immeuse increase on exports ? Do ...

ENGLISH NEWS. The Countby and the Chops.-For many rears we have not had a month of May so abundant in vernal charms as the present. From the warmth of April the trees are full of foliage, at a season when the leaves are scarcely bursting from their wintry envelopes, and the horse chesnuts are in flower, and equally rich in beauty and fragrance. In the orchards the blossoms of the apple and cherry trees are giving way as the fruit forms-falling, however, after having forved their purpose and leaving the promise of abundant crops. In the gardens peas are in blossom, joung potatoes are far advanced, and gooseberries «nil currants of considerable size. In the fields the wheat and spring corn are growing with almost un- exampled luxuriance, the clovers and meadow grasses ure full of vigour and freshness, and the pastures are thickly covered with herbage. In great numbers of places the field potatoes are some inches above found, and in one or two early spots the turnip plants are springin...

MURDER OF LORD WILLIAM RUSSELL. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 27 October 1840
MURDER OF LORD WILLIAM RUSSELL. Tus trial of Courvoisier for the murder of this aged nobleman, was concludetl at the Central Criminal lourt, London, on Saturday, the 20th June. Al an e5rly hour in the morning the applications for admis (ion to the court were numerous and urgent, and at jialf-past nine o'clock every seat was occupied. Tho bench was crowded with nobility, and it is supposed '«at there never was any trial at which so large a con . course of distinguished persons were present. We «ave not room to particularize, but we may mention «at there wore not less than twelve ladies of title, »Even earls, and eight lords on the bench. The case *as one of circumstantial evidence ; no eje saw the act committed, and although the circumstantial evidence *a» strong against the prisoner, it was not until the place where Courvoisier had deposited the plate was ("(covered that his conviction was considered as placed Myond a doubt ; indeed, so impressed were the pri- mer's friends with bis...

COURVOISIER'S CONFESSION OF GUILT. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 27 October 1840
COURVOISIER'S CONFESSION OF GUILT. After the verdict was returned a report was circu- lated that the prisoner had confessed to the murder, and upon inquiry we found that the rumour was cor- rect. It appeared that while the examinations were going on at the house of Lord William Russell in Norfolk-street, after the murder, the attention of Mr. Hobler, the solicitor for the prosecution, was called to the table-knives belonging- to his deceased lordship, and among them were four carving knives with Damascus blades and balance ivory handles. When Mr. Hobler saw the knives, they had all been fresh cleaned ; but on a close inspection of one of them, a largo carving knife, he discovered on the blade, near the handle, a rusty spot ; and, although this knife appeared to have been cleaned with the rest, the blade was much duller in appearance than the others. Mr. Hobler, upon a close examination, could not find any notch on the blade, but, from its general appearance, .he suspucted at ones th...
