We.do not know whin we have felt .so sickened as in reading it; and we areas hred by those who -heard. the case investigated, that the viva voce details of the cruelties were still more revolting. Who, ever Mr. and Mrs. Fri-yne may be we do not know; but we should say that afteit such an. e.rpose of their diabolical cru.elty, it would be adirisable fora them to Iremove to some locality where, they are not known. They are a dis grace to humanity, gnd ought to be scouted by all who have the least claim to be con sidere.l human. But we must not spend all our indignation on the wretched perpetrators. of this disgusting cruelty. The magistrates who heard and decided on the case have earned. a Iright to a shanre of it, We would willingly,: if we could, find some extenuation for them ; but we do not see how we can do so. T...
