He loved bis bride almost to distraction ; but, from the very first night of their marriage, he entertained strong suspicions that she had,deceived bun, and was no1 a spinster. He questioned her ; but the answers were far from removing his doubts. He became almost mad with rage, and, in arno j ment of extreme ^violence, gave her a blow in the stomach. "Ah ! wretcbVexelaiined the youngwoman, '* ¡¡au have killed mj child." The husband appeared thunderstruck at this in- formation, and on the following day the physician, wa1- called in, and he was qf opinion that the young woman had bec-n in the family way for several months.

Bigamy Extraordinary. A fellow, named Josiah Thornton, has just been commited   to the Castle for trial at the next Assizes. On the 11th of this month (July), he solemnly promised at the alter, in the parish church of Matlock, in Derbyshire, "to take to wife" Miss Anna Knowles, and "to keep only unto her so long as they   both shall live ; but, regardless of his vows, immediately after the consummation of the nuptials, this gay Lothario fled him   off to Manchester, and being unable to resist the spells of the Lancashire witches, on the 13th he again intermarried (as the lawyers say) with one Miss Anna Pearson, contrary to the statute in that case made and provided, but as "love and a crown no rivalship will bear, the fair forsaken "Maid of   Derby" and her friends quickly traced the fugitive into Ches- hire, in the fastnesses in the vicinity of Stockport, where he was apprehended, taken before Captain Humphreys, and fully com- mit...

English News. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 18 December 1829

English News.           After the close of the last Old Bailey Sessions a circumstance occurred which offers a striking instance of the little effect produced apon the minds of criminals at large by the infliction of bodily pain, as a punishment upon culprits in the hands of Justice. Several convicts, during the sessions, were sentenced to be publicly flogged. After the sessions had terminated the sentence of the law was put into full execution before a large crowd, who appeared much affected by the sight of the severe sufferings of the culprits. When the scene   was closed the executioner left the yard where he had perfor- med his office, and he went over to a public house (the Bell) in the Old Bailey, whither he was followed by a number from the crowd. One or two of those who had witnessed the example just exhibited, seeing in opportunity, while the people of the place were occupied, got up stairs and ro...

" There, is not in the world a greater error than that which fools are so apt to fall into, and knaves with good reason to   encourage, the mistaking- a satirist for a libeller; whereas to a true satirist nothing is so odious as a libeller; for the same reason as to a man truly virtuous, nothing is so hateful as a hypocrite."--Pope. ' Those, who are only acquainted with Van Diemen's Land, by having resided at either of its two principal towns, have little idea of its real pretensions to be considered, a rich or valuable country.
