BLAIR'S GOTJT AND RHEUMATIC PILLS . Another extraordinary Cure of Rheumatism , from Lincolnshire , covtmunicated by Mr . Hall , Book seller , Gainsborough .
SECONDARIES' COURT , Fanuy , Mabch 6 . ( Before Mr . Secondary Potter and a Common Jury . ) Mr . Phillips , who appeared for the plaintiff , said tha-i his client , Daniel Sudbury , ins a general agent , residing in Southwark ; and the defendant , John Wooltorton , was an ironmonger , and a man of some property , earning on bnsiness in the Blackfriarsroad , and residing in Nelson-square . The action was brought to recover damages for the seduction of the plaintiff ' s wife ; and he must admit that , from the instructions famished to him , ( Mr . Phillips ) he scarcely ever remembered a , case in which he had been supplied with such meagre materials . The defendant , however , had admitted his guilt of adultery upon the record , and it would therefore be the duty of the jury to say what amount of damages the plaintiff was entitled to , by reason of the loss of
the affections and comfort of his wife . He ( the Learned Counsel ) had understood that the plaintiff and his wife had lived happ ily together , np " to the month of August last , when they separated , in consequence of the former donbting bis wife ' s fidelity , which subsequent events proved he was justified m doing . There was one circumstance of aggravation in this case which he wodH meDtion , namely , that the plaintiff ' s wife was Mrs . Woolterton ' s sister , and therefore the defendant had committed the revolting crime of seducing hiB own sister-in-law . It was a most melancholy case , and it was entirely a question for the jury to determine the-amount of damages to which the plaintiff was entitled . Elizabeth Vesey Sudbury , a respectable looking young woman , was called , and , in conseqnence of becoming overpowered with grief , she was placed in & chair .
Mr . Phillips said that he felt he was placed in considerablo difficulty . The witness was the daughter of the unhappy woman whose conduct was the subject of inquiry that day , but very fortunately she would not be called upon to detail the circumstances of the adultery , for , if that had been so , nothing upon earth would have induced him to call her to speak to the infamy of her ownmother . The witness wab then examined , and stated that she lived with her father and mother np to three yeare sgo .. They did not lire yery happily together in consequtnee of her mother ' s propensity to drink . The defendant used to fisit her parents . About six months ago her mother left the plaintiff .
Cross-examined by Mr . James , who attended for the defendant—Witness ' sjparents lived in the Kentroad when she resided with them . She did not know whese het father lived now . She last gaw _ hun ibM mowing . Whenever' she directed letters to him she addressed them to Barron's-buildings , Waterloo-road . She believed he was now ont of employ . When ha was la * i in business he lived in Bermondsej-s ; reet , and after he separated from bis wife he resided in James-street , Blackfriars-ro&d . She visiu-d her father the day before he parted from her mother , and she saw a female named Ann Davis in the house . If r . James—Did they not part about her I The witness here burst into tears , and the Learned Counsel said he would not distress her feelings , but he would reserve any question until the und of the case . The Secondary asked if the parties oonld not come to some arrangement ?
Mr . Phillips replied that he was entirely in the hands of the plaintiff ' s solicitor . Sarah . Adams was then ealled , and proved that she lived at a house of ill fame , kept by a woman named Richmond , No . 26 , Tower-street . She knew the Defendant , who had repeatedly visited the house in company with Mrs . Sndbnry . On the 17 th of January he was there , and retired with Mrs . Sodomy to a room np stairs . The plaintiff afterwards came in , and saw his wife and Mr . Wooltorton together He returned down stairs for the purpose of fetching a policeman , and the defendant and Mm
Sudbury in the meantime got into another room where there was " company" also , and secreted themselves under the bed . The defendant requested witness to get him out of the house , and Bhe told him he could only leave by the front door , upon which Mrs . Sudbury , who appeared to be alarmed , begged witness to conceal the defendant . The plaintiff went into the parlour and insisted up on bis wife coming down stairs ; . and as she did not do so he went up , and found that she and the defendant had locked themselves into the Toom . Mr . Sudbury threatened to burst open the door , and his wife then came out and left with iim . Cross-examined—The defendant and Mrs . Sudbury had been in the house twenty minutes before the
^———»— —^—^—^^ Am ' i - - — ¦ . ¦¦ ¦ -4 X-Cplaintiff came in . Witness iad j tnderstood that'll Sodbury had watched the part to in . Sk « hU noi seen Mrs . Sudbury sjnee . She did nc ^ . near Mrfc Sadbury make any observation 4 bont doing thi ( tries nicely . The police neter called upon igHness faboftt a watch or money , and she had not seen the plaintiff since he served her with a subpoena . " ' - - Mr . Robert Henley , ironmonger , Blackfriars-road , proved that the defendant was his foreman , and was in receipt of £ 100 p * r year , in addition to keeping a boarding-house in Nelson-square . Robert Pitcher , collector of tolls in Kenningtonroad , stated that plaintiff told witness that he possessed houses near } he Bank ; he did not say the number . ' . .-T . 1 « in »;« P / . « m « in WiW ^ f > * iul jthdertdMiiA tW 4 u&
Cross-examined—The plaintiff at d hts wife were both first cousins of witness , and therefore he came there to give evidence with great reluctance . He saw the plaintiff in the Queen ' s Bench about three or four years ago , but he did not know whether he took the benefit of the Insolvent Debtor ' s Act or not ; he only knew the plaintiff got out . ( A laugh . ) He never heard plaintiff say that he would ruin the defendant . He uid not know where Mr . Sudbury lived , nor could he tell whether Mrs . Sndbnry was fifty or thirty years of age . He had seen her walking in the Waterloo-road very showily dressed : but he was not surprised at that , as she and the defendant ' s wife were left residuary legatees of some proper ty in Holloway-grove , Commercial-road . The witness here complained of receiving a subpoena of one of her Majesty ' s Judges without being paid a copper , whereas , he Baid , he ought to have received a guinea with it .
Mr . Phillips—Oh , oh , Mr . Pitcher ; I ' m glad yon have told as the reason of your reluctance to come here . ( A laugh . ) Susan Reid , servant at the house of ill-fame in Tower-street , gave similar testimony to that given by Adams . The defendant , when he visited the house , was in the habit of coming in first , and in a few minutes he was usually followed by the plaintiff's wife . Elizabeth V . Sudbury was recalled , and , in answer to Mr . James ' s questions , she stated that she had seen her father with a female who was called *• Mary Ann . " Her mother lived at present at No . 2 , St . Patrick ' B-terracej , in-theKent-joad , This was the plaintiffs ease . . ' in
Mr . Jame ^ bis address for the defendant , said the shameless conduct of-the plaintiffid bringing up his daughter to record the infamy-of her own mother he ( Mr . James ) felt assured was sufficient to induce them to mark their strong indignation in this case , and to award the plaintiff the smallest coin in the realm . The plaintiff's daughter did not even know where he lived , and he ( Mr . James ) was sure the jury would not allow the courts of justice to be polluted by actions of such an infamous character , merely brought ' for the sake of putting costs into an attorney's pocket . If the plaintiff had valued the chastity of his wife , would he have stayed outside
the brothel for twenty minutes after she and the defendant bad entered , and been the witness almost of his own dishonour without resenting the wrong at the time ! He would leave the case in the hands of the jury , satisfied that they would scout such actions out of court . The Learned Secondary having summed up , the Jury retired , and after about twenty minutes' absence , they returned into court , and expressed a desire to return a verdict for the defendant . Mr . Potter said , as the defendant had let judgement go by defanlt , the plaintiff was entitled to their verdict . - The jury then again consulted together , and awarded him one farthing damages .
^» KILRUSH PETTY SESSIONS . * _ - rtucnctfc * ea « rAMB p anoak . es , ... _ __ . In this case , whioh excited much attention , from the oft-exhibited oratorical powers of the parties engaged , a Mr . O'Neil figured as complainant—a well-known and interesting veteran in petty sessions' warfare , who begged leave to add to hia genuine Irish patronymic the more Milesian adjuncts of Mortoch O'Brien . Master Mortooh exhibited a countenance , which , between a certain rigidity of muscle in its composition , and an evident neglect of the duties of the toilet in its outward appliancesrendered the task not an easy one to trace the emotions of its owner . He was togged in what had once been an official top-coat , with crimson collar and dollar-sized buttons , having at one time discharged the important duties of crier and summons-server to the court ; but Mr . O'Neil , like higher personages , was thrust out of office ; so he retired to his original occupation of pump-sinker , till called from his
avocation by the troublesome antics of his neighbour . Calligan . Magistrate— How did this man annoy you V ' 'Twould take me a week , your worship , ' replied Mortoch , endeavouring to assume a look at once of candour and indignation , — ' 'Twould take me a week to express the extint ov his ill doins '—abusin' me wife ;—callin * out for a man to meself;—kickin' in me doore;—peltin' me dog ;—throwin * the loss o ' me place in me face , an ' , in fact , botherin' me altogether ! ' —( & laugh . ) .. '¦ ' '¦ ¦" The Bench requested complainant to instance a particular case , whereupon he folded his arms in the attitude Napoleon is represented standing b y the fires of his bivouac , and stated that Mr . Calligan had playfully dropped down through his chimney on •* Pancake-night" the body of a dead dog , that had been battered to death on suspicion of madness the dav before . It in
Magistrate- ^ fell fire , did it not V Mortoch ( with a sarcastic grin)— ' No , ye ' r honour , but into a han'ful of pancakes we wor gettin' up for ourselves an' a nibor or two . Twas my turn to give ' em a irhegee , an' I was jest handlin' the pan , whin down comes the dog ' s corpse , slap amongst the in-^ radients , spatthenn' ' em like thaushe about our little place . '—( Laughter . ) . Mr . Calligan , the accused , a bandy-legged , burlylookiDg gentleman , who appeared quite athome , and affected to regard the whole matter as a thing of no importance , now rose , and paid the ex-crier back 1 in kind , ' by recapitulating a scries of misdemeanors , which , he offered to make oath , were perpetrated at his expense ' be Misther O'Neil . ' 1
Oh ! Paddy Calligan ! Paddy Calligan , ye > e " a nate young man for a small tea-party , ' sung Jlortoch . ' An' indeed ye ' r a mighty agreeable youth yetself , ' returned Paddy , * Arra , Murty , dear , a * ye Temerabet the day you hot me the Pather an' Ave wid the boolthawn or a flail—do you , Murty t When I said to you ' Bad times , Misther O'Neil , ' says I , bifeve there ' s not mnch doin' in the summons-way not f . ' ' Wait awhile , ' says you , * they ' re arinkin' up sthreet , an' who knows what might happen by an' by , wid the help o' the Lord \ —( Great laughter . ) He of the Milesian name turned a deaf ear to these
reminiscences , and , addtessing the bench , exclaimed , 4 What about the pun-cakes , gentlemen V Before their worships could reply— ' I'll tell you what , Murty , ' said Paddy Calligan , slapping his hands , and rolling them together quite composedly , 1 111 tell you what it is—I thrun the dog : be go rVf did !—dead or alive , honour bright , as the sbgeif said when he-handed the bread an ' butther back . tS the child I An' see here , I'll give you a me ?} 0 * pancakes , an ' a glass o' whiskey , as you ' re no me * dal-man , an' let us have peace ; " so saving , he thrust ; out his paw , which was shaken , after Borne reluotance , in the horny gripe of Mortoch O'Brien O'Neil ;
CARLISLE . Shocking Accident on the Newcastle and Carlisle IUilwat . —On Friday last , as-the mail train was proceeding from Newcastle towards Carlisle , near to the Milton station , the two last waggons elipt off the rails and -were precipitated down , the embankment , one of which contained the mail guard in his box , and the other a horse . They rolled over several times ; the guard , a person of . the name of Dugdald , was killed on the spot , leaving a wife and ten children
to lament his loss . We understand the train was pitas-MBJ er ° mP 4 thsLcaj ^ 4 UtfJ 3 * w ^«* Wpttt tifr xne exm speed too con .

The greatest care ought V > be observed in goto * over them , otherwise accidents of the most frigbtifc kind roust ensue . We nape the Directors will look t * the bereaved widow and children .
The Spt System at Dalston , rear Carlisle . —We mentioned the other week , that a person of the name of Morton , had gone to this place , representing himself as a member of the Council of the Carllslo Rascal Association , and as being sent to them to get the people to hold a public meeting and take steps to save the Welsh patriots . He used very unbecoming and seditions language , sod endeavoured to excite the people to hold an illegal meeting . Failing in thtohe wished them to hold a secret meeting , and pass wsolaUon » as to what they were prepared to do , and which resolutions he was to convey to the Radical Association atCarhsle . An information was given to the magistrates , and on the deposition of John Bell , a warrant
was issued for Morton ' s apprehension , but he had ab-* ° *! t On ^^^ test ' however , he gave himself up to the authorities , and a second examination took place at Mr . Hodgson ' s , the elerk of the peace , office : before Major Wild , Major Kirably Wfcsoir , Robe * Hewitt , Esq ., of Brough , and T . C . Heyshant , Es < j ., Tate Mayor . Bell ' s depoistion was read-over t < 5 tneprisone * , when the following qnestions were put to him—ft&oner —Did I ten you that the people of Carlisle were mute * arms ? Bell—No , you did not By tho prironer—Was * I In dnnk at the time ? BeU-I eannot say yon were , yon might have got drink . John Balk examined—I remember seeing Morton in JohnUelVBShop , atDalston , on the 17 th of Febrnary last . There Were present Jonn Bell and the prisoner , William Gibson , Thomas Hallands , and George Ferrage , the latter went with me . He said he was sent by the Radical Council of Carlisle , to call- a meeting afc twelve o'dock ; to pass resolutions to bring to the Carlisle Council—to the effea of liberating Frost , Williams , and Jones .

He then came into Carrie ' s shep , where I work—it was between one an ^^ lwo o'clock . I looked at Morton and aaid , y < to must either be deceivingjronr . 3 « lf or wishing to deceive others . Be said he would not rest night nor day until Frost , Jones and Williams , and other political prisoners , were set aij liberty . He said if every man was of ¦ ¦ ¦ ¦ Ms mind , Queen nSi ^ ki ^ . ^ 4 ' w JlIi . J l ! £ l :
Victoria would not be reigning Queen of England . He said , what do you say to that ? I aaid ; I dare not say . He appeared as if he was crying . He came and sbobk bands with me , and left the shop . I cannot say he was drunk—my impression , was , he had got something ; we thought if he Lad not been drunk , he would , not have come in the manner he did . —By the Prisoner-Did I say that if all were of my mind , Queen Victoria would not be reigning Queen of England ? Yes , you did . —The magistrates then told the prisoner that be might say anything , but cautioned him to be catefol , as it night be brought against him . Morton said J am very sorry for what I have done—but I did not go with the intention of hurting any one . The parties were then bound over to prosecute at the Sessions ; and Morton was liberated on finding bail for his appearancehimself in the sum of £ 80 , and two , sureties of £ 10 each . ¦ ¦ ¦ ' ¦ ¦ - '¦ ' - ¦¦¦¦ . ¦ ¦ - ¦ ; ¦ - ¦ . .
Me . James Brontebre O'Brien in Carlisle . —As soon as the news reached here of the acquittal of this gentleman at Newcastle , an invitation was sent to him to visit this place , for the purpose of addressing the people . To this Mr . O'Brien consented , and the Theatre was taken for Wednesday night Before the hour appointed , the house was crowded almost to suffocation . Owing , however , to business of a most important nature , Mr . O'Brien was too late for the five o'clock train ; consequently , he could not reach here at the time appointed . The disappointment seemed to be much felt , and fears were entertained that some new disaster might hare happened him : it was thought probable that he bM again fallen into the hands of tne Philis tine * Hi * absence waa made up for , however , by Mr .
Joaeptt J&ptA Hanson addressing Hie people on the subject of th * © orn Laws , as there has been much agitation on HBls ^ subject of late . He t ook a clear and comprehensive view of the subject , and contended that these abominable laws could not be justly repealed without an equitable adjustment . He concluded a most excellent address by challenging the anti-Corn Law gentlemen to a public discussion . On Thursday evening Mr . O'Brien arrived , and on Saturday it was announced that be would give a public address in the Thoatae that evening , at four o ' clock , which was much too early an hour ; imt this arose from the great difficulty of obtaining a place , Mr . Thome ' s company ot players having to perform that evening , and the Town Hall having been refused . The following is the bill : —
"Mr . James Bronterre O'Brien will deliver a public address in the Theatre on Saturday evening , the 7 th of March , on the present state of public affairs , and the importance of union amongst the middle and working classes . In the course of the address Mr . O'Brien will dwell on the subjects of Corn Laws and Currency , hewing their effects on the trade , commerce , and industry of the country . " Long before the hour announced tho place / was crowded to excess , and great numbers we are told could not gain admittance , such was the intense anxiety to bear Mr . . O'Brien ; and although it ' was at a time wfcen many could not possibly attend . On Mr . ©¦ Briefi ' making bis . appearance be was received with trabttBdous cheers . After the noise had subsided , be aoM- ^ Mtn of Carlisle ^ 1 am glad to Bee for tw t t 1 ~ mm tf ¦

I understand we are honoured with the company of some of those guardians of the public peace—those blue-coated gentry , who follow me wherever I go , not through respeet to me , for I am a peaceable man , and wherever they go there is mischief . y ° willoxcuse me if I do notgetnp " routs , riota , rebellions , " Ac &c . ( tbe peculiar monnex with which Mr . O'Brien repeated'these words * caused much mirth ) against the peace of our Sovereign Lady the Queen , her honour , and dignity . Mr . O'Brien then went oh at great length , and in a strain of humour and sarcaam / to relate the proceedings against him at Newcastle , eliciting the most rapturous
applause from his audience . He dwelt at great length , and with much clearness and perspicuity , oa the state of the country , pointing out fai a most forcible manner , tbe cause of the present unprecedented mass of misery and suffering among the industrious classes , shewing bis audience that there was not tbe slightest hope of remedy until the people got a share in making the laws by which they have to be governed . Mr . O'Brien reminds us very much , of the late Mr . Cobbett , in his manner of going into tbe subject ou which he treats : he seems to enter into it with all bis soul , and tears tbe very heart out ot it ; be lays everything bare to tbe view of Wb hearers , and appears determined that they should understand it as well as himself . He spoke nearly two hours , and was listened ' to throughout with the . most marked attention . We consider such men as
Mi O'BnpA Wm calculated to produce great good in sjjejety , by preparing the people for those great changes which must sooner or later take place , and on the pnWr direction of which will wholly depend tbe future welfare of the country . At the close of the address , a vote of thanks was proposed to Mr . O'Brien , which was carried by exclamation , tbe whole company rising and cheering far some seconds . Mk P'Bribn's Sermon By particular desire , Mr . O'Brfen preached a sermon at the villRgo of Dalston , on Sunday evening j , and although there are only about 2 , 00 , 0 inhabitants , yet there would be at'least " 1 , 500 present , hundreds having come from Carlisle , a distance of five miles , and many from the surrounding places . He preached a beautiful moral discourse , from the ¦ w ords—** Do unto others as you would have others do nntoyotu "
