The Stanfield Hall Murders. Fbbthek. Exa...
THE STANFIELD HALL MURDERS . FBBTHEK . EXAMINATION OF HC 6 HNorwich , Tuesday . —Yesterday , James Blomfield Rush , tbe suspected assassin of Mr Isaac Jenny and bis sen , at Stanfield Hall , underwent another magisterial examination at the Castle of this city . The magistrates present were the Rev . Edward Postle , of Yelverton ; Sir J . P . Eoileau , of Eetteringuam Hall ; and ths R-sy . C . A . Woodbouse ; Mr J . 5 . Casn , ofWymondham , being the clerk to the bench . This unexpected examination took place in order that the prisoner ( Rush ) might hear the additional statement which Emily Sandford had made at the last meeting of the coroner's jury , and which hsd not been takes in the evidence sworn before the magistrates on the occasion of their fully committing Sim for trial .
On Rush being brought forward by Mr Pinson , the governor of Norwich Castle , the prisoner ' s unhappy dupe , Emily Sandford , was introduced by Mrs Bryant , the matron of Wymoudham Bridewell , in whose custody she still remains . Having been duly sworn , she went into a more lengthened detail of the prisoner ' s conduct on the nifhfc of the murder than she gave before the coroner . She minutely de * scribed his coming to her bed-room door on the night of the murder , and his gently knocking for admission : that on bis entering he leant against her bad ,
and she , perceiving his violent trembling and agitated state , inquired of him ' Good God , what is tbat matter f' That he told her she must be firm , and if anyone asked her how long he bad been out , te say that he had not been more than ten minutes away . That she again asked him what was the matter , and that he replied , 'Nothing ; but yon may hear of something in ths morning . ' All these facte were reduced to writing , and others which tended to show the intimidation he evidently held ont to tbe unfortunate creature net to divulge his movements .
Rush ' s manner towards the witness on ibis occasion was caln , and contrasted strongly with his violent behaviour towards her on her former examination . The search for the weapons with which tbe witnesses are pesiiive the murders were committed , still excites the greatest attention . In an official letter tho search is thus described : — 'The Potash Farm is no longer ia t \ e actual possession of the police ; one man is , however , still kept npon the premises . To discover the pistols , twenty pits have been pumped out , and every particle of mud removed from them : had a pencil case been at the bottom , it must inevitably have been found . The fences and ditches have in like manner been cut down and drained out—every rabbit or rat hole has
teen probed to the bottom—furze and other bushes grabbed up—muck heaps , turnip heaps , mangel wurael heaps removed—turnip fields most minutfly examined—ploughed lands peforated with heavy crow-bars—grass fields pierced with iron spears having a * row prints , so that no loose sod could by possibility avoid detection . To test the labourers and policemen employed in tbis labour , pieces of turf were cut out indifferent parts of tbe fields in which they were placed , and replaced , so as to be impossible to bs discovered on one most minute inspection . They were all found and brought on the points of the barbed arrow on which they were pulled up . In the hoHje , fire places , hearths , floor * , have been removed , chimneys examined , bouse carpenters and
masons employed in every part . Only one stack has been removed ; but each remaining one will undergo the like examination , whenever it may be required ia the barn for thrashing . The Sell at the back of the garden has been completely dug np from one end to the other . Every tree in the park bas been mousted and minutely examined . Intact , such a search 1 really believe waa never made before . Net that the evidence of the pistols is new at all necessary , in my humble opinion , bnt to satisfy the public mind , and tbe conntry in general . ' Several interesting facts have been collected by Michael Harden , a shrewd officer cf the London ( City ) detective police force , which will tend to establish a strong chain of evidence is support of the prosecution .
It is not the intention of the authorities to apply for a special commission to try the accused . Mrs Jenny , and the maid , Eliza Chestney , are progressing favourably . As soon as practicable , it is the intention to remove Mrs Jenny to London .
A Pakachdtk Fob Coalpits.—To Descend Int...
A Pakachdtk fob Coalpits . —To descend into mines and coal-pits , and to ascend by means of vertical ladders , are operations so fatiguing that tbe Belgian pitmen prefer , in spite of tbe regulations which forbid it , to expose their lives to the risk of the strength of a rope , which , unfortunately , often breaks and precipitates them to the bottom . We ( Brussels Herald ) attended last Wednesday , an experiment on a large scale , which demonstrated in the most efficient manner , that henceforth this danger no longer exists for the pitmen . By means of an extremely simple apparatus the cuffat remains suspended in tbe middle of the shaft when tbe rope breaks . This trial was not made by means of a working model , but in a pit of some depth ; the apparatus was worked by men who remained suspended in the well when the rope broke short off .
For tbe future the parachute for coal-pits is no Ionger a theory ; its efficacy is now established by practical facts . The effect of this apparatus was shown before a numerous company , comprised of men of information , the greater part familiar with the working of mines . Their satisfaction was so great that they spontaneously offered to the inventor to make affidavit on the spot of the facts to ¦ which they had been witnesses . Amongst the party was a gentleman who wished the experiment to be tried npon himself ; the rope having snapped he and the workmen accompanying him were spontaneously stayed without feeling the slightest shock . We shall not fail to acquaint our readers of the new applications which will not fail to be made of this invention , doubly interesting , whether looked upon in a humane point of view or as a matter of economy in the working of mines .
The British Museum .-Ou Monday last the British Museum was re-opened to tbe public it still continue open on Mondays , Wednesdays , and Fridays , without intermission , between the hours of ten and four , until the 1 st of May , and will be then closed till the 7 th , when , on re-openirg , the hours will be extended from ten till seven . The new building , with the exception of the addition to the Gallery of Antiquities , erecting in lieu of the Towrily Gallery , is complete , and early in the ensuing manth of February the last remaining portion of Old Montague House , fronting Great Russell Street , will he removed ,

CHOLERA AMONGST THE PAUPER CHILDREN AT TOOTING . The following official report ef the state of the juvenile pauper asylum at Tooting was on Tuesday night forwarded to the various boards of guardians who have children in tbat institution - . —Surrey Hall , Lower Tooting , Jan . 9 . 1849 , 6 p . m . —I have to report respecting the cholera cases here that the number of fresh ones are on the decrease , and that these do not present the very severe symptons that the first cases did . We have had fourteen new cases of children attacked with cholera syraptons , eleven with diarrhea only . The * number of deaths from cholera in tbe twenty-four hours have amounted to
sixteen . - Tbe rest have been removed to the convalescent wards . From the numbers that have been removed altogether , we hope that of the few remaining a very small number will be attacked with the disorder . Howards of one hundred have been removed from Tooting belonging to the Strand Union , The chloroform was administered last night and today by inhalation with very good effect in more than one case . —( Signed ) W . J . Kits , enrgeon , < fcc . ' It is generally considered that this return from Mr Kite , so far from showing that there is any actual diminution in the number of attacks and fatality of the die * ease , the contrary is the esse , when the diminished numbers now in the asylum are taken into consider * tion , nearly 1 , 009 children having been removed .
Stbasd Union . — The guardians of the Strand Union have hired for three months the premises of the Society of the Refuge for the Destitute in Ogle Street , Marylebone , and have removed to that place their panper children heretofore resident at Tooting . St Pascbas . —A meeting of the directors of the poor of St Pancras took place on Tuesday , when a report from a committee appointed to visit the establishment at Tooting was read . The following report was a ' so read from Mr Bird , a medical gentleman , specially appointed by the board to attend the St Pancras children since their removal , * To the directors of tbe poor of St Pancras . —Gentlemen , — At your solicitation I have undertaken the medical superintendence of the children recently brought
home from Mr Drouet ' s establishment at Tooting , where Asiatic cholera bad made its appearance , and received about 200 children on Saturday last . Two were taken ill as soon as admitted . Acting upon the principle * that prevention is better than cure , ' I carefully examined each of them , and administered appropriate medicine to all . I visited and watched every child in their beds every half hour during the night ; and although many of both eexea were relaxed , I had no eases that exceeded the premonitory symptoms , which counter-irritation with calomel and opium checked , and every child arose en Sunday morning apparently in good health , and made a most hearty breakfast of bread and milk . I must say , in justice to Mr Drouet . aa far as an observer could
have judged , the children generally looked well and in good condition . Unfortunately this state of things did not contince . Tbey were evidently predisposed to the epidemic , and ten were attacked . Boiled mutton and bread was given to each child for dinner , and they appeared cheerful , hearty , and thankful for the attention bestowed by all parties . In the afternoon , ten more cases occurred . Some of those that were in a state of collapse , seemed improving . On the nigbt of Sunday , about thirty were more or less attacked , leaving about fifteen of each sex under treatment . During the whole of Monday only one case occurred up to eleven o ' clock at night , and I waa greatly in hopes that I should have been able to
report this day ( Tuesday ) most favourably , but seventeen were attacked during the night , and three have reached the state of collapse , notwithstanding every attention on the part of Mr Wilkinson , his assistant , and myself , leaving the statistical account at present as under : —Number attacked , 67 ; deaths „ 6 ; under treatment , 27 ; state of collapse , 4 . I cannot close this report without bearing my humble testimony to the prompt , ready , and efficient assistance rendered to me and bsstawed npon ths children by Mr and Mrs Eaton , and all parties acting under my directions , as well aa making mention of the unlimited power yon yourselves have placed in my hands , to endeavour to allay this melancholy affair . —( Signed ) Hskrt Bird , Surgeon .
Chelsea . —On Tuesday an adjourned special meeting of the guardians took place , when Mr Jelf said he thought that the children ought not to be removed , but at the same time he thought it was the duty of the guardians to send further medical assistance down to Tooting . —He therefore moved a resolution to tha effect that it wonld not be expedient to remove the children . —Mr Eyre seconded the resolution , which waa earned unanimously . It was then moved and carried that a communication should be made to Mr Dronet to know if he required any fur . ther medical aid , or aid in the shape of nurses , and if so that the board wonld supply them .
CoRONis ' g lKQrj £ sT . —Several of tho children belonging to the Union ef Si Andrew ' s , Holborn . were removed frem the Infant Pauper Establishment at Tooting on Friday last , some of whom have died of cholera in the Royal Free Hospital , Gray ' s Inn Lane , Is appears that the deaths among the children brought to that institution amounted to four . —The names and ages of the children are—Jtmes Andrews , aged six ; Jeannette Johnson , aged eleven ; Bridget Qain , aged five ; and Michael Harper , aged nine years , —For a period of about fifteen months the guardians of the Hilborn Union have had , upon an average , 198 pauper children in Mr Drouet ' s establishment , at a weekly cost of 4 s . 6 d . per head . As soon as the cholera was reported to have made its appearance in the establishment , the guardians directed one of their medical officers to repair to Testing and report open the state and
condition of the children . This was done , and on Thursday this report was made , and it was of such a character as to lead the guardians immediately to remove the whole of the children—not into the workhouse , for there thsy had no room—but into two unoccupied wings of the Royal Free Hospital , which had been offered to them , until some permanent place conld be provided . Tbe removal was effected in vans , under the superintendence of the clerk and oneof the medical officers of the union , on Friday week , the girls arriving at six in the evening , and the boys later , that is at half-past ten . The total number removed was 152 , It waa found necessary to leave about forty still in the establishment , at Tooting , because their removal could not be t ffecfed without danger , and eight had previously died . Oa arriving at the hospital , the whole of the 152 , fffa ) bad been pronounced healthy , were served with

a substantial meal of milk and braad . They were also medically inspected , and 135 were found to be infected with the itch . Although pronounced well , several of the children , both boys and girls , were taken ill , the symptoms being similar to those observed at Tooting . Andrews , who was firstsei & ed , died on Saturday forenoon Johnson the same after , noon ; Q , uin expired on Sunday morning , and Harper on Monday morning about one o ' clock . At a late hour on Monday , the others who had been seized were going on well , and no more fatal oases were expected . —The guardians eauaed information of the deaths to be made to Mr Wskley , M . F .. Coroner , and the inquest was appeinted to be held the same dayat the Royal Free Hospital . Me
Wak-, ley , however , was not present , being seriously indisposed , and Mr Mills , the Deputy Coroner , presided in hi * absenee . —After the Jury had been sworn they proceeded to view the bodies , which severally presented a most distressing appearance . Those of Andrews and Johnson appeared to have undergone a post mortem examination . —The Deputy Coroner , upon the return of the Jury , briefly addressed them upon the nature of their duties in this important investigation . He stated that none of the bodies ought to have been opened without an order from the Coroner , who had resolved that the strictest inquiry should be made into the causes of death , unleaa the gentlemen by whom the examination bad bf en made were not aware of the intention te hold
an inquest . With the view of affording time to prepare the necessary evidence , it will be requisite to adjourn the inquest to a future day , when the Coroner himself would be present . The Jury must have observed that the bodies were comparatively this , feeble , and poor . These conditions might arise from a variety of causes , and he would recommend the Jury to be guided in their eonclusions only by the evidence which would be brought before them . — Three nurses then gate fotmal evidence of the deaths ; after which the inquest was adjourned . — Instructions were given for an examination to be made of the bodies of Harper and Quin ; and Dr Goddard . of Harley Street , was directed to be present on the part of the Coroner .

Iguana , Fmday :. — Frozen TO Dbath—Before Mr W . Payne and a jury , in the vestry of St Magnus church , Fish , Street Hill , relative to-the death of a Lsscar sailor , wko was found dead on tbe steps leading from Upper Thames Street to King William Street , London Bridge . — W . Cormiok , City policeman , deposed that on Wednesday morning last , about half-past five , whilst on duty in Upper Thames Street , a man called bis attention to a person who was lying dead on the western steps of the bridge , near Fishmongers' Hail . The deceased appeared to be a foreigner , and was very badly clothed . — -Mr Smith , the surgeon , was called , but life had been extinct some time . —A Juror : Is it not your duty to visit the steps in question ccossionally during the night ? Yes , air , it appears now tbat it ia a part of my duty , but 1 have only been on the beat four nights , and my
superior officer never made me acquainted with it . Idid not go farther than Mile ' s Lane , if I had I should have seen the man earlier . —Mr C . Smith , of Gracechuroh Street , surgeon , stated that when he saw deceased he was quite dead . Witness had examined the body , and , from the climate deceased had been used to , be was of opinion that his death was accelerated by exposure to the extreme frost during the night . If he had been discovered sosner , most probably his life might hare been saved . —The Coroner , after hearing a B & vere . censure from several of the jury relative to the neglect of the police , summed up the ease , when the following special verdiet was recorded , ' Died from natural causes , and the jury are of opinion that the death was hastened by exposure to the cold , as the spot where deceased was found had not been visited by the police for nine hours . '
Fatal Accident to a Somnambulist . — Before Mr Baker at the Frying Pan , Brick Lane , upon the body of Mr C . Vanderstein , the landlord of the tavern , aged 86 . —Emma Rimsden , the niece of tbe deceased , deposed that six weeks ago a disturbance occurred in the house , and that deceased had made extraordinary exertions to expel a number of riotous and disorderly persons . This circumstance excited him very considerably , and there was an irritable excitability observed in his manner from the time of the occurrence until he died . Shortly before two o ' clock in ! the morning the inmates of the house
were awoke by hearing the crashing of glass , and upon investigation it was discovered that the deceased had fallen frem his bedroom window upon the second floor . He lingered until Wednesday last , when he died , He had in the meantime stated that in his sleep hia thoughts reverted to the previous night's disturbance in the house , and that he imagined he was again employed in a personal cor fliot with some of the parties . He rose to pursue them , rushed to the window , and hence the accident . The jury returned a verdiet of ' Death from Injuries received by falling through a window , whilst in a state ef somnambulism . '
Fires . —As Bow . —Late on Thursday night a fire broke out upon the premises belonging to the Northumberland and Durham Coal Company , known ss the Railway Wharf , lower side of Bow Creek . It oommened in a wooden building about forty-five feet long by nearly twenty broad . Owing to the easy ignitable nature of the building , but few minutes elapsed ere the same was in flames . Information was promptly forwarded by the railway guards to the engine stations , and in a short period several engines attended , but not in time to render any assistance , for the fire had almost burnt itself out . Ax Pep . lar . —Another fire , at No 5 , Tetley Street , Poplar New Town , was caused by some children _ playing with fire , and thereby retting a bed , in which two children were lying , in flames . Theories of the inmates brought assistance , and the children were rescued , but not before one waa dreadfully burned ; the others narrowly escaped .
THB WSATHXR AND THB PARKS . The various royal and ornamental parks were en Sunday visited by many thousand persons , and the frozen waters were at cne time literally crowded with skaters and sliders , many of whom , as will be seen from the subjoined official reports , paid yery dearly for their intrepid conduct . St Jaubb ' s Park . —The Royal Humane Society , in order to prevent persons from venturing upon the ice , had board ? marked 'dangerous' placed round the water , and the icemen cautioned the people that it was hardly strong enough for a single man to pass over , notwithstanding from 1 , 400 to 1 , 500 insisted upon going on to the frozen water , who for some time were amusing themselves by skating and sliding , but , in the course of the day , a great many accidents occurred , none , however , attended with any serious
consequences . Tna RiOEHi ' Pake . —The ice on the ornamental waters in this park did not exceed three inches in thickness , notwithstanding whioh . about 12 . 000 persons ventured on during the day . About four o ' clock the parties were greatly alarmed by an immense portion of the ice giving way , when from sixteen to twenty persons were precipitated into the water . The cries of those in the water and those on shore for assistance was pitiable in the extreme . The whole of the icemen , with deputy superintendent Chitty , put oS with breaker ladders , sledges , and drags ; but the moment they came near to the place , the ice broke , and the whole of the men , with the exception of Chitty , were in the water . He having got a chopper , cut away the ice , and succeeded in getting the sledge to the spot aad took several on
board ; whilst iceman Smith , No . 28 , got three oarties out by means of a hand-line . The whole of the persons were removed to the tent , and every attention was paid to them by Mr Norton , the surgeon , and they all recovered . From the fact of so many persons being ia the water at one time , it is extremely doubtful whether some have not perished . This supposition is strengthened by the fact of a boy ' s cap being found in the water , and a lad of fourteen years ef age having been inquired after . The Sbbpbhtike . —The number of skaters en the ice ever the Serpentine River was , during the day , about 2 , 000 , and five were immersed . Three of the parties weie saved by iceman Maskell , with the line * They were all taken t » the receiving house , and received the best attention from Mr Williams and other official ? .
Thb Round Pord . —About 1 , 000 skaters and sliders during the day . The ice being good , no accident occurred . The Loss Water —Prem 500 to 600 persons ventured on the frozon water here during the day without meeting with any accident of importance . FOKBHAL OF THB LATE EaBI . 01 ? AUCKLAND . —The funeral of the late First Lord of the Admiralty took place on Saturday forenoon , when the remains of his lordship were removed from the Admiralty for interment in the family vault in Beckenham . Church , near Bromley , Kent .
Accioent on the Blackwam , Railway . —An inquest was held before Mr Baker , coroner , at the King and Queen , Limehouie , as to the death of G . Pancrios , aged 28 , a Greek sailor , who was killed on Thursday week by falling from a carriage on the Blackwall Railway , owing ( it was alleged ) to the carriage door not being properly fastened . From the evidence of Juan De Kaltizani and ethers , countrymen of the deceased , it appeared that on the arrival of the quarter-past eleven o ' clock down train at the Minories station of the Blackwall Railway , the deceased and several others got into a second-class compartment of the Poplar carriage . The door was
closed after them , and the guard stated most positively tbat be properly fastened it ; on the other hand , the deceased ' s countrymen who were in the carriage allege otherwise , for on the train passing tbe Gun Lane Bridge , between theLimehouseand West India Dock stations , the deceased placed his ' right elbow on the top of the carriage door . He had no sooner done so , than the door flew open , and the deceased fell out of the carriage headforemost onto someiron railway ; plates , which Were lying on the side of the line , with such violence as to shatter his skull to atoms , and the wheels of a carriage pasted ov | ' his legs , mutilating them in a shocking manner * —Mr Wigfitcaan , oa tekrifof the company , produced

He had been given to understand that a person who was a passenger m the same carriage could give tome very important evidence : he was not present , and he would suggest an adjourameat ; -. The coroner said , that it was very important for all partiestbat they should have that person s testimony , and the inquiry was adjourned . Finas w BETHNALGRBBN .-On Saturday last , two fires broke out in the parish of Bethnal Green , b » th attended with a considerable destruction of property . The first occurred upon the premises of Mr Long , cabinetmaker , Church Street . The flames
originated in the workshops at the rear of the dwellinghouse , and on tke arrival of the engines , not only the entire range of workshops and all they contained were found in flames , but the fire had penetrated the back windows of Mr Long ' s private house , and tbe greater part of the furniture was in a blsze . Before the fire was extinguished , Mr Long ' s workshops were totally destroyed , the back wiadow-sashes of the dwelling burned out . and the furniture much damaged . —The second fire broke out at neon in a large etore , about sixty feet long , belongine : to Mr Phillips , a cora-ohandler , In Anne Street , Pouard ' s Row . The buildin g was filled with hay , and very speedily the place was en fire from end to end . The flames were , however , confined to that portion of the property in whioh they originated , and which was entirely burned down . Mr Phillips was not insured , and will be a ssrious loser .
Imhomaw Treatment rp A Convict .-, On Tuesday morning , Mr Bedford , the coroner , held an inquest at Millbank prison upon the body of John Sherry , a tailor , who died in the infirmary of the above prison , upon Sunday last under the following circumstances : Mr Forster , the deputy-governor of the prison , deposed that deceased was received at half-past six o ' clock oa the morning of the 3 d instant , from Liverpool Borough Gaol , under sentence Cf ten years ' transportation ; but upon examination by Dr Baly , he was rejected as unfit for transportation , having lost his right leg . He appeared to be in good health otherwise , and was tolerably cheerful when admitted . Jameson and Stockwell , the reception warders , proved that they received him and nineteen others from a
van npon the morning in question . At a quarter past one the following day , deceased complained much of cold and shivering . Information of the fact was immediately conveyed to Mr Rendell , the resident surgeon . Dr William Baly , physician to the prison , was then called . He stated that he feund deceased suffering from very severe inflammation of several of the air tubes of the lungs , producing the disease known as acute bronohitic , of which he died . In answer to questions which witness bad put to deceased , he stated that he had travelled from Liverpool on the night of tbe 2 nd , in a carriage open at the top , and that he had suffered most severely from intense cold upon the journey , and that he attributed his attack to the cold which he tben suffered . The
direase of whioh he died would result from exposure to great cold , and no doubt did result from such exposure . A juror expressed a wish to know what clothes the deceased wore during the journey , and they were accordingly produced . They centistedof a pair of thin and tattered trousers , without lining or drawers , a short jacket , and a miserable waistcoat . The shirt had no back , and was a maas of rags . He had no flannel or other corering'to his body of any description whatever . —Henry Smith , a prisoner , who had travelled un from Liverpool with the deceased , called and examinee / . I knew the deceased , having been confined with him two months in Liverpool gaol . We left Liverpool between seven and eight o ' clock on the evening of Tuesday , and were
ten hours upon the road . The van in whioh we came had a sore of open wire lattice work at tbe top , with spaces of about an inch and a half square between each crossing of the iron-work . There were occasional crossings of timber , so that the top was about half open wire-work and the other half wooden beams . The wire-work was close to our heads , aud the wind came in very much . We hsd our own clothes on , and a small rug about large enough to cover a truckle bed intended for one person . There were not rugs enough for us all . Before leaving Liverpool , about half-past four in the evening , we had some gruel and bread to eat . Wo hid nothing eke until we arrived here , excepting once npon the journey , about twelve o ' clock at night , when we had two small
biscuits and butter and a glass of whiskey each . I believe the van belonged to the gaol and not to the railway company . —Dr Baly , in answer to questions from the coroner , said that the clothing was notsnm . eient to make the journey safe . One female prisoner who travelled to London in the same van has been suffering from a severe cold , whioh would be likely to be produced , by the same cause . —The coroner summed up at considerable length , and the jury fonnd , ' That the deceased , John Shewy , died from acute bronchitis , accelerated by the severe cold experienced during a journey by night from Liverpool in a van not sufficiently protected from the weather . ' The jury further recommended that in future these vans should ba better protected .
Extensive Seizuhe op Illicit Spirits . —On Saturday night , about ten o ' clock , a seizure ef spirits , still , and tbe visual apparatus for carrying on a very extensive trade in illicit distillation , was effected by a Custom House officer named George George , who is now stationed at the West India Docks . From information George received , he proceeded with three police constables , all well armed with pistols and cutlasses , to the house No 22 , Catherine Street , Limehouse Fields . Two of the constables were stationed in front of the house , while George and the other constable entered the adjoining house and proceeded to the back of the premises . The smell of
spirits was very strong , and it was evident that a still was in full operation . George found upwards of SOOlbs of salt , soap , and the neceseary apparatus for carrying en a very extensive trade in illicit distillation . There was also found in the same room 300 gallons of wash , in a state of fermentation , and several bladders , whioh had contained illicit spirits A man and two females were the only persons found in the hon * e , and when questioned , they mi their name was Cotterell , and tbat they were only lodgers in the house , They were quite ignorant of the still being in the kitchen . George seized the still , spirits , and all the utensils , and conveyed , them to Broad Street .
Ikqubst os thb Body o » Ma Stbpheksos , ihr Portrait Painter . —The adjourned inquest was resumed on Monday , when Mr Noad , the chemical lecturer of St George ' s Hospital , gave evidence as to the contents found in the stomach of the deceased , and the jury returned a verdict of 'Natural death . ' Tha deceased gentleman baa left a widow and several children . Gold Mines op California . —Four csmpanies are already formed in London for sharing in the riches discovered to lie in abundance in California .
Plough Monday . —Monday last being Plough Monday a petty session was held in the Guildhall , by the Lord Mayor and Aldermen for the purpose of receiving the returns and presentments of tbe several ward ! . —Mr Godson , foreman of the inquest for Al . dersgate ward , complained cf a most intolerable nuisance which proceeded from a whalebone manufactory . The nuisance was not visible , but closely embedded in the heart of the ward , and the effect npon the organs of smelling was altogether beyond description . Added to that , he stated that some dis orderly houses of the worst kind were in a state of constant oSanoe , and Aldersgate Buildings needed the operation of draining so much that it would be difficult to find in the City of London a
neighbourhood in which sanitary regulations were more necessary . Alderman Challis expressed surprise that the Alderman of the ward had not represented the mat tors of complaint in the Court of Aldermen . —Mr Godson , who is one of the deputies of the ward , said that Sir Peter Laurie had complained of the nuisance by which the inhabitants were almost poismed , but the evil remained uncorrected . —The Lord Mayor assured the deputy that the Court of Aldermen would ake up the subject with all possible expedition .

EMPLOYMENT OF THB POOR . HOME COLONIES . A publio meeting convened by requUitton , and pre . aided over by the High BaUiff of Westminster , for tbe employmeat of the poar , was hsld at Willis ' s Roomi ) King Street , St James ' s Squero , on Thursday , at one o ' clock . The Chairman briefly opened the meeting , and Introduced Mr Lushingtom , M . P . for Westminster , who proposed a reioUtlon approbatory of the Leicester Square Sonp Kitchen and St Bernard ' s Boepicr , Ho said , he applauded tbe oonreners and objeoti of the meeting , but , at the same time , thought tbat something of a more extensive kind should be adopted , Indi * visual tiertloa was aot Buffioleut , however well intontioned . We wanted means , and the way te obtain
them wa « fcy a redaction of expenditure . Let the Army , Navy , and Ordnance estimates be reduced , at well as otber publio establishments . ( Loud cheers . ) lie feared he was too political for some , but It ' . was bis rocatioi ; and it must not be forgottea tbat a vast quan * tlty of the people had come te the conclaslon that a great hangiwasantoemry prelude to any soalal change—( loudcheers]—and when tbia took place , men would te s . 'at to tbe Houie of Commons wbo could uoeerstand tbe wants and sympathise with the condition of tbe peor , ( Loud cheers , ) Mr Lushing ton concluded by movteg tbe resolution placed In bis hand , ia approbation of the Leicester Squire Soup Kltohen aid Mount Saint Bernard Hospice . j This resolution was seconded by
The Rev . SAUOsr , Jones , In a spaeeh replete with ahuee of ' Levellers , ' ' Communists , ' and ' Red Republicans , ' interlarded with scripture , but tbe indignation of the meeting , soon brought ths Rev . gentleman ' s peroration to a full stop . Mr Hcgqih contended , that the people should te first fed and tben legislated for . Ho was for placing taxation on the right shoulders , namely , that of property—( loud cheers )—md depend on it tbey would soon become Financial Reformers . ( Hear . ) He paid a high cos ; , pliment ( o the British people , as tbe most industrious and orderly in the world , ( repeated cheers ); the ; deserved their rights , and must seen have them , Indeed they would not bt men if they did not ; what they contended for was , employment ^( or the poor , and rights for all , ( Much applause . )
Mr Alexandib Camfbell congratulated the people on having a meeting convened for such a purpose . He was sorry to hear a reverend gentleman lurintute that the working people were desirous of appropriating the property of others . Oa tbe park of tbe industrious classes he repudiated such a doctrine . No ; all tbey asked was employment , that they might create more wealth , of which they might become partakers . ( Loud cheers . ) But this tbey were denied , as tbe land was locked up from them . Mr Campbell here rtad from the « Trades ' statement , as presented to the House of Commons by lord Ashley , the nnrnber of unemployed operative * , and the quaatlty of mvouUhated liuta in Eagtand , aud eaid , things had now become worse ; there might , be a calm for . a time , but there was a point beyond enduranee . ( Tremendous cheerieg . ) Statistics showed him that there were between three acd four millions of people In Great Britain alone , living oa ebarity ,
or being fed from poor-rates — yet the land of England alone would yield support to one hundred and twenty million souls , but it was looked up—and , turning to Mr Lushingtan , he said , 'Sir , I hope you will tell jour friends in the house , that there can be no Free Trade while these things are so . ' ( Great ap . phuee . ) Mr Campbell proceeded to eomaend self-supporting < Home Colonies' as a national remedy for the national evil—want of employment , ( Land eheers . ) He did not object to Mr Cobden , or any other financial reformer , he believed Mr Cobden was honest , and would teach some where . ' the shoe p inched , but tinkering was of no use , tbe system itself was radically wrong . There were fifteen million acres ef land alone in aa uncultivated state . Tben , wby not cultivate them , and employ the people ! Ay , evea at the expense of government , funds could be raised to build prisons , to imprison those persons rendered criminal by their own criminal system , ( Great applause . )
Mr S . Kxon in rising , was received with immense applause . He said , pauperism had existed from the time of Elizabeth , down to that of Tictorla , and he did not think it conld be got rid of In a day , a month , or a year—he had bo objection to soup kltoheni or street sweeping—better give a man soup than let bim starvebetter let him be usefully employed in cleansing the streets , than be a useless burden on society . Hr Camp , bell bad commended to their notfee' Home Colonies , ' be agreed with them In principle , bat he ( Mr Campbell )
had asked what objection could Parliament have to sane . tion a bill for their adoption ? Why were not the gentle , mtn who composed the Parliament men ef rank i Had thsy not passed and adhered to the Ifew Poor Lairt The gentleman who so ably presided over this meeting bad told them that in Ms parish of Saint James ' s , they had an anomaly—namely , a number of very rich and a number of very poor men—and he ( Mr Kydd ) would very much like te know who was to compel those rich men to support the poor , seeing tbat the wo . Wag classes had tb voice la making tha law , X > ld not
' Law grind tbe poor , and rich men make the law 7 ' We have heard much of revolution ? oa tbe Continent , Poverty was the great revolutionist , and it was impossible that thing * conld remain a * they are for ever , Jews had gotten rich out of our Industry—nay , mere , these isles had made nations rich , whilst Britain ' s own p eop le were the veriest slaves on the face of the earth . The questloa of Labour was tbe great question of tbe day , and he was for having it fully discussed , not en the principle of the Ber . Mr Jones— ' Learn nothing from a Chartist ; ' but on the principle of ' Hear all things , and holdfast by that which Is good . ' Mr Kydd resumed his seat amidst tremendous cheering . The resolution was then put and carried .
Mr Cuables CecnRiKE , in rising to move the second resolution , said , be must be allowed to state , before be entered into the merits of his resolution , tbat neither he nor tho conveners of that meeting put forth what they were offering as ' national remedies for ) nat ! onaI diseases , but aa simple temporary expedients ; and he begged permisst n further to state , tbat he respected the opinio ? , of others who did propound national remedies for national evils , be they ei t her political or social . "Working men were not the licentious , debauched creatures some would
make them . The' street orderlies ' had coavinced them th a t i t was onl y necessary to treat them kindly , and fiad them ^ employment , to make them good members of bo . oiety , and good citizens . So eathfhd were the house , holders and' ratepsyers with the tsreet cleansing , that he believed it would be adopted throughout this great metropolis . Mr Cochrane concluded by moving a resolution In favour of street cleansing , ! as a means of supporting the poor of the metropolis ; also tho adoption of a memorial to the CommiBiloaeri ot Sewers in favonr of the same .
The Rsv ; Mr Baeww , In seconding the resolution , spoke highly of cultivating the wastelands , and tha Agrl . cultural Tillage Society , as teeommended b y Mr Morgan . He had evengene so far as to speak to Lord Morpeth on the subject , mora especially with reference to the cultivation of Epplng Ferest . After apologising for his reverend friend llr Jones , bo said , he must en . treat of them not to look on the proposition he was seconding as anything but what it was , namely , a simple expedient ; he by no means wished them to take it as a sort of Morlson ' s Pill '—( laughter )—a sort of cure all . Mr H . Ross said , he did not wish Mr Cochrane or the
gtuthuneu who acted with him In getting up this meeting , to suppose for one moment they had come there iu a spirit of antagonism , but they did wish that Parliament which was just abeut to assemble , should under , stand that they , the mechanics and artisans of London , did require some more extensive meature than one whioh merely gave them a basin of soup to eat , or a broom wlm which to sweep the streets . We want such measures that shall find profitablo employment for all and enable us to well feed our stomachs , and well clothe the baeks and minds of our children , whioh he thought was home colonisation and a good secular education , ( Lsudeheers . )
A Mr A'Beckett , said to be a solicitor , and a conirl . butor to the columns of Pckch , attempted to ridicule the working men , by recommending ' shoe blacking , " but was literall y laughed from the platform . Mr Abhstbono Waiton rose and after quoting from the Trade ? Pamphlet , recommending home colonies said , the bill convening the msetlajt called on the mechanics and artisans to attend , end he thought tbat being called there tbey should give expression to tbe ' r feelings . He represented large masses of mechanics . He had listened to what had been proposed , and did not think tbat proposed vieat far enough . He had listened with admlratioa to some of the speeches , especially those of Messrs Kydd and Qkmphell , and did not wish to move any amendment , but thought the fallowing eould be added as an addition to the resolution submitted : — ' That this meeting is of opinion , tbat the unparalleled amount of distress among the mechanics and artisans , arises chiefly frem the
want of employment , and tbat Great Britain and Wand contain a superabundance of land , labour , skill , and capital , to profitably employ aad comfortably support double tbe amount of the present population ; tbis meet , ing , therefore , recommends to the people the propriety of preisiagon the government the necessity of intcoduc . ing into parliament a bill sanctioning the establishment of Home Colonies as the best means of securing profit , able employment for the numerous but compulsory unemployed portion of our population . ' Mr A . Campseli , seconded the adoption of the addition , The High Baiusj ? thought the addition had better be submitted as a third and substantial resolution , and If the mover agreed , he ( the High Bailiff ) would consider both propositions moved and seconded , and proceed to pat them . The second resolution was put and carried . The third , as moved b y Messrs Walton and Camp , bell , was put aud adopted amid tremendous acclamation OutbemotVm of Cuaeles Lushihotmi , M .
