CORNWALL QUARTER SESSIONS

These Sessions commenced on Tuesday last, at Bodmin, before E. W. W. Pendarves, Esq., M.P. Chairman, and a numerous Bench of Magistrates. The Court opened about eleven o'clock, and after the Act against riotous assemblages, and the Kings proclamation for the encouragement of piety and virtue, and for the preaching and punishing of vice and profaneness had been read, the Chairman proceeded to address the Grand Jury.

... I have nothing of local interest to mention, but will make a few observations on the New Poor Law Act. It will doubtless soon commence its operation in the Eastern part of this County, when I hope it will extend from thence to the Western part. I have not the slightest doubt, Gentlemen, that if it is managed with discretion, moderation, and calmness, the effect will be beneficial.  Much mischievous matter has been written, and many mischievous things spoken against it; amongst other things, that no relief would be granted to anyone outside the walls of the work-houses; but I can assure you there is no such clause to be found at all Act, and the persons fabricating this report, must be utterly unacquainted with its different sections.  But whatever the law, Gentlemen, it is our duty to observe it, not only with sullen obedience, but by every means in our power to enforce it, each in our respective spheres. ....

It was agreed by the Magistrates to petition the King in Privy Council, that Callington be added as another polling place for the Eastern Division of this country.

The following cases were tried:

Mary BURT, the younger (25) committed Nov. 12 by George Simmons, jun. Esq. Mayor of Truro, charged on oath with having feloniously stolen at Truro two pairs of Kid gloves, the property of Richard Barrett, Draper.  Guilty.

Mary BURT, committed Nov. 12, by Edmund Turner Esq. charged on oath with having feloniously stolen at Redruth a piece of lace, the property of Catherine Boase and Charles Bennett. This prisoner is the mother of the last one, and on the house being searched to find some articles supposed to have been stolen by the last prisoner, the lace was found with some sheeting, on which prisoner was charged and committed.  Guilty.

William HELBORNE (on Bail) charged with stealing five pounds of beets, property of Charles Phillipps, of St. Miniver.  Acquitted.

Joseph EDE, (on Bail) charged with stealing two pounds of bacon, the property of John Wiltz, of St. Kew.  Guilty.

John ROWE, the younger (18) committed November 30th, 1836 by Edmund Turner, Esq.  Charged on oath with having stolen in the parish of Kenwyn a Bay Gelding, of the value of Ten Pounds, the property of Richard Michell Hodge.  It appeared that the prisoner had acted as groom to Mr. Hodge, five weeks previous to his committal: and on the morning that the horse was missed, the prisoner rode it out, under the pretence of airing it; but instead of doing so, rode off with it.  Other witnesses were produced on the part of the prosecution, who clearly proved the charge against the prisoner, and he was accordingly found Guilty. The Chairman immediately sentenced the prisoner to be transported for life.

William MERRIFIELD, the younger (on Bail) pleaded guilty to a charge of stealing four metal teaspoons.

Ann MOORE, (on Bail) charged with stealing one silk shawl, the property of William Harvey and others, of Chacewater.  Acquitted.

Thomas BOLITHO (21) committed Dec. 16th, 1836 by Richard Buller, clerk, charged with having stolen one hat, the property of Henry Stevens.  The prosecutor lives in the parish of Pelynt, and was at Trewas[?] Gate, in the parish of Lanreath, when he put his hat on the bed, and on going after it found it missing.  Another witness was called who saw the prisoner take the hat from the bed, and wear it away.  The prisoner was pursued as far as Dubwalls, near Liskeard, where they found the hat in prisoner's possession. Guilty.

Richard BRANCH (28) committed Dec. 27, 1835 by William Hockin, Clerk, charged on oath with having stolen a cake of copper, the property of Messrs. Carne and Vivian.  Guilty.

John KERN (19) committed Nov. 7, 1836, by Edward Rodd, D.D. and Francis Rodd, Esq., charged on oath with having taken two cows and claves, the property of Richard Doidge, his master; with having sold one of the cows and calves without his consent, and with having feloniously appropriated part of the money to his own use.  The facts in this case were clearly proved, and the prisoner having set up no defence to the action, the Jury immediately found him guilty, and he was sentenced to be transported for life.

William NILES (32) committed December the 19th, 1836 by Thomas Ching, Esq. Mayor of Launceston, charged on oath with having stolen an ash pole, the property of Richard Wise, of Launceston.  Guilty.

Francis WOOLCOCK (on bail) indicted for stealing 20 gallons of Wheat, the property of Mr. John Williams; Guilty.

LOCAL NEWS

Dreadful Accident - Last week a poor woman of Tintagel, of the name of French, was burnt so severely by her clothes taking fire, that she lived but a day or two after.

Launceston - The Duke of Northumberland has given large quantities of wood to the poor of Launceston and St. Stephens, and has caused a number of deer to be killed and distributed among them, during the last fortnight.

Melancholy Event - On Saturday last, Mr. John Rowe, formerly a respectable mercer and tailor, of Launceston, and for many years a Town Sergeant and Crier, hung himself in a fit of temporary insanity, in a loft behind the Exeter Inn, in that town.

On Sunday afternoon last, Joseph Hocker and his wife, residing at Pengiggan, in the parish of Camborne, went to the Methodist Chapel in the above village, leaving five children at home. The eldest, a boy of about nine years of age, was requested to take care of the rest, but he left the house for a short time, and in his absence, his brother, a little more than four years of age, began to play with the fire, when his clothing ignited, and he was burnt so severely that he died the next morning about eleven o'clock.

Isles of Scilly, Dec. 28 - Winter has set in here with a degree of severity unprecedented for many years.  After several weeks of rain and gales (chiefly from the westward) the wind has veered to NE and E with heavy squalls, and much snow, hail, &c. Numerous vessels have, in consequence, sought shelter at Scilly - some of them having experienced much damage.  ...Several heavy vessels, being unable to beat up into the Roads, have been obliged to anchor in Broad Sound and St. Mary's Sound.  Others have been seen to the Southward, vainly endeavouring to reach this port.  About 100 vessels are here at present.  The wind has fallen much, but the cold is severe.

Accident from Fire Arms - A serious accident arising from the incautious use of fire arms, occurred at Camborne on Monday se'nnight.  Two young men, named Benjamin Tregona, and Henry Bawden, were out on a shooting excursion, when the former perceived a rabbit start from near him.  He hastily turned to fire, when by some means his gun unexpectedly went off and lodged its contents in the side of the head of his companion, who was at the time not more than a dozen yards from him.  As the skull does not appear to be injured, it is hoped he will soon recover.

LETTERS to the EDITOR

Sir: The Editor of the "Mining, Railway, and Steam Navigation Gazette" has thought fit to notice my last. ...  He says there are but four smelting "establishments". The Houses and Companies are:
- Calstock House, Devon Smelting Co.
- Higher Blowing House, Daubuz and Co.
- Carvedras, Daubuz and Co.
- Trethellan, Grenfell and Boase
- Calenick, Michell and Co.
- Bolitho and Sons
- Angarrack, Bolitho and Sons
- Joseph Carne
- Trelissick, Grenfell and Pascoe
- Treloweth, Daubuz and Co.
- Chyandour, Bolitho and Sons
- William Cornish
- Trereife, Batten and Sons
- Wheal Vor, Wheal Vor Adventurers

Now here are eleven different "establishments" and nine different merchants; how much more competition would the gentleman desire?  Whether Messrs. Bolitho, Daubuz, Williams, Davey, Harvey, Batten, Grenfell, and others are "plague-spots" in the county of Cornwall, I will leave the foul-mouthed slanderer to determine.  If I be "either knave or fool" why does he notice so bad a character or so weak an argument? ....YOS, Samuel Smelter, January 4, 1836 [as printed jm]

Redruth - To be sold or let, public house situate at the South Turnpike Gate, the GEORGE and DRAGON, property of Mr. Henry Chipman, of the King's Arms Inn, Redruth.

- Minutes of the proceedings of the Council of the Borough of Truro
- Meetings of the political parties

Court case, sent to the West Briton for inclusion, [regarding the Church of St.Mary and it's wardens, versus the Mayor, four Aldermen, and Capital Burgesses of Truro; after the Municipal Corporation Act, the boundaries of the Borough of Truro were changed to include the entire town (including parts of the parish of Kenwyn and St. Clement). As a result, the Church wardens denied Borough officials not living in the parish reserved pews in the Church. The Court held that it was a long-established tradition, but not a law, that the pews be reserved, and suggested the Church relent in that the ladies might have a pew reserved for their use. jm]

Local News

Truro Christmas Ball - This ball, which took place on Wednesday evening last, at the Assembly-Room, was very fully and fashionably attended; upwards of forty couples were present. The ball was opened by Lord Boscawen and Miss Foster, and dancing was kept up with great spirit till a late hour. The walls of the room were covered with the splendid pictures which are there for exhibition with the view of being sold by auction on Wednesday the 25th instant.

Melancholy & Fatal Accidents

On Thursday, the 5th instant, in consequence of a horse starting that was in a cart, at West Looe, an old man called John Braben, who belonged to that town, was killed on the spot.  An inquest was held on the body, and a verdict of accidental death returned.

On Thursday last, an inquest was held at Tintagel, on the body of William Matthews, a shoemaker, who was found dead in a slate quarry, on Tintagel cliff. The deceased, who was an active man, though about 80 years of age, was at a neighbouring village on Wednesday evening; and the evening being dark when he left to return home, it is supposed that he must have missed his road, and fallen over a precipice upwards of 100 feet high, as the bones of his chest and some of his limbs were fractured in such a way as must have caused immediate death.

Missionary Bazaar - We understand that the Wesleyan Missionary Bazaar, which was held last week at St. Ives, produced £50 clear profit.

Coroner's Inquest - On Wednesday last, an inquest was held before Hosken James, Esq. at the dwelling house of James Dunstan, in the parish of Feock, on the body of James Dunstan, Yeoman, aged 77 years, who lived at Quench Well, in that parish. It appeared from the evidence, that for some years, the deceased had not been on terms with his family, and consequently resided in a house by himself. Not having been seen since Sunday, his house was opened by his neighbours on Tuesday, about one o'clock, when he was found on his knees leaning against a chair by his bedside quite dead. His coast and waistcoat were off, as if he had been preparing to go to bed, and from appearances about the house, it is supposed he must have died on Sunday evening. No marks of violence were found on his person, and although he lived separately from his wife, his sons had been in the habit of visiting him occasionally, and attending to his wants.  Verdict - Died by the Visitation of God.

Church Rates - A Public Meeting of the inhabitants of Barnstaple, was held last week, on the subject of Church Rates, when the following Resolution was carried unanimously: "That this meeting regarding all compulsory payments for the support of religion impolite and unscriptural, feel themselves called upon deliberately to protest against church rates - as oppressive to the conscientious dissenter, who supports his own minister and place of worship - degrading to the churchman, by implying an unwillingness to support the church he conscientiously approves; and in their influence on society - unfriendly to its peace and religious advancement."  It was further determined to petition the House of Commons on the subject; and an Anti-Church Rate Society was formed.

Falmouth Quarter Sessions

On Wednesday, the quarter Sessions for the town of Falmouth were held before Thomas Paynter, Esq. Recorder, J. Cornish, Esq., Mayor, and the Borough Magistrates.  There were but three bills brought before the Grand Jury, one of which was thrown out. Bills were found against Abraham Oates and William Cornish, of Penryn, the former for stealing a Brush from the shop of Mr. Geach, saddler &c, and the second for stealing a coat from  Mr. Brewer of the Ship and Castle Hotel. Both prisoners were found guilty, and sentenced to three weeks imprisonment.

We understand that in consequence of the court having been kept waiting on account of the thin attendance of the gentlemen of the Grand Jury, the recorder read the clauses of the Act relating to non-attendance of Jurymen, and said that in future fines would be enforced.

Launch - On Thursday, the 5th instant, a fine new schooner was launched at East Looe, from the yard of Mr. Henry Shapcott, in the presence of some hundreds of spectators, who were highly gratified at the sight. The launch was as fine a one as ever was seen in Cornwall, and the evening was spent in the greatest harmony at the Buller Arms, where an excellent supper was provided, and partaken of by upwards of one hundred persons. After the cloth was removed, many appropriate toasts were drunk in flowing bowls of punch. The schooner is about 130 tons burthen, and is called the "Caroline".  We wish her success.

St. Ives - We are informed that the new road from Trelyhon is now open to the public, and that it is one of the pleasantest roads of its length in the country.

Wesleyan Missions - On Wednesday the 28th ult, the friends of the Wesleyan Missionary Society in Bodmin and its neighbourhood took tea together in Cullis's New Rooms, which were procured for the occasion.  About 300 persons were present. The rooms were tastefully decorated with laurels and evergreens, and the fireplace was ornamented with a well executed transparency, representing the Wesleyan Missionary Society, under the appropriate emblem of a first class Merchant ship, called "The Invincible", with sails filled with the auspicious gales of Heaven, colours flying, and copper bottomed.  Onward this gallant vessel bounds over the surge, and as she nears the distant Isles of the sea, thousands of natives are represented as eagerly looking out for her arrival.... The meeting was addressed by Rev. Mr. Hobbs (Independent); the Rev. Mr. Wilson (Sunday School Union); Rev. W. R. Williams of Camelford; and by the Rev. Messrs Rouch, Roberts, Parsons, and Sanger, and preachers of the Bodmin Circuit. The repast was provided by an enterprising, zealous lady of Bodmin, whose heart is in the Mission cause, and the utmost good feeling pervaded all present. The proceeds of the tea meeting, after deducting all expenses, amounted to £6. 3s. 4d, which sum was applied to the Mission fund.

It is truly gratifying to the friends of the Society, to be able to state in addition to the above, that the income of the Bodmin Circuit Missionary Society, for the last year, amounted to the sum of £210.1s.9d, being an increase on the amount of the year preceding of £19.10s.11d.

Lander Column - On Tuesday last, a meeting of the Lander Committee was held at the Council Hall in this town, W. M.Tweedy, Esq. in the chair, at which arrangements were entered into for the immediate erection of the Lander Column. We understand that Mr. Pryor, who has just completed the erection of the De Dunstanville Monument, has offered his services, and we have every reason to believe that the work will be resumed and finished in a manner worthy of the object. But, to that end, considerable additional subscriptions are necessary, and we take this opportunity of informing the public, that lists are open at several banks in the County, in the hope that liberal contributions will be received.

PACKET INTELLIGENCE - On Friday last, H. M. Brig "Express", Lieut. Croke, arrived here from the Brazils, having sailed from Pernambuco, on the 17h of October; Bahia, on the 21st; and Rio de Janeiro on the 12th of November. She brings on freight £19,000 in gold and diamonds. At Rio, everything was tranquil when the packet left.  Funds were rising, and things looked well.
