The prir-mer being called upon to make liis de-
"nce, iddr-elled the following narration to the
C"nrt, as coniaining all lie ksew concerning the
Manner andti circemilances of the death of the de-
'tsied, viz. That he rented a cloft in tIe fsAmc
peril with the decefaled, and that the deceased
e"lted another cole adjoining it-that the pnly
a5Y to b. own clofe was through that of the dc-

ccaed ; and that on the day the murder in the
indictment was ftid to be committed, he rofc
early in the morning, in order to go to work In
his clol', with his fork in hit hand, and paring
through the deccafed's groin he ohferved a man
at dillance Irom the path, lyine down, as if
dead, or drunk ; that he thought hinmfef hound
to fee what condition the "perfrn was in, and
upon getting ip to him, he fourind him at the laft
cxtremity, with two wounds in his breaf, from
Shich a preat deal of blood had ilffrd--that in
or'er to iclitev him, he railed him up, and with
great dmffircuty fr-t him in his lap-that he told the
deccal.l he was greatly concerned at his tunlhappy
fate, and the more fo, as there feamed to be ti,,
much rrafoni to apprehend he ihd been mirdecrcl,
-that he intreattd the drccafed to difcover if
poffi'e tile occeiron of his ml f rtrune, alluring
him he woulllll uife Iit utmoft endeavrours to do
irfli.e to ha, fIuljfliiii -that the deccaled feem-

had blrnll a 1diff ie ce hrer\etn the lcrcafed anti

it adrfileh'o to have the drceacld in the condi-
tiot he ewar, and to take i-i farther nilice of the
mattet-tlh.t, in the confrol)llTll hle Wa* ii when he
left the place, lite took away the drce.'fed's fork,
*nd left his own in the room ofit, by the fide of
Ih. cor'fit -that heing obliged to go to his worK,
he thought it hcft to (hilt his clothes, that thle

arl ugly circumflance, that might be trged against
him, and becig unwi'liing to be brought into

ftiy with a filtl ni decliralion, that he had re-

The JIudIec then proceeded todeliver his charge,
in which be p.lheclic.lly entlrged on the hcinotif-
ncfs of the crime, and laid great flrrfs on the
force of the evidence, which although circunflan-
tial only, he dcclarcd he tlhnulght to he irr fifti-

kind? on murderer would ever be bmroght to jut-
lice, fuch bloody diede being getnrally p-rpetra-
icd in the dark, and with the greatat ferrely--
that the present care was tempted, in his opi-
nion, from all pnoflbility of doubt, and that they
ought not to hclitate one moment about finding
the plifinee guilty.
The Foreman begged of his Lordlhip, as this
was a cafe of life and death, that the Jury might
be at liberty to withdraw; and upon this motion,
an officer was fwvorn to keep the Jury.
The tlial came on the first iu the morning, and
the Judge having fat till nilr at night, etpeding
the return of the Jury, at laft fent as officer to
enquirer if they were agreed In their'verdilt, and
to lignify to them that his Lordfhip would wait
no longer ifr them. Some of them returned for
atrfwer, that eleven oftheir body had been of the
fame mind from the first, but that it was their
misfortune to have a Foreman that proved to be a
singular instance of the mol inveterate obfninacy,
whohaving taken p a different opinion from them,
was unalterably fitxd in it. The mcffenger was

no fooner returned, but the complaining men.
hers, alarmed at the thoughts ofbelng kept under
confinement all the might, and, defpairing of
bringing their diffenting brother over to their
own way of thinking, agreed to accede to his
opinion, and having acquainted him with their
resolution, they fent an officer to detain his Lord-
flip a few minutes, and then went into the Court,
and by their Poreman brought in the prisoner n"l
guilty. His Lordfhip could not help exprefing
the g-rearc frirprize and indignation at this unex-
pedted verdiCt; and after giving the Jury a severe
admonition, he refnfl'd to record their verdict
and fent them back again, with dirediona that
they Ihnuld he locked up all night, without fire
,i candle. The who!e blame was publicly laid on
the Foreman by the relf of the members, and
they fpent the night in loading him with reflec-
tie;na, and bewailing their unhappy fate, in being
affaciated with fr hardened a wretch-but he
remained quite inflexible, connfantly declaring he
would finffer death rather than chang- his opinion.
As foon as hii Lordlhlp came into Court the
next morning, he feat again to the Jury, oa
which all the eleven member joined in rcqueqft
ing their Foreman to go again into Court, aflur-
ing him they would adhere to their former verdit,
whatever was the confrquence; and, on being
reproached with tliiir former inconiftency, they
promised tefrr to defert, o9 recriminate upoa
their Forteman any more.-Upon there aflurance,
they proceedrr into Court, and again brought in
tle priliner net grifty. The Judge, unable to
conceal Iis rage at a verdid which appeared to
h:m in the mRft iiiiqitrirus light, reproached theu
with the frLvercft crtfires, and dilmilfed them
witll this rutting rcfll'ion, That the blood of
the decealed lay at thIi door."
The plimerr, on his part, fell on his knees,
and with uplifted eyes and hands, thanked God
for his deliverance, and addreffing himself to the
ludge, cried out. You fee my Lord, that God
and a cired confcince are the heft of witnelfes."
There circumllances made a deep impreffion oa
the mind of the Judge, and ai foon as he was re*
tired from Court, he entered into difcourfe with
the High Sheriff upon what had palTed, and Far-
ticilarly examined him as to him knowledge of
this leader of the Jury. The anfwer this gentt'e
man gave his Lordfhip was, that he had been
acquainted with him many years-that he had
an estate of above ol. per annum, and that he
rented a very befides--that he
ever knew him charged wish an ill acion, and
that he was universally efteemed in his ceighbour"
For further informatidlh his Lordfhip likewise
fent for the Minifler of the ParflO, who gave the
f-me fiovorable account of his parilhioncr, witb
this addition, that he was a cunflant churchman,
and a devnot communicant.
There accounts rather increased his Lardfhip's
perpleity ; from which he could think of no ex-
pedient to deliver himfelf, but by having a confe.
rence in private with the only pe-fon who could
give him fatisfadion. This he dcfired the Sheriff
to procure, who readily offered his ferice, and
without delay brought about the defred iatcr.
Upon the Jlryman's being introduced to the
Judge, his Lordlhip and he retired Into a clofet,
where his Lordlhip opened his reafonu for de.
firing that vilt, making no fcruple f acknow.
edging the uneafinefs he was under, and conju.
ring his vifitor frankly to difcover his reasons for
acquitting the prifoncr. The Juryman returned
for anfwcr, that he had fulflcient reafoni tojutf
his coadult, and that he wu neither afraid
nor alhamed to reveal them, but as he had
hitherto locked them up in his own breat, and
was under no compuliho to difcolae them, be
expected his Lordfhip would engage upon his
honour to keep what he wa about to unfold a
fecret as he himself had done, which hbl Lord.
