Charing Cross, London


On Saturday last twenty five prisoners were tried at the Old Bailey; four whereof were capitally convicted, viz. Isaac Dennis, for robbing Judith Smith on the Highway, of thirteen pence half penny; Patrick Gaffney, for robbing Mr. Shirley at the Hoop Tavern in the Strand, of two Silver Tankards, value 28l.; and Edward Togwell and Peter Matthews, for ravishing Margaret M'Cullough, and using her in a very barbarous manner.
