SIR EDWARD SUCHER'S CASE.—Sir Edward has published,. another letter, denying
every thing that could be denied ; and Mr. Fraser has reiterated all his statements, supporting some of them by writtea docu- ments. Among the documents is the following copy of a letter from Colonel- Gordon to Sir Edward Sugden and Mr. Fraser, which appfteRd H' the Times of the 13th. H' the Times of the 13th.
" Gentlemen-I am desirous to buy the political; properties of Messrs. John end Edmund Henning, and Mr. Joseph Hon:Card, in Weymouth, for a sum not exceed- ing 21,0001... in the name of myself and Mr. Sugden, as tenants in common. Now I authorize Mr. Sugden to enter into a contract accordingly, and I will find the whole of the purchase-money, and pay all the expense of every sort, and indemnify Sir. Sugden therefore, who is to stand seized of the moiety to be conveyed to him as a trustee only for me. Mr. Fraser, as my agent, will enter Into the contract on idy behalf foe one moiety, and Mr. Sugden-is to be considered as my agent and trustee for the other moiety. And I hereby ahinauthorize-Me. Fraser, as my agent. to teen such oontract for me as the purchaser of one moiety of the estate, and I will furnish the purchase•money for the entirety. "I am; gentlemen, your most obedient servant, "London, July 39, 182S. " (Nix Gottoo:1" Were the terms of the agreement,. comprised, in this letter, suggested- by Sir Edward Sugden? If they were, a little fact is disclosed, which proves that Colonel Gordon was a very simple person. According to this agreement, the- votes which cost Colonel Gordon 21,0001., were to be conveyed. to Sir Edward Sugden ; and that vested in him the entire con- trol over them, by giving him what the lawyers call their al estate, and which enabled him. to prevent any vote being_ made unless each voter votetlfor Sir Edward himself. Thus situateds who can, doubt that Sir Edward' would cease to execute conveyances. 'era freehelds which are always made at elections, if any one of the nominated voters pre- sumed. to vote without including Sir Edward as one of the members to •
be advanced on the poll by his suffrage?
A. greater masterpiece of legal, cunning cannot be imagined. If facts
be so, we think that it is a little out of order that his Majesty's Solicitor- - General should have used his professional cunning for his own advance- ment, whether by express agreement or by concealed intention, by thus
baking this egregious Scotch cake ! Now, Sir Edwards farewell ; this agreement floors you " quacunque via," as you sometimes say in argu- ment when you. have hung your opponent upon the horns of a dilemma. Most cases you can readily answer, but this case is too much in point against you to. be satisfactorily solved. If a party require-to be acquainted with law about buying aud selling estates, he may with propriety con- sult Sir Edward's book ; -but if he wishes to enjoy the benefit of a rich man's money by buying and selling votes,. to be used as he may desire,. he need not-hesitate about consulting Sir Edward hinself. THE RECORDER OF BRISTOL.—Poor Sic Charles Wetherell, instead of meeting with cheers, as he doubtless expected, in his entree into Bristol the other day, was pursued with hissings and hootings all the way to
Boo Loo.—An unfortunate Chinese of this name was operated on at Guy's Hospital on Saturday last, for the extirpation of an enormous abdominal tumour. The operation was, conducted with great skill and care by Mr. Key, but with a fatal result. The death of this man, whose case had excited great interest, is attributed solely to nervous exhaus- tion. The quantity of blood, wholly yenta's, lost in the course of the
operation, did not exceed sixteen ounces ; which would have been borne by a European without danger or even inconvenience. The tumour,
when separated from the body, weighed lifty.sie pouuds, and measured. four feet in circumference.
