Minnt.e.sex. Sessioes.—Northhouse and Lowe, formerly convicted of having obtained money
under a false representation of partnership to aid in establishing the London Free Press, were on Thursday brought up for judg- ment. Mr. Alley moved an arrest, on two grounds,—first, That the verdict was general, whereas the indictment was laid ontwo separate offences, involv- ing different punishments ; and next, that the facts sworn against the defend- ants, on the trial. were not true, as he had affidavits to show. One of these affidavits, from Mr. Hume, tended to negative a immaterial part of the prosecu- tor's evidence. The Chairman decided, that the case should stand over till the first day of next sessions : the prosecutor in the mean time to answer the affidavits. The prosecutor would not allow the defendants to go at large on their own recognizauces, and they were committed to prison.
