Application has been made on behalf of William Hill, porter

of the Dissecting-room at King's College, to Lord Melbourne, for the reward offered on conviction of the murderers Bishop. and Williams. [It ought to be given to somebody ; but Mr. Thomas has a better claim than Hill. The fairest way would be to divide it among all concerned.] The crew of the French smuggling-cutter, which was captured last week by the Coast Guard, .St. Ives, have been convicted by the Magis- trates of that borough in the sum of 100/. each, and committed for non- payment to Bodmin gaol.—Devonport Telegraph.
