A very decided "sensation" has been produced in the City
this morning, by the announcement that Messrs. Rogers, the bankers, have succeeded in recovering nearly the whole of the vast amount of notes stolen form them some years since, but which the Bank of England, under a certain guarantee, have replaced. The notes are deposited with the latter for examination; and it is understood that Messrs. Rogers will lose about 2,5001. It will be remembered that the robbery took place on the night of the 24th November 1844, and that, besides the notes, there was 12001. in gold. We need hardly say that Messrs. Rogers have not had any of the latter returned. The reward offered by the Association of Bankers was 8,0001.; and the precautions taken to prevent the circulation of the notes have at length induced the delinquents to restore them.—Globe.
At the Central Criminal Court, today, Mr. Thomas Mackintosh Davidson was tried for the wilful murder of Lewis Mountford. Mr. Davidson, who resided in the house of Mrs. Holmes, at Clay Hill, Tottenham, is of unsound mind; and in a sudden fit of insane anger he mortally wounded his attendant, Mountford, with a table-knife. He was committed for trial, this week, on a Coroner's warrant; but today his unquestionable insanity was successfully pleaded, and he was acquitted.
