Walter Watts was sentenced by Baron Alderson, yesterday, to be

transported for ten years. It was stated in court that the full amount of his defalca- tions to the Globe Insurance Company is 80,000l.

This morning Mr. Watts was discovered to have committed suicide : he had hanged himself by his cravat to the bars in. a cell to which he had un- watched access on account of his state of health. He had thought the sen- tence passed on him very severe. Another suicide was committed in the same gaol, Newgate, yesterday evening. Donovan had been convicted of throwing his wife out of window, and been sentenced to death. He had hanged himself by his handkerchief in the same way that Mr. Watts did.
