Lancaster Assizes. The following list, in addition to that which we gave in our last, will complete the calendar of the prisoners and their sentences. … John Howarth, for horse stealing, at Eccles. Death. . … In passing sentence of death upon the forty-four prisoners capitally convicted, the Lord Chief Baron Richards commented on their various offences, and allowed 38 of them to entertain hopes of mercy as there were no circumstances of atrocious violence connected with their guilt; but to six of them he forbad any expectation of forgiveness its this world.
