At Hertford Assizes, Simon Clarke, for horse stealing; Thomas Berry, for sheep-stealing; John Smith, for house-breaking; Richard White, for uttering base coin (he having been before convicted of the same offence at Middlesex, which renders the last a capital offence); and Thomas Thompson, for a rape: were severally found guilty, and received sentence of death. The Learned Judge told Berry and Thompson, that they must expect to receive no mercy.
