Wm. Garraway Vizard , has been this week committed to the Old Bridewell, Devizes, charged with stealing a bundle of wearing apparel, a pair of stockings, and other articles, from the dwelling-house of Charles Porter of Malmesbury. Vizard was one of the most active rioters at the House of Correction, near this town, a short time since, where he was then undergoing a sentence of 18 months imprisonment, for a felony. After this he was convicted of stealing some blanketting belonging to the prison, with which he made himself some waistcoats,  and was transferred to the Old Bridewell for further term of three months. He was finally discharged at the last Sessions.
