GUILDFORD— Tuesday. William Pimm, John Hannon, and George Walker, three young men, and Elizabeth Parker, a girl of the town, were found guilty for robbing George Clark of a watch, two half sovereigns, and other property, on the Sth of July last.

George Clark, according his own evidence,  was threatened with fearful oaths by Pimm, to be murdered, he moved or cried out. Pimm then with a knife cut his fob from his trousers, and recured his watch. The others got his money.
