Details:FRIDAY.-George Fenwick Jackson was indicted for the wilful murder of John Williams, at Newcastle, on the 14th ult. From the testimony adduced on the prosecution it appeared that the deceased was working at the lime-kilns, and the prisoner was also employed falling trees near the deceased; that the prisoner re- quested the deceased to give him some tobacco, which the deceased refused, alleging as a cause he had none, upon which some violent language occurred, and the prisoner seized an axe and struck the deceased on the back part of head with the edge of the instrument, which killed him on the spot. The prisoner endeavoured to make it manifest to the Court that the crime for which he was placed at the bar proceeded wholly from accident; that the deceased had threatened to strike him with a saw, in the course of the dispute, and having the axe unfortunately in his hand at the moment, it gave a swing, which put an end to the life of a fellow creature. The prisoner not having any witnesses to support his assertions, the Court retired, and after the absence of nearly an hour, returned a verdict of Guilty. His Honour the JUDGE ADVOCATE proceeded immediately to pass the awful sentence of the law, which consigns the prisoner to suffer death on such day as His EXCELLENCY the GOVERNOR may think proper to direct ; and his body afterwards to be given up to be dissected and anatomized.
