Details: John Boreham, convicted of inciting certain parties t o commit a robbery in the dwelling house of Jacob Wyer. The learned Judge Dowling in passing the awful sentence of the law upon the prisoner, remarked, that after a most patient investigation of his case the Jury had felt themselves compelled to find him guilty and he was perfectly satisfied with the justness of that verdict. Several petitions had been placed in his hand, which before coming into Court, he had laid before his learned colleague, and every thing had been done what justice had required. The case was one, of the most aggravated circumstances; the respectability of character which he had formerly maintained went in aggravation of the offence; since the trial he had enquired into his past life, but no redeeming circumstances had transpired which would warrant him to recommend the prisoners as a sit object for mercy to the highest authority in the Colony. He must now prepare for an awful exit from this world, and to meet his maker, to whom alone he could now look for mercy. The learned Judge then passed the dreadful sentence of the law upon him. The prisoner was much agitated.
