Colonel Royal was then on the eve of departure for England; and he thus writes to his friend in Medford:-- I shall leave North America with great reluctance; but my health and business require it; and I hope, through the goodness of God, if my life is spared, to be able to return again soon. In August, 1777, Dr. Tufts had a letter from him, dated Kensington, England. Colonel Cary, who had married a lady from New York, occupied Colonel Royal's house in 1778. The house and farm were rented for £ 200. At a later period, when three gentlemen bought the entire estate on speculation, expecting to realize large fortunes by dividing the whole into lots, there was a valuation of the lots, and the sum total was $81,996.00. A few lots were sold; and the dreams of Croesus became those of Belisarius. Colonel Royal's opinions and conduct respecting the struggles for indepen

Mr. Moran, the proprietor of the "Arcade," substantiated the main facts of the witness's evidence, and as soon as French returned to breakfast went to the watch house after officer Bibb, who came over and arrested him. There being no rebutting testimony, the Mayor remanded the prisoner to the February term of the Hustings Court for trial.

Mr. Johnson suspected Fanny at the time of the occurrence, but preferred waiting till after the expiration of her year with him before taking steps to obtain proof against her. A few days ago he got out a warrant to search her room, and placed it in the hands of officer Davis to execute. That gentleman did so, and succeeded in finding several articles of wearing apparel belongi

The evidence failed to convict him of the offence, and he was thereupon discharged; but Mr. Cary, his owner, was required to pay a fine for permitting him to go at large. William Kothe, charged with the murder of Allen, a slave, hired by him, and whose case Mr. Cary, his owner, was required to pay a fine for permitting him to go at large. William Kothe, charged with the murder of Allen, a slave, hired by him, and whose case was partially heard on Monday last, was again brought up before his Honor yesterday. Upon hearing the testimony of Dr. Albert Snead, who attended the deceased, the accused was discharged. Dr. Snead stated that the condition of the negro for the past four months was that of a man in the last stages of consumption, and that when he heard of his death it excited no surprise on his part. The bruises which had been alluded to as visible about his head and face were such as he supposed might be pro
