Immediate assistance was rendered, and Mr Amory, surgeon, promptly attended from this city; Mr Smith was bruised and the shock received, severe; Miss S. also suffered from bruises, but in neither case was any bone broken, and it is hoped the injuries will not be attended with any bad effect; the sons escaped with slight injury, and the whole were enabled to be taken home in a carriage. After the accident the horse, dragging the phaeton on its side, continued its course, and feeling the weight of the carriage on the level ground soon fell into its regular course of a steady trot, in which state it was stopped near the Red Cow turnpike-gate, without further mischief.

On Saturday, an Inquest was held by James Partridge, Esq. one of the Coroners of this county, on the body of FREDERICK STRONG, of Crediton, aged about eight years, whose death was occasioned by falling on some working tools in his father's workshop (whilst playing with his little brothers), by which his skull was fractured in a most shocking manner, which caused his death. Verdict, Accidental Death.
Monday evening a fire broke out in the premises of MRS BLATCHFORD, of Crediton, roper, whilst her establishment were employed at their work; it is supposed to have originated in the snuff of a candle falling on a large quantity of flax, which instantly catching into a blaze, burnt with great fury. However, from the prompt attention of the two fire-engines, and the unremitted exertions of the fire-men, the devouring element was happily extinguished, but not before it had entirely consumed the work-shop where it commenced.

HAYDON v. HAYDON - This was a case which had excited much itne3rest, and many persons were present for the purpose of hearing it. The complainant is an aged female, widow of the late MR NATHANIEL HAYDON, of Crediton; and the defendant, Mr WM. HAYDON, of the same place, her step-son, and for whom Mr Pring, solicitor, Crediton appeared. The charge was an assault on the previous Sunday, at Newton St. Cyres, and arising out of the following circumstances:- At the death of Mr Nathaniel Haydon, he bequeathed to SUSANNA, his wife, the house in which they had resided at Crediton, together with all the furniture it contained; part of a garden, hot-house &c., for her use during her life; the furniture &c. being to be made use of only on these premises; and at her death, the whole to descend to Mr Wm. Haydon, his son by a former marriage, his heirs, executors, &c. For the purpose of this will being duly observed, at the death of Mr Nathaniel Haydon, an inventory was taken, and it was upon this document, and his father's will, that Mr Wm. Haydon rested his defence. Having had reason to believe that the house was despoiling of the goods, he received information in the forenoon of Sunday, the 5th instant, that his mother-in-law, who had gone to reside in Exeter, had returned to Crediton, and taken off in a car, sundry articles of furniture, which his father's will expressly provided should be used by her only on the premises in Crediton, and which he looked upon to be his property. Taking, therefore, legal advice, he, accompanied by a peace-officer, set out in pursuit, and overtook the car at Newton St. Cyres. He demanded that the articles should be delivered up for the purpose of being replaced in the dwelling-house at Crediton. This she refused and when the officer proceeded to perform his duty by taking it, she most manfully resisted. This, in a village, and just at church-time, of course made no small stir, and in the struggling a large glass was shattered to atoms. The part, took, which Mr Haydon took in the affair, constituted the assault now complained of. The old lady's plea was, that these things being her's for life, she had a right to their use, and having taken lodgings in Exeter, she was about to remove there thither for her own purposes, and when she returned to Crediton, as she meant to do, these would also accompany her, and be restored to their proper situations in the house: and further, she pleaded, that if there was waste or damage, her executors must be answerable. For the defence, Mr Pring put in the probate of the will, and the inventory, and contended that his client had done nothing more than what he was entitled to do, which was in a lawful manner to obtain possession of property that, was most clearly his own, and the taking off of which by the complainant, bore more the character of a robbery than anything else. This he had endeavoured to effect by means of a peace-officer, and in the quietest way possible; and whatever there might have been otherwise, had arisen out of the complainant's own illegal resistance. Indeed, he was in a situation to show that the house at Crediton had been gutted of furniture to the amount of several hundred pounds, and trusted the Court would think with him, that his client had not over-stepped the mark, or done aught that he was not fully justified in doing.
The Bench held that in their opinion Mr William Haydon had done nothing that he was not justified in doing, that whatever of assault there might have been, had arisen out of the complainant's own improper conduct, and therefore dismissed the complaint.

Fire - At Crediton, on Sunday forenoon last, whilst the inhabitants were at Church, they were alarmed by the cry of Fire; a sudden rush to the doors took place, when it was quickly discovered to have occurred at MRS THOMAS'S, baker, in the West Town, from whose furze-house the flames were seen issuing with great fury. The two town engines were quickly on the spot; the Sandford engine and that of the Messrs. Davys, of Fordton, were also soon there. All were worked and directed with good effect by the prompt assistance of able hands for about four hours, when the devouring element which had raged with unabated fury was overcome and arrested in its progress. We are happy to state that it was confined almost to the back premises, viz., the flour room and furze house of Mrs Thomas, and the workshops and back premises of the Messrs. Thomas, builders; the frontage suffering but little. Fortunately the principal timber warehouse of the latter was most miraculously preserved tho' almost surrounded by fire. We are happy to learn that the property is insured.

THOMAS v. THOMAS - The rest of the day was devoted to the cause Thomas v. Thomas, brought to try the right of the plaintiff to have a certain drain opened, which had been stopped up by the defendant. The parties who are inhabitants of Crediton, are related, the plaintiff being the widow of the defendant's brother. They occupy property adjoining each other, and the subject matter in dispute was of very little value apparently. There was a "drain way" between the two, into which the eaves' droppings from either premises were poured. The defendant having rebuilt his premises, in consequence of the recent fire at Crediton, ran his wall along the line of the drainway close upon that of the plaintiff - having exceeded his space to the extent of a foot, and built over the entrance to the drain in question. Plaintiff's case was conducted by Mr Barstow, and Mr Butt - Defendant's by Mr Earle, and Mr Crowder. The jury found for the Plaintiff, with leave for Defendants to move to enter a non-suit upon some points reserved.

Devon Assizes - Thursday
This morning Mr Justice Coleridge took his seat at 9 o'clock, when WILLIAM DART, 60, who can read, was arraigned on a charge of having on the 12th day of May last, at a place called Woodland Down, in the parish of Crediton, maliciously set fire to his dwelling-house and premises, with intent to defraud and injure the Norwich Union Fire Insurance Company. To which in a firm voice the old man pleaded not guilty. For the prosecution appeared Mr Kekewich, and Mr Elliott. Attorney, Mr T. E. Drake, Exeter. For the defence, was Mr Cockburn, - Attorney, Mr M. W. Harvey, Moretonhampstead. The case had excited great interest and the Court was crowded to excess. Mr Kekewich called:
AMUEL MADGE, a boy, who said, I'm an apprentice to Mr Ward at Crediton: I remember the 12th of May last; on that day I was at work in a field of my master's, Ford and Morrish were at work in the same field with me. I know the prisoner Dart, and knew where he then lived: his house was from 25 to 30 land yards from the field in which I was at work. At 12 o'clock on that day I turned out the horses, I then passed by and saw that the back door of Dart's barn was shut: the barn adjoined his dwelling-house. I returned to this field again to work with Morrish and Ford in the afternoon, and about 3 o'clock saw a fire at Dart's house. Ford and Morrish were in another part of the field, and I went and called them. I also went and called some other men. I saw Ford and Morrish run up to the house. I heard nobody cry fire, before I cried fire myself.
Cross-examined by Mr Cockburn: 'Twas 3 o'clock to 5 minutes when I first saw the fire. I know it was that time because Ford and Morrish had made a bet of a quart of cider, what 'twas, Morrish bet that 'twasn't more than half-past two, and Morrish won. I will swear 'twas more than half-past two, when I saw the fire. Questioned by the Judge: I didn't see any clock: Ford had his watch: I saw the watch. Qu. Can you tell by looking at a clock or watch, what time it is? Madge: No.
Qu. How then do you know that it was half-past, or more than half-past two? Madge: Ford told me what the time was.
Mr Cockburn: My Lord, I trust you will notice this, as the question of time is most material.
The Judge - It may be so, and yet every gentleman at the Bar must know how difficult it is to fix the precise hour or part of the hour of any given event.
WILLIAM MORRISH, examined by Mr Elliott. I live at Woodland-head, in the parish of Crediton, and work for Mr Ward. On Tuesday the 12th of May last, I was at work for Mr Ward, on Woodland Farm, Samuel Madge, the last witness, and JAMES FORD were with me. About 3 o'clock in the afternoon, Madge was unloading earth at the head of the field, we were at the bottom. Madge cried fire: we said, where: he held up his hand towards Farmer Dart's house. I dropped my shovel, and ran towards Dart's house: when I got there I found the barn all to a blaze inside: the barn doors were fast, but it was blazing through the chinks: the roof of the house also was burning. I went into the house, and when I came there I saw Farmer Dart coming to the head of the stairs with a bed-tie in his arms. The prisoner said to me, the Lord have mercy upon me, Will. Morrish, what shall I do. I said, Farmer Dart, don't hurry youself, wee'll try to get out what things we can. I assisted in getting out the things. James Ford came close after me, and next the two Madges: SUSAN CHUDLEIGH came just after, and then TREPHENA PERKINS. I asked Farmer Dart where his wife was. He said she was gone to her daughter's. I asked him how it happened. He told me he couldn't tell: he told me he had been to Crediton Fair to sell his cow, but couldn't, and when he came to the rise of the hill coming back, he saw the smoke coming out of the top of his house. I asked him what he had done with his cow. He said he had left it in the road. I asked him if his property was insured. He said no; but just afterwards Mr Reed came, and asked him, and he told him 'twas insur'd. He kept a cow, and used to keep a pig, but I did not see any pig there then. I saw in the barn some furze burning: it was in the middle of the floor. I heard Farmer Dart say he had put 7 or 8 faggots there himself a morning or two before. It was 30 or 40 feet I suppose from the floor to the top of the roof, but I am no great judge. I had not passed the prisoner's house that day unless in going to work. When I came to the place on the boy's giving the alarm, the fire seemed to have been burning for some time, 'twas of such a head. It was all one roof, the house and the barn: it was originally intended for two cottages, but Farmer Dart made one of them into a barn.
Qu., by the Judge: I had not heard any cry of fire before the boy cried fire.
Cross-examined by Mr Cockburn: It was 3 o'clock to five minutes up or down, when the boy cried fire: I know it was about this time, for Ford had taken out his watch at half-past two. Farmer Dart was coming over the stairs with a bed-tie in his arms when I got into the House. I suppose he was bringing it down for the purpose of saving it. The bed-tie was on fire in two places: I consider the man himself was in danger from the bed-tie being burning. I should think it looked more like a man who was trying to save than destroy his property. He said Lord have mercy upon me, what shall I do. He appeared a good deal hurried. It was three o'clock in the day, and his house not above a land yard and half from the public road, where persons were frequently passing. I know the prisoner, his wife and son live with him: his son goes out to work: his daughter lives about 3 miles off: Crediton is about 4 miles from his house: it is accounted 5 miles to the Church-gate, but 4 miles to the head of Crediton town. When I came to the house the door was open leading to the kitchen: the barn door was fast: I saw the fire in the barn, through the chinks in the door: the barn door was forced open with an iron bar. I have known Farmer Dart, I dare say four or five and thirty-years, he always bore an honest good character for any thing that I heard.
Re-examined by Mr Kekewich: Farmer Dart's house was about a land yard and half from the road: the end of the house came to the road, the front of it to the garden plot: the prisoner could have seen me coming towards the house. There was no communication between the barn and the house without going out of door.
Qu., by the Judge: Was this a lone house, or were there cottages near? It was a lone house, there were not any others within sixty land yards on one side, and there were five cottages, and on the other side about the same distance, three houses. The road that passed by the house was the public road from Cheriton Bishop to Hewford and Crediton. The fire took place on Tuesday the 12th of May, Crediton Fair-day. It is well attended fair, people come from Cheriton Bishop and those parts to it: some come that way, and some go the other road: it is a cattle-fair and for all kinds of things. I couldn't see the road from the field where we were at work. We couldn't from the field look into the road.
JAMES FORD. - Examined by Mr Kekewich. I am a labourer, living in the parish of Crediton: on Tuesday the 12th of May last, I was working for Mr Ward: two persons, Madge and Morrish, were at work with me: we were at work in a little sideling field. I heard no one cry fire, I saw the fire in Farmer Dart's house: we ran towards it, I was after Morrish. I saw Farmer Dart in the stair case bringing down a bed tie: the roof was all on fire. I didn't look into the barn as we ran along. The prisoner has two children, and his wife: his son lives at home with them: his daughter does not: I saw nobody but Dart and Morrish when I came: I saw nobody in the road or that part of the road. I didn't see any cow or pig there. After the fire had got so a-head that we couldn't go into the house, Farmer Dart said 'twas a very bad job. I asked him where his pig was. He said sold and gone. He said he was up to the top of the hill when he saw the fire, and left his cow in the road. He said some one must have set it on fire.
Qu., by the Judge: The house was under the hill, on the plain: the hill is called Cold Bannick Hill, it is three or four score land yards above the house. I did not remain 'till the fire was all over: I stopped 'till the roof of the house and barn had fallen in, and nothing more could be done, and then went to work again. I had no other conversation with the prisoner.
Cross-examined by Mr Cockburn: The fire was all to a flame in the roof when we came, but I didn't see any fire in the lower part of the house: I know the prisoner's field, but I don't know whether the gate of it was open at this time or not. I didn't go up that side of the house. I know it was 3 o'clock to 5 minutes up or down. Farmer Dart's house was from 4 to 5 miles from Crediton, it would take an hour, or hour and half to drive a bullock that distance. I have known the prisoner several years: he has been dividing the fields, and had lately built these premises.
Re-examined: I had my watch with me. The fire was running all along the roof when we came.
TRYPHENA PERKINS - Examined by Mr Elliot: I live at Woodland Down, two or three fields from the prisoner's house: I recollect the day on which his house was burnt. I was weeding in a field on a hill, one field from the Crediton road; a garden parted it from the prisoner's house. Susan Chudleigh was at work with me. We could see part of the prisoner's house. I know the field in which the prisoner keeps his cow. We went to dinner that day at 1 o'clock: I did not look into the prisoner's field as we went. We had not stopped for our half hour in the forenoon, and, therefore, stopped an hour and half now. We did not return to our work till what we considered half past 2 o'clock, and it was just after we came out again that we saw the fire. I cannot tell how long after: I can't say any time. I saw the bullock in Farmer Dart's field, just before we saw the fire: this was the first field from the premises. We saw the fire before we heard the cry. We heard the cry after. I ran and called more people.
By the Judge - I don't know whose bullock it was that I saw; I don't know whether it was a cow or an ox, or who it belonged to. It was just opposite Farmer Dart's house. I had not seen the cow there before that day. I went and called Farmer Lee's folks at Hill; they went to the fire; there were a great many people there. I heard Ford ask Farmer Dart, where his pig was. He said, it was sold and gone. I have seen the pig since; about a month since; it was sold to his son-in-law; his daughter told me she bought it of her father.
Cross-examined by Mr Cockburn - Morrish and Ford were at work on the other side of the house: Dart's field was on the same side of the house on which we were at work. I didn't look particularly into the field when we went to dinner. There was a hedge and trees between his house and the field in which we were at work; I don't know that I had looked at the house just before I saw the fire. Farmer Dart has been a neighbour to me four years, I never heard any harm by him.
By the Judge - I saw the fire before I heard the cry; the cry seemed up towards the house. The field we were in was rather nigher Crediton; I know the field in which the men were at work, that was on the other side; the house was between me and them.
SUSAN CHUDLEIGH, examined by Mr Kekewich: - I am a widow, and live at Woodland farm: On the 12th of May, I was at work with Tryphena Perkins, for Mr Francis. It was a little after we came back from dinner that I heard the cry of fire. I looked up and saw the smoke: the cry came from a direction nearer the prisoner's house. I went over the gate to go to the prisoner's house; the gate was fastened; I saw a bullock in the field; I don't know whose it was; it was a cow, I milk'd it in the course of the day, and carried the milk and strained it, at one of the cot houses at Woodland. The prisoner's wife asked me to milk it, and I gave the milk to her. The prisoner was present when I milked the cow. I had seen the cow before, but can't tell how long. I had not been in Farmer Dart's field before that day.
Cross-examined by Mr Cockburn: The prisoner had only one cow. I don't know whether there were gaps in the hedge; the gate of the field had no latch; it is kept fast by a little rope that goes over it.
Re-examined: I saw the cow before I heard the cry of fire; I can't say that was the same cow I milked.
By the Judge: I was not in the prisoner's field either going to or coming back from dinner. I saw a cow in the field before I heard the cry of fire; Tryphena Perkins said, look there's Farmer Dart's bullock come home, and I looked up and saw it.
ELIAS TREMLETT WARD, examined by Mr Elliott: - I am a farmer, and live at Langridge, about three miles and half from Crediton. I know the prisoner Dart; I have known him about nine years. My uncle, MR WM. WARD, some time ago let him 15 acres of land; it consisted of two fields, and half an acre of down or common adjoining. There was a lease executed; I have the counter part. The prisoner has since built al house on the land. My uncle and myself have received rent from him for three years I think. In April 1834 I received £9, a portion of £15 a year, which was due the Lady Day twelve months before. The prisoner had previously paid his rent regularly, - that is, I should observe to the Court, always keeping 12 months rent in hand. At the following Christmas he paid me £6, so that at Lady Day last, there was two years rent, or £30 due. This last payment of £6 I think was on the 24th of Dec., and I then had a conversation with him on the subject of his arrear of rent. I told him I would not suffer the rent to remain in his hands to the extent that my uncle had done; that is not to permit him to hold 12 months rent in hand, but that I should expect by Lady Day he would pay up his arrears, so as at that time to have a year's rent only in hand, which was the plan on which we must proceed in future. He appeared vexed, and said he had been laying out money in labour upon the place; - forming hedges, and building, but did not make any other observation. At Lady Day I called on him, and found him in his garden; I asked him when he was coming down to pay the rent that was due. He said that at the Crediton April Great Market he would pay me all, I was rather astonished, and gave him to understand that if he did not then fulfil his promise, I should prosecute or sue him. I told him I was well aware he could not carry on the farm in the way he was going on.
Qu. by the Judge: I gave him time to the April Great Market. When I spoke to him on the condition of the farm, he said he had been laying out money in labour and building, and hoped in future to be able to keep up his rent. I recollect the fire on his premises; I live about three quarters of a mile from the place he occupied. On the fire occurring the prisoner never came to me. The first time that I saw him afterwards was the following Saturday morning, when I passed him on the road, as I was going to Crediton. On the same morning a man of the name of Hawkins had come and made a communication to me. The prisoner's house had been built about 4 years I think. After the April Great Market, I had called several times at his house, but never could see him at home. I saw his wife on the morning of Monday the 4th of May. The lease was now put in by Mr Elliott.
Mr E. T. Ward: This is the lease: it was granted to the prisoner by my uncle Mr Wm. Ward, and I am an attesting witness. I saw it executed on the 4th of Dec. 1830 - On being read it was found to contain a covenant to build, and to keep the buildings in repair. And Mr Cockburn called the attention of the Court to the fact that there was no exception in case of accidental fire, so that in the event of misfortune of this kind occurring, it was incumbent on the prisoner to rebuild, under pain of forfeiture of his lease.
Me E. T. Ward, cross-examined by Mr Cockburn: The premises consisted of a dwelling house and barn under one roof; these have all been built subsequent to granting the lease; they were of cob - al mixture of mud and straw; I am not aware how long they were building, as I was absent about 4 years ago; I returned, I think, in August, 1831, but I may say it never was completed as a building, nor was the timber made use of, such as it ought to have been. The prisoner and his family resided in it certainly. I have know the prisoner about 9 years; he has always borne the character of an honest man. I know a man of the name of Hawkins, and have employed him; the last time he worked for me, was, I think, 6 or 7 months ago; he had worked for my uncle 6 or 7 years; I never turned him away, but he ceased to work for me because he could get better wages than I thought proper to give. The son of the prisoner Dart, has done the work for me since which used to be done by Hawkins. Dart's son came from Exeter, where had had been working, and asked me for work.
Re-examined by Mr Elliott: Dart's son has not had so much experience in his business as Hawkins certainly, but I think he can do as good a day's work. He has been in the line these 3 years.
MATTHEW HAWKINS, a man with one hand, examined by Mr Kekewich: - I live at Crediton, and am a gardener; I have lately been, and was in May last, working occasionally for the Rev. M. Trevenen, at Drewsteignton; I have worked there many years. I live about a quarter of a mile from the prisoner Dart's house; I have known him many years. I remember Thursday the 7th of May last; Dart came to my house about 5 o'clock that morning. I was in bed, and my wife let him in. He said he wanted to see me for something very particular; I came down within 2 or 3 minute, and made away to the back door; he said, that won't do, you go to the front door, and I'll go out this way. I went to the front door and he to the back: he then said he'd meet me in Mr Skinner's field; that was just about the same distance from where we were as my house was from his, about 1 ¼ of a mile. We went there in different directions; when I arrived he was not thee; I put my foot on the gate and looked into the next field, but could not at first see him; I did afterwards see him, and when we were got down about half-a-dozen yards from the gateway, he asked me what I thought. I said, I didn't know. He then said, they are going to sell my property. I asked who. He said Mr Elias Ward; he said he owed £20 for rent, and that Mr Elias Ward had called at his house the day before, to say that if he didn't raise it in one week, he was going to sell all he (the prisoner) had. I said £20 was not a great deal, and asked the prisoner if he could not find a friend to advance that sum for him. He said he shouldn't try; he said his house and property was insured. I asked him for what sum. He said £150. I asked him what he paid annually for that. He told me 12s. 6d. He said he wanted to draw that money. He then asked me where I was going to work that day. I said at the Rectory at Drewsteignton. He then said, if I would come home an hour or two later than usual that evening, he would get everything in readiness, and that if I would put a match to his house and set it on fire, he would give me a handsome reward of two sovereigns. I said I could not do it; I told him 'twas death by the law for a man to do such a thing. He said, then I suppose it does not suit you to do it. I said no. He then said, I wish you a good morning.
Qu. by the Judge: When the prisoner left you, after making such a proposition as this, did you not immediately go to some Magistrate to give information of what he had proposed? No, my Lord.
Examination resumed: On Tuesday the 12th of May, about ½ past seven or a quarter to eight o'clock in the evening, the prisoner Dart came again to me in my garden. I knew the fire had taken place. He came to the bottom of my garden; he took me by the hand and said, my dear friend its all done, but you keep everything close: that was all that past, nothing more was then said, he left the garden and I went into my house. I did not mention this to no one but my wife. The first person I mentioned it to besides my wife was Mr Elias Ward, and that was the Saturday after. I went to his house to inform him of it on the Wednesday evening, but Mr Ward was in Crediton. On the Friday I went again part way for the purpose, but I met John Labbatt, and he told me Mr Ward was in Exeter. I went the third time on Saturday morning, about 5 o'clock, and then told Mr Ward. I have known the prisoner 12 or 13 years, and never had an angry word with him in my life.
Cross-examined by Mr Cockburn: My wife was already dressed when the prisoner knocked on the morning he first came to me; I was not out of bed. My wife went down and opened the front door to him. My reason for going to the door when I came down stairs was, that I thought he had something to say to me that he did not wish my wife to hear. I did not find him in the field he said, but in a field adjoining Mr Skinner's. He did not tell me why he did not set the match himself.
Qu. I believe this is not the first time of your having made your appearance in this Court?
Hawkins: No, it is not.
Qu. Pray how long might it be ago that you were last here?
About 18 years ago.
Qu. Were you then here as a witness?
Qu. As a spectator, perhaps?
Qu. Why what situation were you then in; surely Mr Hawkins, you were not here as a criminal?
I was accused of taking up a bat in the public road between this and Heavitree.
Qu. Why man, upon your oath, were you not charged with robbing a coach?
Hawkins: I was honourably acquitted in ten minutes.
The Jude: Don't talk about being honourably acquitted, or enumerate the minutes, but say you were tried and acquitted.
Mr Cockburn: I see you have had a misfortune with your left hand, pray how was that occasioned?
By the bursting of a gun.
Qu. What, pray, might you be about when that happened?
Shooting a woodcock. The witness here betrayed considerable warmth, saying, I was in the service of Arthur Kelly, of Kelly House, Esq. at the time.
Mr Cockburn: Do you not owe the prisoner money? I believe there is a balance owing to him.
The Judge: Do you owe the prisoner money which you have neglected to pay him?
I think there is a little balance due to Dart, my Lord; he threatened to put me in the County Court, but he hasn't done it: he never gave me a bill. The reason there was any difference between us was that his son was my apprentice, and would not obey my orders, and I discharged him: we had some angry words about that. His son now works for gentlemen for whom I worked before. I never said I would be revenged of him as long as he kept his son in his house, if it was for 10 years. I never said, d-n me if a don't be revenged on them both as long as I live. I never said, as quoting from the Bible, Revenge is mine and I will have it, saith the Lord; and adding to it, and d-n me if I don't if for ten years to come, or as long as I am living. I never used those words or expressions like them. I know Sarah Coneybeare, but I never used those words, or any similar words concerning the Darts, to her in her own house. I never said to Sarah Coneybeare that Dart's son worked under the usual price, and was taking away my work. Sarah Coneybeare never said to me, these are dangerous words, and if any thing was to happen to Farmer Dart, you would be taken into custody. I never made a will - I don't know what a will is. I know Farmer John Haydon; I wrote a note once for him; the note was to dispose of his property. He sent for me then, I did not go to him about it. My wife's name was Endicott; she had the misfortune to have a child before she was married. She used to go to Farmer Haydon's concerning the child after we were married; she wished to take the child herself. I did not go to Farmer Haydon's to propose that he should make a will in favour of this child; upon my solemn oath I did not.
The Judge: Witness, I think it right to apprise you, that if the learned Counsel puts any question to you tending to criminate yourself, you are not bound to answer it.
Mr Cockburn: Will you swear man, that you did not propose to Farmer Haydon to leave his property to this child?
I did not.
Qu. Did he not, authorise you to draw up a paper leaving his property to this child?
Yes he did.
Qu. Now, on your oath, man, did you not make that will in favour of the woman you were going to marry?
The Judge: No, no - stay: if answered in the affirmative, that would be an acknowledgment of having committed a forgery.
Mr Cockburn said, the aged prisoner's life probably depended upon the evidence of this single witness, and he claimed to be permitted to show him to the Court and Jury in a way that should show he was not entitled to credit.
The Judge: Mr Cockburn, you know that it is not the proper method of trying the credit of a witness, to ask him if he has not been guilty of a capital offence. And turning to Hawkins, the Judge said, I advise you to give no answer to it.
Mr Cockburn resumed: Farmer Haydon paid for the maintenance of the child. I was taken before a Magistrate about the child: the child was taken out of my hands by the neighbours; I beat the child, of course. I don't know whether that was after Farmer Haydon had destroyed the will. I did not tie up the child by the neck, with a thong, to the bed: I will swear the child was not so taken tied by the neck, from the bed, by the neighbours. I worked for Mr Ward on the 4th of Oct. last; I had worked for him nearly 7 years before; I then got employment with other gentlemen and got more wages. I wrote the paper as Farmer Haydon instructed me - call it a will if you like.
Qu. Was it not so? It was for any thing that I know.
The Judge here again interposed, and the cross-examination closed.
Re-examined by Mr Kekwich: Farmer Haydon is still living. I don't know exactly word for word what I wrote, but I wrote as he told me. It was 18 years ago that I was tried in this Court. After that I lived 3 years in the service of Arthur Kelly, Esq., after the bursting of the gun, about 12 months as a gardener. I then lived with Harris Arundel, Esq., of Lifton Park, 2 years. Since that I have worked as a jobbing gardener. I have worked one day a week for the Rev. Mr Trevenen, for 13 or 14 years. I have also worked for Col. Truscott. I quitted these places myself, I was never turned away. I was not turned away from Mr Ward's; I quitted his service myself. I could work for him now a day or two if I choose. I left Mr Ward only because I could get more wages. The child I have been asked about was Farmer Haydon's: he took it away from us when the neighbours made up the story about my beating it. The child was then above 2 years old. The debt I owe the Prisoner Dart, is for milk, butter, cider, barley-meal, and different things. I never had a bill. It was 2 years ago that he threatened to put me into the County Court.
By the Judge: When you told the prisoner it was death by the law to perpetrate such a crime as you say he asked you to commit, why did not you also, knowing how wicked it was, endeavour to dissuade him from it?
Hawkins: I thought my words would have that effect.
Qu. Why did you not tell Mr Ward - why did you omit to make all communication of an expressed intent such as this, until after the fire had taken place?
I didn't think of it before.
The Judge: You didn't think of it, but you and he shook hands and parted friends, after he had shown what opinion he had of you, by asking you to commit a capital offence.
Hawkins: Yes my Lord.
ANN HAWKINS examined by Mr Elliott: I am the wife of Matthew Hawkins, the last witness. I know the prisoner Dart; I recollect the morning of the 7th of May last; the prisoner came to my house about 5 o'clock that morning; he came to the back door; I was not down; I came down and went to the back door, but he was not there; he had gone round to the front door, and hearing me, he said here I be. He said, he wanted to see my husband; he called to him himself up over the stairs; my husband came as soon as he cold - not above 2 or 3 minutes. I didn't hear a word that was said; they both went out, Dart to the back door, and my husband to the fore-door. I didn't hear any conversation after they got outside; I didn't see which way they went. I saw my husband again about a quarter of an hour after. I recollect the day of the fire; my husband came home in the evening about 8 o'clock: his supper was not ready, and he went out into the garden behind the house.
Cross-examined by Mr Cockburn: Before I was married, I lived with FARMER JOHN HAYDON. I never went to him on a Sunday afternoon when he was reading the Bible, and told him I was in the family way by him; I never told him that I was with child, and that he was the father. I did not on any occasion take up the Bible, and kiss the book to it, that he was the father of the child. Farmer John Haydon never paid me 15d. a week for the maintenance of the child. I never went to Farmer Haydon's for that purpose, nor did I ever kiss the book to any such thing - that I swear.
Qu., Did you do so at any Farmer Haydon's on a Sunday evening?
Qu. On Farmer John Haydon's expressing a doubt of the truth of what you said relative to his being the father of the child, upon your solemn oath did you not take up the Bible in which he was reading, and kiss it in order to attest the truth of that fact?
No. I did not. I remember the child being taken to Farmer John Haydon's. I never swore it to him -'twas my husband's child. I never told Farmer John Haydon 'twas his. My husband was had to justice, the justice delivered up the child to John Haydon. The neighbours did not take the child from me to John Haydon, but the justice delivered it up to him. Farmer Haydon saw the child out of door, and took it because my husband gave it 2 or 3 tacks on the backside. I said 'twas my husband's child, and would swear to it, but they would not let me. The child's neck was exposed before the justices, but there was no mark. I swear I never received pay from any one for that child. I swear I had no agreement with Farmer Haydon for 15d. a week. I swear I never received any thing from any one for it.
Re-examined by Mr Elliott: Farmer Haydon never paid my husband any thing on account of that child. There was no dispute about whose child it was. Farmer Haydon wished to take it away and keep it himself; he kept it about a quarter of a year. It was then about two years old; it was with me 7 years after that: it is 10 years old now, and out a-apprentice. The parish of Colebrook, to which I belonged, bound it out.
JOHN LABBATT: I work for Mr Elias Ward, and live at Woodland head. I know the prisoner Dart; I know Hawkins's house; I saw the prisoner on the 7th of May, coming from the house, at five o'clock in the morning; I was at work in my garden and saw him go in and come out, it was about a quarter of an hour from the time of his going in till he came out again; he went over the hedge towards Skinner's field. I saw Hawkins the day following the fire, he was going in the direction of Mr Ward's house. I told Hawkins that Ward was not at home, and he turned back.
Cross-examined: I know that it was the morning of the 7th, because of the fire on the 12th following. I have known prisoner ever since he was a young man, and never knew any harm by him.
WM MADGE: I live near the prisoner's house. I was at work within half a mile of the fire: I came to help; I heard prisoner say that he was up on the Cold Bannick Hill when he first saw the fire and he run and halloed fire, and said he thought that no person would come to his assistance. This was three score land yards from the house.
ABRAHAM WREFORD: I am a tallow chandler living at Crediton: I am the agent there for the Norwich Union Fire Office; prisoner came to my house on the 28th of February, to insure his property for £150 - £40 on his house, £40 on the barn and cow house, £60 on his household goods and furniture, and £10 on his farming implements and empty casks - these were the instructions I received; I forwarded them to Mr Hartnoll at Exeter, and through his hands to the chief office at Norwich. The policy came down afterwards. I remember hearing of the fire the day after the prisoner called, and said that he came to inform me of the fire the day before, and wanted to know how he was to order about the policy. I asked him where he was when it happened; he said he left about 6 in the morning to attend the fair at Crediton, that his son went to work before six, and that his wife left about 1 o'clock in the afternoon to go 2 or 3 miles in the direction of Cheriton. He said that going home about three, when passing over Hewford Common, "he saw the flame and smoke as high as the tower; "I asked him if there was any fire when his wife went out, and he said none: I told him either to call or send on Saturday, when I would let him know when our surveyor would be over, and that he must make out a bill of the particulars that the loss might be ascertained. On the Saturday following he came to my shop, and he was asked the question whether he and Hawkins were on good terms and he said they were. Mr Ward and some one else were there. He told me that his premises had never been insured before.
Cross-examined: He did not pretend to me that there had been any fire left in the house which might have occasioned the mischief. [The policy was now put in and read.]
Isaac Preston, Esq. proved the signatures of himself and two other Directors, which were affixed to the policy.
Mr Wreford re-called: The prisoner paid me 14s. 4d. which was the whole that was due; there were some weeks previous to Lady Day, the portion for these I calculated, and the sum he paid, insured him to Lady Day, 1836.
The Judge now informed the prisoner that the case was closed on the part of the prosecution, and this was the time for him if he had any thing to say in his defence.
The prisoner said, It is all revenge of this Hawkins, he and I have been at variance some time.
For the defence Mr Cockburn called,
SARAH CONEYBEARE: I have known Hawkins for many years. He called on me one Sunday evening. He said to me, that Dart's son had left him, and was taking away his work under value; He said he would be revenged of them, if ever it lay in his power. The answer I made was that these were bad words, and if Farmer Dart should meet with any misfortune, he (Hawkins) would be liable to be taken up. He said, it is said in the bible, "Revenge is mine, and I will repay thee, saith the Lord," and he threw his fist down on my table and said, d-n me if I don't have it.
Cross-examined by Mr Kekewich: I don't know Dart much; I have known him ten years. I know it is not two years since this conversation took place. My husband was present, but he won't have any thing to say about it, because he was in liquor at the time that Hawkins came in. Hawkins was not in liquor. After the fire, I told it to a woman of the name of Grant, and on Tuesday last I mentioned it to Mr Loosemore at his house.
Re-examined: As soon as I heard that Farmer Dart was committed to prison through what Hawkins had said, then I told the woman Grant wheat he had said.
By the Court: I think it was about a year ago that Hawkins had this conversation at my house. I did not tell Dart, because I thought nothing of it at the time. Hawkins slept at my house that night, because he was late. I don't know that since this conversation took place, either Dart or his son have worked with Hawkins.
JOHN HAYDON: I am a farmer living at Cheriton Bishop. I knew the wife of Hawkins; she lived several years with me. From what I know of the woman Hawkins, I would not believe her on her oath; nor would I believe her husband.
Cross-examined: I have known Hawkins, both man and wife; she was with child when she was at my house. I had a quarrel with them about the boy; he came home very late in liquor. [The court stopped the Witness]. We have had words, but never any blows. I never asked him to fight; have been on no other than fair terms with Hawkins's wife since they were married.
Re-examined: The quarrel about the boy was this: he was in liquor, and came home late one night and beat the boy [The Judge stopped the witness]. The dispute I had with him was about the child.
By the Judge: I never saw Hawkins nor his wife sworn, no otherwise that she did with me on a Sunday evening. I was reading the Bible, and she said to me [The Judge again stopped the witness by saying, "I must not go into that."]. I have known Dart 50 years - he has borne a very good character.
ELIZABETH MONK; I keep a shop at Crediton. Prisoner came to my house on the 12th of May, and bought a loaf. He had a cow with him. I have known him 4 or 5 and 20 years; he has always borne a very good character as far as I have known. I served him at half-past two; I know that was the time, because I went out when he did, and looked at the clock. My house is at the town's end, about a mile from the Cattle market.
JOHN STONG: I live at Crediton. I saw the prisoner at the Duke of York public-house at half-past two; I know that that was the time, because I had just come from home, and I had looked at my clock. He was drinking either a half pint of beer or cider - he rose up and turned the bullock out of the yard, and proceeded homewards; he lives at the distance of about three or four miles off: I have known him long - he bears an excellent character.
By the Judge: The Duke of York may be about 20 land yards from the shop of Elizabeth Monk.
WILLIAM BROCK, a farmer: I saw him with the bullocks before him at half-past two, I know on the road - when I got home it was nigh three; I have known the prisoner four or five years at least. I never heard that he has borne a bad character.
SAMUEL HAYDON; I am a farmer living near Crediton; I have known the prisoner 40 years; I never heard a "mouthful of harm" of him in my life.
THOMAS ODGERS: I keep the Cornish Arms; I have known the prisoner for many years, and have always found him very honest in all transactions which I have had with him.
JAMES SORRELL: I am a painter and glazier of Crediton; I have known Dart upwards of 20 years; he has borne an excellent character for honesty.
JAMES HILL: I am a farmer in the parish of Colebrook; I have known him all my life, never heard any thing but that he was an honest man.
JAMES HAYDON: examined by the learned Judge respecting the distance of Cold Bannick Hill, but he did not know where it was. Mr Brock was re-called, but he could not tell. Mr Elias Ward was then called, and he stated it was about a quarter of a mile off. His Lordship then asked him the two following questions. Had you communicated to Hawkins, at any time, that Dart owed you rent? Never. That you were going to sell him up or any thing of that sort - to levy a distress upon him? Never, my Lord.
Several respectable farmers were in attendance, to speak to prisoner's character, but the learned Judge intimated that enough had been said on that point.
The Judge now addressed the Jury, laying before them a clear analysis of the whole evidence, and in a manner distinguished for its eloquence, in which he occupied one hour; and having concluded, the Jury turned to consult, and in eight minutes returned a verdict of Not Guilty, when the Judge directed the old man to be immediately discharged.
The Court rising at half-past 9.

Died - On Friday last, the 1st inst., MR WM. UNDERHILL, millwright and engineer; of Crediton, in this county. Mr Underhill commenced business in this neighbourhood about 12 years since, and from that time has had the mechanical department of the whole of the paper-mills in this county under his care.
