     He was a Gentleman, not more remarkable for the great Antiquity of his Family, (which has held the Possession of this their Paternal Seat of Hardres-Court ever since the Time of William the Conqueror, with whom one of his Ancestors DE ARDRES came over) than loved and esteemed for his own personal Abilities; his unbiass'd Integrity; his sound Judgement, and deep Penetration. He had the Honour to be chosen Knight of the Shire for the County of Kent in the Year 1711, without Opposition; and afterwards was elected one of the Barons for the Port of Dover; and lastly, for several Parliaments was chosen Burgess for this City; in all which time he serv'd his Country with unblemish'd Fidelity, Steadiness, and Applications; but being at last unhappily disabled from farther Attendance on his Duty, by an hereditary and obstinate Gout, he voluntarily quitted his Seat in Parliament, and died as is above related, leaving behind him the most amiable Character of a disinterested Patriot; a pious and devout Christian; a sincere Son of the Church of England, a tender and affectionate Husband, a most indulgent Father, a very beneficent Master, a pleasant Companion, and a steady Friend.

     He has left Issue by his Lady Elizabeth, eldest Daughter of Alexander THOMAS of Lamberhurst, Esq.; in this County, one Son, now Sir William HARDRES, Bart. in the 19th Year of his Age, and one Daughter, Elizabeth, about Twenty.

On Sunday last the Master of a trading vessel, which laid off the Goodwin Sands, came on shore at Margate where he informed the inhabitants his men had mutinied, and begged their assistance; on which a Margate boat properly armed, went off and going on board the vessel found everything perfectly quiet; in the evening the Master went to the sign of the Ship and engaged for a lodging, but about two o'clock in the morning he drew down the sash and leaped out of the window, which was two pairs of stairs high, and near 30 feet from the ground; from thence he got as far as the Crown, where he was found dead, with eleven guineas and some silver in his pockets. It is supposed he was disordered in mind.

     On Tuesday, died at Margate, in great poverty, Mrs. Ann Emelinda FOSTER, aged 42, author of The Old Maid, a novel and other works. She was the granddaughter of Mr. Henry MASTERMAN Esq., of York, and legal heir to his whole fortune. Her first husband was Mr. SKINN an attorney; her second Nicholas FOSTER, an officer in the army and son of an Irish barrister.

     "She was blessed by nature with a beautiful person, and every shining talent and had every advantage of education. She was the author of The Old Maid a novel and some other works. But such is the instability of all human attainments, that by one false step, before she was sixteen, she so enraged her grandfather that he disinherited her of £3,000 a year. Her second husband forsook her and left her in extreme poverty. For the last ten years of her life she supported herself by her pen and needlework and kept a day school; but ill health, owing to exquisite sensibility and extreme poverty, lately, reduced her to the greatest distress."  [The Gentleman Magazine 1789]

Neither his hair or nails were cut, or his face shaved for the above time. Before he died, his hair reached the floor, and was so matted together from not being combed, that it was as hard and as firm as a board: his nails were about one inch longer than his fingers, curved like a parrot's bill.

EXECUTION OF W. MORGAN & G. SIGGINS.


     On Thursday last William Morgan, aged 28, and George SIGGINS, aged 23, were executed at Penenden-heath, pursuant to the sentence passed on them at the late Kent Assizes. The crime for which Morgan suffered was that of robbery attended with cruelty. On the 9th of June he attacked a poor old woman named NISBETT;  in her cottage, at Erith, and not only took away from her some money, but also beat her in a most cruel manner.  He was convicted on circumstantial evidence;  and though the property taken was but triffling, the Judge considered him a fit object for the extreme punishment of the law, as personal violence, joined to robbery, is an offence which, most wisely, is rarely if ever pardoned.

     George SIGGINS was convicted of an abominable offence.  From the time of their conviction both the prisoners conducted themselves with great propriety.  The Rev. Mr. Argles, chaplain of the gaol, was unwearied in his endeavours to prepare them for the solemn change they were about to undergo.

     Morgan evinced great contrition, and was frequently moved to tears by the exhortations of his pious instructor.He fully acknowledged his guilt, and made a confession of a series of crimes which during the last nine years he had committed.  He expressed a wish that his confession might be made public, it being all the atonement then in his power to make to the world for his past guilt.

     With respect to SIGGINS, though he behaved with great decorum, and was grateful for the kindness of the reverend Chaplain, it is to be feared he was not fully awakened to a sense of his guilt. We understand that he denied having committed the crime for which he was doomed to die, and in that denial persisted to the last.

     On Thursday, about eleven o'clock, the prisoners left the county gaol, and being seated in a waggon, were taken to the place of execution on Penenden-heath, accompanied by the usual officers and guard. When the waggon drew up under the scaffold, MORGAN took off his straw hat with his right hand, and with a very quick motion threw it with considerable force behind him among the crowd.  The Chaplain having ascended the waggon, he joined in prayer with the unfortunate men for several minutes.  The last solemn duty being performed, the reverend Gentleman shook hands with them, and having left them they were resigned into the hands of the executioner.

     Morgan first mounted the platform.Before leaving the waggon, he exclaimed to the spectators "God bless you all my lads."  While the rope was adjusting round his neck, he several times requested the executioner would not shorten it too much.  SIGGINS being placed under the fatal beam, he being a very short man, the executioner found it necessary to place him on some steps:  before the rope was finally adjusted on the neck of Siggins, Morgan said to the executioner, "Leave plenty of slack, mate, you need not be afraid of our runing away."  The dreadful preparation being completed, SIGGINS said with a firm voice, "With the assistance of Almighty God we will sing a hymn, if he will give us strength to do it."  He then opened a paper, in which was written a hymn, and he and Morgan joined their voices in singing it.  The hymn being concluded, Morgan said to the spectators, "I hope this will be a warning to you all, God bless you all," the caps were then pulled over their faces, and they prayed very fervently till the withdrawing of the fatal bolt deprived them of existence.

     Morgan appeared to suffer little, but SIGGINS was very much convulsed for several minutes.  After hanging the usual time, the bodies were conveyed to Maidstone church yard, where they were interred.  And here we cannot help noticing a circumstance, which has been much and deservedly reprobated.  The clothes of persons executed being considered the perquisite of the executioner, the coffins of these unfortunate men were previous to interment, opened in the chuch yard, and the bodies public stripped.

     The following strange narrative is the confession of William MORGAN: - "I. W. M., now under sentence of death, in his Majesty's county gaol, Maidstone, Kent, Aug. 15, 1817, at the age of 19 enlisted into his Majesty's service as a soldier.  I was first enlisted into the 18th regiment of horse, by one John Kesur, at Woolwich in Kent.  I marched from thence to Deal in Kent, at which place I deserted, and made the best of my way to Chatham.  On the road I robbed a man of his watch;  I also robbed a man that was at work in the field of some of his clothes to disguise myself.  I went to Chatham, and from thence to Upnor, where I went to brick-making for 3 months.  From thence I went to Chatham, and on the road I robbed a man of his pocket-book, which contained a sum of silver, and one gold ring.  At Chatham I enlisted into the Sussex militia.  I remained at Chatham with the regiment two months, and from thence we marched to Sheerness, at which place we remained four months, and from thence we marched to Harwich, in Essex.  There we remained six weeks, and from that marched to Molbrough in Leices-shire [sic].  I remained there 5 weeks, and then volunteered into the 39th foot, and was marched to Weymouth in Devonshire [sic].  I remained there 3 weeks, then deserted the second time, and proceeded to London.  After my arrival in London, I was impressed and sent on board his Majesty's ship Enterprise, where I remained 6 weeks.  I was then draughted and sent on board the Tower Tender, and down to Sheerness, where I was put on board his Majesty's ship Serious, sloop ship.

In five days I was sent on board the Namur, where I remained three weeks, and was then draughted to the brig Brave Dragon, of 18 guns, on board which I was 8 months cruising in the North Sea.  Receiving some damage, we went into Yarmouth harbour, in Norfolk, to be repaired, and I was sent on board the Utile.  After being on board two weeks, I deserted, and made the best of my way to Grays, in Essex, where I got work at brick-making, and remained 5 months.  But I have to observe I was once travelling from Scotland to London:  It was last March twelve months, and a few miles below Cambridge, I met with a hog-dealer on horseback;  I was concerned in stopping him on the highway, and took his pocket book.  After that I broke into a farm-house, and took from thence divers articles.  I went down into Rothford hundred, and there I robbed a man of his purse, containing some silver:  this was in a by-road.  From thence I went to Woolwich.  There I broke open a china shop, and took to the value of 20L. worth of goods;  and also broke open a chandler's shop near the Warren, taking from thence of bacon and other articles to the value of 11L.  From that I went to Erith, where I remained two months, during which time I committed several small offences.  After leaving Erith, I made up to London, and, on the highway, knocked a man down, and robbed him of his watch and six shillings and three pence.  After my arrival in London, I made no stop, but proceeded to the Black Lion, Bayswater-fields, and got work at brick-making:  there I left my lodgings, and took with me a suit of clothes that were not my own, and returned back to London.  In Marylebone lane I went to work for one Mr. Weller, and, after stopping three months, ran away from him.  I went to Paddington, and entered a baker's shop, and took from thence a large pie, not cooked;  I took it down Turpin-lane, and there had it cooked.  From that I went to Greenwich, and there robbed a man of 28L.I went back to London with my booty, and spent it in East Smithfield, and then went to Yalding, in Kent, broke into a watchmaker's shop, and took from thence to the value of 100L. in goods.  I went to London with my booty, and from London came back to Greenwich, where I broke open a cook's shop, near the Brown Bear, and took from thence to the value of 10L. in goods.  About two months after I broke into a small chandler's shop, near the Park, at Greenwich, and took to the value of 1L. in goods.  I also entered a watch-box, and took from thence on gun, one pistol, and the watchman's rattle.  I also broke into a dwelling-house near the Ship and Billet, at Greenwich, and took to the value of 5L. in linen and other articles.  From that I went to Eltham in Kent, where I broke into a watchmaker's shop near the Church, and took from thence 7L. worth of goods.  I also broke into an eating-house, and took the value of 1L.  From thence I went back to Greenwich, and near the Brown Bear robbed a man of 2L. in money.  I then went back to Erith, where I engaged on board his Majesty's sloop the Active, and after a voyage to sea of eleven months, and after my return to London, was discharged and went home to Erith, when I went to work for Anthony FLETCHER for three weeks.  From thence I went to Woolwich, where I enlisted into the Royal Horse Artillery, as a gunner, and after serving six weeks again deserted, and went to Southend, Essex.  There I got work at brick-making for four months, and then broke into a gentleman's house near the Terrace, and took from the said house clothes to the value of 3L.  I went from thence to London, and got work on the Prince Regent's canal for three months.  I then went towards Chatham.Going over Shooter's-hill, I was stopped by a party of soldiers, and taken back to Woolwich, sworn in as a deserter, and received 300 lashes.  I was sent to the Hospital for twenty-four days, and when I came out joined my troop, with which I remained seven days, when I deserted the fourth time, and went to Southend.  I remained there five months employed in brick-making and thieving.  I there stole a fat hog out of the field near the brick-field, and also broke into a gentleman's hall at Grays, in Essex, and in the town of Grays stole another hog.  After that I went to London, and shipped myself on board the Asia, and went sea for eighteen months, at the end of which period I was paid off at Chatham, and then went to Erith, where I committed the robbery for which I am to suffer.  Thirteen house-breakings, either highway robberies, four desertions, and a number of small offences that are not herein inserted, are the horrible crimes of the unfortunate William Morgan".

On Thursday morning a melancholy accident occurred to a very fine girl, between 7 and 8 years old, the daughter of Colonel BOYS, of Gillingham.  The child was reaching to take down a watch, which was placed upon the mantle-piece, when her clothes were drawn towards the fire, and were instantly in a blaze. There was no person in the room to assist her, and she ran to her mother.  The feelings of the parent were so harrowed at the terrible spectacle of her burning and shrieking child, that she fell senseless on the floor; and, before any assistance could arrive, the clothes were nearly consumed, and the cheeks, bosom, neck, body, and limbs of the sufferer were burnt in a most miserable manner.  The pain the poor child endured was so excessive, that nature sunk under it;  and death terminated her sufferings about 28 hours after the accident.

In doing so the buffer of the engine came in contact with the poor fellow's head, striking him with considerable violence, and causing instant death. The dog, as may be expected, was also cut in pieces. The driver of the engine, on perceiving a man on the line, instantly sounded his whistle and endeavoured to stop the train, but the distance being so short it was of no avail.

FRIGHTFUL SUICIDE OF A FARMER.


(From out Corresponent.) On Monday morning, Mr. James PACK, a well-known agriculturist, at Tudely, Kent, committed suicide by shooting himself. From the appearance the body presented it was evident the deceased had put the muzzle of the gun into his mouth, the shot passing out at the back of the neck, and the head being frightfully shattered. The deceased was greatly respected in the neighbourhood where he had lived for a very long number of years, and also by the farmers he was in the habit of meeting throughout the county. The only cause mentioned as being at all likely to have led to his destroying himself, is the fact that he has been very much annoyed lately by a person living in the locality, who has used opprobrious epithets towards him when they have met in public; but it can hardly be supposed that this would have led him to commit such an act. A coroner's inquest will be held upon the body.

DREADFUL SUICIDE IN Kent.


(From our Correspondent.) A very painful circumstance occurred at the Strood Station of the South-Eastern Railway, on Wednesday. A man of respectable appearance, apparently about seventy years of age, had arrived at that station between twelve and one o'clock, and was seen to go down the steps used by the passengers leaving the station. Soon afterwards he was found with a dreadful gash in the throat, which he had inflicted on himself with a razor; and he had also mutilated the lower part of his body in a most frightful manner. He, however, was alive when found, and was taken to the Union Workhouse; but from the serious nature of his injuries it was believed that he could not long survive. He was a stranger in the neighbourhood.

DEATH OF SIR F. P. SMITH.


     We regret to announce the death of Sir Francis Pettit SMITH, which occurred on the 12th. inst. at South Kensington. The event was not altogether unexpected, as the deceased gentleman had for some time been in failing health. Sir F. P. SMITH was born at Hythe, in Kent, on 9th of February, 1808, consequently at his death he had just completed his 66th year. He began life as a grazing farmer in Romney Marsh, whence he removed to Hendon, Middlesex. During his early manhood he constructed numerous models of small boats, for which he contrived various modes of propulsion. In 1834 one of these models, propelled by a screw revolving beneath the water at the stern of the vessel and set in motion by a spring, was found to answer so well that Mr. SMITH deemed the screw to be superior to paddles, which hitherto had been exclusively employed for the propulsion of vessels. He continually improved upon this model, and in 1836 took out a patent for his "screw." In the same year a small vessel of ten tons burden, fitted with the screw, was built; and in 1838 the Archimedes, of 237 tons burthen, similarly fitted, was launched, and proved a great success. The Admiralty after a while adopted the screw in Her Majesty's navy, and private owners shortly recognised its value for the merchant service. Her Majesty, on the recommendation of Lord PALMERSTON, in 1855, granted Mr. SMITH a pension from the Civil List of £200 (Two Hundred Pounds) a year, in consideration of his personal services to the navy, and in 1871 conferred upon him the honour of knighthood; but the recognitions by Government of Sir Francis' valuable and continuous services during the best years of his life but inadequately recompensed him for his distinguished achievement. In 1857, at a public banquet in St. James's Hall, a service of plate and £2,678, (Two Thousand Six Hundred and Seventy Eight Pounds), the result of a national subscription, were presented to Mr. SMITH. For 13 years prior to his death Sir Francis held the post of Curator of the Patient Office Museum, South Kensington.

     A notorious old kleptomaniac, named John BRENCHLEY, has just died in the Canterbury Workhouse. He was 65 years old, and had spent more than half of the past forty years in prison. When searched by the police his house was invariably found to be a perfect store of tools and trumpery articles, which he neither disposed of nor used. His unfortunate habit of appropriation was a mania which imprisonment could not cure, his convictions dating from 1847 to 1886, and the sentences varying from fourteen days' hard labour to seven years' penal servitude.

Ramsgate - Shocking Suicide.


     Joseph CHAPLAIN, aged 33, a journeyman butcher, employed by Mr. C. R. WOOD at his King Street establishment, committed suicide at his residence, 70 Plains of Waterloo, on Thursday evening. It is said that the unfortunate man had lately been worried, owing to having received a notice to leave his employment, but in any case he appears to have been greatly upset.

     In the absence of his wife, between 8 and 9 p.m., he went into the back kitchen and cut his throat with a razor, inflicting terrible injuries, which soon after resulted in fatality. Upon his wife returning a shocking sight met her gaze, and she rushed screaming from the house.

     P.C. ADCOCK, Mr. BROCKMAN, Mr. FOAD and a number of others were quickly on the scene. They found the poor fellow lying on the stone floor covered with blood and with an open razor upon the dresser. Dr. Hemming attended and pronounced the case hopeless, the wound being a very deep one, about 5 inches long; he, however, dispatched FOAD for DR. Hicks, but before whose arrival, however, CHAPLAIN was dead.

     He had evidently made a previous attempt to inflict injuries upon himself, as a distinct scratch apparently made with a razor, also appeared across his throat. Inspector ROSS and Sergeant COX subsequently appeared at the scene and did what was desirable in the way of removing most of the traces of the tragedy. The razor remains in the possession of the police.

     The deceased and his wife, an industrious and respectable woman, had lived together on very comfortable terms and great sympathy is expressed with her on all hands. CHAPLAIN had been in Mr. WOOD's employ for several years. An inquest was on Saturday held by the County Coroner (Mr. R. M. Mercer) and verdict of "suicide whist temporarily insane", was returned.

[In Freebmd - Joseph James CHAPLIN was 32 at time of death.]

EXECUTION OF DALEY AT MAIDSTONE FOR THE BRUTAL MURDER OF HIS PARAMOUR.


     Thomas DALEY, a labourer, was executed at Maidstone Gaol on Tuesday morning for the murder of Sarah Ann PENFOLD, his paramour, at Chatham, on June 4. On the night of that date the parties returned to their house and quarrelled. Heavy blows were head by neighbours, and the woman's voice exclaiming, "Don't, Tom, you will kill me." Finally there was a crash, succeeded by moans.

     The next morning the prisoner told a neighbour that he believed his "missus" was dead. A search was made, and the woman was found in her room lying across a chair nude and quite dead. Her body was shockingly disfigured, and a blood-stained poker was close at hand. Death, it was believed, was due to a violent kick.

     At the inquest the prisoner said, "A better woman never lived, only she was led away by someone in the house." After prisoner had been sentenced to death, and before leaving the dock, he remarked, "I hope God Almighty will give me the power to see her again."

     DALEY took final leave of his father and brother on Monday, but his wife and two children, whom he badly treated, did not go to see him during his incarceration. The condemned man was very attentive to the ministrations of the Roman Catholic priest, and was quite resigned to his fate. He admitted the justice of his sentence, and attributed his terrible position to drink. The condemned man met his fate with a degree of calmness bordering on indifference. He walked to the scaffold with remarkable firmness, and showed a disposition to assist Billington, the executioner, in the final arrangements on the scaffold. Death was instantaneous.

Charlie SMITH

The Margate Punch and Judy Man


     The last of his line, Professor Charlie SMITH, known and loved by thousands of people for his Punch and Judy show, died at his St. Peter's Footpath, Margate, home, on Saturday, after a long illness. He was 66. Mr. Smith who was forced to close his show nearly three years ago, had delighted millions of children with the antics of Punch and Judy during the 45 years he performed on Marne Sands, Margate. But although Punch left the seaside beach scene, Mr. Smith continued to give shows at private parties. The entertainment staged by Mr. Smith had kept to the same basic formula started by his father 64 years ago. It had passed down through four generations of his family and has now come to an end. His career in the Punch and Judy business started when he was only 14 years old when he discovered he could use a schwazzle, an instrument placed in the throat which produces a croaking like sound, of the puppets voices. After only three years practise, he put on a special performance for the Duke of Windsor. Later he performed at fairs all over the country and once took part in a special show staged for children in the Royal Albert Hall. He loved making children happy and was once quoted as saying "Even though there is not much money in this any more, it is worth continuing, just to see the children smile."
