The deceased- Henry fThomson Mfas ajBwejier, resiamg in London, weal and in considerable1 business i and. as - was custom of his time, in the habit of personally con ducting his principle transactions with the for eign merchants with whom he traded ; He had travelled much in the couisa of his business in Germany and Holland j and it was td meet jat Hull, a trader of the latter: nation, of J whom he was to make a large purchase, that he had left London before his death; ? It would be proved by the landlord of the irin; where he had resided that he and his corres pondent had been theiej and a wealthy jeweller of the town, well acquainted with both parties, had seen Mr. Thomson after the departure of theDutchmSn ; and could speak positively to -there-being then; in his" possession, jewels of large value, and gold j arid certain bills pf ex change, the parties to which! he; couldj describe. This was on the morning Tlioinson' J,. ture from Hull, on his return to ijondoh, add was on the day but one preceding that on .which he arrived .at the house of the prisoner. What had become of him in the interval could not bs ascer tained ; nor was the prisoner's house situated in the mad which he ought to have taken.; No re-; iiance, however, could be placed on that circum stance; for it was not at all uncommon for persons who travelled with property about them, Vo leave the direct road, even for a considerable' di-ancc, in order to secure themselves a9 effedtually a3 possible from the robbers by whom tHe remote partd ot the country were intested. tie had not been seen from the lime of his leaving Hull tilli hereached the village next adjoini" Smith's house, and the next morning was discovered dead in his bed. He now came to i he rnost ex traordinarjr part of the case lIt would be proved deceas- by poison 'poison of a most subtle na-. ture, most active in its operation, and possessing the wonderful and dreadful quality of leaving no. external mark of token by which its j presence could be detected.
