William Smith, convicted of an unnameable offence. His Honour Mr. Justice Dowling said, that after a patient trial, a jury of his Country had found him guilty of a most atrocious offence, not to be named amongst mankind; he should follow the example of the learned Chief Justice, and forbear polluting the ears of the auditory by referring to the particulars of the heinous offence; all that remained for him then, in obedience to the commands of the law, was to order that the prisoner be taken to the place whence he came, then to the place of public execution, and the to be hanged by the neck until dead (...).
