Newcastle. Dee. 10. The parties
found guilty of an ntterapt to rob tho

had been caused last nlghtby the report
that a'party had been organized In A'ew
York and Philadelphia to rescue, If
possible, the burglars during the night,
and in consequenco about sovetity-fivo
men were placed under arras by the
Sheriff. The attempt, however, was
not made. The gates nf the prison yard
wero thrown open at about 10:80, and
Carter and Hope wero placed In tho pll-
llory. Both bore this part nf their
sentence with great equanimity, and
seemed in no way disturbed, remarking
as tney were released from their uncoin

ping, was commenced. The first man
out was Carter, who received his forty
lashes with stolid ludlfference.and who.
released from the post, walked firmly
and proudly back to the jail. He was
next chained to the stocks, and took
his punishment bravely. The next man,
uiwier, was brought forth white and
nervous, but did not flinch, and looked
defiantly upon tho multitude as thov
jeered upon him. He probably suffer
ed more than either of the others who
preceded him. Hurlburt received tho
rorty lasnes in tuo same characteristic
manner which ho had exhibited on the
pillory, seeming to care little for any
sentence. The excitement over tho
affair is simply wonderful. An extra
train mainly rilled with noted Phlladel

came over about 11 o'clock. All tho
