DIED
At the Poor Hoase, in Middlebury, Vt. Friday week, George Sparrow, an Englishman, aged about 46. This unfortunate individual was, by his own confession, one of Thistlewood's coadjutors, engaged in what was called the "Cato Street Conspiracy," which was matured in London some twelve years since; and had for its object the murder of the British Ministry.--The plot, as understood from the public prints of the time, went only to assassinate the King's Ministers while at dinner at the Earl of Harrowby's, and thus obtain a reform in Parliament; but, according to Sparrow's account, other and wide spread mischiefs were contemplated by the conspirators. Several of the traitors were arrested at a stable in Cato street (which was their uniform place of meeting) and executed.--Goerge, with two or three others, narrowly escaped on board a ship and reached Quebec. At that place rewards were soon offered for them; but George saved himself by coming into the States. He has lingered out a miserable life here, being much of the time disordered or stupefied by ardent spirits. He was, however, a man of excellant natural powers, possessed of a singularly retentive memory, and had an almost inexhaustible fund of information.
