LEICESTERSHIRE.

A number of principal breeders from dif-
ferent narr« of the kingdom, attended at the
late sale of tke capital stock of breeding
ewes of the Leicester kind, the property of
George Penrice, esq. It was universally
admitted that one hundred sheep so truly
d^elknt and valuable, were never before
'ftfTouglit to the hammer ; an instance' and
proof which stronzly corroborates andesta-
BUpfaes.the prevailmg opinion of the late
Mr. BakewelL It was the regular practice
of Mr. Penrice to hire hi& rams of Messrs.
'Stones, without objecting to proquinquity
of blood, and.no doubt is now entertained
that if this principle were more generally
attended to, the breed of sheep in general
'Would not fail to be brought to a state- of
grea^ter perfection.

NORFOLK.

The management of the workhouse la
Norwich, according to some contemporary
prints, has long been the opprobrium <J
that opulent city, and a copious source of
painful emotions to many nf the humane,
virtuous, and re:pectable citizens. In this
workhouse, the &eat olf pain and misery, in-
flicted by cruelty and depravity, it is plain
that health and life cannot be highly eatir
mated, when it is considered that a Mortality,
tbocking to ruery humane fcelinv is suffered tO.
prevail, in consequence of filth and of ne-
glect on the part of the governors, as well
as of the dreadful prevalence of the sipall
pox. It should be recorded, however, to
the honmir of Edward Rigby, e^q. the pre-
>ent mayor, seconded by tfic worthy chief
magistrate, professional gentlemen of the
city, and other benevolent and patriotic
character^, that a plan has been adopted
for the purpose of exterminating 'tJie small
poz, by the newly introduced mode of vac-
cination. It further appeac, t]i«it Mr.
Rigby, the mayor, has long been endea-
vouring to eifccc a thorough reform in the
abominable sy tern of the workhouse, to
introduce cle:inline:^s, vaccination, and a
medical conunittce. Mr. Rigby is himself
a surgeon of the first rank and abilities, ah .
a.s;£ertion which the present :ktate of the
Norwich ho-pital te tifies. In the month
of July la»t, twenty-nine per*ons, all cliil-
dren, were ill ^ the small pox at one time
in the Norwich workhou.e, and were inter-
mixed with the paupers throughout the
suite of rooms, seven in number. Twenty-
nine other children, who had not been uf«
ilicted with the sJiiall pox, were in the very
same rooms, and had been to long expo ed
to the contagion, that they could not be se-
cured from It either by removal or inocula-
tion — ^the deplorable con equencs of which
'wa<, that most of them catthed the di>ease
in the .>cqMel,ar.d eight 0/ thcxn died within
tlie course of the >aid month ! I'he poor
hou>es at Lynn and at .^yl^hani form a
most striking contrai^t in their nianagen.crit
ahd domestic economy to the one at Xoi>p

rant; tKe ^uAdingt are well constnieted;
the rooms spaciooi and loft]r> well Tentilatej*
ft&d remaHiably clean ; the diet is rtuWmtt.
■nd the ^tate and comforu of the poor in^
Dabttant) are well attended to in this re-
ipect In the workhouse at Norwieh, one
species of pvmshment has long been prac-
tiwd, whicn would reflect disgrace upon a
vbTchold: this is the. placing an iron col-
bur, called a yoke, round the neck for some
yetty offence ; thb yoke has four prcjccting
prongs, secured by a large clunosy iron pad-
lock; upon one leg a strong iron rinr is
fastened near the ancle, like a hand-cuC to
%h2ch is attached a ma>&y chain, about four
ftet five inches in length $ and at the end of
this chain is a log of Wood, two feet seven
inches in length, and two feet ten inches in
circumference, weighing altogether, horrid
to say, twenty-two pounds ! Wi:h this in-
Mimbrance, thus atuched, the sufferer is
obliged to sleep every night. Mr. Keild,
/who lately inspected this wdk-khousc, saw
o6e boy who had been in a state of punish*
ment with the yoke constantly round his
beclc for three weeks. Mr. Neild requested
the mayor to order these irons to be taken
off; and although it was alledged that the
Iboy had been frequently sent to the city
bridewell for petty thefts, and Was called
incorrigible by the governors of the work-
hottbc, vet it appeared from the bridewell
W>ks tor ten years past, which Mr. Ncild
examined, that the boy was 'ent to bridewell
for two dayii, not for thefc, but for running
awa^, and that he had never been in custody
there either before or ^ince. It »hould fur-
ther seem that the boy was not incorrigible ;
for, as Mr. Nctld observes, ** he had both
sen>e and gratitude to come running after
the mayor and myself, and thank us feeling-
ly for his deliverance." ,

The vame gentleman has, since the year
1771, three times vi>ifed the diffcrenUfaols,
prisons, and places of confinement of all de-
scriptions in this kingdom, at his own very
considerable expence ; and to hi; representa-
tions, ^ded by the humane 'exertions of Dr.
Letsom, are principally to be attributed
their present miprovin^ state. Mr. Neild
is treasurer to the Philanthropic Society,
instituted in the year X77a, for relieving
persons confined for small debts; from
Iftrhidi period to the year x8o2, 190^3 debt-
ors, who had XX399 "^ves and 31S7X chil-
dren, have been loosed, and let go to enjov
the sweets of society as.herrtofore. Although
Mr. Keild has outlived Mr. Howard, yet it
is well known that he was the precursor of
that venerable character, and stimulated
Howard by his owp example !
