Account of the Proceedings on Tuesday at St. Margaret's-Hill, Southwark:

At Eight o'Clock in the Morning a Party of the Rioters from the New Jail, escorted by a strong Guard, were brought to a temporary Place of Confinement, erected for them under the Session-House, in order to be put upon their Trials. At Nine the Court sat, and proceeded to Business, when Joseph Lovell and Robert Lovell, two Gypsies, were capitally convicted upon the Evidences of William Ives and William Field, for destroying the House and Furniture of Mr. Connolly, at the Two Brewers Public-House in Tooley-Street.
