Elsworth 13th August Assize Intelligence.
Nutter and Co. v. Nicholls. The plaintiffs, Messrs James and Thomas Nutter and John Eaden, are corn-dealers and merchants at Cambridge; the defendant, Mr James Nicholls is a farmer at Elsworth. The action was brought to recover £66 1s, the value of 30 quarters of barley had from the plaintiffs by a boy in the name of a Mr. Nicholls. It appeared in evidence, that in April last a boy came to Messrs Nutter and Eaden’s yard, and asked for two samples of seed barley which he received, and then went away. On the Thursday following the same boy came with a team, and said he wanted 15 quarters of barley of the best sample for Mr. Nicholls, which he accordingly had. On the following Saturday he came for 15 quarters more, for the same person. Here it will be proper to observe, that the plaintiffs having formerly had some dealings with Mr. William Nicholls, of Childerley, supposed the barley in question was had on his account; and one of the plaintiffs shortly after meeting Mr. Wm. Nicholls, accidentally mentioned the subject; upon which Mr. Nicholls assured him that he had not ordered or received the barley, and that he knew nothing about it. The plaintiffs, understanding there was a Mr. Joseph Nicholls, who lived in Elsworth, sent there, and enquired about the boy who had taken the barley from them; where they leamed, that a boy who lived with Mr. Joseph Nicholls at the time in question, then resident at Staughton; to which place one of the parties (Mr. Eaden) went, where he found the lad, whose name was John Seymour. He at first denied to Mr. Eaden that, he had fetched the barley, but afterwards acknowledged it, and in his evidence before the jury he stated, in most positive terms, that he did receive the barley from the plaintiffs, and that he took it into the defendant’s yard, where the first load was put into the granary, and the second pitched in the barn, in sacks; and that defendant’s men unloaded the waggons both times. On his cross-examination the boy confessed that when he was fetched from Staughton, on coming through Madingley turnpike, he acknowledged to Moore, the keeper of the gate, that he had never been to Cambridge before; but what he then said, he now declared to be false. Four or five more witnesses appeared on the part of the plaintiffs, all of whom stated that Seymour was the person who had the barley in April last, as before stated. On the part of the defendant it was asserted, that the barley was not had by him or by his order, and that the story told by Seymour was false, in proof of which assertion he first called the keeper of Madingley turnpike, who said he recollected a team passing through his gate in April last, and a boy with it, whom he thinks is not Seymour; a man who was with the waggon came up to him at the time, and said it was Nicholl’s waggon, which he denied, as he told him he knew his waggon very well, and he was certain that it was not it. Defendant next called three men whom Seymour stated to have unloaded the waggon, all of whom positively swore that they had not done any such things; that they did not believe the defendant received any barley from Cambridge that year, and as one of them was always about the yard, he must have known if such a quantity had arrived; that the boy, Seymour, could not have been absent with the team without their knowledge; they did not believe him capable of driving a team; and that the defendant sowed his own barley that year, and therefore could not want to purchase any seed barley. The next witness called was a boy named William Bennett, who stated that he lived with Mr. Royston at Long-Stow, and that in April last he was sent by him to the plaintiffs for two samples of barley; that on the following Thursday he was sent for 15 quarters of the barley by the said Mr. R. in the name of Mr. Nicholls of Childerley, which he took to Stow that day, and on the following to the town of Royston, where it was sold; and that on the Saturday he was sent for another load, which he also received.
Here the jury declared themselves perfectly satisfied with the evidence that had already been gone through on the part of the defendant, and accordingly gave their verdict.
Counsel for plaintiffs, Serjeant Sellon and Mr. Hart; Attorney, Mr. Vitty, Cambridge. Counsel for defendant, Mr. Wilson and Mr. Anderson; attorney, Mr. Butcher, Cambridge.

Elsworth July 29th Assize intelligence. Nicholls v. Nutter & Co.
The plaintiff is a respectable farmer at Elsworth and the defendants corn merchants at Cambridge. The action was for recovering a compensation in damages for an arrest and false imprisonment of the plaintiff by defendants, under circumstances of a nature very singular, the particulars of which we detailed in our report of the cases at the last summer assizes, when an action was brought by Messrs Nutter and Co. against Mr. Nicholls. We shall therefore briefly state the leading circumstances mentioned by the plaintiff’s counsel in the opening of this action, which were, that in April 1808, a boy went with a team to the defendants for a quantity of barley in the name of a Mr. Nicholls, which was delivered to him, under the supposition that it was for a Mr. Nicholls of Childerley. A short time after, one of the defendants met the said Mr. Nicholls, and happening to mention the barley, he expressed great surprise, and said there was some fraud or mistake in the business, as he had neither ordered it nor received it; upon which the defendants made inquiry respecting other persons of the same name, and understanding there was a Mr. Nicholls at Elsworth, they ascertained that a boy who lived with him in April 1808 then resided at Staughton, which boy, whose name was Seymour, first denied any knowledge of the transaction, but afterwards said he had fetched the barley from Cambridge, and taken it to the plaintiffs. The servants of Messrs Nutter and Eaden declared that they had no doubt of Seymour being the lad who came for the barley; and under these circumstances they brought an action against Mr. Nicholls, having previously arrested him, for which arrest this action was brought. In the evidence on the part of Mr. Nicholls, as defendant in the former action, it was clearly proved that the boy Seymour was grossly perjured, as another lad, whose name was Bennet, declared that he had fetched the barley in question from Messrs Nutter and Eaden, in the name of a Mr. Nicholls, by the order of Mr. Royston of Longstow, who was proved to have had the barley, and to have sold the same at Royston Market. After the counsel for plaintiff had opened his case, and before he proceeded to call any witnesses, the Chief Justice recommended that the parties should consent to a juror’s being withdrawn, to which they agreed as his Lordship observed that not the slightest imputation could be cast upon the characters of either parties, it being very clear that Mr. Nicholls had no knowledge whatever of the transaction, and that Messrs Nutter and Eaden had been defrauded of their barley by some other person under that name. Counsel for the plaintiff, Mr. Alderson and Mr. Best; attorney, Mr. Butcher, Cambridge. Counsel for defendants, Serjeant Sellon and Mr. Hart; attorney, Mr. Vitty, Cambridge.
