THE ROCHDALE RIOTERS. - Thomas Kershaw and 13 others, woollen weavers, from Rochdale, some of whom had been convicted upon one, others upon two indictments, and others of whom had pleaded "guilty" to the minor offence of breaking into loom-shops, with intent to destroy or render useless certain machinery, were brought up for judgment. M Justice Bayley impressed upon them that their conduct in endeavouring to overawe the masters and compel them to agree to any statement of wages, was illegal and mischievous. He remembered that they were but instruments in the hands of Kershaw, but they ought not to have lent themselves to his improper purpose. The Court would make an example to deter others from treading in their steps. His Lordship then passed sentence of various terms of imprisonment, from three months upon the boys, to twelve months upon the men, and concluded by directing Thomas Kershaw to be transported for the term of his natural life.
