Robbery, and Apprehension of a Robber. -- Saturday evening. Mr. W.

Mr. Parker immediately returned to Bristol, and acquainted Roberts, the night constable, and Scholes, of Bedminster, with the circumstances; and on Sunday they apprehended Jas. Chard, one of the robbers, at his house in Church Street, Great-Gardens. He is a native of Taunton, six feet high, and stout of proportion. He had not been in custody many hours, before three other persons swore to his having robbed them within the last three weeks. His hat was lined with rope, to protect his head, and he generally wore a white frock. He confessed that he had committed four robberies within the last three weeks, and disclosed the names of his accomplices in robbing Mr Parker, but they have not yet been taken. Chard is fully committed to Ilchester gaol for trial.
