the new Manchester Stage-Coach

Last Tuesday the new Manchester Stage-Coach arrived in this town with five inside and seven outside passengers; five of the latter were Convicts bound for America; their uncommon appearance in such a vehicle,—the rattling of their chains,—their hallowing and hooting,—the armed men attending as guards, etc., occasioned a prodigious concourse of people to gather around the coach, which gave so much offence to the former, that they positively refused to proceed any further with their fellow-travellers; another coach was not to be got, and the Derby gaoler insisted upon his company being delivered in London at the time agreed for, which reduced the coachman to the necessity of hiring three post-chaises for the felons, in which order they proceeded on their journey.
