Turner, the policeman, going upstairs, a dreadful sight was presented; and Clitheroe, who WHS almost dead from loss of blood, waved his hand in the direction of the other side of the bed. Turner went round the bed and lifted up the bed clothes, and there found the dead body of the deceased, Mary Woods. Her head was al- most severed from her body. Dr. Blundell was imme- diately sent for, and he, in company with Dr. Rigg, shortly afterwards arrived, but it was found that the un- fortunate woman was quite dead. The ceiling of the room and the walls were bespattered with blood, and on the wall over the head of the bed were finger marks of blood. On Dr. Rigg pr< ssing the wound ia his throat, together, he was enabled to say a few words. He said, We made it up to cut our throats, and we did it about three o'cloi k this morning." There is at present no motive assigned why the supposed murderer should have taken the life of the unfortunate woman; but there is scarcely any doubt that he first took her life and afterwards atteryipte(I to t;ke his own. The bedclothes were in a very disturbed state, as if a struggle had taken place; :ind it is staged that it would have been almost impossible for tin; deceased to have placed the bedclothes over her her head after she had received the fearful wound which deprived her of her life. The fact of the back-door of the house being fastened, and Clithcroe's slioes b. ins found at the bottom of the stairs, leads to the supposition that he entered the house of the de- ceased without her knowledge, and that some quarrel led to the commission of the crime. He is at present in custody of two police officers, but will not be removed to the lockups until lie is sufficiently recovered. At a little after six o'clock on Monday eveni.ig he was in a very precarious state, and there were but slight hopes entertained of hia recovery.
