BURGLARY AND MURDER. About 2 o'clock on Wednesday morning a shocking murder took place at Bramall, four miles south of Stock- port. A farmer and grazier named James Henderson, aged about 60 years, lived in a farm at Robin's lane, Bramall, called H .rdy'a farm, and about two o'clock in -4 the mording the family were alarmed by hearing the dil. charge of a pistol or gun in his bedroom, and the unfor- nata man was afterwards fonnrl in b.-d with the left half of the upper jaw shot away and lying in a pool of blood, The eldest son says he was awoke at about 2 o'clock in morning by the discharge of a pistol in his father's room, and getting out of bed, he took down a double- barrelled gun that was in his own bedroom. On opening his bedroom door, which is opposite to tho top of the stairs, he saw on the landing, half way down the stairs near a window there a tall man, ai whom he instantly discharged onebarrel of the gun. The man gave vent to an exclamation of pain or alarm, an immediatelv ran down the remaining six steps. Immediately after this his father's bedroom door was opened, and a light being extinguished at the same momeni three men rushed our and wenf down stairs. They found no trace whatever of the men. There are several very mysterious circumstances about the robbery and murder, but which may probably be cleared up hereafter. One is, that no door or window had been broken open, so that, at least, one of the bur- glars must bave been concealed on the premises, to have let the others in, unless by some accident one of the door& J" .r Another of th03e circumstances is, ntht i°g kept ia the ^d which, that A R R murder.
