Isabella Taylor was the first, witnet; SI e said she was a sister of the deceased woman, w >, ,vjts a widow. The child was her illegitimate child by 1 e e mxn Tavior. She last saw her on Wednesdav week ;1'. Berni' ;id- sey New-road. She lived with her hushkud, who had left her seven years ago. She never heard-hira threaten her, but they quarrelled often.

When she saw her sister she said-tir-j ouar- relled very much. Her sister ha(l said e knew Taylor would never murder her because he wa so fond of her. Walter March, 135 M, said: About fiv,, uf .» on Sunday morning, I saw the man Tayl r in the Ber- moadsey New-road, where I was on duty; His throat u was bleeding very much. He tried to bp.-ak bat could not. He pointed down Webb-strct, and I seized him, saying, Show me where this occurred, He took me "to No, 1_ Webb-street, and iu a back room I found three pertions-a woman and child dead lying on' the fioor, and a boy on the foot of the bed. There was a great deal of blood about the room, aud the bov said when I tried to move him, Don't touch me, I'm "dying." I saw no instrument by which the persons had been killed. I did not examine them nor see what injury they had until Mr. Cuolahan came. The man Taylor were taken to Guy's Hospital. By a juryman I heard no cries of Murder or calls for assistance daring the Sunday night. James Bridgman, 13(1 M.: I was on duty in Webb- street on Saturday aight last, but did not hear any cries, for help during the night. I was not called upon until about ten minutes to one by a female, who said, Policeman, the man at No. 12 first floor back room is beating his boy. I'm afraid he is murdering him, they are like groans." I listened at the front of No. 12, and she said, "You won't see, but you'll hear if you corne into my back yard." I did so, and we listened, but could hear nothing then. Gn returning through the house again into the street a man said to me, A man has cut his throat round the corner." I immediately went to No. 12, where I found the door open, and I went upstairs, where I saw polieeman No. 135. The bodies of the woman and child were as he has described them. I ran immediately to Dr. Cuolahan, of the Grange-road, who returned with me. I took the man Taylor to Guy's Hospital. After several other witnesses had been examined, the inquiry was adjourned for a week. Taylor was stilI living last night. His mother visited him yesterday, and he told her not to stay there, but go home and look after the busiuess.
