The jugular vein was severed, and the unfortunate woman bled to death in a few minutes. This was the first execution at her Majesty's new prison at Lincoln, and the gallows was so erecle I that the convict stepped out of his cell and on to the scaffold without leaving the premises. Marwood, who I was the executioner, allowed the man a fall of eight feet, and instant death was the result. Anderson, who had been attended by the superintendent of the Wesleyan Circuit, died very penitent.
