THE WINDSOR MURDER. + A CORRESPONDENT'S CURIOUS STORY. A correspondent who was engaged at Windsor in a journalistic capacity during the Queen's reign celebrations, writes in reference to the murder of Emma Johnson:—"At the time of the recent rejoicings I had to investigate as best I might a number of extraordinary assaults on persons using the road from Windsor to Maiden- head in each case the assailant escaped. The assaults were of such an apparently aimless description that I came to the conclusion they were the work of a maniac. Late one night, while walking to Windsor, near the residence of the Dowager Duchess of Sutherland, where Lady F. Dixie formerly lived, and where by a coinci- dence she was so strangely assaulted some years ago, a man passed me without responding to my Good night/ He passed and repassed me several times. Then he came up in front and stared in my face in a most peculiar manner. I said,, Hallo who are you ?" but he did not answer. He walked off, and returned, and again he did not answer but walked on again. Coming back, he walked by the side of me without speaking. As I was growing a little appre- hensive, I threatened him if he did not get on about his business. At last he dashed off and I saw no more of him. I felt sure at the time he was a little weak mentally. If the Surly Hall tragedy is a lunatic's work, this man is probably the perpetrator. He had a bullet head, was about 5 feet 8 inches in height, was well dressed, and active."
