CAPTURE OF A HUGE SHARK.—A thresher shark twelve feet long was captured off Dover on Friday by some French fishermen. FATAL ACCIDENT AT WYNNSTAY COLLIBRY.— On Wednesday morning a sudden fall of coal took place in the Wynnstay Colliery, Ruabon, and two miners named Isaac Evans and Allen Edwards were severely crushed. It was thought that Edwards had sustained the most serious injury. Evans, however, died in the afternoon at the Ruabon Cottage Hospital. Edwards lies in a critical condition. It was down this colliery that Princess Beatrice went on the occasion of Her Majesty's visit to Wales some years ago. STORY OF DUAL LIFE.—Mr. Ellis Green, of Puckeridge, Herts, is a shoemaker in the day- time, but by night he is supposed to have en- gaged in a more harmful pursuit. A few days since the suspicions of the police having been aroused by his nocturnal habits, he was cap- tured upon enclosed premises under highly incriminating circumstances. Ostensibly Green was the respectable proprietor of a shoemaker's business in the little village, in which, however, for years past mysterious depredations have been carried on. When arrested, the suspect, a grey-haired old fellow of over 60 years, had upon him a skeleton key, which fitted the lock of a general warehouse. He is alleged to have been in the habit of entering these premises at night, and carting off large quantities of goods, portions of which have been discovered in his house. Indeed, the premises were found to contain an infinite variety of articles, which are stated to be the proceeds of hitherto undis- covered robberies in the neighbourhood. On the night of September 11th P.C. Bavihgton watched the old man's proceedings. Green left his house, and by an ingenious arrangement in step ladders scaled walls and fences in the vicinity, and obtained access to his neighbours property. He was very disagreeably surprised when arrested in the act, and attempted to bribe the constable. But when he found that the game was up, he made no secret of his actions. On being charged before the magis- trates he expressed his regret, and romarked that he didn't know as it was housebreaking.' Among his friends and neighbours Green's character had been above reproach, and great was the surprise expressed when his dual character was unveiled. He was on Tuesday committed to take his trial at the Quarter Sessions.
