[ THE MUSWELL-HILL BURGLARY. PRISONERS AT THE POLICE-COURT. A FULL CONFESSION. At Highgate on Monday the men Burdetf, Clarke, South, and Lyster, were' further examined respecting the charge of burglary aad attempted murder at the house of Mr Atkm, Muswell Hill. The interest in the case appears unabated, and a large crowd of persons assembled outside the court. Mr Pollard again prosecuted. The bench expressed the opinion that further evidence about the Bristol burglary was unnecessary, unless a charge was preferred. Mr Pollard said tho evidence showed Lyster possessed a revolver before the Muswell Hill burglary. Mr Sawyer Atkin, recalled, again deposed that one of the fugitive burglars presenting a revolver at bitu, which missed fire.—Sergeant William Nash deposed to tracing Lyster to Southampton, and there arresting bim in bed at the Crown and Sceptre public-house.—John Tunbridgo, inspector, attached to Scotland Yard, deposed to finding a bullet in the trunk of a fir tree at Morton Lees. The bullet baa recently been fired from the window. There was an impression of a man's knees in clayey soil, and Clarke's overcoat was found to have clay soil on it, as well as the vest and trousers. There were smears of blood on the overcoat. He visited Clarke's lodging* with Sergeant Nash, and two of the cartridge cases found there titted the bullets found in the tree, as weil as the bullet extracted from Mr Atkin's chest. Inspector Tunbrids;e stated that he saw Clarke in Holloway Gaol on Saturday. Prisoner made an important statement,which wituoss wrote and prisoner afterwards) signed. This statement ainouats to a full confession of tbe burglary, and fixes upon Lyster and Burdett a full share in the crime. The statement is cir- cumstantial aud apparently truthful. Clarke said be went with Lyster and Burdett to Highgate on the evening of the 8Lh of January. They came to some new houses, and Lyster suggested they should try the house at the comer. They fetched a ladder from some new houses, and Ly.ter and Clarke entered the badroom. They searched the dressing- room, and found a Jubilee four shilling piece and some silver. Before they bad finished soarching tbe room they heard taikiug"outside. Clarke said he weut to the window and saw two men. Lyster told him to gft out. He did so, aud Lyster followed and fired a revolver twice towards them. Lyster jumped to the ground, followed by Clarke. The latter found Burdett, who said "Let us wait for Charley," They waited a moment, and heard a shot fired, and a scream followed. Clarke saw Lyster standing with a revolver in his hand, aud shouting for him to come away. He and Burdett ran. A young man followed and Clarke pointed the revolver at him, but the hammer went down on an empty cartridge. Burdett and Clarke afterwards escaped to Camden Town. They bad found the cashbox at Highgate, and this they broke in pieces as they went home, and threw the pieces away. It only contained two old copper coins. They saw Lyster afterwards at his lodgings, when he said, I have killed two." They all burnt their, boots and the purse which they took and changed their clothes. They visited a neighbouring public-house and changed the four shilling piece. Burdett gave Clarke the revolver to take home. It was evident that Lyster and Burdett were entirely unprepared for tho confession. Inspeci-or Tunbridge said Clarke had appealed through the officials to the Home Office praying for a free pardon if be turued Queen's evidence. After the hearing of the medical evidence the prisoners were remanded prior to their committal for trial.
