EXECUTION AT CHESTER. On Monday morning, at eight o'clock, Harry Leigh weaver, of Macclesfield, was hanged within ther precincts of Chester Castle, for the murder of Alice Ann Hatton, eight years of age at Button, near Macclesfield, on the 31st of March. It will be remembered that the child's corpse was found floating in the canal at Sutton. She had been sent by her mother to the mill for her wages, and it was clearly proved that on her way home she was met by the prisoner, who led her to the canal side and robbed her, then threw her into the water and, as he states in his confession, left her to drown. Since his condemnation he has been very penitent, and thoroughly resigned to his fate. The precession from the cell started a few minutes after eight o'clock, the prisoner walking^ very firltfly, tyad placing himself under the drop without a tremor. Marwood adjusted the rope, stepped behind the culprit, polled a lever, and the wretched man, who was given a drop of seven feet, died almost instantaneously.
