THE FATAL FIRE IN LEADENHALL MABKET. On Wednesday the body of either the oook or house- maid was discovered in the ruins of the Poulterers' Arms, near the bar-door. The remains were so shrivelled as not to be more than three feet in length; the skull was destroyed by the action of the fire. There were present at the time of the discovery Mr. Young and Mr. Crook, surveyors, Mr. Rawston, the coroner's officer, and other officials of the ward, who suggested to the workmen the propriety of having a sheet placed under the body, so that it might be removed from the ruins as de- cently as possible. The workmen, however, with a jeer, said that if they wanted that done they might do it themselves or be d They then in a most dis- graceful manner pulled the- corpse about, dragged off one of the legs and part of an arm. The remains were, however, collected together and placed in a shell, and removed to the dead-house of St. Dionis Back- church, and Mr. Rawston has forwarded the necessary information to Mr. Payne, the coroner, so that that learned gentleman may hold an inquest forthwith. Judging from the position in which the body was found there is strong reason for supposing that the unfortu- nate creature had run from the top of the house to the bar-door, when she was struck down by the flames.
