'---THE BANKSIDE MURDERS.
THE BANKSIDE MURDERS. Examination and Committal of the Prisoner. The prisoner was brought into the Southwark Police- court as soon as the night charges had been disposed of, and charged before Mr. Baroham with the murder of her three children already named. She was decently attired, but evidently in a weak state of health, and wearing a green shade over her eyes. Her manner and demeanour was cool and collected. Superintendent Branford and Inspector Manson were in attendance to watch the case. The first witness called waA- George Laek, who deposed as follows I am a son of the prisoner, and am seventeen years of age. I had a brother named Christopher, aged nine; a sister named Eliza, aged five; and another sister named Esther, aged about two years. I lived with my parents at No. 10, Skin-market-place, Backside, where we had three rooms, two on the ground floor and one room on the first floor. In the last-named room I saw my two little sisters alive, but asleep in the bed, about eight o'clock. I saw my little brother alive about twelve o'clock. He was then in the front room on the first floor, and about retiring to bed in the same room in which the little girls were asleep. I think my mother (the prisoner) was then in bed in the same room. My father came in about twelve o'clock, and I went out for a walis for a few minutes, not feeling well. On my return I saw my father on the ground floor, but I myself fell asleep on a chair at the door. My father awoke me to go and call up a person in the neighbourhood at a quarter to two o'clock. My father then himself went out again, but again returned about three o'clock, when my mother called out to him, and he want a few steps up the stairs. My mother said something to him, which I did not hear, and my father came downstairs again wringing his hands. I asked what was the matter, but my father could not speak, and I went upstairs and there saw the three children lying with their throats cut. My mother was then standing close to the bedroom door, but did not say anything to me. I rushed downstairs and halloed out for help, and a young lad, a neighbour, came up, but was afraid to go upstairs. In a short time my father came back with a police-constable, and my mother was taken into custody. In reply to Mr. Burcham, the witness said prisoner had been ill seven years, and was nearly three parts blind, but could see things when brought close to her eyes. At times he had noticed that her mind was astray, and that she did not remember to have done things which she had done. This had been the case during the last fortnight. His mother was to have gone into St. Thomas's Hospital on Monday under a letter of admission which she had received on the pre- ceding Saturday, but she said she did not like to go, leaving her children behind her. The prisoner, when asked if she wished to put any questions to the witness, said, George, whera are the children ? ( The witness, who was deeply attested, burst into tears, but did not make, any reply. Mr. Edward Hibbard, surgeon, gave formal evidence as to the cause of death. Richard Gardner was the next witness called, but before he could be sworn he fell down in a fit, and was seized with fearful convulsions. He was removed from tho court, atid on his restoration he was brought in and seated at the solicitor's table. On being sworn he said, I am in the-employ of Mr. Matthews, a fruit salesman in the Borough-market. I married the prisoner's eldest daughter, and lived in the same house in Skin- market place. This morning, about three o'clock, I was awoke by hearing my brother-in-law, George Lack, who has been examined as a witness, sobbing violently on the staircase. I came out of my room in my night shirt, and asked him what was the matter. George could not answer me, and I went into the first-floor front room, and again asked what was the matter. The prisoner at once said, That's the matter," at the same time point- ing to the bed on which lay the two little girls with their throats cut, the bed being covered with blood. Their heads were nearly severed from their bodies. I then turned and saw the little boy lying on his back on the mattress on which he usually slept. His legs were distended, and his throat was cut in a similar manner to the two other children. By Mr. Barcham I have been married ten months and have known the prisoner during the whole time. I have often seen her very strange with the children, sometimes chiding tham with severity, and the next Moment faking them up and kissing them. She is by birth a native of Wales, and in general treated her chii-drea as an affectionate mother, and was very kind to them. She had not comolained of poverty, but on baturday last she stated that she did not like to m. *1. hospital, as she did not wish to leave her children to the mercy of anybody. George Lack was re-called, and, in reply to Mr. Bar,-ham, siaid that his mother w-as always kind and affectionate to the children. Before his father went upstairs at threeo cloak he (witness) did not bear-any cries or soresms from the children. Polise- sergeant Pearce, 7 M, deposed as follows: I went to the house of if o. 10, Skin-market-place, shortly before four o'clock this morning, and saw the prisoner in the upstairs room; I said, Who has done this ? and cautioned the prisoner in the usual way. The prisoner at once said, "I know perfectly well what I am about. I murdered the children. I awoke about three o'clock, and got up. I then went downstairs and got the razors. I came upstairs again, and first cut the throat of Christopher, then I went to the bed and out the throat of Eliza, and then I cut the throat of the baby. After I had done it, I took up the body of the baby and kissed it." I then asked her what had caused her to do this, and the prisoner replied that she was about going to the hospital, and did not like hei: ohildren behind her. On this her son-in- ovl i fitness Gardner—said te her, Mother, you o° tave done this, for you knew I would Jw are 1116 °^ren." She replied, "Yes; but +v.;t flesh and blood." The prisoner was axd.ted 6 °°°l a:Qd oolleoted and not the least Paohard Gardner was recalled, and added to his W Prisoner had said that she did not know what she had done until she had kissed the baby after cutting throat. This morning he (witness) brought some tea to his mother, and saw her about lght o clock in one of the cells of the ad- joining police-station, and then she said to him that the children were better in heaven than starving about the street. She did not say that some one had whispered to her to oo it* The husband of the prisoner said his wife had made the statement to him. The depositions having been completed, were read ever, and the prisoner was told she could now put any question she might think fit to any of the witnesses The prisoner, who had remained seated, with her head resting on her hands in front of the dock, here roused herself, and said she had no questions to ask. Mr. Burcham then cautioned her in the usual way, when The prisoner said: I have only this to say. I was quite destitute, and my little girl was quite blind. My husband had himself been taken ill, and I fretted my mind because I had to go to the hospital, and I thought it better to do what I did, because I thought my children would be safer to be in heaven. The witnesses were then bound over to prosecute, and the prisoner was fully committed for trial at the next sessions of the Central Criminal Court. The prisoner was at once removed from the dock, and conveyed by Downs, the gaoler of the court, te Horsemen srer-lane Gael. The Inquest, Oa Friday, Mr. Carter held an inquest on the three TIT70? earned Lack, who were killed by their mother on Wednesday morning, at Bankside. The witnesses examined were George Lack, brother of the deceased; Richard Henry Gardner, the husband of an elder sister; Police-constable Henry Pope, and Dr. Edward iiibberd. The evidence was a mere repetition of that given before the magistrate. The jury returned a verdict of Wilful murder against Esther Lack."
EXTRAORDINARY FRAUDS UPON…
EXTRAORDINARY FRAUDS UPON FOREIGNERS. A Frenchman, who gave the name of Louis Jordan, bnt who had passed by several other names, who resided at 41, Whiskin-street, Clerkenwell, and whose real occupation was unknown; and an Englishwoman named Angelina Jordan, who was said to be his wife and who lived with him at the same address, were' brought, on Friday,, before the Lord Mayor, at the Justioe Room of the Mansion-house, on a charge of having, withers not in custody, conspired together and obtained by false pretences, on the 21st inst., a post- office order, No. 88, representing about 100 francs, or about M, thereby defrauding Signor Valerio Castel- bini of his money. The male prisoner, who said he did not understand English, and to whom the evidence was interpreted by an officer of the court. anneared about thirty years of age. He wore a meustaohe. and was respectably dressed. The female, who is a re- markably well-looking young woman, was somewhat fashionably attired in a, pork-pia hat and veil, shawl, and silk dress. They were both undefended. Though this case a,a entered upon the charge sheet would not seem to possess any features of more than ordinary interest, yet from the evidence given and the circumstances known to the police, there can be very little doubt that it is destined to occupy no inson- sidfJraMe share of public attention, both in England and all over the Continent, and that it will hereafter take rank among the annals of swindling and at- tempted swindling carried oiut upon an extensive scale, noma of its main features have been already made public in detached forms, for it will be remem- bered that last week the Italian Consul and this week the S-pa-aish Consul made oral and sent written state- ments to the Lord Mayor, which were published in the papers, to the effect that persons in Lon. don had written to Italy, Spain, and other parts of the Continent, under different names, repre- senting to their correspondents that certain boxes containing valuable property, and some packets containing legacies; addressed to the said correspondents, had been received in the metro- polis from Rio Janeiro and elsewhere, upon which the writers, acting in their capacity of general agents, had paid certain eharges, and requesting that the amounts they were out of pocket might be transmitted to them by cheques or otherwise, promising that then the ooxes and packets would be duly forwarded to their respective owners. In reply to one of these letters, Signor Valerio Castelbini, who is believed t(j) be a private gentleman living at Sienna, in Italy, sent the parties a post-offica order for lOOf., and it was for receiving this order, cashing it, and appropriating the proceeds to their own use, upon false pretences, there being no box or packet received by them for this gentleman, that they were now brought np. The letter he forwarded to them with the order wa3 dated Sienna, 15th August, 1865," and was addressed to Messrs. G. H. Eigdon and Co. one of the fictitious names or firms under which the prisoners and their accomplkes were passing:— Enclosed you will find an international post-office order on Paris for 100 francs, accsrding to the contents of your letter of the 9th inst. Please to forward through tha post, registered, the parcel which you have to my address, and if you- incur any further expense I will reimburse the same to you on advice in the same way.-I am, with thanks, your servant, VALERIO CASTELBINI. There is now no doubt that the prisoners received very many letters-similar to, this one, with remittances most of the letters so received by them were regis- tered, and were in answer to some 15,000 written by themselves to every part of the Continent, and in which they had mada the same false representation respecting the receipt of boxes and packets addressed to their correspondents, and requested cheques or post-office orders to be forwarded for the charges said to have been paid thereon. When the prisoners were on Friday put to the bar, Inspector Hamilton, ch-ief of the detective depart- ment, said, that in consequence of the representations made at this court a few days ago, by the Italian and Spanish Consuls, he and others of the force were re- quested to try and bring the offending parties to justice. They had succeeded in apprehending the two in the dock, who were believed to be the principals in one of the most gigantic courses of swindling, exten- ding over the whole of the Continent, which had ever been brought under the notice of the public. The ramifications of the parties had been upon so large a scale, ,nd so well framed and carriad out,, tILat, without the adoption of active measures, it would be impossi- ble to ascertain the extent of the frauds they had attempted, and in many of which they had been successful. At present the prosecution was in a weak state, owing to the difficulty of communicating with distant parts of the Continent, and therefore he hoped the Lord Mayor would manifest forbearance on that occasion, and make allowancg for the deficiency of evidence to bring home to the prisoners the material points against them. If a remand were granted, he had no doubt whatever that he should ba in a position to establish very numerous cases of frattd upon their parts. MaryAsMey examined Her husband's name was John, and he was a builder. She lived at 20, Graf ton- street, Fitzroy-square, and knew both the prisoners. She saw the male prisoner on the 4th of May last. He came to her house then to take a bedroom, There was another gentleman, with him of a rather fair com- plexion, and she had never seen the latter since. The prisoner never occupied the bedroom, and after he had taken it she did not see him again for nearly a fort- night. He came then and said that letters would come for him, and that she was to take great care of them. When he first took the room she asked him for his address, and he gave it to her. He wrote it down as fol- lows William Whabbulat and Co., 13, Princes-street, Chelsea." He also wrote down the name of the party who was with hina as Dimerot. In a few days after the fortnight he came again. There were a quantity of letters arrived in the meantime, somewhere about twenty, perhaps more, addressed to 11 William Rhabbulat and Co., Agents." She gave him those letters. She saw that they were nearly all foreign letters. A great many of them were registered. He had told her before that when his letters arrived there would be sometimes money in them or valuable property, and she said in reply that her husband did not allow her to sign for anything of that kind. He told her that that would make no eon- sequence, and that he wished her to sign. She asked about it, and he said that, if she signed he letters for Rhabbulat, he (Rhabbulat) would have to sign a receipt to her. She told the prisoner this, and he said he had no objection at all to do what the postman required. Several registered letters came after that, and she signed for all of them. She made 11EL In writing of all the registered letters she „ ed for, and that list she now handed in. The female prisoner came the week before last. He told witness the day before she came, that was about Thursday week, that he should bring his wife the following day, and that she was to give the letters up came every day, and that she (the wite) was to sign the receipts for the registered letters with his signature at the bottom. He then signed several receipts for them in blank on-a. couple of shcGts of paper, and these his wife was also to sign as the registered letters arrived, bhe (the wife) signed several reseipts, AH but the last four were filled up by himself. He signed receipts for registered letters received on the 6th, 19th, 20th, 22ud, 26th, 27th, and 29th of June, also on the 8th, 10th, 24th, 27th, and 28th of July, and also on the 3rd, 8th, 10th, 11th, 19th, 21st, and 22ad of August. Generally only one registered letter arrived at a time, but there were two on the 22ad of July, and four on the 21st of August. The female prisoner received the letters on the last three days, and she received eight registered letters in all. Neither of the prisoners gave ''ke name of Jordan. Witness believed that every one ot the letters ci tne from abroad. They were all ad- dressed to "Wm. Rhabbulat and Co., agents." No business whatever was carried on by the prisoners at witness s house. The Lord Mayor asked whether they had paid her anything ? Witness replied that they paid her 5s. a week. A parcel for them came from 53, Gracechurch-street, on the 2nd of July, containing samples of wine. There were half-a-dozen bottles in a box, and her husband and herself refused to take it in. Several gentlemen called to see the male prisoner. They were princi- pally foreigners. They asked to see Mr. Rhabbnlat on business, and inquired if he had not an office there. They appeared not to be his friends, but persons who did not know him personally. He had no office there. •^0T?^7er room> which had a sofa bed in it. Witness put the letters as they arrived in the room for him. He said at first he should want the room from ten o'clock to four, for he should have a great deal of writing to do. He never wrote there, and only stopped about five minutes every time he came. He never gave witness any letters to take to the post. Evidence was then given as to circulars in the pri- soners possession which identified them with a series °l -aP? Proving the number of letters received at 41, VVhiskm-street were all delivered to either one or other of the prisoners. The case was remanded for a week.

Champagne for the British Public A chemist within the postal district has recently been purchasing low French white wine or sherry, with which the market is at present glutted. The operator places it in bottles of the orthodox shape, and sub- mits it to the action of a soda-water machine, by which it is copiously charged with carbonic acid, giving it the required degree of eifarve -cence, which of course disappears soon after the bottle is opened. A tinfoil capsule and an attractive label are then added, which renders this exhilarating beverage fit for the market, where, to our knowledge, it has been sold, and is now on offer.- Wine Trade Review. Sudden Death of a Drunkard.-An inquest I was recently held in Club-row, Bethnal-green-road, re- lative to the death of Aaron Corduroy, aged fifty-five. The deceased was living with a woman named Ann Percival, and was an occasional tippler. He was seen drinking about Old Nichol-street, where he lived, on Saturday night last. He went home between eight and nine to go to bed. He attempted to undress, when he fell upon the floor, where he went to sleep. At four o'clock on the Sunday morning he was found to be dead. The post-mortem examination of the body showed that the cause of death wag serous apoplexy. The jury returned a verdict of "Death from Apoplexy, accelerated by excessive drinking." Mr. W. F.

On Tuesday, says a local contemporary, he drove a large party down to Yarmouth race3 in a "drag" from Norwich, and as he "tooled" his four-in-hand away from the old oity he appeared in the highest spirits, shouting out the refrain of Slap Bang! in his peculiar fashion. About half-past ten p.m. the drag re-appeared, the mirth of the party still more exuberant than ever, and the everlasting Slap Bang being still on every lip. The drag seems to have reached its destination quite safely. Oar Japanese Visitors.-The London and China Telegraph says that, the party of Japanese sent to England by the Prince of Satsuma are fourteen in number, consisting of two officers of high rank, an in- terpreter, and eleven young men of good family and education, who are to remain in England for some years, in order to acquire a knowledge of the English language and an insight into the literature, arts, and sciences which form such important elements in Euro- pean civilisation. For this purpose they have been placed in the care of Professor Williamson, of the Lioaaoa University, under whose able guidance their studies are already being prosecuted. Sunday Trains in Scotland.—As might have been expeoted, there is to be an attempt made to raise something of outcry and opposition against the pro, posod Sunday opening of the Edinburgh and Glasgow line of railway. The outcry, says the North British Mail, will doubtless be loud enough, for all are familiar with the fact which is expressed in the old proverb about shallow brooks and empty barrels. But as for effective opposition, there will be none. Mr. Richard Hodgson is not the man to quail before legions of deputations, mustered by tuck of the drum clerical. He may be relied on to set his face as a flint against their importunities, They might as well hope to demolish Gibraltar by an assault of pop-guns as to make an impression on him. Death from Hydrophobia. Mr..Bedford, coroner, held an inquest on Thursday at the Kind's Arms, Westminster, on the body of George Howard. aged thirty-six. According to the evidence the de- ceased was bitten about a month ago in the hand by a Newfoundland dog; the wound bled a little, and was bathed wit.h salt-and-water. The impression on the mind of the deceased was that the dog was mad, and that he should die; he went to a doctor, who ap- plied caustic to the wound. On Saturday last he became very bad. When his face was washed he began to shudder as the water touched him, and he died on Tuesday evening last. Mr. Henry Whatlow, surgeon, of Regent-road, Westminster, said he was of opinion that the deceased died from hydrophobia. The jury returned a verdict in accordanoe-with this view. A Lady's Yacht.-The special correspondent of the Patrie at Cherbourg writes as follows: "Besides the yachts (English) organised in a division, a great many others have arrived, and have anchored in the roadstead, opposite the Mercantile-port. One of them belongs to a widow lady, who commands it herself. She has with her a daughter of eleven, a son of fourteen, a governess, and three women tervants. Under her orders she has twelve sailors, besides an experienced merchant captain, whom she has taken into her pay, and who assists her with his advice, but does not com- mand the ship. The lady is gracious and amiable, and speaks French correctly. Her vessel is in perfect order. She told us that it would be open to all visitors during the fetes; that her captain would receive the gentlemen and she the ladies. Two Italian frigates, an Austrian i rigate, and a Portuguese corvette are ex- pected here. The Emerald (Belgian) has arrived, hav- ng on board twenty-four officers of various arms. A Bull-fighting Catastrophe.—The Paris cor- respondent of the Globe says :-We are to have a bull fight at the Hippodrome in Champs Elyseas. The director of that concern, M. Arnault, has actually got a regular authorisation for such a spectacle. Four bulls of Spanish race are already in Paris, destined to figure in this butchery. Their names are Triple Diable, Infernal, Leopard, and Tigre. We have accounts from Montpellier of a sad catastrophe in the suburbs of that city, where a bull-fight had been organised in presence of 6,000 lookers-on; a wooden structure, in form of an amphitheatre, served as a temporary erection for the performance, in the midst of which a crash of this timbers hurled a mass of people into the arena, where the bull was careering m full fury. A dash was made by the beast into the thick of the crowd, a mother and child were tossed aloft, more than a dozen were fright- fully gored, and the assembled multitude had their fill of what they sought-a sensation. The Evangelical Alliance.-The 19th annual conference of the British organisation of this alliance is this year appointed to be held at Hull. The first sitting of the conference will be held at noon on Tuesday, the 26th of September, and two or three meetings per day will be held until Friday, on the evening of which day the conference will be brought to a close by a public meeting held in the Assembly- rooms. Among the persons expected to preside at the meetings or take part in the business of the week are —Lord Calthorpe, Lord Benholme, and Lord Rad- stock; also the Revs. J. S. Blackwood, rector, Middle- ton-Tyas, Yorkshire; J. Stoughton, London; R. H. Killick, London; Baptist Noel, R. Balgarnie, S. Thornton, Birmingham. Representatives are also expected from Holland, Italy, France, Switzerland, Germany, and Sweden, who will supply information as to the spread of the Gospel in foreign lands. The 77 committee are making preparations for receiving the numerous visitors who are expected in the town. A case of stabbing, which is likely to end fatally, occurred at Stratford on Sunday evening. Some quairel seems to have taken place between a German cabinetmaker named Joseph Kruchen, residing there, Mia two^ other Germans, named Brenner and Heins. Kruchen's son says he saw Brenner stab his father several times. Kruchen himself was picked up wounded fearfully. He was carried to the London Hospital, and is not likely to recover. Brenner and Heins were apprehended and brought before the magistrates at Stratford on Monday. Some evidence was given against them, and they were remanded. The Atlantic Cable.—The following notice has been posted at Lloyd's, from the directors of the Atlantic Telegraph Company, respecting the future operations in respect to the Atlantic cable: It is not intended to send out the Great Eastern to repair the cable during the present; season; but she will immediately commence her refitments to enable her to take in a new cable, and will proceed to sea in May 01*ki H8' nexfc year>. f°r the purpose of paying a new ca~,0' ,aQ(i to resuscitate the present one in connection with that in operation." Loss of Irife on the Thames.—Oa Saturday a man named Bryan Sullivan, while going down the river in a skiff towards St. Katherine's Docks, got athwart the nawse of a ship in a tier off Irongate- stairs, and while standing up in the boat for the purpose of making a rope fast to a barge, another barge was carried by the tide against the boat, and smashed it, at the same time precipitating Sullivan into the water. He was carried away by the tide, and his body has not been found.—Between eight and nine oa Friday evening a boat returniug with a pleasure party from Greenwich, in making for Rotherhithe- stairs to land, got athwart the causeway and capsized immersing the entire party. One, a female, in her struggles, got out into deep water and was drowned. Death of Archdeacon Coxe.—We have to an- nounce the death of the Ven. Archdeacon Coxe, who, aiter a lingering and severe affliction, expired on Fri- day morning. The deceased gentleman weos born about the year 1799, and was educated at Oxford. He suc- cessively became chaplain of Archbishop Tenison's Chapel, London, viear of Newc istle, select preacher beiore the Uriivorsityof Oxford, archdeacon of Lindis- tarne, and canon, residentiary of Durham; appoint- ments ÏOJ: which ais great learning, matured judgment, and kindly disposition pre-eminently fitted him. In his death the diocese of Durham has lost one of its most able and active ministers, and the Church a staunch and zealous supporter. A Questionable Batting Transaction.—At the Manchester County Court, before E. Ovens, Esq., judge, John Lee, of Stalybridge, contractor, sued George Dodson, beerseller, Hen ley-street, Huddera- field, to recover X15 upon two I O U's. It appears that a footrace was to have come off at the Copen- hagen Ground, Newton Heath, between two men named Shaw and E trnshaw, and the money was said to have been advanced to make up the stakes; but defendant denied the receipt of the money. It seemed that an arrangement was come to by which Shaw was to win, and the other was to be paid back his stakes. His Honour nonsuited the plaintiff; and said he had no doubt that the parties had put their heads together in order to cheat the public over the race. Importation of Silkworms' Eggs into France. The Ministers of Foreign Affairs and of Commerce in Paris have issued a joint decree to pre- vent frauds which might be committed by the sale of silkworms' eggs, not coming from Japan, but olaoed in boxes used to import supplies from that country. All French agents in Japan are to be required to affix a special stamp, varying every year, to the boxes destined to France. Instructions have also been sent to the Minister of France at Yeddo as to certain pre. cautions to be taken in the transmission of living cocoons and eggs; the same to be communicated to all who may be desirous of such information. The Government, however, in adopting those measures does not intend to guarantee the qualitr of the eggs imported from Japan, but only their bona fide origin. Atlantic and Great Western Railway.-At the public meeting held a short time since at the London Tavern, Sir Morton Pato, Bart, M.P., stated that instead of making his usual holiday trip to Scotland, he intended to visit America, and personally inspect the whole of the extensive system of the Atlantic and Great Western Railway.

The Isleworth MLirder. -An inquest took place at Isleworth on Wednesday on the body of Daniel Dossett, who, as there is every reason to be. lieve, first murdered his wife and then inflicted deadly injuries upon himself. Daring the ten weeks he lingered in the infirmary of the workhouse he made a quasi confession of his guilt. The jury returned a verdict that Dossett died by his own hand, but de- clined to express any opi iion as to his state of mind at the time he committed the deed. The Charge against Mr. Sprague.

There waa no nev material evidence adduced on the present occasion, and the prisoner, who denied his guilt, was committed for trial.
ASSASSINATION OF PRiNGE ALFBEDS…
ASSASSINATION OF PRiNGE ALFBEDS COOK. Tv-0 was quietly one evening walking in one of the streets at B >nn, when he met same officers, one of whom said, ',Gat out of the way, ?uU vi k°tne words then took place, and one of- the genulemsn drew his sabre and cut the cook down the head; not satisfied however, with this, he rushed vif13/?'1111 and gouged one of his eyes out with the nut of his sword. Tha poor fellovr was taken to an hospital with his eye hanging down on his cheek, and died the next day. The Berlin correspondent of the Times says the cook, Herr Ott by name, was on the point of starting for Coburg, whither he had been or- dered during the stay of her Majesty, when he met some students in a public thoroughfare, and could not agree with them on the important question as to who was to got out of the way and allow the other to pass. The difference led to a quirrel, in the course of which one of the students, being a volunteer in the Prussian army, and having his broad sword dangling by his side, struck the cook a blow on the head. Herr O'-t expired a few hours after the bW, and an inaairv will doubtless be instituted by the military autho>-iHps A correspondent m a later number of the Europe saysTne name of the debased was Ott and he was passing with some trienat through a street near the University, when the5 were met by a party of young men, one of them m mxlitary uniform and the others students, who blocked the way. ott and'his com- panions civilly aaked tofallowed to pass, but the young men not only continued to b,%r the Passage, but assailed i n •, V students were armed with sticks It^' and^h0 soldier lifted his sword and struck Ott twice on the head with it. Ott had not even a cane in his hand, and was utterly defenceless. He was taken to the hospital, where his wounds were dressed, and he was then able to go home; bat he died-next day, as is supposed, from tetanus. The as- sassin is Count von Euleuberg, son of the Home Minister of Prussia; he is twenty years of age, and a volunteer for a year in the Hussars. When he learned that Ott was dead he fled to Berlin. The inhabitants of Bonn demand that the law should take its course re- gardless of the rank of the offender, and indiaatad their feelings by giving poor Oct an imposing public funeral. There was a long procession on foot, and a niimbo,r of tha wAalfhiAr .iH" :? 11
