The fatal affray took place in Rosemary-lane, Whifcechapel, on Sunday night, at 12 o'clock. The murder was committed in the street in the presence of several persons. Mann and his wife were quarrel- ling, and her father, the prisoner, interfered, and with. out saying a word plunged a knife into his son-il, -law's breast. The unfortunate man fell, exclaiming, I am stabbed." Dr. John Loane, of No. 1, Dock-street, Whitechapel, was fetched directly. He found the man was dead. He only survived three minutes after he was stabbed. There was a large wound on the right side of the chest, from which blood had issued freely. The prisoner fled directly he had stabbed his son-in-law. Inspector Dandy, of the H division station-house in Leroan-street, immediately sent coasftabka in all directions in pursuit of the prisoner, who was soon in custody. The knife was found in the street, near the custody. The knife was found in the street, near the place where the murder was committed. Cornelius Leary, a tailor, and hia wife, who saw the prisoner stab Mann, gave evidence to that effect.
