CHESTER. THE LATE MURDER.—Mrs. Martha Miller, wife of the keeper of the Yacht Inn, Watergate-street, Chester, who in June last cut the throats of two of her children—one fatally—and then tried to commit suicide by the same means, and who was sub- sequently confined in the County Lunatic Asylum, near Chester, died there a few days ago, after having given birth prematurely to a child. A DRUNKARD'S HISTORY.—The ctiy magistrates had before them on Tuesday John Ogden, a black- smith, for being drunk and disorderly in one of the streets of the city on the previous night. Ogden is about 60 years of age, and this is his 100th appear- ance before the magistrates, chiefly for offences of the same kind. He was sent to gaol for 21 days' hard labour. It is computed that from first to last he has passed about ten years of his life in prison, and it is curious to relate that his father was convicted before the magistrates no less than 65 times, and ultimately ended his days in the workhouse, having spent about six or seven years of his life in gaol.
