Hxecuti n at Horsemonger-larie. — On MOil day last, Sarah Fletcher, for the IllIlrtler 01 her Lew-born infant at Wandsworth, was, pur suant to her sentence, executed on it le'll I,(,- rary scaffold upon the top of the New Prison Horsemonger lane, in presence of an immense crowd of spectators. This unfortunate young woman, who had committed ibis crime, and which was of the mo»: barbarous description, was conducted upon the platform at nine o'clock bv Mr. Ives, the Keeper; sle wus lull aiiti e', g:piit in person, and wore a li uid some mourning dress, and appeared perfectly resigned to her fate, which she, with becom iug fortdode, afier remaining a few minutes in prayer wifh the Clergyman, met; and her body, aljf-r having been suspended Ihe usual time, was dt hTered over fox dissection, l/iverpool, "pril 3. The lIolcdHufièy White, charged with being concerned in the robbery of the Leeds Mail, and Haywood his companion, wer> both taken at this place on Thursday lIiLt lasl. Wh;le had recently ar- rived here from Bristol, at which place he had a very lIarrowescapefrliru Ihe police otlicers. It being supposed probable that While might come to Liverpool, a letter was sent lo the police oiffce here, winch was received on rhursdiy, containing a description of him, with a particular account of the articles found in the possession ol Burkitt and Goodman, which it was supposed might assist in the de- tection of White, and also of Haywood, who was suspected to be witli Itill)- The police ofH cers iiere immediately set their engines in mo- tion, and soon discovered that the two men they were m quest of, where concealed in a house in Scotland-road. The otlicers accord- ingly weiii iliiiiier, and after a desperate re- sistance,during which i he coolness and courage of the officers were very conspicuous, and iii which Haywood was considerably hurt, they were both taken into custody. ThcJ are be- lieved to have been (I ncerned in SOllie of the robberies which have laiely been committed here. and by their apprehension the town has probably escaped a great deal of mischief, which they are believed to have had in (-on. templation. Since their seizure, about forty pick-lock keys, some dark lanlhorns, and other Implemenl s of robbery have been found, concealed under I he floor of the house in which they were taken • Dreadful 1 oiijlagration.—Yesferd ly morn- ing, about five o'clock, the extensive premises of Ihe Commercial Hall, Snow-hill, were dis- covered to be on fire. So great was Ihe ra- pidity of Ihe raging element, that iirn short lime that noble build ng was reduced toa mere skeleton. When the roof fell in, a tremendous flake of lire issued forlh. and was blown to a house opposite, which immediately kindled, hut furlonately was soon extinguished by the exertions of the firemen, to whom the greatest praise is due. There are tllallj old houses al (lie back of the Commercial. Hall inhabited by poor people, whose lamentations were truly distressing. The removing of their only furniture, the cries of mothers, and their naked infants, were scenes which could not be beneld without exciting Ihe deepest senli- niknls of regret tor the sufferers. iki iii-sl it threatened destruction to the whole neigh- bourhood, and we are sorry to add il was a long time before its communication could be retarded. After some time there was a tole- rable supply of water, together with many engines and much assistance, yet Ihese pow erlul operations Were at lirsl telt but feebly. It. communicated to the adjoining houses, which were soon enveloped m a volume of fira which burned will* great rapidity for a considerable time. The Wine Merchant's is completely destroyed. We are happy to say it was got under about ten o'clocks without the loss of any lives, but two persons sustained considerable injury The loss is estimated al at a very considerable sum,5 hut luckily the greater part is insured in lite AlIas and Ex- change. A poor cat attracted the attention of the multitude, by fixing herself to a water- spout havjng no way to cscape, r,|ie chose to cling to this, till al length she fell a victim iu lhegcneral wreck Discovery of the Body of King Charles the first.—The day belore the interment of her Royal Highness the Duchess of Bruns >viek, in the new vault in St. George's Chapel, Wind sor, a discovery was made by the workmen of two ancient coffins, one 01 lead the other of stone. His Royal Highness the Prince Regent being down at Windsor on Thursday evening, he was, of course, consulted about the mode of exploring these Royal remains, which he di reeled to be immediately done iu his presence. Sir Henry [Ialford attended his Koyai High- [less to ttic VaLilt, Wliell Ihe leaden cotlin being unsoldered, a body appeared, covered over with a waxed cloth on carefully stripping the head and face, the countenance of the un- fortunate Martyr, Charles I he First, immedi- ately appeared, in features apparently perfect as when he lived. Sir Henry Ha I ford now cn. deavoured to raise the body from the coffin, in attenilitii), which ilic held fell froiti it, aiid discovered the irregular fissure made by the axe, which appeared to have been united by p a cemenl. What added considerably to the interest of this extraordinary spectacle was, that as Ihe head separated from the neck a fluid drop, of the appearance of blood, tett ) upon the hand of Str Henry Halfoid, which I he accounts for, by supposing if to have been the dissolution of some congealed blood, on its being exposed to the warmth of the air.- The body of the Royal Martyr was atways i known to have been interred at Windsor, but so privately, that the spot could never be as- certained ill now. The stone coffin was next opened, which, from its inscription, was fouud to contain the remains of Henry the Eighth, which consisted of nothing more than the I' skull and principal limb bones, which appear- ed in a perfect state.
