The Murder of a Sweet- heart. I EXECUTION THIS MORNING. i Horace Robert Jay was executed within Wands Worth gaol this morning for the murder of a young girl named Florence Kemp, whom he was court- ing. He committed the rash deed in a fit of jealousy, when the deceased was on a visit to him at his lodgings, in Lark Hall-lane, Clapham. The convict cut his own throat after the murder, and he was not sufficiently recovered to tae his trial for about two months. Since his conviction the Prisoner has paid great attention to the ministra- tions of the chaplain, but he invariably main- lined that what he had done was for the good of the deceased, and would save her from a life of 'nisery and trouble. The mother of the murdered girl saw the prisoner on Friday, and forgave him for the murder of her daughter. The culprit slept soundly last night, and early this morning was visited by the Chaplain, who remained in prayer with him until the hour fixed for the execution pri80ner Wa]ked & firm step to the scaffold, but did not utter a word while being pinioned. Berry, the executioner, gave a drop or seven feet, and death appeared to ensue almost instantly. A small crowd gathered outside the pr:son.
