A Cardiff Mystery. I Shocking Discovery at Grangetown. I A CHILD'S BODY FOUND. I Shortly after 6 o'clock this morning the Cardifc police were apprised of the discovery of the dead body of a newly-born male child on a piece of >- waste ground at Grangetown. The place wbere the body was found is situated on the southern s side of the Great Western Railway, and is at the extreme end of Virgil-street, one of the localities occupied by the poorer working classes of Cardiff. It is evident that the body had been placed there during the night very carefully, for no bruises are visible on the body. It was tied up in a blaek f shawl, and then covered with a piece of red quilt, this in turn being enclosed in a ptllow-slip. The discovery was made by a man who was oil his way to work, his attention being attraoted from the path he was travelling by the strange* looking bundle. He gave information to P.O. Young, and the constable removed the body to the Bute-street Mortuary. There are no marks on the clothing likely to lead to the discovery of the mother.
