THE WHITECHAPEL MURDER.

Last night the woman Mary Connolly, who was with the murdered woman, Martha Turner, late on the night of the murder, stated that she and the deceased first met the two soldiers near a public-house in the Whitechapel-road, at about ten o'clock. They walked up and down the Whitechapel-road, backwards and forwards, a considerable time, and called in at several houses in the road. The statement which had appeared that they were in the "Princess Alice" was not true. She left the deceased with one of the soldiers at the end of the George-yard, and she and the other soldier went off in another direction. When she left the woman since murdered, it was about a quarter to twelve o'clock. It is alleged that the soldiers who were in the neighbourhood at the time were in undress, and had white bands round their caps. As that is part of the uniform of the Coldstream Guards, Connolly and Police-constable Barrett will be taken to-day to their quarters, to see if they can identify anyone. Considering the number of tenements, and the traffic up and down the steps where the body was found, together with other circumstances, there is a doubt whether the murder was perpetrated where the body was found.

POLICE CELL ACCOMMODATION.-In consequence of the report of Mr. Justice Wills' committee on the accommodation in the police cells, it has been arranged at Bow-street Police Court that all the charges against women are to be disposed of before any other cases are taken. This course has been adopted under instructions from the Home Office, and taken effect from to-day. The female defendants will also be the first to be removed by the police vans.
