"The Murders in London."

London, Oct. 5. -- Sir Charles Warren, Chief of the Metropolitan Police Force, has decided to employ bloodhounds in his efforts to discover the perpetrator of the Whitechapel murders.

The police place confidence in the story of George M. Dodge, a seaman, who states that in August last he met a Malay cook named Alaska, with whom he had previously been acquainted on shipboard, in a music hall in London, and that Alaska told him he had been robbed of all he had by a woman of the town, and threatened that unless he found the woman and recovered his property, he would kill and mutilate every Whitechapel woman he met. The police are searching everywhere for the Malay.

Acting on information which has been furnished them, the police have seized and occupied several houses in that section.
