"Another London Murder"

London, Sept.10.-- At 5:30 o'clock this morning a policeman found the body of a fallen woman lying at the corner of a railway arch on Cable-street, Whitechapel. The head and legs had been cut off and carried away and the body opened. Policemen pass the spot every fifteen minutes. Those on duty last night say they saw nothing suspicious. The manner in which the limbs had been severed from the body shows that the murderer was possessed of some surgical skill. The woman was about thirty years old. There was no blood on the ground where the body was found, neither was there any blood on the body. From this it is evident that the murder was committed in some other place. It is believed that the woman had been dead for two days. The body has not been identified.

Three sailors who were sleeping under the arch next to the one under which the body was found were taken into custody by the police. They convinced the authorities, however, that they had seen or heard nothing of a suspicious nature, and they were discharged.
