THE WHITECHAPEL FIEND.
________

THE new Chief Commissioner of Police has not done anything yet towards unravelling the Whitechapel mysteries. The "Pall Mall," whose taste is unaccountably gory, has put forth a theory that the murderer is a Frenchman; and urges in support of its case tha tthe supposed assassin spelt the word "Jews" in French fashion "Juives."  Should all the theories prove true, the murderer would indeed be a curious combination. He has been at various periods a Malay, a Russian, an American, and a Jew, and the advancer of each of the theories has proved indubitably (to himself at least) that he was right. We opine--although theorising is dangerous--that when the actual miscreant turns up his case will be like "Captain Corcoran's" in Pinafore.

            He might have been a Rooshian,
            A Frenchman, Turk, or Prooshian,
                      Or even an Ital-i-an.

            But in spite of all temptations,
            To belong to other nations
                      He remains an Englishman.
