The news was received from England last week that in a suburb at Liverpool, where the murderer Williams married Miss Mather, his last victim, the remains have been dis covered of a woman (presumably a previous ?wife of Williams) and five children.

How many more victims perished by the hand of this king among murderers will probably never be known, and indeed it was only the hot midsummer climate of Victoria that exposed bis latest crime by prematurely causing the gases in the dead body to expand their ghastly framework, and break through the cement before it had firmly set. There is one gratifying fact in conncction with the whole ghastly affair and that is the capture of the murderer and the knowledge that he will never again be able to practi...
