THE MURDER NEAR GATESHEAD. On Friday, Cuthbert Roddam Carr, the man in custody charged, upon his own confession, with hav- ing murdered Sarah Melvin, a girl seven years of age, at Carr's Hill, near Gateshead, on the 13th of April last, was brought before the borough magistrates. The deceased, it will be remembered, was found dead on a road leading from Filling to Sheriff-hill, whither her parents had gone the same day. At that time the father and mother were suspected of having murdered their child, and were taken into custody, but after an ex- amination before the magistrates were released. Mr. Elliott, the chief constable, having briefly stated the case, informed the bench that on Wednesday night the prisoner came to the police-station, and told the offi. cer in charge that he wanted to make a statement in reference to the Carr's Hill murder. He (the chief constable) waa sent for, and on going to the station cautioned the prisoner as to what he was about to say, and then wrote down the account of the tragedy. According to this statement (whioh was then read), the prisoner at about half-past six o'clock in the even- ing saw the little girl going up the road whioh her father and mother had just passed up. He went after her, took hold of her hand, and then carried her to an adjoining stable, where he choked her with his hands. He then got a clothes-line, and tied it tightly round her neck, having first split the cord into two pieces. With the other piece he tied the girl's hands, though she was quite dead at the time. He next laid himself upon her, having previously mutilated her; and after concealing the body under the straw, watched for an opportunity to remove it. For about two hours he watched people passing, and at length went back to the stable, took her in his arms, and in sight of several persons laid the mutilated corpse upon the road, where it was afterwards found. The chief constable applied that the case might be remanded in order to bring forward various witnesses, whose statements would in some degree corroborate that of the prisoner. The application was granted. Carr is a young man, tall, and thinly made, and evidently of weak intelleot.
