Recollections of a rOlitPoMter;
A few weeks ago, I was en,gdgedie the irivlo,.
gation of a remarkable case of, bur*y, accenitia.
Hied which had juat obittrred at, e
n d by I omicide,
residence of Mr. Bagshawe, u gentleman 0113 9flik -
petent fortune, situated within a few, miles of Ken.,
dal in. Westmoreland. The panktdam forwarded
to the London police authorities by the local ndag.
istracy were' chiefly these: . 6 44
'Mr. Bagshawe, Who had been sometime abirein
at Leamington, Warwickshire, with hie isMire mktbt
lishment, wrote to F:arali Ring—a young woman
left in charge of the house and property—to
nounce his own speedy return, and . at the same
time directing her Id have a
.particular bedroinn
aired, and other household mailers arranged fte-the
reception of his nephew,. Mr. Robert Bristowe,
who, having just arrived from abrosiiii, would, he
expected, leave L-ndon .immediately for Five Oaks
House. The positive arrival Of this nephew-had
been declared to several tradesmen of Kendal by
King early in the day preceding' the' bight oFthe
murder and robbery; and by herdireetiens butcher:
meat, poultry, fish, and eo on,' had 'been sent to
them to Five Oaks for t ials table. The ladwhotar- '
ned the fish home, stated that he had been a
strange young gentlemanin one of the sitting-rooms ,
on the ground-floor through the hallopened door
of the apaMneut. On Alia,,foliciAleg„....mereigg,„„4,
was discovered that Five Oaks,

not indeed broken into, hot !Weigh out of—ihis
was evident from the state of the door fastenings , —
and the servant-woman barbarously murdered.--
Toe netglibors found her I) iug quite.deail and cold
at the loot of the principal staircase, clothed only
to her nightgolarn and stockings, and with a flat
chamber candlestick tightly grasped in her right
ha n d. It was conjectured Martha bad been roused
from sleep by some noise below, and having de-
Tended to ascertain the cause, 'had been merciless
ly slain by the disturbed burglai's. Mr. Bagshawe
arrived on the, and it. was them found
that not only a krge amount of plate, bat between
three and four thousand pounds in gold ; and notes
—the produce of government stock Sold out abot.l
two months previously—hart beencarried off., The
only person. except his niece, who lived with him,
that knew there was this sum the house,. was
hie nephew Robert Bristowe. to whom he had writ.
ten, directing his letter to the Hotnmums Hotel,
London, stating that the sum for the long, contem
plated purchase of Ryland's had been some time
ins idle at Five Oaks, as lie had 'wished to con
sa:t him upon his bargain before fiisallc c• ocludin

be seen or heard of; and what heerne,l ..
beyond .a doubt—to Mr .Bagshawe the tuitur iu g
horrifying suspicion that this nephew was the bur.;
filar and assassin, a portioo.of -the identical letter
written to hini,,by his uncle was found in one 'of
the offices! As he was nowhere to be' met with or
heard of in the nek.liborhood of Kendal, it' wasser
mised that he must have returned to London with
his booty; and a full description of his person, and
the dress he wore, as given .by the '.fishmongeriti
boy, was sent to London by the authoritiesu They
also forwarded -for our use and assistance one Josi
ah Barnes, a sly, sharp, vagabond-sort of fellow,
who bad been'apprehended on suspicion, chiefly,
or father.wbolly, because of his former intimacy
with the unfortunate Sarah King, who bad discard
ed him; it seemed, on account of his incorrigibly
idle, and in otherrtispects disreptitablehabiti. The
alibi he set up was, howelier, so clear and decisive,
that he was bate few hoies custody; and he
now exhibited great teal for the discovery . of the
murderer of the woman to whom he had; to "the
extent of his_perverted instincts, been sincerely at
tached. He fiddled at the festivals of the humbler
Kendalesel -sang, tumbled, ventriloquized at their
tavern orgies; and had he not been so very highly
gifted, might, there was littledoubt,.have earned a
decent liring as aca ter, -to which -profession

about half bred'hini. ills princiPal use testut.wita,
that he was acquainted -with the features of Mr.
Robert Bristowe; and accordingly, as soon as I had
received my cot mission'and instructions, I started .
oil with him to the Hummuiria Hotel, ovegt Garr
den. In answer to my inquiries, it was stated that
Mr. -Robert Bristowe had left the hotel a week pre.
'trimly without settling hie bill—which was, hew.'
ever, of very small amount, as he penally paid
every evening—and had not since been heard of;
neither had he taken Ms luggage 'with him. - This
was odd, though the period stated would have giv

day it was stated be hadarrivedthate
