Cr Where did the Age get all the water it reported
yesterday. It was certainly not in the River; and we
notice it 'merely to say that such a discrepancy in the
count of the different papers, will have the effect of
'deo:troy* all cot:duinice abroad iu any of our state

will be deli :erel to-m9rrote (Wednesday) evening, in
tha Temp:tau:lr. Hill, Smithfield st.
From the Baltimore Sun.
An intense excitement prevailed yesterday morning
in'the neighborhood of the Cathedral, in, consequence
of it young; and respectable female having Leen brutally
'-nituale.red in the street on the previous evening. On
'entrai , can learned that Ml:is Anna Maria Bnrko, aged
- twenty eight years, daughter of Mr. Wm. B. Burke,
,aexton'of Emory Chapel, residing in the family of Ran
d& H. Mottle, Esq.: whilst passing along Mulberry
street., directly opposite the Cathedral, had been knock
ed down ; and had died from the wounds she had re
'ceived in the course of the night. A jury was sum-
moiled over the body yesterday morning, by A. Green
field cor mer, in presence of his Honor the Mayor,
who conducted the investigation. On examination of
Ilia body, In presence of the jury, a severe gash was
visible behind the light ear. fracturing the scull, and
(.40{ag a portion of the bone into the brain. which is
s ijposed to have been the tiru blow received. A noth
eegash, about 3 inchos in length was visible on her right
eyebrow, which may have been inflicted by falling on
tae paveirmi, as well as a cut on h-r upper lip. A se
vare blow had also been received on the right jaw,
breaking the bone, and knocking out one of her teeth.
Twhich'was ovirliently inflicted while she lay insensible
'on the pavement. After examining the body the jury
'aired ititO.another room. when a post motlem exami
mttioa of the body took plac.. conducted by Ors.. Pe
rkins, 'Thomas Ilueltler, and Donovan. In the mean
while the following persons were examined, in an 'en
deavor, if possible, to ferret out the perpet rt tot of this
attrbeious murder.

11Jahn'A, at the cornor of the :Ole! ,M !berry stet-%
ticarlifin framer Mr. John I'. Morris's dmir--she did
tint know who struck her, Or whether he was black or
*hiCe--heard a manfolleming her from the curlier of
rhirlos street; and when ;he reached the corner of il t ri
alley h knocked her down without saying a word—
that she lay insensible fur souse time, and when she
'came to crawled to Mrs. Poultney's door and rang tie
bell. Witness brought her a basin of water, and en
deavored to bind op her woand—whilst washing her
. .quonth one of her jaw teeth fell cut—finding she could
not stop the bleeding she took her around, with the as
-1;4413w of a servant man, to Mr. niale's, and remain
'ea :With her until she died, at 4 in she morning-. Wi
t. ness had known thodeceased about a year, and has no
idea who committed the act, nor does she know wheth
er ,she had nay enemies.
Mr. and Mrs. Mottle stated to the jury that the de-
;:deceased had lived with them about three years, acid
` 1 that she was loved and respected by all in the home,
from thmwelve3 (lowa to the servant.; in the Ifteh:i.
She was generallyemplovecl as a nurse and 80aIngtre:zA
—that a i yanag Than by the narno of Johnson bad paid
bila.additsSes to her about a year ago, but not recently
--impitosed. he anisea his attentions on account of the
oircurnshiade of his ha v ing but one hand and being un
able to support a family.
Mr.oe.orge Kraft, d brtithei-in-laW of the decedicd,
Ail not know that any one had been paying attentions
Ito her since Mr. Johnsonnever heard her say why he
lubiceased visiting her=;-,: . lid not think she had any en
mities., •
• Mr. Wesley Burke, brother of the deceased, has no
;idea, of who could have committed the act—his sister
had no enemies to his knowledgn—had not seen her
since last Tuesday.
. . .
Mr. Johnson, the person alluded to as having paid
attentions to her was next called to testify. He stated
drat he had ceased visiting her from the conviction
that his circumstances would not admit of marriage—
that ho had still respected her and that they were on
good terms up to the time of her death. Whenever
they met he always stopped and spoke to her. There
was no rival in the mutter, and has not heard of any
?Coe addressing her since.
The jury being under the impression that the de
ceased had been mistaken by the assassin for someone
else, and from the tact of her having a few momenta
lalarcire came from Mr. Puultney's house, summoned
• _ Miss Laura Baconhart. a young girl living in Mr. P's.
'family. She stated that she had been living in the
'family nearly ayear. having previously came from the
,country. ; She did not know of any one that harbored
towards her, or that would do her an injury
- *never seen the deceased but once or twice.
7he doctors having closed their postmortem exami
. najion new reported to the jury that she had died from
a piece Rt . ; he skid' being driven into the brain, caused
- „latithe Wow on ;be hack of the hiitid; that there was
• ,no appearance of any sensual violence having been com
m[ tte4 pn her person, and that she had lived a life of
chastity acid virtue. The jury therefore returned a ver
dict in ac:ordaace with the facts—that she had come
to her death by blows inflicted by some person un
known to tbe jury.
Drs. Perkins and Tboteas Buckler remained with
• her daring the night, and eyery remedy which medical
skill eoold suggest were resorted to in vain.
Ais flonor, the Mayor has, we perceive, promptly
rorpied a reward 01000 for the wrest of the Murder
' eri and . we hope that nothing will be left undone that
can lead to the detection and punishment of so great an
T. 43.—Since the above was in type we learn from
Dr. Pericins, who was not examined hefose the jury, that
she stated to him that she heard some obi approaching
behind her, and when opposite the end of the alley she
Otepped on one side to let hint pass, at which moment
the first wound on the hack. of the head was inflicted,
and after she fell the two others on the forehead and
the left jaw were given in rapid succession, she sup
posed with a heavy bludgeon. She continued sensi
ble until about if?. o'clock, though in great agony,
when she commenced to sink, and at 4 o'clock ex
At ten o'clock last night no clue had been discover
ed that could attach suspicion to any one as the perpe
trator of the horrid deed, although the police had been
during the day on a sharp look out The arrest of
Chaney for housebreaking, the report ii)frehichwegn.ve,
led to a current report thrOughout the city that the
inurderer.was arrested, while late la* evening it was
rumored that one of the servants in; the family was
strongly suspected, and about to be arrested, which,
we learn, was equally incorrect. A gentleman resi
ding in the neighborhood of the Cathpdral informs us
that. on Tuesday night last he beard ; a loud scream,
and not fifty yards from the spot where the murder wan
committed, found a respectable lookiiig woman lying
in great agony from a blow she had received on the
head, by some person unknown. She was conveyed
home by some persons who happened to be passing
that knew her, since which she ha.snot been heard
from. A negro woman was also knocked down at the
corner of College alley and Mulberry street, on Friday
night last, and is still lying ill from the effects of the
blow. She was also robbed of some bundles of shop
ping she had with her. A negro matt was also arrest
ed on Thursday night on Mulberrey street, near 'Park,
with a large knife in hand, pursuing Dr. Dunovan's
servant man. The attention of the; police cannot
therefore be too strongly directed to this neighbor
