THE MURDER OF LIEUTENANT ROPER.
The following mysterious paragraph appears in a letter of the London correspondent of a West of England paper; —“ A statement has reached me in reference to the late mysterious murder of Lieutenant Roper at Chatham Barracks, which warrants me in saying that we are on the eve of a disclosure in respect to that tragic event which will throw into the shade the sensations and romantic crimes of the last quarter of a century. I must, for the present, content myself by saying that the perpetrator of the deed is this moment considering with his friends whether he will avow his part in the transaction, and deliver himself up for trial or quit his position in society, and leave this country L>r ever.”
