The 'Daily Telegraph' this morniog states that a man implicated in tho murder •f Dr Cronin was a passenger from SanlFrancisco by the Mariposa, which arrived here on Wednesday night. The police, it appears, received a cablegram from the American police authorities ordering them to watch the passengers, and offering a reward of 25,000d0l for the arrest of the suspected person. Upon the arrival of the steamer the detectives went on board to make a search, and upon their approach the suspected individual locked his cabin door and declined to come out when ordered by the detectives to do so. He threatened to shoot anyone breaking in, and remained in a state of siege till Thursday, when he succeeded in eludiDg the vigilance of the officers and escaped.
