tupnosed that the murderer, after committing tho 6™* dragged the body into the oellAr, and there, with a saw and a large knife, sot to work to reduce it to the state in which it has been found, and he must have removed the fragments of bono and thrown them away, or buried them two or three at a time, until he bad got rid of them all. One of the cars has been found, which ha*, singularly enough, led to th* Men-tification of the body.
