THE WHITECHAPEL ATROCITY.
MOTHER COMMITTED FOR TRIAL.

Teresa Smith, aged 22, of 88, Catherine-buildings, Cartwright-street, Whitechapel, was again charged, on remand, with illtreating her illegitimate child, Henry Smith, aged four years. - The facts of the case have already been fully reported, and an officer of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children stated during the last week the child had increased two pounds in weight. When the prisoner was arrested by Constable Don she said, "Do not believe it. They are making it up for me." On examining the room, however, he found bloodstains on the wall, and on the right-hand side of the washstand. - Mr. Saunders then committed the prisoner for trial.

POLITICAL RIOT IN WHITECHAPEL.

This afternoon, at the Thames Police-court, William Bitters, Michael Donovan, John Coleman, Horace Ling, James Prosser, and John Kelly, were charged before Mr. Lushington with creating a riot in the Whitechapel-road and assaulting several constables. It appeared that last night Mr. Bryce, one of the Members for the Tower Hamlets, was addressing his constituents at St. Mary's School, Whitechapel, and a large number of roughs and other persons collected. A man was given into custody for assault, when Bitters called on the mob to rescue him, and Eugene O'Neal, a constable, saw him deliberately pick up a paving-stone and hurl it at the police, but he did not see if it hit anybody or not, and O'Neal had his helmet knocked off with a stone. Donovan had a cane-stick in his hand, and was halloaing, shouting, and striking at the constables and others. On reaching Gardiner's, in Whitechapel-road, a rush was made to rescue Bitters, and Jos. Marriott, a plain-clothes constable, seized Donovan. Coleman, who was armed with a shovel, threw it twice amongst the constables, and on the second occasion it struck Constable Bishop on the arm. He then picked up a brick, which he hurled at the police, and it struck James Strongback on the neck. Ling kicked John Bateman savagely on the leg, severely injuring him, and he went to catch hold of Ling, but owing to the injury he had received he fell down, and Constable Don fell over him. Constable Thompson ran after Ling and caught him. Prosser used bad language, and shouted out, "We will give you Parnell!" at the same time kicking Thompson on the thigh. A general scrimmage ensued, and the police were injured by blows, kicks, and stones by the mob; but ultimately the prisoners were lodged at the police-station, and the crowd dispersed. - The Magistrate remanded the prisoner Ling to see how Bateman got on, and sentenced Bitters to two months' hard labour. Donovan would have to find two sureties in 25 pounds to keep the peace for two months; Coleman he sentenced to six months' hard labour, Prosser to six months' hard labour, and Kelly to six months' hard labour.

THE EAST-END ATROCITY.

Teresa Smith, aged 22, of 88, Catherine-buildings, Cartwright-street, Whitechapel, has been again charged, on remand, with ill-treating her illegitimate child, Henry Smith, aged four years. The facts of the case have already been fully reported, and an officer
of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children stated during the last week the child had increased two pounds in weight. When the prisoner was arrested by Constable Don she said, "Do not believe it. They are making it up for me." On examining the room,
however, he found blood stains on the wall and on the right hand side of the washstand. Mr. Saunders then committed the prisoner for trial.
