MURDER OF A SHIPMASTER.--Mr. Sprague, a shipmaster,
belonging to Brixham, near North Shields, died in North
Shields yesterday morning from the effects of a fracture of
the skull and other injuries which he received on Sunday
night, in the Borough-road, in this town, while attacked by
a man and a woman. The police are on the track of the
murderers. A desperate highway robbery was committed
upon Mr. Erakine Mather, near the same place, on
Thursday night. He was robbed of his gold watch, and
ill-used. The robbers, four men, are in custody.
