London, March 26.
A dispatch from Melbourne says that Deeming, the murderer, has confessed to having killed his wife and four children at Rain Hill, Liverpool and that he also murdered the last two women who were found in White Chapel. It is believed that he also killed the other White Chapel unfortunates and that the Jack the Ripper mystery is solved. The police of this city, however, affect to belittle the story and claim that Deeming could not have been in London at the time of the last two Whitechapel murders. On the other hand it is asserted that there is no certainty that Deeming was out of England at all during the White Chapel murders and it is further pointed out that jack the Ripper's last murder coincided in point of time with the Rainhill tragedy.
