The Burdell murder.

--A notorious criminal, named Charles Lewis, was recently executed at Trenton, N. J., for the murder of a jeweller named James Rowland. He was, according to his own story, well acquainted with Dr. Harvey Burdell and Mrs. Cunningham; was in company with Dr. B. on the evening of the murder, and had seen him win a "pile of money" in a Bowery gambling-house. In a recent conversation with his counsel, in the hearing of a Deputy Sheriff, he admitted that he know more of the murder of Dr. B. than he would divulge. No doubt is entertained by those who have been in closest communication with him since his imprisonment that he was the murderer of Dr. Burdell, as well as of others before and since.
