A "Giantess", who has been for some time past exhibiting herself in a booth at the foot of Saltmarket, was, on Monday, taken to the Police Office for examination, in reference to the sudden death of her husband. It was alleged that the parties had been drinking on Saturday night, when they quarrelled, and that the giantess struck her smaller half a blow on the head with a heavy piece of wood, which caused a deep wound. On Sunday, he died, and a rumour was raised that his death was caused by the injury, which led to the apprehension of the female. A surgical examination of the body, however, has taken place, from which it appears that no connection can be traced between the injury on the head and the cause of death. The giantess has accordingly been liberated.
