UNNATURAL MOTHER. – On Tuesday last, a respectably-attired young woman called at the house of Mr George Parker, of Wickhamford, near Evesham, and claimed acquaintance with his wife. She had with her a baby about eight months old. Having slept that night at the Parker’s house, she remained till the next night, and consulted them as to lodgings, when they recommended her to Wickhamford public-house. She said she would go, but leave the infant till her return. She left, and has not been seen since. The child has been taken to the workhouse.
