Some light has been thrown upon the horrid circumstance of the murder of Mrs. Jeffs, in Monta- gue-place, some years since. It wilt be recollected that this horrid deed was attributed to some relation of the murdered lady, and for which a man natced Jones was tried at the Old Bailey, and acquitted; but for another offence, he was transported, and sootC months back was hanged for some crime io Vtt Dieman s Land. The night before his exeentionbe sent for the Sheriff of the Colony, now in England and confessed himself guilty of many crimes, and several murders; amongst others, that of the unfor- tunate Mro.Jetfs -,Ilorning Herald. ATTEMPTED SUICIDE IN THE BANKRUPTCY COU ItT.-Yesterday week there was a meeting of the creditors of Charles Gregory of Luton, Bedfordshire I The proceedings, as regarded the debts, were not of any interest; but it appeared that at a private exami- nation, a few days since, Commissioner Merivalc I threatened to commit the brother of the bankrupt I unless he explained some imputed acts of coitustof. On this the bankrupt took a large clasp knife frorobJ8 pocket, tore open bis waistcoat and made two throsfs with the open Instrument at his left sice. Severe persons rushed towards the bankrupt, and, after severe struggle, took the knife from him. By the first stroke the bankrupt cut hrmseff, the blood flo*^ copiously, and Gregory fell back apparently in j1 dying slate, to the consternation of the whole Court. The wound was examined but found to be very slight, and by no means dangerous. Further proceeding were adjourned, and the bankrupt then passed examination satisfactorily. HORRIBLE EFFECTS OF DISSIPATION.—A cir- cumstance occurred at Cupar Fife a few days ajo, ,Il calculated to prove, if any thing will, an emphatic warning to drunkards. A woman of the name of Balfour, a very bad character, and the mother ofll family, some of whom, it is to be feared, have followed too wetl her evil example, being one night last week in a state of gross intoxication, either fell into, ot according to some accounts, sat down upon the fi,e, and neither herself nor her daughters being in a-sta'e fit to render assistance, she was scorched in such dreadful manner, that she died in a few days- One account says, that her daughter pushed her iptO the fire. This, it is to be hoped, is not the fact, bØt surely the public interest requires that a report oi < this kind ought to be judicially invest igated.'L-Flfe Herald.
