ATTEMPTED SUICIDE. An attempted suicide of an extraordinary and, perhaps, unparalleled character was made on Friday e vening, in la*t wee*, at the mining village of Knutton, North Staffordshire. It appears that in the afternoon Mr. Langley. a gunpowder agent, of Hanlev, sent his carter with 5cwt. of strong blasting powder to the house of Mr. E-pley, of Knutton, and on his arriving Mrs. Espley directed him to place it in a coach-house close by for a short time. While he was doing so a woman c me out of Mr. E-pley s house and told him not to leave the powder in the coach-house, hut the warning being unintelligible to him he did not heed it, hut went at once to a neighbouring colliery to com municate with Mr. Espley, Mrs. E-pley locking the door of the coach hou-e. He had not left the place more than ten minutes when the gunpowder ex- ploded with a tremendous roar, and the coach-houxe was blown into the air. A large crowd speedlv con- gregated when it was discover, d that Mrs. Espley wah lying under the rums, with a heavy beam across her chest. She was removed to the house with as much expedition as pos-ible, but her state was such as to preclude all hope of her recovery,^ and the unfoitu- nate woman died on Saturday evening. She admit- ted that she fired the powder herself, and there appears to he no reason to doubt that at the tune she was in a state of violent mental ayita^ion caused hy domestic un happiness or by some hallucination in respect to her husband's conduct. A man who was pacing the place at the time of the'explosion was struck on his head by a falling brick, and was removed to the North Staffordshire Infirmary at Hanley.
