ALLEGED ATTEMPTED MURDER AND SUICIDE. At Birmingham, on Wednesday, David Mackie, a metal roller, recently returned from the United States, was charged before the magistrates with attempting to kill his wife by cutting her throat, and afterwards attempting to kill himself. Kate Mackie, the wife, said on the 6th inst. she and her husband had a quarrel because she refused to accompany him back to America. She went upstairs to put on her dress and he followed her, caught hold of her round the neck, and cut her throat with a razor. He was not sober at the time. She ran down- stairs into her mother's arms, and was taken to the hospital. She had been married five years, and they had had no previous quarrel. After the assault upon his wife Mackie was found lying upon the floor of the bedroom with his throat cut, and a razor by his side. The medical evidence was to the effect that the wound which the prisoner had inflipted on himself was more dangerous than that of his wife, and for some days his life had been in jeopardy. The prisoner was committed to take his trial at the assizes, Bail was allowed.
