A Merciless Wife.-A murder was committed a few days ago at Frontenard (Saone-et-Loire), by a woman named Robert, on the person of her husband. It appears that the family had long been made-wretched by the man's drinking propensities, and that his wifer frequently beat him when he came home drunk. On one occasion she so nearly killed him that she was tried for the offence, and sentenced to two years' imprison- ment. On her liberation, her husband received her with open arms, and they lived on good terms for'a consider- able time; but he at last returned to his bad habits, and having again gone home intoxicated, she killed him by repeated blows on the head with a pickaxe. She then took her little girl by the hand, saying, "I have settled him this time!" went to the mairie, and gave herself into custody.
