in Hants, was buried at the latter place a few days since. His body was brought from Germany, where he died. He was the great grandson of the famous Indian warrior of that name, whose fame was so great in India, according to Macaulay, that long after his death the sepoys who fought under him always made a low and reverential salaam when they saw his picture. Wife Murder ia. Prance.—At the Court of Assizes of the Aube, a farm servant, named Malley, has just been tried on a charge of having, at Moulins, on the 25th of March last, murdered his wife by throwing her into the river Aube. A married woman, named Tonnelot, with whom he had cohabited both before and after his marriage, was also charged as an accomplice in the crime. The woman Malley having disappeared on the 25th of March last, the prisoner, a man of very bad character, was immediately suspected of having murdered her, and several circumstances were soon discovered which left no doubt of his guilt. He was accordingly arrested, and, after vainly endea- vouring to combat the evidence against him, at last confessed that at the instigation of the woman Ton- nelot, he had induced his wife to go with him to see some friends at a neighbouring village, but that the woman Tonnelot met them near the river, and they then executed their design of drowning her. In con- sequence of this confession the woman Tonnelot was arrested. The river was dragged, and the body of Malley's wife was found near the spot indicated by him. In court the female prisoner denied her guilt, and attempted to prove an alibi, but failed; while several witnesses deposed that they had' seen her coming from,the direction of the river shortly after the time when the murder was committed. The jury found both prisoners guilty, but with extenuating cir- cumstances, and the court accordingly condemned them to hard labour for life.
