LIVERPOOL.—MYSTERIOUS MURDER OF A WIFE BY HER HUSBAND. On Thursday last, an inquest which had been twice adjourned, was held on the body of a young woman, who was found dead in bed the previous Saturday. The hus- band required an inquest to be held on the day that she was found .dead, as he wanted to proceed immediately to sea but as it could not be held on that day, oh Monday, a post mortem examination was held by Mr. Hill, and from the anoearanee of the body it was found necessary to call in the aid of a celel)ra,el anatomist, Mr. Long, and they both came to the conclusion that she had died from strangulation, by manual compression on the neck. The husband was taken into custody and another man who had been sleeping in the same bed with them during the night, he being a friend of the husband w; s accommodated with a part of his bed, in consequence of his being too drunk to proceed to his own lodgings. On the inquest the husband deposed, that his wÎ,) was taken ill in the morning of Saturday, and he got up and 0 1:1 gave her some brandy, and went to sleep again, and when he awoke he found that she was dead. They had only been ma: ried the preceding Thursday, but had been quarrelling in consequence of her refusal to cohabit with him without being married, as he said that he could get married cheaper in Limerick than here. The verdict of the jury was, that she had been murdered by her husband Charles Collager, and lie was committed to take his trial accordingly, but his friend was acquitted.
