LOVERS' QUARRELS. Matilda Naylor, a pretty, fair-haired girl, with great simplicity of manners, was brought before Mr. Paget, at the Thames-street Police-court, on Tuesday, charged with attempting to commit suicide in the waters of the Regent's Canal at Limehouse. A police. constable of the K division stated that he was on duty at the top of Salmon's-lane last night, and heard that a female had plunged into the canal from the bridge. He found the prisoner on the bank. She had just been taken out of the water, and was nearly insensible. She said she had been quarrelling with her young man, and that caused her to make the rash attempt on her life. Mr. Paget asked the prisoner if she had anything to say, and she replied in a simple and artless manner, I quarrelled with the young man I have been keeping company with." Mr. Paget: And that caused you to commit this wicked act ? The prisoner Yes, sir. John Wallace, a youth, said he had been keeping company with the prisoner for three months. He left her at the corner of the Dog-row, Mile-end, last night at a quarter past ten o'clock. They had some words, and she would not let him see her home, and said she could go home by herself. The mother of the prisoner was desired to enter the witness-box, and she said, "I know nothing about it at all. My daughter left home very comfortably yesterday afternoon, at half-past two o'clock." Mr. Paget remanded the prisoner for a week to the Clerkenwell House of Detention, where she would have the benefit of the spiritual advice and consolation of the worthy chaplain. Mr. Paget at the same time directed the mother of the girl to attend the court when her daughter was again brought up. The mother: Please, air, can I see my daughter? Let me see her. Mr. Paget: Yes, you can see her. Speak to the gaoler. The prisoner was removed from the court crying for her mother, with whom Roche, the gaoler, soon arranged an interview.
