ATTEMPTED MURDER AT I NEWPORT. J '——" I Cutting a Paramour's Throat. I Festivities" at a Double Marriage I A shocking affair occurred in Newport late on S-i.turrlay night. A man named Joseph Leysho; a mas ,n by trade, livinc wit h a woman named Sarah 11 cv •f.cmpted U> cut her r.broal vifch table knife, aiiJ iiiH.cted a wound which mjo-ht have speedily ended her life. The prisoner and Rees have been cohabiting together for about four years. Latterly they have been living in rooms in a house in Constable's lane, a thoroughfare leading out of Commercial- road. This has been the scene of unwonted festivities "ince Friday, in consequence of two weddings taking place from it. One of these was I between the daughter of a man named Hughes and H a seaman, and the second between another daughter of the same man and the prisoner's brother. Leyshon himself appears to have taken a pro- minent part in the rude rejoicings. Amongst H other things, a nine-gallon cask of beer was ■ purchased, and kept on tap for all comers. W On Saturday night some friends of Leyshon accompanied him out for a walk, and being desirous of smarten- ing up for the evening's proceedings, prisoner went to a barber's to get shaved. Prisoner is only 35 years of age, and probably the woman Rees grew suspicious of what his intentions might be. She accordingly followed him about, and even penetrated the hairdresser's sanctum in searchofher paramour. This conduct incensed the prisoner, aud on his return home, whilst partaking of supper, he reminded her of it. He had a knife in his hand, as he was eating some bread and meat, and exclaiming, You I will kill you," he" sprang up and, seizing her, drew the knife across the right side of her throat, mstking a cut over three inches long. H The other men and women in the house at once W disarmed the man and sent for medical aid. Or being examined the wound was found to be of superficial nature, no artery having been severed. W Prisoner was given into custody, and will be charged at the police-court to-day with attempt- ing to murder the woman.
