DOMESTIC TRAGEDIES. I A sad domestic tragedy was enacted at Lower Heyford, a Northamptonshire village, when Mary Nightingale, wife of a platelayer, murdered her fourteen-months'-old daughter and committed suicide in a most determined manner. She, filled a small bath with water to the depth of five inches, and laid the child face downwards in it. Her next act was to kneel down and place her own head in the water, and was still in this position, quite dead, when the tragedy was discovered. Mrs. Nightingale had, it is stated, been very depressed recently. At Branstone, a small Leicestershire vil- lage, an old man named Thomas Curistian, aged 70, who had recently been discharged from Leicester Asylum, suddenly jumped out of bed, and obtaining a piece of rope, placed it around his wife's neck, and hung her to the bed-post. He then left the room. The woman, however, managed to unfasten the knot, and going downstairs, was horrified to discover her husband hanging dead from a nail on the pantry door.
