Attempted Suicide by a Despondent Lover—
How an Indifferent Mistress Became a
Day before yesterday, a young man, not
yot twenty ycarsof ago, named Joseph Uothcr,
attempted self-destruction bv dischurorliur tho
contents of a pistol Into his body, after first
lucmng niniseii in nis ncn-room, at mo resi
dence of his parents, on Elm-street, near Lib
erty. The cirsumstances, as related to us by
is pnysician, are as follows:
At a masquerade, given bv the Serilia So
ciety, some months ago, he met for the first
time a young girl Whoso name, rrom mo
tives of delicacy, we withhold who impressed
him in such a manner as to render him almost
wholly unfit for the performance of his iaily
duties. The girl was quite young, and seemed
to feel somewhat flattered by his attentions,
and the pair Boon become quite intimate
About a week or twoago he.mado her apro
posul of marriage, which was incontinently
and neremntorilv refused. The drl atntorl llmt
she had always esteemed him very highly as
a menu, ana nou never regarded mm 111 any
other light; she was quite yonng and would
not, under any circumstances, marry for
some time to come, and would be compelled
tu discontinue his acquaintance forever, if
ho persisted in his suit.
Lover-like, he did persist, and she, true to
her throat, entirely refused to see him. After
several repeated and unsuccessful efforts to
gain an interview wilh her, ho wroto her a
note, stating that death was preferable to life
wiiuuiib mu jiriviieu 01 ueillg aumtuou 10
her society; repeating in the most fervid
terms his admiration for her, and bidding her
Ho did not threaten self-destruction save
n the indirect manner we have stated, and
the girl, unconscious of bis intention, paid
no attention to his letter, and believed that
she was finally rid of a friend she would
never cease to regret and a lover whose pas
sion she could never return. The young
man did not seem to be aware that love.
like a sun-glass, if held steadily for a sufficient
icngtn 01 time, would kindle a name, deter
mined to end his life now that his hopes had
been dostroyed, and seek In another the sym
pfithy he failed to find in this.
Accordingly, as wo have already said, day
liefbre yesterday lie procured a nistol. and
after loading it placed the muzzle against his
leu breast and discharged tne contents into
his bosom; whether fortunately or unfortun
ntcly we leave tho render, when the sequel
has been made known, to judge. The ball
struck one of the ribs, and passing around his
body lodged near the spine, causing a painful
and somewtint severe, aitnougn not danger
When tho circumstance was mado known
to tho girl, partly actuated by remorse, and
partly by an inherent regard for the vountr
man, in wnom now sne icn reaiiy mwrcsien,
she ran Immediately to his residence, and
hiding her eves, which wore dimmed and
red with the burning tears she had shed, upon
nis wounded breast consented to marry Lira
if he would only convalesce.
The yonng man seemed to receive new
life from this. So great was the effect of the
mental peace caused by the few words she
had uttered upon bis physical system, that
all the health and buoyancy of the young
nature ot nis Deioved apparently nowed into
his weak and wounded frame. After kissing
her hand they were left alone, and a long
conversation ensued, which concluded to the
entire satisfaction of both the parties.
Next Sunday, if the young man is still
alive, the pair will bo married, and there
seems to be little doubt that the betrothal
made under such extraordinary circum
stances will end iu an agrceuble honeymoon.
The heart of the young man, so severely
w otinded by the bright eyes of his inamorata,
will soon bcel under ttie treatment it is now
receiving, una we earnestly hone he may
never again be wounded by any otner
weapon, or have cause to regret that a
friendly rib not only preserved his life, but
gave luro a new one. . . ,
