Hartford, Conn. Aug. 30. Joseph
Breed a bank cashier, this morning
committed suicide by cutting his
throat. Mr. Breed came down town
from his residence at 8 o'clock this
morning and called upon his brother
George, who is book-keeper in an
iron store. After a brief conversa
tion he went to a hardware store next
door to the bank and purchased a
razor. Heathen went into the bank
and, jtjLa hallway at the rear of the
building, cut his throat dying in twen
ty minutes. He leaves a widow, but
Breed had been employed as agent
by several large property-holders. So
far as can now be ascertained, the
shortages in these accounts amount
to about $20,000. A gentleman with
whom the dead cashier is believed to
have confided his troubles on Tues
day, says the total amount of the em
bezzlement will not exceed $ao,ooo,
divided between the trust funds of
tno estates. The funds of the bank
are not involved. The first misstep
is supposed to have been taken nearly
ten years ago, and the rest have been
unavailing efforts to recover. At
least it seemed inevitable that expos
ure must come, and he preferred
death to facing the disgrace.
Richmond, Aug. 30. Jim Bearfield
colored, came in from Mr. W. D.
fields' plantation, about four miles
from this place, this morning, with
two wounds, one in the neck and one
in the head; the latter will prove a
very bad one. he will lose a thumb
and probably his hand. His statement
is that fifteen men armed with six
shooters and Winchester riEes, came
to his house at 1 o'clock last night
and told him to open the door, that
they had come for him. He said he
had done nothing to be arrested for,
and did not open the door until they
shot into the house and hit htm in the
hand, and then he broke down the
whete he stayed all hutnight, He
states that the cause of this is that he
knew the men that whipped two ne
groe on the tame place about two
weeks ago, and they wanted to kill
mm so ne couia not tell on them.
Others say, however, that Bearfield is
a very bad negro, and is feared and
disliked by his neighbors,
