He had been laboring under a depres sion of mind lor some lime, ana on Wednes day last, after settling up tus entire business, be committed tbe deed. On Wednesday he went to Ztleskiandpar chased ponder and lead, loaded a market, and left home ; first giving bis son a box, which be told him contained all his valuable papers. He then went to the home of Mr. Keeton, where he bad not been for more than two years previous, and inquired if Mr. Keeton was at home. Upon being told that Mr. Keeton was at Big £and furnace, lie started in that direc tion. He eat down on a log by the wayside. A neighbor who was passing was attacted by hU wild look, and inquired what he was doing there. Mr. Brewer clasped his bands (o his head, and said, “ Oh, my bead! It hurts so." He then got up, dashed hU gun to tbegrotmd, and started off with the neighbor. The man became alarmed, and started ncro*s a field by a path that led away from the road, bnt was soon brought back by the report ofthe gnn. and found that the mlcido had placed the gun in his month, touched the trigger Mlh an iron weed, the discharge blowing ofl the whole top of his bead. The mnskft is supposed to have been charged with a qn -rter of a pound of pow der ard a bar ot lead, the amount of bis pur chase at Zalceki, at no part of It coaid be found. Two boys—one of them a son—who were returning‘from school, were within a hundred yards ot him and saw him commit the fatal deed. Attempted AeeaeeUiatloD of tbe Etonian ambassador to France* Tbe Paris correspondent of the London Ikiiiy jVctr* writing on February fill, save: Baron de Bndberg, the Rasilan Ambassador, who baa just returned to Paris from St. Petersburg after a long conjr, narrowly escaped assassination In the refresh ment-room ot the Verviers stall-O In Bel gium. While at table, Baron de Meyendorff, son of a celebrated Bosnian diplomUlst,came up to him and said, “ Bon four, B iron,” ** W T hat, are yon here ?” replied Boron de Bndberg, who evidently knew him. An altercation followed in the Russian language, and after the lapse of a few seconds, Baron de Meyendorff struck Baton de Budberg In the lace, and was In the act of drawing a sword from a stick to assault him. when M., Beckman, a writer on the staff of the Temps, who saw the movement, rnebed upon him and snatched the sword-cane from bis band. Thereupon Baron De Meyendorff drew a revolver from his pocket and levelled it at the Russian Ambassador. Tbe latter exclaimed. “Secure him, he Is a mtdmtn.” A waiter at the buffet, with much pressure of mind, took away the pistol, and the Baron de Meyendorff was taken into custody by the police. It sectns that soma lime ago the Baron had sent & challenge to a French gentleman,, who refused to fight him because Baron de Bndberg had certified that ho waa not in his right senses. De sirous to avenge himself on the Russian Am bassador ft>r this slight, Baron de Meyen dorff bad laid In wait lor him at the Belgian frontier for a whole fortnight. The affair, which 1* recounted to m«* hr an is yet imperfectly known In Paris. It will naturally create a great sensation.
