Himself in the Head. [From the New York Herald of Sunday.] . Between 5 and 6 o'clock lust evening a terrible tragedy occurred in Ninth avenue, corner of Twentieth street, resulting in the dratliof a yrtung lady, and, in all probabil ity, the death ot the assassin. It seems that for the past elght.or nine months a widow named Mrs. Fanny Wlilard, about tlilrty two years ol njc, who is f aid to have been employed In the World newspaper olllce in tha canacltv-of a compositor, had been boarding at the house of Mrs. Vamlemnrk, N0..II8 Ninth avenue, corner of Twentieth street.- She occupied tho Iront parlor, and w hlffhlv esteemed bv all in the house. For some time it has been presumed that she has kept company with one or iwo par ties, none of whom, however, were known to anv of the occupants of the house. , Oifoueor two occasions she had been heard to remark that It certain gentleman had mule nrooosals to her, bui she hud re fused the oiler, and that she could not get rid of him. LaBt evening; eheieit tne oince about 5 o'clock, and rode up In a car, and it Is presumed that sho was followed by the murderer. On getting out of the car she was seen' to stop and speak to a young man who was passing down the avenne. She soon entered her residence, and had not been inover a half hour before ayoung man entered and called for Funny Wltlnrd. She opened the door, and he immediately shoved past into her room. The deeeusd was lit the time sweeping her room. Short ly after he bad entered the room some words were heard to pass between them, and she was heard to sav, '-Torn, you can have the room to yourself." Soon after this she came out and went down stairs with a coal ' scuttle tor some coal, and on returning to her room, und when nt tho head of the basement stairs, on the first floor, was met by the party in question, who drew a pistol and fired at her, the ball entering the upper part of her breast. She ran to the door leading Into the rear pr l.ir, occupied by Mr. and Mrs. 1 William H. Reed, and Jnstasshe opened the door he agala fired, the ball passing through the door and grazing tho side of Mrs. Reed, who fortunate! v jumped back and thus saved her own life. The deceased stngncr ed into a small bedro ui adjoining, and fell to the floor, exclaiming, "l ain shot," aud Instantly expired. I The assassin, after tiring the second shot, ran into the deceased's room, and, placing the muzzle of the pistol to his own head, fired, the ball taking effect in bis brain. The niarm was iustantly given, and Cap tain Williamson,-with several olliuers of the Sixteenth Precinct, hastened to the spot. The greatest excitement prevailed lit and about the neighborhood, aud the Coroner was immediately notifieJ. About 10 o'clock last nighc the assassin, who, from papers found upon bis person, is presumed to be Thomas Burke, was con veyed to St. Luke's Hospital. ; No hopes are entertained of his recovery. He is a man about thirty-live years ot ago, and is said to have been atone time on the police. Himself in the Head. [From the New York Herald of Sunday.] Fiendish Attempt at Assassination. [From the New Orleans Times of the 4th inst.] A fiendish assault, which may result In the loss of lile, took place at the headquar ters of General SlicridanJ yesterday. The circumstances, as narrated by General Hartsuft and Colonel Lee, of the Adjutant General's office, are as follows : 1 General H., lor some time past, has been annoyed by drunkenness on the part of a few headquarters clerks, all of whom are detailed soldiers, and in 1 rder to put a stop to the evil has relieved several who were caught intoxicated, and ordered them to their regiments, where the duty is not so pleasant nor the quarters so agreeable. Private Charles Donohue was thus re lieved a few days ago, and has since been 011 a big spree. About o'clock yester day he entered the room at headquarters, where he formerly worked, and going to a desk at which private G. Klein sat at work, caught the latter by the hair, drew back bis bead, ond cut his throat in a horrible manner with a razor. The wounded man, who had been alone in the apartment, ran down stairs, the blood gushiug from the gaping cut in all direc tions. Assistance was at once rendered him by Surgeons Asche and White, aud in a short lime he was removed to his room on Baronne street, the hemorrhge, how ever, not having been stopped. The wound Is three or loor inches long, and the wea pon narrowly missed the arteries; tbe pros tration is great from excessive loss of blood, and death may result from this cause. Tbe bloody-minded villain Donohue was promptly arrested by the orderlies on duty at headquarters, and handcuffed. He was (till under the influence of liquor when we saw him, and it was supposed from his drunken muttering that he had committed the crime under the impression that the Order for bis return to camp life had been at the instigation of Klein. Both Donohue and Klein belonged to the Seventeenth Regular Infantry. The former is a young inau, good looking, but tis features are highly inflamed with drink. Klein is represented as quiet, peaceable and intelligent, and is much liked by bis officers. Frightful Adventure of a Young Lady With a Mad Woman. j There is an old lady, who lives near the corner of College and First streets, who, some years ago, was in affluent circum stances and who yet, by the way, is far from suffering for the want of this world's goods. She lives in a bonse to herself, fur nished luxuriously, occupying the attic fooms, and allowing those underneath to remain unoccupied, either by herself or any one else. Several . years ago she bad three neices living with her, but in a lreak ot insanity drove them off. Since then she lias been dwelling all alone, her only com panion beiDg a cat, w hich she imagines A protector against her enemies. When any neighbor visits her, she invariably locks the doors leading up to her dormitory, in or der, as she asserts, to keep out' intruders, bo secluded does she keep herself that on one occasion she was not seen moving About ber house for aweek, and when some neighbors, who feared some ill bad befallen ber, climbed through a window and found ber, she was almost at the point of death, and it was quite hard work to resuscitate her. ' . - - ;. Yesterday evening a young lady residing In her neighborhood called upon the old laay. Btie conducted cer visitor up into the attic, locking the door alter her as usual. The yonng lady happening to make some remark about the cat, the old woman observed that Tabby was her friend, aud protector from all enemies, and declaring that her visitor was one of the latter, flew 'at ber "tooth and nail," as the saying runs. The young lady proving a little too stout for tier, she gathered the poker. The as sailed party caught her arm, and in trying to wrest the weapon from her, accidentally brought it violently In contact with her aged caput, stunning the old lady consider ably. The young lady then sought safely in flight, being convinced that she was in the presence of a crazy and desperate wo man. -The old lady recovered from the ef fects of the accidental blow, and followed ber to tho front door. ' The affair caused considerable excitement among the neighbors, aud we have no doubt will eventuate in a case of tnquirendo de lu-tMticoiLouuwill Journal. . 1 "Lives there a man with foul io dead, W ho nTr to himielf hath said." , Roback'i Bitten ther are the best , ' 1 To appetite ther lire a leit : . . 1 ' There are none ao good, none to pare, DieeaeeaoD will toeorely oore.
