Robert M, Jamison, aged forty years, of No, 507 Green street, in this city, committed suicide b cutting his throat with a razor at Ids residence shortly before d o'clock, lie had recently been dismissed from his position of civil engineer ou tho Gcrmun town & Norristowu railroad, and this, it u thought, so pjeyed on his mind as to lend ta the taking oi bift life. For several weeks past tho deceased Juid manifested signs of melancholia, but medical aid was not thought necessary. Dr. L. W. Eced was then suinruone'l. and, after prescribing sedatives, advi J his patient to rest in bed and tliat a nuno be hired to attend him. Mr. Jamison followed these directions and shortly after wards, his brother-in-law, Mr. James O Barnet, who lives in the house, entered tho room. Mr. Jam ban asked him if he had a revolver, aud on Mr. Barnet's inquiring what ho wanted with a weapon, yqvlicd. "To drive you outof the houte.f This Wiethe first symptom that the patient's mind was really deranged, a.s hi, relations with his brother-in-law had hitherto been of a friendly nature. At about 5:45 in the morning he left hi bed and wtmt to the window. His wife and sister coaxed him backed into beu again. He patted tho former's cheek ta she drew the sheet over him, then suddenly leaped out on the floor and rushing tu the bureau, pulled out a razor, which ha I been gsecreted in the back of one of tin drawers. With a shriek his wife and ter sprang to snatch the weapon from hi. grasp, bat lie had already commenrvJ slashing at his throat. A terrible truu followed. Mr. Barnet tried to save U& brother-in-law, but was compelled to from die room to save his own life. Mis. and Miss Jamison liattled bravely wi h the madman, but with the blood stn liming from a gaping gash ho dragged tip two females to tlh3 top of the stairway leading down to the hall, where he in freeing himselffrom their ni . He then made several more slashes at his throat, Kjvering tho carotid arteries, and rolling to tho hallway below expired almost instantly. Mrs. Jamison ran to trie window of the room, which is on the second story, and, throwing open the knitters, waved her blood-covered arms mid frantically yellul murder. Two MikJoIlii II. 1 lover and William II. Laridis heard her cries and at once summoned Chief of Police Rodenbauh. They burnt in the btreet door and entered the hall, where a siekeningsight met their view. Extended ou the floor lay the just expiring suicide covered from head to foot with blood. The stairway and wall, :t well iw the room above, were bespatter d with blood. On till sidej over the courM taken by the suicide were evidence of the desperation with which he fought to take his life and of the heroic struggle of the two ladies who tried to avert the caUustro p!ic. News of the pad affair spread to all parte of the town, and soon an excited and inquiring crowd collected in front of the house. Coroner Aiken was notified, aud pcrinitvdon was given to bury the body. Besides Indng dNmiod from his jkm tion it upjH?ars that Mr. Jamison lat wvh fuiletl to sell some property belonging u an estate of which he was executor. also added to his melancholy.

While there Mrs. Jamison n ceived a telegram from her husband u ing that slie neexl not hurry home, as In waa taking care of the children. Thi also was an evidence of tho unsoundnes of Ida mind. Mrs. Jamison at once cam homo. Some time ago Mr. Jamison wa partially blind and underwent a surgical oieratiou to his eyes. A NEW COMPANY.

Ho has made a good President and the people are satisfied." "Hasn't Colorado got a favorite son or two? Might not Senator Hill havo some expectations?" Oh, no," and the Senator laughed a little. "Hill is only anxious to succeed himself. There are plenty of people in Colorado willing to be President, but I haven't heard of anybody who expects to be. Noj there is no doubt about our carrying tho State. Of course they beat us the last time, but there was a faction fight among tho Republicans. There was treacherv. It is admitted that Hill beat Campbell. I believe Hill boasts of it. He won't boast of it in a year from now. That was a local fight, and there is no reason why nil Colorado Republicans should not voto for tho Republican nominee for President" FEEITY'S ANTECEDENTS.

While in the institution ho was frequently subject to most extraordinary hallucinations, and seemed to be possessed of a peculiar animus against the British government Owing to his strange vagaries, which were evidently the result of an unsound mind, the secretary had considerable trouble with him. Feeny left tho hospital on tho date named, having obtaineu an order for admittance to the House of Providence.

Origin and Sftluiont of nit Indian IMlUculty. Omaha. Neb., Sept. 30. Later reports fully confirm General Howard's statement, recently published in these dispatches, that tho Bannock-Shoshone difficulty is bottled. Sometime ago a familv of at Boss Fork ReMjrvation, were murdered as supposed by Shoshone-, and the braves of the former tribe threatened vengeance against the latter. In working up theca.se it was developed that the Bannock family was wiped out bv a white fnifutop wlin had n natural aversion to red men and great admiration for their personal effects. The Bannocks at Washakie found the trapper's trail and following it up finally captured and killed him, throwing hU body in a creek. When the friends and relatives of the murdered family learned that the outrage had been avenged they declared themselves satisfied, and at tho time of Goneral Howard's departure the best of feeling prevailed between the two tribes.
