Attempted Suicide. - Mrs. Mary Ray, wife of Thomas Ray, boatswain of the Revenue Cutter on this lake last year, now on the steamer Corwin, Survey Service, at Key West, attempted suicide by drowning yesterday afternoon about one o'clock. Being in debt for board, and laboring under the belief that her husband was neglecting her, in not remitting money to meet her expenses, exasperated somewhat by the receipt of a letter she thought was rather cold, coming from her husband, and deliberately plunged into the water in the Cove, from the dock of Messrs. Smith, Post & Bates, above stated.
The tug Major Dana, Capt. Manwaring, being near by, Capt. M., assisted by Andrew Bortles, Collector, and James Carney, Engineer, rescued her from her situation, and placed her in the cabin of the Dana, in charge of Mrs. Carney, where she was restored. Mrs. C. and the gentlemen above named, were considerate in their care, and much credit is due them for their kindness in saving the woman from a watery grave.
