Suicide. - Capt. Smith, of the packet boat Chancellor Kent, informs us that a young lady named Amy Colegrove, from Sardinia, Erie county, put an end to her existence on †he night of the 6th inst. by hanging herself with a shawl fastened around her neck and attached to the top of the door in the ladies' cabin of said boat. She was not discovered until morning, when she was found utterly lifeless, while near Syracuse.
She had for some time shown symptoms of mental derangement, said to be occasioned by some of her friends' objecting to a contemplated matrimonial union, and she had been sent away, attended by her brother, to prevent her intimated design upon her own life; but she succeeded in eluding the vigilance of her attendant, and finally accomplished the fatal deed.
