Execution of a wife murderer.

--Patrick McHugh, who murdered his wife in March last, by deliberately cutting her throat with a razor, was executed at Cincinnati on Friday last. He exhibited the utmost levity in his cell just previous to being led forth to execution, and died with a jest upon his lips. The murderer left a family, consisting of a boy 19 years of age, and two girls aged about 8 and 11 years, all of whom exhibited but little concern in his fate.
