Another wife Poisoner.

--Wm. Weaver, of Bloomfield, Perry county, Pa., on the day before Christmas lost his wife, who died suddenly in convulsions. Three days after the funeral Weaver disappeared. A girl he had been attentive to was missing at the same time. A few days ago it was discovered that Weaver had married the girl and gone to Black Hawk, Chester county. It was then found out that shortly before his wife's death Weaver had purchased poison to kill rats, but that no rats had died. He was accordingly arrested on the 7th inst. for poisoning his wife.
