A New York Tragedy.

--A coal dealer named Ward, residing in Pearl street, New York, attempted to commit murder and suicide, at the residence of his wife, on Wednesday. He had been separated from his wife for some time, but visited her on Wednesday in the hope of obtaining $150, which she had in her possession. Failing to obtain the money, he shot at her twice with a revolver, without effect.--Then, pleading penitence, he solicited a private interview with her, and while in an act of endearment stabbed her three times. He then fled, and on reaching the foot of the stairs shot himself in the abdomen.
