Attempted suicide.

--On Wednesday evening about half-past 5 o'clock, two negroes, passing across Myers's bridge, heard cries as of some one in distress, and on going to look, found a man struggling in the water. They pulled him out and took him to the police station, where he gave the name of Charles Reins. It subsequently appeared that he boarded with Mr. C. Sauer, of the Monticello Hotel, and before leaving the house deposited a note next door, stating that he was tired of life, and intended to destroy himself; that they would never see him again. He was kindly cared for and furnished with dry clothing at the station-house. It is stated that Reins was drunk at the time, and endeavored to extinguish the vital spark by a plunge into the water while in a fit of the horrors.
