In the early part of the present year her husband enlisted in one of the regiments of the Sickles brigade, and was killed at the battle of Williamsburg.--When the news of this battle arrived here, and the wife found the name of her husband among the list of the killed in that action. she became almost frantic with grief, and notwithstanding the efforts of many kind friends to console her, she made known to several that she had no longer any object worth living for, and was therefore determined to die. Shortly after this, while crossing the ferry from Brooklyn to the city, she made an attempt to throw both herself and child-- the one above mentioned — into the river. T
