By the Mails: Murder and Suicide in Charleston

Charleston, Dec 19. A man by the name of JESSE HOXEY who resided near Beaufort, in this State, on Sunday last committed a most brutal murder by cutting the throat of his wife from ear to ear with a razor. He afterwards cut his own throat in a shocking manner. He is supposed to have committed the diabolical act in a state of intoxication, and he was much addicted to that vice. Mr. HOXEY was a native of Massachusetts, and his wife was in possession of a very handsome property. They have left no children.
