ATTEMPTED SELF-DESTRUCTION - About a quarter to one o’clock, on Sunday afternoon
Constable Porter confined a convict under sentence, named Moses Hutchinson, for being absent from his gang while attending Divine Worship at the Prince-street Chapel. After the prisoner had been confined in the Cumberland-street watch-house for some time, he asked for a drink of water, which was supplied to him in a tin pot, from which he broke apiece off, and afterwards inflicted a puncture wound on the right side of his throat. Mr. Vaughan, druggist, of Cumberland-street, having certified the case was one which ought to be sent to the Hospital, he was conveyed thither by the police.
