SUICIDES.-Three suicides, all of persons in the most respectable ranks

of life, took place in the end of last week. The first was that of a Mr. Robley, a gentleman possessed of a fortune of twelve or fifteen hundred a year, who swallowed prussic acid. Mr. Robley was a per- son of extremely eccentric manners, but of no inconsiderable acquire- ments, and of rather a superior understanding. On Friday, a young gentleman-M. de Poussaie, residing on the northern bank of the Re- gent's Canal-shot himself in the mouth. He was found, by his family, in the most horribly disfigured state; eight of his teeth driven out by the ball, and a large wound below the left ear, where the ball had escaped. On the afternoon of the same day, Captain Glengall 'Moseley cut his throat, at his lodgings in Mount Street, Grosvenor Square, in such a manner as to produce almost instantaneous death. The cause as- signed for the conduct of M. de Poussaie was gambling, in consequence of which he had been reduced to great difficulties. Captain Moseley was suffering wider bilious fever.

William Hall, for two years butler in the family of Lady Louisa Harvey, shot himself, a few days ago, in a fit of derangement, induced by his having received his discharge for some irregularities of which he had been guilty. He effected his purpose by placing the muzzle of a gun to his mouth and discharging it with his foot.

A boy named Dix, only sixteen years of age, cut his throat on Mon- day morning. He was tbe son of a respectable pilot in the neighbour- hood of the Bricklayer's Arms. On Saturday, he was beaten by an elder brother for stopping out late. He went to see his aunt on Sun- day without leave, and his father said he would thrash him the next morning. He said to one of his brothers, on going to bed, that he should make them repent the thrashing of him. Next morning, he was found, at an early hour, in the back kitchen, quite dead.
