a young fellow confined in the county gaol

Yesterday morning a young fellow confined in the county gaol, for horse-stealing, attempted to destroy himself by tying his arms above the elbows, and then with a razor cutting each arm across: he was discovered by a girl who was carrying him his breakfast, with both arms bleeding and kneeling in the dungeon; upon the girl’s running back and alarming the house, he took up the razor and cut his throat; but proper assistance being immediately procured, we hear that he is in a fair way to recover.
