Another Suicide.

We are pained to learn that Mr. William Slaven, for many years a respectable citizen of our county, committed suicide by jumping from the wheelhouse of the Steamer Ne Plus Ultra in the Ohio river, some 80 miles below Louisville. He was on his way to visit his relations in Kentucky, and for several days previous to the occurence hasd been observed by the officers of the vessel to be in a depressed state of mind. Mr. Slaven left a wife and family, and many friends, in this county to mourn his death.

Statesman, Columbia, Missouri, May 26, 1848.
