The Attempted Matricide.--Mrs. Bosley, the colored woman who was
recently cut down with an ax by her daughter, in Elizabeth street,
was able to appear in Court yesterday, although still very weak.
Her daughter, and Elijah Martin, the colored fellow who is charged
with being the instigator of the crime, were brought before Justice
Brennan for examination. Mrs. Bosley made an affidavit charging
her daughter and Martin with the attempt to murder her. The examination
will be continued today.
