THREATENING TO MURDER.

At the Ramsgate Petty Sessions on Monday, Thomas Butterly, landlord of the "Compasses," was charged with having on that morning threatened to murder his wife.

The complainant deposed:- The defendant is my husband. We have been married not quite twelve months. Between eight and nine this morning the defendant began to ill use me by knocking me across the table, breaking one of my front teeth. I scratched his face and bit his finger, but this was in self-defence. He nearly broke my arm, and said he would murder me before night. I am afraid that he will do me some bodily harm. He has on other occasions than this struck me before, but I have not brought him here for it. My children attend the St. George's National Schools, and I was getting them ready to go there. My husband wanted them to fetch in the cans, and because I would not let them go that they might be in time for school, he ill used me.

Defendant said he hit his wife once, and that was after she had put his finger in her mouth and bit it. He was as desirous as she was for the children going to school, but the getting in of the cans would not have occupied ten minutes, and the children, which were by her former husband, were systematically taught not to obey him.

Mr. Crofton said that complainant had given a good reason for not complying with the defendant's request, and he ought not to have treated her so. If the Bench ordered him to find sureties, he would probably be committed to prison in default; they therefore, in this instance, would order him to be bound in his own recognizance to keep the peace for six calendar months towards his wife, which being done he was discharged.
