[by TELEGRAPH. 1 Nelson, June 3. Some time ago, a fisherman named Antonio Webb, deserted his wife and family and fled to Auckland. He was brought back from that city to Nelson, and compelled to provide for those dependent upon him. This he has done pretty fairly since ; but his enforced residence with his wife does not appear to have been pleasing to him, and he and she have lived unhappily. Both are addicted to, drink, the woman more especially, and this afternoon,{while the woman was tipsy, a quarrel arose between the two, and the husband threw a large knife at the woman, which entered her back, and the blade passed between her ribs. June 4. This morning Webb was charged before Mr. Lowther Broad, R. M., with attempting to murder his wife, and was remanded till Monday. The woman has been drinking for some time, and the wound which is an inch wide, cannot for some time be given a definite opinion of as to whether or not it is likely to prove fatal.
