The Green-Eyed Monster. [by telegraph.] Christchurch, To-day, Last night a man named David M'Nevin was arrested for shooting with a revolver, at John Glanvillo, at Toomer’s boardinghouse. Jealousy is said to have been, the cause of the offence. Later. The following are the particulars of the shooting case at Toomer’s boarding-house last night : —McNevin, who had an affection for one of the servant girls, went home about 11.30 last night, having a revolver in his possession, he entered the passage, and looking through a small window, saw the servant girl sitting at a table with Wm. Glanville, who was also a lodger with Toomer. McNevin placed the muzzle of the revolver close to the wall in a line with where the two occupants ot the kitchen wore sitting on the opposite side, and discharged it. The ball, however, did not pass through the wall but rebounded, probably on account of the muzzle being close to the wall, and inflicted a wound in the holder’s own hand. The occupants of the house were alarmed by the report, and [,tho police were communicated with. McNevin ran out of the house, and could not be found last night, but shortly after 10 o’clock this morning ho surrendered himself to the custody of sergeant Wilson.
