A Cut From Ear To Ear.

BALTIMORE, Aug. 27.—Last night Richard Williams was standing in the road at Govanstown, a few miles north of this city, talking to the wife of Israel Brown, who seeing them, crept up behind Williams and deliberately cut his throat with a pocket-knife. The wound extended from ear to ear, but Williams walked three miles to the nearest police station where fully a pint of blood was found in his boots. The wound was sewed up but the man is likely to die and his assailant is in jail. Jealousy was the cause of the attempted murder.
