SUICIDE AT THE LUNATIC ASYLUM - We learn from the Dundee Record, that Mr. John RICE, a resident of that town, committed suicide at the Utica Insane Asylum, a few days since, by cutting his throat with a piece of a dull case knife. Surgical assistance was immediately rendered, his throat again sewed up, and every effort made for him preservation; but shortly after, he suddenly forced his fingers into the wound and tore it open, telling his attendants to let him die. The wound and the injuries inflicted in tearing it open, proved fatal in a little while.
