"GALLEY--ASSASSINATION of L. GALLEY -- L. GALLEY, of the firm of Le Cacheux, Galley & Co., liquor merchants at 28 Commercial street, between Front and Davis streets, San Francisco, was stabbed says the ‘Bulletin’ at 11 ½ a.m. Wednesday, and mortally wounded, by a French woman named Melantine GIRAULT. It appears that the woman, who is unmarried but enciente, went into the store this morning and she and GALLEY went into the private office to have a talk. They were alone for some time, when the persons about the establishment heard a cry in the office, and rushing in, found Mr. GALLEY lying upon the floor, having been stabbed in the left side with a bowie knife, by the woman. The knife passed through a part of the left lung and stomach, and is said to fatal beyond a doubt. The woman stood there with vengeance in her eye. Information was carried to the police and soon after the woman was arrested by Chief CURTIS, conducted to the station-house, and subsequently taken to the county jail, where she now lies. After her arrest, she still continues furious, and said that if GALLEY would not died, she would stab him again…She is rather a fine looking woman and tolerably young. MORE of the CASE of ASSASSINATION -- The various reports circulated on the streets Wednesday evening and this morning of the death of Mons. L. GALLEY, who was stabbed Wednesday by Melantine GIRAULT, says the S.F. ‘Bulletin’ of Thursday, are incorrect. It is hardly possible that he will recover, but he is still living and doing much better than could be expected. He is under the care of Dr. D’OLIVIERA, assisted by Drs. PIGNE-DUPUYTREN and CELLE; from the former of whom we learn that the knife passed into Mons. GALLEY’s left side, between the 8th and 9th ribs; and being thrust in an oblique direction, penetrated the stomach, lung and diaphragm. The wound was immediately pronounced mortal, and it was supposed that the sufferer would live but a short time. It is now thought he may possibly recover, but it can hardly be expected. The woman, Melantine GIRAULT, as she writes her name, still remains in the County Jail, and appears to be in a calm condition of mind. She is 23 years of age, and comes from Paris, though she appears to be a native of Burgundy. It is said that she came to this county a few years ago in a ship doing business for the firm of LeCacheux, Galley & Co., and brought a letter of introduction and recommendation to Mons. GALLEY. When she arrived, it appears that Mons. GALLEY took her to..." [Transcriber's Note: rest cut off]. Source: Weekly Stockton Democrat, 16 May 1858. Transcribed by Dee.

"GERARDIN--Sunday night, about 9 o'clock, a French woman, named Marie GERARDIN, committed suicide in her rooms in a small alley leading off Broadway, near Dupont, by taking laudanum. About 6 years ago, the deceased was employed in the capacity of a waiter-girl in what was then known as the "Thunderbolt" saloon on Kearny street, near Pacific. A farmer from Los Angeles saw her in this saloon and offered to marry and give her a good home in the lower country. She favored his proposition, and in the course of a few weeks, managed to get from him the sum of $1,900, which was all the money he had. When his money was gone, she gave him the cold shoulder, and refused to marry him. One night the farmer visited her in the saloon, sat down beside her and told her he had come for a final answer on the question of marriage. She flatly refused him, when he drew a Colt's 5-shooter and fired at her, the ball entered her head in front of and a little above the right ear. The man then turned the weapon to his own head, and before any one could prevent him, fired it, the ball entering at the back of the right ear, penetrating the brain, and causing death in a few minutes. The woman did not die, but when she recovered, her hearing was impaired. Ever since that occurrence she was known as "Deaf Mary." On several occasions she has attempted to take her life, but was unsuccessful until Sunday night." Source: Stockton Daily Independent, 4 May 1871. Transcribed by Dee.
