SEVERAL GORDON DOES HOT WANT TO 8UC-

Washington. Aoeust 24. Tne talk that

$3 0 000 for their work. He has made from

Some ladies in England propose starling

spectable natives are not allowed to enter
the city. When the difficulties are settled
they will return to a quaater of the-town
quite uninjured, and tbe necessity of re
building the European quarter, with the in
creased demand for all sorts of labor, will
considerably raise wages, and probably place
the natives in more flourishing circumstances

Attempted Oalraco la Dorsey Co., Ark.
Pine Bluff (Ark.) Press-Eagle.
From a letter just received from A. H.
Parker, E-q , a justice of the peace in New
Edinburg, Dorsey county, we learn the par
ticulars of an attempted outrage upon the
person of s little daughter of a farmer named
Parrot I, of Lee township, that county. The
girlls but nine years seven months old, and
was assaulted by a colored boy nineteen
years of age, who had been in Parrot t's em
ploy for several months. Tbis occurred
about three weeks ago, and the little girl,
through fear, said nothing of the affair nntil
a few days ago, when she related it to a
neighbor's daughter, a playmate, who told
it to her parents. The circumstances of tbe
attempted crime soon became known
to several gentlemen in the vicinity, who
seized the negro and administered to him a
severe castigation with switches. The negro,
whose name is Wils Msrtin, protested his
innocence throughout. The above facts com
ing to the knowledge of Justice Parker, the
girl and her parenis were summoned to ap
pear before bim, and their testimony being
sufficient to justify a belief in the negro's
guilt, a warrant waa issued for hissrrest. In
tbe meantime the negro, fearing further
trouble, suddenly disappeared from that vi
cinity, and all the efforts pi the constable and
nis assistants.' up 'to dste. to ascertain bis
Whereabouts have been in vain.
Aa Editor's Moao Bitten Ob.
Tbe community were shocked this morn
ing to hear of the outrageous assault made
on Mr. John W. Lav ins, editor and pro
prietor of tbe Hornet, at or near the corner
o: Grove and Walnut streets, about 11 o'clock.
From the most reliable information that can
be gathered it is ststed that Mr. Lav ins and
Jack McKenna had some words at tbe
saloon of Hibon, on Washington street.
From there Mr. Levins started for home in
company with Marshal Groom. When near
the Trowbridge Heuse they were met by
McKenna, Wm. Busbelraan and several
others. Tbe attack waa made on Mr. Lavioa
at this point, and the result is that Mr.
Lavins is disfigured for life, his nose being
entirely gone, having been bitten off by one
of tbe brutes. Mr. Lavins fired one shot
without effect. It is not known what Mar
shal Groom did in the premises, but he
stated to Dr. Rabbi os that he waa pres
ent. Mr. Lavins, McKenna and Bosbel
man were arrested. City-Clerk Trow
bridge went on tbe bond of the two
last named. The attempted assassina
tion was evidently premeditated. Mr.
Lavins was moved from the city prison to
his residence at 9 o'clock this morning In a
dangerous condition from bis mutilation and
bruUes. It remains to be seen what measures
of justice may be taken in th matter, but
one tbjnj is certain, that District-Attorney
Fitzgerald will spare no efforts. Affidavits
have been made against John Groom, J. If.
McKenna, W. H. Burnett, Simon De Young
and William Bashelman for attempt to kill
and murder and for conspiracy. No man's
life can be regarded as safe in this city,
which is yet provided with aa organised po
lice force, if such krutai outrages and evident
attempt to murder can be perpetrated under
the very eyes of the chief of police. Jobn
Groom, W. H. Burnett, Simon De Young
and William Boshelman were arrested tbis
morning and taken before Justice Mann for
examination. District-Attorney Fitzgerald
appeared and notified the justice that he in
tended to condoct tbe prosecution, and re
quested the release of John Groom on hi
recognizance, snd that the others be held
nntil such time as Mr. Lavins might be able
to appear in court.
The Story of Alice Ashe.
Little Buck Gazette.
Our readers no doubt remember that a
few months since the GoseUs published par
ticulars of tbe desertion ot an imam conq
ir Batesville. The little piece of hu
manity, it was stated at the time, wis left
beside tbe road to starve, and that it re
in stood there nearly a week before being
found. When it was discovered the officers
very quickly traced it home to its mother, a
young lady, a stranger at Batesville, who ac
knowledged her crime, but staled she had
visited it and nursed it every day. At the
trial, whicb came off soon sfter her arrest,
and at which she gave her name as Alice
Jones, she wss convicted ot an attempt to
murder the child, and sen'enccd to five
years' imprisonment. All the efforts of judge
and jury to ob'ain tbe name of the author
of her ruin and her former home proved
unavailing, and she was soon after
brought to tbis city and placed ia the peni
tentiary. Yesterday Governor Churchill
pardoned her. The pardon was given be
cause ol a petition signed by the judge be
fore whom she wss tried, the attorney who
prosecuted, the jurors, and hundreds of citi
zen. The strangest r art of the story came
to light yesterday. Alice Jones is no other
than beam if ul Alice Asche, of Lonoke
county, whose mysterious disappearance
caused no little comment at the. time. The
mother believed when she left aueJaad gone
to visit relatives in Georgia, the girl having
caused snch a report to he circulated. A few
weeks caused tbe fact to be known that eb
had not gone there. Weeks rolled by and
no tidings of the poor girl could be heard.
At last tbe broken-hearted mother was in
duced to visit Batesville, where Alice Jones
was on trial. She arrived .there Ihe dav the
sheriff started for Little Rock wi'h her as a
prisoner. Tbe meeting between mother
aud daughter was heartrending beyond
description. Both women fainted, and
the kind-hearted omcer found himself very
mnch ont of place. Th-re was no scolding;
no recriminations, lbe mother took her
daughter to her heart and aaid she would go
witb tier. Alss! tbe strain wss too much for
the poor old woman, and she IM ill. It was
a month or so before she saw her daughter
behind the prison bars. From ths dsy of
her recovery to yesterday she hsd worked
incesssntly, snd her face wore a look of
pnrity and motherly holiness, as she walked
about tbe slatehouse, that was absolutely
sublime. ''Pardoned, blessed word." she
ssid. It is said that Miss Asche wss ruined
under promise of marriage by a handsome
young farmer, of Lonoke, by the name of
Houndsley. He persuaded her to go to
EalesVirte, ih b.hy was born, relliDg
her be would follow. Instead of doing so,
and showing an inclination to right the
wrongs he had caused, he fltd the State.
God will surely wreak His vengeance' on
such a villian a Houndsley.
