Death of Mb. Joan Wbiohtsok. We learn
that Mr. Wrightson went to Arizona about a
year ago, in the employ of the Santa Rita
Southern Mail Company, and at the time of his
death (Sanday evening, August 14th) was in
charge of the company 'srancho at Tamacaoori.
On the afternoon of hie assassination, the
herder reported several of the anitnnls missing,
and Mr. W. deeming it his duty to reoovor
them, rode in oompany with tbe hordor to seok
them, He was fully armed, but foil into an
ambueoadeand was lanced in several places be
fore he could have had time to draw his pistol.
Tho object of tbe assassins was plunder, and as
they rifled his pookets there ia reason to be
lieve that they obtained considerable property.
Mr. Wrightson had gained tbe respeot of those
who knew him by his faithfulness in the dis
charge of his duties, his generous hospitality
to tbe way-farer that passed his door, and his
unflinching eourage in the defense of his
friends. We sympathise, with his family and
friends in their sudden and severe bereave
ment. Who Did It? A dojr with a tin can tied

STAMPEDE AT THE COUNTY
Escape of Three Prisoners.
About half-past nine o'clock last evening,
as Jailor Shockley and his assistants were in
the hospital apartment, attending to a man
named Myers, who was laboring under a fit
of tremens, he was startled by the barking of
the jail dogs in the yard. Ho immediately
rushed out and received the intelligence that
"tho whole chain-gang wore about to escape."
He ran to the door leading from the gang
cell into the main yard of the jail, and found
that tho bolt of the look had been pried
back, and that three priBOi)ers,named Daniel
Appletou, A. B. Curr and Charles Wise, had
c flee tod their escape by scaling the wall.
They were immediately pursued and re
captured within a short distance of the jail,
Mr. Shockley informed us that a few mo
ments later the whole gang would have es
caped. No blame can be attached to Mr.
Shockloy or his assistants. The prisoners
were replaced in their old quarters and

All About a Hat. A German named
Georgo fprecht, who resides on Everett-street,
near Liun, went down town last Saturday
night, and purchased a new hat. Arming at
home, his "frow" was very much displeased
with bis soleoticn, and beoame very muob en
raged. The couple quarreled loud and long,
until the arrival of a policeman, who escorted
Sprecht to the station-house. Previous to
looking him up, he was searched, when a double-barreled
pistol was found on his person.
Two charges, one of carrying conoealed wea
pons, and one of disorderly conduot, were made
against him. Yesterday Judge Lowe fined
him ten dollars and oosts for the former, and
three dollars and oosts for the latter offense.

that he be allowed tbe privilege of the yard.
Shortly afterward, while Jailor Shockley wag

of the chain-gang room, from thence to the
female department; from there he jumped on

3fJohn Wallmore, who was arrested in
this city some time since by Lieutenant
Small as a pickpocket, and who subsequently
posted hand-bills about the streets charging
that officer with levying "black mail," &c,

City Council A special session of the
Council convened yesterday afternoon at fuuro'ulock.
Tho lint business of importance cums up in the
shape of a report of a committee, previously ap
pointed forhe purpose of considering the subject,
recommending a board fence around the jail, the
coat of which was estimated at flSO. Tho chairman
of tho committee etated, briefly, that without a fence
teols woro slipped Into the jail through the bars to
aid prisoners to make their eacape; that saws and
other implements had been so given to the Inmates;
and that he (the chairman) hoped no one would ob
ject to the proposed Improvement. But a Mr. Moore,
from the "Fifth Ward," who appeared to delight in
a reputation fur volubility, opposed the report, de
claring Corlngton bankrupt; that her paper had gone
to protest; and, in a regular apread-eagle style, (which
some members hinted that he Indulged In because
some reporters were present) advocated economy in
the city expenditures. Uenppeared to indulge a par
ticular spite at the author of the report, and proposed
that, if the fonce was built, the figures, SIM, be
posted on it conspicuously, and uudur It the word
"protest." The report was rejected.
The Belief Committees were then called, and only
the one for the Third Ward responded, haying ap
propriatca 318 30.
By unanimous consent an ordinance was Intro
duced by Ur. MenilcH, of the Second Ward, provid
ing that the fallowing propositions be submitted to
