Daring Attempt at Robbery.

of ,Deir otherwise worthldss
jh ia8L.iuursny nigut a ues
perate attempt was made to
enter and rob the house ol
William iivin wto lives about
a mile and a halt in a north
Westerly direction from McAr
tbur. Mr. Irvin has a large
ahd fierce watch-dog. Early in
the evening about 8 o'clock,
the dog .was noticed to bark
vociferously and running
around the yard, evidently in
an excited slate; Mr. Irvin
went to the door, 'supposing
ibat probably some ot the
neighbors had come to see him,
called the dog, but could bear
and see no one; be then went
into the houee, he and the fam
ily engaging in reading and
conversation until they retired,
the dog in the meantime keep
ing up considerable iuss but no
lurther attention was paid toit.
About ball pist ten, the lam
ily retired. Shortly alter blow
ing oui the lights a loud noise
was heard at one of the dour;
ifer listening awhile, Mr. I
went to tbe door to see what
was the matter, and found H
was some one at the door, push
ing uud ftorking as though he
attempted to spring it he ask
ed "Who's there,'' but no an
swer. Mr. I. (hen got a navy
revolver and bhot through ihe
loWer part of thednor, 111 about
the plact, as he supposed,
would be a center shot on the
carcass ol the besieger, llii
done, he immediately opened
the door, went nut and saw a
man retreating belore hin;
looking an und he saw one at
the north end o the houne; he
tired, when the latter also bea
a retreat, and Mr. I. followed
him up until he got as fur aa
the line net ween him and Trail
Snyder, when he return d to
tbe house. Mr. I. was abund
atitly supplied with gun-
and pistols, i id told his lur
sous that they would now li)
on their aims till daylight.
About three o'clock another
noise was heard, and the dg
fiercely balking Mr. I. and Ina
sons itnnu-diately got up, and
looKitig through ihe kev holes,
obseived a nun at earh f ih
three doors ol the house; they
a "ii observed a man passing a
Window. Mr. I took his posi
tion at one ol the door, and
the boys posted themselves at
h other doors. Mr 1. then di
rected the boys to wait till he
tired and then all fire at once
through Ihe doors. On lucking
gxin through the key ho leu
the ci'U d see nothing, the dt g
had also ceased burking, and
lor tiie lime being, all was qui
et. Tiiey no concl id 1 to
w,tii tor another demonstration
but lrura that time until day
light could see and hear noth
ing. At dat light ihey went
out to rei'uiiuoiter, ami saw
ne.ir the door-steps, the prints
ot Homelhing that looked ' like
a man's hand as also the print
ot something that looked like
a rutin's lace or head bd mado
it, evidently beinu m ide bv ihe
one in front of Ihe door. when
Mr. I. first fired, aho was prob"
ably woundrd; they alsolognd
an abundance ot tracks all
around the houee, and ihe gar
den whs all Irnmped over and
the vegetables mashed down.
The SHme individuals (prob
ably) attempted to enter the
residence of Ezekiel RoLinel,
In the neigboihood of Irvnt',
through the window, but the
childrn awakening, gave such
a irlghtlul scram as to cause
th m to leave.
Mr. Irvin sold bis property
the Monday previous, and in
tends moving to Missouri, and
it appears that ibis circum
stance caused tbe incentive to
rob him. Burglaries have been
reported in Circleville, Urbana
aud Tort mouth, and other
places in the Si ate, and ibis at
tempt may have been by a por
lion ol ihe same gang wbo go
ptowling through the country.
N. B. Mr. Irvin desires to
ininrtn burglars that he has no
money in his bouse, and all
hey can expect ta get if tbey
coma there, is a load ot lead,
