Almost a Homicide.
Last Saturday night, a little after
dark, a young man named William
Morrison shot Frank Rogers, the ball
entering his left breast, striking the
breast-bone and ranging upward.
Dr's Blankinehip and Morton dressed
the wound, and probed for the ball
but could not find it. Frank was up
next day as usual, and said he found
the ball in his breeches pocket ; ho
seems to be doing very well. Mor
rison gave himself up to Sheriff Ed
raondson shortly after the shooting,
and on Monday was bound over to
Court by Esquire Garner, Morrison
giving bail. We have not learned the
cause of the shooting, aside from the
fact that Frank came up to Morrison
on Pigeon alley, and, as we learn,
was fired upon by Morrison before
cominer close together. It is said
that there had been no previous difll
cultv between the parties, and that
Frank was not the person Morrison
aimed to shoot.

Mr. Wood ide nnd a young son of

Recently a young professional man
of this county, living on a stream Paid
to be infested with rnuskrats, otter,
and lch like, concluded to enrich
himself by goiug into the fur and
Bkin business. Ho accordingly set
his traps, and anticipated a rich haul
of gamo. One morning, on going tho
rounds, he discovered a most strange
animal caught in ono of his traps. A
neighbor's Jennet had strayed that
way, and stepping into a trap had
tripped ou the bank and fell into the
creek. Sho was dead, lying on her
back, legs erect, tmd the trap dang
ling from her forefoot.
And now when anybody wants to
bo shocked by an earthquake, just
say "Otter" to that young man. A.
Editors Republican :
The time is now at hand when we
may be compared to a "bubble on the
ocean wave," drifting far out on the
turbulent waters of the Pacific, or to
a yard frog, after swallowing thirteen
ounce balls, sittincr quietly by the
cellar door meditating on the proba
ble result of a leap into tho dark.
Our daily communication with tho
"outer world" is cut off, consequently
we have no knowlodgo of things that
may happen "in a day." Knoxville,
proud Knoxville, may be sleeping
3,000,000 miles beyond tho confines
of an imaginary purgatory, for aught
wo know. The onca beautiful waters
of the Tennessee .River, that have
hvif running down stream ever rince
Job- turkey first gobblod, maybe
running straight up and down and us
kno.v nothing about it. What a sad
predicament. Is it possible that we
are drifting out on tho ocean of time
with our "little barks" laden with
aitjs at only 8 cents a dozen, railroad
tax to pay, and wagon hire dearer
than house-rent t Save us! Givo
us back our Railroad. Shall we lay
down our oars, quietly fold our arms
and nit down, as if. though we were
cemented to the ground, and calmly
submit to all this brain delusion
about impossibilities in reference to a
new railroad bridge across Little
River? or 6hall wc seriously consider
things in their truo light and say we
must and wiU have a Railroad ? A
Railroad wo cannot do without. If
we cannot have it through the medium
of the present company and tho State
should make no appropriations, there
are men who will repair tho road by
subficription rather than do without
it. Lot us have it. Then we can, as
heretofore, ship the products of our
county to market, and "aigs" will bo
worth a shilling. Maryville, without
a Railroad, may truthfully bo ora
pared to our mills soon after tho high
waters ; they were not worth a dam.

no further disaster occurs the repairs will
be completed in four or five days. Mean

speculation is useless.
