who resided with a refiative, abod~e mile
from White Plains, in that county; was
shot by a young man named Rooney, and
severely if not mortally wounded in two'
places, one ball entering her Lreastith
out passing through, and the other her hip.
It appears that Rooncy prepared ~himself
with two pistols, went ~into a cotton field
where the young lady was alone and
immediately on declaring his intention
shot her down with one pistol and then
fired the other tfter she fiel. He then
went to the house of a ncighbor--told
what he iad done-gave up the pistols,
and said he desired to be hung. He also
plead guiity as charged before the coin
mitting magistrate.--fhe only reason
given by the prisoner for the horrid act,
was that ie desired to marry the girl, but
she would not have him, and he preferred
to kill her rather than she should become
the wife of another.
St range to say nothwiistmnlimg the
terrible nature of the wounds received,
ithe voung lady was still alive when last
heard from, and hopes were entertained

of her blowing up; andl that he (Gen.
Taylor) had be'tter dehav for a day or two
for a better imnd su rer boat..- To'this' the
