himself immediately surrounded bv a
crowd of men, many of whom, owing to
his short residence here, ho did not recog
nize, but whose language and actions soon
convinced him were not particularly friend
ly disposed toward him.
They first endeavored to pursuado him
to drink, and upon his dcclinine- to In-
dulgo in tho festivo libations so persistent
ly protl'ered, and giving expression to a
desiro to withdraw from tlio choice assem
blage in which ho so suddcnlv found him.
selff a loud yell was raised for "Pinch-
back, Pincliback. Gov. Pinehbnck. ho!
Governor," etc., etc., which conjuration in
stantcr summoned tho gracious presence of
mm iiimous uignuary upon tuo scene.
"Governor," shouted ono of tho ruffians,
"here's ono of 'cm. what shall wo do with
him V" and nt onco a half dozen of
brawny thugs struck out right and loft nt
mo entrapped person ol .Major Chester.
'Givo it to him good," was tho war cry,
and well tnoy gave it totiim ; a half dozen
of knifo cuts nnd stabs on tlio head and
neck, with many severo bruises about tho
body, bear evidenco to tho good will and
physical strengtli of tho operators. Major
Chester retreated backward toward tho
house, and after a sovero struggle with his
would-bo assassins, finally reached the
back piazza, and with tho assistance of
Mrs. Stackhotisu and her daughters was
pushed into tho back parlor. Just as ho
reached tho entrance to tlio parlor, ho was
struck with a pistol bullet on tho forehead,
nrcu ai mm uv ono oi tno in on.
Mrs. Stitckhouso and her daughters. In
their cll'orts to savo Mr. Chester, wero'
most brutally handled by the ruffians.
Miss Stackhouse, In attempting to drag off
ono or tho brutes who was in tho act of
striking Mr. Chester, was laid hold of by
Pinchbck, who slapped lior violently on
tlio face and pushed her down on tlio gal
lory steps, shouting : "Stop her jaw j shut
her upl AVhat tho dovil had she to do
with this?"Jund othcrjoholeo gubernatorial
oxpletivos. Another of tho ruffians
struck Mrs.Stuckhouso on tho head with
tho butt of n pistol.
A young lady visitor at tho houso was
similarly dealt with.
Shortly aftor tho report of tho pistol
shot, and when Mnior Chester was scon to
fall, tho ruffians, with Pinch at their head,
hastily loft tho yard, and jumping into
carriages and cabs, got quickly out of
sight.
Tho oxcltoment In tho neighborhood, up
to a Into hour last night, was intense, aud
thoro was but ono expression of opinion
upon tho cowardly attempt to murder an
unoffending gentleman.
In tho hurry of thu retreat, tho pistol to
shoot Mr. Chester was dropped in tho gut
tor by the owner.
During tlio evening, it was picked up
by a boy, who took it to Col. .lames Low
is. On examination, it was found to bo a
flvo-chamber rovolver, of Smith & "Wes
son manufacture. Ono chamber had been
discharged.
Tho pistol boro tho oppoarnnco of being
entirely now no doubt very recently pur
chased, and if our polico aro tho efficient
organization which their supporters and
admirers claim them to bo, they suroly
will bo able to trace tho ownership of tho
handsome littlo weapon. Col. Lewis has
it on exhibition.
