Resistance to An Oficer.
On Monday, 1st of September, Con
stable C. T. Martin proceeded with
two warrants. issued some time since
by Trial Justice Gossett, to the Cross
Plains settlement to arrest one Thos.
Bradley, who, together with his father
and several brothers, live on a farm be
longing to Mr. Wm. Ponder. MartIn
had heard rumors to the effeet that he
would probably meet with some resist
ance, as the family were known to be
very quarrelsome, and had made some
threats as to what they intended doing
if he, Martin, attempted to arrest. Tom.
So he, Martin, first pressed in two men,
Messis. Pinkney Freeman and Wn. R.
Porter, to go with him, but he did not
think it necessary to arm then,think
Ing that their presence would prevent
them, the Bradley's, from naking any
resistance. Martin captured his m&n
at a spring near the house, and as he
was proceeding to fasten him with
hand-ctiffs, the father and brothers
came running up aid demanded him
to. release Ton, and called to the wo
men at the house to bring them the
shot-gun, and also began drawing
knives and using very profane Ian
guage. Mr. Martin, however, held
then at bay with a pistol presented,
bit when he attempted agin to secutre
the prisoner', the old man rushed on
hin with his knife and lie shot him in
the side. Marthia was then knocked
down and three or four of then lay
hold of hhn, and would have shot him,
but just at the time Mr. Potter knock
ed down the nan who had the pistol,
with a stick. Martin then got away
from the old man and cut one of the
others severely with his knife. As
some of then from the house were
coming with a shot-gun Martin and his
assistant then thotught best to retreat,
as they were unarmed, which they did
in good order, repairingto Freeman 's
house, which was near by, and after
procuring a couple of shot-guns went
back after Toni again, but he had nade
good his escape. Mr. Martin has since
learned that one or both -of the wound
ed parties are likely to (lie from the ef
fccts of the wounds, and request us to
say that he is to be found at all times,
while not out on ofilcial duty, at Eas

an injustice, as he can prove the above
