Robt. McCaughrin, the son of R. L.
McCaughrin, aged l years and 5
months, died on Friday morning last,
of malarial fever, and on Sunday the
family were again called upon to
mourn the death of the youngest mem
ber, Laura,an infant,eight months old.
This afflictive dispensation of Provi
dence is a severe trial, and can only
be borne by a supreme trust in the
wisdom of God, and an assurance
that the Savior's love for children is
great and infinite ; his injunction
to -uXTer them to come to Him must
h- taken without murmur. Of such is
the Kingdom of Heaven. Only those
who have been called npon to taste of
this bitter cup can appreciate the depth
of this family's woe, but we bid them
not to doubt the loving wisdom of God,
who doeth all things well. Our sin
cerest sympathy is extended to them.

Accidentally Shot. 1
On last Wednesday night, the 24th
ult., Mr. Win. H. Blease called on im
Messrs. James Singleton and A. H. b:
Blease to go with him to Helena to ar- la
rest one Wash Carwile, colored, for d(
breach of the peace. Mr. Blease had
a warrant for his arrest. While watch- 31
ing Carwile's house Mr. Singleton G
heard a noise, and thinking that per- w
haps it was the accused, under the el
house, he stooped down to look for ci
him, when the pistol, which he held b<
cocked, was accidentally discharged, cl
the ball entering his (Singleton's) leg in
about two inches above the knee, and tr
ranging down in the calf of the leg, of
making only a flesh wound, but a very tI
painful one. Mr. Blease called on our tc
good friend Zobel for his wagon and tl
horse to carry the wounded man home. a
le responded promptly, as he always n,
does when called upon for favors. st
Drs. MeIntosh and Gilder probed d
for the ball, but did not succeed in ex- 'T
tracting it. They say that there is no p
danger of its making a stiff leg. Mr. Q
Singleton is improving fast, we are I;
plea.sed to say. Mr. Blease begs us to 31
thank Mr. Zobel for himself and his vi
wounded friend for his kindness.
