What befell Joshua Dougherty Last Even
One of the many champions of ladies, met
with what might have been & very serious
accident last evening. The parties to the
affair were Joshua Dougherty, aScotchmau,
aud William Bagley, a character known to
From the facts that can be ascertained of
the affair it appears that about 10.15 o'clock
Bayley met Dougherty In front of the latter's
boarding house, No. 411 West Second street,
and calling him aside insulted two
young lady a- quain tances of Dougherty's.
Mr. Dougberty very properly resented the
insult, upon which Bagley drew a knife and
attempted to cut the ladies'champion. He
did not succeed in doing so, as Dougherty
was too much for him. They then sepa
rated, but about an hour afterward, as
Dougherty was about to enter his boarding
house, he was met by Bagley and before he
was aware of his adversary's intention he
wa# stabbed in the right jaw bone The
knife blade was broken off and remaiued in
the jaw. Dougherty informed Officer An
drew Moore of the occurrence, who took the
iujured man iu charge aud escorted him to
Dr. Carrow, Sixth and French streets, who
removed the broken blade and dressed the
wound. The iujured man is doing all

An item appeared In the Gazette last

several hours. This morning Clerk of the
Market Ainscow called at this office and

HARRISBURG LAID OUT
QUICK ST fcPS WIN
OTHER GOOD GAME.
PLENTY OF SOLID BATTING.
The Harrisburg Rickers Defeated by a
Score of 15 to 6—Yesterday's H
Nothing could give more satisfaction to
the 600 spectators yesterday than to see the
line style in which the Quickstep laid the
Harrisburg club out. The home Warn had
on their batting clothes again aud they ham
mered both pitchers most unmercifully. At
the outset Leary was putln the pitcher's box.
On the second ball pitched Klenzel lifted it
for three bags. Benners not to be outdone
drove another for the same number of bags,
Leary looked mad and this Increased when
Hoover and Albert got iu singles and Fox
for three bases. Manager Meyers now
interfered and Burns was piaced in the box
with the distinct understanding t.hut he was
to remain there. The side retired in short
The Harrisburg then took their
turn aud were put out before
ten balls had been pitched and in a row. In
the second inning neither side scored. The
Harrltbuig got their first run on the third
Inning through the aid of an error of
Klenzel and hit of Shetzline. The home
club were unable to hit Burns for the second
and third inning, but lit on to him in the
fourth and kept it up until the sixth inning,
scoring niue runs off him. Here Meyere in
terfered again and wanted Burns to leave
the box; this he absolutely refused todoand
in consequence he was expelled on the
ground and the Harrisburg continued the
game with eight men; as luck would have It,
but one ball was knocked out into right
field. Leary was urought in again and the
home club did not score on him until the
ninth innings when two runs and three hits
wero made. Everyone did good hitting, Little
Albert leading with five hits aud eight bases.
Klenzel and Benners each bad a brace of
triples. Fox, Albert and Snyder also got lu
triples. The Harrisburg were unable to se
cure but six hits and ten bases off tue boy
pitcher of the Quickstep; of these Shetz
Ilne got two, Casey a three-bagger and
Leary and McCloskey doubles. The visitors
outflelded the home team, and the playing
of Cline at second base was magnificent aud
brilliant. Reccius at left at left caught two
good flies and made a splendid throw to sec
ond. Hoover at second made some good
stops and seems at home in his position.
Fox played a good third, and as it is an old
story about Snyder, it is hardly necessary to
say he played first good, for everybody
knows it. G us Albert covered short splen
didly. The battery as usual worked ad
mirably, neither a wild pitch or a passed
bull being credited against either of them.
That they are a valuable acquisition to the
club every one Is convinced. They field and
bat first-class and as yet the heaviest batters
in the Inter-State have been unable to hit
them. The score follows:

A UKADLV DUEL.
Fierce Fight, of Two Luven -Both Mur
Van da Li a, August 28.—The duel be
tween Jacob Roseubrook and Lewis
Phillips, at Meashogue* Mill, 40 miles from
Vandalia, was fought. last night without
challenge aud almost without provocation.
The passion of the duelists had been In
flamed to the highest pitch by a long stand
ing rivalry for the hand of a young girl who
is believed to be a cousin of Rosenbrook.
Phillips, in additioi to this, resented what
he regarded as an insult from his rival, aud
for several days each of the two
threatened to kill the other on sight.
The young girl, to whom both
strongly attached, fruitlessly tried every
means to restore peace between the suitors.
Last night they were accompanied by friends
and met near Meashogues Mill, in Bowling
Green Township. Four shots were fired
in such rapid succession that it was impos
sible to tell who fired first. Roseubrok fell,
mortally wouuded, but his self-cocking
volver, a 32 calibre weapon, was afterward
used with fatal effect upon his rival. As he
lay bleeding to death Irom a mortal wound
he fired a fifth shot and Phillips fell.
THE SECOND'» STORY.
Roeenbrork's recoud in the dreadful
tragedy was Mark Swunk, while Phillips
brought to the field John W
ren. The sec
services to perform until the
duel was over, and the fatal event* on the
field happened with bewildering rapidity.
Both agreed that there was no time for pre
liminaries before the first shots were fired.
The two men drew their weapons and began
firing at a distance of about 10 paces, and
the seconds were obliged to look to
their own safety. Phillips' second shot
struck Rosenbrook in the mouth and
traveled upward, penetrating the brain. As
he fell his weapon exploded, the bullet
striking his antagonist in the left side, just
below the filth rib, ranging upward, and he
fell within five feet oi Mr. Rosenbrook.
Both duelists were young men, Phillips
being about 22 years oi age, and a school
teacher. Neither of the seconds have yet

The inuocent cause of the tragedy if crazed
with grief over the tragic affair,
parties to the affray are highly respected in
the community, aud while their rivalry was
much commented upon, no one anticipated
bq bloody an ending to it. The trouble was
that the young lady seemed to be unable to
decide as to which she prefeired, receiving
the attentions of both young men with im
partiality. The Coroner has been summoned
from St. Louis- to bold an inquest over the
remains of Rosenbrook. It is thought that
Phillips cannot survive the night, as he has
