THE SHOOING OF JOHN CON KUAN.
A Cold Blooded Deed.
The following account of the shooting of John
Conegan by Louis Ford, near Morris' Station
the Delaware R. R., on Saturday night, 4th
Inst., written to Evry Evening , which was
mentioned by our Warwick Correspondent last
week, is, we believe, substantially correct.
Townsend, Del., April 13th, 1874.—Yonr
respondent has just gathered the following par
ticulars of the tragedy which
Morris' Station, Kent county, Md., on Saturday
night, 4th inst. :
Louis Ford, who has been concerned in a lit
tle store at Morris' Station, trusted John Cone
gan for some goods. After waiting some time
for the pay, Ford sued Conegan for the amount
of his claim. This rested quiet until Saturday,
4tb inst., when the parties (Ford and Conegan)
met at Sassafras, nnd Ford agreed if Conegan
would pay him $10 the next Saturday, 11th
inst., be would pay the cost and drop the mat
ter. This, Conegan agreed to. Ford met Cone
gan at Morris' station the same evening; they
shook hands and Conegan asked Ford to go in
and take a drink, which Ford agreed to. After
tuking the drink, Ford, in company with George
Walker and John Maguire started home. Cone
gun, living in the same direction, soon followed
on behind them. After going about a mile, one
of the party looked behind nnd saw Conegan
coming, und remarked to Ford, Hallo ! here

According to the proclamation of E. F. James,
M. W. G. M., Good Samaritan Lodge No 9, of
this town has resolved to celebrate the 55th An

that falls upon the 8abbatb) by attending the

Brilliant Nuptial Ceremony.
Never, perhaps, in the history of the ancient
8t. Francis Xavier Church was a more beautiful
scene witnessed within its sacred walls than that
presented to the eyes of the assembled friends of
the bridal couple, on Tuesday last, the occasion
of the celebration of the Nuptials of Mr. Hugh
McAleer Jr., of New York City and Miss Moliie
A. Craddock of Cecil Connty. At an early hour
the selected friends of the happy couple assem
bled in the church, and soon after, some very
choice selections of music were rendered by the
Amphion Band, of this place, Mr. R. L. Price
presiding at the organ. The Altar and Chancel
of the church were beautifully decorated with
natnral flowers of rarest variety, nnd tho illumi
nating tapers that blazed about the altar gave at
once a most pleasing and solemn appearance.
At 11:30 the bridal company were announced,
and shortly after, very gracefully preceded to
the chancel by Dr. T. H. Gilpin and Mr. J. S.
Crouch,
escorts, entered the church in the fol
lowing order :—Miss A. Price, of Cecil, as first
bridesmaid, escorted by Mr. Osborne, of Balti
more ; Miss Virginia Bond as second bridesmaid,
attended by Mr. McAlcer, brother of the groom ;
and at lust, but by no niean9 least, following the
Attendants, very leisurely moved the beautiful
bride elect, dressed in an elegant white satin
trimmed in a most tasteful and becoming man
ner, leaning upon the
of the happy and for
tunate groom. Wkile the party moved to their
places and arranged in front of the Priest, the
Band beautifully rendered the music of "March
Cclesto." After a very tender exhortation, or ad
dress to the couple, the Rev. Father McAlcer,
(uncle of the groom,) of Frederick, Md., assisted
by Rev. Father Villigcr, of St. Francis Xavier,
according to the beautiful ritual of the Catholic
Church, pronounced them
the bridal party left the church, the Band play
ing the "Bridal Waltz." A magnificent recep
tion was given a few friends at tho house of the
bride's mother, where the utmost pleasure reign
ed for the hour, and ns the happy couple left for
their new home, the Baud played "Fare Thee
well ray own Mary Ann," much to the amuse
and wife, and
ment of those present.
The happy couple took the 3:40 train for Nt
York, accompanied by some of their relatives
and friends.
While we join in the generally expressed
gret nt the loss the society of this vicinity bas
sustained in tho removal of Miss Craddock, yet
we feel glad to know she will be an acquisition
to any to which the change may introduce her.

Last Friday afternoon week he had harnessed a
horse to a buggy to train him to go. Tho horse
did go. He went fast, and without his trainer.
He came up Main street at what might be styled
a breakneck pace. Turning the corner at Broad
street, he ran down that street, and going upon
the side-walk, regardless of shade trees and
hitching-post8, he left the buggy at Messrs. Cox
k Bio's carriage shops, somewhat the worse for
breaks. As the carriage had been borrowed
from Messrs. Cox k Bio's., it is supposed that this

More Runaways*
A horse, attached to a carriage belonging to
Mr. Daniel Davis, while standing in front of Mr.
Jos. Gary's, on Lake Street, became frightened
at a peach basket in the hands of n passing gen
tleman, on Thursday morning and rau away
down Luke street, creating considerable excite
ment. The shafts were broken off and the
riage damaged considerably in other places by
coming in contact with the fence. Miss Fannie
Vasey and niece made a narrow escape from in
jury by the runaway team, the wheels of the car
riage just grazing their dresses.
A horse which Mr. D. Jones was harnessing,
made a big stir the game morning by breaking
loose from Mr. Jones and running up Main St
on the side walk. The clatter of his hoofs on
the brick pavement brought peoplo to their doors
and windows. Fortunately no harm was done
and "nobody was hurt."
