BLOODY FI OUT IK WEST VÎSOINIÀ— THRER MEN SHOT—A WOMAN IN THE CASE. A correspondent from Logan Court House gives the following particulars of a fearful rencontre which took place'at Logan County W. Va., near the Kentucky "border on the first instant. Peter D. Morgan, who was murdered by Bushkivk in 1870, was a married man. Besides being the æducer of Bushk'tk's wife he was also, therefore, unfaithful to Ms marriage vows. H's w' f e was quite young and pretty, and as a mountain beauty, was the rival of Mrs. Bushk'rk in the : r maiden days. Among the adu)' *ers of Mrs. Morgan was R. C. Wil ims, now Prosecuting Attorney of Logan county, \s th whom she nad an amour of a con siderable duration. W ,,; ams was one of the principal witnesses agair.st Urias Bushkirk for the murder (n Morgan. The fact of the intimacy of W-Viams with Mrs. Moegan having become a matter of notoriety, it soon reached the ears of her broth Guy Lawson,who became fearfully incensed gainst Williams, and he resolved for to call urn ti account for it. On Tuesday morning last Guy Lawson met Wi ,,; aina in the street, or rather road, near the Court House. A ren contre had been looked for between them and both were armed, as were also their friends on both sides, in anticipation of what here is des ignated "lively limes." Lawson confronted-Williams with his right hand resting in an ominous way upon his hip. After the exchange of some violent language Lawson struck at Williams, the latter return ing the blow, and a fight followed, when the combatants both drew their pistols and firing began. Tue friends of both parties by | this time arrived at the spot and an indiscriminate fulisaie took place. Prank Bushkirk, a broth er to Urias Bushkirk, came to the aid of Lawson and a brother of Williams came to his aid. In addition to these a number of others, rushed upon the scene, all of them ready as occasion requ'^ed to espouse the cause of either com batant <*, T,ie affray by this time had reached its highest pitch, and the yells of the combat ants end the rapid pistol shots, with the quickly changing positions of the parties, made a spectacle long to be remembered at Logan Court House. R. C. Williams shot and laid Guy Lawson horse du combat, while Frank Bushkirk shot.and severely wounded both the Williams. Blood flowed freely on all sides, and at one time in the melee three of the principals were laid out in the street in a most terrible condition, still firing and fight ing with the ferocity and madness of the most bloodthirsty savages. At this juncture and when the fight had reached its most bloody phase, Urias Bushkirk suddenly appeared, revolver in hand, aocom panied by his wife, and springing directly be tween the combatants, shouted, "Stop this! By G —d Fll kill the first man who firosashot!" This coming from a man known to be »desper ate and "a man of his word" on such occasions, had a magical effect, and the'belligcrent spirit of all part ies at one subsided. Lawson was shot in right breast near the heart, and is not likely to recover. C. R. Wil ahot under tne left eye, the ball pass ing down iuto bin mouth, knocking out in its course several of his teeth. R. B. Williams, hisr bother, was shot in hi« left leg, and a man named Dur goss was shot behind the left ear the ball did not enter the skull.

Harvest. vi of off by do of a Complaint has occasionally been made m the uncommercial newspapers that the Asso ciated Proas should put themselves and their customers to the expense of transmitting the "weather gossip" across the Atlsntic; hut in point of fact, aa harvest time approached, such irformation has gained in import from day to day, nntil it has been of far 1 consequence to all classes of Americans than the issue of theCarlist marches and l>attlrs, the narrât *on of which is a daily burden of the cable. For the price of bread has been to a considerable extent dependent upon the ap parently trifling question what kind of weath er prevailed in England. Last Friday morn ing, for example, we published the cable tele- from saying that "heavy rains have fallen throughout the country the past week," and tho next morning we had to report a general rise in the price of wheat at New York, un-' checked the following day, even though it was succeeded by the cable announcement that "the Weather throughout England to-day is fair." The warning had been given by a quo talion from the Mark Lane Express, published here on Thursday, saying that "an immense amount of wheat is yet unharvested, and an increase of rain would be serions." The tone of the Express vas, in fact, so decidedly pan icky that if it had been supported to its full extent by opinion here, a still greater rise would probably have taken place. For though in tho middle of tho British harvest, and the public had been assured by Mr. Thomas C. Jcott, writing in the London Times of July 27, that "the almost ricey quality of the grain will enable it—barring unexpected weather— to go straight from the growers' to the millers' hands," the granaries of Europe have rarely been swept so hare of stock. The supply of English wheat for the last week reported, ending August 3, was 467 quarters below tho lowost point of 1873. And yet the Express, in tho extract telegraphed, undertook to disap point previous advices and expectations by saying that "the new wheat shows nothing to indicate moro than average quality and growth," thus calling for a supply of old wheat not seemingly in sight, to un* with the new, in order to render it immediately argua ble for milling purposes. The Intimations of the Erpress coincide With the rei arts concerning the harvest In France, where wet weather has delayed both lathering and threshing, but set aside from .he amount and qus'ily of the American crop it has or course b en remembered here that previous European advices hare made it probable that nothing but serious disaster would take France the present year out of the list of non-imi ortino, if not of wheat ex porting, countries and that betwren the low estimate of six rr :,l 'on quarters, which some authorities estimate will supply the British demand for foreign wheat, and the eleven or twelve mi'lions needed *n recent years, there is also room for great enlargement of the reckoning, and diminution of the expected British crop, without making a market fur the large surplus which we shall have to ex port. That of California alone, it Is estimat ed by the Sacramento Union of the 3d instant not to fall much below lc.ooo.ooocen lie other estimates make the surplus lor export as great as 20,000,000 rentals. By the J«1y report of the Agriculture Depart ment it appears That the acreage sown in wheat has Increased 107 per cent, while its condition was better than the average of a series of years. Taking newspaper accounts, this favorable condition seems to have lasted np to harvest time. The quality of tho grain h also generally spoken ot as superior. ' A u Indianapolis correspondent of ilio Chicago Tnbune reports the yield in Indiana to do above the average for the whole State, Ids remarks as to quality in different sections lin ing thus compared with the overage—"bettor quality"; '-the wheat is veiy line"; "not cu large as iu i860, hut of better quality"; "quality 15 per cent, better"; "as a général rule the kernai is heavy, solid aud healthy. The same correspondent avers that' 'iu evei y seatkm of the State the farmer's graneraner les are full of eld wheat—iu not a few insi ,n cesthe hold-over including the crop of 1871 as we'l as that ol 1872 and 1873," The Urge eastward movement of breadstuff, during the present season gives the Utler slate, ment nn element of surprise, but if we remem ber rightly, we have seen reports of the came kind with respect to the supply of old wheat in Michigau. At any rate, it may be concluded that the accidonis lo the crop in Great Britain and France,in view of prosperous and jabnadaLt harvests elsewhere, are not of consequence enough to defeat >he pubic expedaiion of cheap bread during the season of 1874 5. Last year not only England, but France, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Belgium, Holland, and even some greater wheat-exporting counft les, bad to import. This year their wants will all be supplied at home,and at the best or worst England wi need to buy from ue anything like the quantity the has taken the expiring scrsod. aneft more is 11 tala, II not Keep People from Drinking. Wbiaky is the devil that makes the mischief wherever it ia tolerated, whether io America, Eogland, Ireland, or Scotland. 200,000,000.of peoi>la in Europe, outside of Great Britain and Russia, who drink nothing etranger than wine and beer,and among all that vast mass; outnumbering the population ofthe United Statea five limes, there is less drunkenness,and fewer arrests made oa chargea of "drank and disorderly," then in the single city of Chicago, which contains not one fire hundredth of their population. of- This ia an absolute fact, a naked truth, advo aD( ] prohibitionists to turn over in their minds, digest well, r-d draw raliocal co.clu »ions therefrom. ^ crusade against whisky as a beverage would b, a Intimate and beneficent war, which if crowned with success by the extirpation Jof the tccureo d fluid from the entire Union, would be a moat inestimable public blessing.

JUST Rkboke.—T he Legislative com m me e appointed to Investigate the bad lriati agement of the National Savings Bank at J* ncordi N< H , did not make up their report whitewashing mood. They charge the principal blame of the cashier's defalcation on the tiustees of the bank, where it belongs. These persons were dummies, or mm of straw, bo shamelessly indifferent to their duties that, acoording to the drift of the evidence, they 3 ade no examination whatever into the books tbe cheating cashier. Had they given intelligent glance at the books any time in B at five years,they wonld have found some ing wrong; and could have prevented the great fraud committee, It is wonderful, in deed, that a knavish cashier, having such a worthless board abovo him, should not have robbed the bank of its last dollar. As a fact, the bank Is declared to be solvent. But for draliM^that, no thanks are due to the trustees. There are in a an the Honesty and Dishonesty. [Hartford Times,] The drift of things In the South, whets the Slates' seem to be organizing inti two parties, white men v . negroe*, was perhaps inevitable.

J., having become involved in rivalry alwut a young lady, tho result was that Sanders sent a challenge to mortal com bat to Newell. The "defi" was accepted. The New York Times says : "Mr. E. L. Cowart acted us the second of Newell, and Robert F. Stockton for Sanders. The hour wan nine o'clock on last Thursday evening, and the place the grounds of the Freehold base hall club. Promptly at the hour principals and seconds were on hand, and some half a hundred spectators. Mr. Stockton measured off fifteen paces with the coolness of old Commodore Stockton himself, and then stepping back, called out in a clear, ringing voice, "one—two—three." The last word wan scaroely uttered when tho two pis tols were tired simultaneously, aud Sanders fell. His second ran to him, tore open his coat, and called out, "Run for a Burgeon, quick !'' The terrified Newell threw down his pistol and ran—but not for a physician. He leaped down the embankment and made his way home, where he remained until the next day, when to his inexpressible relief he heard that his antagonist, Sanders, was not dead, in fact was not hurt at all. The truth of it was that the seconds, Messrs. Stockton and Cow art, took particular care to load the pistols with blank cartridges, letting Sanders into the secret, whose sudden fail was arranged beforehand. The whole thing, although a dead earnest affair to one, was the hugest kind of a joke to all else, and has created more amusement in Freehold than anything of the kind that luis occurred for years."
