Early in tho evening ?ben it was considered that Murphy fonld die, the excitement reached Ferer heat and there was considerable ulk among the thousands who thronged .ha streets of tho town that summary astico be dealt out in the way of a yriching. The officers feared Buch an mtcorne and quietly spirited the man iwav to St. Clairavillo in a carriage. The circus arrivod in Martin's Forry rosterday morning and was booked to nve two performances, afternoon and iveuinit. Tho shooting occurred about ivo o'clock in tho afternoon, a few uinutes after tho first performance had erininated, and did not occur at the uaughlin mill show grounds, as first retorted, but was near the Cleveland & Pittsburgh lroight depot, above llautvor street, where tho cars used for ransporting the circus outfit were sideracked. STORY OF TUB SHOOTINU. William Wilson, aa attache of the bow, wbo was employed as a ticket eller, and also acted as a foeder of aninuls ia the monagerio, was standing tear ono of tho cars at the time menioned. There was a large crowd of oien and boys standing around, exbibting tho usual curiosity regarding a :ircus and showmen. Tho row first tarted, it is learned on reliable authorty, by reason of a boy making aa inditing remark about a woman whom Wilson claimod to be bis wife. Words vera exchanged and finally Wilson truck the boy with his hand. The ithor boys were going to take np the luarrel, when Marshal Westwood, of Hartin'a Ferry, approached to stop lie fuss. Wilson supposed that the .flicer intonded to arrest him, so when io laid bauds on him be whipped out lis rovolver and tried to shoot the 0flier, who, however, caught the reckless nan's arm; the bullet took annpward ourse and went through tbo marshal's mt without inflicting a wound. Westrood was so startled and surprised at be man's action that be released bis old, whon Wilson made a break lor iperty. He started to go under the ar, bnt Westwood, who had been reinorced by Officer George Murphy, were lot after him, and were about to nab lim whon lio turned with the smoking evolver hWiia hand, and aftor hositatU2 a moment, turned the gun at Muriby, who was the only officer about rearing a uniform, and fired but ONE SHOT AT HIM. Ibis was enough,as the ball ontered the ight breast. Murphy did not immeliately fall, but staggered after his asailant, who tried to enter one of the >as?enger coaches, and pointing him >ut to Officer J. A. Moore, said: "I am lone for; hold him; he is the right nan," and then dropped to the ground inconscious. Moorojumpodup the steps if the car and caught hold of his man and ttempted to pull him from the car, but t this point another showman, at---' "I *" ?una Ktr Wilonn'a call of lUbWU tu kUO OVVUU ts J ' > ouvu w ?? w.

After the shooting Murphy won aken to the office of Sr. Hobenaack nd on examination of bis condition raa made. It was fonnd that the ball, rom a 42-calibro bulldog revolver, bad tVuok him above the right lung, and. iter the examination it was reported* hat it was thought tho ball had not enBred the lung, having struck a rib and angod around, bat not coming out. It ?as boped, on account of tbe ball not aving entered the lung, that Murphy (as not iataily injured, but nothing ould be certain until the ball was loated, vhlcb had not been done at 9 'clock laic night. During the examnation the wounded man .recovered onsclousness, and his cries of pain roro frequent.

"Prof. h?t" ltadly Hurt. There' was another difficulty at Marin's Ferry yesterday.

John Kyne, the proprietor, came out and knocked* Lee down with a brick and kicked him into the gutter. A terrible trash Ai cut in bl> head, and he was mod jfe pretty badly in other ways. PbysieUne dressed bis wounds and he wflti taken to his homo. It was reported lost night that Lea wai more dangerously hart than Officer Murphy. BETTER MAIL FA01LITE8 Badly Needed on a Local Star Boute, to be Aaked for. A movement is on foot along the Star mail route from Wheeling to Cameron, which, if auccoaiifal, will result in giving the people on the route much better mail facilities than they now enjoy. A petition will be presented to the postoffice department praying for the change, which certainly ought to be made. At present, it takes an entire day foj (he single carrier to make the trip of about 35 miles froui Wheeling to Cameron and another for him to return, which is a tri-weekly mail each way. It is now proposed, instead of this arrangement to makes two short direct daily routes, one to run from Wheeling via Sharrard and Limestone to rleaaant Valley and back, and one from Wolf Run, via Heeler's Station and Knoxville to Oameron and return. This would not only cut off about soven miles of travel at present necessary through a section in whlchthero areno'postofflces, but will insure a daily mail delivery at all points in daylight and be equivalent to a through trip each way daily. The need of this service has long boon felt . by the people on' tbo route and it is hoped that tho petition will be promptly pruntnd hv thn nnatoffice authorities. Flood for Assault.
