The Shooting of Jones.
Ma. Editor: la compliance with your re
quesl, we .give below a correct statement of
the immei'iate fac's connected with the assas
sins! ion of Sheriff Janes.- .
Being in Lawrence on the S3d ins!., we taw
the peaceable arrest of aix persons by Sheriff
Jones, with a detachment of Unre4 Slates
troops under -Lieut.' Molniosh. Everything
want off quietly, aill just before dark when
some men congregated about in different pla
ces, abusing the pro-slavery men- Gen. Fieice
Sheriff Jones and others. ' Several tiroes hr Ihe
evening we warned Sheriff Jonea-upoa Infor
mation being givt-n to us that possibly an at'
tempi upon hit life wad Id hs made lobe can
tiouaaud circuuect. , . VVuh Lieut, Molni
tob, we with a geuilcman by itie same of
Yates, went to Ihe camp, intending to pats
bfftime'and tpetid'll-e night.
Soon after )w had viadv ptrpara'.iona for
sleepin, M.d ones' csme iui asd commenced
talking in regard lo the arrangemiBla for ibe
night for the care of the prisoners. Soon Lieut.
Mcintosh, Mr.'JoneV and one of us, (P.,)
went a few paces from the lent lo gel a glass
of wa er. While' so etigg,d, some persons
came up and inquired whera Sheriff Jonee was
and wide intuiting - remark, Concerning hia
Courage, when ite J.) arose from tti siooplng
posture he Was in and remarked,, -"Here I am,

person irl t ctWd standing near 6red inlo the
party; when the remark was made by P.,
"Jones, you are slot," ond upon exaoMUilion,
it was found that s bullet had passed through
his-pants withotit injury. ' The party relum
ed lo the tent, where, when we commenced
talking shout this dastardly and hclIUb attempt
at assassination, a man, pretending to b-s
drunk, inirnded himself into I lie tent, irr out
opinion for ihe express purpose of finding out
the positioner Sheriff Jones., ' - 1

Sheriff ifant the party bad noase for him, when
he immediately tro end left, snd in less
than live minutes, aa we were eonversinf to
gether, Jones fell, exclaiming Oh;!, He at
tempted to draw a tuite and find Ute-dasttird-,
ly scoundrel worse then a fieudt who would
thus under the cover of 'iieht, stlemrrttliti lia
of a fellow bing; but the wound waaauch as
to prevent Ins using atoll. The shot tame
