SATURDAY EVE'NG., DECEMBER 20. A DESPERATE ENCOUNTER. Major Geo. E. Ferrend, of Virginia City, Nevada, a man well known everywhere on the Pacific coast,bhut himself in the head last week, ioflicting a w.mud winch soon P?ivei,atal* ?" noticing his career the VlrginiaCity Enterprise relates the following : . . In Caoiptooville, California, 10 1Sd8 or lboJ, he had a terrible personal encounter with a uian of desperate obaracter, and in the battle re ceived a horrible wound with an axe. It ap pears that he had some trouble with this mau and it was agreed that when they again wet tney should "meet fightiug." The desperado,armed with an axe, shortly after came into a .saloon, where he saw the iMajor sitting in his *h\rt sleeves. As he advanced the Major arose and brew a large kuile The mao with he axe moved cautiously forward, holding aloot h ? terrible weapon. The Major stood perfectly motionless, warily watching the eyes ol his approaching foe. The outy movement he made was to constantly turn the wrist ol the hand that held the knife, so that the weapon was ceaselessly moving and flashing back and forth. The man advancing with the axe at last could no longer refrain from casting a glance at the weapon thus flashed before his eyes, and the moment he did so the Major sprang lorward with the leap ot a tiger and drove his knife, not only through the heart of his foe, but through his whole body, the point projecting at his back. .But quiok as had been the movement, bis oppo nent was almost as alert?the blows of both men being struck almost at the same instant. The handle of the axe struck the Major on the shoulder, while the whole blade of it was buried in the small of bis back, penetrating and cutting one of his kidneys. Both men tell to the floor together, and for a time it was thought that both were dead; but contrary to the expectations of all the Major recovered from his fearful wound in due time, and was as ready for Iresh adventures, military or other wise, as before. .. . , To give a sketch of even half of the Major s many exploits would require whole columns, indeed pages of this paper. All are now ended and by his own hand. There were rumors of financial embarrassment abroad yesterday, and all manner of conjectures were indulged in by those in search ot a cause for the feariul deed, but the one we have given is probably more nearly oorrect than any other, that he feared he was losing his sanity and would be sent to an insane asylum?he concluded to end his lite while he wa'e yet sufficiently in his right mind to So so. Major Ferrend was as brave a man as ever lived, and was a man highly esteemed by all who knew him, and particularly by his old eompaBions in arms. His death has greatly shocked the whole community. fall clothing.
