A STTrifT.-TTv.-r? OiTTUAni? TMipA'fn-i
lile Chronicle states that an atro-j
cious act Avas recently perpetra
on board the steam-boat Governor
Pickens, when twenty miles above
that city G. B. IIaydel Esq. ed
itor of the Marengo Patriot, was shot
and dangerous ly wounded by aperson
named Gee, a fellow passenger who
understand resides in Gainesville
ia this state. The circumstance is
as far as we have been able lo gath
er them tliey, are as follows : The
"boat left this city late on Saturday,
L'vening,Mr. Haydeu repaired to the
holier deck, 'where seated in a circle
of friends , he was engaged in a po
litical conversation. While this was
poing on. Gee obtruded himself,
iiid commenced using very abusirc
language, bantering Mr. H. to bet, to
fight, &o. Mr. H. did all in his pow
er to evade the conversation,' remark
ing that he did not wish to bet or fight
JukI desired him to leave him. After
sitting- a few moments, Mr. H, arose
for 'the purpose of retiring to the
ladies' cabin, to join his -wife, who
was also on board. As soon as he
rose, Gee drew" a pistol and shot Mr,,
if, the ball lodgings we understand
in the hip bone. Gee was immedi
ately secured by the pasengers, and
the boat put back bringing both the
wounded man and Gee to this city,
Surgical aid was immediately procu
red for Mr. Hay den and although the
wound is pronounced rather danger
ous, still Hones are entertained of his
recovery. Gee was promptly com
mitted to prison. We have never
heard of a more wanton, cold blooded
attempt at murder than'this,as presen
ted to us. Mr. Harden is a young
and is much beloved hy a numerous
circle of friends and acquaintance.
The North .East Boundary Ques
tion. In the course of a debate in
the House cf Commons, Lord John
Russel alluded to the Boundary Ques
tion, and said their were two seperate
and distinct questions involved in
these discussiens with the United
States. The first had reference to the
boundary and the other to the agree
ment which had been entered into
pending the negotiations ; and he did.
not think that, either on the general
question, or on the question of agree
ment, a serious quarrel would take
place; nor did he in the least degree
anticipate that the harmony of the two
countries is likely to be interrupted.
The Governments of both countries
are too sensible of the advantages of
peace to wish for its termination, and
both were perfectly convinced their
were nothing in the boundaJy ques
tion which oould not be amicably ar
ranged if both parties were determi
ned to abide by the principles of jus
tice. Another Editor Rewarded !
