have preferred to occupy the position of a specta
tor of the fight, rather than a warrior, in a con
test where the spoils to be brought off and the
glory to be acquired, were not likely to be very
considerable, yet We may be allowed to express
gratification at the prospect of a termination of
the war. So far as we are concerned, we ao

of cheers for Hannibal three cheers for Han

a case which occurred at Grey's tavern, at
l'oa Cove, in Uktfown. last evening. 1 he com
nany had assembled for a dance, and had gone
through several dances, when William Bowman,
of Upper Mill-water, was dancing down the
side of the hall where a young lady of Upper
Still-water (whose namo we suppress) and her
brother were sitting; she rose and discharged
both barrels of a double-barrelled pistol at him,
the ball of one of which took effect in tho back
of his shoulder, and the other entered the wall.
The yonng lady who was dancing with him was
omewl.at uurnt by the powder. A great ex
citement ensued. The young lady was perfect
ly calm, and stated she intended to kilt him
that she came for that purpose. She said the
reason she did not shoot him in the drawing
room was because she could not get near enough
to him. The reason for the act she said was
well known to all present. If she could only
have killed him, she snid, she would have been
perfectly satisfied. We are informed that the
impelling cause of this desperate attempt to
take life and wreak vengeance is well known in
the vicinity where the parties reside, and is tho
one which almost always lies at the bottom of
such acts. We understand he was arrested the
day before for breach of promise, and obtain
ed bail. .
The young lady is said to bo reputable, and
the sympathy of thoso who know her is deci
dedly in her favor. After the act she went a-
way with her brother, and no attempt was made
to arrest her. How seriously the man is wound
ed we cannot learn. The ball was broken up
in consequence. Bangor (Me.) Mercury.
