Ai we hare published newspaper account? of this affiir. which we now hare reason to believe did injustice to one of the parties engaged in it, we herewith republish a late letter to the Phil adelphia Press on the subjcct, from that gen tleman?a member elect to the U. S. House of Representatives from California. It will be found of interest to the reader: PniLADBLPBT.4. Oet. .Id. lAi7. | Col John }V Forney:?Sir; Immediately after the difficulty at Chambersburg. I returned to our fann. and hare not. until this morning, received the newspaper versions of the affair It appears that nearly all the information upon the subject is derived from one of the parties implicated, and therefore to be falcon with much allowance. In regard to those state ments gathered from parties who could hare seen but little of the affray, or most of whom whom received it in an exaggerated form. I proj>ose. as far as my recollection will serve me a st itement of the whole affa r. My younger brother and myself first were aware of the pres ence of Craig at Chambersburg about I o'clock in the day Mr father, apprehensive of our return to town, imposed upon us the most pos itive injunction that we should not do so until after the departure of the cars, at 10 minntes after 2. Owing to the fact that our mother was coming down with some relatives at 4 o'clock, we gave him the required promise I then *tat? d to my father, that from the statements of Craig made to many parties, (that he expected to fight whenever we met,) I believed that he had come himself, instead of seuding his son, in order to irritate and provoke me, and while i would comply with my promise, yet if Craig stayed an hour after the departure of the cars, he did so at his own peril; that I would not and could not suffer the degradation of his presence around a homo that he had made desolate. When we supposed the cars had started, my brother and myself, promising to await the ar rival of my mother and her friends, started to town Wben within a short distance of the de pot. Robert remarked the cars had not started. No words passed between us; no plan of fight; no concert of any kind We walked up, pass ing the first car. ana thence to the seoond; my brother remarked "there be is." I looked in the window, discovered Craig on the opposite side, and ibout four or five feet from me. I should have ?hnt him there, but it has always been my determination to open the fight faco to face, should we come in collision. I told Robert to remain quiet, and walked back some ten or fifteen paces, to the front of the car. I entered the front door, advanced. I think, about three or four pacts, when the pound of a shot. I believe, from Robert, brought my pistol np. I do not now know who fired first. Craig or myself, but my impression is, that it was almost simu'.t-neons. I was stand ing during the Lrst three of my uwn shots, ereit in the centre <>i the cars, exposed to a fire so rapid, that I could not take aim, lest, in time of aocking and aiming, he should-take u deliberate shot, as he was armed with self c ckin? revolvers, able to fire several shots to my cno 1>uring this time he was almost entirely protected by the seats shooting in a stooping I ?s:ur< From where I stood, to the back end ot tw tar, there was but one person beside Craig and myself I may have passed others in entering the car ; if so. and I understand that it is tbe case, excitement and irritation, not wutWoaui. mad* me forget that I km perilling other lives. After the above, Craig and myself both retreated towards the doors he to uw back one, I to the front; ^tbis is tbe pursuit mentioned.) I believe we exchanged t-hoU at the >loor I am not certain, but it wa? said my last shot was fired oauide tbe car. I stood upon the platform of the car. supjosing I bad expended my last shot, and the only use I could make o: ray pistol. aM th<5 use I did make was to intimidate. When Crai<. after Having tbe back end of the car. jumped upon the platform. he and Robert exchanged shots? thr*? or four?each of them partiallv protected by the columns of the porch. Craig fired two shou along the car while I was watching his proceeding, but which did no damage, as I t<tok my head out of the way. He tbea jumped on his end of the car aiid down on tne ? ther aide, which was tbe last I saw of him. Thinking he bad run around the depot, we went a round so as to meet him and prevent him getting at us unaware!. It wa there I saw Mr. James Riley, who-e name is used to substantiate the repTrfs in the Harris burg papers, rand who does not endorse their fatements t I mistook him, from site r?nd dress and j?>inted my pistol at him, but in a second discovered my error My brother and myself walked up town to reload, not thinking Craig was hurt, or that be would be able to get ?;ff on the cars. We beard at the gunsinitn's that Craig was wounded, and we were not ar rested, but voluntarily gave ourselves up. The above, in ail essentials, is a correct state ment. I now propose to review the statements of the H-irrisburg papers, and the vernion they doubtless believed to be true First, the Her ald. froui which I extract the following: ?* When tbey arrived there, they both walked rue platform of the depot, alongside which the cars stand, until they espied the ob ject of their search, when Joseph immediately jam pel up to the door of the car. and Robert ran to the opposite end. and each fired in at Craig. The car was full of passengers, and it may well be supposed that the disturbance im mediately ereated the wildest alarm amongst them. S>me threw themselres down on the floor. otners d?Jged behind tbe eeats. others jumped out of the windows, and ageneral scene of excitement occurred The firing was con tinued by the brothers in this way for several rounds, but both seemed to be under so much excitement that they were unable to take di rect aim. and Craig remained unwoundel. As soon as be could do ao. he extracted a rerolver Irom the place where it was confined, and fired it several times. ea?h time taking aim at Jo seph He has since said that he ?fid not desire to injur* Robert, whom he might have shot with the greatest ease There were some twelre or thirteen shots fired in nil in the car. Guiding that he could do nothing in the car, I'raig made for closer action with Joseph, when th* latter starivd to run. aud was followed by ' ra?g. with the other brother in the rear. During this rare Crai? fired sereral shots at Joseph, one taking effect in the arm. and in juring him slightly. Robert also fired several shots at Craig one of which entered his back I'uriag the melee Craij was also pierced in tfce graia by a ball, but we cannot say with occu racy fr^ni whose pistol The parties were sep arated after having chased one another around tbe depot building fur lunu time, and endan gering the lives of a great many persons who were in tbe vicinity. All the parties were arm ed with two pistols apiece." Mr Craig had his weapons in his hand before a shot wa? fired ; drawing thein the moment I moved from tbe place I first saw him. some seconds be lore I reached the spot where we commenced firing It was this fact which in duced Rcbert McKibbiu to shoot, believing that he would kill me as I entered tbe ?*nrs, or before I eon'd approach him. As for his ma king fbr closer action, and pursuing me. it is ? simply a fabrication , L., ho left the back end of the eara, aud ticver at any time hred a shot at ut. x?epl iu the cars and on :be pluttorai of tbe oar, where I stood, until the cloae of the shooting and after I ceaaed firing. As to bis following me when he shot me in the arm, it is equally untrue ; be only graxed ray aim. cuttingtbe ooat. *rd that inside tbe tars K >ber' MrKibbin was not in the ear at any time and never ia the rear of Mr. Craig. The v>*?rtioa of the Herald, that Mr. Craig did not at'erap* to shoot Robert, is m?t by th* fact tb*t all parties war* armed with two pis tols W hether this is done to aatablish lb* peaceable character of Mr. Craig and justify him in enter.ug a community with a revolver in each pocket, beside s*i<i-artua, I am at a loas to saj I bad but one pistol, fired five ahota, one barrel not being discharged, find 1 un aware of (he fact until the affair was over. My brother had a small five-sboother?no other arms. If the number of shot*, stated by the Herald to have been thirteen?Mr. Craig must have fired eight or nine. To close with the Heraid. its information is almost entirely incurroct. and much of it shoer invention in those who gave it to them. The Harrisburg Telegraph say? that Mr. Craig was returning to his wile. The whole community are aware that they have been separated for three years, she voluntarily leaving him ; and while her christian duty and her marriage vow would take her to him in sicknass or death, in all things else the pride and honor of woman has repelled the Leper. As to the statement of shooting me in the arm and leg. pursuing me to tha door, it is a piece of embellishment without the shadow of truth. The statements copied into one of the city papers, both in regard to the parties and fact*, are equally exaggerated. It says fifteen shots were nred by the McKibbins. and five by Craig. The facts have been stated. The closing paragraph is purely malicious in the informant, that the firing was principally at Robert, for whom Jeremiah is substituted, a* Mr. Craig's own statement gives it the lie, for he says he did not desire to shoot Robert. My own opinion of the number of shots, and immediately after the affair, can be heard from Col. McClure, of Chambersburg. as I stated to him that my impression was. that Craig had three pistols. I am probably mistaken. Iam only positive that be had two, and bis firing a much greater number of shots than myself, s >me of them after I had ceased firing. Iu conclusion, I desire to say, that I make this publication simply from misstatements that prejudice otheri than myse|f I feel no necessity for justification. Had I killed htm under any circumstances, or in any way, it would be no atonement for the past. I do not think myself justifiable in risking my life as I did in order to take his. If every son of my father bad combined to destroy him, there is not an honest heart that would not say the provocation was more than sufficient. My self respect?that is more to me than any public opinion?fully, entirely acquits me in all that I have done ; and for ray brother Robert, who. in all probability. saved my life, I kn?w be has the approval of his conscience?the respect of all who chensh the sanctity of their home. Jos. C. McKibbi*. Escav* op a Yorvo Gim, rnoM Rnx?A pretty young Irish girl, named Kilen Connery, about sixteen years old, has for some time past been living at Saratoga, Xcw York, as a <]<? me^tic in a family there, but has recently been thrown out of employment. Thrown entirely upon her own resources, Ellen went to Troy to fee if that larger town would not be a more eligible field for her to obtain employment in, than a fashionable watering place after the close of the " season. ' Knowing not a singlesoul in T roy. she thought of but one way to find work? by applying at an '? Intelligence Office."' Ac cordingly. she went to one in Congress street, and took her place among the other applicants for situations. She had not been there long be fore she seemed to attract the attention of an old lady, who was on the lookout for a girl. Old lady was pursy and short-winded : old ladv wore several pounds of chains, lockets, rings, brace let". and other cheap jewelry ; old lady had a '?jolly red nose.7' and a good many red ribbons, and red stripes in her heavy silks dress, and alto gether?what with hergew-gaws and her whim whims. and her jigamyrees, and her thingum bobs?was a very gay-looking old lady indeed Plie. the old la4y-*-wbose cognomen was ''Mr* Smith "?engaged Ellen, after having looked at ber for some time in a sort of professional man ner; and tf?ok her home at once in a carriage, to a large'hou.-e with a fancy door in Seventh street. Ilere she was allotted an extroardina rv nice chamber for a servant, and began to think that Fortune was not only smiling upon her, but even indulging in very broad grins. She was soon to be undeceived, however, for Mrs Smith.'" the gay-looking old lady, short ly made her appearance with a gentleman who wa-i very nicely dressed, and who was left by Mrs. 8., with Ellen in her chamber, with par ticular instructions from the old lady for Ellen to "treat him well and be obliging." Then f->r the flr?t time did Ellen understand that she had been iuveigled into a den of ill-fame. The " gentleman'attempted by words of persuasion, temptation, and force. to commit a foul outra^o upon her person, but failed. She escaped, and sought refuge at the nearest staMon-hou*e. Mr*. Smith was arrested upon her complaint, and lodged in jail, but owing to a flaw in the commitment, was soon liberated again, to en tice more yonng and innocent girls to her den. Some benevolent persons took charge of Ellen, and she has. doubtless, ere this, found an asylum in some respectable household. ? Not lone since a worthy pastor of one of onr city chnrches who combines divinity and hurn'tr in a woof of wit as bright and rich as a '? cloth of gold," was called upon on* evening by a nn meless gentleman and informed that his services would be required at an early hour in th? morning for a peculiar aud delightful duty, and took his leave. Bright and early the reverend gentleman was ready and waiting, when a carriage was driven up by a " sorrel" boy with 4* freckled"' horses, who rang the bell, which was answered by the dominie in propria personae. The following dialogue ensued : j>oy?" Is a pusson 'ere a?goes to the cars?'" '? No. sir; I am going to a wedding!" " The boy's face fell as he said. " get in, sir ?'But," remarked the clergyman, ?do you know where to go?" " No. sir !*' "Nor do I. Who sent you?" " Mr. , sir." '? Well, go and find Mr. , and inquire where I ain required." Off went the t>oy with his carriage, and in a short time returned and the conversation was renewed. " Have you found out the place?" asked the Minister. 11 No. sir; but I've found out what street he went on: you'd bitter get in, sir, I guess I kin And it." And in he got. After drivingsomc distance, the carriage was stopped, the driver got down, opened the door, and with the wo?t sober coun tenance, said : " There's a feller a courtin' a gal here, you might try the place." And the dominie did try it. and found the precise place v?here his services were needed by two anxious and palpitating hearts, which be quickly bound together in the indissoluble bonds of matrimony. After the services were onnclnded. the story was told, and a happier, jollier laugh has seldom been hoard. " There's a feller aoourtin* a gal here, you might try it!" I.iDiAt Naves???
