As we learn, last week two whit* women called at Mrs. Edwards' har-room, and offered to tell herfortnne.

Th? woman fully believed their tale, but her curiosity, (the only weakness of women.) got tho better of her, and on Saturday night she went to see If the expected fortune had arrived She dtd not discover the fortune, and concluded to look in the bag and see if thit was all right. To her horror and diamnv no bag of treasure* was found, bnt in its place a bag of the umn dimensions and weight tilled with lead The fortnne tellers, at their last visit, bad adroitly substituted this bag of lead for the bag of treasure and carried itofT.

Towards dark Mr M Bridweli. our Assistant Chief of Police, met a man at the* saloon ol a man name Henry Smith, near tho post-office by the name of Joseph Williams, from Rogrrsville. We learn that Mr Bridwell bad teen Williams a short time previous and Williams took exceptions to the manner that Bridweli looked at him, and made the re. mark in a barber-shop that if Bridweli ever looked at him in that way again be wonld kill him. Bridweli waa informed of the threat, and soon after met Williams at the saloon, where words passed, and at the request of the proprietor stepped into the backyard to talk the matter over. They soon returned, when words were again angrily passed, at t W illams drew a revolver aud shot Bridweli in the left eye with two successive sbotx. when Bridweli drew his revolver and sbo: Williams through the abdomen. Etch Urea tonr shots, but only two took effect on Bridweli and two on Williams. Williams is mortally wounded and cannot recover.
