maintains the heroine's character for egotism
to the letter. The other interesting articles
are : The genius of Dickens ; Germany in
New York ; the Plaintiff non-suited ; some
unappreciated Characters ; Old-port in win

with Heads towards the east, and Heroes of
Central Africa. It is, altogether, a number

ATTEMPT AT ROBBERY. — Last Friday,
Mr. Pettiugill, of Leona, had occasion to
visit the eastern portion of the town of
Springfield to borrow some money, and on
his return stopped at the tavern at Spring
field Centre. It was in the evening, and
there was a crowd in the bar-room drinking,
and he was invited to drink, but refused.—
Daring his stay he let drop the remark that
he had been to borrow a hundred dollars,
which it is supposed was the cause of the
assault. Leaving the tavern about nine
o'clock he had proceeded about a mile when
he received a severe blow on the back of his
head from a club. The blow was repeated
several times, and turning, he raised his
hand which was injured by'another b%w.—
Again a stroke cut open the left sido of his
head, severing some of the arteries and
fetching him to his knees. He struck at his
assailant breaking one of his knuckles by
the stroke, and laid him over against the
stone wall next the road. Just then he
thought he saw another person coming, and
he ran back up the road for safety. Reach
ing Nathaniel Mattocks' house he was cared
for and his wounds were dressed.
There is little doubt that this was a case
of attempted murder for the purpose of rob
bery. It behooves men who travel lonely
roads now-a-days, to provide lor their own
