Jim, living in Newport, was charged with
attempting to commit a gross outrage
on the person of a little girl about 12 years
of age, residing in that borough ; being
prevented from accomplishing his purpose
only by an older sister hearing her cries for
assistance and coming to her rescue. A party
was then got together, and a court presi
ded over by Judge Lynch was held, when
it was decided to give the fellow thirty or
forty lashes on the baro back. This sen
tence was carried into cxccution,thc stripes
being well laid on by tho father of tho girl,
after which tho fellow was warned to leave
town under penalty of being shot.
