that unless its terms were complied

This was followed by a peremptory

for the assistance of the sheriif
were merely for the pnrpoM' of
covering what was intended to be a
coup de main on the part of the

introducing a body of l'iukerlon
guards into the mill enclosure.
These men had been rendezvoused
some live or six miles below the
city on ti e Ohio river, at which
point two model ha ryes had been
prepared for them. The barges
were tilled up with bunks, cookiny
arrangements and other accommo
dations, and, as an extra precaution,
as if in preparation for the si eye to
which they were subjected to-day,
were lined with heavy sleel plates
on the inside, while the whole back

n fierce battle was precipitated, both
sides c chauyiny heavy volleys of
shot. The rinkertons were all
armed with Winchester rilles, but
at the point where the attempt to
bind was made there was a sleep
embankment mid they were com
pelled to yo in sinyle tile and were

the steady tire from the shore. The
noise ol the battle spread about the

The news of the riot reached I 'itts

workers now idle conyreyated in
the streets, while I mud reds of others
armed with yarns and revolvers and
well supplied with amunition, took
up the march to reinforce the strik

secured a small brass ten-pound
cannon and planted it within the
steel billet ciiibrazurc, so as to com

time mere than a thousand men
took up ii position on the opposite
side of the river and also planted a

It is understood the men propose,

there is a nervous dread of what is
