Details of a Desperate Fight with
Convicts -a! Jeffersoaville.
The Louisville Courier-Journal,
of Tuesday, gives the following detail-
of the desperate light with con
victs at Jeffersonviile, Ind. For
some time past these convicts had
been feigning sickness and had been
permitted to o to the hopital,with
tlieir names placed on the regular
sick lista-j havingbeen excused from
duty. Monday afternoon, four men,
one after another, quietly sauntered
out of the hospital room and met at
the iron door, leadinginto the guard
ro jm, on the outside of which Geo.
Chamberlain was standing as guard.
Some one npproachiug, Chamlvr
lain unlocked the door and opened
it. No sooner had this been fairly
done than the convicts simultane
ously rushed through the opening,
and hurling Chamberlain again; t
the wall ran rapidly through the
guard-room, from which the way to
the street was clear. The scuffling
and the noie incident to their
flight alarmed several persons who
were sitting in the offices, and Mr.
Millard immediately endeavored to
intercept the fugitives. Oneof them
instantly drew a long navy revolver,
and, with an oath, pulled the trig
ger, but to Mr. Millard's good for
tune the load failed to be discharged.
On the steps leading to the street
was standing a "trusty" colored
convict named Brown. He, observ
ing the state of affairs, gave the
alarm, and, while attempting to
impede tlieir flight, was shot in tlte
face, the ball entering his left cheek
and coming out at the throat, in
flicting a dangeorus wound. The
convicts liad now reached the street
ami outside the prison walN. The
shooting had aroused Col. Shuler,
the warden, who, together with the
guards and citizens, gave chase.
In the meantime the convicts
kept up a rapid miming fire from
their revolvers, which were long
navy weapon, bright and new.
Their pursuers, five or six of whom
were alo armed, returned the lire
as rapidly as given. Chamberlain,
who was leading the pursurers sev
eral yard-, gained on the fugitives,
until he came within forty teet of
Kennedy. The lattcrhaltcd, turned,
and, taking deliberate aim, tired at
Chamberlain, the ball striking the
latter almost exactly in the center
of tho forehead, inflicting of course,
a fatal wound. The pause in the
pursuit, caused by Chamberlain's
fall, enabled Kennedy to stop for an
instant, in which he threw
off his convict coat and
pantaloons, revealing n full
suit of citizen's clothes. Then
the race ltegan in earnest on both
sides. It seemed to resolve it-elf
into a question of speed, as the
shooting, although fierce ami con
tinuous, wtts not Miliiciemiy accu
rato to be elleetive.. Stanley, get
ting behind, was surrounded hy
those in advance, and was about to
be taken, when his three comradis
ran to Ids rescue, firing so hotly
that Stanley succeeded in breaking
from his captors. A man named
Black, a well-known carjwnter, hap
enod to be in tho way of the fight,
endea ored to seize one of the con
victs, who, anticipating his inten
tion, placed his revolver near his
head and snapped the cap, "which
failed to discharge the cartridge, and
his life was saved. When a distance
of nearly a quarter of a mile from
the prison was readied, Xewton Port
suddenly threw up his hands and
with a loud cry tumbled upon the
ground dead, his body apparently
having been made the target for
eaeli of his pursuers, as it was after
wards found literally covered with
bullet-holes. This brought his com
rades to a halt. Then came the
battle. The convicts displayed long
gleaming bowie-knives, while their
ammunition seemed exhaustless,
their facility in loading the cham
bers of their revolvers being some
what remarkable. Col. Shuler be
ing in the lead, and singled out by
Applegatc, who coolly shot at him
three timos, one ball passing through
his pantaloons just above the knee,
without, however, pcnetrating
the flesh, and another ball
cutting off a lock of hair from the left
side of lijs ljead above the ear. Tho
attacking party coming up, stones,
bowlders and whatever missiles
were available were showered on the
convicts, A well-directed bowlder
brought Kennedy to tlo ground,
while two bullets struck Stanley in
the neck, wounding Ids dangerous
ly and rendering him hors clc com
bat.. The capture of the entire party
was then speedily effected, anil
wjth their overpowered prisoners
securely bound, tho crowd, which
had swelled to fifty or ?nore, re
turned to th prion. Tho three
convicts were then heavily ironed
and locked securely in their cells.
They preserved a dogged ami sul
len 'silence, refusing to answer any
questions asked them.
AEacs ior u Bride.
I JacVson (Tcnn.) Whig, May 3.J
Love laughs at bolts and bars,and
yet, at the same time, there is
"many a slip betwixt the cup and
the lip." Tlie following true story
pungently illustrates both of the
sibove truisms. It happened a few
days ago in adjoining county. A
comely youth fell madly in love
with a rural belle. She smiled upon
his suit aud doubtless sighed ujon
his waistcoat. They resolved to be
come "twain of one flesh," but tho
stern fitheribf tho woujd-be bride
was dead against it and fierce
ly forbid the bans. But
"love laughs at baits and bars,"
and the young couple stole away
amid the friendly darkness of a
"moonless night, lied to a neighbor's,
and about tawn the next morning
succeeded in procuring the services
of a parson. All things wcrp made
ready to tie tlte silken knot, and the
hopes of the lovers beat high w ith
the joys of a speedy fruition. But
ri$rht here the parson manifested
some doubts as to tlte propriety of
the proceeding, and Insisted on
sending for the cruel parent and
getting his consent before proceed
ing wtj the ceremony. After
much argument, r.nt his promising
to Intercede with the girl's fath
er, and convincing both that s.uc
ecss would crown his apjn-als in their
behalf, they finally consented, and
the errasciiilc old gent was sent for.
Here comes in that other truism:
rfl'ljore's many a slip twlxtcup and
tho lip " Jn due season and within
an hour for tho messenger to return
with the cruel parent, a fierce clat
ter of hoofs was heard down the
lane and a voice loudly pliouting,
"I won't consent, d d if I do; I
solemnly forbid them bans," struck
consternation and terror into tho
hearts of tho would-be bride anil
groom. Tho groom ran down to
tho door, and looking down the
lane, saw at its larther end tho
InfurlateJJfather coming like the
wind, under whip and spur, hat in
hand, his white hair wildly stream
ing, and" shouting with every
breath, "I won't consent," etc.
"With the promptness of a veteran,
the lover seized his Intended bride
and mounted his steed in hot
haste, bore her off jn the opposite
direction at a furious speed. The
father, with the vigor of despair,
plunged his spurs deeper into his
foaming horse, and gave hot pur
suit, followed by the parsoiand the
assembled guests, all mounted, and
taking a lively interest in the
sequel of the race. Down the road,
over hills, and through the mist of
valleys, into forests, vocal with the
songs of morning, they held their
mad career. But the steed that
Iwre the lovers gradually slackened
his pace under the double ouruen,
and the avenging parent steadily
gained on them. Finally he over
tool: the riving pair, and reaching
forth snatched his daughter from
her lover's grasp, wheeled his pant
ing steed and bore her rapidly to
ward home. The lover, maddened
but not despairing, gave chase, aud
back over the same road, cheered
by the shouts of the excited party,
rushed the fathor and daughter
and lover. The young man soon
devoured the distance between
him and his intended bride, and
witii a grasp of iron tore her from
the parental arms and essayed to
bear her oil in triumph. But the
old man, game to the last, renewed
his strength and speed, and again
seized his daughter, and a furious
struggle eesued. But the part- of
friends and the parson put an end
to the struggle by giving the girl to
her father, and advising the young
man to wait for a more propitious
occasion. Thus ended, but not
finally, we feel assured, one of the
most exciting races for a bride
known to either truth or fiction.
Fun in a Police Courtiin Detroit-
"Ladies and gentleman, the lion
is now about to be turned loose,"
said Bijah, as lie rapped on the desk,
"and all you who don't maintain
proper decorum, anil so forth, will
get into trouble."
"Oh, Shay? is that you?" inquir
ed his llonor, as Catherine Shay
was brought out.
"I wisli I wasn't," she replied,
folding her arms across her apron
and carefully studying the knot
holes in the floor.
"Well, let the swearer swear," he
continued, as the officer held up his
right hand; and as soon as we get
at the facts in the case you can tell
whether you've got to pay rent this
summer, or whether you'll getyour
board for nothing,"
It was disturbing the peace. She
disturbed itjusta little just a little,
she admits, but it was all on ac
count of another woman, whocalled
her a grass-widow and taunted her
with wanting to marry. Therewas
no whooping or yelling no pulling
hair and rolling down-stairs, and
Catherine wouldn't do so again for
$50, she says.
"Catherine," continued the court,
as he carefully poised the penholder
on his finger and got it to balance,
"you are growing old. Upwards of
sixty years of strugglo with the
world lias made your hair gray,
your cheeks hollow, and your eyes
dim. You can't expect to live
many years longer, ami why don't
you go home, sit down in a splint
bottom chair, lug out your clay-pipe,
and calmly driit down the river of
contentment to tho ocean of eternal
Catherine squeezed several tears
out of her left eye, and they fell
with a thud upon the floor.
"Go, poor old woman," continued
the Court, "go home and be happy.
It affects me to see the aged cheek
trickling down the briny tear, and
if I should send you to the work
house I couldn't expect to get a taste
of my strawberries and cream this
Xo sucli sentiments actuated the
Court in the case of Joseph Flynn,
whoe closely cropped hair stood up
like matches in a mud pie. "When
Joseph was told that the charge was
drunkenness, ho flatly denied it,
claiming that lie was taking a gen
tle spring tonic for the liver com
plaint. "It may be it may be," said the
Court, in a reflective tone; "this is
the gentle spring season, and I
know that folks do have the liver
complaint, and do take tonics. But,
sir, look me in the eycwmil tell me
what you were doing last night at
midnight. Did that gentle spring
tonic throw you on a coal-pile, and
keep you shouting and whooping
for a whole hour? And you
kicked at the officer, and you wan
ted to bounce him, and you left ono
of his coat-tails on that bloody field.
Tonic, sir tonic sucli tonics, sir,
cannot be forced down tho throat of
this court, and you go up, siri for 30
days or thereabouts."
"He wants to be forgiven," said
Bijah, as he escorted out James
Hecloy. "Ho says if you'll let
him go tills time ho hopes to drop
dead if lie doesn't go at it, and buy
stock iu a leading tempcrauce pa
per, and keep a cold water fountain
in every room in the hjne."
"I can't do it," replied his honor,
after hearing the testimony, "Jf it
had been a common drunk I
would'nt say a word, but when a
man has to be wheeled down here
and lugged around and lifted, I can
not pat him on the back and send
him out into the world again. If
ho ever edits a temporanco paper
I'll willingly subscribe, but just now
lie is going up for thirty days."
Bijah brought out as hU last case
a relic of the last century, named
Peter McConnell, a man seventy
five years old.
"Where's the thirteen men who
brought in this prisoner?" de
manded the Court, as they propped
the old man up with achair and
held his head.
"Take him away," his Honor
continued; "go and get him. some
milk and cakes, and give him
lnonej' to sit on tho ferryboat and
hoar tho band play 'Molljc Darling,'
until ho falls asleep and sonie angel
leads him over the valley of death.
Go right out, old man. If I sent
you up I'd expect to have a sewer
tax levied on me once a month tho
