Attempted Assassination. --At daylight on Friday morning last, as Mr. Fleming Griffin was riding up Broad street in the neighborhood of Horse Swamp Hill, about one mile from the corporate limits, he was halted by a negro fellow, who seized on to the bridle of the horse, and drawing a bayonet, made a thrust at him with it. Missing his aim, Mr. Griffin cocked his gun, which he happened to have with him, whereupon the negro let go the horse and ran off.--Both barrels were fired at him, but nonet, made a thrust at him with it. Missing his aim, Mr. Griffin cocked his gun, which he happened to have with him, whereupon the negro let go the horse and ran off.--Both barrels were fired at him, but no serious injury was inflicted, as the fellow succeeded in making his escape. Several attempts have been recently made upon the lives of persons passing along that locality in the night time, and every one who is compelled to travel it at night alone should go prepared for such emergencies.
