A Fiendish outrage. --We learn that a creature by the name of Henry Mann, who has been unfavorably known in this community for a number of years, was guilty on Saturday evening last of an outrage upon the person of one of his grand-daughters, a little girl of some seven or eight years of age, which verifies the adage that "truth is stranger than fiction." The monster in human shape is now in the jail of this place, awaiting the condign but lenient punishment prescribed by law for such crimes as his. The vigilance of the law officers alone saved him from a suspension between heaven and earth, which is but the just desert of all such monsters in crime as he has proved himself to be.--Danville Register.
