Attempted murder. --A most diabolical attempt at murder was committed near Benton, Miss., a few ughts since. As Mr. Richard Boyd was returning home from town and had gone into his house, he heard some one calling him in the yard. He got up to answer the voice, when he saw two of his slaves. Andy and Steven standing in the yard, the latter having his double barrelied shot gun cocked and presented towards his head. He fired one barrel, the contents of which fractured his left arm severely and the other passed over his left shoulder, leaving one buck shot. The cause of this is not known, as he was an indulgent master.
