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 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.
Fire. --About 12 o'clock on the night of Saturday a framed stable on Council Chamber Hill, belonging to John A. Belvin, was set on fire by an incendiary and entirely destroyed, together with six or eight bales of hay, which had been stowed away in the loft a short time since. Two old wooden buildings, situated on the brink of the hill, adjoining the stable, took fire from the flames and were also burnt up. They were in the occupancy of several negro families, and belonged to Mr. Moncure, of this city. The greater portion of the clothing and furniture in these houses was consumed.
Runaway. --Ran away from the subscriber on the 24th instant, at Manchester, boy Henry; about sixteen years of age; five feet high; nearly black; slender; long face and thick lips; on right or left side, a men about the size of a walnut; has eruption on his skin, resembling mosquito bites. When the said boy left he had on a saddler's jacket and a common cotton shirt, rather light-colored pants, old hat and shoes, all of which clothes were very dirty. I will give one hundred Dollars in the present Confederate currency for the apprehension and delivery of said Boy to Messrs Lee -- Bowman, Richmond, or in any jail so I can get him. Said boy was sold by Messrs Hill, Dickinson & Co., for James Gray's sons. He is supposed to be lurking about Richmond, or at Mr. Mallory's, on the Mountain road, ten miles above the city, where his mother lives, or in Manchester, where he has a sister living with Mr. Rowlett Wintress.
