Attempt to kill.

--A daring attempt to kill was made by a negro man, named Abner, belonging to Col. Langhorne, on Friday night. One of our most respected citizens, Capt. M. R. Bohannon, in company with his wife, was passing the factory of Col. Langhorne, when the negro deliberately fired at them twice, with, as is supposed, a pistol loaded with shot. Fortunately neither the Captain or his wife received any injury. As soon as the negro had fired he ran off, but not before he was recognized with sufficient certainty to be identified. --Lynchburg (Va.) Republican.
