A Sad accident.
--We regret to learn that Mr. David Hendricks
, a respectable citizen of Bulloch county
, was accidentally shot dead on Saturday night last.
The circumstances, as related to us, are as follows: A man named Rigdon
, of that county, having been committing depredations for some time upon his neighbors' property, and said Rigdon
being an outlaw, a vigilance committee was formed to arrest him, and went out with shot guns on Saturday night in pursuit of Rigdon
, when the committee got separated by some means, and, coming together in the dark, one party took the other for the object their pursuit, and fired, killing Mr. Hendricks
instantly.--Waynesboro' (Ga.) Independent South.
