Through the polltentxs of Mr. A.

itcd our town this week, wo have re
ceived files of Into California papers
from Rhodes &i Whitney, from which
wo glean several items of late news.
Amongst tho most interesting is the
shooting of James King of Wm.,
which csused great excitement nt San
On Wednesday, tho 14th Inst., the
city of San Francisco was thrown
into great excitement, occasioned by
James I. Casey shooting James King
of Wm. Wo glean tho following
synopsis from tho Marysvillo Daily
California Express, Extra, of May
15th: A communication appeared In
tho Sunday Times, signed " Cnllhan,"
to which Mr. Thomas S. King, brother
of Jamus, took exception nnd called
upon Mr. Casey to ascertain tho au
thor. This, Mr. Casey refused to give,
as tho author was tin old man of n
family; thnt he, Casey, was willing to
bo responsible for tho article. Several
interviews took place, Mr. King de
manding tho tinmo oC tho nuthor nnd
Mr. Casey refusing to givo it, when an
editorial nppenred in tho " Itullctin,"
Mr. King's papor, using offensivo Ian.
guago towards Mr. Casey.
Mr. Casey then called on Mr. King
and informed him that ho did not al
low him to do so, to which Mr. King
replied, ho would do ho when ho might
seo proper, nnd told Mr. Casey to leave
his odicc. A short timo afterwards,
nt tho corner of Washington and Mbnt-
I gomory streets, Mr. Casey seeing James
King of Wm. crossing tlio struct, call
ed out: " Jnmcs King of Wm. nro youl
armed I draw and defend yourself."
Air. King folded his arms nnd asked,
" are you in earnest l" " Yes," says
Casey, " draw nnd defend yourself."
King dropped his urms and mado n
motion as if to draw his weapon.
Casey raised and fired ono shot from
n navy slzo rovolvor, which look effect
in Mr. King's left broast. Ho ex
claimed "Ohl oh! I am shot!" Casey
was Immediately arrested by Deputy
Sheriff ISrown, and conducted to pris
on. A great rush was mado by an ex.
cited crowd to obtain Iho prisonor, nnd
crios of "hang him I hang him!" wero
heard in all in nil ilirjciiuns. It is et.
timated tlmt 10,000 persons woro col
lected on tho occasion, and several
persons speaking nt tho simio timo,
urging tho necessity of summary steps
to punish tho assailant by "lynch law"
Somo cried out, " Whero is Coral
Down on such justice; let us hang1
hira !" A proposition was finally made
to rotiro for tho purposo of organiza
tion and to return at 0 o'clock to tho
Tho prison was guarded by tho Po
lice, City Guards, San Francisco Iliues,
Wallaco Guards and tho SliorilT'a force.
Nothing further up to latest dates
Uut littlo hopes were entertained for
tlio recovery of Mr. King. The wound
was produced by tho ball entoring the
body ubovo tho left nipple of tho breast,
passing slightly upwards, and camo
out at tho back, uoar tho junction of

was much easier nnd hopes uero c.itoi
