Watterson, son of Henri "Watteivon
of the Louisville Courier-Journal, at
present residing here, to-night
fatabbed a young woman at his board
It was at first thought that tho
wound was fatal, but an examination
show ed that a rib had stopped the
progress of the knife.
The young woman's name is un
known. For some time exceedingly
friendly relations have existed be
tween the two. Latterly, jealousy
of the woman has caused some sharp
dltlerenees,and yesterday the woman
refused to have anything more to do
This evening lie went to her room
and insisted that she should go out
with him, but she abruptly refused.
At this he became furious, drew a
pocket, knife and begun to slash away
The first blow cut. her wrist pretty
badly, but a bracelet prevented ser
ious injury. The second blow fell in
tho region of the heart, cutting a
gasli about an inch long and appar
ently entering the cuvlty. The
woman bled profusely, and when tho
landlady and the other boarders re
sponded to her cries for help it was
believed she Was fatally injured.
The police were called and Wntter
son was arrested and taken to the
"Station house, where lie Avill remain
for the night.
The physicians are of the opinion
that the woman will not sutler, ser
iously, but had it not been for her
bracelet, forecasted, and tho fact of
tho knife glancing on a rib, she
would have been killed.
After his furious attack on the
woman, and when she had sunk,
bleeding beneath his blows beseemed
for the first time to realize what lie
had been about, and then tried to
stab himself, but was prevented by
those about him.
As yet no complaint lias been filed
by the woman, though Watterson is
locked up on the charge of assault
with intent to kill.

ST. Louis, April 19, A special to
the Post Dispatch from Suradla,
Miss., says: Edwartl Cossur, a
colored man posesfced of considerable
wealth, returned to his homo unex
pecteilly last night and found ltev.
Sidney Hllilur, pastor of the Metiiod
ist church and prinulpul of the
school, at hip home. ot being wit
iHilctl with his explanation, he shot
him in tho head, killing him instantly.
Urt. Webb is irrepressible. In
the school of oxporiciit'c he has prob
ably framed that it is the persistent
man who attains Ids end. Proud-
lion, who injected into our social
philosophy the disturbing axiom,
"property is robbery," (la propiiete,
e'est le vol,) made tliis declaratien:
"If you would impress a general
truth in tho minds of the people, do
not believe tlmt its mere utterance
w ill carry cohviclion. You have to
sound it from the house-ton: vou
have to repeat and reiterate; you
have to strike blow after blow, as
the blacksmith docs, when lie would
shape the iron to his use." This
seems to be the method that our
cold water disciple has adopted.
In another column appears a com
munication from our fellow towns
man's facile pen, in which he ex
plains and justllles the political
methods of tho prohibition party. Tt
has been charged against them as
baseness the strategy they employ
of striking the republican party
where their blows will be most
harmful. Perhaps it lias been a
little weak In republican writers
and speakers insisting that forbear
ance should be extended to their
side because a sympathy is felt for
the end they are laboring to attain.
Mr. Webb opens their eyes to the
weakness of any such claim.
The prohibitionist have set up in
business on; their oTvn account, and
have started in to win: They have
unfolded their banner, marshaled
their forces and commenced a vig
orous campaign. They ask favois
of none, and will extend clemency
to none who belong to a hostile
camp. A mere approval of the' ob
ject they seek, but co-operation with
theirenemies is set down us active
belligerency; such putties will be
treated as foes, until they go over to
the prohibition side and swear
This is about the size of it, and
there is no doubt that our correspon
dent speaks by tho card. And it is
well to bo informed of this fact. We
have so long been' accustomed to
divide the American people Into two
great parties tho republicans and
the democrats und to scout all
small factions greenbackcr, prohi
bitionists und independents as
cranks and malcontents, that most
of us hud closed our eyes to the in
creasing growth of tho cold water
disciples, and nud tailed to recog
nize the truth that they ate loom
ing up in our midst as a third "great
party." When tho southern states
seceded and took up arms against
the country, tho tlrst design of the
government was to treat them as
rebels; but when their power and
determination were made fully
manifest, it was found there wus a
formidable foe to combat, and the
rights of a belligerent were accorded.
iNow that we are given to un
derstand that the few St. John ex
tremists whom we have hitherto
chided and ridiculed, assume an
equal footing, have crossed the
Rubicon, and aro iu the tield with
drums beating andj'olors Hying, the
(iicstiou that comes home to the
business and bosom of every thought
ful republican, Is what conduct we
shull observe towards these im
practicable people, und what arms
we shall useugulnst them? We can
not treat them us political guer
rillas, mere marauders without
nationality und outside of military
law; und It would he weuk general
ship to trust to tho clllcucy of calling
names, or to suppose tlmt they can
bo driven in utter rout by the
advance of a skirmish line. Our
correspondent, with an uuducity
that well becomes his insouciant
demcumor, tells us that tho prohibi
tion party Is "hero to stay." So
mote it be. We accept (lie chal
lenge. As u loyul but chivalrous
republican sheet tho Capital
Jomt.vAi. will do its liest to make
their propinquity interesting, and
