COURT NEWS.

Our District Court adjourned today. The cases tried this week have been of minor importance. BALLEW’s case was continued.

Seven prisoners, of whom four are still at large, escaped from the jail at this place last Sunday. It is supposed they had assistance from the outside. The names of those at large are Henry BOWIE, Thomas BUIE, James CLARK, and ______ [sic] ROBERTSON. The first two had been tried and sentenced for seven years each. CLARK and ROBERTSON, charged with horse stealing, had not had their trial. Immediately after escaping, CLARK mounted a horse, which, with some others was hitched near the jail, and when last heard from was pushing towards Dallas. He is said to be a very bad character.

We learn that a man buy the name of JASPER was frightfully cut up with a knife, a few nights ago at Pilot Grove in Grayson county, by some party or parties whose names we have not learned.

THE ASSASSIN AGAIN AT WORK.

Another most dastardly attempt to assassinate the editor of this paper was made on Thursday the 7th inst., at about 8 o’clock at night. The assassin had concealed himself in a corner of the fence south-east of the house, and fired the first shot at a distance of twelve or fourteen paces. He then mounted his horse, fired two more shots in rapid succession, wheeled and galloped off in the direction of the woods, distant about two hundred yards south-west. Before the editor could enter the house and return to the yard with a double barrel shot gun, the scoundrel was out of reach and lost to view in the darkness of the night. Pursuit was instituted a few moments afterwards by Sheriff BUSH with a small squad of armed men, but we are sorry to say that it was unsuccessful. The first shot fired, which could not have missed its aim more than a few inches, entered the house at the south end, and passed through the right leg of the mantle piece, just six inches below the head of a little child asleep on a lounge. Judging from its size and appearance it was fired from a dragoon six. The guilty author of this most infamous and unprovoked outrage is now a fugitive from justice.

The notorious Joe PARKER was brought to town last Saturday evening and lodged in our county jail where he now is. Five or six murders of tolerably recent occurrence are said to have been committed by him, among them the murder of Mr. PEACOCK of Grayson county and Mrs. PENDLETON, of Hunt. Capiases from both these counties have been served upon him since his capture. Joe’s wounds are not considered mortal.

A report has reached town that Billy GRAVES, said to have been shot when Joe PARKER was captured died from the effects of his wounds. Another story is current that he was not seriously hurt. We hardly know which story to credit, but think it probable that he was not killed.
