Tragedy in Bedford County.

We learn from the Bedford Gazette that James Rawlins and the Sheirer family, in Juniata township, have been on bad terms. On Tuesday morning Adam Sheirer, aged about eighteen years, passed the Rawlins mansion and was about crossing the foot log, which is reached by a path through Rawlins' lot, when he was met by the latter, who told him that if he came back that way he would kill him. The young man protested, and said that he had never in any way molested him. To this Rawlins assented, but told him his brothers had. When young Sheirer came back on his way home he saw Rawlins at the other end of the foot log armed with a scythe. He again threatened to kill Sheirer if he attempted to cross. He did cross, and just as he stepped off the log Rawlins struck him with the scythe, cutting him across the right shoulder, over the back and in the left side. The wound is said to be a terrible one. Young Sheirer is very corpulent for his age, weighing over two hundred pounds. After the cutting he worked his way to the nearest neighbor where his wounds were attended to.
