FATAL ACCIDENT - As a man by the name of BRADFORD was going down the Jacksonville hill, in Tuolumne county, with a team on Monday last, the brake-blocks gave way and the wagon passed over him, killing him almost instantly.
FIGHTING FOR PORK - A man named Richard JONES, residing near the Zinc House, 16 miles from Stockton, was arrested on Saturday on complaint of Ernest WAGNER, who charged him with assault and battery. The case grew out of WAGNER's refusal to allow JONE to drive hogs across his land, and JONES gave WAGNER a beating for trying to stampede his hogs. A jury was empanelled before Judge Brush but failed to agree and was discharged. The case comes again up for trial today and we learn that a charge of assault has been preferred against Mrs. JONES.

THE WOUNDED MAN - We paid a visit to the County Hospital yesterday and saw the man, Thomas MURRAY, who was stabbed by B. McMAHON, policeman, on Sunday evening. He is under the care of Dr. LANGDON and that gentleman considers his wounds severe though not serious. MURRAY complains of considerable pain in the wound just below his heart, but seems possessed of a good constitution and is sanguine of recovery. He is an athletic built man, about 34 years of age, weighing about 180 pounds, and is one of the most wiry and perfect formed men we ever saw. He has 3 cuts on his body from the knife, a severe contusion on the head from the same dull instrument, and complains of pain from kicks in the ribs. He has many chances in his favor for recovery, and will probably be out in 3 or 4 weeks.

TRY IT - Bay rum is said to be a sovereign remedy against fleas. Wash or bathe the face, neck and arms, and fleas will all avoid you. Take a dog and bathe him in the same and the fleas all die - the dog, too, perhaps.
