There being no other person upon the premises she was afraid of the maD, and to get rid of him gave him a jugful of cider. He was then in the yard at the back of the house, and as Mrs. Renouf was handing him the drink, he threw a handful of dust into her eyes, and then knocked her down. She managed to get on to her feet and escape into the house, the man following her., He again knocked her down and endeavoured to force her, but she succeeded in preventing the ac- complishment of his design. Baffled in his intention, he knelt upon her chest, seized her by the hair, and dashed her head violently upon the stone floor, leaving her for dead. Her cries brought assistance to her, and medical aid was tent for from town. Her injuries were found to be so great, that no hope was enter- tained of her recovery, and in the course of the even- j ing she died. The murderer, who is well known, will doubtless be speedily captured. The deceased was pregnant at the time of the dreadful occurrence,
