Attempted Assassination. Buchanan Banner. Monday morning, a few moments after 11 o'clock, as Mr. W. J. Reeves, of Bremen, was on his way home, from his mill, and just after crossing a fence in the field, was fired upon by an assassin, who was concealed in a thicket only a few feet from the trail in which Mr. Reeves was wlaking. He was fortunately unhurt, and turned quickly, fired with shot-gun at the assassin, but being excited missed him. Mr. Cheney and others went back with Mr. Reeves to the place where the shooting was done, and found that every arrangement had been amde for concealment, and that a narrow trail through the brush had been cut from the place of concealment to where Mr. Reeves had to cross the fence and to the path he was walking in, which was only eleven steps. Tuesday Mr. Reeves swore out a warrant for Mr. John Cash, but the sheriff failed to find him.
