     A wretched affair occurred at Shawnee town on Friday.  A Mr. McConnell, living near Shawnee, had some horses stolen.  He tracked them to town and there met a soldier whom he accused of stealing his horses.  The soldier denied it, and some angry words passed between them, when Mr. MConnell drew a revolver and shot the soldier twice, killing him.  He then fled.  McConnell's wife, fearing that the soldiers would do some violence, gathered the stock and property belonging to her husband, and started for this city.  On the road a lot of soldiers overtook her, shot part of the horses and other stock and drove off with the rest.  The woman came to town and reported the matter to military authorities.  Capt. Hill went to Shawnee and arrested nine soldiers, suspected of being concerned in the killing and stealing the stock.  A searching investigation it is hoped with bring all to merited punishment.  The woman presented a woeful appearance when she reached town.   She was covered with blood from the horses shot by her side, and her garments were torn and disordered by the encounter with the soldiers and the walk to town afterwards.
