2nd January 1813.
Our Huddersfield Correspondent under the date of the 31st ult. says:—
"A most diabolical and daring circumstance transpired here
last Monday evening.—As Mr. Joseph Mellor, of Dungeon, near this town, clothdresser, was passing through his own yard, a pistol was fired at him, the contents of which passed him, and lodged in
the wall. Mellor is one of the persons subpoenaed to appear at York in the case of the late Mr. Horsfall's murder."
