An outrage of the most extra
ordinary character, was commit
ted at West Springfield, Mass. on
10tl ult. Mr. Aaron Day's two
daughters, the eldest about 12
years, went to bed as usual in a
lower room in the front part ol
the house, very accessible from
the street. The parents slept in
the back. part of the house. About
12 o'clock the girls' room was en
tered, and the eldest taken from
the bed in a sound sleep. She
did not awake till the fellow had
carried her out of the house, when
she found herself in his arms, and
raised a cry of alarm. He spoke
to her in a soothing manner and
charged her to be silent. But she
cried murder, when he grappled
her throat and nearly strangled
her. Mr. Dav bv this time
was alarmed, came out and saw
his daughter approaching him,
she being about two rods distant
from the house. Mr. Day saw
the villain go away, and inigh'
probably have caught him had lie
not been engrossed with tlu; care
of his frightened and almost stran
gled daughter. The Selectmen
of the town have offered a reward
of $500 for the detection of the
villain. A. Y. Sun.
