SHOOTING AFFAIR at LA GRANGE -- A correspondent at La Grange,

Frenchman named JIROUDON was shot dead on the evening of that day, a
half mile below town, by a Mr. A. ELLIS, whose wife the deceased had
insulted in an outrageous way, whilst he was intoxicated. It seems
the man ELLIS did the shooting while JIROUDON was in a deep sleep,
firing into his body some 5 or 6 pistol shots. ELLIS then repaired to
La Grange and surrendered himself to the Sheriff. At 9 o'clock in the
evening, of the 17th, nearly all the French residents of La Grange

threatening to take him from the officer and execute summary

BY MAGNETIC TELEGRAPH -- San Francisco, July 23 -- Particulars of the
State Prison Mutiny -- Lieut. Gov. CHELLIS Safe -- Troops in Pursuit
of the Escapes -- List of Escapes -- Mike BRANNAGAN Helps the Guard --
Your reporter left for the State Prison last night at 2 o'clock on
the steamer Clinton, in company with a detachment of 40 mounted men
of Capt. DeMARRITT's Sacramento cavalry; a detachment of Police force
under Chief BURKE, armed and mounted, and about 50 citizens. They
arrived at the Prison at 5 o'clock and found everything quiet and
Governor CHELLIS in his room asleep.
We learned that at 1:45 yesterday, about 20 of the prisoners working
outside in the brick yard, made a break for their guard, ran whooping
around to the gate and on their way entered Lieutenant Governor
CHELLIS' room and seized him, took him to the gate, and demanded that
he order it to be opened. He ordered the guard named MURPHY, who was
armed only with a club, to open it, which he refused to do; but was
finally overpowered and badly beaten about the head.
They then wrenched off the lock and all who wished passed out of this
gate whooping and yelling. They went to the armory and possessed
themselves of all the arms and ammunition, still keeping the
Lieutenant Governor with them. They then passed around towards the
Southern entrance which was commanded by a cannon under the charge of
Capt. WATSON, loaded with 150 minnie balls and grape. The Governor
ordered him not to fire upon them. The gun was fired in the opposite
direction and then spiked. They then threw him and the cannon over a
precipice of 30 feet. The Captain's arm was broken. About 300 were
out at this time. Messengers were dispatched to San Rafael and around
all the country, who headed them off and kept them on the peninsula.
The party with the Governor ran with him 4 miles, and were pursued by
5 horsemen, who were constantly firing upon them. They made a
desperate dash, released the Governor and brought him in.
6 are know to be dead. We have the names of 3:
Oliver GRAY, the Chico robber
30 attempted to escape on the sloop Pike County, but a cannon was
brought to bear on them and they surrendered. Parties were being
brought in until 12 o'clock today, when the roll being called, the
following were missing:
The following were wounded and are in prison:
J. Losano QUINTO
5 of the missing are in the San Raffael jail.
Everything being quiet at the prison, the cavalry did not take their
horses ashore. The Clinton arrived in San Francisco at 10 o'clock.
A.P. STANFORD, upon receiving an order from the Governor, made a
requisition upon Gen. WRIGHT and chartered a steamer and started
forces within 3 hours. The prisoners threaten another outbreak. Mike
BRANNIGAN [spelled 2 ways], R. SCHELL and others, long-term men, made
no efforts to escape. In fact, Mike helped the guard. The 27 now
outside are surrounded by 70 men and will be captured.
