The Union City Herald of the 12th says that a fiendish outrage was committed upon the person of Miss Paralee Jarrett on Monday Morning , about 3 miles from Huntingdon, by two men, supposed to be Irishmen. Miss Jarrett had gone to a distance of two or three hundred yards from the house of her brother-in-law, A H Merritt, where she resides, when she discovered a strange man of sinister appearance near her. As the stranger commenced to get down from the fence, she turned and fled toward the house when she was immediately seized by another who rose from his concealment behind a log. The ruffian then choked her until she was insensible, threatening her many times with a drawn pistol if she made any outcry When her consciousness returned, the villains, their hellish purpose having been accomplished, left her a short distance and were making their escape. The Sheriff and a posse started after the scoundrels, but at last accounts their search was fruitless.
