Rev. Mr. Oxnard . . .

. . . Congregational Minister at Moline, we learn from the Independent, was aroused about one o’clock last Tuesday morning by some person ringing his door bell. He raised the window, and inquired who was there, when the person at the door discharged a pistol at him, but without effect. Who this person was, or his object is a mystery.
