Desperate Resistance of the Culprit. The Officers Slioot Him in Self Defeuce. The Augusta papers, a few days since, contained a notice of the killing of oud Tom Davis, who wa3 at tne time In the act of escaping with a stolen hone. This was a mistake. The man killed was a some what notorious character of this city, by the of Thomas Wright. The circumstances of his pur suit, capture and death show the desparatlon of the man, and exhibit In a highly creditable light the per severing energy aud determined courage of Orderly Sergeant Hover and Pi-lvate Jones, of the U, a. Po lice, by whom it was accomplished. PREVIOUS CAREER OF WRIGHT. Wright was arrested in March last on suspicion of being the person who set Are to the city about that tune, and was confined in jail for three months. After the expuatlon of ins term of Imprisonment he was again arrested on a eUarge of assaulting, with intent to kill, Mr. Jas. Mcßride of this city, but short ly alter broke jail, from which time nothing was known of uim untill the 26th of July, wheu a guard was sent to arrest him as a Jail breaker. A was seen to leave the house In which he was thought to be concealed, and Sergt. Hover laid lu wait for him an night, but did not succeed. In catching him The next morning the robbery of Mr. O’Couner’a horses was reported. the PURSUIT. When the news of the robbery was brought to offi cer Hover, at the office of the U. 3. Police, he sprung from his bed with the words, “That is Tom Wright!” Bui a few moments were necessary to prepare for the pursuit—starting npon horseback with a single assistant, Joshua Jones, an enlisted man of the 30th klaiue Vols., Hover had made eightecu miles upon the Augusta Road before sundown. The next moralug he wa9 within a mile and a half ot Sisters’ Ferry. The thorough acquaintance of the U. S. Po lice with localities in and around Savannah and their habitues enabled the officers to calculate with a great degree of certainty upon finding some trace of the stol en property at Gay lot’s, nearsisteis’ Ferry. The event justified their suspicion. One of the stolen ani mals had been traded off by the thelves for a buggy and harness at Gaylor’s and had been left behind, the fugitives pushing on In the buggy with a single horse. Pausing only long enough to give the necessary directions for the return of the recovered horse to the city, the officers were off again, and that night sped eighteen or twenty miles, close upon the heels of the flying horse thieves. Thus It was throughout the chase. At every house along the road the pur suers heard of the thieves. They were told that they had passed some ten or twelve hours before “ A stem chase is a long chase,” thought Serg’t Hover, and with a readiness in expedients which stamps turn as possessing rare natural qualifications for Ills calling of detective officer, he stole a march upon the fugitives, In this manner: From Waynesboro’ to Augusta the railroad IS complete, and running a dally train. At this point, as before, the officers heard of their soon-to-be prizes, some ten hours ahead. The contest between steam and horseflesh Is not a doubtful one, and, without losing a moment, the policemen left their horses and put themselves aboard the cars for Augusta. They arrived at about three o’clock on the afternoon of the 29th of July.— So time was lost In finding a place where they could he in wait for the thieves as they entered the city, which it was Judged they must be rapidly approach ing. They left the town aud came out upon the Sa vannah road, a distance of one and a half miles, taking up a position near a farm house. They bad hot long to wait. the capture At about 6 o’clock In the afternoon, when Hover and Joues had sat by the roadside a short three quarters of an hour, the sound of wheels was heard, and a few moments afterward the long-hunted team appeared lu full sight ahd was at once recognized. As it approached the officers, the well-known figure of the Jail-breaker, Wright, was observed In ihe wag on, and with him another man. The culprits did hot recognize the detectives, however, they drove up unconcernedly. But the sharp “Haiti” of Sergeant Hover and the levelling of two revolvers, with un uilstakeably good aim at the heads of the occupants oi the buggy, brought the train to a sudden stop, bright discovering that he had been cornered drew a revolver and would have fired had It not been for the interposition of his companion In the buggy, who ■wrested the weapon Horn him, rot DEATH OF TOM WRIGHT. The prtooere were then commanded to dismount from the crrlage, which they did. Private Jonas having wested Wrights revolver from him, Sergt Hover ploed his revolver again in his belt, and taking a ope from the buggy was about to bind the arms of Jright. While he was arranging the noose Wright Hrtmg suddenly upon Jones who was stand ing by ©luting, his revolver, when Sergt. Hover again da wing his revolver struck the desperate man aWenti heavy Wows on the head with the larrel of the weapon. Wright stag gered back bleeding profusely and exclaim ed, I’m killedt I’m killed.” At this Juncture the hor» in the buggy took fright and started, when Somrs the companion of Wright, who had stood pasjvely by, went and secured the animal. While priAte Jones went after Somers, Wright again as su|»d a threatening attitude, when Sergt. Hover cqled upon a citizen who had come up, to assist In tying him. As they were about to tie him he sprang Ike a cat upon the officer and seized his re- »lver. Being pretty equally matched In grength, a fierce conflict ensued, each holding on to the weapon—Wright grasping it by the middle and Hover by both ends. Unable to recover the pistol, aid knowing his fate If Wright should succeed In Treating It from him, Sergeant Hover called to Jones, who came running up, to shoot him, which he promptly did, the first shot taking effect In the neck, and the second one entering the left temple, rang ing upwards through the brain, causing|death after a brief struggle. He never spoke after he was shot J Somers, who offered no resistance, was taken to Augusta and turned over to the Provost M*rah<d of the Post. The body of Wright was taken to the city in an ambulance and left in the Dead House, where the usual coroner’s inquest was held. The occurrence took place on the 29th nit, but created no great excitement in Augusta at the time, owing to the late hour when R become known. The officers started from this city on Saturday, the 26th, and returned here on Thursday evening, having been seven days absent. Sergeant Hover Is Orderly Sergeant of Cos. H, isth Indiana, and his companion, Private Joshna Jones, Is from Bangor, Me., and be longs to Cos. D, 30th Maine regiment. THE COURTS. DISTRICT PROVOST COURT—BEFORE LIEUT. COL. ROOT. T.
