(From the Clifton Press, last week) Last Friday night there occurred one of the most shameful pieces of barbarism which we have had occasion to chronicle in some time. A large party of men and boys from this place and Orleans, went to the residence of Mr. CHAPMAN and proceeded to give that genial old gentleman and his bride, an old fashioned "horning". The details of the disgraceful affair we will not relate. But suffice it to say that all who were in any way connected with the matter, deserve the censure of the community, and a good dose of legal suasion would do them good.
