We have learned from a letter received from the Cherokee Nation that John Walkingstick and George England, traveling together, having dismounted, when remounting their horses the gun of Walkingstick went off, putting the whole load of twelve or fourteen buckshot through the body of England, causing his death immediately.
Walking stick has since been tried and acquitted on the grounds that it was done accidently
