From the Mariposa Gazette (Mariposa, California, USA) we learn that Harry J. ASKINS was killed by pistol shots, fired by Mrs. H. B. WHITNEY, with whom deceased had been for some time living on terms of intimacy. The Coroner's jury found that ASKINS was shot by Mrs. W., while endeavoring to enter her room through a window. Deceased was from London, Canada West, and was 36 years of age.
