While his Lordlhip was thus ad- vancing or dodging, Campbell faid, I beg your pardon, my Lord,”-to which my Lord re- plied, well then, deliver me your gun; Campbell faid again, I beg pardon, my Lord, I will de- liver my gun to no man, keep off, or by God I will {hoot you :” after fome farther altercation, which was not heard by any of the by- fianders, Bartleymore came up and faid, for God’s fake, Mr. Camp- bell, deliver up your gun to my Lord ;” to which Campbell replied he would not, for that he had a right to carry a gun; Lord Eg- lingtoun faid, you may have a right to carry a gun, but not upon my lands without my liberty.” Campbell replied, " I alk your pardon,” and llill continuing to retreat, with the gun pointed to Lord Eglingtoun, and his thumb upon the cock, he ltruck his foot againll a {tone and fell backward, and by the force of the fall, the gun flew up, and pafling the per- pendicular, pointed backwards. Lord Eglingtoun feeing him lie on his back, flopped a little, and then moved his left foot, as if in. tending to pals by Campbell's feet ; upon which he raifed himfelf upon his elbow, pointed the gun at Lord Egliugtoun, and fired it into the left fide of his body, not be- ing more three yards dillant.
