From the follo.wing,-it will-be

name ' heads this has met a sat
fate; Mr, "Wilson was a son of
Union A. Wilson, recently de
ceased, of Fayetlcville, and al
his brothers and sisters reside
here now. J, Thorap, Wilson
was a gallant. Confederate sol
dier. Soon after the war he cm
igratcd to Texaswhcrc he mar
ried. For a number of years
he held the office of 'Sheriff of
Palo Pinto, a frontier county
where his well-known courage
as evinced in his capture of out
laws and desperadoes, and in ex
peditions against the Camanche
Indians, had made him hosts of
friends, and no doubt many en
emies, by the hands of some of
which latter he has, probably,
thus untimely been cut off. He
leaves many relatives and friends
in Fayctteville to mourn his sud
den and unexpected death:
Austin, Texas, January 21.
-A bloody and fatal; tragedy
occurred here to-day in the sua
dow of the State-house and un
der the noses of the Governor
and Legislature, Sheriff Wil
son, of Palo Pinto county, and
Marshal Ball, of Sherman, were
in the city, had some misunder
standing and quarreled. Subsc
qucntly Wilson passed Ball on
the 6trcct, and hearing some re
mark let fall by Ball, drew his
pistol and fired two shots. One
struck Ball s watch m his vest
pocket and another carried a
way a finger. Wilson was then
shot in the left breast, and fell
and almost instantly expired.
A ball also struck him in the
right eye. It is 6aid that Wil
son was killed by friends of
Ball. A strangerstanding some
distance off was hit by a bullet
and seriously wounded. The
firing was rapid.

often two days before the first

When storms are retarded, they
arrive often two days later than
indicated in the forecasts,' on

in the interior of the Continent;
they are then violent; for cau
