Caitdrb of a AltRPKRKH. On the
5th of October last, at a church in Dog
Tooth precinct, as many of our readers
will remember, a young man named Jas.
Coleman, was shot and killed by another
young man named Julian Pillow.
Pillow was arrested and a preliminary
trail held belore Squires Martin and
Ilutisacker. 'The testimony against Pil
low was ol the strongest kind, and was
held without bail on a charge ot murder
for trial in the Circuit Court. Alter the
preliminary heiriug, Pillow was placed
iu the hands of one of the Constables
lor Dog Tooth, who via to
bring him to Cairo to be
turned over to Slierill Saup. Howevur
it was late in the evening betore the trial
was over, and the constable (we have for
gotten his name) concluded to wait until
the next day before, starting for Cairo
with the prise n,T, and summoned four
men to help guard h'm during the
night. But not withstanding all this
precaution on the part ot the officer,
between one and two o'cluo'-. In the
morning, Pillow was missing, and until
within a tew days ago no trace- of him
could be found. At the time ot the ocs
currenoe It was hinted that i'illow was
allowed to escape, that some ol the guards
being his Irlends and associates they
made no resistance to his departure. A
few days ago Mr. Atherton, who keeps a
tore In Dog Tooth, having been to St.
Louis on buslne's, was returning home
by the steamer Vicksburg and on the
way down ho saw Pillow among the
deck passengers on the boat. Ou arrival
