Murder ot Winfield S. Plummer.
On of last
week a sad and latal affray oc
curred at the residence of Ller
riman Plumtuer, Esq., near the
village of Rutland, in this
county, in which Winfield S.
Plummer was murdered by a
colored man by the name of
Luke Powers. The facts as
near as we can gather them
are as follows: Mr. W. S. Plum
mer had this colored man liv
ing on the farm, which he con
trolled and managed lor his
father, who is somewhat ad
vanced in lite. This Powers
had become obnoxious to the
lamily on account of his per
sistent gambling, and other
misdemeanors on the premises
bud Mr. P. had ordered him to
leave the place, which Ihe col
ored man refused to do until he
should have received a small
amount of money due him
from Mr. P. On that evening
he called at the house and de
manded a settlement, in the
midst of which some high
words were passed, and Plum
mer ordered the negro from
ihe house. The man started
out, Mr. P. following him out
on the porch, where, provoked
by some expression of the ne
gro, he caught him by the col
lar, and raising a poker with
the other hand, again ordered
him off. At this junction,
the negro stabbed Mr. P. with
some sharp instrument, inflict
ing a wound in the abdomen,
uiiil way between the hip bone,
and the umbilicus, measuring
one inch and quarter in length
when he turned and tUL
