Mention wnt mado in yesterday's
issuo of this paper of the denth of Doug
las B. Davis, n well-known steamboat
clork. Since then wo hnve learned tho
following sad particulars regarding his
death: About ten days ago n horse thief
made nn attempt to steal one of his horses
off his farm, situated about one hundred
mile above Nashville, Tenn., nnd was
caught in the net by Mr. Davis, who in
tended keeping him until the proper au
thorities should arrive. On tho night fol
lowing tho capture of the horse thtof,
Davis had occasion to leave the house and
was accompntned by Mrs. Davis. Thoy
proceeded but n short distance when th
thief suddenly stooped down and drew a
large revolver from his boot leg, which ho
had concealed thero unknown to any one,
and opened a murderous fire on Davis
One of tho shots took effect In hit bowels,
and after 24 hours of Intense suffering,
proved fatal. Immedlato search was
made for tho thief and murderer, who was
overtaken in a few houis, and shot 'down
by a cousin of Mr, Davis. Tho tragic
death of Mr. Davit is to be doplored. He
was just in tho primoof lift), and loved by

him, for his many good traits of head and
