MURDERS COMMITTED IN CHICAGO SINCE

Chicago, Sept. 1.1, 1872.
Probably, never in tho biitory of any
of the great citiei of the wcit, were there
to many horrible murders committed in
tb tame length of time, at in Chicago
tine tbe great fire of October lut. Sinco
that time crime of every kind hat been
rampant ; and the great number of mur
den murders of tbe most brutal and
coia-Diooaea cnaracter has been to
many, that at last tbe people of this city
have concluded to take ttcpa which, it is
at least hoped, will tend to lessen tho nutn
ber of murders if it does not stop them ul
It would seem that, dating from that aw
ful Monday in October last, when Chi
cago, the pride of tbe west, was almost
swept from the faco of tbe earth when
everything in every direction was being
devoured by the tire monster, Gugori
Peri, an Italian caloon keeper, who, with
out cause or provocation, In cold blood lit
chopped two men to pieces
with a largo cheese knife. Peri was ar
rested, tried, convicted, and lentenced to
be banged. But, through tbe efforts of his
couniel and Iriendi, a iupretdeai was ob
tained and the worthlui life of tbe cold
blooded wretch was prolonged. Ho will

K.ILL1NQ OF OFFICER O'MEARA,
by Charles RafTorty. Tho circumstances
surrounding this caso caused great excite
ment among tho peoplo nt tho tlmo tho
murder was committed ; and though, taken
as a whole, there are no more law abiding
citizent nto bo found in the country than in
this city, had an opportunity been oflorod,
there it no doubt that tho courts would
have boen saved tbo trouble of trying
RaiTorty for hit crime. Tho particulars
of tbe murder nro these :
On Sunday night August 6th, nrtned
with a warrant tworn out by tomo 0110
else, charging RatTcrty And soveral others
with riot, Ofllcor O'Moara wont in
toarcb of RatTclry and his frionds. About
haf-past elovon o'clock, RaiTorty was found
in a saloon on tho south side Ho was ac
costed by tho officer, nnd tbo warrant read
to him. Expressing a willingness to go
along with tho otllcor, bo stooped down as
if to placo his pant legs on tho outsido of
his boots. But instead of to doing, quick
at thought, RatTcrty drow from tho leg of
one of his boots a largo navy revolver,
and In quick succession II rod two shots,
both of which took oiled in Officer O'
Meara's body the tccond ball passing
through hit heart. Haflerty lied, but was
captured tbo next day, and placed in jail.
His trial came off on Monday nnd Tues
day last. Tho jury found him guilty of
murder in tbo first degree, and recom
mended that bo be banged. And every
body tayt amen to their decision.

blooded, and cowardly of all these mur

night, on Division street, on tho west sldo.

THE KILLING OF CALLAHAN,
be an unknown devil in human shape, for
no other offense than that of attempting to
protect bit own child from insult and
cruel treatment. Callahan, with his wife
and child, a little girl of nine or ten years
of age, hnd been tpending tho day with
tome friendt on tbe west tide. Betweon
nine and ten o'clock, tho family, accom
panied by two men, started for home.
When on Division street, near the bridge,
they met two men apparently under
the influenco of liquor. Callahan
leading hit child by the hand, was walk
ing bobind all tho rest of tho party.
Passing all thoso in front, when tho two
ruffians camo up to Callahan and the littlo
girl, one of them pushed tho child so
rudely that had she not had hold of her
father's band tho would certainly have
fallen into the gutter. Angered at tho
treatment of his child, Callahan said to
them, "What did you do that for ?" Tho
words were no sooner spoken than one of
the desperate tconndrels put hit hand into
his inside vest pocket and pulled out a
large knife, and in less timo than
it takes to tell it plunged the blade into
Callahan's heart. The whole affair was
done so quickly that those of tho party in
front could only turn round in time to
catch a glimpse of the blade as it was 1
drawn from poor Callahan's body.
The murderers fled, and up to the pres
ent time have not been arrested. How
ever, tbe matter is in tbe hands of the
police, and is it hoped the guilty
parties will speedily bo caught
and dealt with in a just and summary

THE MIL-STEAD HOMICIDE.
C. K. DIFFKNIIACIIKIt, CIRCUIT TLKRK OF
CASS COUNTY, SHOOTS AND KILL8 W. E.
MIL8TEAD, AN OLD CITIZEN OF THAT
Tho following particulars of tho shoot
ing of W. E. Milstoad by C. F. DIiTod
bacber, at Virginia, last week, is from tho
Virginia 'Jeffersonlan,' of tho Oth Inst. :
"Tho last day of tho Cass county fair,
culminated in a dreadful tragedy, in which
Mr. Ed. Mllttead, ono of tho oldest citizont
of our county, lost his life.
"It appears that on Thursdoy evening
about 6 o'clock, as Mr. Easley und Mr.
Diflenbacbor, of Cass county, nnd Mr.
Russoll ol Menard, wero engaged in con
versation, on tho south-oast corner of tho
amphitheatre, in tho fair ground, Mr.
Mllttead had come up nnd was talking to
a gentleman n tow feet from the parties
above named, whon Diffenbacbcr taw him
and went up to him In a friendly manner,
saying, 'Ed. there is a part of that letter
(roforring to a privato letter tho former
had written to Dr. Snyder) that I wish to
oxplain at I did Dot oxpect it to bo mado
public being a privnto lettor, and was
going on to oxplain it, when Milstead re
torted, 'well, biff, tbo amount of it is, you
wunt to go back on overytbing you said
and done in this matter." Some further
conversation took place, which our in
formant did not hear, when Diffenbacher
said, in reply to somo remark of Mllstcad
'that, Ed, I attrlbuto to your weakness
or your Ignorance'
" At tbis point Mllstcad grabbod Diu'cn
bachor by tho throat and told him, 'if you
sy I am ignorant again I'll mash your
d d face.' Diffonbacber replied that,
'if you ttriko mo I'll defend myself or
words to that effect.
"Mr. Easloy stepped between them,
saying, "gentlemen, for God's snko this
won't do you are both too sensiblo to
fight over this matter."
" A crowd immediately began to gather
around the disputants, so that our reporter
couiu not near too conversation between
them. But Milstead then struck Diffen
bacher in tho face, and followed bim up,
clinching with him. Diffenbacbcr, as far
at we can learn, jerked his right band
looso in doing so, twinging Milstead off
his feet, and then reached for his revolver,
and fired as Milstead was about to fall, or
after be fell.
"The wounded man was Immediately
assisted into the inner rlngand everything
done that could be by Drs. Hubbard and
Snyder. He was afterwards removed to
tho residenco ot A. E. Wyatt, where bit
family toon arrived. He lingered until
4 o'clock this morning when be died. Ho
remained perfectly rational and conscious
up to the last, conversing with friends and
relatives who called upon him.
Diffenbacher, immediately after the un
fortunate occurrence, came to town and
delivered himself up to an officer, who
took him to Beardstown in tbo evening.
"A coroner's jury was summoned, and a

A SERIOUS CHARGE.
WILL THEY EXPLAIN IT?
From the New York Sun.
Among tbo distinguished persona who,
as tho lion. Oake Amos told Colono
McComb on January 26, 1 608, had been
bribed by Ames with Credit Moblllor
stock, the Hon. Henry Wilson, of Mas4n
cuusotts, is now a candidate for Vice
President, and J tunes G. Blaine, Gleuni
W. Scofleld, William D. Kolloy, Henry
L. Dawes und Jamos A. Garfield are
candidates for re-election as members of
tbe House of Representatives. If these
gentlemen havo anything to say in con
tradiction or in explanation of the state
ment of Mr. Ames, they will do well to
say it without delay.
ihe list in wnich tbe names above men
tioned are given was furnished to Colonel
McComb by Ames in connection with a
letter dated at Washington on January
28, in which Ames tells McComb that he
bus "used tbis where it will produce most
good to us I think." In another letter
previously written by Amos to McComb
be makes tbo following statement :
1 ou say 1 must not put too much in

wboro thoy ihould go."
Tbit statement agrees substantially with

to the ultimato termination of my trial
and triumphant vindication of my char

grace and stigma heaped upon me by this
unfortunate affair, but I liavj burno up
with hope and resignation. The press, I
must confess, has in many cases been very
severe upon me, especially tho press of
Lawrence; but whon it is remembered
that Mr. Ruth was connected with ono

that thoy ihould at timet forget tho cour

his life, even before his life was declared a
forfeit. I have boen treated with uniform
kindness sinco I havo been at the Qarnott

mutual affection for each other. My

Tho vlllntro of Poaccdalo was thrown in

A MYSTERY CLEA RED UP.
SHARP TRICK OF A PENSION AOENT.
Tho East T-ennesseo mvsterv. nroduenl
by the recent unaccountablo disuppcaranco
from Sweetwater of Thos. O. Boyd, it was
reportod that ho had bcon murdered by
flvo masked men, and bis body afterward
hurried. Tho Knoxvillo 'Chronicle' says
further investigation rovcals tho killing
story to bo a fraud, nnd that Boyd, who Is
a government defaulter to tho amount of
fciuu.uuo, lias quietly loft the country.
Iloyd was a pension agent. Tho 'Chron
icle' says : The amount of money involved
in tho frauds perpetrated by Boyd against
the government exceed $100,000, extend
ing over a term of years. Somo of them
aro of the most barefaced character and
succeeded from their very boldness. As an
instance we win mention the cae orSamuel
Elliott, whom Boyd represented as a mem.
ber of Bryson's independent command,
killed in a tkirmish on Cocoa Creek du
ring tbe war, in behalf of whoso orphan (?)
children, six in number, he collected over
$2100 in pensions, back pay and bounty.
On Monday Elliott walked" into tbe pen

to hear of his death. So far from being
dead he bad never run tbe risk of beine
