That tho iruarnntco by congress of oqual

MURDER OF THlS'l'lON. MURRAY Me
The Hon. .Murray McConwll, of Jackson

in broad daylight, on thu morning of tho Oth.
The following particular! Here telvgraphed
to tho Chicago Times':
The wlldeU excitement prevailed this morn,
ing by tho startling Intelligence that Gen.
Murray McOonnell, ono of tho most widely
kt:-- wn'intn in the state, nnd ono of tho oldest
und most prominent citizens of tho place, had
been brutally murdered In his own house.
Thousands of oxcltod people Immediately
thronged tho vicinity where the crlmo was
committed. When tfio sad intelligence was
fully con tinned, all the facts that could bo ob
tained woro ascertained within a few min
utes, and eagerly cominutitc-d upon and dis
r used with great cagernesj but nothing
which could bo elicited or surmised could fur
nish an intelligible solution of the manner in
which tho foul deed had been perpetrated, or
who could havo been tho ussnln. The crlmo
certainly is ono of tho boldest und most mys
terious murders of which We havo any rec
