Clinton, Mo., November 1. Special.
Particulars of a terrible tragedy enacted
this morning near Brownington, twelve
miles south of this place, have jnst reached
here, by which. W. J. Terrell, a wealthy
and well known farmer, was inBtactly
killed. Mr. Terrell this morning had his
hnd3 employed digging potatoes, and
sKiong them was his son, aged 17 years.
.Mr. Terrell, going to the field about nine
o'clock, fourd hiB son working with his
eat on, and aftr shaming reques.ed him
to take it off. He refused and an alterca
tion ensued, during which the boy drew a
Tevolver and fired at his father, shooting
Mm in the breast and killing him instant
ly. After committing the terrible deed,
the young patricide fled to the timber in
Grand river bottom, and has not yet been
captured, although a posse i3 in search of
him and escape is impossible. The awful
crime has cast a cloud of gloom over the
entire community, as Mr. Terrell was
highly respected and widely known.

spoke briefly, setting forth the interest of
Connecticut in maintaining a protective
svstem under which, in the twenty Tears
between 18G0 and 1880 she had, increased
her wealth as much as in all the preced
ing years of her history. While fr more
than naif a century the democratic party
had steadily opposed it, therefore every
man who really desired the mamtainence
of the protective tariff whatever his party
affiliations in the past, ought to stand
now by the republican party
while on the other hand, every
man who wished for free trade should vote
with the democrats. The points made in
favor of raaintaing the tariff were warmly
applauded. Again, at Walhngford, he
spoke a few words in the me reim. The
