Deed. —The Mountain Senti mil of the 9th is responsible for the following ; We learn from a reliable source, and one which wo cannot doubt, eircum- ! stances which tend to show that a revol ting tragedy has been committed. On the— ultimo the almost nude body of' a dead iinn was discovered upon t' e : l>!ue Mountains. The body was lnsli- ; ed to a tree, his hands tied behind him, his throat cut from ear-to-ear, both ears cut off and pinned to the tree above his head. The body bore marks upon it, as it had been whipped with a cat-o' nine-tails, and was far advanced in a state of putrefaction. Close beside were prints of a shod horso. Pinned to the tree was a piece of paper on which some thing had been written, but tbc writing was so obliterated that no information could be gained from it. These were all the evidences that could be found. Nothing, whatever, could be found to identify who he was. Everything con nected goes to show that a dire revenge has been taken, and a most horrible butchery committed. We may be able to give more definite information in our next. W. G.
