of them is in close confinement. John V. Carter,
calling" himself John W. Collins, wns taken a few
days ago, in Lauderdale county, nnd brought to this
placo yesterday, by Messrs. Smith and White. It
seems that Carter and Cook had been a short time

borough, in Scott county, seeking employment us well j
diggers ; that for a week preceding the murder they ,

Johnston, got within ten miles of home, and gave $30
to ride ten miles. Conk with his wife and children,
in Lowndes county, where his property had been pre
viously levied upon by the sheriff, und upon hi re
turn he paid up the execution and released it. Some
of the money he paid the sheriff, has since been idon-
tifiod to ho Rives'. It is unknown what amount of
money Rives had at tho time ho was killed, but it is t
supposed he had about $10,500. Cook, who is prob-,
ably now in Texas, has no doubt the major part of this
sum. From the character Carter gives' him, ho is as i
bad or n worse robber than Jo.hu A. Murrell, now in
tho Penitentiary of Nashville. lie once lived in
Florida, but wns compelled to leave for his crimes.

Perilous Situation. During tho late violent gale
and tide, Mrs. Caldwell, a poor woman, who with four
or five children lived m a miserable shanty, at a small
island, near the end of Coney Island, found her little
homo suddenly surrounded with water. Tho galo
soon took away tho roof of her house, and the tide
swept away the house itself.
She despatched her two boys for a boat, and they
with a man came near the snot to take off the woman
and two small children, but tho strength of the wind !
drove them from the shore, and they could not ap-1
proach the island. In this fearful dilemma, the woman 1
tied a wagon to a tree, and herself, children and dog, I
got into the wagon. Every treo around her except
the ono to which tho wagon was tied, was washed up
by the force of tho water, but the little company on
the wagon were thus saved. j

rTUIE shop of the subscriber was broken open on
X tho 23d inst. about one o'clock in the morning,
by a transient person, and several articles taken a
way. I followed and overtook the roue, and look
ing over his bundle for the missing articles I found
the uppers of'13 pairs of women's kid shoes, closed,
lined and bound, which I charged him with stealing.
He denied it, but said I might have them for my
trouble. Ho called his name James Banks, and said
ho was born and brought up in Dover, Dutchess Co.
N. Y. Ho either feigned himself or nctunlly was un
der mental derangement, so much so that I released
him. And now if any person has lost the above men
tioned property, ho can havo tho same by proving his
claim and paying charges.
