Changes in the City Council.?Gene ral Schofield made on Saturday the follow ing changes in the composition of the City Council of Richmond: Jefferson. Ward.?Henry P. Clinton ap pointed vice N- M. Lee, removed; John E. Mulford vice Stephen Mason, removed. Madison Ward.?William C. Allen vice James A. Scott, removed; Alexander Sharp vice R. H. Maury, removed. Monroe Ward.?Horace L. Kent vice T. C. Epps, removed; George W. Smith, re appointed. It is stated that other removals and ap pointments are under consideration at headquarters. Messrs. Macfarland, Har vey, Crutcbfield, Clopton, Styll, Taylor, August, Tinsley, and Saunders, have re ceived no information from General Scho field as to their status. The gentlemen appointed aro interested in the prosperity of the city, and of gotfd standing in the community. General Mulford was a well known officer in the Federal army, and be came exceedingly popular with Confede rate soldiers by his courteous conduct as a commissioner of exchange. He is now collector of internal revenue fot the third district of Virginia. Dr. Sharp is the postmaster of the city, and is well known, and respected both as an office-holder and a private citizen. Colonel Clinton was formerly .An officer in the Federal service, and is now a tobacco manufacturer in this city. The other ap pointees are old residents of Richmond, and are too well known to require a word of introduction. For the interests of the city, it is earnestly hoped that they will all ac cept the appointments and enter upon the discharge of their duties as members of the Council with that zeal and attention which their reputation and standing warrant na to expect. The retiring Conncilmen will leave their places in the chamber with the satisfaction of duty performed, having entitled them selves duriDg their term to the esteem and gratitude of their fellow-citizens, whose confidence they have in no respect for feited. Meeting at the Chamber of Commerce. An informal meeting of some of our most prominent merchants and business men was held on Friday evening last to hear the. views of Mr. Buford, President of the Richmond and Danville railroad, and "W. T. Suthorlin, of Danville, on the subject of a railroad connection between Char lotte in North Carolina and Atlanta in Georgia, by the establishment of which, it was argued by these gentlemen, the trade of Richmond would be vastly bene fitted, inasmuch as a through and almost directly straight line from Atlanta to Bal timore, Philadelphia, and New York, via Richmond, would thus be formed. A full description of the line and of the charac ter of the country through which it passes was given, and letters from General Scho field and General Meade were read, ex pressing their conviction that the line would be valuable in a military point of view, and for the transportation of the United States mail, and at the same time tend to advance reconstruction. Mr. Sutherlin drew a picture of the de pressed condition of the trade of Rich mond, and expressed the conviction that if things went on as they are much longer the. manufacture, of tobacco would be almost entirely transferred from Rich mond to northern cities. The diminishing trade and traffic on the Danville road was also alluded to, and it was strongly urged by the speakers that the completion of the project to which they referred was neces sary to the improvement of the business of Richmond. It was shown, too, that this line, in con nection with other lines, would prove the shortest to San Francisco, and that in the winter it would be preferred, as it would not be ice and snow-bound. An interesting discussion ensued, and the subject, as well as all matters bearing on it, were canvassed and discussed until nearly 12 o'clock. * No precise plan of action for carrying out the scheme was proposed, the object of Messrs. Buford and Sutherlin being to introduce the subject w.ith the view to its consideration by our business men. It was agreed, however, that another meet ing, Tinder the auspices of the Qbamber of Commerce, should be held whenever Messrs. Sutherlin. and Buford were pre pared with any specific proposition. Mr. David I. Burr occupied the chair. Postal Affairs.?During the last week of the quarter just past there were received* at the Richmond post-ofi3ce for delivery 30.769 letters. Daring the same reek the value of the stamps cancelled amounted to $896.16' For the month of March 433,671 stamps were cancelled on letters dropped into this office. Rev. J. 0. STiLitf.?This distinguished clergyman.bas recently returned to Rich mond, after his arduous,service as an evan gelist in the Stale of Missouri. He is recovering from a spell of sickness, and is not yet able to preach. His many friends rejpice that he has come among us again, after so long an absence. The Mysterious Murder is Henrico County?I s Qu e ?t-Further Particu lars.?In Saturday's Dispatch we gave the particulars,as far a* could then be learned, of the murder of Emanuel Cross, on the Charles City road, on Thursday bight last. (3d Saturday our reporter attended the inquest, and learned farther particulars-: The body of Cross remained all day Friday at Jordan's Horse-Water, where it was found by Mr. Gathright. Towards night the body was removed to a house near by, formerly occupied by Mr. Tracey, and on Saturday the inquest was held there by Justice Thomas L. Pleasants. The following is a list of the jury empan nelled : Messrs. John W. Gathright, John M Gathright, James H. Crittenden, Sr., James H. Crittenden, Jr., Dudley Wil liams, Berry GordoD, Richard Trueman, W. J. Goodman, W. T. Rawlings, Lewis Bottoms, and Milton Eyler. A close examination of the body was made* when it was found that the skull Was fractuted froin the shot-Wound under the left ear almost to the centre of the forehead. In probing the wound, there were a large number of shot, some ^ wad ding, a piece of the hat, and grains of powder found. The whole appearance of the head indicated that the wound had been made by gnn-shot; that the person who fired Was standing above his victim, and that a severe blow had been dealt upon the head after the shot was fired. Why the blow was given, no one could surmise. Death from the shot must have been instantaneous* as the bands were not j in the least bloody, which would have been the case if he had lived even a few moments, for the first impulse of a wounded man is to feel his wound. The place where the body was found was then examined. No marks of a struggle were found. The jury stated that they had no wit nesses to examine, and then a general dis cussion ensued in regard to the affair from which the following facts were learned, which tended to show that the murder had been committed several miles above where the body was found?some where on the Charles City road^ between Hughes's tavern and Blankinship's shop, and3near Mrs. Eacho's bouse. We stated that Mrs. . Eacbo said that about 9 o'clock on Thursday night she heard some voices near her bouse. The persons seem ed to be excited, and at last one of the voices said i " The road is wide enough, and there is no use of your coming through the field." A few moments afterwards she heard' the report of a gun or pistol. A gentleman living near this lady said that he also heard a shot fired about the same time. . ? ., .A gentleman said that he saw on Friday morning Bpots of blood on the road be tween the two places mentioned, and that he tracked the spots for soine distance, Cross was met comiDg out from town about 8 o'clock Thursday night. Mr. Blankinship and others state that Cross never missed stopping -at his store on his way to or from town, and had stopped twice every day of last week up to the night of his murder. That night he did not stop, but his horse and cart did pass. The horse is known as the best horse that is driven to a charcoal cart in that section, and those who say that ttiey saw it pass say that they could not have been mis After Cross was shot, he either fell or was laid upon the bags of oats, with his feet hanging out in froDt of the cart; lor when his boots were taken off they were filled with water, which had evidently got ten into them when the cart crossed a deep creek a few yards above, where he fell from the cart and was found. From these facts it is conclusive that the man was murdered near where the voices were heard in aogry discussion ; that he was not murdered, for the purpose of robbery '* for though one pocket was turned inside out, a small amount was found upon the body, and the rest of the money shown to have been properly dis posed of by Cross. n It-.was mentioned that Mr. James ii. CrittendeD, Sr., (one of the jurors,) had had a difficulty the week before with a man named Burnett, and that Cross inter fered, and prevented Crittenden from vent ing his wrath npon the latter. By this move Cross displeased Crittenden, and he therefore has incurred some suspicion; with what justice we know not. Farther, the opinion was more gene rally-expressed that the poor fellow was shot while driving in the field of a ciU zen between the places we have several times mentioned merely to avoid a muddy road. This opinion gains credence from the exclamation overheard by Mrs. Eacho and which was so quickly followed by the report of a gun. ,, After fully investigating the facts brought forth, Justice Pleasants gave the case to the jury, who rendered a verdict that the deceased came to his death by a gun shot wound by the hands of some one to them unknown. . , After the inquest, Mr. 1Gath.nght ?? charge of the body, and doubtless had it buried Saturday. . ... The Justice, in dismissing the J ory, told them to be on the alert, and be ready to assemble again if there was need. This is the third mysterious murder in Henrico within the past eighteen months, and the intelligence falls with startling force upon Ihe citizens, while the of Mary Emily Phillips has not been brought to justice, and may be yet at large. Let the authorities of the county take this matter promptly in band, and spare no efforts to trace the crime to its author. If necessary, let a reward be ofiered, as was urged by this paper whe the victim of the Drinker's Farm Murder was first discovered. That Emanuel Cr9*? was a poor boy and a comparative strange is an additional reason for prompt action.
