On Monday night last a human being' eame to an untimely end, the details of winch appear to be as follows; It ace ma that ft uumber of colored men have lor some time been employed by the W & W Railroad at work up n the track at the depot at Tarboro. On the night in question two of the hands, named Daniel Nixon and Wesley Nixou, became engaged in a controversy over the arrangement of their pallet, tdch toou terminated iu an atfegiy dispute. The passions of both were speedily excited, during the course of which Wesley Nixon snatched a billet of wood and with one blow fractured the bkull ef his riKim-mate, the wound extending from the eye acro-s the temple, being several inches in length. Up to Che latest accounts the wounded man was not dead, b-it the attending phy sicians, Macnair and Joues, pronounced his case hopeless. The u fortunate man, who struck ihe fatal blow, Tras arrested without any trouble on Tuesday morning, and cae ried for examination befora J H M Jackson, when he made a full confession of the whole affair, giving all Utb particulars of the same. In ceuseqnence of the opinion of the physicians, the Jus' ice did uot feel at lihery to bil the accused, aud he was corn mitted to jail to await the action of the Grand Jury at the comiag term of the Su perior Court for the County. We learn thai Daniel Nixou had been down on Grab All ouiloudiy evening, aud when he returned to his quarters was iu a quarelsoine mods; there was no ill will or ennii.y between th-m previous to thi-, and they had come to Tarboro together, aud had lived together, and. were both good work ing meu.
