Correspondence of the Middletown Transcript.
Millington, July 7th, 18G9.
Editor of Middletown Transcript,
Dear Sir :—In your paper of July 3,
there appeared an article in reference to
the Queen Anue's <fc Kent Railroad, cred
ited to the Cruinptonian, which is not true.
The contractor, Mr. Stearns, was with the
Board of Directors, and everything before
that meeting was satisfactory both to con
tractors and directors. The work is now and
always has been progressing, and the truck
will be laid to Millington at once, thence
to Suddlcrsville, unu from there to (Jeu
treville with the utmost dispatch. The
road has been detained in its completion
by the tardiness of the parties building the
road from Townsend to Massey's Cross
Roads. The contractor, Mr. Stearns, has
been ready and willing to have the road
completed in time for shipping peaches, it
he could have gotten his material to the
road. Knowing myself of all the business
transactions connected with this road, as 1
have been employed by Mr. Stearns from
•the commencement of the road, I must say
Mr. Stearns acted honorably by all parties
doing business with him. and further, I
W'ould say that tho road, financially, Î3 in
as good a condition os any uncompleted
road on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.

Homicide. —On Monday evening last
an altercation took place at Davis' Cross
Roads, in this county, 11 miles from
»Snow Hill, between Peter C. Corbin and
.Matthias Tatmnn, which resulted iu the
fatal shooting of Corbin by Tatman, death
(Onsuing in 4 iiours after the occurrence.
The circumstances, as near as we can
•gather them, were that both parties had
.been drinking when a quarrel ensued,
which after being made up, Tatman pos
sessed himself of a gun and again accosted
Corbin, shot him without provocation,
lodging the load in his abdomen. Corbin,
.after being shot, struck Tatman several
»times with a stick, it is said, and fought
Jiim until he bccaino exhausted by the loss
of blood. Tatman was lodged in the jail
at Snow Hill on Tuesday morning last.—
