HOMICIDE iT CIHARROX. The village of Cimarron, 10 miles west of this city, was tho scene of a murder on Saturday night last, trio first homicide that has evti disturbed the quiet of that orderly place. Israel R. McUraw.a well known sheep man, and F. V. Bennett. I wbo keeps a saloon ia Cimarron, were engased iu playing earns at tbo residence ot McGraw. when hoi words ensued over the game ;aud tho lie was given by Ben nett. McGr.nvs.ud that be took the lio from nobody and braced himself for a light. Ho diuu a small pistol and en deavond to shoot Bennett. Tbo pistol contained but two balls, sud Mofiraw failtrt to bring do-.vu tho hammer cu tbo loaded chambers uf tbo pistol, and in the meantime Bsnnett had drawn his pistol a self-cocker, anil tiled three shots, ono shot sinking McGraw in tbo forehead, ono shot iu tbo temple and ono shot iu the in ck. All of the shots wero fatal, ami tho unfurl uuato man espued withouta gioau. McGrj.vfs wife was present and witnessed tbe killing of her husband. Tbe deceased leaves a wife and ouo son a child about four ears old. lie was a well known sheep raier and held a large flock of sheep ill Foole county.

Wo think tbo former fi-. ures a more correct estimate, uaibers of theso cattlo broke into Ibe enclosures of F. C. Ztuiuicnuauu, M. Collar jud A. J. Anthony. They did but little datujze. except breaking dawn soma portions of tbe fences. They ato and destroicd " tons of hiy belonging to Win. A. Elliott seven miles up tbe bottom. One infuria ted steer attempted to enter tho bouse of Mr. Elliott, but that gentleman promptly despatched tbo beast n lib a shot gun. It is supposed tb'tt theso catilo drifted dur ing tbo late storm frnui the north. White some person believo they followed tbe river in (-catch of water. This happens every winter, but uot to tho extent of this winter. Tbe storms haro been mora sevcio and more numerous ibis winter, and cattle have Inkcu a wider range, manv of them coming a diManco of 100 am. 20J miles. There will bceomebsrj walk "rounding up" these herds in tho spiiug. as many small hcrJs havu coao together forming the vast herds roaming !u the bottoms. The conrso of Ibo cattlo was turned west, and we suppose thev will pursue their return march, in search of food and water, which the; will cot hid until after tin) snnw is trone. Maur of these cattle will perish, for they are thin in llesL. iiikghi:ai sxou storm. Sixty feet of snow is reported iu some parts of Minnesota.
