Miss fltnnoil, a cousin of “ Dare ” Bnlllnor, on the night of Sunday, March 29,1871, while abo wan riding homo from church with him and oth ers (the uight “Dave” was shot and killed), wounded by one of the shots from the fenoe ooroor; after a painful illness, she recovered. Jason Hltinore, working in a field adjoining the Henderson place, was, a few days after the murder of “Old Jim" Henderson, shot,—it is supposed by mistake, hisassaiiant supposing him to bo one of the Hendersons, whom Ditmoro re sembled in appearance. Ditmore was hut slight ly wounded, aud eoon recovered. Robb, a workman ou the Henderson place, within a few days of the shooting of Ditmore,—prior thereto, I believe,—was at work in a field on the Henderson farm, when be saw a man, with a blanket oyer bis shoulders, approaching from a few rods distant. Suddenly the man fell, and Robb, aup poeing It was in a fit, ran toward him. Robb had proceeded but a few steps wben be was shot. The wound was not serious, however, and ho soon recovered. Next, one Leadbotter, a workman on the Hen demon place, was shot at while working in a field. Tbeeo shootings, it is supposed, were com mitted by men who wore out gunning after Hendersons, bat who. being dhoovered, or fancy ing they were discovered, by the men shot, pep pered away with intent to kill the men fired at, ■o that the fact of their (the shooter*') lying in wait for the Hendersons might not be divulged. On Sunday, July 28, Allan Baker, a workman at Purdy’s saw-mill, 2 miles east of Carbondale, who, some time since, had a “ fight ll with one of the “ Bullioer boys,** wu in hi* room, about to go to bed, when orach through the window eame a load of bnokshot. Baker happened to bo out of range,—bis shadow cant obliquely upon the window-curtain. It is supposed, misleading iho abootor, who aimed In Uto wrong dtroclion. Dr. Vincent HlnchclifTa was fired at on two sev oral occasions before the night on which bo met bis fate. Capl. Goorgo W, flisnoy wan fired at on no less than throe eovoral occasions before be was mur dered, and, on one of them, was bull/ wounded. Ills assailants then were tho “ Bullinor boys.” Total wounded (shot), 4 ; shot at, 3. Tho marksmanship, it will bo observed, was excellent considering tho disadvantages under which tbo marksmen fired,—at night, at men on horseback, or through windows with the cur tains dropped,—tlio scoro standing: Killed, fi; bit, but not mortally wounded, 4; missed, only 3. WARNED OUT OP TUB COPKTT. John Ilobinson, one of the witnesses against Cagle, indicted for one of tbo shootings at His noy, since Hisney’s murder received an anon ymous written warning that if ho didn't “get,’ 1 his fate would bo like that of Bienoy. Robinson fled to Marion, and avowed bis determination to leave tho county; but tbo Blalo's Attorney placed him under quasi-protcctiou (in fact, tho Stale's Attorney is powerless thoro to protect anybody, and himself is in peril from stray pis tal-sbots auy night, aA bo confessed to me). Allan Drown, who. having had a fight with one of tho “ Bullinor boys, "was shot at, after hav ing disregarded a warning to leave, and who wat suspected of knowing too much about tbo Caglo case, has left. Ho didn't (eel called upon to take further risks of assassination in order that bo might (if ho survived) further Justice by divulging what bo know about tbo murders and murderous assaults. Capt. Hinuoy’o oldest bod, a young man about 21 years of age, sinco (ho munlor of his father has received anonymous epistles threatening bin life unless ho quitted this region; aud, in con* sequence, ho bout word to the State’s Attorney that ho should not appear before (ho (Irand Jury, but was going to Missouri. 110 hue dis appeared, and, it is currently reported, has gone to Missouri, whither Iho rest of the family will soon lolluw him. K. I’. Purdy, a wealthy citizen, in no wise involved in the feuds that have led to the mur ders ami shooting-utrrays, but who owns a uaw- miles east of C’arbondalo and miles from Draiimllo < the thcatro of numerous hloudv encounters), in wl.lcb mill wan employed Allan Jlalior, ou the 3d of Juno last received a letter thiough the Poat-Onico “ warning ” him to dis charge Palter and two other of his employes, named respectively Thomas Crenshaw ana John Anderson. Purdy, who is a reputable, influential man. with plenty of ft lends, wasn't disposed to be frightened so easily, and did not dis charge any of the men. Next, Palter wan shot at through tho window, us detailed above. A few days after, on going to the mill to begin work in the morn ing, Mr. Purdy found tho uniting cut, ami on the In ad-block wore ranged (our charges of powder and four cartridges,—lndicating in grim fashion, i; is supposed, that an equal number of charges and buckshot were in reserve, to bo lodeml; at soon os opportunity presented, in tho vitals of him (Purdy), and tho three mon—liakfr, Cren shaw, and Audoiaon —nhum ho had not dis charged pursuant to notice. About this time, linker prudently took himself out of range, by quitting the region. Throe days after, tho mon employed at Purdy's mill wero at dinner. Their huardiug-hnuso wa*. on tho edgo of a rorn-licld. and, conscious of tiioir peril, but afraid to confess it, tiro men had been, half-Jcstingly. half-snr.ously, referring to tho possibility of shots coming into their midst at tho table, from out the coru-llcld. Thereupon one of them, just to try tho nerves of his fel lows, sprang up, sad, looking toward tno corn field. shouted: “(Jot out of there, you s— — of ah—, or I*ll shoot tho head off you!” To tho astonishment of them all,- a man did at onco get up and get out of that corn-hold, and from with in easy range of the dining-room. Tho workmen armed' themselves with ehot-guns. and pursued; but tho lurking rascal had tho start, and escaped. The story may sound llko those robber-tales that used to send mi to bed shivering with terror when wo woro little folk. But it wan told mo by an eyc-wltnoss, who was one of that dinner party, and who in n well-known, responsible cit izen. 110 is no coward either; but, had his voracity not been vouched for beyond doubt, his manner in tolling it, Ids reluctance to talk about it, aud tho bodho of peril with which it yet in spired him, would have convinced mo ho was tolling tho literal truth. Ooorge Williams, a workman in tho same vicin ity (Who by his ncigblMirs is suspected of know ing something about some of tho murders), has also received uia •• warning,” and is preparing to leave. Besides, not loss than a dozen moo have lately suddenly quitted this part of Willianmin County. Possibly Bomo of them have fled because of their implication in tbo murders. But no man baa gone toward whom suspicion was direct":!, while tboso whom all tho circumstances inculpate are here to-day; aud tbo current opinion in, ttiat those who have gone had received •* warnings," which they do not dare either to commumcato nor disregoid. In addition to ail this, it is matter of current history that Jennings, late 8 tale’s Attorney, re signed his oflioo because of the tiirculs and “ warnings ” received by him. Forster, the edi tor of o now Democratic weekly paper, who, in this Democratic County, last winter dared, m tolerably honest phrase, denounce tho murder ous banditti, aud demand that tho laws bo en forced against them, found it bub unhealthy and unprofitable to remain in this town (Marion), aha suspended publication and loft some time since, leaving the field to oditois, the leading one of whom told me that ‘ 4 tho people mixed up in tho troubles, wore all good citizens and friends of his," wherefore ho (tho editor) ** didn't core to 4 mix up’ In It by talking about it. ” INBXOHABLE JUSTICE VINDICATED. For all tills series of cowordiy, cold-blooded assassinations aod attempts to commit murder, no man has boon haoged ; not ono lias been sent lo tho Penitentiary: ouo, John Bullnier, who was undoubtedly proved guilty, was acquitted by a Williamson County jury on a flimsy alibi; one of the murdereis, "Tom" Bussell, against whom tboevidoucewaa conclusive, was discnaig ed on preliminary examination for ono murder, and suffered to walk out of the Court-room amt ride off by tho vigilant Deputy-Bboriff, who was there in waiting with a warrant for Bussell's arrest for another murder; 44 Jim Norris.” against whom tbo evidence is overwhelming, aud who is under an indictment for murder (one of tbo series), is a relative—cousin, I learn—of Bheriff Norris, of Williamson County, and that worthy official can't bo persuaded to catch Jim : and, when requested by another county olUcial to depute a man, who kuew where that person woe hiding, to take Jim, declined, on tbo ground that nobody hut ho (the Sheriff) could take the blood-stained James! This I loam on tbo very best—ln fact, indisputable—auihoiity; and, when Bheriff Norris takes 44 Jim,” and gives satisfactory assurance that neither Jim nor his 44 friends" will murder any Informants, ho (tho Bheriff) shall have their names. Oaglo, another of tbo parlies implicated in 000 of tbo attempts to murder Hisnoy is now in Jail at Maria, awaiting trial; and, since Burney's murder, tbero is not the slightest prospect of that man’s being convicted, because now there Is no testimony against him. Aud this worthy Casio, during his imprisonment, has amused himself with threats to murder those who pro cared his arrest, as soon as ho gels out! Those—excluding, of course, tho numerous fist-fights and drawing of pistols, eta.—sum up the results thus far of the wars waged by tho Bulliuers. Hendersons, Crains, and their adhe rent*. But tbo campaign is far irum being end ed, and the chiefs and their retainers are liable to go gunning after each oilier, or anybody who “mixes un “ in the trouble, uf any dark night, when only cowardly miscreants, suob as they have proved themselves, have nerve enough to venture on blood-letting. muudeheiih’ auoimi).

The entire dis t&uoe is but 18 miles; but the murderers’ ground is confined to tho Eight-Mile and Western Precincts of Williamson County, and a narrow strip adjoining on tbs west, m Jackson County,the whole embracing Utile more than two and a half Congressional townships. Notwithstanding the biood-and-thuuder accounts to the contrary, it is a very hue agricultural re gion, and has been welt settled for lll.oou or twenty yoara.

LEAJJKUS OF TUB HOSTILE CLAUS—THE BCLLI- Mcn of the latter son wo.ro tho Bullmcrs and tho Ilcndoraons, between whom andSisucy orig inated tbo tend that bae culminated iu this se ries of assassinations. Tho Bulliuor family settled in Williamson County in Itiul. Tbo family then consisted of •• Old Georgo " ftho father), and ” Dave.” Joltffr Monroo, and Emanuel (sons), tho lattormjf whom wore thou young mou. To tbo tribe was added, by marriage, Wesley Council, a brothi-r --ni-law. Thu Bulbnors wore, or gave out that tboy wore, “Union refugees' 1 from McNair County. Tennessee. Tboy brought with them capital and hvo stock to the amount of about $25,000, bought land, and engaged iu cotton growing,—•• Old Go ergo ” also buying up ncai ly tho entire cotton-crop of tbo county, which, at that tune, was ctmsiderablo. They were a big boued, broad-shouldered lot. wonderfully de veloped in muscle, and “ bully -good follows,” except to pooplo who didn't happen to agreo with them. From their history, as re counted to mo by a number of old settlers, 1 should say tbo Bullinors woro most ecroeabJo to those who agreed in all things with them, and remarkably disagreeable to those who iu very small things disagreed with the Ballmers. Thu sunounoing ruugus soon learned that tbo Bulliners bod “sundiu their craws,” wouldn't be “put upon" by any body, and licked unmercifully whoever interfer ed with them. This, ami the fact that they bad money, at otico gave the Ballmers a command ing inlluuiioo in their neighborhood, and they speedily had their clan of retainers, ready to fight tor tho Bulllncru whenever there weren't enough Bullinors to do tho fighting, and moro ready to drink at the BulUuurs' expense whorovor invited. In 1806 the Hendersons came from Tennessee, aud settled in Williamson County, near tno Bullinera, about a mite aud a quarter from what Is now Carteravillo Station, on tbo lailroad between Carbondalo and Marion. Of tbo Hendersons, (boro wore “Old Jim." “ Old Dill," aud “Old Jo," and Jim and Fielding, young moo, sons of “Old Bill, and “Sam" and “ I’ad." sous of “Old Jo," both young moa. “Old Jim" was a fellow of immense stature and herculean strength, aud, besides having moi-t money, was naturally tbe loader. For the rest, the Hender sons, though possessed of a little less money, wore of precisely the s&mo type as tbo Bullmeis, and, In their turn, soou became quite as impor tant people in tbeir neighborhood, and bad quite no many recruits ready to fight at tbeir bidding and to drink at tbeir expense. JICOIHKINO OP lIObTTLITIBa. Of course, tbo neighborhood wa« too small to bold two such families. Not a gro-t while elapsed before some of tbo Bullincrs met Field Henderson at a drinking-shop (“grocery*,” in tbe lingo of Williamson), and, being two or three to one, duly threshed him. About a week afterward, tbo Henderson wbo bod been beaten wont over into a fluid where David Bulliner, Hr.—a brother of “Old Cleorgo" (David, Hr., shortly after returned to Tennessee, and was therefore omitted from tbo euumer*- liou of tbo tribe,)—was at work. Henderson boro with him a brace of loailcd pis tols, and demanded “satisfaction."—want ed to fight It out then and there. David Senior bad small appetite for (bat sort of lighting, aud respectfully declined tbe shootlug roatcb ; whereon Henderson warned bim that be would have to “ get out of this county." A few months after David Souior—“ Old Dave," os bo was called—did got—went back to Tennessee. His return weakened the Bulliner forces by so much as bis fighting abilities counted for, and bostilitiea were not immediately renewed. But the bad blood of tbe Bulllners and tbe Hender sons was roused ; and, with these semi-savages iu this semi-savage locality, bloodleiting was sure to come of It,—which was only a question of time, tor tbo Bulliuers and tbo Hendersons never coaso revenging themselves. StSKET OETB UIXBD OP WITH THE fIOT-LIKEHS. T In .n i.T —W* nun tllb 11Ut.L.1.. r*i.o. In 1809. Biensy, who owned a farm in the neighborhood, had “ a difficulty ” with “ Dave " Buiiiuer relative to 25 bushels of oats which each claimed to have bought of Burton, which was settled by a lawsuit. In the ensuing year, 1870, they quai reled about an account, aud, in tho altercation that ensued, Dave BuUinor charged Bisney with swearing to a lie in tho suit, whereon Bisney struck him on the arm with a spado, cutting a deep gash. Bullinor ran home, aud soon reappeared at Sienev’s house with his father, “Old Ueorgo,” and bis two baolhors, —all armed. Sieuey saw them when sbunt tfb yards distant, sod appeared at the door armed with a Bponoer rule, “Old George,” shouted. “ Here wo come, fi—<l d—n youl to kill you,” and, with tho “boys," advanced at a tun. Bieoey fled to a oorn-lield back of his house, where be was shot in tho leg hv one of tho Bulllnors. “ Old George ” then ordered his bovs to stop lighting, and. it is said, helped Bisney to his bouse, and assisted Bisney s wife to dress the wound. For this, iho Ballmers wore prose cuted, and ftiied fIOO each, and oisuoy was lined a like amount for bluing Dare Uulii nor with the spado. Bisney then brought suit for damages for tho shooting, which war com promised on payment of 9200 by iho BulUoors. This waa tho opening of hostilities between the Bnlliuors and Bisney. Boon,after, Bisney was whipped. In a fist-flghk at Cartcrril/o, between himself aud some of hie friends, and Wcaloy Council (tbo Bulliners* hrotbor-in-lavr) and divert male members of TIIK “CHAIN FA MILT,” which triho appears to bavo been not unlike that of the Bulllnora and Hendersons. 'lho result whereof was, that from thence tho Bulliuors and the Crams wore fast allies: and tho Ciaiun, hav ing been reinforced by brother-in-law Council against Hisney, in their torn woro ready to rein force tho Bulliners against alio Hendersons.— winch they proceeded to do in various instances. About this timo, John Bullinor reduced tho [ircltv girl of tho settlement, who happened to <o a cousin of Tom Kushrll, which led to a uuar rcl, and thereafter Hummcll was to ho reckoned among tho adherents of tho llon-l'TSoiis. THE HOSTILE FACTIONS wero then thus arrayed: On the ono eido, tho Builinera and Crams; on the other, tbo Hender sons, Tom Bussell, and tho Binders, and one William Black, who had also got luii' dup; and from thence lights and broken heads wero the order. Omitting tho long detail of those which has been furnished by everybody boro 1 havo talked with, and tho which fills an impor tant nlaco in tho history of Williamson County, let mo leavo this branch of tho subject. Tho rumpus continued during tho fall and winter of 1873. loading to a number of prosecu tions, which resulted in acquittal or tho impnsi tiou of paltry Hues, until the business grow more serious. ‘OLD dEOIIOU*’ OULLINER WAYLAID AND SICK* On the 23d of December. 1873, “Old Goorgo" Bullinor started from his farm to Carbondaio. On the ho was fired on from a thicket, re ceiving a load of Imckntiot in his side aud Lark, That night bo died, without making any state ment to tho autbontics. But. when ho felt that his hour had como, bo summoned his sous to his bedside, and (so. it is currently behoved hero), communicated to thorn tho names of his murder ers, aud exacted from them au oath to avenge bis death. No warrant wm Issued for hin murderers, wpo ovcr tboy might have been ; nobody wan arrest ed ; tiu effort wan made to bring tbo aseassins to Justice. Tho Ballmers waited.

Louis Globe newspaper, and corre sponded with a fragment found iu ouo of tbo barrels of Ituasoll'a shot-gun. By the evidence of Dr. Vincent IlinchclilTo.tbe Postmaster,it was proved that the only copy of tho Glottc taken at that office was taken bv Bussell's father. But. in the teeth of all this evidence, Bussell was let go; but was mdrciod at the April term of tho Willmmajn County Circuit Court,and,on trial, acquitted by tho Williamson Countv jury. While tho jury was out, a Special Doputy-bhcniT from Jackson County was waiting with a warrant for Bussell s arrest on an indictment for tho muruor ’of “ Old George " Bulliuor, found by tho Grand Jury of Jackson County, und (ho Deputy, who, singularly enough, chanced to bo a friend of lluhsoU'h, por:nitU;d that worthy to walk off. Bussell has not yet been arrested. Nobody in Williamson County tries to arroethim; evidently nobody dares attempt it. This failure of Justice in tbo case of tbo mur derers of ** Old George " and “Davo” Bullmer bet tbo current of public sympathy in their favor, and to day tho tacit sentiment of half Williamson County seean* to bo that, if llio Bulbnors are gmliy of the murders of which they aro suspected, they aro fully justilled in so avenging tbo assassination of their father aud biotbur. BKINronCEMEHTH FOB Tire BCLLINEB9, About the tiiuo of Bussell's escape, word somehow camo from Tennessee that tbo Bullm ors tlioro bad determined that no moro of their family should bo sent homo from William* sou County in wooden overcoats, and soon after there appeared in William* sou County *• Old Dave" Bullinor aud four or live young men, relatives, wbo an nounced that they bad come to help the hoys out with tbo crop, hut each of wbom, it was noticed, boro a double-barreled shot-gun. “OldDaro" soon returned to Tennessee. Of the others, nothing is known. old nr.MDErmoN shot down. Now tbo bloody work began. In May. 1874. •• Old Jim ” Henderson, leader of tbo Henderson faction, was shot down in one of bis Helds, and died about ten days afterward. In bis dying declaration, ho charged John and Monroe Bullmor and Jim Norris, a desperado chum of theirs, with bis murder. John Bulliner and Norris wore indicted. John Bullinor stood trial. His animus towards tbo murdered man was shown, also threats; besides, was tbe dying declaration of Henderson, wbo bo«l every opportunity, in davbgbt, in an open field, to recognize bis assailants, that John Bulbaar was um of them; aud, under the cir cumstances, ifns evident that each of tbo as sailants was guilty of murder in the ilrst degree. But Bulliner set up an alibi, brought friends from Tennessee to prove it, and was triumphantly acquitted. the sheriff's const*, “Jim" Noma, was not arrested. Ho la tbe man that nobody but Sheriff Korns could arrest, and bbunff Korns takes core not to arrest “Jim:" and, when lately in formed where “ Jim ’’ was in biding, near Marion, obstinately refused to deputize men, wbo anew his hiding-place, to airest him. “Jim " doesn’t seem to feel tbo necessity of biding, however, since, on last electiou-day, bo appealed at bis precinct, with a couple of revolv ers In bin belt, and wauled to know wbo was going to arrest him. Almost immediately following tbo murder of “ Did Jim" Henderson was tbo shooting of Dit rooro, who closely resembled one of the Hender sons, and tbo shooting at other of their workmen, noted above. Those persons, shot and shot at, without doubt saw tbeir assailants, and could identify them. But they share in tbo general panic by which alt Williamson and Jackson Counties seem para lyzed, and actually pretend they don’t know wbo bred at them, and that they couldn’t idintify and can't dosenbo tbeir assailants. Next, iho other side bad its turn: vengeance niu executed ou one of the Bulliners' adherent*. Dr. Vincent ilinchcliffe. a worthy citizen, and of a highly-rospectable family, Iluichchffo's testi mony against llussoll baa ahead/ boon noted. But, besides, he arrested. or aided in the arrest, of “Texas Jack,” alius Gordon Clifford, ouq of tho most notorious ruf fians in Williamson County, who was suspected of being an accomplice of Norris’ in the murder of one of the Bulltners. The story, as it runs hero, is, that “Texas Jack” observed, m the heating of Uinehcllffe, that tho right men hud not been arrested for tho IhUlmor murders, and added something indicating that he, “Texas Jack,” know who the guilty parties wore. etc. Thereon IliuohcUife pioduced his revolver, and told “Jack” ho (“Jack”) should have opportunity to tell ou trial something to that effect. '• Toxaa Jack ” was indicted os an accessary, gave bail, and ran away; and it all marked lliuchclillo as the victim of tho anti* iuilliuer faction. After several unsuccessful at* tempts had been made ou Ins life, on the 11th of October, 1574, about midday, while returning fiom u visit to a patient, Dr. HiochdiiTo was shut within 160 yards of his door.—both himself and his horse being instantly killed. On tho prelim iuary examination, witnesses swore they wore clone enough to hoar tho report of the firearms and TUB EXOI.TAITT TILLS OF TKU AS4A&IINS. But those witnesses discreetly avoided identify ing the luurdeier*,— looked tne other way, per haps,—and no pursuit was made. Circumstances pointed strongly to Bam and Field Henderson. They wore indicted, and admitted to ball m 93,000 car A,—ball for murder in the first degree, r " n, '' rT 'heted.—and tbe case le pending, without in* _ ..Jitest prospect of a conviction, since audits the terror that nulwidydaro bunt up evidence, and no witness dare toil what bo knows. RIBNf.T'S TTIIN Sr.TT. Then followed the minder nf r’opl. Oenrco W. fllsiur. whoso •‘troubles *’ with tho BuMmore have been briefly sketched. Hisncv was shot at through the window of his house, about tho uitli of December 1874.—some of the shot (buckshot) striking him in the arm. and inflicting a slight wound. Ho was also, in tho fail of thatyr.ar. fired upon from s fence-corner, as bo went ; to tho barn in tho morning to feed his horses ; 1 or. to be more accurate, ho was not fired upon, but only attempted to be. for tho caps snapped. Tho would-be mmderers took to their heels; but Sidney identified them both, and,on his tonti money, they were indicted, mamely: our Sher iff's cousin, “Jim" Norris, and “Tim ”Ogle, one of Norris’ ruffianly associates. Of course. Norris wasn't caught, and won't bo; but Caglo is in Jail, awaiting bin trial. Disney was a man nf courage; had served with honor as a Captain in an Illinois regiment; and, from IKCC to 1858, was hhenlf of Williamson County. But, in consequence of (heso repeated attempts upon his life and of “ warnings " which he had receiv ed to quit tho country, lie moved to CarbomUle. —expressly, as be stated to numerous of hm friends, to get where ho could feel assured of protection. At Carbondalo be opened a store, ami, with his family, lived in tho same house, which stood at one of the most prominent street corners in Carhoudalo. On the night of the 2--th ult.. between '■) ami 10 o'clock, while a number of the neighboring stores wore yet oi cn, the report of a gun was heard in tho vicinity. As hv common instinct, everybody started for Kisucy's. •• As anon as wo hoaidtho shot," eaij ono of my mfoimants, “wo know that Georje Hisncv was killed ; everybody know it would b*> Hi-uuy'a turn next." Within ten or fifteen minutes, a crowd*" had gathered at Hisney’p. Ulio house is a plain, two-story, frame, with a two-story L reaching hack along tho cross street. The ground-flour room of this L was tho family sitiing-room. the windows of which oren upon a lung pjrch fronting the side walk. All was in darkno-s. Hearing cries and shrieks of the women inside, tho crowd entered. Alight wa> procured, and t hoy beheld Htsnov s-aud in an aim-chair, us he eat when shut, with a lernllo wound, i}(j inches m diameter, in his body. ere help arrived. An exunnuatu-u of tho window showed that the shot—evidently from a shot-gun loaded with slugs and Luc-tabu;—bad been hied through tho porch-whitlow. The wire-gauze hereon was lorn, os was the curtain m-aic. They abo found inside tbo loom Overton Stanley, u farmer pretty well known in tbcso parts, and wen lives in the northern part of Union County, adjoining Jackson and Willliatnsou Counties. BT.*»>XI.V*S STullT, as told at tho inquest, was, that, getting into town at datb, and having to leave early next, morning, bo called to ask Simmy to indorse a nuts for bim (SUnloyj. Sumoy was filled when Stanley knocked, and S.’h daugnter, who came to tbo door, asked who was there. Stanley gave Ins name, and Sisnuy onmo down-s-taira with a light, and l«-t him in. A few minutes after, Stanley stated, the shut was lired from ouinido. Stanley'* story an to eulLtii; was conlirtned bySisuoy’a daughter, v.bn. before tbo shooting, bad again retired and fallen a*locp. It is reported in tho community generally that Stanley and Simiey woro fnonds; and Mr. E. Hindman, a merchant boro, stated that, in a set tlement with Stanley, ho bod olVerod to tako tbo hitter's nolo frith Nnwy’s iti'Jorf fumt. Fur ther, Sieucy was surety for Stanley as adminis trator uf an 01 late. Stanley is well known aa a rough character. Six year* ago his brother was killed at an election by a man named Cosh. Shortly after. Cash was waylaii on the mad and shot dead. Nobody was ever prosecuted for it; m> arrests wero made, but suspicion pointed to Stanley. Next, Sisuuy's lilo having already been attempted, bo would have only come down stairs, ami bo exposed him self to be shot, at call of a friend—or supposed friend. Stanley was such, which woulu have rendered him efficient os a confederate in tbo murder. Then Stanley is reported to have boon harboring “Jim" Norris, jointly indicted with Cagle for tbo attempt on the life of Sumoy. If Coglo woro convicted, it is believed, with appar ent good reason, that ho would tell what bo knows about Norris and tho rout implicated in the murders and eeries of murderous assaults lately committed, in the latter of which be. Ca gle. participated. It is surmised that Cagle had intimated that bo would “ talk" if convicted, and it is niattor of mirmiso whether Norris knew enough about tho Cash murder to threaten Stanley. At all events, none of tbeeo matters were probed by tho Coroner’s Jury ; no lawyer was present to conduct tbo examination; and. on his own statement. Stanley was let go, and. it is report ed. Las left the Statu. No pursuit of Sianoy’s assassins was made, though, that night, ono of thorn, If tbeto woro more than ono, was tracked to a mill near tbo edge of tho town, where evi dently be bad mounted a boiso. Sisnoy's family have movi-d out uf town. Tbo oldest sou. iu consequence of •* warnings ’’ by him received, boa gone to Mineouri to settle,—sending word to tbo State's Attorney that, m consequence uf tlio warnings, ho does nut feel safo, and cannot stay to prusecc.lo anybody. And now no efforts are being made to bring the OBsaseins to justice. JICILDEU or A SIAN WHO KNEW SOMETHING. Sisooy’s remains wore sent to Cramsville for interment on ttiedUtb. William Spence, a middle aged Scotchman, and a rich uiau and of mlluouoo fur this region, kept the chief store there, At it Simmy's friends gathered after the fu neral, while waiting for the train. Con versation naturally turned on Stsuey’s death. Sponce incautiously remtuked to the clTect that, if what ho (Spence) know wero told, aomobody would have to suffer for those things (.the as sausmaiiuuH), and added that it was time they were stopped. Tho next morning Sponce was found dead id his store, with a frightful shotgun wound in his body, and a pistoi-holu in his brain and an other m his heart. Nobody can ho found who will admit that ho knows any thing about it, moru than having hoard tho lepoitof lii conns. Yet there ware people living within KM feet of tho sluro. Wituesses hero, too. woio tomr-stncKcn. Hut, from what little ban developed, tho tjioory Is, that Hponco, who was known to have retired early, was cnlktt, by some "/riant," from his sleeping-room above the store, lie cams down and unlocked tho door.—it was found unlocked, with the key on tho inside,—aud. before ho could open it, was stint through Ow windjow; that, out immediately killing the assassins entered, and with their pistols du mbed the work,—th.» pistols being hold close to ihu head and the heart, as evidenced by the powder-burns. Trunks hi tuo store were broken open, aud au empty pocket-book was dropped near the door; but nothing appears to have been stolen, and tho whole was evidently a ruse, as thieves who go to plunder never begin by waking up a man to be lirst murdered. Nobody has Icon arrested fur the Bponce murder. NOIIODV DAREN UTTER A SUSPICION for fear of mooting hm futu.
