Mr. Pratt Williams of Madisonville was shot and almost instantly killed at this placo last Tuesday night about 10 o'clock by a young boy of about IS years of age whose name was Booth Dunning. From what we can learn it all originated from that dreadful disastrous stuff "red eye." Mr. Wil liams wasquitea wealthy young man and had many warm friends around tliis place who were shocked to bear of the sad fate that befell him. His remains were interred at the old family graveyard ai Old Petersburg last Wednesday. Young Dunning had his trial before Esq's Long, Brown and Johnson. Hon. R.
