The Daily Dispatch: December 7, 1861., [Electronic resource], A
Second Tragedy. (search)
A Second Tragedy. --From the Memphis Appeal, of the 30th ult., we take the following: In our paper of yesterday we copied a dispatch from a St. Louis paper, stating that Judge Milliken, late Postmaster at Paducah, was shot and killed at Mayfield by a man named James Conner, and that the Union men of that place had sent to Paducah, requesting that Gen. Smith should send a Federal force for the purpose of protecting Conner, who had been lodged in jail, from Confederate troops under Major Clay King, who were encamped near Feliciana. Before the Federals had time to advance, King's boys entered Mayfield, took Conner in charge, and started back to Feliciana. A short distance from Mayfield Conner broke loose from the guard, and before he was distant a hundred yards, he fell, riddled by bullets.
