Tragedy in Tennessee. --The Memphis Argus states that a brutal murder was committed week before last, in Gibson county, Tenn. Mr. Patton Woods, an old and respected citizen of that county, while engaged in building a fence in one of his fields, was a approached by two brothers named Henry and Thomas King, between whom and himself hostile feelings had for some time existed. An old quarrel was resumed, which resulted in the brothers, who were armed with clubs, assaulting him in concert. Mr. Woods was felled to the ground, and unable to offer the slightest defence, was so horribly beaten that death almost immediately ensued. The murderers, as soon as they discovered their victim was dead, fled to the woods. The horrible affair becoming known in the neighborhood, the brothers were at once suspected of the murder, and pursued. Henry King was arrested and lodged in jail, but his brother had not been apprehended.

A Secessionist Loses a Legacy. --Henry King, a wealthy resident of Allentown, Pa., died a few weeks since, leaving an estate valued at $300,000. He died childless. He was a brother of T. Butler King, one of the Commissioners of the Confederate States, now in Europe. Mr. King had made a will leaving half of his property to his wife and the other half of his property to his wife and the other half to his brother, but a few weeks before his death, exasperated at the secession sentiments of his brother, he made a new will, leaving most of his property to his wife, and the remainder to charitable purposes.
