Atrocious murder --On Thursday of last week, says the Suffolk Sun, a most outrageous murder was committed in Sussex county. James Brock, who is said to be a desperado, went to the house of John Travis, one of the most peaceable and quiet men in the community in which he lives, abused the wife of Travis, and then went to the field where Travis was ploughing, and stabbed him to the heart, and he died in a few minutes. Thomas Faison, who was present, attempted to prevent the murder, and was severely cut. Brock was arrested and confined in jail, where he awaits a trial.
