A tragedy. --The particulars of the tragedy at Snow Hill, N. C., as we learn from the Goldsboro' Bulletin, of the 30th ult., are as follows: H. F. McDugall, an attorney, residing at Snow Hill, but formerly of Sampson county, was murdered at the former place last Saturday. We understand that McDugall and a man by the name of Ellas Carr had a difficulty about some private business, which finally came to blows. While Carr and McDugall were engaged a man standing by, whose name is Alexander Rasberry, drew a pistol and shot McDugall in the back. No words had passed between McDugall and Rasberry. After Rasberry had shot McDugall, and after the combatants had been separated, Carr drew a pistol and shot McDugall in the head. McDugall survived until Sunday morning, when he died. An inquest was held over the body. The jury decided that either wound would have proved fatal. Carr and Rasberry were allowed to escape, and are now at large.
