He had on his person when he left home a ten dollar note which was not on his body when found. A man named Ben Steger and his wife have been arrested, on suspicion of having committed the murder.

To prevent this, he voted to separate from those with whom he had long been united by sacred ties. The entire address was a logical and profound elucidation of the subject announced, and if there was a heart that did not glow more warmly with a love for the South and her institutions, it would not respond to the patriot's boast that his "first, best country ever is at home." After the close of Dr. Smith's address, strong State's-Rights speeches were made by Mr. Newton, of Hanover, Messrs, Randolph. Steger, Tucker and Gordon. The sentiments favoring secession in preference to submission to Black Republican rule, were warmly applauded. Mr. Geo. D. Shell presided over the meeting.
