Execution of negroes. --The Murfreesboro' (N. C.) Citizen states that two of the negroes convicted of being concerned in the murder of Mr. Woodruff, in Northampton county, on the 31st of Decembers last, were hung at Jackson, North Carolina, on Saturday last. One of the murderers was lynched by the excited inhabitants at the time of his arrest. These two, a man and woman, have now paid the penalty for their crime, and the remaining one concerned in the bloody tragedy, a boy about 14 years old, is to have a new trial.
