Murder in Alabama. --A correspondent from Perdido Mills, Florida, writes that an atrocious murder was perpetrated over the Perdido river, in Baldwin county, Alabama, on Tuesday, the 17th. The writer gives the particulars as follows: On Monday a man named Wm. McLeod went to the house of Joseph Bates and insulted Mr. Bates by a somewhat indiscriminate abuse of him and the neighbors generally. He left the house after Bates had in retaliation for the abuse received, bestowed on him many opprobrious epithets. On Tuesday afternoon, having armed himself with a double-barrel shot gun, which he borrowed, he went near Bates's house in company with a brother-in-law, (McMillan,) who having occasion, as is said, for a little ar, was going into the house to procure it, when he was requested by McLeod to de Bates to come out, as he wished to talk to him. Bates went out near to McLeod, some hundred and fifty feet from the house, when the latter demanded why certain names had been app
closing scene at Manassa. It is adapted to guns of all calibres, from-field pieces to ten-inch Columbiads, and its general manufacture is urged by General Huger, the accomplished officer in command at Norfolk. Drawings and pattern shells have been sent to Charleston, Mobile, New Orleans, and Memphis. Lead and its alloys are becoming somewhat scarce and high priced, but fortunately for the country none of these are required in the manufacture of the Read shells. They are composed simply of cast iron, with a light expanding cup of wrought iron — materials which are abundant at every foundry. The inventor, Dr. Read, of Alabama, has liberally placed his invention at the disposal of the Government upon its own terms. He also offers his services whenever they may be desired, in superintending the manufacture of his projectiles. He can in this way render the country a more signal service than by raising a regiment of men, and we hope he will find prompt and full employment.
Prisoners at Washington. --A letter from Washington to a business firm in this city furnishes the names of some of the Southern men confined in the old Capitol building, with a request that they be inserted in the Dispatch. We have already published a full list, but nevertheless comply with the request. The names are Messrs. Fiquet, Walker, and Paulding, from Alabama; Messrs. Branch Eastman. Barrow, and Garrett, of the Oglethorpe Light Infantry, Savannah, Ga.; and Dr. Humphreys, of the 8th Georgia Regiment. The letter further states that the ladies of Washington are doing all in their power to promote the comfort of the prisoners, of whom there are about 80 in all.
