Sentenced to be Executed.

--The two negroes who last week attempted to rob and murder Mr. Chas. E. Jones, who lives near the gold mines in Louisa county, Va., and of whose arrest and commitment to jail last Wednesday we gave a brief account, have since that time been tried by the County Court and condemned to be hung. The indignation of the people was greatly excited against them, and at one time it was feared they would be hanged by the populace.
