Lynor law in Princess Anne.

--Tat Walke, a negro, living in Princess Anne county, Va., was hung Friday by an infuriated party, who assembled for that purpose at his residence, near the Court House. The offence, says the Norfolk Argus, was a villainous attempt at personal violence towards a respectable widow lady. It appears that this is the second charge of the kind against the guilty victim.
