Two Horrible Murders in Ouachita.

--On Thursday morning, the 5th inst., Samuel and Simeon Williams were foully and deliberately murdered by H. D. W. Cherry and Gen. M. Malone, in the western part of Ouachita, about eighteen miles from this place. Simeon Williams, deputized by the sheriff, and accompanied by his brother had gone to the house of Cherry, with whom Malone was living, to execute a peace warrant issued against Malone, and both were shot dead at the gate. We refrain from giving further particulars at present. The murderers, for whose arrest and lodgment in jail $500 reward is offered by the brothers of the murdered, are still at large,-- Monrot (La,) Intelligencer.
