Horrible Murder.

--A Miss Vaughn, of De Soto county, was outraged a few days since by a negro and afterwards murdered and thrown into Cold Water Creek. After her body was found, the negro was traced to Memphis, when he was demanded of the Federal authorities. Incredible as it may seem, they refused to deliver him up. In reply, they coolly said the negro came to them seeking protection, and he should have it. Thus is a crime of the most horrible character permitted to go unpunished, and other criminals in the same position assured they can outrage with impunity.--Grenada (Miss.) Appeal.
