--A letter in the Frederick (Md.) Union
, dated Central City
, Colorado Territory
, Aug. 8, says:
, a native of Alexandria, Va.
, is running the National Theatre
, having recently brought out a company from the States.
He committed a cold blooded murder on the evening of his arrival, and is now in ‘"durance vile,"’ but ‘"the show goes on," ’ The murdered man was Charley Suites, the proprietor of the ‘"Nigger Minstrels. "’ and a prize fighter.
Suites had given Harrrison a terrible beating some ten months since.
Both spent the winter in ‘"America
,"’ but before leaving had made mutual threats of vengeance.
came back last week, reaching here at 6 o'clock in the evening.
He immediately went into the Theatre, armed himself with a double-barrelled shot gun, and kept watch for Suites.
At 10 o'clock at night, as Suites stood conversing with a friend, Harrison
came out on the balcony of the Theatre, stood within thirty feet of his victim, and fired both barrels, putting thirty six buckshot in the heart of Suites.
There was talk of lynching, but the people have concluded to let the law take its course.
