A Spy Hung.

--Saturday morning last the Vigilance Committee resumed the examination of Dan'l S. E. Starr, who was charged with having written an Abolition book, which we believe, was found in his possession; but as the examination was conducted in secret we only speak from common report. It is understood that he had counsel at this examination. About 3 o'clock P. M. Starr was sent to jail to await a trial before the Circuit Court. But the sequel shows that he will never again appear before an earthly tribunal. Daylight Sunday morning revealed his body dangling from the limb of a tree in or near the revine in the north part of the city. How it got there will probably never be made public. The body was taken down by his relatives and in the afternoon decently interred.--Montgomery (Ala.) Mail
