Murder.

--Last winter, George Kerce, an old man, and his son, living near Isabella, Worth county, Ga., suddenly disappeared, and were supposed by some to have gone over to the Yankees. A few weeks since one of his sons, serving in the 14th Georgia regiment, went home on furlough, and determined to investigate the matter. After a long search he found the bodies of his father and brother lying near a creek with their throats cut. The bodies were in a remarkable state of preservation. A gang of fifteen persons have been arrested for the murder.
