--On Thursday night, near Powhatan Station, on the Richmond and Danville Railroad, while Mr. Joseph Williams, a respectable farmer, was sitting at his supper, a shot was fired through the window at him, the ball penetrating his back and causing his instant death. The ball passed entirely through his body and broke some of the crockery on the table. His burn was burnt two or three weeks ago, and it is supposed that the same person who committed that act followed the crime by the murder of the owner.
