An Outrageous Murder
--We learn by a gentleman just arrived from Hartford
, in Ohio county
, says the Louisville
, of the 12th inst, that Netta and his company, of Whippoorwill bridge burning notoriety, reached that place Saturday night. On Sunday morning he took seven of his men and went to the residence of Isaac Morton
, in the town, to arrest his son William.
said he would not be arrested, whereupon Netta ordered his men to shoot him, which they did. Morton
fell, pierced by six bullets, and died immediately.
Before the order to fire could he obeyed, Morton
drew a pistol and shot Netta, but unfortunately the ball, passing through his hand, which was raised, and entering the side of his breast, struck a rib and glanced around.
's only offence was Southern sympathy.
This Netta is an unmitigated villain, and if he does not "hear a charmed life" he will soon fall before some chosen wrath.
