I desire to have ($50) fifty dollars each paid out of the final proceeds of my father's estate to the following named persons, to wit: To Allen Hammond, Esq., of Rockville, Tolland County, Conn., or to George Kellogg, Esq., former agent of the New England Company at that place, for the use and benefit of that company.

Frightful wife murder. --A horrible case of wife murder occurred in Summit county, Ohio, on Wednesday last. It appears that a man named Cash, having had some difficulty with his wife, loaded a musket with grape or pistol balls, and concealing himself in the corner of a field, near which he knew she must soon have occasion to pass, he waited for her, and as she came up levelled the weapon at her, lodging the contents in her body. The unfortunate woman ran a few steps and fell, expiring immediately. A crowd soon collected, who pursued the murderer. Just as they came up with him he fired a second time, but without doing any injury — the charge passing over the heads of his pursuers. Immediately after the musket was discharged the last time, he received a blow on the head with a stone, which felled him to the earth; after which he was seized and secured. He was then lodged in jail, and will no doubt expiate his crime on the gallows.--Wheeling Union.
