Murder. --On last Sunday night Mr. Thomas was murdered by a negro man, whose name or owner is not known Mr. Thomas was a good citizen, and was engaged as overseer on Mrs. Oliver Elston's plantation. After supper he and two other gentlemen went into one of the negro houses on the place and found a negro follow, a stranger to the negroes as well as themselves. Mr. Thomas arrested him and after ineffectual efforts to learn who was his owner, attempted to tie him, when the negro stabbed him in the left breast with a large knife, which he had previously conceited about his person. Mr. Thomas died instantly. The murderer made his escape, and is still out.--Talladega (Ga.) Democratic Watchtower, 29th ult.
