Horrible affair --The Murderer of Lt. Davidson Hung by a Mob.--The Lynchburg Republican of yesterday, has the following particulars of a shocking affair which took place near Fayetteville, Tenn: We have received intelligence from a most reliable gentleman of Tennessee, who knows the fact, that Joseph G. Taylor, who killed Lieut. Davidson in this city several months and was discharged by an Examining Court, on the ground that three terms of the Court had passed and the Commonwealth was not prepared for trial, was hung on the evening of the 19th inst., by the friends and neighbors of Lt. Davidson. It seems that Taylor returned to his home, near Fayetteville, in Lincoln county, Tennessee, after his discharge from here, and the people of the neighborhood, of which Lt. D. was also a resident, determined to take the law in their own hands and execute summary vengeance, and at 4 o'clock, on the 19th, the unfortunate man was launched into eternity — the brother of Lt. Davidson
70; Henry Brown, 1878; William Brown, 1881; Judson, 1887; Lucy, 1872; Charles Sumner, 1876; and Ben, an old man; whenever he sees proper to take his freedom. He desires that the remains of his late wife shall be interred in the Congressional Burying Ground, and put in a coffin made of granite, the top to be placed on two granite pins, one inch in diameter, and one inch in height.--So that they may be placed in a fire proof building to be erected in the southeast end of the garden, which is to hold the stereotype plates of the Congressional Globe. He directs that his body be disposed of in the same manner, as also all the children who might die before him. George W Jones, of Fayetteville, Tenn; Samuel T Williams, of P G county, Md, and Wright Rived, are nominated as executors, the first of whom is not required to give any security, and the two latter required to bond in the sum of $5,000 each. If either refuse or neglect to act as executor, the next oldest and is appointed.
