The Harrlabrjrg cortespondenl of the

of a barbnrous murder which was comtnitled
near that plnco on the tltti insl I
MOST ATROCIOUS MURDER IN
Out town was thrown into a high degree
of excitement to day by intelligence of a
most unparalleled murder committed in this
neighborhood, in broad day light) this
morning. A young man named Pattimcr,
who resided with his parents nbout 2 1-2
miles fium this place, near the Joneo town
Road, rame into town after breakeast, with
marketing, ntid ufter disposing of the same
returned home about 11 o'clock, and on
entering the House found his father, who
is aged about 72 years, lying just inside the
door, Ills head cruelly bruised and mangled,
but not quite dead. Ho spoke to him and
received for reply, 'what is this you are
doing to me,' or to that effect (in German.)
Die son (mistered him up, but ho was too
far gone to give any account of the diaboli
cat deed, and soon expired. But what
was Ilia horror of tho son upon looking in
a more obscure part of the Chamber, when
hp beheld his mother, lying dead upon the
floor, her head litlerdly cleft in pieces and
her brains scattered over the apartment!
The fiend, or fiends, who perpetrated tho
deed, must have been surprised in the
midst of their hellish purpose, by the ar
rival ot tuo son, anu made meir escape,
Unc ot the neighbors who was going into
town, saw the old man turning his cows
out of the stable shout ten o'clock, and
proceeding met the son returning from
town. The inurdcf therefore must have
been cninmited whilst the son was travelling
the distance of about two miles. The old
man was born in tho house. and had lived
there ull the days of his life, They were
plain frugal people, much respected iy
theit neighbors, and had saved a little
money. The assassins got but about $20
by the act being surprised probably before
they had time to sack the drawers there
being somo gold untouched in the very
place where they found the S20 referred to.

couple of men have been arres'ed near Car

account given by the son, ..who is 6ome
addicted to intemperance, and was a little
disguised this morning, is some what con
tradictory. The old lady was his step
On the 12th the same writer adds:
No certain clue has been obtained as yet
to tho perpetrators of the horrible murder
recorded in my letter of yesterday. Four
persons were arrested on suspicion, but they
were discharged for want of any evidence
against them. The one who is committed
is a man of rather suspicious appearance,
