A diabolical murder w as committed
j Watauga county, on last Wednes
day night. A gentleman was travel
ing through the comity collecting
money, and stopping at the house of a
lady, desired to deposit a sum of
money with her the amount of
which we are not informed. At first
she refused, but yielding to the per
suasion of two hul'.es w ho w ere pros"
ent, she tinally consented, and the
gentleman went on his way. Mis
trusting something from the zeal man
ifested by the two unknown ladies, he
resolved to return. On entering the
house he w;is shown to his roo 11 up
stairs and he retired without asking
for the money entrusted to the lady's
keeping. During the night he was
aroused by the screams of a woman.
Hurriedly he ran down stairs to her
rescue, if possible, but was met at the
foot of the stairway by two men,
whom he instantly shot, recognizing
them as robbers. On investigation it
was found that they were the same
ladies that were there in the evening,
w ho influenced the money deposit,
attired in gentlemen's clothing and
who had in their evil design murdered
this inot'.'eiisive lady to obtain the
money in her possession. Hickory

after an absence of two years, had
me to the house of Mr. UjiiiI.o. i.i

a pistol shot had been heard at thej

U,ut ,rt or ,he county, wl,i,h ..y th,
w ay is near where the notorious Hen-

threats of lynching indulged in. Even
Forrest's counsel, C H. Kimball, of
this city, was threat n d viih .iolcnce
if he dared defend so guilty a murder

with being accessory to the murder,
but no evidence being found against

terwards taken from his homo at mid
night by a pretended officer and when
about to be delivered to a mob, barely
uccetsled, knife in haml, in making
his escape, thank, to the g
upon w hich he sat. Such a state of
terrorism was kept up that the For-
rests and Hambo's were compelled
through fear of their lives to leave the
neighborhood. The trial of Forest
came off at the last June term of court
in this conntv. nnd. thomrh nhlv de-
