nnd camped, by himself, a mile or two

two mules, with a small wagon, and had
some Whiskey to sell. During the night.
we are not informed what took place;
but, very early on Saturday morning, be
was found dead near bis wagon his head
and faee ,most horribly . mutilated his

side out. His vocation was a bad one
but. high way robbery and murder was
infinitely worse., We forbear to mention
further particulars; the good people of
that section of our District, will vindicate
themselves, by making every effort, to
bring to condign punishment, the cruel
and hearties wretch, who could commit a
deed so horrible, for so small a reward on

price of this 4oor man'sTTfe, was a pit""

hut a few dollars. Yet, one bearing the
name and shape of a man, could have the
heart to murder him for it."
Mr. Havner was from Lincoln county
N. C. and leaves, we believe, several sis
ters who were dependent on him for sup
port. He harl about $50 in cash when
last seen, and for which it is supposed he
was murdered. Ho was a sober young
man, about 30 years of age, and had been
engaged as a stiller, for Maj- J-A. Cald?
well, of Ihe county above named. A man
named Lynch, and two negroes have been
arrested on suspicion, as it is said a knife
belonging to the deceased was found on

HORRIBLE.
The N. Y. Star estimates that there
are 2,200 "women of the town" in that
city who openly live by Impure lascivious
practices, and that Ihere are 40.000 sew
ing women, one , haf of whom are com
pelled to resort at times to similar mis
conduct to avoid starvation. Indeed. tb
Rev, Mr. Pease, of the Five Points' Mis
sion, asserts that there are thousands of
widows who sustain life by needle work.
wno are forced once a month to "walk
the streets" in addition; to make up ihe
necessary means of supporting themsel ves
and their children. Instead of sending
"material aid abroad to enlighten the
heathen, ought we not in view of such
facts, to practice the Christian principle
of apply ing charity at home for the remov
al of this worse than heathen degradation.
