MURDER - A horrible murder was committed near Centreville, Georgia, about the middle of April, by a man named B. W. Murdock, who some three years since kept an oyster cellar in New York.  It seems that, in company with his victim, whose name was Thurmond and who assisted him in the enterprise, he ran away from his creditors in Athens, Georgia.  When they arrived near Centreville, they encamped for the night, and have the horrible deed was perpetrated, for the sake of about $100 which Thurmond had with him.  The body was found burned near a log, Murdock pursued, and a bloody hatchet found in his trunk, the blade also covered with clay similar to that where the grave wsa dug.  He has been committed for trial.
