HOMICIDE IN ILLINOIS
The Illinois Free Trader, published at Ottowa, describes the following outrage, committed at Indian Creek, 16 miles
from that place. Two farmers, James M. PHILLIPS and Lowell MORSE, owned farms side by side, and had been for some
time engaged in a bitter controversy, arising from conflicting claims to a piece of land. PHILLIP'S cattle, on
a certain morning, were found in MORSE'S wheat. --
The latter went with a large mastiff dog to drive them out, and was passing through PHILLIPS'S land. PHILLIPS thereupon
took his rifle, and taking aim either at the dog or his master, shot MORSE through the heart. The act was unobserved
by any one, and PHILLIPS, after returning to his house and putting up his rifle, proceeded to the house of a neighbor,
to whom he communicated what he had done, and afterwards to a justice of the peace, by whom, after examination,
he was committed for trial. MORSE has left a wife and family in Vermont; and PHILLIPS has a family in Illinois.
