Murder in Blooming ton.  From a gentleman who arrived hei-e on the evening express train from Blooming-ton Tuesday, we learn the following particulars of a bloody murder that took place in that city. Jo Hook, an old and well known passenger engineer on theL., IT. A. & C. railway, between 12 and 1 o'clock yesterday stepped into Sam Kerr's boot and shoe shop, a favorite lounging place of his, when laying off at that place. Just after he had entered the shop John McShan approached him and good naturedly asked for a chew of tobacco. Hook pulled out his plug and handed it to McShan, who commenced cutting on it with his knife as though he would take the greater portion of it. Hook observing him exclaimed, "you  p-d son of a b-h you had better take  it all." McShan made a movement toward Hock, when the latter pulled out his revolver and snapped it the first time, but on the second tria it went oft' the ball entering McShan's abdomen just belew the navel. He died in about five minutes afterward-Hook was immediately^ arrested. Yesterday was Hook's day to go south, but Bill Donavan was on the engine in his place. We have given the above as we heard it, and think that the statement can be relied on as near correct as possible^,without an investigation by the proper authorities.  Our informant stated that there was great excitement over the aflTair.  ADAMS EXPRESS.

Williams, of this city, in Southern California, on Sunday last was not unexpected by those who knew hitn intimately, but to the majority of his friendy the news will be shocking. He was a nephew of the eminent occulist, Dr. E. Wil-liaras, of this city, and was associated with him in the profession. He went to California about a year ago for the benefit of his health, at that time badly impaired by a suddenly developed tuberculous disease, to which he finally succumbed, in the raeantime be;aring his severe afflictions with wonderful fortitude and patience. He was in the prime or early manhood, a man nf lie-roic mold, and destined by force of character and a noble ambition to win renown in his profession. Himself and three brothers entered the Union army as privates in an Indiana regiment, and two of them laid down their lives in the service. Dr. Williams was offered promotion, but steadily stuck to hi=: musket till desperately wounded t Gettysburg, after which he was discharged. He then graduated at Indianapolis, came to this city, studied medicine, and graduated at the Miami Medical College, went to Europe and studied the eye there as a "specialty," returned to Cincinnati, and was on the highway to distinction when smitten down by the disease the seeds of which were sown in his system by the hardships and deprivations of army life.  i)r. Williams was a noble type of the Western man—resolute, high-minded, a natural gentleman, whose, personal contact was moral wholesomeness, and whose sudden cutting off in a career of usefulness and honor will be sincerely lamented by all who knew him,  im YOTJ ^.V^ISTT gPICY liJONROE QOUNTY pAPER send for the  BLOOJvmi^G-'roisr coxjiiiiiiii!
