Murder and Arson.-We learn that a deed of horrible atrocity was committed in the lower part of Moore county, near the 
line of this county, on Sunday last. The family of Mr. John McKinnon being at church, except a negro girl who was 
preparing to follow them, his house was set on fire and burnt to the ground, the remains of the girl were discovered 
amidst the ruins, and a trunk which contained $250, found in the woods a short distance off broken open and robbed. 
No doubt that the girl was murdered by the incendiary and robber. No discovery has yet been made of the monster.
