Last Saturday night about three miles from Trenton, Henry Perkins, colored, shot and killed a colored man named Cross.
Perkins killed another negro at Trenton about 2 years ago by the name of Waller.
No one saw the difficulty on Saturday night, and we were unable to obtain the full particulars of the killing. Cross was shot in the forehead and evidently his death was instantaneous. It is thought now that Perkins is hiding in this city and the officers are making a thorough search for him. It is rumored that he only shows himself at night and it is highly probably that he will be captured if he remains here.
