Burke Murder Trial

   In conversation with our district Attorney, G. REED Esq., we learned that there will be a bill of indictment presented to to the Grand Jury of this county, at the term of the county County Court to be held on the second Tuesday of August next, charging one Cary, who is now in Jail, with the murder of John Burke, his brother-in-law. We forbear for the present, making public any of the circumstances connected with this bloody tragedy. It is sufficient to say that there will be horror enough detailed on the trial, to satisfy all that portion of the reading public who take delight in tales of blood. We will report the case in full, if possible for us to do so, as the trial progresses.
