Israel Freeman, a colored man, was murdered in Burlington last Thursday by a Frenchman named Wm. Carbo. They had a dispute about some dime novels, and Freeman started for a basket containing butchering tools when Carbo seized him and they had some blows. Finally, Carbo got Freeman down, and took a hatchet, and cut the top of Freeman's head off. Freeman was a hard character, ugly, and passionate, and had frequently been arrested for drawing weapons upon folks, but Carbo was considered peaceable enough.
