Murderous Affray

On Sunday night last, Reuben Bean and Rodney Pierce were violently assaulted somewhere in East Haven by two men named Jenkins and Cunningham, and after a good deal of altercation (the full particulars of which we have not learned,) Bean was so badly beaten and bruised by his assailants, that he lived but about three hours. Pierce was not very seriously injured. We learn that the parties engaged in the affray have been arrested, and will no doubt be bro't to justice.
