Peter Marks

MURDER! -- A boy named Peter Marks, about nine years of age, was found murdered on a road in the woods, in St. Johns' township, Lake county, on the morning of the 8th inst. The perpetrater of this outrage is supposed to be a man of the name of John Minster, his step-father. The circumstances of this case are said to be very aggravating; we therefore forebear comment, as the matter will have to undergo a judicial investigation.
