Murder in Lake County!

We learn from a Lake county correspondent, that, on Monday afternoon last, a few miles from Crown Point, a man by the name of Avery Cross killed an Irishman with a pitch fork handle by striking him on the head. He broke the handle, and continued his blows with the piece left in his hand. Further particulars will be given when received.
