The little village of Stanton, Chilton county, is in a state of groat excitement. The murder of Mrs. Jessie Rucker, Thursday night, has been avenged. Yesterday morning the dead body of a negro was found riddled with bullets lying near the scene of the dastardly crime, aud another negro suspected is missing. The place where Mrs. Rucker was assaulted and murdered is a lonely spot, and as the unfortunate woman was found dead, there is no way of getting at the details of the horrible crime.
