lt will be remembered that on Sunday, December ioth, last, the body of a man was found hanging to a tree in Mr. VVhitlark's woods, about two miles west of this city. Tríe body was afterwards identified as that of John Christian Krause, a laborer who had previously worked about this vicinity. An examination of his effects proved him to be a Prussian and a veteran soldier, two medals being found among his belongings presented to him by the King of Prussia for distinguished bravery on the field of battle. Eách has a cut of a crown on one side, and below the crown on one is the letter W., standing for William, and on the other K., standing for Kaiser. On the other side of one there is the coat of arms and the inscription "For True and Loyal Service in Campaign," and the dates 18701871. On the other these words, "God was with us; "To Him be the Honor" and "To the Victorious Army." They are very interesting relies and should be of priceless value to the relatives of the poor soldier who faced the enemies of his country with much more courage than he displayed in the trials of private life.
