By a letter received here u day or two since,
says the Albany linji'ter, we learn that Thos.
E. Westlake, oldest son of Cyrus estlake,
Esq., lato a resident of this city, was hung by
a mob at Cottonwood, Shsta Co., Cal., a
short time since, under the following circum
stances ; Thomas Westlake had an alterca
tion with a young man named John McCool,
aged 25, who had come tn California some four
years previously. Westlake and McCool met
at fosters notel, esuaise ueing on ins nap
from Modoc county to Hollister, where his
mother lives. They drank together soveral
times, and soon had a disagreement, McCool
being reported as saj ing ; " I don't know
whether they arc any re ation to the West
lakes who live in Cottonwood or not, but they
are regular d d scoundrels, " etc., etc., using
strong language, indicating that they were a
terrible set. At last Westlake told McCool
to leave him, and he didn't want to hear any
more talk about the Westlakei; not to como
near him or take a step toward him McCool
answered that he was a mail as well as West
lake.and that he would go toward him (West
lake) twenty-five feet, and proceeded to go
toward Wctl.iko. When he had taken a
couple of steps toward him, Westlake pulled
nut his revolver ami-shot him. tho ball strik
ing at the lower part of the breast-bone, taking,
a downward course after leaving the breast
bone. Westlake was arrested, as it was at
first supposed that the wound would not prove
fatal, Westlake was released ou SfoOO bonds,
after a preliminary examination, when he pro
ceeded on Ins journey. Shortly afte1- McCoole
died. Westlake was rearrested, tried aud
fouad guilty in thn second degree. A new
trial was applied for and granted, when he
was acquitted. The citiens then took the
matter in hand, and before Westlako could
get away they caught and hung him. This is,
in substance, the facts as c gather them from
tho Journal and from the private letter above
alluded to. Whisky seems to have been the
cauie of the double murder.

forbidden by tho stern parents,and he induced
her to elope with him. They left Woodburn

hopes of bliss were dissipated by the unsus

was the only one she had left and that she
was only 14 years old; that sho would not

the young man had been of any account, but
she said he was a worthless, useless, crack
