SHOCKING MURDER AND SUICIDE AT SPRING CREEK. [from the spring creek leader.] A murder of a most revolting description, accompanied with the suicide of the perpe trator, occurred at a shanty in Corbett-street, about two o'clock on Friday morning.

The shanty is built of bark and weatherboards, with a room of iron behind, and is divided into three apartments—the bar and two bed rooms.
