Benjamin F. NORRIS was recently executed in the town of Concord, Iroquois county, Illinois. The particular crime for which he suffered death has not been specified; but a more truly accomplished villain has never before come within the purview of our notice. "Before his execution," says the Chicago American, "confessed he had stolen a great number of horses, had assisted in setting fire to a bank, and the Pearl Street House in Cincinnati, had been confined in the Ohio Penitentiary, had shot four men in Ohio, and knocked down and robbed a man in Cincinnati, and had been concerned in other crimes with certain individuals, whose names it would not, perhaps, be proper to mention."
