BEVERLY, March 8.-- At "Steven's Cabin," near tbe Pocahontas county line, Ham Collins was shot and killed by Charles Slevin. Slevin heard Collins quarreling with someone, and thought it was his brother, Samuel Slevin. Charley took his Winchester and hurried across the hollow to the scene of the trouble, where he found Collins fighting with Frank Maxwell. He mixed in the fight and shot Collins through the heart, putting another bullet through his brain as he was falling. Slevin has not been arrested, and he is fortified with a party of friends in the mountains.
