Fort Smith, Arkansas, Oct., 4. -- The overland mail, from San Francisco September 14th, arrived here last night with five passengers. Everything is reported quiet along the route. The names of the men recently killed by a party of Mexicans at Holandsville Station, near Los Angeles, the circumstances of which were previously reported, are J. T. Williams, late of Milwaukee, and G. W. Langley, of Hobson, Licking county, Ohio. It did not appear that robbery was the object of the murderers, for nothing was carried from the premises. The unfortunate men were in the service of the mail company at the time the deed was committed. [Illinois State Democrat, Wed. Oct. 10, 1860 - Submitted by Candi Horton]
