SAD HOMICIDE AT ROME.—Mr. Peter Mooney, policeman in Rome, was decoyed off by a man, under the pretence of making an arrest, and in about 25 minutes was found dead on the track of the Rome Railroad, with his skull fractured by a slung shot.  Mr. Mooney formerly resided in this place; was a son of Jacob Mooney, deceased.  He leaves a wife and one child and many friends to mourn his sad death.  I understand that a desperado by the name of Jones, from Texas, has been arrested on suspicion.
