    Died - At Marcellus, Onondaga county, on Friday the 31st of May last, Mrs. Margaret ALLEN.
    So strong were the suspicions that she came to her death by poison, that on Tuesday June 4th, her body was dug up, and examined by a number of physicians, who were unanimously of opinion, that the cause of her death was owing to her having taken large quantities of corrosive sublimate; and, from the circumstances, it is suspected that her husband was the person who administered it with a view to take her life. We understand he has been apprehended for the crime.

    [Died] - In this town, on the 5th inst. Mr. Edward FITZGERALD, aged 51. He was found dead in the highway, near his house, a short time after he left it. He is supposed to have died in a fit of epilepsy; a disease to which he had long been subject.

Obadiah BOIES, Coroner, was called to view the body of Mrs. Cindrilla M'CARTHY, wife of Mr. Thomas M'CARTHY, of Truxton, who had that afternoon put an end to her existence, by hanging herself. From the testimony it appeared that she had been at times insane, for a number of years; and had frequently attempted to destroy herself previous to that time. She had been but a few minutes missing, when she was found hanging by a small skein of yarn, in the chamber of her own house, with her feet and legs on the floor.

    We do not recollect ever to have heard of an instance of sudden death, similar to these - two men, but a few miles distant from each other, and nearly at the same instant, took their departure "for that undiscovered country, from whose bourne no traveller returns," without a moment's warning. - The former was in the vigor of health and manhood - the latter we believe had no other indisposition than the infirmities of age.

There was no other injury done to the house, and its course could not be traced any further. Stephen CRANE, a boy about twelve years of age, son of Mr. John CRANE of this town, who was standing leaning against the door post on the opposite side of the house, was struck, and instantly expired. His hair was singed and the blood was settled round his neck, which were the only marks of violence upon him.

He was attended by three physicians, Messrs. SEARL, OWEN and LYNDE. The disease being violent and obstinate, and of so sudden and fatal termination, and the cause doubtful, they were permitted to open the body. - The result, however, was in some measure inconclusive. Two worms were found in the duodenum near the stomach, and some degree of inflammation, in the same part of the intestine. The deceased was the 10th child and 5th son - was remarkably sprightly and active. His loss is very much lamented by his parents, brothers and sisters, and all others acquainted with him. Thus God disappoints the fondest expectations of parents, especially those who set their hearts on fading earthly objects.
14 Nov 1818

Distressing Event.
    On Sunday evening the 8th instant, a melancholy circumstance happened in Cincinnatus, the particulars of which, as far as we have been able to learn, are as follows: - On that evening, Mr. Arnold THOMAS and his wife were unfortunately drowned, while crossing the Otselic River, in the night. They, together with Mr. BURLINGAME and two young ladies, were returning from the house of God, where they had been to offer to that God, before whose Throne they were so shortly to appear, the pious oblations of their grateful hearts. We are informed that where they crossed, the water was deep, and a great number of loose logs swam on the top, and extended across the river. On these rolling logs boards had been laid, and thus formed a temporary bridge, on which people were in a habit of crossing. The bridge separated, and they were precipitated into the river. Mr. BURLINGAME, with much difficulty, succeeded in saving himself and the young ladies. The deceased were taken out, after remaining in the water about an hour and a half. They were much respected, and have left a family of small children to lament their unfortunate and premature exit.

22 Apr 1819

A remarkable death and deliverance.
    On the fifteenth instant as Mr. Stephen POTTER, his son Allen, and Mr. Barton CAPRON were repairing the floom of Mr. POTTER's saw-mill, in the town of Solon, they considered it necessary to remove a certain stick of timber, and by this removal, the dam suddenly gave way, and carried the floom with it; on which they were at work, by which Mr. POTTER and son were thrown into the current, among the timber. Mr. CAPRON, providentially caught hold of the corner of the mill, and thus was saved. Mr. POTTER was carried the distance of about eighteen rods under the timber and planks, and when on the point of relinquishing all hopes of deliverance; expecting in a few moments to be in eternity, the mass of timber parted over his head and formed a vacancy through which he escaped. His on after about three fourths of an hour was found under the timber (which after floating about twenty-five rods, was stopped by a large tree which lay across the stream) a lifeless corpse. Thus infinite wisdom mark'd the path but sovereign power controlled its force, and restored the father to his family, whilst the son, the blooming youth, aged seventeen years, eight months and nineteen days, in an unexpected hour was taken out of time into eternity.

The evening of her life was as tranquil as the meridian had been virtuous. She had no wish to remain longer - she felt happy in exchanging the unreal pleasures of this world, for the more perfect enjoyments which she confidently anticipated in another. Without a pang she witnessed the ravages which time was making with her mortal part - without fear she beheld the approach of death. No gloomy doubts disturbed her last moments. And when she was fully prepared to obey the summons of God, death
                                "cut the fatal hair;
          "The struggling soul was loos'd, and life 
                dissolv'd on air."

    Col. BENNET held a commission in the army of the revolution. He was early enrolled under the banner which waved with various prospects for a number of years, amidst the perils of our revolution. He was engaged in a number of the bloody contests that signalized our emancipation; and whether the American eagle retired amidst carnage and destruction from a superior force, or triumphed over our oppressors, and waved victory to its followers, and liberty to its country, his hand was always ready to support the pillar of freedom.
    His neighbors and friends, in disposing of his remains, have demonstrated their respect for the man, and those who have broken the shackles of slavery. He was duly interred by his Masonic brethren, with the usual ceremonies of that order.

    Died - In Portland, Chautauque co., on the 14th ult., Miss Elizabeth CAMPBELL, sister to the editor of this paper, aged 42. Almost from her infancy, she had been the subject of a most distressing malady, which had deprived her of all the pleasures of the world, and rendered life gloomy and burdensome. For about 25 years, she had been afflicted with fits of a most violent nature, with which she was often visited three or four times a day; in consequence of which she had frequently experienced very serious accidents. On the 7th ult., in one of these fits, when the family were not present, she fell, with her face and breast into a very hot fire, where she was supposed to have lain about a minute. On being taken from the fire, she immediately recovered from the fit, and for half an hour appeared to suffer the most excruciating agony, when she sunk into a stupor that continued until death kindly relieved her from her misery, and from a world in which she had experienced more than an usual portion of the afflictions that fall to the lot of mortals.

5 Jul 1820

    In Groton, Tompkins county, (N.Y.) on the 1st inst. by suicide, Josiah WETMORE, aged 29 years. The circumstances of his death were shocking; - On account of some domestic trials, he had, for some time previous, intimated an intention to seek a release from them, by taking his own life. He had, for a number of weeks endeavored to drown his troubles by excessive drinking; but this method did not succeed, as it made him more fretful and unfitted him for sustaining his troubles. The idea of leaving the companion of his youth and four helpless children unprovided for and of rushing, uncalled, into the presence of his maker, together with the remonstrances of his friends, were not sufficient to direct him from his awful purpose. He procured a quantity of opium; and, after showing it to his wife and some neighboring women who were at his house, and declaring what he intended to do with it, eat it in their presence. Their attempts to get it from him were in vain. Medical aid was soon obtained, but his resistance prevented them from getting anything down him till it was too late. Awful profaneness mark'd some of the last sentences which he uttered!
