4) MELANCHOLY AND AWFUL INSTANCE OF SUDDEN DEATH. On Wednesday morning, rumours were afloat that the body of Mr. James Berry, aged about fifty, the respected actuary of the Savings' Bank in this town, had been found lying on the bank near the feeder. Upon making the necessary inquiries we found the melancholy intelligence too true. The deceased, who was a man of very regular habits, after the banking business of the day was concluded usually took an evening stroll, choosing frequently his favourite walk, down Crockherb- town! Bradley-lane, and enjoying the quietude and coolness of the banks ot the feeder. That such was the case on Tues- day evening there can be little doubt, for his body was found on the following morning laying 011 the bank ot the feeder, undisturbed, and his property entirely secure about his person. The following articles were found in his trowsers pockets :—A purse containing 1;8 in gold, half-crown, four three-penny pieces one shilling, a sixpence, a silver snuff-box, two gold seals, attached to a chain of the same material, bunch of keys, silver spectacles, pocket-knife, pocket-comb, and a few piece's of sealing-wax. The friends of the deceased gentleman were apprised of themelancholy occurrence, and the body was conveyed to the Infirmary, there to await the coroner's inquest.
