"He cared not whether the intervene

of the Massachusetts Emigrant Aid

Death of S. C. Burton.
Mr. Burton, well known as the per
severing Prosecutor in the great Mar
tha 'Washington case, died at his resi
dence in this city yesterday morning,
He had been ill for some time, and his
recovery was not expected by his phys
icians or friends. He met his fate
calmly and uncomplainingly. It has
been suspected that Mr. li. was pois
oned by some one of the desperate
ang implicated in the burning ot the
The Herald says:
"Mr. Button has sacrificed himself
in his Herculean efforts to ferret out
iniquity. Even if it cannot be made
to appear that he was poisoned by the
gang of knaves whose tracks he has
so long followed, it is certain that his
exposures, the dangers he has under
gone, and the excitement he has con
sequently endured, have wrecked as
good a constitution as ever man was
blessed with. We believe, however,
(hat he has fallen by the murderer's
band; that in some way he was poison
ed, although Burton's abstemious hab
its ahhost defied all attempts to give
him deadly drinks. While sick in
ftew York, a glass of wine was sent
to him, with the regards of the land
lady, but as Burton never drank wine
or spires, it was untouched, although
no design was suspected. It turned
out that the landlady did not. send it,
and, moreover, upon an analyzalion it
was found to contain poison enough to
kill three men."
Mr, Burton was well known to many
of our citizens, and his death wilt be
deeply lamented. He possessed those
qualities which endeared him to. all
whose, fortune it was to enjoy nis
friendship. He was a true man. But
he has fallen in the meridian ot life,
while treading in the pth oi duty; and
it must be a consolation to his bereav
ed family to know that his death will
be lamented by good men everywhere.
