MR. EnIToR: There was a Mr.
Britton killed at Mr. Benjamin
Kelley's Saw mill, on the 22d ult.
He was bearing off lumber from
the saw, and by some means was
jerked on the saw by a plank. He
was horribly mangled, the saw
cutting off one of his arms, and
cutting his body nearly in half ins
two places. He was about50 years
of age. He lived about one hour
and a half, and died. It seems that.
Mr. Kelley has bad luck at his
mill, as his oldest son was recently
killed there, by climbing up oi
the water-wheel, and accidently
falling off. X.
