perfect health. At 1 o'clock be awoke with
what was believed to be cramp-colic. The

without effect, and about 2 o'clock thy family
physician was sent for. The doctor stayed
with the patient a good while, and when a?
4 o'clock he left. Colonel Danfortb bad been
id neb relieved and said he thought be wou'd
soon be able to fall asleep. lie remained
<iuiet until about *>? o'clock in the morning,

Colonel Danfortb was about six-y years of
u"?> was a native of Richmond, and received
a i:ood classical education in this city. He
studied medicine for a short time in the oflice
of the late Dr. Mie.ijih Clarke, but never
practiced the probssion. In early manhood
be became clerk in the olhee of Colonel
George Wythe Muuford, then clerk of the
IIodm' of Delegate* of Virginia. In IS.li
Colonel Danfortb was appointed to a clerk
ship in the otlioe of the Mutual Assurance
St c;etv, aud oil the dcith of Mr. Thomas R.
Blair, secretary of the Society, was ap
pointed in his place, and continued to dts
charge the duties ot the position with con
spicuous ability and fidelity until the day of
bi-> death. , . .. _
Colonel Danfortb was a man of sterling
bone-tv of character, and was one of our
purest, best, and most respected citizens. In
addition to a large store of business infor
mation be was a draughtsman of uo ordinary
^k'll and displaved a decided taste for archi
! tecture. He wrote on insurance topics with
ea^-ind vigor, and contributed a very lull
and valuable sketch of the history and ope
rations of the Mutual Assurance Society.

secretary ol the It. L. 1. Blues and captain
of the old Kngle Guard, and during the war

mings that be felt unwell, and was going cfl
somewhat earlier than u<ual ou that account.
It seems thai be was taken ill near the coi
ner of Twch.h and Main street*, and that he
went into the offlce of toll & Rhodes icr
deider* to re-t, and that they gave him a
chair and invited him to sit down in from of
the door, where he could get fresh air,
which it was hoped would remove the dim*
eultv of breathing oi which be complained.
In>tead of taking the chair prollered he went
across the street to one of the stores in the
unfinished Kly Building and sat down on a
truck and rested bis head upon a bench.
P?.-r?ocs passing by notified Policemen Hulce

to bis assistance. Mr. Franklin vainly es
saved to speak to Mr. Walton. Dr. A. b. >
McKae, who was called iu in the emergency,
raised Mr. Franklin's head and seut for a
do-e of brandy, but before the brandy was
received Mr. Franklin give one or two gasps
and died. The city ambulance wa- tele
graphed for, and iu charge of Dr. Brittan ar
rived in a few minutes, but it was deemed
advisable not to remove the body untii
viewed by the coroner.
Coroner Taylor, upon hearing the state
ments of a number of persons, and exaratn
iu" the body, came to the conclusion that
death was caused by congestion of tje
i !un?'- Mr. Franklin sometimes sutured
from "sbor'ness of breath, but it svus gene
rally attributed by him ana Ins friends to he
?Teat fleshiness, as he weighed about 2o0
! pounds. The body was 'turned in the city
ambulance to the residence ot the deceased.

Tu?* Cost of City Ccreing.? The joint
Committee on Sireets Generally, of tbe City
Council, have been looking over the records
since 1843 m order to procure some iulorma
tion as to the comparative cost of street
curbing, then and now. It appears that be
tween tbe years 1843 and 1852 tlis price
ranged from 25 cents to 31^ oent9 per foot,
the work be.ug mostly done at 25 cents per
foot. Tbe price aiow Is 80 cents per foot.
At no time up to 1800 did tbe price go be
yond 37 cents, and it is understood tbat from
about tbe time of Captain Dimmock's ad
ministration of the Engineer department up
to this period the specifications were much
more exacting, ar.d that the prices went up
accordingly. When the curbing is let out
by coutruct the specifications have been and
are now so exacting as to require tbe best
monument granite to fill the bill. Hence
the increased cost. Tbe Committee on
Streets Generally are now endeavoring to go
buck to the old style of curbing, and to
something approximating old prices. If
they succeed tnere will be a saving from
thirty-five to forty-five cents per loot, and
consequently there will be several tbousmd
dollars more that can be made available irom
tbe annual appropriation for street improve
Robbery Committed in Gc^ernor Kem
pkr's Kitchen.? Between 8 aud 9 o'clock
Thursday Dight tbe kitchen attached to tbe
Gubernatorial Mansion was entered by way
of a window and a silver watch and gold
Viug belonging to Mary Thompson, tbe cook,
stolen. Suspicion fell upon James Camp
bell, a colored convict who had been work
ing about tbe Capitol and Executive grounds
for a long time prior to Wednesday, when
bis term having expired he was discharged,
aud Dectective Joun Wren, iu whose bunds
the ease was put, got ji warrant for Cump
bell'a arrest. While Wren went down town
hunting for Campbell Mr. Roscoe Chester
man, of the capitol police, went up on Broad
street and found Campbell at the Mason
Dojg aud took him into custody and carried
turn to the Sccoad statiou-house.
It is*bolieved that there will be no diffi
culty in proving tbe burglary upon Camp- 1
bell. He was sent to jjilfor twelve months, '
and afterwards to tbe penitentiary for twelve
mouibs for thefts.

As the Fourth of July Tails on Sunday tbfs

Tor the celebration of the holldav, and the
JJispatch this morning C3ntains "notices of
several trips which will no doubt be enjoya
With the heated summer weather always
come the various expedients for furnishing
the dwellers In Richmond with healthful and
| pleasurable amusement. The rich, and those
I who are able to do so, are packing their
trunks for the sea-side resorts, or the Vir
ginia Springs ; but the vast number who toll
from sunrise until evening ctnoot order their
wjngs and be off to the sea-shore and moun- 1
tains. Except.aE brief Intervals, they must
remain in the beat and dust of the city, glad
if only for a few fleeting hours now and j
then, fcey can breath? the life-giving air of
the beautiful spots in old Virginia adjacent 1
to the city. For the benefit and enjoyment of J
this very important class of Citizens do we J
this morning mention several excursions and 1
pic-nics for Monday. For a Firnll sum the
laboring man and his happy iamily may avail I
themselves of tbe pleasures of a bealtn-glv- 1
ing excursion to salt water or to the coun
try. Efforts have been made to increase the }
attractiveness of these excursions tbis sum- 1
mer, and surely to no city in the American
Union has nature been more lavi9h of her |
gifts. It is needless to recite tbem all. There
is surely no better way of resting mind and I
body than by escaping as often as possible |
from the dusty, heated, and crowded streets
of the city into the fresh, pure couotry air,
which can be bo heartily and innocently I
enjoyed. But to our notices. " j
