He was intensely loyal during the turbu lent days ol the rebellion, and a warm active republican politician. Louis T. Boulden of the second district, residing near Chesapeake City, was almost instantly killed by the accidental discharge of bis gun, on Saturday last. He was in the act of drawing the loaded gun—muzzle toward him, —from a wagon, when the hammers caught and fired the gun which caused his death. This same manner of accident is so often re- 1 corded in the papers that it is strange that people will continue to repeat 1 the same dangerous experiments. A breech loading gun—which the one I in question was —should never have 1 a loaded shell in the barrel when the ' sportsman is not in immediate pur suit of the game. . Libeaty Grove, Nov. 10, 'BS.
