MELANCHOLY ACCIDENT

The Rev. Richard Roberts, who resided about five miles north of this place, was mortally injured by the falling of a tree on Thursday last. It appears that he was engaged in cutting down timber in the forest when a large limb of a tree struck him on the head so severely that it proved mortal in a few hours. The deceased was a man of many virtues, a pure and devout Christian and was beloved and respected by all who knew him.
