Louth-- We record with unfeigned regret the death of Mr. J. Slevin, T.C., Drogheda, which occurred Sept. 7th last, after a very short illness. The deceased gentleman drove in as usual to business on the previous morning, from Bettystown, where the family had been stopping for the season. On coming to town he complained of feeling unwell, and on being medically attended it was found that he suffered from an internal complaint, which had attacked him on several occasions before. There was no improvement in his condition during the day, but instead he gradually grew worse, and the next morning peacefully expired. The news of his death was received with the deepest regret, for his many good qualities and his unaffected manners had won him numerous friends.
