PROBABLE SUICIDE-The coroner was called a few days ago to hold an inquest upon the body of a man named Martin Mallory, who resided on Saratoga street, a short distance above Mayo.  As the matter has been related to us, Martin had been on a spree and his nervous system had become so deranged that the reverted to laudanum and whiskey as a soothing medium.

Either unconscience or reckless of what he did, it seems he took an overdose of laudanum and died without the knowledge of his family who did not ascertain the facts till long after daylight.  The verdict of the jury was in accordance with the above facts.
