Mr. M. Marks died last Saturday under the following distressing circumstances: On Friday he was suffering intensely from neuralgia, and his physician gave him morphine for relief. He took several doses during the day and at about eleven o??™clock that night, got up to take more medicine; but being somewhat bewildered from the opiate, in some way, set his own clothing on fire. When his wife reached him, his night-clothing was nearly burnt off, and his stomach, breasts and face terribly burned. He lived in extreme agony until about noon Saturday, when he breathed his last. Mr. Marks has been a merchant in Rome for some 30 years; was scrupulous, honest and exact in all his business transactions; was a man of remarkable modesty of good practical sense and in every way one of our best citizens. - Courier 10th.
