Misc. Notes
Suicide.—A coroner's inquest was held yesterday afternoon over the body of Mr. Richard Holt Sager, aged 43 years.
He was discovered by bis nephew, between 1 and 2 o'clock, at his store No. 8 Fletcher street, hanging from the fall rope, winch was made fast to the wheel, and from appearance was supposed to have been dead for some time.
From tbe evidence at the inquest, the Coroner reports that " he had for some time been laboring under mental derangement."
Mr. Sager was a native of England, but a resident of this city for the last 10 or 16 years, engaged as an importer of British Goods.
He was a gentleman of correct deportment, sedate in bis habits, supposed to be in prosperous
circumstances, and was in general respect with the mercantile community, with whom his transactions were extensive
He was in conversation with a merchant at 12 o'clock yesterday on the subject of business, when
he appeared perfectly rational. His friends are wholly unable to account for the unfortunate act.
