Salmon Winchester, while hauling logs from Andover on Tuesday last, was suddenly killed by the tipping of his load upon him. Death is supposed to have been caused by suffocation, as he only spoke three times after being reached, and from the fact that no bruises could be found upon him. Funeral at his late home on Friday, Jan. 14.
