The painful intelligence of the death of Capt. Isaac B. Browdish, of Burlington, was received there on Saturday, by telegraph. The information is yet meager, but it appears that he was injured fatally, while passing from Norfolk, Va., to Suffolk, by the cars running off into an open drawbridge, and died on Friday afternoon.
