A Sad Affair. -- George Rose, aged about twenty-seven years, a soldier in the U.S.regular service, shot himself, in a fit of frenzied intoxication, at the residence of his wife's mother, on the Berlin side, near Montpelier village, on Sunday, July 30th. The Montpelier Freeman says that Rose came to Montpelier several weeks since, and was attached to the recruiting office opened there. Soon after his arrival, he made the acquaintance of a girl to whom he was married some two weeks since. He was naturally of steady habits, and had been known to drink but little or nothing till Saturday, at which time orders were received for the recruiting officer and his assistants to report at Forst Independence. ?Rose then commenced drinking and was so worked upon by the alcohol and the thought of being separated from his wife, that Sunday noon de declared he would shoot himself. Seizing his pistol he first one charge out of the window, and, ere those in the room could stay his hand, loading it with another cartridge, aimed it at his left breast, fired, and in ten minutes life was extinct. Rose was of Irish descent and had been in the British army for some years previous to entering the U.S. service.
