      We have lost no one from Berlin, but St. Jacobs mourns for one manly heart which has ceased its pulsations. Poor Jacob C. Snyder, jr., we parted with him in Toronto on Wednesday morning, in the enjoyment of health and in the hope of a long and useful life. Thursday evening he was a corpse! Mr. Snyder had gone to Toronto to place himself under the care of Dr. Cadwell, the Oculist. He had left Toronto to see a party in Hamilton, intending to return on the morrow. Unfortunate man -- he hurried himself into eternity. He was a generous-hearted and upright man, and we feel certain left not an enemy in the world. His remains were brought to St. Jacobs on Saturday and were laid in their last restingplace on Monday, attended by a large concourse of sorrowing friends. The evidence on the Coroner's Jury, taken thus far, we are unable to print this week, Until the verdict is rendered we withhold our opinion of the cause of the accident -- an opinion formed after the closet examination of surrounding appearances.2a
