  • Notes 
    • Peter Ernst - Death of Peter Ernst, Esq., of Baden. We very much regret to announce the death on Sunday evening last of the above gentleman. From information which has been forwarded us, we learn that Mr. Ernst had gone that evening to Hamburg to see some friends, and while sitting talking in the sitting room of Seyler's Hotel he suddenly complained of dizziness. Mr. S. Morner, to whom he was talking, observing that he seemed likely to fall off his chair, caught him and laid him on a sofa in the room, and at once summoned assistance, and secured medical aid, but all was of no avail, and after a few gasping breaths death came. Disease of the heart or apoplexy is supposed to have been the cause. Mr. Ernst was an active, pushing business man, largely respected by all who knew him. For many years he has occupied a very prominent position in the Township of Wilmot. His untimely and fearfully sudden death has thrown a gloom over the locality where he was so well known, and where most of his life had been spent. The sympathy of the deceased gentleman's many friends is heartily tendered to his family and relatives.
