Sad Occurrence (The following from a subscriber was received last week, to late for publication)

Quite a serious and melancholy occurrence took place on the evening of the 7th inst., at the coal bank at Trenton. The wife of the overseer, Mr. Vingar Mitchell, threw herself and child down the shaft a distance of 165 feet. They were taken out dead, about three-quarters of an hour after the occurrence. The woman having her skull split, but the child not otherwise injured than being drowned. The cause of this rash act cannot be accounted for; other than the unfortunate woman was subject to fits of insanity.
