Death from toothache.

--Mr. Levi Cain, a wealthy gentleman, resign near Harrington, Kent county, Delaware, died on the 17th inst., from a disease produced by toothache. The Wilmington Republican says:

‘ "On the 5th of the month he complained of toothache, but considered it nothing more than an ordinary attack of that unpleasant affliction. It grew more serious, however, and progressed from bad to worse, until he was forced to take to his bed, and after the lapse of several days, erysipelas made its appearance about his face and throat, superinduced by the pain and irritation of his teeth. This disease spread over his body, and in spite of medical skill, and of everything that could be done for him, terminated the patient's existence on the day above named, in twelve days from the time he was first affected.
