A Secessionist Loses a Legacy.

--Henry King, a wealthy resident of Allentown, Pa., died a few weeks since, leaving an estate valued at $300,000. He died childless. He was a brother of T. Butler King, one of the Commissioners of the Confederate States, now in Europe. Mr. King had made a will leaving half of his property to his wife and the other half of his property to his wife and the other half to his brother, but a few weeks before his death, exasperated at the secession sentiments of his brother, he made a new will, leaving most of his property to his wife, and the remainder to charitable purposes.
