--In the county of Salem, N. C., on Tuesday morning last, the dead body of Sarah Walker, daughter of John Walker was found suspended from the rafters in the garret of her father's house. It appears this daughter kept house for her father, and as she occasionally visited the neighbors, her absence in this instance for a day created no uneasiness, until on Tuesday morning her father became somewhat alarmed at her protracted absence, and instituted search, when her body was found as above stated. No cause was assigned for the rash act. She was 28 years of age.
