Death of a Volunteer.

--Acting Coroner Richard D. Sanxay was called on yesterday to view the body of Andrew Marsden, aged 32 years, a native of Richmond, but late of Arkansas, whose body was found at the Medical College. Deceased belonged to a regiment stationed in the vicinity of Camp McGregor, but had been discharged because hopelessly afflicted with dropsy on the brain. He was taken in the hospital on the 25th of February, and up to the time of his decease, had received every attention and kindness from the physicians in charge. It appears that although unable to walk, previously, on Tuesday evening he arose from his bed and made hasty strides to his room door, and walked into the passage adjoining, where, unfastening a door, he fell through a dark opening about four feet square, used for conveying articles from the lower to the upper part of the Hospital. Death ensued from the fall. The acting Coroner did not deem an inquest necessary.
