Sudden death.

--Capt. H. Young, a native of Kentucky, but for some years a resident of Baltimore, Md., was found dead in bed in one of the rooms at the American Hotel yesterday morning. Capt. Young was formerly a Captain in the Confederate service, but has more recently been a clerk in one of the Government Departments. On Monday night he appeared in the hotel in a drunken condition, and by some means gained access to a room which was unoccupied. When first found, which was quite early in the morning, it is supposed that he had not long been dead, as his flesh was still warm and moist, although there were no signs of life remaining. A physician was summoned, however, who pronounced all efforts at restoration impossible, and as the unfortunate man was known to have been on a "spree" for some time, the impression is that his death was caused from excessive dissipation. Mr. L. H. Chandler, Acting Coroner in the absence of Mr. Sanxay, decided, in view of the facts of the case, that an inquest was unnecessary.
