Death from Hydropmobia.

--A son of Mr. Samuel Abrahams, of Mendham, New Jersey, died on Monday last of hydrophobia, caused by the bite of a dog on the 11th of March last. The wound was cut out and cauterized some two or three hours afterwards, and having shown no symptoms of the disease for several weeks after that time, it was thought he was out of danger from it. A week ago last Friday he was taken with a chill and slight convulsions, which soon passed off, however, and he resumed his customary duties. He was again similarly taken on Friday, and on Sunday fearful convulsions set in, which continued until his death on Monday.
