Death on young Lewellen. --We very much regret to record the death of young Edward Lewellen, son of Mr. James W. Lewellen, of the Richmond Republic. It will be remembered that he was accidentally shot in the wrist, while out on a hunting excursion with a young friend, on Thursday, the 17th instant. As he leaped from the wagon, in which they rode, to shoot a bird, the lock of his gun hung in his clothes and was fired off, wounding him in the wrist.

It will be remembered that he was accidentally shot in the wrist, while out on a hunting excursion with a young friend, on Thursday, the 17th instant. As he leaped from the wagon, in which they rode, to shoot a bird, the lock of his gun hung in his clothes and was fired off, wounding him in the wrist. The wound, although painful, was not deemed serious at the time; and his parents looked forward to his speedy recovery. His case, however, took a more serious turn within a few days, and on yesterday at 12 o'clock he died of lockjaw. As he was an only son, his death is all the more afflicting to his parents. He was about eighteen years old, and was an ingenuous and gentle youth, greatly esteemed by those who knew him.
