Shocking death.

--A lad in Wilmington, N. C., named Jas. E. Dickson, took enough of his mother's money, on Wednesday last, so buy two small shot guns, with which he and a companion went shooting. The gun of his companion accidentally exploded, shooting Dickson in the head, as he was crossing a branch near the town. The frightened boy fled home, leaving Dickson lying half buried in mud and water. He was found Friday morning, still alive, and lived till Saturday, when he died, after relating the manner of the accident. His lying in the mud, dying almost, for two nights and a day, is awful.
