Smothered to death.

--Hiram Crafts, of Carlton, N. H., went on board a schooner, at Portland, on Saturday night, and found his way to a berth and turned in. The schooner had been fumigated and smoked on Saturday, with charcoal and brimstone, for the purpose of killing rats, and all the crevices had been covered with paper to confine the fumes.--Crafts was dead when the vessel was opened on Sunday.
