By post mortem examination it was ascertained that
the immediate cause of his death was congestion of the lungs.
Mr. Crittenden was called away from earth, from its
trials, its conflicts and its feats, in the 39th years of his age. He has left a wife and two interesting little
children to suffer the loss of a kind husband and an indulgent father. They are, however, consoled in their
great affliction with the hope of meeting him again in that land and country where death and partings are suffered
no more forever. --- May the blessing of heaven rest upon his family and friends, and may they all be trained and
live for a home in that upper and better land.
