BLED TO DEATH IN TEN MINUTES The Portia brought word from trinity of the death of a well known resident of that place, Abraham HISCOCK, which occurred under very sad circumstances. For several years, the deceased suffered from a cancerous growth over his eye for which he had tried several remedies, but without success. One day last week, just after sitting at the dinner table, one of the arteries near the sore broke. The blood gushed out in a stream, overflowing a basin and partly filling a 10 lb. butter tub. The man's family were so frightened, that they could make but very little effort to stop it. For ten minutes the gore continued flowing, and when it ceased, Mr. HISCOCK fell from his seat, dead. He leaves a wife and several children.
