Since our last, the remains of Alexander Corbett, the person who was lost in December last, on his way to the West river settlement, were conveyed through this town on the road to Scotch Fort, where they go in order for interment. The body of this unfortunate man was found in the woods surrounding the Settlement, about a quarter of a mile from the house of Mr. Crosby. The flesh had been nearly all devoured by the foxes, before he was discovered. The real occasion of this melancholy death cannot well be accounted for.
