He said he had made diligent search among the neigh bours, but could gain no tidings of Mrs. Dan, and consequently he was afraid she had met with some mishap. Sergeant Forrest, on Thursday morn ing, started out to investigate the matter, but was met about 8 miles from town by a son and daughter of Mr. Dan's, who informed him that their mother had returned home late the previous evening. Mrs. Dan (who it is said is the mother of 14 children) is near her confinement and all the more concern was felt in her behalf on this account.
