We regret to state that Mr. NEAL HEAD, of whom we spoke last week, died on Friday morning.  Every appliance under the control of scientific men was used to extract the piece of chicken bone from his throat, but without avail.  Dr. Westmoreland, of Atlanta, was sent for by Mr. J. D. Head, who, with our own physicians, did all in his power for the suffering gentleman.  We learn that a daughter and son of Mr. N. Head’s reached here on the day of his death—probably four or five hours before he breathed his last.

This unfortunate affair cast a gloom over the whole town.  The deceased had been here but a short time, on a visit to his brother, but he made a great may friends.

His remains were placed in a metallic casket, and immediately forwarded to his relations in Princeton, Indiana.  May he rest in peace. [Article mentioned last week that a brother of J. D. Head, Esq., got a chicken bone lodges in his throat on Tuesday.]
