Death of Capt. Pritchett.

Capt. Marcellus L. Pritchett died at Jackson, Ala., last week and his remains were brought to this city for interment, arriving on Friday. A number of friends and relatives accompanied the remains and were present as the last sad rites were performed at his last resting place in Oak Hill cemetery.

Capt. Pritchett was suddenly stricken with something like apoplexy while on the streets of Jackson and only lived a very short while after being conveyed to his home.

Deceased left this city a little over two years ago, selling out all his interests here and cast his fortunes at Jackson, Ala., where there were large ochre interests, he having familiarized himself with the business of ochre mining and manufacture.

His departure was a source of regret as he was highly esteemed as a citizen having for years resided here and been identified in many ways with the city’s progress and always showing himself a man of stable integrity and commendable demeanor.
