We learn, says the Rome Courier that on Wednesday or Thursday of last week, Mr. Jacob Smyer, the owner of a mill some three or four miles below Coosaville, in that county, was caught in his machinery by his clothes, drawn in between two cog-wheels, and most horribly mutilated, causing his immediate death.  Mr. Smyer was a worthy citizen, and his untimely death is deeply deplored.
