Dr. Vanmeter has just returned from the North, and brings the distressing news of the death of his brother by drowning, which occurred by a boat capsizing in Clinton river, Michigan, where he had gone one a fishing excursion.  His body was recovered, but not until life was extinct.  He was much loved by the guests at the Springs House, where he was also a guest, who drafted a series of resolutions showing the high esteem in which he was held by those in the midst of whom he died.  The house which he represented, Messrs. Sibley & Holland, of Buffalo, N. Y., have also written a letter of condolence to Mrs. Vanmeter in which they state that he made friends wherever he went, and that his place will be hard to fill.
