****
We are pained to record the death of COL. JESSE PERKINS, of Madison county - an old and universally respected citizen - he had reached the ripe age of 72 years, but with body and mind unimpaired. His step was as firm - his nerves as steady - his form as erect - his mind as vigorous of most men of half his age. He died suddenly; and his family and friends, without warning, are called to mourn their loss.
