Death of Col. J. J. Polsley. - Our citizens were startled on last Monday morning by the intelligence of the sudden death of John J. Polsley, late Lieut. Col. of the 7th West Va. Vet. Cavalry.
He was upon our street on Saturday, apparently in usual health, and the sad intelligence of his decease sent a thrill of awe through our whole community.
