The dead body of Daniel Ellis of Northfield was found in Roxbury last week, and the verdict of the coroner's jury declared that he died of exposure, on or about the 4th, He was subject to fits of insanity, and last September he disappeared, as he had frequently done before. His friends supposed he was safe, and, in fact, heard someone resembling him was at work in an adjoining town. He was about 70 years old.
