Morrisville, Dec. 14--At 10 o'clock in the morning the gang of men, who had been working for several hours in the ruins of Yesterday's Vermont House Fire, found the remains of the unfortunate Hercules Mudgett, who was suffocated in the upper rooms while attempting to get out goods. He was first to discover the fire, being at work on a job carpentering in a room near the office. He, with others, went to the upper part of the house, and at the time, in the midst of the confusion, it was not noticed that he did not appear. Mr. Mudgett was 53 years old, and leaves two children. He served during the Civil War in Co. E., 13th Vermont Regiment.
