Dr. James M. Knox of Essex Junction, a well known physician and scholar, committed suicide on Friday evening week before last.

He was born in Tunbridge, and was about 54 years old. He graduated at the University of Vermont in 1849, and at the Castleton Medical School in 1851; among his classmates in the former institution being J. Wider May, of Boston, and Judge Shaw and Noyes.

He had long been afflicted with melancholy, which finally settled into insanity, and on the night of his suicide he found a sharp knife, while in a closet after his medicine, and plunged it into his heart.
