FOUND DEAD. - Captain David Landon, of Waterbury, was found dead in the main street of that village at an early hour Thursday a.m. He was engaged in the butchering business and had been with his meat cart to Jonesville, from which place he started on his return home about 2 o'clock a.m. When found the forward springs of the cart were broken. It is supposed that he fell from the vehicle and that his horses dragged him and thus occasioned his death. Captain Landon was a native of Hinesburgh and a brother of Joseph Landon. He also resided in Stowe and was a Captain in the Seventh Vermont Regiment. His age was about 45 years.
