WEST RANDOLPH

Benjamin B. Allen of West Randolph, a blacksmith, and a worthy and respected citizen, a few days since showed symptoms of insanity, which daily increased; and for about a week past, he has been a raving maniac, and to all appearance is hopelessly insane. He was taken to Brattleboro on Saturday. He has a wife and four children residing here, who are entitled to and received the deepest sympathy of the entire community, in their sad affliction.
