Mr. Magor arrived at Hayle on Tuewsday evening, about seven o'clock, and complained of slight indisposition; but after taking tea he appeared in good health, and retired to bed at an early hour. Not making his appearance at his usual time on Wednesday morning, the servant, shortly after nine o'clock, knocked on his door, and receiving no answer, opened it, when, on drawing aside the curtain of his bed, she found him quite dead. He was lying as if asleep, and the bed clothes were not at all disturbed. Mr. LEY, surgeon, was immediately sent for, who gave it as his opinion that Mr. Magor had been dead for some hours, and that the cause of his death was most probably some affection of the heart.
