leatb of apt Browning;. Telegrams from Weldon, received yesterday, announced the death in that place at 7.45 in the morning, of Capt. E. D. Browning, for many years a well known and popular conductor on the Wilmington & Weldon Railroad. He had been sick with a severe attack of rheumatism for some time past, but it is supposed that his death was directly caused by a fall he sustained last Friday while his attendants were assisting him from bis bed, and in which one of his legs was broken. Capt. Browning had been a conductor on the Wilmington & Weldon Railroad for about thirty years, but resigned the position three or four years ago, to look after his private interests. He was born in Halifax county, N. C, and aged about fifty-three years. A sister and two brothers survive him.
