Death of Dr. John Giddings

Newbury-Port, Nov. 30. Last Wednesday evening Dr. John Giddings of Exeter, State of New Hampshire, we are informed, put a period to his existence, by drowning himself. It is said that he had intimated his intention some time previous to his committing the horrid deed; and only a day or two before had asked his brother which he supposed to be the least painful death, hanging or drowning. He has left a wife and five children.
