Shawneetown, Ill., September 2.--Maj. Aaron R. STOUT died at his residence in this city at 5 o'clock this morning. He was one of the oldest and most prominent citizens of this place, having come to Shawneetown in 1839. He was an extensive contractor and builder of that early day, and became wealthy, but was afterward unfortunate in the wholesale merchandise business, dying a poor but highly honored man. He was a native of Emmitsburg, Md., and was 77 years of age.
