Little Abe is Dead

London, Mar. 5. Master Abraham Lincoln, the son of Robert Todd LINCOLN, United States Minister, who has been suffering from blood poisoning arising from a malignant carbuncle on his left side below the arm-pit, died at 11 o'clock this morning. During the morning the lad was in a comatose condition and unable to retain nourishment, but he suffered no pain.

Mr. LINCOLN and his family were at his bedside from early this morning until he died. He passed away quietly. The Queen sent a message of sympathy to Mr. LINCOLN. The body will be embalmed and sent home for interment.

The death is particularly sad, as he was his father's only son, and with the exception of Minister LINCOLN, the only male descendant of the martyred president, his grandfather.
