Found Dead at Limehouse.

On Monday evening a man about sixty years of age, fell or jumped off the 5.02 eastern express just after the train had left Limehouse, and is supposed to have been struck by the step of the car, and instantly killed. The conductor of the train noticed him fall and informed the conductor of the Western train at Georgetown of the fact, and the body was found by the trainmen and brought to Acton. The corpse had laid in the freight shed here from the time of the accidnt until Tuesday evening, when, it having been deemed unnecessary to hold a coroner's inquest, Reeve Smith and Col. Allan searched the body and a valise for a clue to the identity of the deceased. In the valise was found a letter dated Clinton, Dec. 4th, address - "Mr. and Mrs. Wittington, Muskoka," and signed by J. Curtis Stevenson, which shows that deceased was on his way to Muskoka, and was the father of either Mr. or Mrs. Wittington. The deceased was about five feet six inches in height, probably sixty years of age, and had the appearance of being a laboring man. The only wound to be found was a deep bruise on the side of the head.
Information respecting the accident was telegraphed to Clinton, and the friends of deceased arrived here last evening and took charge of the body.
