I attended the burial service of Rev. Daniel Liles, of this place, yesterday evening. Not knowing whether you had received the intelligence of his death or not, I thought I would send it. He came to death, about four miles south of Paris, by being knocked from a tressel by the southbound train. He was insane, and no longer his wonted self. He was a minister of considerable usefulness.
