SUDDEN DEATH -- A dispatch was received in this city yesterday, announcing the sudden death, at Benicia, of the eldest son of Colonel P.E. CONNOR, aged 7 years. His disease was scarlet fever. He was a promising lad and a universal favorite among his schoolfellows and playmates in this city, who will deeply regret his absence from their circles.
