A telegram received Tuesday by John Brown announces the sudden death of Peter McMahon at Michigan City today. The particulars are not known, but the death was very sudden. The deceased was well known in this city, where he resided a number of years. His wife was Miss Julia Brown, who died about five years ago. He was made a guard at the Northern Prison, in which capacity he served for a number of years when he resigned and purchased a saloon at Michigan City and has since operated it.- kbz
