DEATH OF GEN. GEORGE F. D'UTASSY. WILMINGTON, DEL., May 5.--Gen. Geo. F. D'Utassy, of Baltimore, who was found unconscious in his room at the Hotel Wil- lis, this city, last Saturday morning from the effects of inhaling gas, died at the Delaware hospital this afternoon. He was unconscious all the time. His wife, brother, and a business associate were with him at the time of his death. There now seems no doubt that the un- fortunate affair was an accident, and not an act of suicide. It is said for the de- ceased that his business affairs were in good shape, his family relations perfect, and that there were no troublesome mat- ters calculated to so prey upon his mind as to induce him to take his own life. The belief is that while up during the night he accidently turned on the gas and, falling asleep again before detecting the poison- ous air, was soon asphyxiated. His re- mains will be taken to Baltimore for inter- ment. Gen. D'Utassy was a soldier of some re- nown, who saw service in the Crimean war and was conspicuous in the war of the rebellion. He was sixty-five years old, and was a thirty-third degree Mason.
