Dated: Sept. 12, 1857
The Louisville papers of Tuesday last, annouce the death of Hon. George G. Dunn, of Bedford, Lawrence county, Indiana.  The Democrat says: - "The sad event occurred at his residence on Friday night last.  He has labored for eighteen months under the affection of the spleen, and his death was not unexpected.  Mr. Dunn was one of the most remarkable men in Indiana, and occupied a first position in the legal profession.  He had filled many high official trusts, and represented his district in the last Congress.  Although a member of the American party, he was never intense as a politician.  His style of oratory was elegant and winning in the extreme."
