COOL AND DELIBERATE SUICIDE - A young man named Theodore Dunning Lincoln, committed suicide about half past three this morning, by blowing out his brains with a revolver.  He was a native of New Haven, Conn., and only 26 years of age, an only son, with no relatives except a mother and sister, who reside in the North.  The fatal act was committed on Basin street, between Bienville and Custom House, at the house formerly kept by Mary E. King, who with so many of her trail impartations went down with the Evening Star.  The place is now kept by Miss Nelly Otis. who, however, is off at some of the watering places, and has left Miss Emma Stanley in charge.  It became our province to meet Miss Stanley in our inquiries in regard to this sad affair.  Her report is as follows:
     "I have known him for over a year, he has been in the habit of coming to see me during that time, and I had formed an attachment for him which induced me to watch him when I thought he was going astray.  I had been very lenient, and I don't know but he presumed upon it.  Three or four days ago I noticed that he was drinking rather heavily, and with the intention of doing him good, I informed him that he could not visit me until he quit drinking.  He promised me that he would do so, and seemed to look to me for advice.  When he first came last night, I saw he had been drinking, and told him he could not stay.  There were no angry expressions used.  I merely wished to punish him for his disipation.  At about half-past 3 A.M., I was awakened by the housekeeper, who informed me that there was a gentleman who had just arrived in a cab who had a dispatch from Nelly Otis for her.  I knew in a moment who it was, and determined to not let him in.  He asked me if I would not open the door.  I told him "No."  He said "You will regret it," and at the same time I heard the report of a pistol, and saw him fall from the entry out upon the pavement.  The door was opened immediately, but he was dead, having evidently placed the pistol directly against his ear.
     Mr. Lincoln, as we before stated, is a native of Connecticut, and has been in the employ of the Government in the Mint.  Miss Stanley thinks from his talk and actions that there was some deficit in his accounts which troubled his mind and induced him to drink and lose his mind.

SUDDEN DEATH - Mrs. SNYDER, a young woman about twenty-five years of age who resided at 561 Love street, died very suddenly yesterday under very peculiar circumstances.  She visited Carrollton with her children, two little daughters, intending to call upon a friend.  It was about 1 o'clock when she reached the place, and was then seized with a sudden illness.  Her children were placed in the hands of a lady friend of hers, and the poor woman, in the charge of police officers, brought back to the city.
     From the terminus of the route she was taken to the office of Dr. HOWE No. 11 Batonne street, where every attention was provided.  The unfortunate woman said there was no one at home to attend her, but still expressed an unwillingness to go to a hospital.  About 6 o'clock in the evening she died, and her body was taken to the First District station, and there stretched out in the public hall during the night, and not one solitary friend stood near it to shed a sympathetic tear.
     The woman was clad in a simple calico dress.  She was a brunette, her hair black as a ravens wing, and her features of an Italian cast.  Notwithstanding the strange circumstances under which she was called away from this world, a smile of complacency and resignation seemed to rest upon her countenance.
     The Coroner held an inquest on the body this morning, and decided that death was produced by a congestive chill.
A sailor whose name we were unable to ascertain, last evening about 6 o'clock, accidentally fell overboard from the bark Monsoon, now lying at head of Richard street, and was drowned.  His body has not yet been recovered.
