A coffin . . .

. . . containing a dead body, and addressed to George W. Robinson, arrived at the express office night before last.  There seems to be no such person known around here and the agent is somewhat perplexed to know what to do with it.  It came from St. Louis here, though it is possible it came there from beyond that city.
