We are concerned to hear of the death of Mr. Rich. PRICE, one of the sub-commissioners employed by the record commission. His extensive knowledge of German and northern literature, makes his loss a matter of deep regret to all who take an interest in the early history and antiquities of the country. Mr. PRICE had been long suffering under a dropsical complaint, which proved fatal on the morning of the 23d.
