Friends of Joseph Marsh, who has been spending some time at his plantation at Jonesville, La., have received word that last week he fell and sprained his ankle.  It is learned that Mr. Marsh suffered his injury in a most peculiar way.  He was occupying a second floor room in the new house that has been built on the plantation, and walked out on the top landing of an out side stairway, around which a railing had not yet been built.  The night being dark, he walked off and fell with some force to the ground, sustaining the injury to his ankle and also bruises which are undoubtedly painful. - Marshfield News
