San Francisco, March 9.E. T. KENNEDY committed suicide in his own room at the Russ House last night by taking laudanum. Deceased was employed on the Alta as leading writer for some weeks past. He left a letter to a fellow journalist, which shows the act to have been the result of despondency and disgust with life. Deceased was a man of much ability, but of delicate organization, sensitive disposition, and at times addicted to the use of stimulants.
