Death of T. A. Tefft.--Mr. T. A. Tefft, State Commissioner of the Industrial Art Association of Rhode Island, died in Florence, Italy, this day, from a fever contracted in Venice, which almost immediately deprived him of reason, and within ten days of life, though he had the best of attendance. He was an accomplished architect, much esteemed at home, and had recently made a name among statists in Europe by a learned and able treatise on Universal Currency, including a plan for a common currency in France, England, and America, based on the decimal system. It elicited a complimentary letter from Count Cavour, highly recommending the scheme. - Friday, January 20, 1860.
