Jan. 4, in the parole camp, Annapolis, Md., Otis H. Brainerd, Co. I, 1st Vt. Cavalry, aged 19 years.

Young Brainerd was among the Union parolled prisoners who arrived at Annapolis from Richmond on the 29th ult., and his death was, no doubt, caused by the ill treatment he received while at the rebel Capital.
