DEATH OF VERMONT SOLDIER--THE TROY TIMES OF SATURDAY, JULY 19TH HAS THE FOLLOWING:
On Monday last a wounded Vermont Soldier, named John (sic) Clark, a member of the 6th Vermont regiment, arrived at the American House in charge of his father. The poor fellow, although a few miles from home could go no farther, and was obliged to remain at the hotel, where from his parents and friends had the best possible care and attention. Last night the unfortunate soldier, after suffering nearly three weeks from his wounds, died peacefully and calmly. He was shot in the breast on the 4th of July, on the last desperate efforts of the rebels to drive our army into the James River.
Clark was a native of Lincoln, Vermont. His remains will be taken home for burial this evening.
