Another Gone: On Friday last, the body of Joseph Conant of Waterbury, who went out in the 15th Regiment, arrived by Express, directed to Dr. B. F. Conant. He had been sick with measles, but when last heard from was thought to be out of danger, and the first intimation his friends had of his death was the appearance of the box containing his remains.
