Eliphalet Culver, who was reporter as improving from his injuries, last, week, was buried, last week. To all appearances, as far as his injuries were concerned, he seemed to be gaining, until about three days before his death, when he grew rapidly worse. An autopsy held by Drs. Cooley and Chase, Friday, revealed the fact that the force of the blow broke two ribs under the scapula, and a sharp point of one of them penetrated the right lung, which was the primary cause of his death. There was a full house at the funeral, at 11 o'clock a.m. Saturday, showing respect for an old soldier.
