HE DIED IN THE HOSPITAL.- The citizens of Arlington were lately called to pay the last tribute of respect to one of her noblest sons, who gave his life a sacri- fice to his country. Yes, though he died in the hospital, we shall ever think of George Fowler, Jr., as one whom the sin of slavery murdered, and would it be too much to say of those who defend the sys- tem, as necessary to the crime. Sure it is, whenever in after years we refer to those who fall in this struggle for freedom, it will be with the same reverence that we now feel speaking of the heroes of seventy-six.
