Death of a Soldier. – The remains of Augustus R. Fuller, a soldier in Co. K, 12th Vermont regiment, who died in a hospital in Virginia, March 20th, reached his home in West Rutland, April 4th, and were buried in the old churchyard. He was a son of Mr. Jeduthan Fuller, of West Rutland, and like many others who have gone out from our Green Mountain State to fight the battle of the Union, was stricken down by death. The following expression of esteem is taken from a letter written by an officer of his company: - “The death of Augustus caused much sorrow. He was highly esteemed by both officers and men – always pleasant and obliging.
