Obituary

From the Vermont 2d Regiment. We are permitted to copy the following extract from a private letter from a member of the Vt. 2d.

I have just returned from attending the funeral of one of Co. I (the Burlington Company) of the 5th Reg't. his name is George Loggins from St. George, Vt., he has a brother in Co. G., and another in his own company in the 5th Regiment. They were three steady, sober, well-behaved men. I know the one in our company is one of our best men, and from what I hear the others were as much thought of in their own regiments. The service was performed by an Episcopal clergyman, and the scene around the grave was very affecting in fact, I could not keep the tears from coming in my own eyes. The procession marching to the grave in a slow step, a squad of men in front with their arms reversed, and the fife and muffled drum staying a low and very mournful dead march. If any thing will bring tears into a man's eyes, that will.
