Another soldier of the late war has been mustered out. Edson P. Osborne died at his home in Harvard Place on Friday, after a protracted illness. He was a native of Chelsea, Vt., and enlisted in the first company of Vermont sharpshooters, Sept. 13, 1864, for one year, which company was united Dec. 18, 1864, with the third company, of which Capt. W.W. Smith of this city was commander, and was known as Co. H, 2d regiment, Berdan's sharpshooters. Dec. 24, 1864, the company was transferred and became Co.

He was a faithful and brave soldier and served in the closing battles of the war which brought about Lee's surrender. Since the war he has resided in Ashburnham, Cleveland, and this city.
