A correspondent of the Rutland Herald, from Ship Island, one of the 8th Vt., we infer, says that on the passage out, on the 1st of April, Frank Price, of Co. I, a native of Vergennes, died from an accidental wound received in New York which partially severed the femoral artery. When about ten days out, secondary hemorrhage occurred during a storm when he was asleep, and it was impossible to raise him.
