Death of Lieut. Barber. – We learn with sorrow of the death of Lieut. B.M. Barber of Co. K, 5th Vt. Vols. , which took place at Fortress Monroe July 20th. Lieut. Barber was a Richmond boy, and a nephew of Mr. Safford Bronson, of that town. He was wounded in the hip at Savage's Station, taken prisoner, suffered greatly by neglect of the rebel surgeons, was paroled, brought down to Fortress Monroe on the U.S. transport Louisiana and died on board the steamer. He was quite young, under 21 years, stood high, at home and in the army, and will be mourned by many sorrowing friends.
