William Anderson, whose unexpected death at New York City is announced in our columns today, was the eldest son of our respected townsman, Capt. William Anderson of the Transportation Company. He was born and educated in Burlington, but soon after leaving high school went to Manchester, N. H., where he acquired the business of a machinist, in the famous Amoskeag works. He afterward moved to Montreal, where he remained in the employ of Brewster and Company, lumber dealers until 1861, when he at once returned home and enlisted in the U. S. Navy, where he soon attained the position of Assistant Engineer. He took part in the siege of Charleston, and was also at the battle of Mobile Bay.

Since the war he has resided in New York, where he has been employed as an engineer. Mr. Anderson was of a generous, social disposition and fair talents, and was a general favorite with his old schoolmates and friends. His loss is the more severe to his afflicted parents and family, as it is hardly a year since they buried their younger son.
