Obituary

OBITUARY -- We are pained to notice the death, at his father's house in Montpelier, on the 20th inst., of Charles W. Randall, aged about twenty-two years.

Young Randall followed his father's fortune in the old 2d Vermont, was Sergt. Major and 2d Lieutenant in the 13th, and 1st Lieutenant in the 17th, thus growing up as it were, in the army. He was one of the victims of Dr. Blackburn's infamous plots to infect our soldiers, and suffered terribly from the worst form of smallpox. It is believed that his constitution was so impaired by the disease that it may really be called the cause of his death.
