The Montpelier Freeman announces the death of Charles Loomis, Esq., of consumption, which event took place at the residence of Joseph A, Prentiss, Esq., on Monday evening last. Mr. Loomis was the son of the late Hon. Juduthan Loomis, of Montpelier. He graduated from the University of Vermont in 1849, and afterward taught several years in the South. He studied law with the late F. F. Merrill, of Montpelier, and was admitted to the practice of his profession in this county. he has practiced law in Cleveland and Cincinnati, and lately in New York City.
He served honorably in the late war against treason, having entered the service early as a volunteer, was promoted to a captaincy, and afterward had a position on the staff of Gen. Stuart, of Chicago, in which capacity he participated in the battles of Shiloh, and Arkansas, Post, and various smaller engagements. He was in the service nearly two years, leaving when Gen. Stuart left. His superior officers, Gen. Sherman among them, have borne testimony to his bravery and good conduct as a soldier.
Mr. Loomis was a young man of rare ability, and a genial, pleasant, entertaining gentleman, whose death will be mourned by a large circle of friends. His health began to fail last summer, but he kept about his business until September, when the disease had made such progress that he came to his old home, in the vain hope the pure air and careful and loving attention would stay the progress of his malady. His disease has since been rapid.
