Death of a Police Officer. -- Mr. Jason E. Upham, who was attached to the Second Station, died at his residence on Brook avenue at 9 o'clock yesterday morning of consumption, after an illness of six months duration. Mr. Upham was a native of Weathersfield, Vt., and was 38 years of age. He enlisted in the Twenty-second Regiment, M.V.M., and served with that organization during the war, receiving a severe wound at Gaines's Mills, which was thought at the time to be fatal. He was appointed on the police in 1869, and assigned to the Second Station. Mr. Upham was a faithful officer, having a larger share of patience than most of the men occupying his position; a genial friend, and a kind husband and father; and his pleasant face will be missed among his associates, as indeed it has for the past few months. He leaves a wife and one child.
