CASTLETON -- KILLED NEAR PETERSBURG, VA. -- Daniel, son of D. W. Fox, of Castleton, aged 19 years. He was a private in the Twenty-fourth New York Cavalry regiment. In a letter from one of his tent mates, he says, Daniel was a good soldier, always prompt to obey orders, and at all times ready and willing to do his duty, and has been in every engagement which the regiment was in. On the 18th of June, when engaged in making a charge across a field to a railroad, under a heavy fire from the enemy, he was struck in the head by a ball, and instantly killed.
