Patrick Dillon, of Montpelier, a town charge, who died last week, was a member of Company M, first regiment of Vermont cavalry, in the war of the rebellion, having enlisted from St. Albans. He was wounded in the army and contracted lung disease there, but had never received a pension. He returned to Montpelier last winter from Haverhill, N. H., to have his claim for a pension, which had been pending many years in the pension office, prosecuted. He was unable to labor and had been an inmate of Montpelier's poorhouse, over the hills in Berlin, for some time when he received an order from the pension office to report to the medical board of surgeons at Montpelier for examination. He went to Montpelier three weeks ago to be examined, was taken worse and was unable to undergo an examination or return to the poorhouse.
