At Orange Grove, Va., Nov. 27th, Gardiner Fay, of Williamstown, Corp. In Co. I, 10th reg;’t Vt. Volunteers, aged 34 years.

Mr. Fay fell mortally wounded while endeavoring to bear up the flag of his country, in his first active engagement with the enemy, and died in a few hours. But we trust he died a soldier of the Cross. “He was one of my bravest men,” always ready for any duty assigned him,” are expressions that come from his companions in arms. May God bless the widow and the fatherless little ones.
