Obituary

KILLED. - We regret to announce the death of Lieut. H. H. Hall, Co. E, 1st Vt. Cavalry. He was killed in one of the fights during Wilson's raid. Lieut. Hall enlisted in Co. L, of the cavalry in Sept. 1862, and was promoted to a Lieutenancy in Co. E, in Feb., 1863. For some time past he had been employed as a staff officer, for which position he was admirably qualified by his superior education. He was graduated from the University of Vermont in1859, winning the highest honors of his class. His death is a heavy blow to his very large circle of friends here, who loved him for his genial disposition, and were happy in the knowledge of his many rare and admirable, intellectual gifts which justified their prediction of his future eminence. - His death is another illustration of which this war has been so full, that the refined and imaginative scholar can face death as heroically as any other who fights beside him.
