Obituary

We notice with regret, among the casualties published elsewhere the wounding of our esteemed and popular correspondent - Henry M. Smith, Co. B, 4th Vermont Regiment, both legs amputated. He is a ready writer and a christian soldier, and his letters have been of interest to all our readers, who will mourn with us his deep misfortune.
