Died in Andersonville, Ga., Oct. 9th Sergeant WILLIAM ALBERT WEBSTER, aged 38 years; and at Annapolis, Md., in the hospital, Dec. 23d, NATHAN L. WEBSTER, aged 36, sons of Jesse Webster of Marshfield, both soldiers of Co. A, 4th Reg't of Vermont Volunteers. They were taken prisoners by the rebels, and confined in the pen at Andersonville, Ga., where they suffered by starvation, exposure and consequent disease, until Albert, who had been very patriotic in the Union cause, died in the prison. He leaves a wife and three children in Marshfield, to mourn their great loss. Nathan was finally released, and arrived at Annapolis on the 21st of December, but was so weak and low that he survived only two days after his arrival. He was a citizen of Plainfield, where he leaves a wife to mourn the loss of a dear husband. Aged parents, sisters and brothers also mourn the loss of these martyrs to their country's cause.
