Obituary

We learn with regret of the death of A.M. Nevins of Co. G, 6th Vt. Reg't. The intelligence was first brought here by a private dispatch to J. W. Ellis, Esq., stating that his remains left Baltimore at 5 o'clock this morning. The cause of his death we have not learned.

Lieut. Nevins went from Moretown. He was one of the most substantial and influential citizens of that town, and well and favorably known beyond its limits. Several well written letters to our column, over his signature, "A.M.N." were from his ready pen. The community in which he lived, and a wide circle of acquaintances will mourn his death.
