In a cavalry fight on the 10th instant, at Middletown, Va., Paul Dumas of Co. I, 1st Vt. Cavalry, was instantly killed, being shot through the head. Three others of the same company were killed in the same fight. Dumas was from this village, and well known to our citizens and those of St. Albans and Montpelier as a skillful photographist, formerly in the employ of Charles Miller. His death will be universally regretted.
