In Berlin, Jan. 11, at the residence of Norman D. Sawyer, of chronic diarrhea, Mr. Edmund Holden, Co. D, 3d Vermont Regiment. Mr. Holden, son of J. P. Holden of Elmore, received his discharge on the 28th of December, and started for his home, but being very feeble in health was obliged to stop at the residence of Mr. Sawyer, his brother-in-law, where he lived but a few days. His officers speak in high terms of him as being a brave and true soldier. Peace to his ashes.
