A GALLANT OFFICER DEAD. - Among those killed at the Battle of Cedar Creek, Va., on the 10th ult., was Capt. Edward Hall, of Worcester, who commanded company E in the 8th regiment. In the morning he was shot in the leg during the attack by the rebels under Gen. Early upon our troops under Gen. Sheridan, and while being carried off the field was shot again in the body. He then fell into the hands of the rebels, and was carried over Cedar Creek. When we recovered the lost ground, later in the day, he was found by our troops, and carried to the hospital, where he died, after suffering for ten days. He became connected with the 8th regiment at its formation, and while that regiment was in Louisiana was taken prisoner, remaining in the hands of the rebels for several months. He was a brave man, an excellent officer, a good citizen, and very highly esteemed by all who knew him. He leaves a wife, with two children, and was aged 48 years.
