We regret the death of Lieutenant James L. Lamb, of Montpelier, and was not unknown to the people of Burlington, having been a frequent visitor there. During the late war he served as Commissary Sergeant for the 13th Vermont Regiment; held the same post in the 17th Vermont Regiment for a time, and then promoted to 1st Lieutenant of the same Regiment. By his geniality and urbanity, he won many friends who will mourn his loss. Mr. Lamb was engaged in business in N.Y., but making a hurried visit to Montpelier, was there seized with rheumatic fever.
