Caleb Sabin, son of Dea. Samuel Sabin, died of acute Bright's disease June 28, aged sixty-nine years. He was a soldier in the civil war, enlisting from Craftsbury as a corporal in Company B, Third Regiment, and was afterwards made sergeant. He participated in the battles of the peninsular campaign, was wounded at the battle of Savage Station, and contracted asthma at the seven days' fight before Richmond, from which he never recovered. Funeral services took place at the house last Friday and were largely attended. Rev. Mr. McPherson officiated. He paid a just and honorable tribute to the dead, and spoke words of tender comfort to the living. The family wish to extend their gratitude to neighbors and friends for courtesies rendered.
