A private dispatch received at St. Albans gives the sad intelligence of the death, Saturday last, in Europe, of Mr. Eugene Putnam, formerly Gov. Smith's private secretary. Mr. Putnam was from Woodstock. He was a member of the 7th squadron R. I. Cavalry during the early part of the war and afterwards a very efficient clerk for Adj. Gen. Washburn. He then became secretary to the Trustees and Managers of the Vermont Central and Vermont & Canada roads, and also secretary and treasurer of the National Car Company, and after resigning these offices he accepted a responsible position in the Pullman Palace Car Company, and was stationed in Chicago. Some two years ago he went to England, in company with Mr. Pullman, and ever since then has been engaged in introducing the Pullman cars upon European roads. Mr. Putnam was a very competent business man, and has left a large number of friends wherever he has lived.
