OBITUARY. - Died at Brandon, December 27th, 1870, Capt. Darwin A. Smalley. At the commencement of the war he entered the army as a Lieutenant in the 1st Vermont Volunteers, and at the mustering out of that regiment, after a service of three months, not feeling that his whole duty had been performed, he re-enlisted in the 7th, and was promoted to a captaincy, which position he held during the rebellion.
Under the care of a kind Providence he was restored to his friends, but with shattered health from the exposure and hardship of three years of service.
A true soldier, ever ready to perform his duties bravely and faithfully, whether on the march, in camp, or in the line of battle.
As a pleasant and genial companion he will be remembered by many, who now offer their heartfelt sympathy to his stricken wife and family.
