Lieut. Col. Albert V. Colburn of the regular army, whose sudden death at St. Louis on the 18th, last, has been announced, was a Vermonter, a native of Rutland county. He was a member of Maj. Gen. McClellan's staff so long as McClellan was in command, and was then transferred to the staff of Maj. Gen. Schofield. These positions attest his high reputation as an officer.
