Obituary

A BRAVE SOLDIER GONE. - Among those killed in the late battle at Fredericksburg was Amos W. Bennett, of Montpelier, Orderly Sergeant of Company F, 2d regiment, the writer of a letter, signed, "Sergeant," published by us some weeks since. He had been in every engagement of the Army of the Potomac, and had particularly distinguished himself for bravery, and good conduct, receiving both encomiums and promotion from his superior officers. The sad news of his death was received with unfeigned regret by all who knew him, and has plunged a fond mother, a father, and numerous friends, into the deepest affliction.
