OBITUARY.---The body of Major ARTHUR BROOKS, of Hamilton, was brought to this city last night, and was taken to Hamilton this morning for burial. He was the son of Rev. W. R. BROOKS, pastor of the Baptist Church in Hamilton. Major BROOKS graduated from Madison University last August, with signal honor, and with the purpose of studying law.-- But, prompted by a strong feeling of patri- otism, and having acquired a knowledge of military science, he raised a company and was elected Captain. His company joined the 36th N.Y. Regiment. Though only 18 years old, by his superi- or courage, and unblemished moral bearing, he rose rapidly to a position of respect, and commanding influence in the Regiment.--- As evidence of this, though among the youngest, he was promoted to the office of Major. It is however supposed that the appointment did not reach him before his death. He died at Yorktown, of typhoid fever. He was both a Patriot and a Chris- tian.
