Gen. WILLIAM M. GREGG. Gen. William M. Gregg, of Elmira, N.Y., died at the residence of a relative in Tunkhannock, Penn., yesterday morning. He was prominent in the politics of the southern tier, always as a Re- publican. He was a descendant of one of the best families in Chemung County. He raised and com- manded the famous One Hundred and Seventy- ninth Regiment of New-York Volunteers, and was brevetted Brigadier-General for gallant conduct on the field while leading the assault on Fort Damnation, in front of Petersburg, April 25, 1864. In this charge Gen. Gregg was wounded, taken from the field, and reported dead. He was Sheriff of Chemung County in 1855, a Liberal Republican in 1872, and a candidate before the convention last year for Congress. He was in his sixtieth year.
