Obituary. COUNT HACKE--BARON VON STEUBEN Among the victims of this rebellion we have to lament the loss of the brave and accomplished Count HACKE. A native of Prussia, and in the Prussian army, he obtained a furlough, and coming to this country, procured a commission as First Lieutenant in the Seventh (Steuben) New-York Volunteers. He served in that regiment till its term of service ex- pired, and subsequently procured a commission as First Lieutenant in the Fifty-second New-York Vol- unteers, HANCOCK's corps. He fell in the defence of the Union while leading a charge at the head of his company, in the battle of the Wilderness, on the 10th of May. His friend and countryman, the gallant Baron VON STEUBEN, also in the same regiment, was inconsolable on hearing of his fall, and endeavored to get some message from him to his family, but without success; he was speechless and soon after- ward expired.Two days afterward the brave Baron VON STEUBEN himself was killed. Another brave sol- dier gone to his rest. In HERMANN, Count HACKE, the country has lost a brave and gallant soldier, while his kind and gentle heart, modest and unassuming manners endeared him to the many friends who have now to deplore his loss. POPE was a favorite poet of his, and one verse in particular in his "Ode to Solitude:" "Thus let me live, unseen, unknown-- Thus unlamented let me die; Steal from the world, and not a stone Tell where I lie." The latter part was singularly fulfilled, for not long after his death the woods in which he fell were consumed by fire, and no traces of his remains could be discovered. But his epitaph is written in the hearts of a brave people, as a brave and true soldier who fell in battle for a noble cause. Honor the brave. P.
