DEATH OF A VOLUNTEER.--Charles Ma- son, of Brookfield, a private in Company I, Twenty-Sixth Regiment, died in the Hospital, at Alexandria, on Sunday last. He enlisted at this place. Mr. Mason had been sick for some time, and in a letter from our correspondent, some weeks since, said he was dying by inches and that he ought to be sent home. We hear that his remains will be brought to Brookfield for interment. They will probably pass through this place on Saturday.
ON Sunday morning last, the body of Mr. Mason, a member of the 26th Regi- ment of N.Y.S. Volunteers, who was ex- pected nearly two weeks ago, was brought into this village, and left at the Cabinet Ware Rooms, where it remained until Mon- day morning, when it was removed to the Presbyterian Church, where it remained until its removal to Clarkville. The coffin was very handsomely decorated with flow- ers, contributed by the ladies of the village, and the American Flag in mourning. At 10 o'clock A.M., a few of our citizens as- sembled at the Church, and after a few ap- propriate remarks and prayer, by the Rev. Mr. Hunt, the body was conveyed to Clark- ville. A portion of the Clinton Seymour Artillery, our Martial Band and also the Waterville Brass Band escorting them. At Clarkville, there were further religious ser- vices and the body was then buried with Military honors.
