THE DEATH OF YOUNG MCKENZIE Capt. Balsdon arrived here last evening with the body of Clarence D. McKenzie, drummer of Company D, 13th regiment, and gives the follow- ing particulars in regard to the manner of his death: It appears he was sitting on the floor with his back to the wall, playing with his broth- er, and one of the members of Company B was practising the manual of arms, when in the mo- tion of the charge bayonets, the hammer must have caght in his belt , and the piece went off, the ball striking the floor about two feet from the wall, entered the wall, and bounding back, enter- ed his back and passed right through his body, burying itself in a blanket at his feet. No blame can be attached to the man who shot him individ- ually, as he was perfectly ignorant of the piece being loaded. The members of Company D, at home and the 13th regiment home guard are re- quested to attend his funeral from the house, 23 Liberty street, on Friday adfternoon at 3 o'clock. The members of Engine Co. No. 6 and Hose Co. No. 7 are also requested to attend by his parents.
