NOTICES OF THE DEAD Col. GUILFORD D. BAILEY, Chief of Artillery, who fell early in the action, was a graduate of West Point, in the class of 1856, where he maintained an excellent standing, receiving an appointment as Second Lieu- tenant in the Second Artillery, from which he was promoted to a Captaincy on the 3d of last Au- gust, subsequently receiving a commission as Colonel of Volunteers. He was an ac- tive young man, of bright and quick intellect, who left a most favorable impression on my mind in the brief intercourse I had with him. I shall not soon forget his bright, cheerful face, which greeted me on the morning of Saturday; nor that other scene, when, on the evening of the same day, I beheld his dead body, covered with blood from the wound which had so suddenly cut short his life.
COL. BAILEY.--Col. GUILFORD D. BAILEY, of the First N.Y. Artillery, who fell in the battle before Richmond on Saturday last, was well known in Central and Northern New York. His father, D.S. BAILEY, was for years the Editor and Proprietor of the Lewis County Republican, at Martinsburg, where the Colonel was born. He was a practical printer, and will be remembered by the typos of Utica as at one time em- ployed in the office of the DAILY OBSERVER. We remember him as a young man of un- usual intelligence and spirit and of high purpose. Soon after leaving Utica, he en- tered the West Point Academy, where he remained four years, graduating in 1856. In 1858, he married a daughter of Major PATTEN. After his graduation, he served in Florida, in garrisoning Fort Ontario, as an instructor in the West Point School; and the opening of the rebellion found him in Texas. He entered into the war for the maintenance of the Union and the Constitution with great zeal. Serving at Fort Pickens and in the Bull Run battle, he was subsequently appointed Colonel of the First New York Artillery, composed of Companies from Central New York. At the time of his death, he was chief of Ar- tillery in Gen. CASEY'S Division. He was twenty-nine years of age. He died honor- ably, leaving a good name behind him. A wife and two children, besides other rela- tives who were deeply attached to him mourn his loss. And hosts of friends mourn with them. The Union Army has met with no small loss.
