DEATH OF BRIG. GEN. D. D. BIDWELL. The telegraph despatches which came to us yesterday afternoon, laden with victory to our arms under the gallant Sheridan, also brought the sad intelligence of the death of Brigadier General Daniel D. Bidwell of this city. A ter- rific battle was fought at Cedar Creek on Wed- nesday, the 19th instant, between the forces of Gen. Sheridan and General Longstreet, resulting in a splendid triumph to the Union forces, but alas: in the death of a soldier and an officer whom the people of Buffalo had learned to love him for his earnestness in his country's cause, and for the sublime courage he had displayed on many a bloody field. With the joyful notes of victory came blended the harsher ones which spoke of a terrible sacrifice in the loss of General Daniel D. Bidwell, one of Buffalo's ablest and bravest representatives in the Union Army; and need it be wondered that our people considered the vic- tory almost too dearly won? More than a passing tribute is due to the la- mented dead, and we feel how utterly incompe- tent we are to do justice, in a brief sketch, to the memory of one whose military career has been so glorious. Brigadier General Daniel D. Bid- well, was the son of Benjamin Bidwell, Esq., for many years the leading ship-builder in this city, and was born in the village of Black Rock.
