Death of General Boughton. WASHINGTON, NOV. 11.--General Horace Boughton, of Texas, died sud- denly in this city Monday. For more than fifteen years General Boughton had been almost an invalid, having sus- tained partial paralysis as a result of re- maining all night in water in passing over a pontoon bridge, in order to reach a division for Burnside's relief. Gen- eral Boughton was born in New York state in 1833, and after serving through the war, attaining the rank of brevet brigadier general, he removed to Texas. He occupied several public offices in that state, and in 1870 was the Demo- cratic nominee for United States senator from Texas, but was defeated.
