Death of a Soldier. Gen. Kenner Garrard, the well- known cavalry leader, who died at Cincinnati last Thursday, was a brother of Col. J. Garrard of Cato, in this county, and was 49 years of age. He was a Kentuckian by birth, but a life long resident of Cin- cinnati. He graduated at West Point in 1851. In 1861, Captain Garrard was with the troops under General Twiggs, in Texas, surren- dered to the rebels, remaining un- der parole until September, 1862, resisting every opportunity of his comrades to prove faithless to his country. He made his way to Washington with $20,000 of gov- ernment funds in his pocket, which was safely turned over to the gov- ernment. He was appointed com- mandant at West Point in December, 1861, where he remained until released from his parole. Sunsequently as Colonel of the One Hundred and Forty- sixth N.Y. Vols., he took part in the battles of Fredericksburg, Chan- cellorsville and Gettysburg. After the latter fight he was made Briga- dier-General of Volunteers, and Major of the Third United States Cavalry. In December 1863, he was made chief of the Cavalry Bu- reau at Washington, but was the next month, at his own request, re- lieved from that duty to take com- mand of the Second Division of Cavalry in the Army of the Cum- berland, under General Sherman. General Garrard took an active part in General Sherman's campaign, from its commencement to the bat- tle of Atlanta. He participated in the battle of Nashville, under Gen- eral Thomas. Since the war he has lived in quiet in Cincinnati. He was a man of large wealth and re- fined tastes.
