OBITUARY. PATRICK HENRY JONES. Patrick Henry Jones, a retired brigadier-general, U.S.V., died at his home, in Ann-st., Port Richmond, Staten Ismand, on Monday evening, after an illness of four years. General Jones was born in Westmeath, Ireland, on November 20, 1830, and came to America in 1840 with his parents, who settled in the upper part of New-York State. After working on a farm for a few years he read law, and was admitted to the bar in 1856 and practised in Ellicotville, N.Y., until the outbreak of the Civil War. He then en- tered the 37th New-York Volunteers as second lieu- tenant, and subsequently became adjutant and major of the same regiment and later colonel of the 154th New-York Volunteers. On December 4, 1864, he was commissioned brigadier-general, and remained in the service until the close of the war when he resigned and resumed the practice of his profession, at Ellicottville. In 1865 General Jones was elected clerk of the Court of Appeals, which position he held for three years. He was a staunch Republican, and on April 1, 1869, was appointed Postmaster of New-York City and served as such during Grant's first term, after which he again practised law, and in 1875 he was appointed Register of the city and county of New-York and held the position for three years. A widow and four sons survive him. The funeral will be held this morning at St. Mary's Church, Port Richmond.
