The death of General John B. Murray will be learned with profound regret by hundreds of Central and Western New York. A gal- lant soldier, an able lawyer, a faithful official, a good citizen--he had in all these capacities made for himself a splendid name throughout all the sections. Frank, courageous and courteous, his fellow-citizens knew where to find him upon every public question, but they respected him as one who preserved the amenities even where his dif- ferences with them were most pronounced. Fulfilling conscientiously all the duties of life, he has left behind him a fragrant and an en- during memory. He was stricken unto death at the moment he was ardently advocating the political principles in which he believed and for which he had contended on the field of battle and in the civic arena. He died as he would have wished to die, testifying in his latest utterances to the faith which he held. Peace to his ashes.
