NEW-JERSEY The family of Col. BURR PORTER, of New- ark, have been advised by a French physician of his death from the effects of a bullet wound in the breast, received during a skirmish against the Prussians. His remains were interred with military honors, and the letter states that when urging his men to the fatal charge he shouted, "I will show you how we fight in America." The deceased was the son of Rev. BURR BALD- WIN, of Montrose, Penn., and at an early age was adopted by his uncle, B.H. PORTER, of New- ark. He was a graduate of Rutgers College, New-Brunswick, and studied law under Judge PEABODY, of New-York. He was attached to OMAR PASHA's staff during the Crimean war, and was also made Colonel of regiment of Arabs. He served in Virginia on Gen. FREMONT's staff during our own late war, and afterward had command of a Massachusetts cavalry regiment. Col. PORTER was about forty years old, and his death will be deeply regretted by a large circle of friends, to whom he was much endeared.
