GEN. NELSON SHAURMAN. Gen. Nelson Shaurman, a well-known and widely respected citizen of Brooklyn, died on Sun- day evening at his residence, No. 429 Henry-street, in that city. Gen. Shaurman was born in this country, and commenced life as a carpenter. In 1858 he became a Police Captain, but resigned to enter the Army in 1861. He served all through the war, was wounded twice, and was mustered out in 1866, with the brevet rank of Brigadier-General. After leaving the Army Gen. Shaurman took an active part in Brooklyn politics, and was elected City Auditor. He was at one time wealthy, but his affairs, from lack of busi- ness tact, became disarranged and he lost all his money. Desertion by his political friends followed his loss of wealth, and in 1877 he was forced to ac- cept a position as Excise Inspector at a small salary. He performed his work faithfully, and was in the Excise office on Saturday morning. The heat affected him, and he complained of feeling unwell during the day. On Sunday he took to his bed, and in the evening died, apparently without any pain. Gen. Shaurman was 60 years of age. The funeral services will take place at his late resi- dence at 4 o'clock this afternoon.
