OBITUARY. GEN. DANIEL ULLMAN. Gen. Daniel Ullman died at Nyack, N.Y., yes- terday morning. Gen. Ullman, LL.D., was a distinguished soldier in the late rebellion and retired from army life with the rank of Major General. He was of French lineage. He was born in Wilmington, Del., on April 29, 1810. His father, John James Ullman, was a descend- ant of several generations of bankers in Stras- burg, Alsace. In early life he visited the United States the year before the close of the American Revolution, and subsequently returning he es- tablished himself in Wilmington, where Daniel was born. The General's mother was Jeanne F. le Franc, who was descended from the le Franc family, different branches of which resided in St. Malo, Angers, and Nantes, in the west of France. M. Victor le Franc, life Senator and several times Minister of France, and his uncle Jean Baptiste Le Franc, the celebrated Girondist, who so nar- rowly escaped the massacre of 1793, were of this ancient family. Gen. Ullman was a graduate of Yale College. He studied law in the office of Henry K. Storrs practice. Before the abolition of the Court of Chancery he was for many years a Master in that court. In 1851 he was the candidate of the Whig Party for Attorney General of the State. The General was one of the founders of the New-York Young Men's Society, from which grew the Young Men's Christian Association. He was also a founder of what is now the Union Club. Gen. Ullman was very active in the political movements of the country. For a long time he exerted a powerful influence, which extended beyond the limits of this State. Notwithstand- ing the difference in their ages, he was a trusted friend of Henry Clay. With him he was a strong advocate of the "American system," and was the Chairman of the committee which caused the celebrated "Clay medal" to be struck in honor of the services of the illustrious states- man. In 1854 Gen. Ullman was the candidate of the American Party for the Governorship of this State. In later years he spoke with much force of what he claimed was an injustice done him in that campaign through misrepresentation.
