BROWN, -- In Rochester, (NH), December 13th, 1863, of diptheria,
Herbert J., son of James and Sarah BROWN, aged 15 years 11 months. His
sickness was of short duration, only ten days, yet from the very first his
heart seemed prepared to receive and embrace the saving truths of a Saviour's
love and redemption through Him, and ever, during his sickness his will was
resigned to the will of God, in his own words, "It will be for the best
whether I live or die." Though his life was numbered by a few years, yet it
seemed to open into a future of great promise, but, God in his providence,
saw fit to unveil that future to him, in the glories of the eternal world,
where the powers of his soul and mind will expand under a Heavenly Father's
care and love and his companionship will be that of angels, and the redeemed
HORN -- At the U.S. Barracks Hospital, New Orleans, Sept 25th.
(1863) of chronic diarrhea. Serg't Joseph D. HORN, of Co. I, 26th Mass.
Regiment, formerly of Rochester. Thus we record the death of another
Lawrence soldier. He was a young man much beloved by his officers and
asociates and in a letter home, Capt. PICKERING says of him: 'He was as
brave a fellow as ever lived; I know this by experience as a soldier with him
in several engagements, and he was always one of my very best men. He
possessed many, very many, good qualities rarely found in young men.-- After
over thirty months in the service of his country, he has fallen a victim to
disease.' Serg't Horn formerly belonged in Rochester, N.H. and when the
rebel cannon around Sumter awoke the loyal North, in April, 1861, he took the
first train for this city, where he volunteered at once to fill one of the
uncalled for uniforms of the Infantry, and left the next morning with the
company. On the return of the regiment he enlisted again with Capt.
Pickering for three years. All who knew him in the three months 'campaign'
through Baltimore' and in the present service, speak of him in the most
glowing words of praise. Humble in position, honorable character, and rich
in love for his country. He has fallen an early martyr to her noble cause.
