Gen. Frederick W. Lander, whose recent
brilliant and successful charge at the head of
his troops at Paw Paw, Western Virginia,
electrified the country, died in his camp yester-
day afternoon, from congestion of the brain,
superinduced, undoubtedly, by the debilitating
effects of the wound he received near Ed-
wards�s Ferry, in his reconnoissance the day
after the fall of Col. Baker. The country
loses, in the death of Gen. Lander, one of its
bravest and most energetic officers, and one
who had given the highest promise of valuable
service in this its time of greatest need.
