DEATHS IN THE HOSPITALS
The number of deaths at the several Hospitals in this town since our last has been quite large, but we are pleased to perceive that the burials are now conducted with more ceremony and solemnity than they were at first. Squads of the 29th Pennsylvania Regiment, which is on provost duty in the town, attend the funerals, and pay to the deceased soldiers the usual honors of war, while the Rev’d. Mr. EDWARDS, Rector of St. John's Parish, has also in several instances read the solemn and impressive burial ceremony of the Episcopal church at the grave. The following is a list of those who have died since our last publication, as furnished by Mr. Lane, the Undertaker:—

"Warrior rest ! your toils are ended—-
Life’s last fearful strife is over;
Clarion-calls, with death-notes blended
Shall disturb your ears no more!
Peaceful is your dreamless slumber—
Peaceful,— but how cold and stern
You have joined that silent number
In the land where none return!”
