Died In Camp

Just as we go to press we learn that Mr. Isaac Debusk of Capt. Cummings company is dead. He is the father of Wm. Debusk who was killed at the battle of Pea Ridge. He has been on the sick list for some time, and grief for the loss of his son is said to have very much hastened the father’s death. Another of his sons died in camp at Rolla, sometime since. So the father’s death makes three from that family whose deaths lay at the door of the traitors, who are seeking to destroy the Government. – Winterset Madisonian.
