Gov. Harvey, of Wisconsin . . .

. . . was drowned at Savannah, Tenn., on last Sunday Evening while passing from one boat to another. This is a sad affair. Gov. Harvey cheered the hearts of Wisconsin boys by his presence among them after the great battle of Shiloh, and was deeply loved by them. His loss at this time is a great calamity to his State.
