Drowned. --Geo. W. Durst, who served in the Palmetto Regiment through the Mexican war, was drowned in the canal, near Augusta, Ga., on the 4th ult., while repairing a dam. The deceased acted well his part as a soldier in all the distinguished conflicts in which his regiment was engaged in Mexico, and received on his return home the medal awarded for gallantry by his generous State. At the Garita de Belin, in the heat of the combat, and whilst the men of Drum's Battery were being annihilated by the enemy, he several times constituted one of a number that volunteered from the South Carolina Regiment to aid that gallant officer in manning his gun; and when the last man of the Battery, and the heroic Captain himself had fallen, and several of the Palmettos besides, Durst was still standing at the gun.
