and causing one of the most fearful wounds ever recorded. The brave and unfortunate young man lay in most horrible agony, raving from pain a great portion of the time, from the moment of receiving his wound till 8 o'clock this morning, when he was relieved from his sufferings by death. He said to a friend, as he lay writhing in agony, that he was not afraid to die; he only wished that death might come soon to rid him of the dreadful pain he suffered. The deceased was from Reading, Pennsylvania, and had been in service since the opening of the war, having served with Capt. Durell in the three months volunteers. In September, 1861 the present Durell's battery was sworn into the service of the United States, and has since been constantly employed. All who have come in contact with Lieut McIlvain pronounce him a young man of remarkable promise and most excellent qualities, social and otherwise, and one who would have made a noteworthy mark in the world had he been spared.
