Norfolk, Sept. 26, 1861. I am pained to mention the death of First Lieut. Wm. T. Nimmo, of the Norfolk Light Artillery Blues, which occurred suddenly yesterday morning at the camp at Sewell's Point, in the 53th year of his age. He was highly respected in Norfolk, his native city, for his amiable and gentlemanly qualities.--His death, in the vigor of manhood, and at a time when zealously engaged in the service of his country, is greatly regretted by his brother soldiers and by the citily Germans.--The Cumberland, it will be remembered, was at the Navy-Yard until the night of the fire, and left with the Pawnee after the incendiary torch was applied. The remains of Lieut. Nimmo, whose death I mentioned above, have arrived from Sewell's Point in the steamer William Selden. They were received by detachments of the Norfolk Junior Volunteers, Richmond Grays, Norfolk Light Artillery Blues, and Petersburg Greys, and will be escorted to their last resting-place this afternoon.
