A thrilling scene is related of one of the Massachusetts
men, who was mortally wounded at Baltimore
by the mob on the afternoon of the fatal nineteenth of April.
He soon bled to death, notwithstanding every effort was made to save him An instant before he expired he rose, struggling with death, and, standing erect, he fixed his glassy eyes upon every person in the room, and then lifting them towards heaven, and raising his right hand, he exclaimed, with clear voice, “All hail to the Stars and Stripes!!”
Saying this, he fell back into the arms of his physician, and expired.
This patriotic declaration of the dying man so thrilled the lookers-on, that all but his immediate attendants turned silently away, although many of them were stained with the blood of the deceased.--N. Y. Herald, May 5
