Lieut. Humphrey H. Mites.

--The mortal remains of this lamented officer were conveyed from their late residence on Union Hill on Saturday last to the Leigh Street Baptist Church, where a most impressive and affecting discourse was delivered by Rev. J. Lansing Burrows. The funeral cortege, which, by its numbers, evinced the respect with which the deceased was regarded, proceeded to Hollywood Cemetery, attended by the Masonic fraternity and Knights Templar, where the body was interred with the ceremonies usual on such solemn occasions. The deceased officer, who lost his life while engaged with his comrades in repelling the assault of the enemy at the battle of Manassas last Thursday, was a native of this city, and leaves a widow and several children to mourn the sad fortune of war, which has ruthlessly torn from them their natural protector.
