The remains of Brig. Gen. Robert S. Garnett
were brought to Baltimore
on the 18th inst., by Adams
& Co.'s Express.
Messrs. Benjamin M. Garnett
(his cousin) and C. K. Hodges
discharged the melancholy duty of receiving them.
They were deposited, (as the most suitable place at present,) in the Mausoleum at Greenmount Cemetery, there to await the future arrangements of his more immediate relatives.
Aletter says:--‘"I am glad to be able to say, that he was remarkably well cared for, his body having been placed in an excellent metallic coffin enclosed in a substantial box. With a view to see if anything further was necessary for the preservation of the corpse, we had the coffin opened and found nothing needed, it being in excellent condition.
The fatal wound he received must have been as stated in the papers; the hole in the breast being quite visible, about an inch in length, and half an inch wide."’ The Baltimore Exchange, in a brief notice on the occasion, says:--‘"General Garnett
was widely known, and was everywhere esteemed as a gallant officer and an honorable gentleman.
He died where a brave soldier ever looks to meet his end — on the field of battle — and he leaves behind him a stainless name."’
