The gallant dead.
--Lieutenant James R. Kent
, of the 24th Regiment of Virginia Volunteers, died of typhoid fever on the 4th of September, at the residence of Mr. John Fairfax
, near Fairfax Station.
He was a graduate of the Virginia Military Institute, and had returned to his home in Pulaski county
but a few months before the war broke out. He was among the first to respond to the call of his native State, and a correspondent informs us that on every occasion when exposed to danger he exhibited the greatest coolness and most dauntless courage.
He was but 23 years of age, yet his military knowledge would have done credit to a veteran.
