Burial of Captain Harrison.

--The remains of Capt. John P. Harrison, of the Verina Artillery, reached this city on Saturday evening, by the Central cars, and were followed to Hollywood Cemetery by a large number of friends, including several members of the legal profession. Capt. Harrison was a prominent lawyer in Henrico county, and formerly Commissioner in Chancery. With patriotic devotion, he took up arms in the cause of the South, and was elected to the command of the company above named, a position for which he was well qualitied by study and experience. The miasma of the Peninsula, where he was stationed, brought on an intermittent disease, followed by typhoid fever, and he lately returned to the home of his father-in-law in Hanover county, where he died on Thursday last. Capt. Harrison was a man of high and honorable character, and his death adds another to the list of valuable citizens who have fallen victims in a war for the defence of their home and firesides.
