Sudden death.

--Many of our readers will be shocked to learn of the death of an old and valued citizen, Gen. Charles Dimmock. Gen, Dimmock was in the streets on Tuesday attending to his usual business. That evening he was stricken down by paralysis, and at 12 o'clock that night breathed his last. Gen. Dimmock came to this city from Portsmouth, and soon after was appointed Captain of the Public Guard--a position which he filled with great credit to himself and with entire satisfaction to the Legislature. Some years since he was appointed Superintendent of the State Armory, and at the commencement of the present war applied himself with such zeal and diligence to the preparation and shipment of arms and munitions for the army that he was steadily promoted till he received the commission of Brigadier General. His health has not been good for more than a year; but anxious always to discharge his duty, he was ever at his post. Well may it be said of him that he died with harness on, serving his country and the South.
