The late General Dimmock.

This most amiable and most lamented gentleman leaves a void which it will be difficult to fill. He was one of the best and most faithful of all Virginia's public servants. He had been in her service nineteen years when he died, having been made Captain of the Public Guard by Gov. McDowell, in 1844. In private life he was a most accomplished gentleman and amiable man — the model of a husband, father, master, and associate. The State and society have lost deeply by his death. It came upon his friends like a thunderclap, not having been at all expected.
