Death of Gen. W. P. Howard.

The telegraph wires brought to this place, on Tuesday morning last, the sad intelligence of the death of the above named fellow-citizen and Georgian, which transpired in Athens, Ala., on the same morning.  Cause, fever.

Gen. H. was a gentleman in the very prime of manhood, healthy and robust in appearance, and possessed of fine intellectual capacity.  He was engaged in teaching music, in which he was thoroughly accomplished, and had a class in this place which he was instructing, and was also Professor of Music in the Atlanta Female College.  He was very happily constituted in rendering himself agreeable to children. For him they cherished the kindest feelings.  He will be buried in Atlanta, with Masonic honors, today or tomorrow, agreeable to his dying request. [Resolutions of Respect can be found on page 2 of the August 14, 1868 issue.]
