No. 56.

Nero Orleans, August 7, 1862.

The Commanding General announces to the Army of the Gulf, the sad event of the death of Brig. Gen. Thomas WILLIAMS, commanding Second Brigade, in camp, at Baton Rouge.

The victorious achievement-the repulse of the division of Major General Breckinridge, by the troops led on by Gen. Williams, and the destruction of the mail-clad Arkansas, by Capt. Porter, of the Navy--is made sorrowful by the fall of our brave, gallant and successful fellow-soldier.

Gen. Williams graduated at West Point in 1837 ; at once joined the 4th Artillery in Florida, where he served with distinction; was thrice brevetted for gallant and meritorious services in Mexico, as a member of Gen. Scott's staff. His life was that of a soldier devoted to his country's service. His country mourns in sympathy with his wife and children, now that country's care and precious charge.

We, his companions in arms, who had learned to love him, weep the true friend, the gallant gentleman, the brave soldier, the accomplished officer, the pure patriot and victorious hero, and the devoted Christian. All, and more, went out when Williams died. By a singular felicity, the manner of his death illustrated each of these generous qualities.

The chivalric American gentleman, he gave up the vantage of the cover of the houses of the city-forming his lines in the open field-lest the women and children of his enemies should be hurt in the fight!

A good general, he made his dispositions and prepared for battle at the break of day, when he met his foe!

A brave soldier, he received his death-shot leading his men !

A pa hero, he was fighting the battle of his country, and died the cheer of victory!

A Christian, he sleeps in the hope of a blessed Redeemer !

His virtues we cannot exceed--his example we may emulate--and, mourning his death, we pray, “ may our last end be like his.”'

The customary tribute of mourning will be worn by the officers in the Department.

BY COMMAND OF MAJOR GENERAL BUTLER :

R. S. DAVIS.

Captain and Acting Assistant Adjutant General.
