DüPcy, Coinpany K, Fourth Michigan, was instautly killed on Friday last." As yet we have no particulars, but we say without hesitation that Capt. DePuy died at bis post, with his faeo to the foe, and in the discharge of bis duty. Tho announcement of bis fate brought sad news to a wife and childreo, who rcceive, however, the sympatliy of the whole coaiinunity. Ciipt. DePüy enlisted in the " Barry Guards," n whieh company he recoived a commission of Lieutenant. His atteu tion to duty soon securcd liiin the confidence of his superior officers, and on tbc resignation of Capt. Ciiane he was proraoted to the Captaincy of Couipaiiy K, in which position he had won an enviable reputation, tngother wiih the lovo of bis men. He was a kind husband and father, a trae patriot, and filis a patriot's grave. The flags of our city wero lowered to half-mast on receipt of the intelligeuce of his death. He was killed in the battle of Gaines' HUI, June 27th.
