Among the brave, self-sacrificing soldiers that fell from the effects of the disaster on the Mound City, was THOMAS HENRY WYNKOOP, the son of Thomas Wynkoop, Esq., of Bucks county, Pennsylvania. At the time of its organization, he was a member of the 104th Pennsylvania regiment, but when a call was made by the Government for volunteers to man our gunboats on the Western waters, he was one of the first to offer his services, and from the time that boat left Cairo he was with her through contest and victory, till the day of his death upon the White river, Arkansas. [June 17th, 1862-chw] He died in his twenty first year, and beside twenty five of his comrades, his mortal remains rest, on the banks of the Mississippi. The tidings of his death brought gloom to many a household, and the hearts of relatives, and a large circle of friends are now deeply in sympathy with the sadly afflicted family, from whom had been taken a son, whose character was adorned with many natural gifts. May the same God, who gave him, with all his loveliness of character, sustain the bereaved ones in the hour of this, their heavy trial.--Communicated.
