Another Prominent Actor in the Civil War Mustered Out.
LYNCHBURG, Va., March 3.--Gen. Jubal A. Early died last night at 10:30. He passed away in the presence of his family and physician, his kindred and several intimate friends. The old General seemed aware of his approaching end early in the day. Before noon he called for the morning papers, as was his invariable custom, and attempted to read, but found that his sight was failing. Soon after, he extended his hand to Senator Daniel and calmly said: "I want to tell you good-bye Major. He then told his nephew, Cabell Early, farewell, after which he dropped into a quiet slumber.
Later in the day the dying veteran asked Senator Daniel not to leave the room, as he wanted to talk with him about certain arrangements, but from that time he suffered such intense pain that he did not revive the subject. He met death unflinchingly, with his hand resting quietly in Senator Daniel's.
Gen. Early was born in Franklin County, Va., November 3, 1816, was educated at West point; was an officer in the Mexican war; became a noted confederate general in the civil war, and was later known in connection with the Louisiana lottery.
