At a meeting of the officers of the 25th Regiment, N. Y. S. N. G., held on
the 13th instant, the following resolutions were adopted:
Resolved, That this regiment has heard, with deep sorrow, of the death of one
of its late members, Capt. Douglass Lodge, of the 43d N. Y. S. V., who fell gloriously
in defence of his country's flag and honor, at Fredericksburg.
Resolved, That we sincerely sympathize with his parents and family in their hour
of bereavement. That as a mark of respect to his memory the regiment will attend
his funeral and perform for him the last sad rites of a soldier.
Resolved, That these resolutions be published, and copies thereof be transmitted
to the family of the deceased.
JAMES I. JOHNSON,
Governor Morgan was serenaded at Albany on Friday night by the Twenty-fifth
regiment, and addressed the soldiers as follows:
" Soldiers: Although yon were not at Richmond to assist our advanced army
in driving the rebels from their fortifications there—as you were not at
Corinth to take part in that brilliant action —yet you will be ready for
any emergency—for any duty—where your co-operation may be demanded.
And may the day not be distant when the old flag of the Union, under which
the Twenty-fifth and the soldiers of the loyal states move forward to battle
and to victory, will float over every Capitol in the republic, as it did in
the past —as it will in the future."
