Handsome majority. He won a State ifp

then Governor of the State. Ho was ilc-
icaieii ior a re-eieciion in 1857. Tho war
followed soon after and found Mr. Fletcher
a consistent and earnest friend of the government-.

This, for a time, left him estranged from

In nls general characteristics, Mr. Fletch

He was a combative, vigorous debator; a
man of strong passions and prejudices; a
strong man before the people in a political

In his personal relations, Mr. Fletcher
was warm-hearted and generous, and had
many warm friends. His death Is a great
surprise to the people of his State, and will
