The Demise and Burial of Maj.
G. W. Kelso, of the 9thTehn.
Tho death of tho one whoso name
heads this articlo was a man in whoso
bosom dwelt tho purest emotions a
gentleman in every senso ot tho word,
an accomplished officer and a true
Christian. Maj. Kelso departed this
life at tho residence of Mr. John G.
.Brazelton, near this place, on Saturday
night last after lingering 15 weeks.
Ilia disease was Chronic Diarrhea.
Tho subject of this notice, when the
war broke out, volunteered as a pri
vate in the county of Haywood, in tho
"Western District, and as a soldier in
ra'.iks deported himself in such a man
fver as to call forth universal praise.
Hi? "brrothron in arms," having tho
utmost confidence in his integrity and
rbility, elected him to tho high and ro
ponsiblo position of Major. To say
that ho acted his part nobly and gal.
lantly, wo need only refer to tho battle-field
of Pcrryvillo. On the mem
orable occasion rf the 8th of October,
1862, when the desperato chargo was
made by Maney's Brigade, no officer in
tho Confederate army acted more
bravely than did Maj. K. During the
battlo tho Lieut. Col., who was in com
mand of tho 9th, was wounded, conse
quently it fell upon Maj. K. to lead on
the regiment against the minions who
were pouring forth their shot and shell
araon the sons of the South who drove
the dastardl cowards before them like
,tho hurricane tho leaves of tho forest.
True to his. men, truo to his country,
and truo to his God, tho daring Major
bore el6ft tho glorious instincts ot tho
devoted patriot, and amid tho dreadful
carnage he was evor mindful of thoRo
high prerogatives devolving upon him.
His funeral obsequies took place on
Sunday evening. Not having the num
ber of companies required for tho mili
tary escort, tho Provost Guard, under
command of Lieut. James, 3d Confeder
ate Regiment, attended tho funeral to
pay respect duo to their deceased broth
er in arms s Tho military pall-bearers
were composed of Col. Jt.M. Cox, Com
mandant Post, Capt. J. W. Butler, Post
Commissary, Lt. Sam'I L. Gannaway,
formerly of the 6th Tonn., Col. March
and Greon Brazelton, of Franklin coun
ty. Everything was conducted with
great solemnity, and tho last that re
mained ofMaj. K. , wore) consigned to
tho narrow limits of the tomb, there to
remain until Gabriel' trump shall sum
t Wc, tho Senior, promised in
