CAMPBELL, JAMES L. - CAMPBELL, JAMES L. - In the city of New Orleans, of Yellow Fever, on the 17th ult., James L. Campbell, of the house of Sigerson & Campbell, a native of Warren county, Ohio.  We take the following editorial notices from the New Orleans papers, which will afford to his friends the consoling evidence that, although far from his relatives, he died among friends, in the enjoyment of their confidence and respect.--Hamilton Intelligeneer.

Military Funeral - The remains of Captain James L. Campbell, paymaster of 1st Brigade of the Louisiana Militia, were yester morning, borne to their final resting place, escorted by a large military and civic procession.  Amongst the military present we observed Major General Lewis and staff Brigadier General Davis and staff, the commissioned officers of the Legion and Washington Battalion and (white line on film) from their several corps.  Two companies of the Louisiana Volunteers to which regiment the deceased had been attached, accompanied his remains to the cemetery, and fired the customary volleys over his grave.--N. O. Beo.  The remains of the late Capt. James L. Campbell, Paymaster of the 1st Brigade, and Aid to Gen. Horatio Davis, were followed to the tomb yesterday by his late companions in arms, the Lousiana Volunteers, and the officers, of the 1st Brigade together with a very large concourse of citizens.  During his protracted illness he received every attention that friendship could dictate; and when when his spirit abandoned its earthly tenement, his body was borne to its last resting place with every possible demonstartion of respect.  Pesco to his memory.  N. O. Tropic
