 MILITARY FUNERAL at Launceston
 
 The remains of Sergeant Wright, of the 96th Regiment, were convoyed to the grave on Tuesday. The full band of the 11th attended the funeral, and numbers of the inhabitants accompanied the procession. It was gratifying to observe the respect shown by the 11th Regiment, to the memory of one who belonged to an other corps.
