DEATH OF CAPT. HARPER-Capt. David Harper, formerly of Co. D. 9th Iowa Infantry, and recently and for two years past, clerk in the Land office at Washington, died in that city Jan. 30th. We have no particulars of his death beyond the announcement in the Washington papers. His family, we understand, are, or were recently, in Pennsylvania. Capt. Harper was for several years a resident of Scotch Grove in this county and Anamosa and was a kind and genial man and a lawyer by profession. When the 9th Iowa Infantry, the pet regiment of the state, was being raised by two companies from this county joined it, Capt.-afterwards Major-Carpenter commanding Co. B. and Capt. Harper Co. D. Both these commanders are now dead and from disease contracted in the service. Capt. H. leaves many warm friends among us.
