In 1859 he resumed his place in the effective ranks, labored faithfully four years, when he was prostrated by hemorrhage of the lungs, and continued to decline in strength by repeated attacks until his death, June 20, 1866. Mr. Chandler possessed rare excellences, a quick mind, fine perceptions, poetic taste, retentive memory, genial temper, and an earnest, practical, sympathetic spirit.
