Lieutenant Geosge C. Jefferyes Johnson, of the 99th Regiment, who was killed in action during the battle of Ginghilova (A.pril 2), was the second son of William Johnson, Esq., of Vosterburg >, near Cork, his father being a deputy -lieutenant of that county, in which the family had resided for more than two centuries. The late Lieutenant Johnson, although only twenty-seven years of age, had had command of a company for some months, his captain having been promoted, and when Lord Chelmsford inspected the troops on the banks of the Tagela, his youthful appearance seemed to astonish the general, who, however, named quite satisfied when informed that the young officer, besides being leader of his company, was musketry-instructor of the regiment. When poor Johnson received his death wound he was endeavouring to steady and restrain the too fervid enthusiasm of his men (all of them young soldiers), and to prevent them wasting their ammunition.
