      Tobique River (Victoria Co.) Oct. 28 - Peter McDOUGAL, one of the last, if not the very last survivor of the War of 1812, died at the residence of his son Arthurette on Sept. 29th, age 90 years. I am not quite certain whether he was in the 104th Regt., but the record of that famous body would show.

      Peter was a bugler.
