Clarence Fendall died in active service at Norfolk, Virginia, on the 18th of September, being at the time of his last illness in command of the schooner Hassler, and of a hydrographic party. He was favorably known among his associates in the work by his amiable disposition, and, to those with whom he was assigned to cooperate, by constitutional activity, industry, and commendable zeal in the progress of any work given into his charge. Among the assistants whose services were recognized as useful in furthering military and naval operations during the late war, none was more conspicuous than Mr. Fendall. His services as topographer, during the siege of Vicksburg, were repeatedly recognized by Admiral Porter. While in that service Mr. Fendall contracted a form of disease that afterward became chronic, and thus his death was hastened.
