Chaplain appointed. --We learn with great pleasure that his Excellency the Governor, has commissioned Right Reverend John Teeling, D. D., officiating priest of St. Peter's Cathedral, in Richmond, Chaplain of the active volunteer force of the State. Father Teeling was requested to report for duty, and hold himself in readiness. His rank as Chaplain is that of a Captain of Cavalry. A few days since, he was assigned to duty at Manassas Junction, and left yesterday morning for the field of his future labor, accompanied by the heartfelt prayers of his large congregation, many of whom accompanied their spiritual father to the cars, to wish him God speed in his errand of mercy and love. We learn that Dr. Teeling also received prior to his departure a commission as Chaplain in the Confederate Army from President Davis, with the rank of Major.
