Gen. Tilghman and his Mother.--Boston, March 13.--A few days since Mrs. Tilghman, accompanied by her daughter, Mrs. Lowry, came to this city and put up at the Revere House, for the purpose of visiting Gen. Tilghman, the rebel prisoner at Fort Warren. There was some difficulty in obtaining the required permission, but on Saturday the mother and sister were allowed to visit the Fort and have an interview with the prisoner. The first exclamation on meeting him was, 0 my rebel son! and during the conversation she said: When I heard you were taken, I thanked God that you were rescued from secession influences, and were I to hear there was any chance of your being exchanged, I would go on my knees to the President to prevent you from again joining the rebels, for I had rather have you remain here during your life than to know you were among the traitors of the country. --Boston Gazette.
