The Montgomery (Ala.) Weekly Post contains the following:-- too good to be: lost.--A countryman was in the town of Lumpkin, Ga., last week, and some one asked him how he liked the war news. He replied, Very well. Are you to go? he was asked. Yes, he replied. Are you not afraid? No. If I should see a Yankee with his gun levelled and looking right at me, I would draw out my pocketbook, and ask him what he would take for his gun, and right there the fight would end.

His father, an eminent teacher and scholar, was a native of Massachusetts, and his mother, a Miss Courtney, a native of Ireland. Alpheus Baker was educated by his father, and he began to teach school himself before he was sixteen years old. He was successful in this profession at Abbeville, S. C., then in Lumpkin, Ga., and lastly in Glennville, Barbour county, Ala., where he settled in 1848. Meanwhile he had been studying law. Being admitted to the bar in 1849, he opened his office in Eufaula and began to practice. His success was wonderful.
