General Reid, of Missouri. --The sons of Virginia are rallying everywhere to the standard of the South. General John W. Reid, of Missouri, it is announced, is raising a regiment to join McCulloch and Price. Gen. R. is a native of Virginia — a son, we think, of Rev. W. S. Reid, of Lynchburg, and a nephew of Hon. A. W. Venable, member of the Confederate Congress from North Carolina. The county of Prince Edward, which is the native one of General Johnston and General Price, was the birth-place of General Reid's mother. General R. acquired much reputation in the celebrated Doniphan expedition, in which he held the post of Captain, and became a terror to his enemies. He afterwards filled several State offices in Missouri, engaged in the Kansas war, and in 1860 was elected to the United States House of Representatives.
