Gen. Sidney Johnston
Gen. Sidney Johnston's iron will. --In view of the censure recently passed by some over wise persons upon Gen. A. S. Johnston's course, and to show how little he can be driven by threats a Louisiana paper tells the following incident in his life: We recollect that many years ago, while Gen. Johnston, was diving in Texas, General Felix Huston undertook to make him leave the State; but he did not leave; he came to Texas to stay as long as he pleased, and stay he would. Huston challenged him. Johnston accepted the challenge, fought and shot him. The result was, if we remember rightly, Gen. Huston left Texas and settled in this State. We mention this little incident in no disparagement to Gen. Huston, for we knew the man well, p
character, and we can truly say that we never knew a braver man nor a clever gentleman, and we are satisfied, if such a man as Gen. Huston could not make Gen. Johnston travel, such men as now cry out against him have no kind of business with him.
