arly inquisitive and anxious upon the subject, we will relate a dream that a friend of ours had upon the duration of the war, which may throw some light upon the subject. He dreamed that he awoke from a sleep of fifty years, and found himself upon the south bank of the Rapidan. He saw at a little distance from the spot where he awoke a corporal with seventeen men and a wheelbarrow. He approached and asked the corporal what this little gathering meant. "This," replied the corporal, "is the Army of Northern Virginia." "Where are the Yankees! " enquired our friend. "They are on the other side of the river," replied the corporal. "They have the advantage of us in numbers and transportation — as they have twenty-one men and two wheelbarrows — but we expect to get the advantage in position, will whip them, and then the war will end." As this is the best and all the information we have about the probable duration of the war, we give it free gratis for nothing at all.--Abingdon Virginia
