A New way to obtain liquor.--The expedients of soldiers to obtain liquor seem inexhaustible. A Paducah correspondent of the St. Louis Republican says the other day a man started out with his coffeepot for milk; and on his return, an officer suspecting him for having whiskey in his can, wished to examine it, and the man satisfied him by pouring out milk. At night there was a general drunk in that soldier's quarters, ending in a fight. It was at last discovered that the man had put a little milk into the spout of his can, sealing the inside with bread, and filling the can with whiskey. That man is “cute” enough to lead an expedition against Jeff. Thompson.--Louisville Journal, Nov. 30.
