A Spartan mother.--Among those who were on board the Kate Cassel to take leave of the New Bos ton boys, was Mrs. Sanders, the aged mother of Mr. Mahlon Sanders, who went with the company. Five of her sons have volunteered to fight for their country, and when some of them asked how she felt under the trial of parting with all her boys, the grand old mother replied that she only regretted that she had not five more to lay upon the altar of her country.--Oledo (Ill.) Record.
