A patriotic family.--Mr. Europe Houghton, of Newton, Mass., has a family of five sons and two daughters. Three of his sons are in the Massachusetts First regiment, and two were members of the skirmishing company selected from the regiment some time since. The whole three were in the first Bull Run battle. Another son is in the Massachusetts Sixteenth, and the last of the five has just joined Col. Wilson's regiment, and all will fight bravely in defence of liberty and good government. One of the girls is in the employ of the United States at the Watertown Arsenal, making six out of seven in the service of the Government.--Boston Journal, Nov. 10.
