The “little rebel.” --A lady temporarily residing among the Black Republicans in Northern Pennsylvania, writes to her husband in this city that an increase, in the form of a baby boy, had occurred in their family. In her own words, she adds: “Upon the sex of my baby being known, I proclaimed his name to be Jefferson Davis. The indignation with which this announcement was received, can be better imagined than described. No one pretends to call him by his proper name, but instead, the ‘Little Rebel!’ I had silently submitted to insulting abolition harangues until it was supposed I had been cured of all my secession proclivities. Judge, then, if you can, of the great surprise with which I treated the neighborhood in naming my baby!” --N. O. True Delta, Aug. 1.
