New Orleans, April 25.--In the ranks of the Louisville Blues, now at Montgomery, from Barbour County, is the Rev. Alexander McLenan, of the Methodist Episcopal Church, who, with his two sons, have enlisted with the company for the term of twelve months, in the service of the Confederate States. In a speech made by him at Clayton, on their way to Columbus, he remarked that “our cause was honored of God, and He would crown it with success.” Mr. McLenan is upwards of sixty years of age, and the greater part of his manhood has been dedicated to the service of the ministry. Equality and justice to the South is a motto to which he has always been religiously devoted.--Columbus Sun, April 21.
