Washington, May 1.--A number of the Fire Zouaves, who are encamped in the neighborhood of the Insane Asylum, took a stroll some distance into St. George's county. During their walk, they saw a farmer planting his corn, and, on entering into conversation with him, found that he was afraid that he could not get it in soon enough, for he had to do all the planting himself. The “lambs” immediately took off their jackets and went to work, and soon planted the whole field. The farmer expressed his thanks for their help in the warmest manner, and they returned to their encampment a little proud of their farming abilities.--Wash. National Republican.
