Nationals Frightened by A Rooster.--One of the soldiers of General T. R. R. Cobb
's brigade has a game-cock, which he had with him on the day of the battle of Fredericksburgh
By a trick, or signal, which they had taught him, the soldiers could make the cock crow whenever they chose.
Upon each advance of the enemy,
just before our sharp-shooters opened upon them, the cock's clear, shrill clarion rung out on the sulphurous air. This strange defiance, while it cheered and amused our boys, fell with a depressing effect upon the ears of the enemy.
When the foe retired to return no more, the cock, with repeated crows, sounded the victory.--Savannah Republican, January 8
