Bishop Rosecrans.--As Bishop Rosecrans (brother of the General) was at dinner recently, the conversation reverted to the war.

“It would seem to me, Bishop, that you and your brother, the General, are engaged in very different callings,” remarked a gentleman.

“Yes, it appears so,” returned the Bishop. “And yet,” he continued, “we are both fighting men. While the General is wielding the sword of the flesh, I trust that I am using the sword of the Spirit. He is fighting the rebels, and I am fighting the spirits of darkness. There is this difference in the terms of our service: he is fighting with Price, while I am fighting without price.” --New-York Evening Post, October 8.
