A brave lady.
--Accompanying the Rome Light Guards, from Georgia
, who arrived here yesterday, says the Norfolk Day Book of the 30th inst., was the wife of the gallant Captain
, who has determined to share with her husband, to whom she has been united in marriage only a few weeks, all the dangers and privations of the war. She was armed to the teeth, carrying in a belt around her waist, a very formidable bowie-knife and pistol, which she declared would be used whenever occasion offered, and that she felt herself able to use them most effectively.
She was called on while here by numbers of our citizens, who were highly delighted with her agreeable manners, and her heroic purpose.
Her husband, Capt. Magruder
, is a native of Virginia
, and is a cousin of Col. J. Bankhead Magruder
, of the Virginia Artillery service.
