Ohio hogs.

--The Lewisburg Chronicle, noticing Gen. McClellan's scheme for subjugating Richmond by marching columns of troops to Abingdon and Covington, and then taking the railways to the capital, says:

‘ We have lived in Lewisburg for nearly thirty years, and during that time many large droves of Ohio hogs have passed by the great Kanawha route to Richmond, but we have no recollection of any of them having returned. It would be us well, perhaps, for Gen. McClellan to remember the reason given by the fox for not entering the apartment of the sick lion, and abstain from leading his porcine followers by a route along which none of their predecessors have ever made returning tracks.
