--A Washington letter writer says: ‘
"That some of the soldiers, particularly of one of the Pennsylvania regiments, are actually begging in the streets to-day.
I saw to-day the mortifying spectacle of an American soldier, in the capital of his country, asking a foreign minister for a few pennies." ’
