Promotion.

--Colonel Pickett, of Tennessee, has been promoted to the position of Adjutant General, in the regular Confederate service, of the division commanded by General Lee, now operating in Northwestern Virginia. Col. Pickett, it will be remembered, after a brilliant campaign last summer through the Northern States, advocating the election of Bell, was one of the first, after the election of Lincoln, to declare in favor of immediate secession, sustaining his position in the Tennessee Legislature by a series of arguments which added to his reputation as one among the most gifted of Tennessee's gifted young statement. Joined to his native talents, Col. Pickett has had experience also as a military commander, and will make an accomplished officer.
