Colonel Edward J. Steptor.

--The name of this gallant officer has lately appeared in print as one of those who, though a native of the Confederate States, was in the service of the Lincoln Government. It is but an act of simple justice to him and his numerous friends to state that more than a year ago he had a violent attack of paralysis, and for many months his life was despaired of. He was taken from Lynchburg to Philadelphia for medical treatment, and remained there until about the time the war broke out, when he was removed to Canada, where he is now understood to be in a state of hopeless prostration of mind and body. He is no doubt unconscious of the condition of the country, and of the wrongs his native State is now suffering at the hands of the despot at Washington, or he would have been among the first to come to her rescue.
