A genuine Relic of the Revolution.

--We are informed that not long since, some soldiers of an Alabama regiment, while excavating upon the old battle-field at Yorktown, not far from ‘"Corawallis's Cave, "’ came upon the skeleton of a human being; and in the spot where a pocket should have been, lay a silver dollar. Our informant could not remember the precise date of the coin, though it was towards the close of the last century. It was undoubtedly the skeleton of a soldier of the revolutionary war. Many relics have been found beneath the soil of that celebrated battle-field, but this is the most remarkable one we ever heard of.
