A chaplain for the Seventh Virginia Regiment.

We published, not long ago, an announcement of the want of a chaplain in the Seventh Virginia Regiment, Army of the Potomac.--The Rev. Raymond R. Minor, a Baptist clergyman of Fork of Willis, Cumberland county, Va., signifies his willingness to accept the position. This gentleman has one son in the Farmville Guards, another in the Hampden Sidney company, and a third preparing for active service as a volunteer under Capt. Jas. W. Morton, of Cumberland. A fourth son is anxious to go; but as he is only in his 13th year, the father thinks he had better stay at home for ‘"seed corn."’ If that is not a patriotic family, we know not where to look for one.
