Major Gen George Crittenden has arrived at Knoxville, Tenn., to take command of the forces in East Tennessee and Southern Kentucky. Gen. Crittenden is the widest son of John J. Crittenden, but, unlike his father and brother, is true to the cause of the South.

We observe from the Greensboro' (N. C.) Patriot that ‘"Messrs Catharine and Julia Bunker, daughters of the Siamese twins,"’ have contributed six pairs of socks for the soldiers. Also, the same report says ‘"Mrs. Adelside Bunker and daughters, family of Siamese twins, seven pairs."’

A little boy became ‘"a mourner"’ at a Methodist protracted meeting, and when the preacher very lovingly asked him if he did not want to be born again, amid broken ob replied, ‘"no, I don't want to be born again!"’ ‘"why,"’ said the preacher, somewhat astonished, ‘"because I am afraid I'll be a gal."’
