--We were shown yesterday a service of sliver, presented to Maj. Thos. F. Fisher
, the popular Quartermaster at Manassas
, as a mark of esteem from his numerous friends in that vicinity.

is now in this city, but will leave immediately for Kentucky
, where he is ordered to report for duty.
It will be gratifying to his numerous friends in Louisiana
and in the army, to learn that this set has been presented as a parting token of regard for him as a gentleman and an officer.
During the many months he has been stationed at Manassas
, Major Fisher
has made himself universally popular, and his departure is greatly regretted by all who have been associated with him there.
He carries to Kentucky
the best wishes of a host of friends.
