A brother of Mrs. Lincoln in Congress.

--J. S. B. Todd, who has been elected delegate in Congress from the new Territory of Dacotah, is a brother of Mrs. Lincoln, and a graduate of West Point in 1837. He resigned his position in the army a few years ago, and took up a residence in Dacotah, from which Territory he was appointed a Brigadier-General of volunteers on the 19th of September, 1861. He has been, most of the time, and we believe is now, in command in Northern Missouri. William Jayne, brother-in-law of Senator Trumbull, was the opposing Union candidate.
