Marriages in the Army a caution.

--A letter from Raleigh (N. C) contains the following paragraph. It needs no explanation:

Some of our soldiers, who have wives and children at home, have married again among the Virginia girls. The sweet, lovely of the Valley and Fredericksburg little think, as they take these gay young gentleman "for better of for worse" that they have left other devoted wives and chaps behind. An instance of this sort tesk dont" a short time ago. A "nice young Lieutenant " of a Louisiana regiment wrote a very long and letter to his wife and children in Louisiana, and about the same time wrote a most affionate loving letter to his newly married bride, who was a few miles away from camp, and scoldentely but unfortunately for him, he sent the wrong letter to each, so that his got the letter intended for the wife of his and she the I guess that made a "fuse in the family," if not in both families.
