--A letter just received from Baltimore states that Mrs. Gen. Foster, at a dinner, some week or two ago, displayed a set of magnificent diamonds. complacently at the brilliant cross on her bosom, she said: ‘"Some of the spoils of war, sent me by the General."’ Some one intimated that the General was no better than a common rogue, whereupon the lady burst into tears and left the table in a huff.
