After the Russian Style.

--Gen. Bragg, a few days since, informed his Adjutant General, Col. Walter, that he desired pardons to be issued freely and fully to every private who was under sentence of various Court-Martials. It happened to be the Colonel's birthday, and he exercised the power fully, and more than one hundred privates, sentenced to imprisonment, ball and chain, or to labor on Government works with ball and chain for periods of from three to six months, were pardoned and restored to their companies. The list, large as it was, after being submitted to gen. Bragg, was increased by addition of other names.-- Chat, Rebel, 30th.
