Distinguished Visitor.

--The venerable brother of the President, Col. Jo. Davis, is temporarily sojourning in our city as the guest of Capt. D. Haven. Although past the age of three score and ten years he still retains the fullest possession of his great mental faculties and much of the physical vigor and energy of youth. His faith in the early and complete success of our cause is strong and unwavering, and we devoutly hope he may live many years after the struggle shall have ended and rational and material greatness crowned the existence of our young nation. The noble old man has been a great sufferer by the vandalism of the enemy, but with courage undaunted he still proclaims that the only road to peace lies through the triumph of our arms, and is opposed to premature negotiations in every form.-- Selma (Ala) Dispatch.
