Hiding behind A Tree.--There is a rebel General named Blanchard at Norfolk. He issued the following order, under date of February nineteenth:

No drill is needed for a hunter to get behind a tree and hit his mark, and if every man will shoot only when he is sure to kill an enemy, he will do good service. If the men have no shot-guns, let them take axes and spades, and obstruct the roads and rivers, under the direction of their officers. Be of good heart, and let our righteous cause make us strong, and with the blessing of God, which we must all ask, we will drive back the foe.

Albert G. Blanchard, Brig.-Gen. P. A. C. S., Commanding Third Brigade.
