A Scriptural Coincidence.

--Our readers are aware that Southern Illinois is called ‘"Egypt;"’ that therein, as in Egypt of old, in the city of Cairo, and that Abe Lincoln's forces are there gathering for an attack on the South generally, and Memphis in particular. In the ninth chapter and sixth verse of Moses, we read as follows: ‘"For to, they are gone because of destruction: Egypt shall gather them up, Memphis shall bury them."’
