The bogus Governor well Answered.

--The following, from one of our city contemporaries, is too good to be lost:

Pierpont, the bogus Governor of Northwestern Virginia, lately made a call for troops upon J. G. Jackson, Colonel of the Wood mill in under the regular State Government of Virginia. Jackson had been a strong Union man and Pierpont thought he was an adherent of the Lincoln Government. Jackson replied to him substantially as follows:

"Sir, I'll see you damned first!"

This information is derived from a gentleman who lately came here from Baltimore via. Parkersburg.
