Merited compliment.

Major Glass, of the Northwestern Army, in a letter to his paper, the Lynchburg Republican, pays the following tribute to one of the most promising young gentlemen of our army, and son of Dr. Woods, of Albemarle, who, though not arrived at the fighting age of eighteen, has been doing gallant service as an aid of Gen. Floyd:

‘ "Our young friend Capt. Micajah Woods, of Albemarle, one of our aids, left us this morning for home, to enter upon a course of studies at the University of Virginia. He was my messmate, and is the best and most intelligent young man of my acquaintance. We shall all miss him greatly."
