Grant the furlough.

--A Mrs. Howard, of Russell co., Ala., learning that there was an order granting a furlough for the husbands and friends of ladies who should cause to be arrested any deserter from our army, succeeded, on Tuesday last, in having two deserters from the army at Savannah arrested, and we learn they are now held in custody by Major Howard's battalion. Mrs. Howard's husband is in the army at Charleston, and she claims a furlough for him. We do not know that there is any such order on record, but sincerely hope this lady will have a furlough granted her husband, who, we learn, is a good soldier, and has not seen his family in a great while. Should she thus be encouraged we shall soon expect to hear of many more wives engaging in the same noble work.--Columbus (Ga) Times.
