Army tobacco Rations.

--A letter from Gen. Johnston's army says:

‘ The army draws tobacco now and then. You will have an idea of the quality from a remark that fell from a sort of wag the other day. He couldn't use, he said, the smoking tobacco he bought these days; and as for the chewing tobacco they drew, he intended to get a detail to chew it for him, he couldn't do it.
