Characteristic. --Gen. Pillow, being about raising a Brigade of volunteers for the Southern army, sent a message to the noted Parson Brownlow, requesting him to serve as Chaplain. The "Reverend" individual replied in characteristic style, saying: "When I shall have made up my mind to go to hell, I will cut my throat, and go direct, and not travel round by way of the Southern Confederacy." We hope he will try the experiment. Whether he succeeded in reaching his destination or not, by so doing he would rid the land of his presence--"a consummation most devoutly to be wished."--
