Jan. 16.--Amongst the prisoners lately returned from Richmond, is Capt. Ralph Hunt, of the First Kentucky regiment. In September last, his regiment formed a part of the force under Gen. Cox, encamped near Gauley Bridge, in Western Virginia. The enemy were desirous of dislodging the General, and about the third of September attempted a reconnoissance in some force. The pickets were driven in, and Capt. Hunt was ordered out with his company to make observations of the force and movements of the enemy, and report thereon.

This bridge is about five hundred and eighty-five feet long, ten feet in width, divided into three spans. The main sustaining parts are one and one quarter inch wire ropes. The roadway is of wood and so ingeniously braced that detachments of cavalry ride over it at a charge, producing no more, or in fact not as much vibration as is induced under similar circumstances on a thorough truss-bridge. The Twenty-eighth regiment, Ohio volunteers, Col. Moor, Capt. Simmons's battery, and Capt. Schonberg's cavalry, marched and counter-marched across it some days since, for

A Patriotic Clergyman.--John P. Bruce, Esq., editor of the St. Joseph (Mo.) Journal, writes thus to his paper: I travelled, in coming here, in company with Rev. Dr. Cox, of Chicago, of the Methodist Episcopal Church. He had been to St. Louis, and bought one of the Presbyterian churches, that originally cost eighty-seven thousand dollars, for thirty-seven thousand dollars. He intends to have a purely Union church. The flag with the Stars and Stripes will be placed on the top of the
e to unite themselves to the Church, will be: Are you for the Union, and have you always been true to the flag?
If these questions cannot be answered affirmatively, the applicant is rejected, no matter how truly penitent the poor sinner may be. Dr. Cox is rather of the opinion that there is no room in heaven for those who do not love this glorious Union, and who have rebelled against the best government in the world without a cause.
The Doctor is an energetic, able preacher, and will visit St
