The Clergy of rebellion.--A correspondent of the Richmond Dispatch, writing from Marion, Ala., says: Rev. H. A. M. Henderson, late of Kentucky, is now canvassing this portion of the State, raising a regiment. He is a Methodist clergyman, and was driven from Kentucky because he would not take upon him the Lincoln yoke. It argues well for the Southern confederacy to see the clergy flying to arms. It is stated here that one-half of the Baptist ministers of this State are in the army, so that in the convention many vacant seats are to be found. --N. Y. World, Nov. 20.

A Chaplain captures A Colonel.--While the Rev. J. D. Rodgers, Chaplain of the Twenty-third Indiana Regiment, was on his was on his was from conference at Rockport, Indiana, to Paducah some weeks ago, an old gentleman came on board the boat at Henderson who attracted his attention. He was dressed like an ordinary farmer, and in conversation appeared to be not very bright. At length, however, he became excited, and when talking, used language which convinced Mr. Rodgers that he was not exactly what he professed to be. Arriving at Paducah, Mr. R. called the attention of the Provost Marshal to the circumstance, when the old man was identified as a colonel in the Confederate Army.

The Rev. H. A. M.

(?) Mr. Black, stationed in Newport, opposite Cincinnati. On one Sabbath he had his church ornamented with U. S. flags and brass eagles; his hymns were the Star-Spangled Banner, the Red, White, and Blue, and Hail Columbia. He prayed that the Union may be preserved, even though blood may come out of the wine-press even unto the horses' bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs. In the course of his sermon he said: I trust our troops will rally and wipe out the disgrace of Manassas, though it cost the life of every rebel under arms.

Kentucky. --Rev. H. A. M. Henderson, who has been for months engaged in making speeches and enlisting soldiers for the C. S. army, in Kentucky, has returned to Montgomery, Ala. He reports to the Montgomery Advertiser that since the Kentucky there has been a great revolution in public sentiment that he knows of hundreds that have openly declared for the South who have hitherto rallied beneath the "Stars and Stripes.

Three-fourths of the fighting men of Kentucky are for the South. The writer of the above speaks very hopefully, and we trust that in the progress of events his best anticipations may be realized.
