Rigidity of ideas was the consequence. The frontier and small posts had been his home. Hence he was quite ignorant for his rank, and quite bigoted in his ignorance.

The frontier and small posts had been his home. Hence he was quite ignorant for his rank, and quite bigoted in his ignorance. His simplicity was childlike, and with innumerable prejudices — amusing and incorrigible — well suited to the tender age. Thus, if a man, however respectable, chanced to wear a coat of an unusual color, or his hat a little on one side of the head, or an officer to leave the corner of his handkerchief dangling from his outside pocket — in any such case, this critic held the offender to whom he would not, to use his oft-repeated phrase, "touch with a pair of tongs." Any allusion to literature much beyond good old Dillworth's spelling-book, on the part of one wearing a sword, was evidence, with the same judge, of utter unfitness for h

The Rev. Mr. Taylor, a native of Richmond, and pastor of the Baptist Church at Culpeper Courthouse, is on a visit to our city for a purpose which we are sure will enlist the sympathies, and we trust the active assistance, of that zealous and influential denomination. The church occupied by his congregation, in common with so many buildings in Culpeper, was greatly injured by the war, which left some of its deepest and most melancholy traces in that highway of contending armies. The conred by the war, which left some of its deepest and most melancholy traces in that highway of contending armies. The congregation are engaged in a laudable effort to repair their almost ruined church edifice, and Mr. Taylor desires to secure to his impoverished flock the aid of their brethren here in their pious object.
