On my way I paid a visit to that most interesting, and now especially important region, the "lead mines" of Why the. It is to these mines we must look for those interesting missives that our brave boys know so well how to transmit in and to the cowardly carcasses of Lincoln's minions, when they can have even the half of a chance, and none, among all our troops, with more unerring accu
