A venerable volunteer. --In the ranks of the Louisville Blues, now at Montgomery, from Barbour county, is the Rev. Alexander McLenan, of the Methodist Episcopal Church, who with his two sons have enlisted with the company for the term of twelve months in the service of the Confederate States. In a speech made by him at Clayton on their way to Columbus, he remarked that "our cause was honored of God, and He would crown it with success." Mr. McLenan is upwards of sixty years of age, and the greater part of his manhood has been dedicated to the service of the ministry. Equality and justice to the South is a motto to which he has always been religiously devoted.--Columbus Sun.

A correspondent of the Lewisburg Chronicle, writing from Camp Garrett, Barbour county, Va., June 20, gives an interesting account of scouting expeditions in that neighborhood. It appears that Capt.

Says he letter: We passed the enemy's scouts all along the road, but they had not even the courage to fire upon us from the roadside, though they were concealed by the darkness and the bushes, which were as thick as the hairs on a dog's back. We come back in a walk, after firing a salute of twenty guns immediately by the towardly devils. On the next day, the 19th, squads of four of our company took possession of the pike, within four miles of Phillippi, and waited patiently, in ambush, for the enemy's scouts and spies. Calvin Renick.
