in the Federal service, lately copied by this paper from the Enquirer, is the name of Captain Gordon Chapin, of the Seventh Infantry. The Enquirer, of yesterday, corrects the statement. In addition to its paragraph, we learn that Captain Chapin has been commander of Fort Buchanan in New Mexico, and, at that distant post, had just heard of the secession of Virginia, several mails having been cut off and the drivers and guards killed by the Apache Indians. He resigned his position, which was one of a responsible and very remunerative character, forthwith, and hastened at once to offer his sword to his native State. Captain Chapin has been in active service on the United States frontier for the last ten years, was with Captain Marcy in his expedition to the headquarters of the Brazos, where a treaty was made with the Camanche Indians, and with General Johnston in his Utah expedition. He is a native of Lexington. Captain Chapin will prove a valuable accession to the Southern Army.
