As it is, we are subject to the mortification of seeing them emulate the eagle, with the instincts of the buzzard. Not long since that distinguished ærnant, Professor James C. Patton, of Fetersburg, Va., came over to Richmond on purpose to proffer his services to the Government.--After making several ineffectual attempts to reachGen.
