Improvised Generals. [For a forthcoming number of Dr. Bun's Revise] By George Intelligent reader, if you were required to make a pair of negro's brogans, would you not reply that you could not make them, because you never learned the shoemaker's trade? Supposing you to be honest, patriotic, intelligent, over fifty years of age, and wholly unacquainted with the practice or science of military matters, and you were offered an appointment as Captain, or Colonel, or General in the Confederats army, with a salary of one, two, or three thousand dollars per annum, would you not unhesitatingly reply, "I know nothing of the art of war; am too old to learn, and will not, for the sake of fifthy lucre, betray my country !"

Twenty Dollars reward. --Runaway in this city, two weeks ago, my boy, Allen, he is 16 years old, slender, and rather small for his age, copper colored with nearly straight hair, small, sharp features, has rather a fine, whining voice; had on when he left a black frock coat, dark drab or lead colored pantaloons, and a military cap. He is no doubt passing for a free boy and may have left the city with soldiers, they under the belief that he was free; if so, and they should see this notice, I would take it as a great favor to inform me. I will pay the above reward for his apprehension. My address is Richmond, Va., (Mayo's warehouse.) mh 12--6t Jas. L. Scoggin.

Bye coffee. --Dr. L. J. Roberts, in a letter to the LaGrange Reporter, warns the public against the use of rye, as a substitute for coffee. He says: The grain when burnt contains upwards of fifty per cent. of phosphorec acid, which acts injuriously upon the whole bouy structure.--In the young it effectually prevents the full development of the osscons tissues, and in the old it lays the foundation for cry gargrene. It possesses the power of dissolving the phosphate of lime, which constitutes upwards of fifty per cent of the bone in man. The same power it exerts over utero gestation, and thereby bring about all the concomitant evils of abortion. Cases of this kind have come under my professional observation during a few months past, and I think facts ought to be spread before the people.
Cottse and tobacco. --Brig. Gen. Gatlin, of the Department of North Carolina, has just issued an order, by direction of the Secretary of War, requiring that all cotton, tobacco, and naval stores, within that department, shall be removed west of the Wilmington and Weldon Railroad; or, if distant from any railroad or navigable stream, put in such places of security that they cannot be reached by the enemy. Such of the above mentioned products as are in exposed positions, must be removed at once, and those less exposed, removed or secured by the 5th inst.; otherwise they will be destroyed by the military authorities. The General expresses a hope that the owners themselves will apply the torch rather than see the enemy gain possession of these much-coveted products.

It is estimated that locomotive engines annually consume the wood from 150,000 acres of land; in twenty years equal to 8,000,000 acres.
