A worthy Provost. --S. H. De Vaughan, formerly Provost Marshal of Lynchburg, who ran off to the Yankees, is leading prayer meetings in Alexandria. The Lynchburg Republican says: We have before us now a letter from Alexandria, dated the 2d inst., in which this intelligence is confirmed, with the additional information that this consummate scoundrel visited a Sabbath School in Alexandria and prayed, and after his prayer, in a public statement, declared that it "was the first time he had been allowed to pray since he left the city to cast his fortunes with the Southern Confederacy." What think the members of his congregation in this city of this unblushing liar? and what will every honest man think when we tell him that De Vaughan was one of the loudest prayers at the revival of his church here! The laborer is worthy of his hire; so also is the liar, and this worthy subject of Lincoln has been rewarded for his treason, we are told, with a place in the Alexandria Post-Office
