A Chaplain captures A Colonel.--While the Rev. J. D. Rodgers, Chaplain of the Twenty-third Indiana Regiment, was on his was on his was from conference at Rockport, Indiana, to Paducah some weeks ago, an old gentleman came on board the boat at Henderson who attracted his attention. He was dressed like an ordinary farmer, and in conversation appeared to be not very bright. At length, however, he became excited, and when talking, used language which convinced Mr. Rodgers that he was not exactly what he professed to be. Arriving at Paducah, Mr. R. called the attention of the Provost Marshal to the circumstance, when the old man was identified as a colonel in the Confederate Army. He was taken into custody, and is still at Paducah. He was at the Bull Run Battle.--Louisville Journal, Nov. 30.
