A Chaplain captures A Colonel.--While the Rev. J. D. Rodgers
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
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
