Praying on John Brown's sentence seat.--When Gen. Patterson's column had entered Charlestown, Va., and taken possession of the Court House, and raised our flag, to the great indignation of the rebel citizens, the Rev. Mr. Fulton, Chaplain of the [14] First Scott Legion regiment, went into the building and immediately walked up to the bench, and sat down in the chair from which John Brown received his death sentence, and there offered a prayer for our President, our army, our counsellors, and country, while also beseeching God to crush the rebellion, its leaders, and its cause.--Phila. Bulletin, Aug. 2.
