Testimonial to Major Anderson.

--The citizens of Taunton, Mass., have just received a magnificent sword, which they design presenting to the gallant commander of Fort Sumter. The blade is of exquisitely tempered steel, the hill of carved ivory, surrounded with a heavily plated figure representing Liberty. The scabbard is of the richest gold plate, with a representation of Fort Sumter, and military emblems. On the handle is a large gold shield, with appropriate Latin phrases. and an English inscription, thus: ‘"The Citizens of Taunton, Mass., to Major Robert Anderson, U.S. A. A tribute to his courage and fidelity."’
