--A young gentleman in this city, so we learn, belonging to the regiment of Alabama volunteers, wrote to his father that at the expiration of his twelve months service he would enlist for the war. His father approved of his determination, and added that he thought a soldier would be looked upon as disgraced who refused to stand by his country now.

"Certainly," replied the son "but tell me how the young men who still refuse to volunteer at all are regarded at home? Is there such a thing as doubts disgrace?"

The explosion of this bombshell from the camp will, do considerable execution, if all get hit who ought to be struck by it. There are yet several young men and old "boys," scattered about in spots, who, if they have business at home, could very really have it attended to during their absence. We still have hope for them — Monseigneur Mail.
