Letter from a General's mother.--The Texas papers publish the following letter from the mother of Gen. Jno. A. Wharton, the famous cavalry officer in Bragg's army:
Eacle Island, Brazoria county, June 23, 1863.Editor Telegraph: I have seen through the papers that my son, John A. Wharton, has been nominated for Congress. I feel deeply grateful to the friends who have deemed him worthy of so high a position. These Grounds, believing the election would not come off before November, doubtless thought there was ample time to hear from him, but by the recent law of Congress, the election takes place in August. The total interruption of communication from east of the Mississippi renders it impossible for him to speak for himself I, therefore, as his mother, feeling I know his sentiments on this subject, take the liberty of withdrawing his name, or rather of saying, I am satisfied, as long as this war for the independence of his country lasts, and as long as he has strength to wield a blade so long will he be found in the field struggling for our liberty, and not in the pursuit of civil office.
S. A. Wharton.
