Cats — affection — Volunteering.

--In Augusta, 1861, a German left this city as a volunteer, leaving behind him a wife and a house cat that he thought much of. He made his wife promise that whenever his favorite cat had kittens she would not kill them, but keep them and their increase until his return. Faithfully the woman kept her word, and this forenoon we saw, ourselves, about her house, in the third ward, in which she lives, in a shed adjoining, and racing about the premises, the old cat and her children, grand-children, great grandchildren, etc., etc., to the number of two hundred and nine cats, catletts and kittens.--Lagrange (Ga.) Democrat.
