Gen. Finegan.

--General Finegan, the hero of Lake City, is an Irishman by birth. In early life he enlisted as a private in the United States regular army. After his discharge he removed to Florida, where he became employed, we are informed, as an engineer. By intelligence and good conduct be prospered in his affairs, married eligibly, and immature at tending citizen. Since the breaking out of the war he has risen in the Confederate service to the rank of Brigadier General and he has just won a victory watch makes him famous at home and honored throughout the Confederacy. In him we have another reminder of the gratitude which we owe to our soldiers of foreign birth, and of the Kindness which we should manifest to them.
