Educating Kentucky Soldiers.

--Hon. E. M. Bruce, of Kentucky, has announced that he will pay the tuition of every Kentucky soldier who may have lost a leg or an arm, or been otherwise disabled in the service during the war, who will attend school. Having earned their board and clothes, if they elect to waive a discharge, they have now an opportunity to secure a good education. All teachers in towns, places in which hospitals are located, are desired to see all who are entitled to the benefits intended, and induce them to go to school. All bills will be paid on presentation to Mr. Bruce of Richmond, properly authenticated.--He advises all to study the English grammar, penmanship, and mathematics, thereby preparing themselves for clerical or commercial pursuits and the great battle of life after peace shall again reign.
